VIDEOS: Here's a little bit of nudity from curvaceous Katherine Heigl in a low budget indy film called Side Effects. It played in some film festivals last year, but was never released theatrically as far as I can see.

In comparing the Oscar selections to the IMDb scores, I concluded that the academy did a respectable job. There were no mediocre films nominated as in recent years (I'm looking at you, Lasse Hallstrom). All five nominees are among the year's top 13 films. Everyone has a pet project, but I can't see any strong support for the argument that Walk the Line was hosed. There were eight films at 8.0. Some of them had to be cut. The two films that obviously were hosed were Sin City and Batman Begins, because Hollywood decided that this is the year of the low budget message movie. (The five nominees are highlighted on the list below.)

Kenya dismissed as "naive and culturally insulting" Tuesday an offer of powdered dog food to feed starving children.
  • Can you imagine? The guy who made the offer thought that the recipients would prefer to give their children some corn-based meal rather than watching them starve to death. Oh, that naive, foolish, culturally insulting monster!
  • I'll have to go back and read my sociology books. I had forgotten all about those cultures in which starving one's children is considered preferable to giving them some corn meal.

Did you know that birds make tools?
  • "A raven has to fish a kind of bucket with food in it, out of a tube. The bird was only given a stick. Just a ordinary straight stick. But very soon the bird understands the stick wont work. So the bird manages to make a stick with a hook to pull the bucket out!"
