What is this fascination with Jessica Simpson? Yeah, she's got a pretty good bod, but she's orange from a crappy fake tan and has a square-jawed, manly, horse-like face. Maxim magazine lost all credibility with me when they picked her as the number one hottie over 99 other hot chicks. Personally, I'm convinced she was once a man. Daisy Duke my ass...more like David Duke.

Six clips from Rize, the streetdancing documentary

Exclusive Clip from Hustle & Flow, which features another underappreciated character actor, Terrence Howard.
  • "Hustle & Flow" is the redemptive story of a streetwise Memphis hustler trying to find his voice and realize his long-buried dreams. Though DJay (Terrence Howard) has always had a way with words, that gift has long been misused; this philosopher-hustler lives a dead-end life at the fringes of society. Anything more feels out of reach. Still, DJay wonders what happened to all the big dreams he had for his life. A chance encounter with an old friend, Key (Anthony Anderson), a sound engineer who has always wanted to make it in the music business, spurs DJay: if he's ever going to make his mark, it has to happen now. He begins to write down his freestyle raps - his flow - and the two team up with Shelby (DJ Qualls), a church musician with a beat machine, to lay down bass-thumping crunk tracks. DJay's metamorphosis affects his entire house, as the women in his life - Shug (Taraji P. Henson) and Nola (Taryn Manning) - find ways to contribute to the creative process. With the impending visit to Memphis of hometown platinum-selling rapper Skinny Black (Ludacris), DJay has to make one last hustle if he's ever going to flow.

The Girl in the Cafe is the best romantic comedy set at a G-8 summit. Hard to argue that point. I don't know anything about the film, but Bill Nighy is one of the most underrated character actors in the business - comedy or drama, mainstream or offbeat, restrained or zany. He's kind of like a middle aged Johnny Depp.

Oprah Winfrey plans to discuss Hermes Paris shop incident on television.
  • "Winfrey believes she would have been admitted to the store had she been a white celebrity."
  • Aha! Now we see the real issue - the divine right of celebrities!!
  • Her belief seems to be purely hypothetical. Perhaps Celine Dion would have been turned away, perhaps not. How could anyone say? Frankly, I don't know how she could form that belief at all, and there is really no reason I can see for Oprah to play the race card, unless there is more to the incident than what is already known.
  • (Amazingly - the store clerks admit that they recognized her, but still turned her away!)

A lot of this whole problem is people confusing semantics. Despite what a lot of people will insist, "evolution" is, in fact, still a theory, not to be confused with its pillar of "natural selection," which is scientifically proven fact.

For example, we've seen birds, cats, monkeys, etc, all take on new characteristics and develop into different species. That's natural selection within a phylum. However, there is still no verifiable evidence of any phylum actually developing INTO another phlyum (e.g., an amphibian in the process of evolving into a lizard), which is the assumption of evolution.

Despite a century of searching for something to validate Darwin's reasoned leap once and for all, the fossil record is incredibly empty of these "transitional" organisms (even the archyopteryx has since been shown to be pure bird and not a dinosaur-bird hybrid, but even if it were, one example out of the millions of species to ever have roamed the earth is not a great track record).

The tug-of-war between creationists and evolutionists has devolved into what it is in part due to evolutionists being overzealous in their desire to (wrongly) elevate a perfectly reasonable theory into an end-all, be-all counter to religious belief.

Upcoming military manpower crisis? Poll: Most Oppose Military Draft, Would Not Want Kids To Enlist Either.
  • "The Army has repeatedly missed its monthly recruiting goals this year, falling short by 42 percent in April."
  • "There isn't a chance in the world that the draft will be brought back," Rumsfeld told a House hearing Thursday.
  • Frankly, I don't understand this. If military recruitment is down, then the U.S. either has to reduce military troop commitments or institute a draft, right? But Rummy is obviously rejecting both of those options, so just what IS his plan? He appears to have all of his eggs in this one basket: "The Army has responded to the recruiting slump by increasing the number of recruiters and offering bigger signup bonuses."

Suggest another option - "outsourcing"!

Considering our undefended neighbours, men between 20-44 years:

Canada - 5.9 million
Mexico - 19.4 million

That should last us a while! When they're used up, we can move on to other countries.

Hell, it worked for the Romans...

Turns out that Oprah incident was a little more complicated than originally reported.
  • The latest version is that the store was closed at the time. They close at 6:30, and Oprah insisted on entering at 6:45 because she could see people inside shopping (in a privately-sponsored event.)
  • My own note: even if the shop was 100% in the right, and they may well be, they have to be some seriously dumb fucks to turn away the single most powerful person in the world in the when it comes to what women buy. This is like running a golf shop and not recognizing Tiger Woods at the door.

Aww, poor little miss Oprah was humiliated? Humiliated really? Get a grip. How self important can one person be? If the store is closed, the store is closed. That's it. And for Oprah to go badmouthing a store because they wouldn't let her in 15 minutes after it closed, I'm sorry, but she's revealing her true self. Not the lovable host she plays on TV. Of course, that's just my opinion, I've never met the woman. She did come to my bar once, but it was after last call so I couldn't let her in...

Spurs win, Duncan gets finals MVP.
  • I was wrong about this series. The Pistons are damned good. After the Spurs laughed away the Suns and the red-hot Nuggets (who had won the teams' last two regualr season games), the Pistons surprised the hell out of me. The finals turned out to be a completely even match that could have gone either way, and which the Spurs finally won based on their having the extra home game (they went 38-3 at home in the regular season). Even at that, the last game in San Antone was tied at the end of the third quarter, and Detroit held a nine point lead halfway through the third. The Pistons coulda shoulda won.

Rhode Island couple celebrates 82nd anniversary today. That is believed to be a world record. (Also probably a record is the fact that their never-married daughter still lives with them - she is a sprightly 78 years old! It's hard to imagine there would be anyone older than that still living with both her parents.)
