First Mexican Space Camera celebrates Cinco de Mayo with pictures of Sombrero Galaxy. OK, the headline is bogus, but the images are spectacular. To get the hi-res pictures, go to the light brown box in the middle of the page.

Bratzapper - the high-tech electrical way to discipline children. Oh, I guess this new science is good and all, but back in my day parents used medieval torture devices, and it was plenty good enough!

'Mr. Floatie' - a man dressed up as a giant turd - crashed a Victoria all-candidates meeting to draw attention to the city's practice of dumping raw sewage in the ocean. The story is accompanied by pictures. Ya gotta see Mr Floatie - he's really cute! Probably the most impressive floating turd since Titanic.

Kelsey Grammer is down - and it's bad!
  • Acting as Master of Ceremonies at Disney's 50th anniversary, Kelsey Grammer spectacularly fell off the stage. He got up, obviously shakem, but continued by saying, "I'll finish this, then take a look at what I've done to my body."

Hollywood takes a beating at the Weekend Box Office May 6-8
  • Kingdom of Heaven took the #1 spot, but took in a mere twenty million. The production budget for that film was $130 million, and the ad/distribution costs have to be another $30 mill or so. It has several challenges. The market research is showing low interest from the critical 18-25 audience; the R-rating keeps out those under 17; and the 150 minute running time reduces the number of potential showings per screen.
  • The Paris Hilton classic, House of Wax, pulled in a limp $12 million for second place.
  • Crash showed the only signs of life, and actually started to pick up a bit as the weekend progressed. On Friday it had the same revenues per screen as House of Wax, but by Sunday it was 40% higher.

What the hell is the deal on Dave Chappelle?
  • "According to a conversation between the [someone playing a key role on the show] and [someone else affiliated with someone on the show], Dave Chappelle has completely gone off his rocker. He is basically AWOL and in need of some serious psychological help. I don’t mean this figuratively. Kiss the season goodbye, and most likely Chappelle will be sued for breach of contract. The guy is just acting nuts right now. "

The Red-headed League presents The Bat-man! in Robin's Big Date! This is a fan film, but with some very funny professional actors. Bat Man is played by the incomparable Sam Rockwell, and Robin is played by Justin Long - he's the kid who kept getting hit with things in Dodgeball, and he has a real knack for physical comedy. (As I recall, Long and Rockwell also worked together in the entertaining Galaxy Quest)

The New Trailer for The Chronicles of Narnia. Disney would love this to be a hit, because it's an instant franchise - C.S. Lewis wrote, like thirteen thousand books in this series. (It's actually a septology)
