Mmm, pralines

So Sister Girl called me this afternoon, just for a brief chat, from Savannah. She said they'd probably have dinner at the Pirate's House tonight, and that they spent part of the day on River Street, and did, in fact, swing by River Street Sweets. She said she liked it and that "there was some cool stuff there," although a lot of it did seem kind of tourist-oriented, but they'll definitely go back before they come home and buy some things to bring back. But then:

"Yeah, about the pralines... You know how Mom makes them, and sometimes they crystallize and they're kind of cloudy, instead of shiny? The River Street pralines are like that. They're good, but Mom's are better."

I. Well. Huh. I'm starting to understand why the tins of fudge she used to give to all our teachers at Christmas were legendary in the Jefferson County school system, though.

Guard uses Taser on man holding newborn. What the hell?

Edgar Allan Poe fan takes credit for graveyard legend.

For those of you who missed that golden moment of reality television: "MY OX IS BROKEN! OH MY GOD I HATE YOU!"


Smart Corporate Moves: MTV Tells Publicity Whores Of 'The Hills' To STFU.

Stewart and Colbert Called To Give Evidence in YouTube Lawsuit. "Stewart and Colbert's programs were previously among the most popular clips on the video site - before the suit, Colbert even encouraged fans to upload his sketches." OOPS.

You too can own the Elder Wand, which bears a reasonable resemblance to the one in the last two HP movies as well.

Katie Holmes in talks to play Wonder Woman? Probably not, but I'll report it as rumor all the same.

Eva Green in the Midnight Poison Dior ad. I do believe that is an absinthe fountain in the last picture!

Clive Owen: "the enigmatic impersonation of restraint." Check the quote from Cate Blanchett in the fourth image as well. Heh. Meanwhile, More R-Rated Shoot 'Em Up Clips.

Julie Delpy Talks ‘Da Vinci Code’ Snub.

McKidd Rumored To Play Thor. Aww, I like him. Anyone who was on Rome pretty much gets a free pass for life from me.

Wiseman Helms Escape from New York , which is still apparently starring Gerard Butler, and is still as pointless as it was the last time we heard about it, but, you know: no more so than Rush Hour 3 or anything.

Kidman: Invasion Still Relevant. So apparently this really is a remake of Invasion of the Body Snatchers -- I remember someone complaining that it was a complete rip-off. Well, yes, remakes do tend to be...

Images from Morgan Freeman's 'Feast of Love.'

Cronenberg's 'Eastern Promises' Poster Is Online.

'Enchanted' Poster: Cinematical Exclusive First Look. Aww, and the trailer was really cute, too.

No Hollywood Afterlife Planned For ‘My So-Called Life.’ Between this and the Veronica Mars story the other day, I'm starting to enjoy articles that confirm that things that no one ever thought would happen are still, in fact, not happening. Tomorrow: Uwe Boll still not making decent movies.

(Don't tell him that, though: "your review shows me only that you dont understand anything about movies and that you are a untalented wanna bee filmmaker with no balls and no understanding what POSTAL is. you dont see courage because you are nothing. and no go to your mum and fuck her ...because she cooks for you now since 30 years she deserves it. people like you are the reason that independent movies have no chance anymore. [Email signature:] uwe boll. PS: POSTAL is R RATED . The MPAA understood the satire -- you not -- you dumb fuck.")

Scars That Will Take Time To Heal: Sir Ben On How An Olsen Twin Brought 'Huge Energy' To Making Out With Him. AHHHHHH WHAT.

Heil Kilmer: Val Kilmer Opts Not To Don A Hitler Moustache For 'Hebrew Hammer' Sequel. Yeah... pretty much nothing is going to faze me after the Kingsley thing.

"For no known reason, former L.A. gang girl Leyla Safai has arrived in New York in an ice cream truck named Heartschallenger." Again: nice try, no cigar.

Clay Aiken's bringing 'SexyBack.' Okay, now we're getting somewhere. AUGH.
