T-1000 to replace Mulder. Robert Patrick can only play the role of a suit. The character of Scully was set to contrast the conspiracy-loving Mulder, and now she is cast beside a suit. Where is the contrast?

I am quite amazed when people have not heard of my old high school, Churchill in Livonia, Michigan. Just for this year, we had 2 of the top 20 students in all of Michigan.

Free anime. The Wings of Honneamise is available for viewing, a movie I have longed to see.

On this date: 1973: Bruce Lee Died Bruce Lee, arguably the greatest martial artist of modern times, died of a brain edema in Hong Kong at the age of 32. While the cause of the edema was never determined, doctors believed it was due to hypersensitivity to a medication. He died prior to the release of his last film "Enter the Dragon."

So far, the new Power Mac G4 Cube has been called the iAirPurifier and the iBreadMaker here at work. I think it is a great design, except for the fact that there are NO slots for expansion.

Crap. The trailer to Spriggan is already available, and it is amazing.

Spriggan will be released in the US. My friend and ex-roommate Mondo, along with the kids of Animania, subtitled this excellent film. Otomo Katsuhiro, the brains behind Akira, was the main man behind Spriggan. Speaking of Akira, it will be released to DVD next year.

Finally, people are starting to understand what I have been saying all along: Americans are too clean! Even though current research has not come up with hard proof, all of these anti-bacterial soaps/cleansers/sheets/door knobs are going to eventually create resistant bacteria. It is a proven fact that all of the genetic testing on bacteria has created a few monsters, but they were controlled. Having triclosan and the other antibacteria products being used by the ton each day everywhere is not a closed environment.

The Honda Insight is a gorgeous vehicle. While the looks are very futuristic, the hybrid engine is utterly amazing. 70 mpg, 720 miles to a gas tank. and Car and Driver have reviews, and everyone is in love. At only $20,000, Honda is definitely selling this car at a loss.

Pulling up the film credits for Ron Jeremy at the IMDB almost crashed my computer. 581 movies, good god.

Tower Records has closed their campus location in Ann Arbor. Located in the heart of the Student Ghetto, Tower was a great place to hang out later at night. Instead, the U is going to put the School of Public Health offices there. There are plans to open up another Tower location, but closer to downtown.
