If you get this question right, you are a true pop culture vulture. Bob Saget. William Shatner. Jimmy Kimmel. Donny Osmond. Howie Mandel. What do these five men have in common? (Sorry, it's not that they're all douchebags. You need to be more specific.)

The Device, a Patented Process-Indicating Apparatus
  • In Texas we often discuss "goat-roping." The expression has many different meanings, one of which is "doing something that makes your boss think you're busy, but actually serves no useful purpose." This device is a goat-roper's delight.

Weekend Box Office Results for October 13–15, 2006
  • The overall box office was very healthy compared to last year. It was up almost 40%.
  • The Gridge 2 petered out after an excellent Friday to finish below analysts' expectations. It is headed for a gross in the $50-60 range, which makes it a severe disappointment compared to its predecessor.
  • The Robin Williams movie did better than expected, thus justifying the studio's decision to market it as a zany comedy in the trailers and TV spots. (It isn't. It's a political thriller in which the main character is a comedian.)
  • The biblical epic called One Night With The King did twice as well as expected. Films marketed outside traditional media, particularly within the Christian or minority sub-cultures, often fool the experts. The niche marketing channels are obviously more effective than they are generally understood to be, and the analysts are still trying to get a handle on this.
  • Scorsese's The Departed, presumably buoyed by effusive reviews and good word-of-mouth, dropped only 30% in its second week, thus nearly hanging on to the top spot.
  • In contrast to Scorsese's endurance, the Chainsaw movie dropped about 60% from last week.
  • LIMITED (or trial) RUNS. Three true stories tested the waters. The second Capote film, Infamous, did very poorly in a 179-screen trial, averaging only $2400 per screen; the Idi Amin film scored a more encouraging $5900 per screen in its own trial run; the Queen Elizabeth film was the champion in this league, raking in an impressive $22000 per screen.
