"I Hit A Water Buffalo With My Car..."

Kevin Smith is going to do a Fletch movie.

Mark Twain Festival

The first weekend in August is the Mark Twain Festival here in Hartford. I heard about it on the radio, but haven't been able to find a link to it yet. Some good bands playing, Roomful of Blues is the one that I remember. Not sure what they have to do with Mark Twain, but there you have it.

When are the Red Sox going to make a move to get a pitcher or another slugger? The Yanks are out there wheeling and dealing. We've got Pedro on the DL, all kinds of problems in both the outfield and infield. The lineup has been so weird, what with all the call-ups, and the shuffling around has resulted in pitchers hitting -- twice last night!

Huskies In The NBA

ESPN.com grades each team's draft. They don't think much of the UCONN-O-Centric philosophy of the Bulls' draft. I can't believe the Bulls let Mihm go ... because they were sure they could get Voskuhl later?? It'll be strange watching the Bucks play the Bulls next year (not that that game would ever be televised) ... I'll still be pulling for the Ray and the Bucks. Can't tolerate the Bulls.

Call Me Chiisu-san

I'm on the anime trail tonight. Sidetracked, I found out how to say my name in Japanese. Call me Chiisu. Uninterestingly enough, my surname remains the same. (Turns out Saki already had a Japanese name. Ironic.)

Jackie and Jet

Jackie Chan to have a guest spot on Fox's The PJs & Jet Li to play Kato in a new Green Hornet movie. All kinds of news at this site: UMJAMS Anime News.

Monday Night Rants

Dennis Miller is joining Monday Night Football?! Color me intrigued. I don't want to get off on a rant here ... but I don't know if even that will get me to watch the Week 13 snooze-a-thon between.... (kidding Packer fans, kidding, it actually looks like a good schedule coming up for MNF next year.)

Sports Night RIP

I kinda knew I was one of only a dozen or so people who actually watched Sports Night, so it shouldn't have surprised me to learn that it's been cancelled. Why do good shows die when shows like Home Improvement stain the airwaves for years?

The Onus Is On Us

I'm not against e-signatures. I worry about the potential for fraud, but a real signature can be faked too. What concerns me the most about this new e-sig bill is that we (consumers) may find we have a new burden to prove that we're the victims of fraud. What kind of proof are they going to want?

Jet Li News

Jet Li and Luc Besson team up. So what do you get when you mix The Professional and Fist of Legend? Hopefully all the action and none of the pedophilia.

Warp Speed

This may be old news that has already been debunked, but it's pretty exciting to read about what could possibly maybe be the first steps toward time travel (!!!) and interstellar travel (!!!): speed of light exceeded, maybe.

Money Makin'

Cruise is getting 12% of Mission: Impossible 2's worldwide gross. That's over and above his $20 million up front and $30 million (anticipated) from merchandising and video sales. I think it grossed over $70 million domestically in its first weekend. He's going to make well over $60 million before all is said and done, probably quite a bit more. Wow.
