Britain has placed the Domesday Book online
  • Nearly a thousand years old, it is still used occasionally today to settle property disputes! It is basically a property census completed just after the Norman Invasion, at the behest of William the Conqueror, who wanted to know all about the country he had just acquired.

Lots of pictures of the recent Jessica Simpson See-Through
  • I guess I haven't been a great Jessica fan, but she looks great here, and she certainly has a gorgeous figure.

Paris Hilton is now officially celibate
  • Wow! Maybe it does make some sense to have her play Mother Teresa.
  • She also said she's only had sex with two men in her entire lifetime.
  • (I presume she's not denying having sex with Rick Solomon.)

Daily Box Office for Friday, August 4, 2006
  • Talladega Nights opened well above estimates, with an $18 million Friday. Analysts had it pegged in the high thirties for the weekend, but it should actually hit fifty.
  • Barnyard also performed better than expected, with a $5.5m Friday. If you click on "the forecast" at the same web site linked here, you'll see that the same site pegged it at only $7.5 million for the entire weekend!
  • The other two new releases performed as expected. Buoyed by impressive reviews, The Descent managed to finish a solid third, despite being limited to 2000 theaters. It snuck in there ahead of the big holdovers, Pirates and Miami Vice, each of which is in 3000 theaters or more.
  • Miami Vice lost an alarming 2/3 of its audience from last Friday, dropping from $9 million to $3.1.

The trailer for Mutual Appreciation
  • "Alan (Justin Rice), a musician whose band has just broken up, shows up in New York to pursue his burgeoning rock and roll career. He starts by searching for a drummer for a show he's already lined up, and otherwise goes about the mechanics of self-promotion. He finds a champion in Sara (Seung-Min Lee), a radio DJ who sets her sights on a submissive but uninterested Alan-and finds him a drummer. In his down time, Alan drinks and strategizes with his old friend Lawrence (Bujalski), a grad student, and Lawrence's girlfriend Ellie (Rachel Clift), a journalist. Alan endeavors to keep his shoulder to the wheel, while Ellie finds herself compelled by him. The attraction is mutual, but both parties are reluctant to take a next step."
