Britney's looking to give a respectable magazine first dibs on pictures of her second child.... at no charge. Why? Because money from photos sold was agreed, in the prenup, to go to FedEx. AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

Dumped by text? Britney's ex joins growing club. What, you say? Witness FedEx's humiliation here. Hang in there until about 1:30.

Cate Blanchett puts film on hold to be the artistic director of the Sydney Theatre Company. She's got three films coming out right now and three in post-production, so I'm not exactly in mourning yet.

Humiliated frat boys sue 'Borat' (AP)

The lawsuit claims that in October 2005, a production crew took the students to a bar to drink and "loosen up" before participating in what they were told would be a documentary to be shown outside of the United States. "They were induced to agree to participate and were told the name of the fraternity and the name of their school wouldn't be used," said the plaintiffs' attorney, Olivier Taillieu. "They were put into an RV and were made to believe they were picking up Borat the hitchhiker." After a bout of heavy drinking, the plaintiffs signed a release form they were told "had something to do with reliability issues with being in the RV," Taillieu said.
I grant you, all of this is shady. At the same time? No one told the boys to say that it would be totally awesome to have slaves again, and that you gotta fuck bitches and then leave them. They're basically suing the production for tricking them into letting their ids out. The production might be responsible for that deception, but they're not responsible for those ids.

Emma Thompson on writer's block ("What I tend to do is lie in a fetal position under my desk and weep for a while") and parental discipline ("I will not give you Daniel Radcliffe's number").

Sent in by so many, many people: Will Ferrell, Phantom of the Opera.

The Liberal Agenda revealed ("Mandatory homosexuality"; "Ban Christmas: replace with Celebrate our Monkey Ancestors Day").

Chuck strikes a pose. Also, he may be a vampire. I'm not sure.

Oscar-winning actor Jack Palance dies at 87.

Catholic nun gets 30 years for Rwanda genocide.

megmatthews20: "On an unrelated note, I'm celebrating the Anniversary today of posting every single bloody day for two whole years on my lj, even Christmas, New Years, days family and cats died (I'm compulsive) after 730 days straight of posting I was curious as to whether anyone on this journal has posted that many days in a row, or more even."

What this reminded me of was that Halloween was this journal's third birthday, and I forgot to mention it. (I certainly didn't post every day, though.)

The "bloop," as recorded in 1997. The video itself directs us to Wikipedia: "Coincidentally, the geographic coordinates of the sound are somewhat close to those given by H.P. Lovecraft for the lost city of R'lyeh in his Cthulhu stories." The article also suggests that it's bigger than a blue whale, the largest mammal on the planet--either an even bigger whale, or possibly a really, really big cephalopod. Soooo... it's either Cthulhu, a supergigundo whale, or the kraken. And we haven't heard from it since 1997, so there's no telling where it is now. I don't feel so good about this.

Go Fug Yourself: I just like the guy's t-shirt.

And, finally: Happy birthday Unca Neil!
