Tv blabs, movie blabs, book blabs. Lots of blab, but no flab.

If this rumour is to be believed then Ron Howard is going insane.

Jim Carrey in the role of Silas in The Da Vinci Code!?!

Kill us now.

Blink And You'll Miss It

Please accept my apology for the lake of posts lately. I'm deep in the middle of this show and find I have littel time to think of anything else. Thankfully, I do force myself to think of other fun things.

Did anyone notice that Aussie Queer Eye for the Straight Guy has vanished? No? Well that's not surprising. It did terribly in ratings and in production. I read an article that called it a train-wreak and I totally agree. I think the producers went about it totally the wrong way.

For starters the casting was all wrong. They went for a diverse range of guys, which is great, but they were all varying degrees of Carson. The thing that's great about the US original is the fact that not only are the guys unique individuals, they are also individual in their presentation of their sexuality. The Aussie guys were all very (and I feel bad writing this) queeny.

I also think a serious flaw was the apparent lack of budget. Everything on the US show has flare and pizzazz, but this copy was bare-bones.

The best way to compare them would be to say that the original is Oprah, the copy is Kerry-Anne.

I'm sad that Ten didn't have the balls to do something unique with this carbon-copy, and not terribly surprised that it's gone. Another sad statistic for our networks.

I enjoy browsing searching engine referrals to see the odd ways that people end up here. Most are probably disappointed that I don't have what there after.

There are no nipple pictures here.

I really hope the person who searched "making someone talk" was also disappointed.

Too Old For It?

Is it possible that I've grown past the Oscars?

I was not dedicating my full attention to the broadcast.

I looked at who won some of the awards while the actual event was happening.

I yawned through most of the speeches.

I didn't have anything invested in any of the films up for nomination.

Sure it's all glitz and glamour, but maybe it's time to really start taking to the ceremonies' script with a hefty red pen. I liked the idea of the new ways of presenting awards to 'lesser' (which they aren't) categories. Means you don't have to wait for every single winner to cheer, kiss, hug, shake hands and cry with every person along the aisle, but they did have the feeling of being herded cattle and given as much respect.

I pretty much agree with everything Harry says in this article about this year's ceremony.

I miss Roberto Benini who just got up on his seat and wanted to make love with everybody.
