Who Did Phil Spector Vote For?

Music producer Phil Spector has been sentenced to 29 years to life for the murder of actress Lana Clarkson. Yes I know. Murderers might have voted for Bush as well. I’m sure some did. They just didn’t wear badges announcing the fact to their court appearances.

Al-Qaeda Kidnaps Obama’s Teleprompter

One of the funniest things I have ever read on the internet. From the Peoples Cube. In an audacious raid Friday, al-Qaeda terrorists managed to slip past White House security and seize President Obama’s teleprompter. Their demands were released in a grainy video, which apparently showed the president’s teleprompter, bound and blindfolded but  unharmed, while …

Two More Reasons

To believe seeing Australian tax-payer funded film Samson and Delilah would be a waste of time and money: 1.  Peter Garrett likes it. 2. It won an award at Cannes.

Dolphins Are Nasty

Be sure to pass this one on to your ‘dolphins are our water-siblings’ loony friends. Dolphins are violent predators, pack rapists and baby-killers. The sites linked in that article are worth visiting too. My favourite was Mystical Dolphin Love. We are related to dolphins. And a new breed of humans is evolving who have psychic links …

Time Machine For Sale

Last year a time machine was listed for sale on Trademe, the very successful New Zealand competitor to Ebay. That link will open a PDF file of the listing (now closed). Read the comments. Wonderful!

Samson And Delilah

I would really like to believe that Samson and Delilah, a new Australian film produced on a very low budget with inexperienced actors, is the masterpiece some reviewers claim it is. But I am not hopeful. A friend who saw it told me that it was dull in the extreme, and that the only reason the …

Carrie Prejean’s Boobs

Actually, I don’t think she’s made any. Apart from some very mild topless photos with not a nipple in view anywhere. Miss Rhode Island – Alysha Castonguay – also had some semi-semi nude shots taken. But no one has a problem with those. Alysha says she believes the problem is not with the barely bare photos …

What Not To Do In A Horror Movie

Via the Drunk Report. The top 13 stupidest decisions ever made in the history of horror films. And some general thoughts on staying alive if you find yourself in a horror film. 5. Don’t read from any books covered in human skin, or which have lain undisturbed under the egyptian sands for the last 3,000 …

Dom DeLuise Dies

Comedian and nice guy Dom DeLuise has died after a year long fight with cancer. I’m not really a comedy person, but Dom DeLuise’s collaborations with Mel Brooks and Burt Reynolds had me in tears of laughter. They were horribly low brow (think of Blazing Saddles and Cannonball Run), but simply good natured and funny. That …

X-Men Origins: Wolverine

X-Men Origins: Wolverine took about $87 million on its opening weekend. It’s a good, but not great film. $87 million is enough to bring it into the top 20 all time biggest movie openings. Number one is Dark Knight, which took nearly $160 million. Looking at the top 100 list, it is clear that the reason people …

Are You Annoyingly Happy?

Then Despondex may be for you: Or if not, this Japanese family discussing (to Beethoven’s Fifth) what to have for asagohan (breakfast) may bring a smile: There is also a subtitled version of Asagohan (but the video is not as good).

Catherine Zeta-Jones = Susan Boyle?

Catherine Zeta-Jones has asked to play Susan Boyle in a film version of Susan’s life. I thought this was bizarre at first. But when you see photos of the two women side by side, it might just be possible. Catherine is an intelligent and competent actor, so she might be a good choice. Footage of Susan Boyle singing …

Not Ready To Make Nice

I like the Dixie Chicks, even though their politics are entirely unrelated to reality. This song, though, could be a message from the free world to terrorists everywhere. Not Ready To Make Nice. I love this clip.

I Love Natalie

And I love Susan Boyle. What to do? Just watch it. Crowds love ugly people – Britains Got Talent Parody. It’s a parody of the judges, not Susan Boyle, by the way. ‘There’s something so surprising about someone really ugly being able to do anything..’   Wonderful.
