Attack on Advertising Provider Jams High-Traffic Web Sites

Finally! Hackers do something useful! About time they go after people responsible for pop-up advertising. Now, if these people would put all that brainpower toward a solution for getting rid of spam email....

Redskins linebacker LaVar Arrington on the acquisition of rookie Sean Taylor:  "Let him be a rookie, let him learn, give him the opportunity to be a rookie," Arrington said. "And if he exceeds that, then whoop-de-do, that's a great thing, but if he doesn't, then he's a rookie and he has to learn what it is to be a professional in this league and that takes a while. . . ."

That is one of best sports quotes I've heard in quite a while!  I hope the QB controversy settles itself.  If Ramsey is smart, he will keep his ego in check and learn as much as he can from veteran Brunell in the time Brunell has left in the league.  If he does that, by the time Brunell retires in a few years, I think Ramsey can step up and be one of the best QBs in the league!  I have the feeling his ego won't allow him to do that, though...

I have said before and will say again (although I know Gail disagrees) that I think NFL rookies should be paid league minimum for at least 2-3 years.  Once they have proven themselves, they can hold out an negotiate contracts.  I think it is complete BS that an unproven college athelete can get drafted, hold out, and get a $15M signing bonus when they haven't even proven that they can compete on a professional level!  The game is becoming all about ego and not about the game.

P.S.  Joe Schmoe 2 on Spike TV tonight!  Yaaayy!!  The return of Bryce, the Stalker!  :-)

Rescue Me

Wow.  I just got done watching the premiere of Rescue Me on the F/X network.  It was co-written and produced by Denis Leary, who starred in it as well.  It was fantastic.  Very touching, very funny, well written.  I highly recommend it.

Oh.  I've been watching The Daily Show, too, lately.  Jon Stewart hosts it on Comedy Central.  It is presented very much like a serious news show, but pokes fun at the absurdity of today's headlines.  The funniest part is that they play clips and soundbites of what people (politicians, mostly) actually say.  They don't alter the sound or put words in people's mouths.  They just compile the dumbest quotes from the news of the day!


Ok, not bad.  12 days since I created my blog and this is my 10th post.  Could do better, could do worse.  This may be turning out to be just a place for me to get out my excitement over various TV & movie projects about which I hear news.  I know Chrissy doesn't mind hearing me get excited about Star Trek and superhero movie news, but after a while, I think her eyes just start to glaze over.  Nothing personal, she just doesn't have the same interest I have in such things.  It's like when she talks about the Civil War.  It is interesting to me and we still talk about it, but I don't the interest level she has.  I will try not to bore everybody by turning this into a mirror site to or

Elsewhere, I tried twice to call my sister Gail yesterday to wish her a happy birthday,  but wasn't able to get through to her.  So... HAPPY BIRTHDAY, GAIL!!  Love you BIG!

Good for Superman, bad for X-Men

Well, what was a rumor last week is a done deal this week. Bryan Singer is now the director for Superman. I think it's a great move by Warner Bros. He's got a proven track record with adapting costumed superheroes to the big screen. Unfortunately, this means Fox will most likely get someone else for X-3. Hopefully, they'll get Stephen Norrington, Guillermo Del Toro or someone with a proven record to take over. Maybe Tim Burton will come back! As long as he doesn't bring Nicholas Cage back with him....

Fantastic Four news

Cinescape - Home - Editorial

Hmmm.... Not sure what I think about this. News so far about this movie have been hit or miss. Tim Story ("Barbershop") got directing duties. Word is that audience testing on his latest movie ("Taxi" with Jimmy "SNL" Fallon & Queen Latifa) scored through the roof. That's why he got the job. Ok, that I can deal with. However, the budget is said to be set at $80-90M. Not much for a summer blockbuster franchise tentpole movie, especially given that 3 of the 4 main characters will be special effects covered for 1/2 their time on screen. Then we get Ioan Gruffudd (british actor - did well playing Lancelot in King Arthur) for Mr. Fantastic and Michael Chiklis (Emmy-winning actor from The Shield) - perfect for Ben Grimm/The Thing. Then Jessica Alba as The Invisible Woman. She's young and hot, but will she hold her own in the part? Don't know. I think the reason so many "comic book" movies have been doing so well is that they are being taken seriously as movies. X-Men and The Hulk had an Oscar-winning directors and X had an Oscar-winning actress. This seems like a bit of stunt casting. We shall see...

McG off Superman

Thank God! I liked the first Charlie's Angels movie, but I don't think McG is the right person for the upcoming Superman movie. I think casting for the big "S" will be very important for this movie, too. Not sure who they should get, but not Jake Gyllenhall or Josh Hartnett. Last I heard, Anthony Hopkins was still on board as Jor-El (Supes' father - played by the late, great Brando in the '78 Donner Superman). That's good. I'll keep my fingers crossed as they look for a new director.

Angry Alien

Found a new site over the weekend. Seeing as I am still new at this blog thing, I didn't think to add it until I was sending a link to my friend, Katy (who lives over in the UK). She has a collection of quirky links on her personal site and her blog was my inspiration to give it a shot! Thanks, Kate!

First Post

Well, this is my first attempt at a blog. I've never had one before. As a boy, I never kept a diary, so I'm rather new at this. I'm keeping this brief, as I don't even know if I am posting correctly. Hopefully, this is the start of something big!
