'Smoking' Stones star under fire
  • Get this - a sign of changing times. Keef is in trouble for smoking - a regular old cigarette - during a concert. Hell, he probably used to mainline on stage in the old days.
  • It's not only times that change, but people as well. T'was a time when the Scots were the least pussified people and Glasgow probably was the toughest-ass city in the English-speaking world. Now they want to arrest one of the Rolling Stones for firing up a Marlboro. Oh, man, I can't wait to cast my vote for Kinky Friedman as governor. (His platform is the de-pussification of Texas.)

You might want to put Crank on your list of films to keep an eye on ... Amy Smart blowing Statham while he's driving a car, fleeing from baddies, and shooting out the window.
  • Now THAT's some manly shit, but he only needs one hand to shoot, and he could steer with his knees, so where's the glass of scotch that should be in his other hand? I guess we'll have to wait for the Will Ferrell version.

The trailer for the drama Man Push Cart
  • "It's 3:00 a.m. in Manhattan, the hour of rumbling garbage trucks, glaring headlights, and the bluish florescent glow of the all-night delis. Trudging alongside the honking traffic, Ahmad drags a coffee and bagel cart to a busy midtown corner. Hours later, he is swiftly and efficiently selling steaming cups of 'coffee regular' to rushing New Yorkers. In the afternoons, he battles traffic to return the cart to a warehouse, occasionally peddling bootleg DVDs for extra cash along the way. A solitary, quiet loner, Ahmad strikes up slightly awkward friendships with Noemi, a young Spanish woman who works at a newsstand, and wealthy, jovial Mohammad, who is shocked when he realizes Ahmad was a famous singer in South Asia. Through Ahmad's relationships with both his new friends, and his estranged family, we come to understand that he is haunted by a tragedy in his past. A beautifully crafted character study that captures the textures of a very specific New York experience, Ramin Bahrani's 'Man Push Cart' is a subtle, insightful portrait of a man struggling with issues of identity, self-worth, and the harsh realities of finding a place to belong in a vast, often-unfriendly American metropolis."

The trailer for Le Petit lieutenant, a French crime story
  • Refresher course: "bande annonce" is a trailer, and "haute res" means high resolution
  • Description: On the day of his graduation from the police academy, Antoine (Lespert) learns that his request for assignment in Paris has been granted. While his wife remains in the country, Antoine finds a place in town and starts working in the criminal unit run by Inspector Caroline Vaudieu (Baye), who's recovering from a long battle with alcoholism brought on by the death of her son. The police unit becomes a kind of refuge for them both, as Antoine pours himself into his work and Caroline fights to regain the respect she'd lost. Investigating a series of brutal attacks along the banks of the Seine, they begin to form a unique bond - until tragedy strikes and sends them both hurtling to the edge.

Trivia question: which actor gets rained on the most?

Time to restore 61 as HR standard
  • By the time anybody got around to making that decision, the record would be broken. The presumably steroid-free Ortiz and Howard are on pace for 59 and 58 this year! One spurt for either of them, and 62 is well within reach.
  • Baseball is a game contingent on the competitive balance between pitching and batting, and that balance is determined by small rule changes. You want batters to hit more homers? Legalize aluminum bats. You want fewer homers? Enlarge the strike zone and/or raise the mound. Baseball's run production in the 20s and 30s was as high or higher than now, but it was down to deadball levels by the late 60s. There is as much offense as baseball's rulers allow, and they allow as much as the fans respond to. Offense is currently dominating the game, as it did in the 20s and 30s, because the current philosophy says that offense fills the seats, and record-chases are good for the game. (Remember the excitment over Sosa-McGwire.)
  • Plus, look at the size of those mofos. Stan Musial weighed 175 pounds, Willie Mays 180, Yaz 182. Those guys would be anemic shortstops in today's world. Ryan Howard admits to 252 pounds (up 22 pounds from what his card originally said). Ortiz still claims 230, but I suppose he weighed more than that in eighth grade. I'm thinkin' he's pretty damned close to 300. Is it surprising that they can hit the ball farther than Mays could.
  • The weights of the biggest baseball and basketball players are always understated for some reason. Do you remember when the Lakers used to claim that Shaq weighed 299? He now freely admits to 338 in interviews, and that is probably when he's in his best mid-season shape. And that's now, when he's in comparatively good shape, gets back on defense consistently, and looks slim compared to a few years ago. I suppose he's now 350-360 in the off-season. In his last year with the Lakers he was about 370 in the season, and had to get very close to four bills in the off-season. Ortiz can't match that of course, but get that lad on the scale in December, after Christmas dinner, and my over/under is three bills.
