Twilight Zone - A Most Unusual Camera ... that takes photos of things five minutes before they happen. Two thieves, Chester and Paula, rob a curio store and discover the strange camera. They decide to use it to take pictures at the racetrack. They win every time and leave with a considerable sum, but back at their hotel, the French waiter notices their unusual camera and mentions the curious inscription "ten to an owner." They now have only two pictures left. (Cue up spooky music.)

"In the crowded sprawl of Manila, the living must compete for space with the dead."
  • The author makes this seem like some kind of rarity. In Cairo, I have seen with my own eyes cemeteries which are virtually separate cities within the city, teeming with the poor, totally ignored by mainstream society, virtually ignored by the police and other social services. They usually have no trash removal. There is no sewage control other than tanks which are rarely if ever emptied. There is no electricity except what they can steal. They function much like the favelas in urban Brazil. It is estimated that five million Egyptians live in cemeteries. Details here

From the mailbox:

"Your note that actress Samantha Scott had gone to prison caught my interest and I did some research.  It is a fascinating story with the ending yet to come.  She is up for parole in a month or so. Here are some links including a recent picture, some artwork, and a book written by Aram Saroyan that can be bought for 60 cents:"

A nice piece of intellectual humor which reminds me of the early days of the National Lampoon: Johnny Knoxville's Letters to His Brother, Theo.
  • "After the shoot, Giselle and I spent a blissful afternoon riding in the centrifuge of a local sugar refinery, and discovered that we share passions for Alsatian cuisine, Puccini opera, and stapling our lower lip to roof shingles. Although we have known each other for only a few days, I can already imagine Giselle bearing our children, perhaps while hanging from a bungee cord over a nest of Mexican pit vipers. "

Daily Box Office for Friday, October 27, 2006
  • Saw 3 opened REAL big - it took in almost as much as the next eight films added together. (It was expected to be strong, but not that strong. The experts thought it would cover films 2-5, not 2-9.)
  • Running with Scissors had a solid average per screen to finish tenth, despite a limited run (585 theaters)
  • Catch a Fire bombed. It missed the top ten (the pros thought it would be 7th or 8th) and, barring a major upsurge, is headed for a $2 million opening weekend, about half of expectations.
