Not to take anything away from it, but those were some learning, hard, difficult times when I didn’t know what the hell I was doing.” - DAVID BOREANAZ IN THE NY TIMES

BONES has done well because of the strength of stand alone episodes. It's one of the few shows you can tune into at any time and still be entertained without need for serious backdrop. It's funny, warm, and nifty science like all at the same time.

Ruminations of Red, Blue and Gay

Image
Opponents of gay marriage have collected 170,000 signatures in favor of an amendment to end the practice. But the measure needs the Legislature's approval to appear on the 2008 ballot, and lawmakers refused to vote on the proposal last month. Republican Governor Mitt Romney, who is expected to run for president in 2008, and other opponents of gay marriage responded by suing to try to force the lawmakers to act. - International Herald Tribune
I fully expect Romney to use this as a wedge issue in '08, perhaps it's his best defense over being considered too liberal? Either way, I might stand by Obama even if he's against marriage and FOR civil unions...if it helps beat out a Red.Funny about the Red vs. Blue states, and the historical RED SCARE?
"Red Scare" has been retroactively applied to two distinct periods of strong anti-Communism in United States history: first from 1917 to 1920, and second from the late 1940s through the late 1950s These periods were cha…

Best Obama Story Yet!

Image
Early this month, at the invitation of Rick Warren, Obama spoke to a hall full of conservative Christian evangelical activists gathered at Saddleback Church in Orange County. Warren, author of the bestseller "The Purpose Driven Life," is among the most successful and popular preachers in the world. Saddleback is his city on a hill, a sprawling campus set above the smooth, clean boulevards of the most suburban of places. His is the kind of congregation where Warren's joke about the authoritarian rule of suburban homeowners associations brings a knowing laugh.

It is definitely not the sort of place you would expect a liberal big-city Democrat to feel at home.

Warren has an aphoristic style of preaching. Remarking on opposing political inclinations, he said: "People ask, 'Pastor Rick, are you right-wing or left-wing?' I'm for the whole bird. One-winged birds fly in circles."

To keep the bird flying straight, Warren had also invited one of Obama's Sena…

Depp as Freddie Mercury: Confirmed talks!

Originally uploaded by crush with eyeliner. He is a keen guitar player whose admiration for the Rolling Stones stretched to modelling his character, the pirate Jack Sparrow, on the mannerisms of Keith Richards. Now the Pirates of the Caribbean star, Johnny Depp, is being lined up to play a rock star for real in a biopic of the late Queen frontman, Freddie Mercury. Robert de Niro's company, Tribeca Productions, is said to be behind the project, which Brian May, the Queen guitarist, confirmed was in development. "Discussions are at an early stage," he said on his website. May described Depp as "fantastic". "He would be a worthy counterpart for Freddie on screen. I don't think I can say any more right now," he added...- Independent UK

Sounds like they need one hell of a script, maybe I should get on that...hmm.

San Luis Obispo
, San Luis, or SLO (Spanish for St. Louis, the Bishop) is a city in California, roughly located halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles on the Central Coast.


One of California’s oldest communities, it began with the founding of Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa in 1772 by Father Junípero Serra, on the site of a Chumash village called Tilhini...

Colin Powell Lied, 100,000 Died - Demonstration Toronto - Wednesday, March 15, 2006 - 059
Originally uploaded by photopia / HiMY SYeD. ``All of my contacts within the Army suggest that the Army has a serious problem in the active force, and it's a problem that will spread into the Guard and Reserves,'' Powell said.

Any proposal to add forces should be made with a ``clear'' mission outlined and a definite schedule for how long they will be there, Powell said. The U.S. military can't quell the sectarian violence in the country, a task that must be accomplished by the Iraqis, he said.

Powell said the bipartisan Iraq Study Group was correct in its assessment that the situation in Iraq is ``grave and deteriorating.'' The independent commission said the U.S. should set a goal of pulling back most combat troops by early 2008 and focus on training Iraqi police and military forces.- CP on Face the Nation

Interesting that the Dem crowd is thinning so quick, maybe the party's got it together and realizes a lesser filled field only increases the overall chances of Our Champion? Onwards LEFT!

Dr. Callie RULES

Size-12 Bliss SIZE doesn't matter any more to "Grey's Anatomy" star Sara Ramirez , who plays Dr. Callie Torres. "There's catered food everywhere you look - I gained 25 pounds in four months," the big-boned hottie tells January's Glamour. "Nobody ever said, 'You're getting a little heavy.' Instead, they wrote scenes for me to dance around half-naked in my underwear. I went to Shonda Rhimes, the executive producer, and said . . . 'Why me? . . . She just looked at me and said, 'Work it.' " Ramirez did, and is comfy as a size 12. -Page SixCheck out Sararamirez.com for Sara's Tony acceptance speech, she won for Spamalot....I had no idea! Nor did I know she's from San Diego, GO CALI!
What others see is those reviews, a Tony Award and back home, proud people like Ole Kittleson speaking of her with tears in their eyes. "She was such a wonderful role model for the Latino kids," says Kittleson. "She had…

SPIKE LEE DOES THE RIOT

Now comes word that Lee will make the the violent race-based eruption in Los Angles (following the 1992 "not guilty" verdicts of four white officers who were videotaped beating motorist Rodney King) the subject of his next film.According to 'Variety,' 'L.A. Riots' will be produced by Brian Grazer’s Imagine Entertainment under Universal Pictures and John Ridley ('Three Kings') is attached as the project's scriptwriter.

"This isn't about some cavalcade of stars, but rather a truthful and realistic examination of what happened, what the ramifications were and where we are now, in hopes that something like this doesn't happen again,"Lee told the industry trade magazine.The filmmaker is also reportedly developing a sequel for 'Inside Man,' which is his highest grossing film, to date starring Denzel Washington, Jody Foster and Clive Owen.

David Lynch's New Movie Weirder Than The Last As Was Expected

MOVIE REVIEW | INLAND EMPIRE
The Trippy Dream Factory of David Lynch
By MANOHLA DARGISThere are, in the movies, few places creepier to spend time than in David Lynch’s head. It is a head where the wild things grow, twisting and spreading like vines, like fingers, and taking us in their captive embrace. Over the last three decades these wild things have laid siege to us even as they have mutated: the deformed baby of “Eraserhead” evolving into the anguished distortions of “The Elephant Man,” the Reagan-era surrealism of “Blue Velvet,” the serial home invasion in “Twin Peaks” and the meta-cinematic masterpiece “Mulholland Drive,” a dispatch from that smog-choked boulevard of broken dreams called Hollywood.
Mr. Lynch revisits that bewitched boulevard in the extraordinary, savagely uncompromised “Inland Empire,” his first feature in five years, his first shot in video and one of the few films I’ve seen this year that deserves to be called art. Dark as pitch, as noir, as hate, by turns beaut…

Johnny Depp is Dali?

Image
One day it will have to be officially admitted that what we have christened reality is an even greater illusion than the world of dreams. - Salvador Dali

RICHARD AND Robert Dupont, of the old Andy Warhol daze in N.Y.C., remembered enough about those heady times to earn associate producer credits on the upcoming "Factory Girl" movie about Edie Sedgwick. Now the Dupont brothers are writing their own screenplay about that fabled artist of the surreal, the late Salvador Dali. They hope to produce through their own Double-Take Productions, and want Johnny Depp as the painter of all things odd. If you've seen Johnny in his flamboyant "Pirates" outings, you know Dali would be a walk in the park . - Liz Smith of the NY Post

Funny Gay Black Joke

FROM PLANET GOSSIP

CLINTON/OBAMA 08!!!!!!!!!!!!

Senator Hillary Clinton is officially considering a run for the White House in 2008. One of Clinton's top advisors says she has personally asked some fellow Democrats for their support in the event that she does begin a presidential campaign.
