The trailer for Heights
  • "'Heights' follows five characters over twenty-four hours on a fall day in New York City. Isabel (Elizabeth Banks), a photographer, is having second thoughts about her upcoming marriage to Jonathan (James Marsden), a lawyer. On the same day, Isabel's mother Diana (Glenn Close) learns that her husband has a new lover, and begins to re-think her life choices and her open marriage. Diana and Isabel's paths cross with Alec (Jesse Bradford), a young actor, and with Peter (John Light), a journalist. As the interrelated stories proceed, the connections between the lives of the five characters begin to reveal themselves and their stories unravel so that Isabel, Jonathan, Diana, Alec, and Peter must choose what kind of lives they will lead before the sun comes up on the next day."

Wal-Mart Targets Student Parody Site. The retailer summarily smashed the powerful threat, which received nearly 400 hits in its first four days. Wal-Mart's annual revenues, by the way, are more than $250 billion dollars per year. If it were a country, it would have a larger economy than Switzerland or Austria! (What I want to know is this - how the fuck did they find a website getting a hundred hits per day? The only thing I can come up with is that the guy must have hot-linked to their graphics, which showed up in their logs.)

New virus erases all Romanian gypsy music from your hard drive. At last, a virus with some potential! Now if they would just tweak it a bit to erase Cher, Yoko Ono, and Clay Aiken, they'd be cookin' with gas.

Under a proposed Alabama bill, public school libraries could no longer buy new copies of plays or books by gay authors, or about gay characters. I'm shocked, shocked by the implication that there are actually some books written by straight people! I reckon the only book left in Alabama libraries will be that autobiography written by Jose Canseco. Well, I guess Alabama will save a lot of money that might have been wasted on those dusty old libraries. The bill's author originally wanted to ban even some Shakespeare, until he realized that nobody in Alabama would actually read anything written by Shakespeare.

You know, most of us in Alabama can actually read. Hell, there are even some of us who have college degrees! We'd have to know how to read to help keep your site financially stable...

There's actually a Shakespeare FESTIVAL in Montgomery every Spring (see: www.asf.net ). I guess that legislator decided banning Will's books might put too much of a damper on that?

 

See if you can figure out the speaker and subject ... "He's generous to a fault, giving and kind," she said tearfully. "A great father, great with kids ... a brilliant businessman." It is a PROSECUTION witness describing Michael Jackson. Man, that DA is really assembling a powerhouse case against Jacko, eh? If he had brought it to trial a couple of months earlier, Jacko might have been elected pope.

"On May 4, the Epicenter Gallery in San Francisco will become the site of the world's first Whore College, to teach wannabe working girls and guys the ins and outs of prostitution. The kinky college is the brainchild of prostitute and sex activist Carol Leigh and will offer classes in titillating topics like Beauty Standards and Sex Work, Do-It- Yourself Web Cam and Safer Oral Sex Techniques."

The big list of Celebrity Addresses. How to contact almost anyone famous. I suppose it is their agent's office in most cases. (I looked. Maggie Gyllenhaal is not there.)

Maggie would have to be an actual celebrity to be on that list. I don't think she qualifies.
