I saw posters today for a new Where's Waldo? book, the first since 1997.

I'm not a soccer fan by any means, but a few first round World Cup match-ups intrigue me.

Mexico vs. Iran (Jun 11)
A bizarro battle — in Nuremberg, of all places. Franken-Stadion was a marching area for the Hitler Youth.

France vs. Switzerland (Jun 13)
Good to see the two countries finally invading Deutschland to fight.

Germany vs. Poland (Jun 14)
Like Yanks vs. Sox with a higher body count.

Australia vs. Japan (Jun 12)
Brazil vs. Australia (Jun 18)
Japan vs. Brazil (Jun 22)
Never mind that I adore all three countries…

Japan hired a Brazilian soccer legend to coach.

Australia has never scored a World Cup goal, and has played in just one previous Cup, 32 years ago in Germany.

Brazil. is. soccer.

I can't complain too much about Ratner's interpretation of Juggernaut though, especially after Schumacher's Bane:

Speaking of which, we have a release date!

Trailer Park Boys: The Movie, a prequel to the series, opens in Canada on October 6, which happens to be my birthday. :D

The movie, shot last summer, will feature the final appearance of beloved duo Cory and Trevor. Actors Cory Bowles and Michael Jackson left the cast after this past season to pursue other interests.

Despite being produced by Ivan Reitman (Ghostbusters), I doubt Trailer Park Boys: The Movie will receive a U.S. release, so now the question is: Vancouver or Windsor?

Edmonton hockey fans create beer emergency

Oilers fans had previously made headlines for disturbances on Whyte Avenue. People have been stabbed, assaulted, and stores have been vandalized.

Stabbed? With what? Stabbings are usually methodical. Fans just had knives on hand? Unless… Snikt!1

Thoughts on X-Men: The Last Stand not involving Juggernaut:

Cyclops is the Meg Griffin of Fox's X-Men. What a waste of a good character. Isn't he the leader of the X-Men in the comics? I hope James Marsden's role in Superman Returns justifies his pathetic Last Stand cameo.

James Marsden — say that ten times fast.

Arclight's gender bothered me the whole time. Its mannish features clashed with its sports bra and "she" designation. "Are there transsexual mutants?" I wondered.

Tell me this doesn't look like a tranny.

For the record, Arclight is a woman.

Mystique would never use a lame insult like "meathead." She kills in cold blood, for fuck's sake! Rebecca Romijn's flat delivery didn't help matters. Kitty Pryde's use of "dickhead" came off awkward too. Surely a PG-13 rating allows for more zing than grade school name-calling.

Is "meathead" still part of anyone's vocabulary?

Brief addendum to my previous post:

Anyone else think eating popcorn while exploring an aquarium is tacky?

Flipping past the History Channel's history of cocaine, I stumbled upon Sand Blasters: The Extreme Sand Sculpting Championship.

Comcast's description:

Eight two-person teams of sand sculptors try to build a sand masterpiece in 11 hours for a $15,000 prize. Their work-in-progress could be randomly selected to be blown up, and they'd have to start over.

As someone who's lost hard-wrought work to crashes and power outages, I fail to see the fun of such a competition. The fifth and final team to fall victim to detonation only had two hours to rebuild from scratch.

At least typical reality "race against the clock" twists don't annihilate all existing progress.

I wish I could remember what I'm trying to forget

I pity whoever's job it is to update Oprah's billboards (plural) daily. Does she really need to advertise her show?

I've been playing tourist this week.

On Tuesday, I visited a Chris Ware exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Art. The geometric intricacy of his work never ceases to inspire awe. If John Severin didn't exist, Chris Ware would be my favorite illustrator.

Yesterday, I visited the Shedd Aquarium. While I understand the need for displays to simulate natural environments, reptiles and amphibians in their "natural" environments can be impossibly frustrating to see. One frog I spent three minutes locating turned out to be a cockroach.

I also mistook beluga whales for dolphins. "How did I miss the fuckin' whales?" I thought, checking and re-checking my map, later realizing that the dolphins in the whale habitat were, in fact, whales. I assumed the whales would be larger. I expected Moby Dick or Shamu.

The "natural" environment for fish of the Great Lakes was concrete and some rusted metal.

On the train ride home, I perused the back page of the Chicago Reader's classified section.

Actual back page classified ads (I'd scan if I could):

The charisma of foreskin

Last summer was deemed the "summer of penguins." This summer looks to be (to my dismay) the summer of cars.

On June 5, Fast Inc. premieres on MTV. The series "revolves around a team of 'car hunters' who field celebrity requests for vintage and muscle cars."

On June 9, Disney and Pixar's computer-animated Cars opens in theatres.

On June 16, The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift opens in theatres.

On August 4, NASCAR comedy Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby opens in theatres.

I'll see Talledega Nights because it's from the people behind Anchorman, but the appeal of cars and auto racing is completely lost on me.

The Movie Binge:

Starting this Friday and ending in September, we plan to watch all 85 commercially released films.

Before our middle school graduation, I bet Brad Czajkowski that I could watch every major movie released in the summer of 1996.

I wish I could reclaim all the time I wasted that summer sitting through stinkers for the sake of sitting through them.

Taking random pictures of the sky

I recently finished reading Cryptonomicon by Neal Stephenson and, reluctant to start another book until after my move back to California, I've been passing time with my flatmates' back issues of Blender.

I know, I know… But Parade costs money!

Nowhere is Blender's shoddy journalism more evident than in the blurbs for its "20 Songs You Should Download This Month" feature.

I culled the following from the magazine's online "20 Songs" archive, which spans three years.

Exhibit A: jeopardy! mad libs
"this Canadian quintet" (The Arcade Fire)
"this Harlem meanie" (Cam'ron)
"this Harlem oddball" (Juelz Santana)
"this London phenom" (M.I.A.)
"these California newbies" (We Are Scientists)
"these Dirty South newbies" (Dem Franchize Boys)
"these San Fernando Valley metallers" (Incubus)
"these New Jersey punk-metal rookies" (My Chemical Romance)
"this Sri Lankan-born beauty" (M.I.A.)
"these Austin art-popsters" (Spoon)
"this former British teen-popstress" (Rachel Stevens)
"these lo-fi Minnesotans" (Tapes 'n Tapes)
"these White Stripes-endorsed Cincinnatians" (The Greenhornes)
"this Neil Young-obsessed Idaho foursome" (Built to Spill)
"this New York State punk foursome" (Matchbook Romance)
"this Brit foursome" (Kasabian)
"these Athens, Georgia, indie-rockers" (Elf Power)
"this Buffalo, N.Y., indie troupe" (Mercury Rev)
"these Brooklyn indie faves" (Clap Your Hands Say Yeah)

The blurbs frequently incorporate a location, seemingly just to fill space. I mean, who cares that Incubus is from the Valley?

Exhibit B: "bellingham, washington" is 21 characters long
Sep 05
"these Bellingham, Washington, sensitoids" (Death Cab for Cutie)
Oct 05
"these Bellingham, Washington, indie-rock swooners" (Death Cab for Cutie)

Likewise, who cares that Death Cab is from Bellingham, Washington? I don't even know where that is, yet Blender feels the need to mention it in consecutive issues.

Exhibit C: don't play that
"Jay-Z's chubby homey" (Beanie Sigel)
"two Georgia homeys" (Da BackWudz)
"50 Cent's gruff homie" (Lloyd Banks)
"Kanye West's Chi-town homey" (Rhymefest)
"Ludacris's tough homiette" (Shawnna)
"Curtis Jackson's high-voiced, oft-jailed Queens homey" (Tony Yayo)

Apparently, black people can't be "friend"s. Of all the synonyms though, the writers exploit "homey"?

Exhibit D: u-turn
Apr 05
"an R&B understudy sets her sights on Beyoncé's Manolos" (Amerie)
Jun 05
"[she] gets her Mary J. on" (Amerie)

Well, which one is it?

Exhibit E: what is "punk"?
"agit-punks" (The [International] Noise Conspiracy)
"art-punks" (Art Brut)
"dance-punk" (Franz Ferdinand)
"emo-punk" (Fall Out Boy)
"freewheeling punk" (The Libertines)
"garage-punk" (PJ Harvey)
"New York State punk" (Matchbook Romance)
"post-punk" (Kaiser Chiefs)
"pop-punks" (Motion City Soundtrack)
"power punk" (Be Your Own Pet)
"prog-punk" (The Mars Volta)
"punk-metal" (My Chemical Romance)
"punkish New Wave" (We Are Scientists)
"rockabilly-tinged, saxophone-laced punk" (The Zutons)
"screaming punk" (Blood on the Wall)
"ska-punk" (Dogs Die in Hot Cars)
"smartypants London punk" (The Rakes)
"synth-punk" (LCD Soundsystem)

A: a suffix, more or less

Exhibit F: 40 acres and a mule
"Ludacris's smoove protégé" (Bobby Valentino)
"Usher's rapping protégé" (Rico Love)
"Jay-Z's new R&B protégé" (Teairra Marí)
"Dr. Dre's new bullet-scarred protégé" (The Game)
"Lil Jon's rowdy crunk protégés" (Trillville)
"from the producer of the 'The Whisper Song' comes a new Georgia protégé" (Homebwoi)
"with his new protégé in tow, Wu-Tang's finest MC…" (Theodore Unit)

Off-topic curiosity. Errrbody got their someone.

I also question Blender's "20 Songs" selection methodology.

Exhibit G: repeat offenders
19. Cam'ron – "Get Em Daddy Remix" (Mar 06)
14. Cam'ron feat. Jaheim – "Something New" (Sep 05)
10. Cam'ron feat. Kanye West and Syleena Johnson – "Down and Out" (Mar 05)
2. Cam'ron – "Girls" (Jan/Feb 05)
6. Beanie Sigel feat. Cam'ron – "Wanted" (Nov 04)
12. Jim Jones feat. Cam'ron and Bezel – "Certified Gangstas" (Oct 04)
13. Cam'ron – "Lord You Know" (Aug 04)

9. Tony Yayo feat. 50 Cent – "So Seductive" (Oct 05)
4. 50 Cent feat. Mobb Deep – "Out of Control" (Sep 05)
1. 50 Cent – "Ski Mask Way" (May 05)
5. 50 Cent – "Candy Shop" (Apr 05)
13. The Game feat. 50 Cent – "Hate It or Love It" (Apr 05)
17. 50 Cent – "Disco Inferno" (Mar 05)
4. The Game feat. 50 Cent – "Westside Story" (Jan/Fed 05)

The online archive is incomplete, so God knows exactly how many Cam'ron and 50 Cent songs charted. My guess is ALL OF THEM.

Collecting Our Remains

Rush Hour and X3 director Brett Ratner on Rush Hour 3:

I want Yao Ming, the basketball player, to be in it. I want to recreate the fight sequence from the Bruce Lee movie where he fights Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, but I want to do the reverse; I want Chris Tucker to fight Yao Ming. [source]

He just assumes the Chinese guy can fight.

At least Lee-Alcindor (eh?) involved an actual martial artist. Tucker-Ming sounds like a bad wrestling publicity stunt.

I just learned about the "hamdog" today.

Smoke and Mirrors

"Your momma's so lazy, the last time she had a job, the minimum wage was slavery." — White winner insulting black loser on MTV

Forget Bill Gates. I want to trade lives with Chris Tucker.

New Line Cinema has agreed to pay Chris Tucker $25 million to appear in Rush Hour 3, making him the highest-paid actor in Hollywood. [source]

A remarkable feat for a rather unremarkable entertainer. Any ComicView loudmouth could play his roles. Meanwhile, Jackie Chan will continue to earn less than his co-star for a far more demanding role.

Tucker has only appeared in two films since 1998 — Rush Hour and Rush Hour 2. He earned $3 million for the original and $20 million for the sequel.

$48 million for roughly one year of "work" over the span of a decade ain't too shabby.

sidenote: Rush Hour 2 is the highest-grossing comedy of all time. You'd think that honor would belong to, you know, a memorable film.

Color me surprised to see not one, but two black professional hockey players on Yahoo! Sports' NHL page Sunday morning. So they do exist…
