No word on any Snake Chambers.
He will be missed dearly. He was 81.

This isn't the first time for Galactica to be in a comic. Marvel had a series in the late 70s
Predictions? This will suck, like most movie/tv-to-comic comics in the past, like Star Wars and Farscape. It's pencilled by Rigel Raynor, who I'm not familiar with at all. But I'll pick it up to give a looksee!!!! Jason & Kent, you should pick this up - being a comic, it won't have any camera zooms to annoy you.
*what's with my Potty Mouth lately?
Satriani will release his 12th album, "Super Colossal" on March 14, 2006.

"NACHO LIBRE" by the director of Napoleon Dynamite!
Because the Apple trailer crashes, click here to watch a small version of the trailer.
Don't know if the movie is going to be good, but the idea of Jack Black as a Mexican Wrestler is pure genius.

I went back and have been listening to ALL of his music again and it dawned on me that this new album feels more like Pretty Hate Machine than his later albums; almost like a "missing" album post-PHM. I forgot how melodic PHM is, opposed to the hard, fast, complex multi-layered composures of Broken, Downward Spiral, and even The Fragile. While Trent's lyrics have always been strong, this album seems more lyrically driven then his previous ones. Usually, there's a nice marriage between his lyrics and the composure of "industrial electronica" (or whatever label one can apply to NIN). This outing, however, lacks the industrial feel I'm used to. I miss it, but atleast he's growing as an artist and trying new things. Yelling angry angst can only go so far I suppose. We all have to grow up eventually to a degree.
Trent's music got me through high school in one piece as well as served as my own soundtrack through college. He deserves more loyalty from me. And so, I'm giving With Teeth yet another chance. And so far, its better than I remember upon my intial reactions last year.
Ang Lee redeems himself as a great filmmaker post-Hulk. Its nice to see him making quality films again. Overall, the movie is solid. Please drop the "That Gay Cowboy Flick" notion that's running rampart through our lame culture. This is a movie about 2 souls who love one another. That's it. Straight, Gay, whatever - its about love. The movie is gorgeous with great performances by all. It has an unspoken stillness way about it that fits perfectly with the characters, the story and the environment.
My only nitpicks are that the movie slows down a bit in the middle; just a bit. I also felt their love/passion for one another came about really fast and sudden. But that's ok - best get to it than drag it on
I suppose. Also, while there were times I truly felt their love for one another, there were other sections where I just wasn't getting it. As if I'd missed a "chapter" or something. Again, these are NITPICKS.
If you haven't seen it or you're planning on catching it on dvd,
I recommend seeing it in the theater while you can. The gorgeous landscapes on the big screen are almost worth the price of admission alone. But the story is good, too, so go see it.
Oh, another nitpick - Heath Ledger doesn't seem to age. Which can mean only one thing: He is an Immortal and will eventually have to battle other Immortals by means of Steel. There can only be One.
I give this 4 Lil Jimmys, out of 5 possible.
"A former tennis champion is transformed into the cyborg Lady Battle Cop to do battle with Team Phantom, a quartet of killers employed by the Karuta crime gang."
Gotta love Japanese sci-fi action flicks!
Looks like there's a possibility of
The Toxic Avenger making its way to the Stage as a Musical!!!!
"Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen, we are the entertainment for this afternoon. Now on the shotgun we've got my man Leroy. And on the cash register, we've got that magic fingers Rico. And last but not least, yours truely, Frank, on the stick."

The order set into motion the exclusion from certain areas, and the evacuation and mass incarceration of 120,000 persons of Japanese ancestry living on the West Coast, most of whom were U.S. citizens or legal permanent resident aliens.
These Japanese Americans, half of whom were children, were incarcerated for up to 4 years, without due process of law or any factual basis, in bleak, remote camps, surrounded by barbed wire and armed guards.
They were forced to evacuate their homes and leave their jobs; in some cases family members were separated and put into different camps. President Roosevelt himself called the 10 facilities "concentration camps."
Some Japanese Americans died in the camps due to inadequate medical care and the emotional stresses they encountered. Several were killed by military guards posted for allegedly resisting orders.
At the time, Executive Order 9066 was justified as a "military necessity" to protect against domestic espionage and sabotage. However, it was later documented that "our government had in its possession proof that not one Japanese American, citizen or not, had engaged in espionage, not one had committed any act of sabotage." (Michi Weglyn, 1976).

What a Tool.
If you haven't seen it, you're lucky - Catwoman was one of the worst films ever put together. Even Halle Berry in a skimp tight black leather outfit couldn't make this even a bad film. Its just abyssmal.

Breaks my heart.
But not nearly as bad as hearing the new NINE INCH NAILS album being played at an American Eagle store during their "Jean Sale" at Christmas. What happened, Trent? You used to be my God. Now you're diluted pop. I'm going to go cry now.
You know you're getting older when all your rock heroes sellout.

-Carrie Fisher, coked out of her mind, singing and stumbling.
-Chewbacca's family, including his wife cooking in an apron.
-Chewbacca's creepy father inlaw essentially getting off on holo-porn.
-Jefferson Starship performing!
-Bea Arthur as the Cantina owner doing a musical number, singing & dancing with Walrus Man.
-Harvey Korman as an alien with a cup for a head wooing Bea Arthur.
-Harvey Korman in drag as a "4 armed Julia Child droid" doing a cooking show.You simply must see it to believe it. It probably sounds like a lot of fun, but its really not. Its pretty much impossible to watch it in one sitting and without fast forwarding.
