Eva Longoria #1 on Maxim's Hot 100. She soared from #91 last year. Longoria was pleased but modestly said that she would have voted for Jolie (#7). Evangeline Lilly was #2, Alba #5. As one of our contributors once observed, we should be so lucky to live in a world in which four women are hotter than Jessica Alba.

Can we get a translation here? What does it say on Bai Ling's crotch? I would have done it myself, but I don't know how to run a crotch through translation software.

The Complete List of the 1,000 Top U.S. Public High Schools. Ready for a shock? The best high school in the USA is in Alabama. Two of the top ten are in Jacksonville. Nine of the top ten are from the South, assuming the South includes Florida, which has five of the nine. Florida dominates the leaderboard with eight of the top twenty.

Damn... so much for that theory of Alabama, or Southern, students not being able to read Shakespeare or anything else... without moving their lips...

Don't think individual school rankings can be used to judge statewide performance, joe. I don't think Alabamians should get cocky just yet...

At first I thought this was a parody site like Landover Baptist. I'm still not sure, but I think it is serious. BushFish.org ... "If you are tired of secularists telling you that The Lord has no place in our government and our public institutions, then show them that you disagree."

The trailer and three clips from Andy Garcia's Modigliani biopic.
  • "The story takes place in Paris in the years after the First World War. Modigliani, a Jew, has fallen in love with Jeanne (Zylberstein), a young and beautiful Catholic girl. The couple have an illegitimate child, and Jeanne's bigoted parents send the baby to a faraway convent to be raised by nuns. Modigliani is distraught and needs money to rescue and raise his child. The answer arrives in the shape of Paris' annual art competition. Prize money and a guaranteed career await the winner. Neither Modigliani, nor his dearest friend and rival Picasso (Djalili) have ever entered the competition, believing that it is beneath true artists like themselves. But push comes to shove with the welfare of his child on the line, and Modigliani signs up for the competition in a drunken and drug-induced tirade. Picasso follows suit and all of Paris is aflutter with excitement at who will win. With the balance of his relationship with Jeanne on the line, Modigliani tackles this work with the hopes of creating a masterpiece, and knows that all the artists of Paris are doing the same. Emotionally-charged and bathed in absinthe green, 'Modigliani' is the decadent portrayal of this tortured genius, his debilitating addictions, and overwhelming passion. The film delivers nothing short of a deeply heartfelt tribute to the artist"

Eleven clips from Layer Cake.
  • "Layer Cake," a riveting thriller set in the drug underworld of the UK, marks the directorial debut of producer Mathew Vaughn ("Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels," "Snatch") and stars Daniel Craig, Colm Meaney, Kenneth Cranham, George Harris, Jamie Foreman, Sienna Miller and Michael Gambon. Sleek, well dressed and polite, our unnamed hero (Daniel Craig) is a consummate professional. Treating cocaine and ecstasy like any other commodity, he has made a fortune for himself by keeping his hands clean and staying under the radar. Having made the decision to retire, his aim is to break free from the world of crime, drugs and violence and live a simple, quiet life with the money he has amassed. But before this can happen, crime boss Jimmy Price (Kenneth Cranham) wants two last favors from him. First, he must track down the missing, drug addict daughter of powerful criminal Eddie Temple (Michael Gambon). Second, he must negotiate the sale of a huge shipment of ecstacy with The Duke (Jamie Foreman), a loose cannon petty crook playing well out of his league. What should be routine transaction is anything but and nothing goes according to plan. Instead, duplicity and hidden alliances become the order of the day, in a struggle for power that reaches from the crack dens of London to the highest ranks of British society. Quickly he learns he is part of a machine much greater than he imagined, and getting out won't be quite as easy as getting in.

California to ban hunting over Internet.
  • "A bill passed by the state Senate two weeks ago would prohibit use of computer-assisted hunting sites."
  • Whether you agree with the practice or virtual hunting or not, you have to think about what California is doing. They are making it illegal for Californians to do internet business with a company which is offering a completely legal service in Texas. Should it be legal in Texas? Maybe not. I, for one, don't like it. But the point is that it is legal. How is Big Brother California planning to prevent Californians from surfing to those Texas-based sites and participating?
  • I don't like the internet hunting idea, but I really don't like the trend California is starting here, because it opens a door that should stay closed. Let's say you live in a locality which forbids nude strip clubs. Should they have the right to forbid you from sitting in your home within that locality and web surfing to internet nude strip shows which are perfectly legal in other states? I vote no.

Also, how are they going to know whether or not one visits such a site? Are California authorities are going to ask ISPs for a report every month of what sites an individual used?
