Man arrested for fucking a woman to death
Before you laugh, take note of the fact that he is 30, while she was 75. Once you go gray, you'll never go 'way. Except, of course, in case of death.

Razzies announce this year's nomninees
Basic Instinct 2, Bloodrayne, Lady in the Water, Little Man, and Wicker Man

The only significant omission I saw in their nominees was that Sean Penn failed to get nominated for "All The King's Men," despite delivering what may be the worst performance even delivered by a man not named Shatner.

For comparison, here is my analysis of the worst of the year, based on the critical reviews and IMDb scores.

The Producers Guild of America has picked their "film of the year"
I suppose you've noticed that I didn't mention which film. That's because you would have thought I was kidding. You have to see it for yourself to believe it.

Every ad in Times Square
"Sometimes I get dangerous thoughts in my head, like "I wonder what it would look like to see every ad in Times Square all on one page."

It looks pretty much like my daughter's MySpace page, except for the ugly green background

Weirdest Japanese product - the ol' swan-head penis cover gag
Oldest vaudeville gag in the book. Gummo Marx used to drop his pants and offer to show a bimbo "a fowl sight." "Sir," she would reply, "You have fooled me thus before, and I shan't see your cock again." Turned out the fowl was not a cock, but a swan!

I guess you had to be there. It killed in Ashtabula and Chagrin Falls - basically all over the Ohio vaudeville circuit, and even in parts of Iowa. And in Japan, of course.

In Raw World of Sex Movies, High Definition Could Be a View Too Real
It's a NY Times article, so it requires registration, but it's an interesting assessment of the problems HD presents to an industry which basically consists of close-ups

Japanese Ronald McDonald Hell
Ronald-san is a bit scary. Even scarier than the Willard Scott version.

Mena Suvari Topless Pictures
Snapped by paparazzi Saturday on Miami Beach. One must wonder why a woman with a notorious opposition to screen nudity is taking off her top in the most public place in America except maybe for the Capitol Steps. Obviously she knew the pictures would get taken. Perhaps she knew that her name would be splashed over the internet and she would return to top-of-mind awareness. Or perhaps I'm too cynical.

Americans Remain Disgruntled With Nation's Direction
And yet, ever out of touch, I am 30% more gruntled than in 2006. I am now almost fully gruntled and combobulated.

The Most Popular Myths in Science
Sometimes scientists can be amusing in their naivete. It is a very simple matter to prove that you get less wet by running in the rain than by walking, at least in certain conditions. Simple test. I proved this easily to my ex-wife, since she argued the opposite. I stood with her under a carport six feet from our apartment door in a downpour. I ran for the open door while she walked slowly. I got into the house almost dry. She was soaked to the bone. In fact, the slower she walks the wetter she will be, and the faster I run the drier I will be. I would have been even drier with better foot speed and a running start, but I barely had any drops on me as it was. No equations are really necessary to demonstrate the point with this test, but you better be prepared to give up sex for a while, 'cause she's gonna be pissed. Not only will you prove her wrong, but she will ruin her hair and make-up as well.

Cable News is for old codgers
"MSNBC's research claims that the median age for Mr. O'Reilly's audience is 71, while Mr. Olbermann's is 59. (Fox and CNN both report that the only figures they get for median age of shows with older audiences is "65 plus," and that Mr. O'Reilly's audience falls into that category.)"

That's his median. That means half of his viewers are older than 71!

Bush Rushing To Get Nation In Order Before Hu Jintao's Visit
"If China can keep a wall up for a few thousand years, surely we can clean the old hornet nests out of the greater Raleigh area," Bush said. "If we don't do anything, Hu is going to take one look at this place and wonder how we got to be the world's No. 1 superpower. Seriously, the place looks disgusting."
