Dennis Rodman was pulled over and ticketed twice Tuesday while driving his gold-and-black Lamborghini through Colorado in a charity rally race. In between he was involved in a minor crash and later accused of stealing a hat! Just another day for Dennis.

IRONY ALERT: If you're going to call someone else a "character assasin," describing them as "a vicious, cut-throat...beady-eyed, doty, amoral putz" may not be the best way to go.

The trailer for CSA: Confederate States of America. This sounds interesting:
  • "CSA: The Confederate States of America," through the eyes of a faux documentary, takes a look at an America where the South won the Civil War. Supposedly produced by a British broadcasting company, the feature film is presented as a production being shown, controversially, for the first time on television in the States. Beginning with the British and French forces joining the battle with the Confederacy, thus assuring the defeat of the North at Gettysburg and ensuing battles, the South takes the battle northward and form one country out of the two. Lincoln attempts escape to Canada but is captured in blackface. This moment is captured in the clip of a silent film that might have been.

    Through the use of other fabricated movie segments, old government information films, television commercials, newsbreaks, along with actual stock footage from our own history, a provocative and humorous story is told of a country, which, in many ways, frighteningly follows a parallel with our own. After victory, President Davis brings slavery back to the northern states by offering a tax rebate to businesses and households who will buy and own them. Liberals move to Canada. The nation chooses an expansionist policy and conquers Mexico and South America. As world war looms, the CSA takes a non-aggressive stance toward the Third Reich and their move toward racial purity (although not condoning their wasting of possible slave stock by the Final Solution) and makes a preemptive strike on Japan on December 7, 1941.

    Kennedy is assassinated soon after being elected, as it appears he will not only emancipate but also give women the vote. A growing black terrorist base stems from Canada and a Cold War breaks out...complete with the Cotton Curtain being built between the two countries. Through it all, including a contemporary run for the presidency, we follow a political dynasty, the Fauntroy family, who lead the country through its triumphs and tragedies. We arrive to a today that, in many ways, we recognize. Although a nation that is content and prosperous, there is a tremendous divide within and suspicious eye without. Current politicians refer to us as two countries and perhaps, other than geographically, there is no difference between Red and Blue or North and South states. We have always struggled as to whether we are the United or Confederate States of America.

This week's movies - limited release. The Aristocrats - 81% positive reviews.
  • "fucking brilliant."
  • "It's hard to imagine a documentary more foul-mouthed or jaw-droppingly, side-splittingly hilarious."
  • "dear sweet lord is it FUNNY!"
  • "What do you call a movie this fuckin' funny? The Aristocrats."
  • " "It's at once a comedy, a horror film, and a hilariously unsettling testament to the deepest reality of what comedians are: rim-shot madmen, driven to seek out and destroy all that's taboo."

This week's movies: Stealth - 22% positive reviews. I guess Jamie Foxx's hot hand has played out.

Some sample quotres:

  • "a derivative action-adventure that's basically an ultra-produced videogame"
  • "aesthetic modus operandi of replacing all traces of humanity with digitized artificiality."
  • "painful to watch"
  • "laughable flyboy fable runs out of some serious fuel in the storytelling department...glaringly unimaginative as a thumping techno-thriller"

This week's movies: Sky High - 80% based on only five reviews. That score will undoubtedly decline. Some have remarked that it looks too similar to The Incredibles, but it looked pretty cute to me, and I'll probably take my niece.

Art thief drinks $70,000 exhibit. The exhibit was a bottle full of melted water from the Antarctic, designed to highlight the dangers of global warming. The theory is that someone drank it. The artist moaned, "It looked like an ordinary bottle of water."
  • (Well, I guess it won't be that hard to replace.)

Spooky stuff! Listen to the Eerie Sounds of Saturn's Radio Emissions. It sounds like Yoko has moved to Saturn to break up their top rock group.

I have a feeling those ancient Hawaiians didn't have a long life expectancy.
