A very long and detailed Q&A with Rocky Balboa.
It's the first time in any of the ROCKY films where I actually engaged in punching with a professional. The reason I wanted to use a professional like Antonio, who was at the time the Light Heavyweight Champion of the world, is that in sports films actors try to duplicate the precision of a real professional athlete and it looks foolish. In this fight we use the HBO boxing format and the same camera positions so it has the look of authenticity. I wanted to have a great deal of physical contact in the ring so I wanted to use a professional who could adjust to the ebb and flow of an awkward boxer like Rocky. Tarver, being a great boxer, could adjust and delivers punches from angles that no actor could possibly duplicate. I was knocked down several times during the fight and we keep those in there. If you want to see some real straight-on fighting and not the usual over the shoulder camera tricks, you might enjoy this fight a little bit more than the other ROCKY fights.

Script Review: Harold and Kumar Sequel
Severely disappointing ... It is too damn soon to be poking fun at the whole 9/11 situation with terrorists aboard planes and all. Too damn soon.

Brad Pitt: bald and ugly
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are the most easygoing stars the Big Easy's ever seen! The couple, who have settled in New Orleans with their three children while Brad films The Curious Case of Benjamin Buttons, are impressing locals with their kindness and compassion.

I've always been amazed by the way the world has cast Jolie as the baddie and Aniston as the wounded sweetheart in the Pitt triangle. If anyone is to blame (and who cares about blame, really), it would be Pitt for messin' around on his woman, but Jolie didn't do anything except be herself. Everyone who meets Jolie comes away as charmed by her as Pitt was, reporting that she's kinda odd, but apparently a genuinely nice person. People who have personal dealings with Aniston do not file the same kind of reports, not by a long shot!

Why are Margarets often called "Peg" and occasionally called "Daisy"?

In search from A to Z they passed,
And "Marguerita" chose at last;
But thought it sound far more sweet
To call the baby "Marguerite."
When grandma saw the little pet,
She called her "darling Margaret."
Next uncle Jack and cousin Aggie
Sent cup and spoon to "little Maggie."
And grandpapa the right must beg
To call the lassie "bonnie Meg."
From "Marguerita" down to "Meg,"
And now she's simply "little Peg."
