Dil Se - Chaiyya Chayyia

After watching Spike Lee’s film “Inside Man” I fell in luv with this song. The music video shows an Indian Soul Train. Don Cornelius would approve!

The Jail Index



First, Claudine Longet gets 30 days for murder.

But then, Mary Winkler gets 60 days for murder... so we are up 50%.

But on the non-murder scale... Paris Hilton gets 20-something days for multiple DUI.

But then, Lindsay Lohan gets only one day in jail for the same... WITH the addition of drugs...

But wait... Nicole Ritchie gets a prison sentence of only 80 minutes.

Eighty Minutes?
Maybe the next celebutante will just stick one toe inside the front door of the jail and then turn around and go home?

Is it Legal to Drive Drunk with Cocaine?


I was just thinking... what would happen if I got drunk and high on cocaine... and then got arrested and found in possession of cocaine... and then have a record of previous offenses appear on the police docket?

Well, if my name were Lindsay Lohan, I would get the harsh sentence of...

One Day in Prison

But don’t feel bad for Miss Lohan... for she can claim to be claustrophobic and released from her one day, just like Paris Hilton.

Or, she can claim that her studio made her do a film wearing slutty lingerie on the set... and that could get her sentence commuted to, oh... let’s say eight seconds?

But maybe all this publicity might inspire some of us to go and see Lindsay’s next movie?

Nah...

Back to School

School’s out for summer... but not forever. Get ready for the next semester with these designs from the Dwacon® store! Click here to see them all!

Hillary and Obama. A First?


Consider this... we have had 43 Presidents in the relatively brief history of the United States... and all have been white males. And now, there is a chance of having a woman and an African American man on the same ticket.

This is historic. It is a first Isn’t it?

I thought so, until (thanks to Robert Wuhl), I discovered that before Hillary Clinton, there was Victoria Woodhull, the first woman to run for President of the United States.

In 1872, the Equal Rights Party ticket featured Victoria Woodhull (50 years before women were given the right to vote) and Frederick Douglass.



Needless to say, the Equal Rights Party no longer exists. However, Hillary and Obama are running under the mainstream Democratic party. And whether or not they would actually consider running together on the same ticket... the reality is that these two are the front-runners in their party.

The big question... is America ready?

Is it Legal to Kill Your Husband?

Okay, somebody help me to understand this...

Mary Winkler, wife of a church pastor, shoots her husband in the back with a shotgun while he is sleeping. Well, accidentally, she said.

After the shotgun accidentally misfired into her husband’s back, she loaded her children in the car and drove over 300 miles before being caught by the authorities.

She was arrested and... during the trial, her defense was that she was a battered wife.

Well, not battered as in like being beaten or mistreated... but that her accidentally shot husband allegedly criticized her hair... made her watch porn... and had “unnatural” sex (described by one broadcast journalist as insisting that she wear “slutty lingerie.”)

And so, after 60 days time served, she is a free woman. However, her in-laws are fighting to keep custody of the children while trying to keep her from profiting from book or movie deals from the murder, erm, accidental shooting.

Is this another example of Claudine Longet style justice?

R.I.P. Merv Griffin

I don’t know what was funnier... Merv’s style on his talk show or the impersonations of Merv on Second City TV. Merv entertained many generations of people before, at the age of 82, he finally succombed to prostate cancer.

On Monday, President Bush said, "For over half a century, Merv Griffin entertained America. He was a man of innovation and energy who greeted challenges with laughter and determination. By following his passions and trusting his instincts, Merv became one of our Nation's best-known and most respected entertainers. He introduced Americans to a generation of talent on his talk show, created two of the most successful game shows in history, and led a thriving hospitality business. Merv was also a generous leader who gave back to his community, donating millions of dollars to provide abused children with safe haven and brighter futures. Laura and I are saddened by his death. His family is in our thoughts and prayers."
Amen.

See a Show Get Cancelled in 15-Minutes or Less


The rumors about GEICO cavemen becoming a television series are true. If you check the ABC Web Site, you will see that Cavemen will be on Tuesday nights starting in October.

The critics have lambasted the show... and it would appear that the original cavemen from the GEICO commercials will not appear in the show.

That could be a good thing... considering that, like GEICO insurance... this show may only be around for 15-minutes or less.

Special Guest Stare


I was thinking of that one-hit-wonder who had Michael Jackson singing the refrain of his song, “Sometimes I Feel Like Somebody’s Watching Me.”

I went to the local cyber café to work on the latest screenplay... when the last available privacy seat (one where my back is to the wall and no one can see my laptop screen) was snatched by an old woman who stood staring at the middle of the room until she saw me coming.

So, I took the next best thing... which was only visible from one tall table that was unoccupied.

That changed after a couple pages typed... some old dude plops down and leans forward with his face right in my screen. His heavy breathing and chewing noises didn’t help either. Finally, I put the laptop into standby mode and got up to leave.

As I departed, laptop bag on my shoulder, the guy said, “You get good reception with that thing?”

I avoided the potentially caustic replies and just left.

Toto? Whaddaya tawkin? Dis ain't Kansas...

When you hear the word “tornado,” you typically think of Kansas. Or, maybe... you think of a trailer park in West Virginia.

You might even think of Helen Hunt in that goofy movie where a tornado is the antagonist and flying cows extras on the set.

But, the last thing I would think about is my old haunt, Brooklyn New York.

But, as the New York Times reported, for the first time since the 1800’s, a tornado touched down and tore up some prime real estate in Brooklyn.

But I would imagine that if Daw-thee clicks hur heels tree times, she could get a slice a Tony’s Pizza.

Strange Happenings

So I noticed that the TIVO had rebooted and was looking to see what happened. Then, I started my workstation and noticed a ton of errors from my TIVO desktop software. Did they disconnect me... or maybe a routine update caused things to go foobar?

Strange happenings...
