the next two weeks are probably the greatest two weeks of the year for sports fans. like college football? the wolverines open this saturday at the big house. like the NFL? it kicks off next thursday night. like tennis? the US open is in full force. hate baseball? those bastards are going to strike this week. life could not possibly be better!
speaking of sports, anna kournikova lost in the first round of the us open yesterday, marking yet another disappointing performance in a major. i was looking forward to some Kournie matches under the lights at Flushing Meadows on USA, but alas, i guess we'll have to wait another year for that one. but serena williams made a big splash with not only her victory last night, but with her leather one-piece outfit that is generating fashion buzz this morning on Reuters. personally, i don't dig on chicks who can curl more than i can bench, but hey, that's just me.
guns n' roses played a gig in london the other night, and of course NME was there to reveal it. the band's set was described as "stunning", and NME reports that Axl and the boys are heading back into the studio to finish up their long-awaited LP "Chinese Democracy."
and what would a morning be without a visit to the Los Angeles Times? this morning didn't disappoint (does it ever)? first of all, patrick goldstein has an interesting take on the dumping ground for shite films that is Labor Day Weekend. every know that this weekend is positively sids at the box office and it always has been, as studios have unleashed dreck such as "Excess Baggage", "Chill Factor", and Jean Claude Van Damme's epic "Knock Off" on Labor Days past. the lone exception to this rule (and I'm glad Goldstein noted this) is last year's exceedingly creepy masterpiece "Jeepers Creepers". yes, i just said "masterpiece" and "Jeepers Creepers" in the same sentence. if you haven't seen it, stop what you're doing and buy it from Amazon right now...i'm dead serious when i say that the first 30 minutes are some of the best in recent movie history, especially in this often-tired genre.
and while you're over at the LA Times site, check out this week's Ask Robert Hilburn, where he answers readers' questions on topics as diverse as "What ever happened to Bob Seger?", "Do you consider the turntable to be an instrument?", and "What would be your top 10 influencial LPs that have had the most impact on music?".posted by uncle grambo |

what a prolific day for whatevs.org. you certainly got your money's worth today! here are two final tidbits to make your evening even better...
--while this should go in the Obvs File, it's still worth noting. at the 5th Annual DVD Awards, Anchor Bay Entertainment received the award for Best Packaging for its "Evil Dead: Book of the Dead'' DVD. props out to a local company that stands head-to-head with Criterion in their appreciation for overlooked gems. --ESPN.com is reporting that the Detroit Lions have placed Germane Crowell on the physically unable to perform list, which means that he'll likely miss the first five or six weeks of the regular season. but leave it to the geniuses at Fanball.com toput it like this: "It's all about Az-zahir Hakim and Bill Schroeder for the first few weeks, not that it matters in Detroit's sorry offense. This passing game is going to suck." OBVS!posted by uncle grambo |
every now and then i get a particularily classic response to one of my postings and i feel the need to post it for the world to see (well, at least for the 12 or so loyal FOWs who check the site five times a day). below, please find such a response from Sabre Fanatic and Brother Rizz alum JJ Canfield on the violent break-up of an anti-G Dubz protest last week in Portland...
I am assuming that I am one of few (if any) FOWs who are also an unabashed FOG (friend of George W.) I feel compelled to respond to Sunday’s posting.
What you failed to include was that those demonstrators (more appropriately those granolas that asked Daddy to fly them to Portland so they could protest) were sprayed only after getting too close to the President. These people were free to demonstrate all they wanted to – within a specific area. As soon as they crossed the line, then they got a face full of pain.
More importantly, exactly what "civil liberties" were being infringed? The First Amendment right to speech you say? Not really. The First Amendment has never been interpreted to allow unfettered "protesting rights". Reasonable time, place, and manner restrictions on protests are allowed as long as there are compelling government interests at stake. There are few more compelling interests than the personal security of the President. This is well established. Please note that this scenario would have played out exactly the same if the President were Bill Clinton, Al Gore, or Ruterford B. Hayes. In short, George W, his policies, or party affiliation are not responsible for those hippies getting the spray.
A little heavy, I know. But I gotta look out for my boy. In closing, 2 things:
1. If given the chance, I’d LOVE to fill one of those Birkenstock wearing losers full of Habenero juice. Fun stuff.

it's not everyday that an email shows up in your inbox touting an up close and personal interview with Abel Ferrara. the director of cinematic masterpieces such as "King Of New York" and "Bad Lieutenant" has apparently finished a new movie called "R Xmas", which is the good news. the bad news is that like his previous two efforts, "The Blackout" and "New Rose Hotel", it is struggling to find domestic distribution. the grizz and i had the opportunity to catch the world premiere of "The Blackout" (starring Matt Modine and Dennis Hopper) back at the 1997 Toronto International Film Festival, so we can both attest to how best ever Abel Ferrara is. i'm keeping my fingers crossed that "R Xmas" will somehow slide into this year's Toronto Filmfest...
last but not least, Haypenny.com is quickly becoming one of my favorite websites. it's kind of like The Onion meets McSweeney's; adding to it's overall tigs quotient is the fact that it is produced here in Detroit (apparently). anyway, they have both daily and weekly updates, and today's daily update is worth the price of admission (editor's note - admission is free). it's titled The Start Of Your Rap Song, and here are a few of the examples... --Now just throw your hands all over the place. Party like William Hurt in Lost in Space. --Come on now, party people, jump up, jump up. Now, who wants to dare me to eat all of this ketchup? --Murder, murder, murder, murder, murder, murder, I get real scary like Peter Scolari, murder, murder, murder.posted by uncle grambo |
two of my fave internet columnists, Jeffrey Wells and David Poland, square off and talk about this weekend at the movies on the brand new website called Movie City News. among other things, they talk about seeing Clint Eastwood bare-chested at age 70-something, the lack of big breasts in Blue Crush, and whether or not Adam Sandler made a pact with the devil. very funny and very insightful stuff about movies. worth your time.posted by uncle grambo |

--the Los Angeles Times' own Robert Hilburn writes a review of saturday's Bruce Springsteen concert at the Los Angeles Forum. apparently springsteen played "dancing in the dark" in one of the encores, which is extremely rare. in the five times that i've seen him live or on the two live CDs that i own ("Live 1975-1985" and last year's HBO concert), he's never performed this song. does anyone know where you can score some live springsteen mp3s?
this may come as a shock to the loyal FOWs of the world, but i'm VERY excited about tomorrow...but not for the reasons that you might be thinking. you might think that it's because tomorrow is the the inaugural whatevs.org ff2k3 fantasy football draft, you might think it's because the local best buy will be teeming with copies of the "Jackie Brown" and "Reservoir Dogs" dvds, and you definitely think it's because the new Coldplay and QOTSA cds are released. well, i gotta admit that i will be one happy camper tomorrow for all of the above reasons, but the shocker reason is that August 27th marks the release of The Dixie Chicks' new cd, "Home". i've been a casual fan of The Chicks for a few years, mainly because i lived with a girl who played their last CD over and over again. and while the song "Goodbye Earl" makes me want to crawl up in the fetal position and tear my ears off, i'm very excited to hear the new album. i think that my interest was piqued by their dynamic performance on last year's "America's Tribute To Heroes" telethon, not to mention an episode of "Trading Spaces" i saw a few months back with Natalie Maines. for those who are non-believers, there was a great article about the group, their new album, and their knockdown drag-out fight with Sony Music in yesterday's Sunday edition of The New York Times (registration required). if you need additional back-up, entertainment weekly gave the album an "A" in last week's double issue. so if you happen to see me at Best Buy tomorrow, i'll have a copy of "Home" in my hands as i walk to the cashwrap. i'll keep you posted on the album's worthiness as the week progresses...maybe it's something that you'll consider adding to your collection.posted by uncle grambo |

color me impressed. i'm just sitting around my apartment on a sunday afternoon and i decided to check my email. there was your usual "laser ink jet refills" and PornoSpam, but there was also a tasty little morsel from Mike Kegler. not only is he an ace drummer for Immerse, he is the proprietor and genius behind the wildly informative Glamorama-Online.com. it's a prime site for everything from Sophie Ellis-Bextor worship to Paul Auster discussions, but mike has really struck gold with his recent reviews of the Benicassim Festival in Spain. his coverage of sets by bands such as Radiohead, BRMC, Primal Scream and Belle and Sebastian (and that's just the tip of the iceberg!) easily tops the great NME's write-up. mad props to one of whatevs.org's favorite websites and most stellar FOWs.posted by uncle grambo |
