love them trades!
You may all feel sorry for me as I have to soon go to dental crown
appointment #3. So with my short day, and with the strange lack of attention Ive
been paying to the goings on in the Industry lately, lets take a look at the trades!
Zoinks! Ever-Popular Scooby-Doo Celebrates 30 Years. The piece goes on to talk about an upcoming Scooby movie in which "leader Fred has hung up his dated scarlet neck scarf in favor of a hipper denim jacket and the boxy old ``Mystery Machine'' has been traded in for a sleeker minivan." I think its rather mean to throw Fred even further into the closet. I mean, after all these years youd think Fred would be wearing platforms and declaring Daphnes skirt to be "fabulous!" At least Velmas still a lesbian. And isnt the term "sleeker minivan" an oxymoron? Regardless, Im still mourning the day when I found out that Casey Kasem was the voice of Shaggy. I mark that as the end of my childhood.
William Shatner's Wife Drunk When Drowned. I feel bad for the guy, but then when I see Shatner with his Worst Male Facelift Ever, I just think: ew.
Unabomber's Brother In Movie Pact With Disney. David Kaczynski will help make a movie about what its like to be a sibling of one of Americas most dangerous criminals. Poor Walt must be rolling over in his subzero cryogenic wacko-capsule.
Michael Douglas Urges Albanians To Hand In Guns. And in a related story, Albania urges Michael Douglas to hand in Catherine Zeta-Jones.
''Rage'' misfires. In a review of a new indie film, the Variety reviewer says of the writer, " and some of his dialogue is clever (Warren snaps, A cheap whore may get you off, but never a cheap attorney)." This is clever dialogue? Ive seen better lines on Gary Buseys glass coffee table.
Angus MacFadyen (``Braveheart'') and Penelope Ann Miller have landed the starring roles in the romantic comedy ``A Woman's a Helluva Thing.'' The very mention of Penelope Ann Miller makes me laugh, and yet feel strangely melancholy at the same time.
Dale Evans In Good Spirits After Heart Attack. Yee-haw!!! Now if I could just have me one of them strokes!
Columbia Pictures has decided to move the release date of its family drama
"Hanging Up"--starring Meg Ryan, Diane Keaton and Lisa Kudrow--from Christmas
Day to Feb. 11, citing the crush of competition. OK folks, quick Hollywood PR
The Larry King Happy
