Hello! Hope everyone had a good weekend. Peggy and I went to a country auction up in Oxford, Georgia Saturday night and did Mother's Day stuff on Sunday. Good times.
Also over the weekend, Al Gore made an appearance on Saturday Night Live. He addressed the nation from an alternate reality where the Supreme Court had allowed the votes to be counted and Gore had won the 2000 election. Funny, yes, but kinda sad, too. What a time it could have been. There are a lot of good lines in this sketch, but probably my favorite is the one about Bush's job in this alternate reality. You can view the clip here. Thanks to Shawn for the link.
Also, go here to see a full-size version of the new poster for Shammy's Lady in the Water. Kind of an interesting image. Bryce Dallas Howard is really staying away from the ingenue look for this one. More of a dark elf look, like Galadriel's creepier younger sister, Givesmenightmaresiel. Also, if you follow the link to Ainititcool, Harry Knowles writes this: "I did a two hour interview with Paul Giamatti for PENTHOUSE - where he hinted at a very OZ-ian base for the film. Including the possibility of flying monkeys!!!" Which is interesting to me. The idea of creating a new fantasy world in the vein of Oz sounds like a good idea, but because Shammy's kind of uneven as a screenwriter, I'm hesitant to get excited about this one; especially after Village turned out to be such a letdown. Anyway. More tomorrow.
