Mt favorite e-mail of the day comes from CNN. "Osama Bin Ladin was found hanged by two CNN journalists ..."
  • Yeah, that could be from CNN. I'm sure they often misspell "bin Laden."
  • About as often as they submit stuff to "Other Crap" before it hits the airwaves!
  • And of course, CNN would never proofread. Whoever wrote this headline has a misplaced modifier that makes it sound as if the reporters might have hanged bin Laden! Finally, reporters do something valuable! (You can fix the sentence by shifting it to active voice. "Two CNN journalists found ... ")
  • For the record, it is a trick to distribute a trojan. It was thought to have disappeared two years ago, but it seems to be back...

"I was listening to the radio here in Portland and Jack Black was being interviewed and said that he's still actually up for Green Lantern."
  • I can see why. He's got it all. The sculpted abs. The tall, commanding presence. The square jaw and high cheekbones. The athletic grace. The powerlessness against the color yellow.
  • All kidding aside, Jack Black could be Kyle Rayner, the freelance artist and slacker who became the latest Green Lantern. It would depend on the script, but the storyline is reasonably appropriate. Remember that Green Lantern is not the name of a person, but rather a job description. The Lantern is whichever guy (on whichever planet) currently possesses the ring sent from the Guardians of the Universe, or some shit like that. Earth has had several Green Lanterns, as have other planets. After a long internecine power struggle, the last Guardian sent the last ring to Earth. It is the most powerful weapon in the universe, and it fell into the hands of an ordinary guy. Black could do that. But the premise is VERY similar to The Mask with Jim Carrey.
  • Obviously, the Blackster could not play classic-age GL, when the Lantern for Earth was Hal Jordan, the test pilot without fear.

Superman in 30 seconds, re-enacted by Bunnies

  • This raises an important question or two.
  • Is Otis a sidekick, a henchman, or a minion? In my mind, he is too close to the day-to-day life of his leader to be a mere minion, but not threatening enough to be a henchman. Normally only good guys have sidekicks, but I don't see that rule as hard and fast. I vote sidekick.
  • The dictionary definition of a henchman is "A mercenary adherent; a venal follower; one who holds himself at the bidding of another." By this definition, Otis is a henchman, but I argue that puny comic relief characters cannot be henchman, and must be sidekicks, to be played by a completely different kind of actor. Don Knotts could play a sidekick, not a henchman. Michael Madsen can be a henchman, but not a sidekick.
  • Can lowly minions be promoted from the masses to full-fledged henchmen through the consistent and sustained promulgation of their master's evil bidding, or is a minion always a mere minion?
  • Note: the new definition of minion - "an anonymous and servile dependant" - is very different from the definition used in earlier centuries - "one especially favored or beloved."
  • Do sidekicks have to be loveable and comical? Roy Rogers had Pat Brady. Wild Bill had Jingles. Cisco had Pancho. Are there only comical sidekicks? Is Robin Batman's sidekick, for example? The OED defines a sidekick as "a subordinate member of a pair," which would certainly make Robin a sidekick, but he isn't comical at all. He's obviously not a full partner, so he seems to be the rare "serious sidekick."
