Happy belated Fourth of July, y'all. We spent it eating barbecue and multiple chocolate-based desserts, while my stepfather played drums (in Revolutionary costume, no less) down at the American Village. The pups got neutered yesterday and came home this afternoon as frisky as ever, so that's safely been accomplished. And I was all like, "With everyone else home to watch the dogs, I'll really be able to get some work done!" Yeah... not so much with that. It's been a lot more eating and shopping and movie-watching and dozing. However, we do have tickets for Midnight Harry Potter, which is at least something

Ratings for Bush, Congress sink lower. "Like twin Jacques Cousteaus of the political world, President Bush and Congress are probing the depths of public opinion polling as voters exasperated over Iraq, immigration and other issues give them strikingly low grades." I don't know if it's impartial journalism, but it's got flair.

Preteen sisters accused in kidnapping.

11-year-old charged with driving drunk. In Alabama, of course.

5-year-old pins rabid fox to protect family. Okay, that's what I want to hear about the children of America doing.

From the I'm Disowning All of Humanity files (seriously, just skip on down to the next paragraph if you're having a bad day): Man accused of biting off 3-year-old's lip, ear; Dinner guest finds host's wife, son in freezer; Police: Boy forced into sex with mom by teenage gang. What is wrong with people?

Anti-gay ad is no match for Colbert’s logic.

New Drug Deletes Bad Memories. O hai, I loved Kate Winslet in that movie.

Final candidates for new seven wonders.

Nepali "living goddess" fired after U.S. visit.

Orgasm clip spices up EU meeting.

Money falls from sky.

"Potential Breakup Song," Aly and AJ. The one with the curly hair is on the Disney Channel (but we won't hold that against her); the one rocking out on guitar is fifteen. They're sisters; they write their own music, play their own instruments, and sing just as well live (according to Sister Girl). Damn. Can we hear about these two instead of Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton all the time?

xkcd: All Your Base.


Uninterested cat is uninterested. He really is, y'all.

Stephen King Says 'Goodbye' to Harry Potter; J. K. Rowling "Euphoric and devastated" When Writing the End of Harry Potter; "Scar" no longer the last word of final book; Radcakes, Man of the World:
"Girls who want to go out with me just because I'm famous has never been a problem. I'm 17. I don't care. Obviously, if I wanted a deep and meaningful relationship then I wouldn't want to be going out with somebody who is only with me because I'm an actor, but if you don't a relationship like that then it's fine."

However, Daniel is adamant he wouldn't stay with a girl who called him Harry during sex.

"People do call me Harry. I once had a friend call me it by accident. If there's another person in the room called Harry and somebody shouts their name I do respond slightly, which is embarrassing. But no one has ever said it in the throes of passion. That would be the end of that session. Go now!"

It's the "I'm 17. I don't care" part that cracked me up.

Amazing R-Rated Trailer for 'Before the Devil Knows You're Dead.' I haven't watched it; I'm just telling you what they're telling me.

Selling Out: Gucci Hires David Lynch To Terrify And Confuse Consumers Into Buying New Perfume. Warning: do NOT click that link unless you are willing to look at a small inset pic of some horrifying noseless creature from the Inland Empire trailer, to which it's linked. What the hell, y'all.

More Cloverfield Mysteries: Everything I'm hearing from movie news sites seems to confirm that it's a monster movie of some sort, and that it's mostly unknown actors and a few mildly recognizable faces. The two Ethan Haas sites are interesting because they seem to point to some kind of alien influence, but I've also heard doubts--mostly on the IMDB boards, where they point out that "Ethan Haas" is a character on some TV show--that it's even related to Cloverfield at all. On the other hand, the Ethan Haas videoclips have also been removed from YouTube by Paramount, the same as the bootleg untitled-movie trailer. So I don't know. Meanwhile, khaman has a more Hindu-influenced theory.
