Poetry in Translation
  • This is cool. Type in a sentence. Google translates it to German, then French, then back to German, then back to English again.
  • Here is my answer: "we a small number, us a small number, we provide fortunately brothers." Can you guess what I typed in?
  • If not, run your cursor over the following: "we few, we happy few, we band of brothers"

"A COMPLICATED dance, a bite on the rump and ferocious backward kicks are all part of the wombat's lovemaking repertoire"
  • Either that, or they are rehearsing for Kung-Fu Hustle 2.
  • In my experience, that makes wombats eminently qualified to become stewardesses

The Bacardi Rum site has the teaser/trailer for Miami Vice
  • Know what? Michael Mann invented this style, and he's still the master, but it seems stale now. That means the film will rise or fall on the script, not the style. But then again, I guess they all do.

Actual numbers on Howard Stern's move to Sirius
  • "Since Stern announced his move last year, subscribers for the $12.95-a-month service have increased from 600,000 to more than 2.2 million ... less than 20 percent of the audience for his enormously successful syndicated show. Stern says he was told that recruiting 1 million listeners was the break-even point for Sirius, although he's not counting."

AFI chooses the Top 10 films of 2005
  • Their list: Brokeback Mountain, King Kong, The 40 Year Old Virgin, Capote, Crash, Good Night and Good Luck, A History of Violence, Munich, The Squid and the Whale, and Syriana.
  • I realize that it is difficult to fit everything into the Top 10, but Sin City, Batman Begins, and Cinderella Man probably belong up there somewhere.


Here's how they stack up so far (Monday morning) at IMDb. Bear in mind that Munich is not yet rated. Syriana, on the other hand, is absent from the list because it is rated too low.
