Microsoft is selling Xbox 360 far below cost.
  • The total production cost is $525 for the console and all items packaged with it. It is selling for $399. Microsoft does not expect its entertainment division to make a profit on Xbox until 2007.

The free online 'Star Trek' spoof is now the most-seen Finnish film of all time! Yup, nearly a dozen people have seen it!
  • I'm not sure how they define "most-viewed," but I think the most-viewed Finnish movie must be one of the ones they did on MST3k. The Star Trek spoof has been seen by 3 million people according to the article, and those goofy fairy tale movies must have been seen by far more than that on American TV. Maybe TV viewing doesn't count in their calculations, or maybe they disqualified those flicks because they were Russo-Finnish co-productions.

The Cowboys show they are for real, but lose a squeaker to the Broncos in OT. The 'boys had more first downs 23-13, and held the ball longer, 36 minutes to 24. Unfortunately, that thar' shit don't count in the standings.

Daily Box Office - Wednesday, November 23, 2005
  • This is a sneak-peek into the weekend, because the new releases open on Wednesday this week.
  • In a field overcrowded with new releases, Rent emerged as the only real winner, with an average of $2000 per screen - about double the average for Walk the Line.
  • Forecasters predicted that Walk the Line would hold the #2 spot, while Rent was not expected to finish higher than #4.
  • One clear loser emerged. Ice Harvest, the comedy/thriller with Cusack and Billy Bob, opened in the #12 slot. It was expected to be around #7 or #8, and to take in about double what it has actually grossed. It is on pace for about a two million dollar weekend, give or take. It finished even below In The Mix, which is still hanging in there in its bid to get NO positive reviews.
  • (If you are wondering, the only major releases with no positive reviews this year are Dirty Deeds and King's Ransom)

Arbitrator rules against T.O.
  • "The players' association responded by saying it intended to dismiss Bloch" (the arbitrator)
  • Yeah, fire the arbitrator for making an extremely obvious decision. That'll atone for the fact that you went to arbitration with no case!!

Isn't 10 Downing Street, the home of the British PM, kind of a dump?
  • "who lives at 8 and 12 Downing? Are they the kind of folks who improve the property values, or do they talk trash and play the stereo all night?"

Jewish group demands Michael Jackson apology. And they want it in his James Earl Jones voice, not that sissy Liberace shit!
  • They want him to make an insincere public apology for candid private comments which expressed his real feelings?
  • "Gee, I'm really sorry people heard my comments."
  • Oh, wait, I have it! Here's the spin: "I'm really sorry I felt those things about Jewish people in 2003. That was then. I'm a new man now. Since then, I have come to an understanding that the Jewish people have many incredible after-theater delis and some excellent entertainers, like Sammy Davis Jr."

Britain's Tony Blair is a big fan of Hong Kong action star Jackie Chan. His favorite movie: Rush Hour.
  • Whew, it's a relief to know that when his prime ministerin' days are over, he can fall back on movie criticism.
  • Ironically, the most popular movie in Hong Kong is "Love Actually." Wait, that's not ironic. But that fact that I called it ironic was, in fact, ironic. Damned post-modernism.
