Thanks vixmom. I had no idea my box was full. It is now only 80% full. Or 20% empty if I am feeling pessimistic.

Though we are progressing with abandon, I would not like the migration to Page 4 to go unnoticed.

MattH.. I saw 3lbs last night. It was ok but it didn't grab me.... I don't know if I'll keep watching as it is against Boston Legal....



Thanks for your comments. I haven't gotten to it yet. I might be able to get to it tonight before BONES comes on. If so, I'll comment on it later today.

Lunch ran late (we also stopped by Costco), so I only got to a few things to view this afternoon.

I watched the documentary on the JULIUS CAESAR disc. A tiny bit about Shakespeare and more about Marlon Brando with copious clips from CAESAR, MUTINY/BOUNTY, and THE FORMULA. Because they were all in APOCALYPSE NOW together, Dennis Hopper and Larry Fishburne were there singing his praises along with Avildsen who directed THE FORMULA and some other talking heads. (Hopper was also in SAYONARA, but his only comment about that was that Brando hated Josh Logan and directed himself in the picture.)

Seemed to be a scrappy, hastily put together documentary.

The Robert Osborne introduction to the movie was very safe, more of an overview of who was in it, typical of his introductions to films on TCM. So, nothing spoiled for those who might not have seen the movie.

Next I watched last night's VERONICA MARS. Good little missing persons mystery to solve, but the real standout moments for me in the show were between Veronica and her dad. Enrico especially acted the heck out of the scene where it's obvious Veronica's is disappointed in him. You could literally see his heart breaking on camera, and it just broke my heart to see it.

And the end of the episode. Wow! However, I knew something was up when she left her drink cup unattended on the table. Not a smart thing for a woman to do at this college!

HOUSE had agripping episode, too, with John Laroquette giving an outstanding performance as a man coming out of a vegetative state with one day to stay lucid. Wonderful episode.

And David Morse's questioning of the staff is twisting the vise ever-tighter around House's "family." Devious but oh-so-mesmerizing.

Yea!  And if you're interested (I certainly am), the DVD to Doctor Who:  The Complete Second Series will be released on January 16, 2007!  

Well, until I have found new employment there will be a moretorium on nonessential spending......

 Two men were sitting at the bar at the top of the Empire State
 Building drinking, when the first man turned to the other one and
 said: "You know, last week I discovered that -- if you jump from the top
 of this building -- by the time your fall takes you to the 10th floor, the wind
 is so intense that it carries you around the building and back into the window."
 
 The bartender just shook his head in disapproval while wiping the
 bar, but said nothing.
 
 The second guy said, "What? Are you insane? There's no way in hell
 that could happen!"
 
 "No, no... it's true..." said the first man. "Let me prove it to you."
 He got up from the bar, jumped over the balcony and plummeted toward
 the street below.  When he passed the 10th floor, the wind seemed to whip
him around the building and back into the 10th floor window.
 
 He took the elevator back up to the bar. He met the second man,
 who was astonished.
 
 "Oh, my God! I saw that with my own eyes! But that must've been a
 one-time fluke. That was scientifically impossible!"
 
"No, I'll prove it again," said the first man as he jumped.
Again, just as his body hurtled toward the street, the wind appeared to
carry him around the building and into the window.
 
 He took the elevator back to the bar!
 
 Once upstairs, he successfully convinced his dubious fellow drinker
 to try it. "Well, what the hell," the second guy said. "I've seen
 that it works, so I'll try it!" He immediately jumped over the balcony
 - and plunged downward rapidly passing the 11th, 10th, 9th, 8th floors...
 Then his body hits the sidewalk... ďSplat !!!!Ē
 
 Back upstairs, the bartender who had been silent the whole time turned
 to the first drinker, shook his head and said.....
 
 "You know, Superman, you're a real ass when you're drunk."

I cleaned the den this morning, since I got up early enough to do it before starting my morning workout. Still, I have some others chores I need to attend to and will also try to watch the other two shows that I recorded last night before this evening's shows begin.

DR MUSIC GUY:
I was planning to be in LA to attend the Brain opening, but something came up at this end and my plans are now uncertain. If I'm in LA I'd love to join you all for the brunch.

Hi Jeanne....you just keep BK informed of your plans, even if they are "last minute."  Would love to see you for pancakes! :)

I have no idea what resids might be due from on Internet download, but having received a few residuals for the DVD release of episodic shows I've been in suffice it to say you could maybe buy a lunch at MacDonald's for them.

Hi Esteemed BK -- I really had a chuckle reading this; year's ago I finally got my first book of original compositions published.  I waited until the end of the year, and then got a royalty check.  It was something like 11 or 12 dollars !  And you were literally correct ... I think Kerry and I had a hamburger each.

I used to get residuals DR MusicGuy:  I had a cat named Miss Vickie.  Every time she got mad at me, she'd leave me a little residual here and there in the condo.

And then there's the ubiquitous residual soap scum in the shower that must be cleaned every once and again...and again and again.

I used to wonder why, if it was soap, it didn't just wash away.  But...residual skin gets involved...and ugh.

I have been sorting through CDs and DVDs like mad the past few weeks.  I am in the process of managing my collection out of their jewelboxes and keepcases and into aluminum carrying cases (1000 discs per case).

Part of this process is eliminating titles I hate.  Yes, it's the "floccinaucinihilipilification process'  or (sorting based upon) 'the estimation of something as valueless' to me.

Dear BK:  Here's a question for "Ask BK" day -- what DVD titles, if any, are in your "floccinaucinihilipilification" pile?

I know there must be a few....


Hmmmmm?

Wait just a  minute there fella... I thought youse downunder guys said that you were entering summer as we were entering winter!  AHA!!

Caught in your own web of deceit!!

I bet that whole "the toilet swirls inthe opposite direction" thing will turn out to be a tall tale as well!!

And as for all those stories of platypuses (platyipi?) and kangeroos....well!  A mammal that lays eggs and has a ducklike beak and feet!? A giant bunny witha built in front pocket!? Horsefeathers!!

Here is the first of many knock offs from the musical The Brain From Planet X. A video game. Below is the the title creature captured image from the video game



And below is a little bit of information on the game



The year is 1957 and a fleet of flying saucers from Planet X have come to Earth. These saucers are under the control of the evil Brain Aliens who are abducting helpless human beings and taking them away to strange alien worlds to become slaves of The Giant Brain. Luckily for the human race there exist the Otto Matics, robots who police the galaxy in name of all that is good and decent.

You are Otto Matic, the robot who is given the job of saving Earth from the clutches of The Giant Brain from Planet X. You must rescue as many humans as you can while defeating the Brain Aliens and all of their evil followers. Your mission will take you to strange and fantastic alien worlds which are often treacherous and will require Otto to perform amazing feats.

Your rocket ship will take you to each of the planets, starting with Earth. While on each planet you must save as many humans as you can, but be careful because the Brain Aliens will try to abduct the humans before you can save them. When you save humans, they are teleported to your rocket ship. To escape the planet you must also collect rocket fuel. Once The Giant Brain has been defeated and peace restored to the galaxy, you will return to Earth with your human cargo where they will be freed.

In Otto Matic...

    * 10 levels on strange alien planets!
    * Battle 25 different alien creatures!
    * Attack with 7 different types of space-age weapons
    * Fight off giant radioactive killer vegetables!
    * Ski behind giant metal beasts on a sea of toxic ooze!
    * Ride soap bubbles across noxious lakes of slimy goo!
    * Get shot out of a cannon!
    * Smash alien clowns in hovercraft bumper-cars!
    * Drink radioactive potions to grow to 50ft tall!
    * Ride a zip-line to escape mutant radioactive robots!
    * Pilot a flying saucer and lay waste to an alien fortress!
    * Battle the Giant Brain from Planet X
    * And much, much more!
