How many takes did Mr. T need to deliver his lines after that door-busting shot? The dude is 57 and you clearly see the pain on his face. It's like he's in the onset of a myocardial infarction.
- Another YouTube sensation - Ernie Anastos of WNYW-TV in New York, best known for the "Keep f***ing that chicken" on-air gaffe, gets a very nice profile in the New York Times. It takes a tough paper to move the needle from smarm to charm on a local news anchor.
- One of those stories that's anticlimactic after the headline - although I guess it wasn't for this guy (barrump-bump). White supremacist booked for standing on a rooftop and masturbating within plain view of of a nearby freeway. His arrest required the evacuation of a building.
- Sue me, it's another Times link but this one is too good to pass up. California has moved to protect for preservation barf bags, piss bags and other space garbage left behind on the moon, on the grounds it is historically significant stuff made in that state.
- I came across this a couple weeks back and, apropos of nothing, I'll put it here: It's ABC Sports' baseball theme from 1988 to 1989, before CBS made off with the broadcast rights. I know Roundball Rock by John Tesh (North Carolina State alumnus!) gets a lot of love, but this is still the best sports theme I've ever heard. Yes, I know about the UEFA Champions League theme in Europe. De gustibus non est disputandum.
