Urgent Plea! Does anyone have a copy?

The broadcast began with a crane shot through the trees in front of the Shrine. Commercial sponsors were given top billing, followed by the forecourt entrances of nominees Jodie Foster, Sigourney Weaver, Glenn Close, Tom Hanks and Edward James Olmos, who was with the person he portrayed, teacher Jamie Escalante. Presenters caught by the TV cameras as they showed up included "comedy legend" Lucille Ball and Allan Carr's friend, "beautiful and elegant" Jacqueline Bisset.
Army Archerd served double duty this year, interviewing arrivals and then participating in the opening of the show himself. Standing in the Shrine lobby, the columnist announced, "And now ladies and gentleman, here's one of the great legends of Hollywood. She's back with us tonight -- Miss Snow White." Portrayed by actress Eileen Bowman, this sparkinlingly dressed Snow White possessed a breathlessly screechy voice as she engaged in repartee with Archerd. "I'm a little late, though. Can you tell me how to get into the theater?" she asked. Archerd: "That's easy, Snow. Just follow the Hollywood stars." Echoed a munchkin-sounding chorus, "Follow the Hollywood stars." Indeed, two fantasy movies from the 1930s were being amalgamated; when the camera revealed Snow White's feet, she was wearing Dorothy's ruby red slippers from The Wizard of Oz.
Singing "I've Only Got Eyes for You," Snow White then went to the front row of the orchestra, where she forced a reluctant Michelle Pfeiffer to hold her hand. Martin Landau, Tom Hanks and Sigourney Weaver were in for the same treatment from the squeaking Snow. Vanity Fair observed, "The looks of horror on their faces were unforgettable." Snow's next stop was the Cocoanut Grove stage set where the featured attraction was talk-show host Merv Griffin, who enacted an even earlier incarnation of himself by singing a hit from his days as Freddie Martin's boy singer, "I've Got a Lovely Bunch of Cocoanuts." At Carr's night club that evening were 1985's Jean Hersholt Humanitarian winner Buddy Rogers, Roy Rogers and Dale Evans, Dorothy Lamour, Vincent Price and wife Coral Browne, Alice Faye, her ex-husband Tony Martin, and his current "beautiful wife," Cyd Charisse; each of them had approximately three seconds of air time before being unceremoniously whisked away from the camera. The impressario's supposed big coup never materialized; Swifty Lazar, on the counsel of George Stevens Jr., who had warned an appearance would be undignified, had come to his senses and stayed with his guests at Spago.
And the opening continued. Griffin addressed the fairy tale character, "Isn't it exciting, Snow? Isn't it thrilling? It gets better. Meet your blind date -- Rob Lowe." Looking as if he already realized this was a mistake, Lowe gamely joined his date in a duet of the Creedence Clearwater song "Proud Mary," with the new lyrics "Rolling, rolling, keep the cameras rolling." Meanwhile, heads popped out of the tables at the Cocoanut Grove as the furniture started dancing, joined by heavy-set waitresses wearing oversized Carmen Miranda headpieces. The Los Angeles Herald-Examiner's television reviewer Andy Klein said the dancers were "dressed like tropical mixed drinks," adding that "The whole production number resembled the sort of nightmare you might have after imbibing too many such drinks."
And the opening continued. The Cocoanut Grove was replaced by a replica of the Chinese Theater while an off-stage chorus trilled, "Dreams come true, dreams come true, in the Grauman's Chinese Theater!" Lowe kissed Snow on the hand and the chorus line of ushers made like the Rockettes, doing their kicks while singing "Hooray for Hollywood. " Johnny Mercer's original lyrics were replaced with the likes of "When you're down in the dumps/Try on Judy Garland's pumps."
Finally the opening concluded by going from Snow White to Cinderella: Lily Tomlin "accidentally" lost one of his shoes as she marched down a staircase to make a welcoming address. She seemed as agog by what had just transpired as the audience, noting that "More than a billion and a half people watched that. And at this very moment they're trying to make sense of it." Behind her, a stagehand could be seen retrieving her shoe. To the relief of all, the show cut to the first batch of commericals.

How to avoid the "Bystander Effect"


Have you ever wondered what would happen if you were attacked in broad daylight in front of multiple witnesses? I know I have thought what would happen to you if I attacked you in broad daylight in front of multiple witnesses..
Here is what is likely to happen.

You'll get attacked and no one will help.

People are more likely to get involved if they are the only one witnessing a crime however if there is a large group the "Someone else can help" takes over. The end result is no one will help you. Not even me. I'll point and laugh.

If you are being attacked and you can see people around you single one person out. Yell "HEY YOU IN THE BLUE SHIRT CALL 911!"
It forces them, by embarrassment of inaction, to leap into action and help. It can also be an important motivator for others within earshot as they are now forced to help you fend off your attacker. Try not to insult the witness as that may not result in help and may even cause them to join in on the attack "Hey FATSTUFF in the blue shirt dial 911 FUCKO!" Would be an ineffective plea.

Remember this the next time you are in a shopping mall, Truck Stop, Strip Joint or prison-yard... Wherever you hang out.

It can help you survive the attack.

HELLBOY PSA

How to turn Levi into a creepy republican.


" Just place this under the boy's bed and he'll be one of us in the morning. Oh and did anyone remember to delete his MySpace account?"


Don't forget to stop by THIS Blog. It is a Goddamnnedhootandahalf.

Yes we've all seen it but listen closely this time.



"Three daughters and a son, born in a stable."


Oh and just to fuel the madness here is a picture of Sarah Palin just a few weeks before she went into labor in Texas
A few week before Her water broke and She drove out to DFW Airport to board a plane for Seattle, where she connected to another flight to Anchorage.
A flight in which the crew knew nothing of her condition nor did they detect she was in any stage of pregnancy.

(A check on Orbitz.com shows this one-stop itinerary to take anywhere from 9.5 hours to over 12 hours. That doesn't include wait time or travel to the airport.)

OK, so she makes it to Anchorage. What does she do THEN?

Well, instead of going to a hospital that has a neonatal intensive care unit (remember, she's in labor pre-term, and the baby has Down Syndrome), she drives an hour to the small town where she has influence. And voila! Baby born.

Was the baby's arrival listed on the hospital's web site, along with all the other deliveries?

No.

Sarah Palin says her doctor was an "expert". OK. So, an expert in obstetrics and gynecology -- which are the experts who monitor pregnancies and deliver babies -- is an OB/GYN. Was Sarah Palin's expert -- for this pre-term delivery in an already higher-risk pregnancy -- an OB/GYN?

No.

Was the doctor listed on the Mat-Su Regional Medical Center directory a few days ago?

Yes.

Is she listed there now?

No.

Has anyone seen a copy of the birth certificate of Trig Palin?

Not that anyone knows.

Was Bristol Palin out of school for the five months previous to the birth of Trig Palin?

Yes.

Why was she out of school?

Supposedly for mono, which she quickly overcame immediately after the birth and became pregnant. (Again?)

Yeah...
the picture was taken a few weeks before this all happened.

Oh wait then there is this picture taken 3 weeks before the baby arrived.

To be honest none of them look 3 weeks away from giving birth.
I think they snatched that baby! I think they were going to eat it and then this whole VP thing stopped them. For now.


By the way, how does a girl with MONO get pregnant? Way ta go MOM!

Come on... you gotta love ANIMAL COPS!

So I get this apology to a hate post today



Hello. I am writing to formally issue an apology. I am sorry for
attacking you over something so petty. Although this may only lead to
me getting more revved up, the truth is I came across your commentary
on earth shoes because I have been on crutches for the past two weeks
(and I am sure you really don't care) but I was told that I was no
longer allowed to wear converse and had to invest in some nice shoes.
To top that off, I am incredibly disappointed in the country at the
moment, and although your political views are none of my business, I
am a liberal, vegetarian, going into environmental science and reading
your excerpt gave me the impression that you are a heartless,
republican, narrow minded asshole, and although it is entirely
possible that you are, that is none of my fucking business whatsoever.
So, I apologize for taking my frustrations with the environment and
my currently crippled physical condition out on you. Five years ago
when I thought I was a punk rock, chaos loving, 16 year old, I am sure
I would have found that blog rather amusing. So now, I am a hypocrite
and a prick, and I will blame it on pms and get on with it.

(name removed)

P.S. were you offering me a hug? just kidding. I really am sorry.

Neverending Thursday


It was a Book Donchaknow.



In Michael Ende's most well-known novel, Bastian Balthazar Bux is a lonely, overweight boy whose mother is dead and whose father is so wrapped in grief he barely acknowledges Bastian's existence. (Oooo I really want to see this on the big screen I hope this gets made into three movies, a series, a cartoon and more someday!)


Read about the book here.

Oh my. Next weeks neverending fiasco is a doozie!

Atomic Wednesday

What do Ruth, Dixie, Shasta Butternut, Seersucker and Mink all have in common? Aside from being "Drag" names they were all names of nuclear tests conducted at the Nevada Test Site between 1951 and 1962. A total of 928 atmospheric and underground nuclear tests were conducted at the NTS and each of those tests were christened with a name.
Beginning with Trinity, the first atomic test in 1945, nuclear tests were all assigned code names as a security measure during wartime operations. Test planners and scientists assigned seemingly innocuous code names or inventive nicknames to each test. It is a shame that the names given were not reflective of the devices power or destructive abilities. It would seem fitting to blame your cancer on something that was called "Devastator" instead, you get to blame it on something called "Butternut."

Although the names may seem ironically whimsical, there was a "formal" procedure by which test names were approved. A list of possible names was submitted for internal review, where inappropriate or previously used names were removed form the list. The remaining names were then sent to the U.S. Department of Energy Headquarters in Washington D.C. here the final approvals were made in coordination with "other" government agencies. The approved lists of names were returned to the NTS for future use.

While most of the names met with approval, there was one notable instance of a test name rejection. In 1969, Loa Alamos National Laboratory conducted Operation Mandrel, A series of tests names for grasses such as Seaweed, Jorum, Mintleaf and Cumarin. A proposed name of a test to be conducted in October of that year was "Ganja". Officials decided that calling a nuclear test after the most popular recreational drug of that year was not a good idea and changed the test name to "Milrow," a seismic calibration test conducted in Amchitka Alaska. (These test were deemed too large to occur in the continental U.S. so thank God for Alaska.)

Milrow along with two other test, Long Shot and the devastating Cannikin, not only caused irreversible damage to the island, they alone were responsible for the formation of Greenpeace.
So, I guess something good came as a result of the nuclear program.

Kirk Lazarus in SATAN'S ALLEY




In a time when to be different, was to be condemned...

...and to be condemned, was to DIE...

...one man...

...dared to question his god.

Starring five-time Academy Award winner Kirk Lazarus, and MTV Movie Award "Best Kiss" winner Tobey Maguire.


Website found here

The website is pretty slim on info but it does include everything a film website shouldn't. Improper highlights and animation, and minimal production information, useless buddy icons. I hope they post the trailer soon. I can't stop laughing.
"Crying monkey" indeed!

Neverending Thursday




It was a cartoon doncha know.
Originally aired in 2001 Only 25 episodes aired. The cartoon is based on a mixture of the book and its characters and of the movies. However, it is a cartoon showing early Saturday and Sunday mornings, which means that it is directed to the youngsters and oftentimes specifically sends out a blatant moral message.

In the book, "But that's another story and shall be told another time" is a repeated phrase encouraging the reader to continue exploring the imagination. The cartoon now tells those other stories. Bastian picks up The Neverending Story and begins imagining more adventures, with friend Barktroll (a creature that is part tree, part troll). Those who oppose him often are Xayide and Nimbly.

On videotape...Three episodes are on a 90-minute tape being sold from $9.95 to $14.95. The episodes on the tape are The Belt Of Invisibility, The Three Feeling Stone, and Tears Of Sadness.
No DVD has been slated.

Who knew there were so many incarnations of this damn story. It truly doesn't end.
