lol People have such vivid imaginations.

Hmm, the website is down. No way it could be a problem on my end, or their end. CLEARLY, they've been shut down by the man...

Well now, when dealing with George Lucas, that isn't really all that far-fetched.

Looks like they've run a correction:

Earlier today I reported that fan site had been suspended after posting unauthorized images of packaging mock-ups from Hasbro's Star Wars: Episode III toys. Fortunately, I was wrong! Their server was down due to increased traffic!

The movie will come even closer Aug. 14, when peace activists plan to show it on a bedsheet in the front yard of a house in Crawford.

That's at the Crawford Peace House purchased by North Texans for Peace, several friends of mine are actively involved with it including my next door neighbor. The house is on the only road you can take to Bush's ranch. The problem is, he always arrives by helicopter and never sees the protests and displays at the Crawford House. I've actually been to it. My neighbor and I went down there right after it was purchased. I will admit, I was a little uneasy with all the secret service agents driving slowly by. Of course, it was new then. Now, the secret service barely pays attention to them. Obviously, this is merely a symbolic gesture. I doubt it will accomplish anything other than "neener neener neener!" (or is it "nanny nanny boo boo"?)

In that case Spiderlegs, do you know any of the email addresses of those guys or if they have a website?  The article doesn't seem to mention if this is official or not and if so when it would happen.  My buddy and I are interested in possibly driving down if it's really happening.

(Oh, and everyone please feel free to call me Rob)

How about a little love for my main man Rene Magritte:

I love lots of stuff from the Renaissance to Constructivism to Surrealism to Dada to Modernism to Post Modernism...etc...

Off the top of my mind I enjoy Rodchenko, Dali, Bosch, Duchamp, Bill Viola, Berninni, and about a thousand other painters, sculpters, photographers, filmmakers, etc...

I remember studying the Pieta for a week in High School, it truly is one of the greatest works of all time

I loved my Humanities Class in 11th Grade.  One of my all time greatest learning experiences...the Greek and Roman Classics, The Renaissance, Architecture, Opera, Classical Music...I wanted to take another class in college but could never fit it in between the Organic Chemistry and Physics and Linear Algebra. >:(

I was hoping someone would mention Hodges...he's doing an Ice Cream Maker Guy Card!!!

I stood infront of that piece for about an hour one time when I was living in Rome.


But I think Moses (also in Rome) is even more stunning.

Fahrenheit 9/11 took in another $7.2 million this past weekend, bringing its total gross to about $94 million.  Not bad.  

Considering it's almost FIVE times the previous record gross for a documentary, I'd say so.

Yeah, this year the games in Gainsville. Actually, come to think of it, I usualy go to the Florida games, but for the life of me I can't recall last time we beat ya'll.

It dosen't matter anyway, Lou'll whip you guys in a big way come November!

If that happens, Zook will be on his way out.  Like I mentioned earlier, this is tupposed to be the year that his recruiting classes have matured enough to become a solid team and get back into the national title hunt.  If they fall flat again - look for Return of Spurrier rumors to heat up...

Hey Zod, I was at the Carolina-Florida game last year, pretty good game eh? Ya'll are going down this year!

Very good game.  

I wish I could go this year but I moved to Dallas after graduating last year.  Odds of me getting to a Gators game (let alone that one) are slim to none.  I haven't seen their schedule yet but if they come near here I might try to make it.

It's make or break time for Zook.  He's done a great job recruiting and if he can't get the Gators back into the hunt this year - he's got no more excuses as to why.

It's also time to see what Chris Leak is made of.

Rather, it pegged one person as responsible for the break-up of one of the greatest hard rock bands of all time.

Guess who?

Say it ain't so?!

I got that same feeling watching the Poison and Motley Crue behind the music episodes, but denial kept me from accepting the truth.

Ridiculous is good.

Ridiculous is good.

But moderately large and matching reality is good too.
