Daily Box Office for Friday, January 26, 2007
If you keep up with the predictions, there were no special surprises except that Catch and Release finished a solid third while Dreamgirls dropped from first on Thursday to sixth on Friday. There was minimal variation from expectations.

The Top Ten Offbeat Hotels
I don't think I've ever linked to a travel page before in my life, so you can bet that I think this is some pretty cool stuff. The first one is nothing special, but just keep going through the slideshow.

Can ballerinas dunk?
Actually, I suppose almost anyone can dunk on a 7 1/2 foot basket, except maybe Peter Dinklage.

Uwe Boll, already a legend in the realm of bad films, is moving into Lars van Trier territory
His new effort is based on a video game, as usual, but this time it includes graphic nudity, satires of American society, on-camera defecation, Osama bin Laden, and frontal nudity from ... (wait for it) ... Dave Foley

It's Zamfir, master of the pan flute!, playing his most famopus song, Lonely Shepherd.
Actually, I checked the Pan Flute Computer Rankings, and he has fallen out of the top ten. For you younger readers, Zamfir was a staple of late night record offers in previous decades, and was raised to iconic status by frequent mentions in Johnny Carson's monologues.

My God! The world's oldest person curse applies to newspapers as well.
Founded in 1645 by Queen Christina, the POIT was a staple for readers in Sweden throughout the late 17th and 18th century. But its readership dwindled as rival newspapers appeared ...

Long story short, the existing "newspaper" is basically one guy writing a newsletter. Except not any more. Memento mori.

The erotic coloring book
XXX rated. Strange concept. I don't know who might be in the target audience for this project, but, well, what can you say? It was 1975.

North Carolina wants movie scripts to be reviewed by the government
The logic behind it is that the state gives large tax credits for money spent filming in North Carolina. Therefore, in a sense, Carolina taxpayers are footing a portion of the bill. The topic came up to the front burner as a result of Hounddog - the "Dakota Fanning gets raped" movie currently stirring up a Sundance controversy.

Running the Numbers
"This new series looks at contemporary American culture through the austere lens of statistics. Each image portrays a specific quantity of something: fifteen million sheets of office paper (five minutes of paper use); 106,000 aluminum cans (thirty seconds of can consumption) and so on. My hope is that images representing these quantities might have a different effect than the raw numbers alone, such as we find daily in articles and books. Statistics tend to feel abstract and anesthetizing, making it difficult to connect with and make meaning of 31,000 American suicides per year, for example, or 2.3 million Americans in prison, or a trillion dollars spent on the Iraq war. This project visually examines these vast and bizarre measures of our society, in large intricately detailed photographic prints assembled from tens-of-thousands of smaller images. The series is still in its early stages, and new images will be posted as they are completed, so please stay tuned."

Giant fish in Chinese open market
How the hell does one get this home from a street market? (It weighs in around 750 pounds. My dad would have claimed to catch it on 8-pound test line.)
