Tuesday, Welded

Oy Voy
There’s a new computer virus, the Rbot-GR, that not only installs itself on your machine, but also takes over your webcam and microphone, should you have them. Who knows? Footage of you scratching yourself in the morning may show up in some newsgroup or other. Privacy is so over. Get used to it.

Al Dvorin Has, Oh, You Know…
The concert announcer who gave the world “Elvis has left the building” was 81.

So Is God A Funny Lesbian Or An Old Vaudevillian?
For some reason, Hollywood is re-making OH GOD, the dreadful movie from 1977, which starred John Denver (!), with George Burns as God. Some of you may have seen it, and erased the experience from your mind.
This time around, Ellen DeGeneres will be God. Neither Mr. Burns nor Ms. DeGeneres seem capable of smiting, in my opinion.

So Why Don’t You Marry Halliburton If You Love It So Much?
Dick Cheney, speaking at a campaign rally in Davenport, Iowa, when asked about gay marriage, said, ``Lynne and I have a gay daughter, so it's an issue our family is very familiar with…. With respect to the question of relationships, my general view is freedom means freedom for everyone ... People ought to be free to enter into any kind of relationship they want to.”

That’s So Gay
Russell Crowe, at a post-wrap of THE CINDERELLA STORY round of drinking in Toronto, bit his bodyguard in the ear when he (Mark “Spud” Carroll) suggested it might be time to call it a night.

Duck News
Jim Turner has his first read through this week for BEWITCHED, the major motion picture starring Nicole Kidman and Will Ferrell. Turner will be playing someone in the movie, someone really important. Not as important as Will Ferrell's and Nicole Kidman's characters, but still-- who are YOU playing? Nobody, that's who. So shut up. Just shut up. I am SO tired of your attitude.
