Entertaining least 97% of it

Since reading "The Omega Man" in 7th grade, I have had a thing for "last man alive" fantasy's. Maybe because of that long infatuation all films fall short?... Many parts of this film completely satisfy. I did find myself re-writing while watching... I guess I will continue to pursue the ultimate book or film.... however this film keeps your heart rate up and your muscles tense for most of it.

Nicely done!

Without a doubt the best of all Sondheim scores. The recent NY revival was one of the finest things I have seen on the stage. The Tim Burton film was a delight from start to finish. Sondheim himself assisted on the project. I believe that to be a factor in how well the score was "cut" to fit into the restrictions of film. It is a cold, dark, bloody film that is stylized wonderfully. The cinematography is eye candy. All actors, while not "singers", bring a new quality. Thank you Tim Burton! Hats off to Stephen Sondheim, a living 'Mozart' of our time.

Tis the Season to love your fellow man.

I was depressed last night so I rang Lifeline.
I was transferred to a call center in Pakistan.
I told them I was suicidal.
They got all excited and asked if I could drive a truck.

Baseball and steriods

What kind of a media/owner/player pile of crap are we enduring now?
The fact that one owner or player 'feigns' shock over this "new steriod news" is amazing.

I don't think there is a single american citizen that hasn't known steriods are a major part of sports for at least ten years.... SNL was doing sketches on it back in the early 80's....

Putting things in perspective.

We would rather be doing what we are doing than:

Iraq is more important to us than......

Not bad for a "Web forward"

The Demographics of American Newspapers:

1. The Wall Street Journal is read by the people who run the country.

2. The Washington Post is read by people who think they run the country.

3. The New York Times is read by people who think they should run the country and who are very good at crossword puzzles.

4. USA Today is read by people who think they ought to run the country but don't really understand The New York Times. They do, however, like their statistics shown in pie charts.

5. The Los Angeles Times is read by people who wouldn't mind running the country -- if they could find the time -- and if they didn't have to leave Southern California to do it.

6. The Boston Globe is read by people whose parents used to run the country and did a far superior job of it, thank you very much.

7. The New York Daily News is read by people who aren't too sure who's running the country and don't really care as long as they can get a seat on the train.

8. The New York Post is read by people who don't care who's running the country as long as they do something really scandalous, preferably while intoxicated.

9. The Miami Herald is read by people who are running another country but need the baseball scores.

10. The San Francisco Chronicle is read by people who aren't sure there is a country. Or that anyone is running it; but if so, they oppose all that they stand for. There are occasional exceptions if the leaders are handicapped minority feminist atheist height challenged who also happen to be illegal aliens from any other country or galaxy, provided of course, that they are not Republicans.

11. The National Enquirer is read by people trapped in line at the grocery store.

12. The Honolulu Advertiser is bought by people who have recently caught a fish and need something in which to wrap fish guts in.
