You think Penelope Cruz lacked credibility as a doctor? Wait until you see her as a cowgirl.
  • Talk about an ornery rootin'-tootin' desperado! Look at the way she's holding the guns. She may be trying to shoot a bird out of a nearby tree - if the recoil doesn't break her arms.
  • I love that stylish three-sizes-too-small hat balanced precariously on the top of her head. I wonder how she keeps it on when she's a ridin' and a whuppin'. Maybe she uses a rubber band like those clowns with the tiny hats.

Christina Aguilera marrying this weekend, hoping to break the Cubs' curse.

Harry Potter casts a spell over the box office.
  • Potter's opening day was the highest grossing non-summer day in movie history!
  • It was the 9th highest day of any kind, and the other 8 were all in May and June
  • Here is the link for the "best days" chart.
  • Despite Potter's incredible numbers, Walk the Line did as well as expected, and then some. It obviously appeals to a completely different demographic.
  • On the other hand, Chicken Little and Zathura were swamped by the head-on competition for the kiddie market. Those two films each dropped about 70% from last Friday.

This is a real headline: "Radish recovering after murder attempt" (I didn't read the article, but it is undoubtedly one of the more interesting radish stories out there.)

Two more clips from Usher's In the Mix.
  • Can Usher bring to film that whole crazy Mobius Strip sense of looping infinity that he brought to his art? Only time will tell. For reference, read that landmark book "Gödel, Usher, Bach"

FEC rules that bloggers are journalists, and are therefore exempt from campaign financing limitations. The essence of the ruling is that a lack of objectivity does not disqualify a media source as a journalistic entity. Hell, Dan Rather and Fox News could have told you that.
