Yet Another Star Wars Link
Pretty cool, the NY Times has all its old Star Wars film reviews online...it's interesting seeing a view of the movies before they were such a cult phenomenon, especially a kind of cinema snob one.

News of a Week Ago
Heh, the wrestling giant "WWF" lost their fight against "World Wildlife Fund" for ultimate use of the wwf.com domain. So the Wrestlers are changing their name to "WWE", World Wrestling Entertainment, though they're just dropping the final letter from their W-in-W logo, which I've always kind of admired, rather then adding on an extra bar for the "E". To remind folks of the change, they've adopted the slogan "Get the 'F' out", which is funny in a wrestler sort of way.

If only the fight had been a no-holds-barred steel cage grudge match! Them wrasslers woulda shown them pansy animal huggers what's what then!

Quote of the Moment
Television is the golden goose that lays scrambled eggs; and it is futile and probably fatal to beat it for not laying caviar. Anyway, more people like scrambled eggs than caviar.
--Lee Loevinger. I just like that line "the golden goose that lays scrambled eggs", I may have to co-opt it for my own purposes.
