Now you know and knowing is just a touch over half the battle.

Daily Musings 3/17

Posted by goldwriting on March 17, 2008

1 – Happy St. Patty’s Day people! This is the only day of the year where you are allowed to pee green and not instantly call the doctor. So, you know, enjoy that.

2 – The divorce between Heather Mills and Paul McCartney is finally over. Or is it? (bum bum bummmmm) She was awarded $50 million dollars, but sources close to the new-ex-Beatle-wife say that she is unhappy and seriously considering going back to the Court of Appeals. Are we sure this is actually a woman we’re talking about? It takes some serious cajones to appeal a $50 million dollar settlement. Personally, if she makes that move, I would take away the whole settlement and give it to a foundation dedicated to fighting greed and callousness around the world. Boo-yah! [via Perez Hilton]

3 – If everything in the world has a level of energy or electricity flowing through it, these ASCII code curtains are right on the money. Sometimes I think people have way too much artistic talent, then I want to find those people and get it from them. Just like they come after me for my overwhelming wealth of useless information. Oh yeah, everybody wants some of that. [via Josh Spear]

4 -The monster movie madness of Cloverfield will be hitting DVD on April 22. Get your geek on as you check out all the featurettes and easter eggs for the planned release. Sweetness. [via ComingSoon via ShockTillYouDrop]

5 – Evidently the rebound into pseudo-fame for Corey Feldman has gone right to his head. During an interview he starting mumbling on about the possibility of a Lost Boys trilogy, with the final chapter surrounding his character turning into a vampire and doing battle with himself. First off, this is a rather shameless ploy to just get more work. Secondly, battling yourself is still illegal in 42 out of 50 states, so that would really limit your viewing audience. [via FilmDrunk]

6 – The Red Band is back! Regal cinemas has made an agreement to bring back the ‘Restricted’ trailers, which usually feature something objectionable to children, like swearing, nudity, violence, unanimated non-Pixar characters, etc. As before these will only be shown before R or NC-17 films. I going to start making a trailer right now for a movie that just has a continuous stream of people saying “F*ck” for 90 seconds, ending nicely on nice couple sitting in dining room chairs, naked, who blow up. I think my opening weekend for that would peak around $42 million. [via ComingSoon]

7 – Um, was there another team on the court? Evidently the Denver Nuggets scored 168 points against the Seattle Supersonics last night. When a team scores over150 points in an NBA game, I think it is legal to start removing their players and replacing them with random marsupials. My personal choices are kangaroos and platypus’, but each coach has their own opinions on that. [via With Leather]

8 – A young Hasidic Jewish actor was starring alongside Natalie Portman in her next film when we was forced to pull out of the project because he was photographed talking to her, which caused his rabbi to threaten to pull his kids out of their religious schools unless the actor dropped out of the film. I mainly posted this in case there were still people out there who thought overly orthodox or conservative religion was not silly. Unless Jesus himself appears before me, I am not dropping a chance to hang with Natalie Portman (who just happens to be Jewish as well, adding a little more irony to the story). [via Starpulse]

9 – This is honestly the most terrifying thing I have ever seen. Someone, please call Charlton Heston right now. He’s our only hopes against the horrors to come. [via With Leather]

10 – For the other moviephiles out there, test your scary amounts of knowledge of at the weekly Invisibles quiz at Filmwise. My average is 4/8, but today I pulled 7/8, meaning this week will be a happy one. To help increase this happiness, feel free to send nice comments, greeting cards full of money, or immediate news about Hillary Clinton dropping out of the race. All of those are wonderful things.
