The trailer for The War Within
  • "Written and directed by first time filmmaker Joseph Castelo, 'The War Within' is the story of Hassan, (Ayad Akhtar in his debut performance), a Pakistani engineering student in Paris who is mistakenly apprehended for terrorist activities and forcibly interrogated by U.S. intelligence services. So shaken by the experience, he vows revenge and joins a terrorist cell based in New York City with plans to begin the ground war in the United States. On the morning the attack is due to take place, all members of the cell are arrested except Hassan and one other member. With no alternative and nowhere else to turn, Hassan must rely on the hospitality of his former best friend Sayeed, who is living the American dream with his family in New Jersey. Lying to his friend about why he is in the US, Sayeed helps Hassan get a job driving a livery cab which furnishes Hassan with the money he needs to start manufacturing explosives in the hope of achieving a smaller but still effective act of terror. With each day that passes, we witness Hassan's religious beliefs as they clash headlong with his feelings for Sayeed's sister Duri, Sayeed, and the rest of the family. What unfolds is a profound human and political drama as we explore Hassan's motives as he struggles to carry out his mission."

The life and works of Bruce Springsteen are to be discussed by academics at a conference."
  • Discussions include "A Marxist Perspective on Darkness on the Edge of Town" and "The Boss and the Bible". Other titles up for debate include "Springsteen is to New Jersey what Santa Claus is to the North Pole" and "Feminism and Springsteen".
  • I thought The Comedy Wire's comments on this were brilliant.
    1. "The real Santa Claus of New Jersey is Joe Piscopo. You only see him once a year, and he's begging for change."
    2. "The Marxist Perspective on Darkness on the Edge of Town is to download it free on the internet."

Scientists Decipher the Chimpanzee's DNA. Chimps are said to be as much as 99% identical to humans, "depending on how the comparison is made." Like whether it's made to Jessica Alba or George Bush.

Isn't that amazing? Ron Popeil sells his company (Ronco).
  • He's the guy who invented and sold the Vegomatic, the Pocket Fisherman, and Mr Microphone.
  • It must be the first time a major enterprise has been sold with an infomercial.
  • The price? Not 60 million, not even 55 million, but only $54,999,999.99!

New Orleans update - chaos already, water still rising
  • "New Orleans was left with no power, no drinking water, dwindling food supplies, widespread looting, smoke rising on the horizon and the sounds of gunfire. At least one large building was ablaze Tuesday. Mayor Ray Nagin told CNN that at least 30 buildings had collapsed, but that no attempt had been made to determine a death toll. Nagin said that as of late Tuesday 'a significant amount of water' is flowing into the bowl-shaped city and sections of the city now dry could be under 9 or 10 feet of water within hours."
