Outrage

I went to bed earlier than planned last night - and didn't catch the end of the election results. I had a sneaking suspicion though that after Ohio went to Obama, that he had managed to win the election. Imagine my outrage this morning, when I woke up and turned on the news to find out that there is going to be a new movie of the Three Stooges. It's not going to be like Walk the Line, the story of Johnny Cash; Ray, the story of Ray Charles; This is Spinal Tap, the story of Spinal Tap.

This is going to be a movie like Dumb and Dumber. Which is a fine movie in it's own right. But to place the Stooges, and try to have someone fill their shoes as just another episode in their serials & movies, not gonna be good.

Even though it is in the capable hands of the Farrelly Brothers, I don't believe that this is a movie that needs to be made. True - most of today's audience, of the folks who will go see this film probably have never seen The Three Stooges, but only know them from posters, mugs, or maybe even neckties.

In other entertainment news, Michael Critchon died yesterday. I guess he wanted to be an extra on E.R. in it's last season and things didn't turn out very well. So much for those interns. Where's Dr. Green when you need him?


Long live the original Larry, Curly, and Moe. Nyuk. Nyuk.

I guess Critchon caught some of that Andromeda Strain that's been going around.
