Pop star-turned director Jay Chou held a press conference in Beijing to introduce the concept for his small-screen directorial debut, "Pandamen."
"We have seen such Western superheroes as Spiderman and Batman, but Chinese people need their own heroes, and that will be the pandamen." [source]
He declined Wong Kar-Wai's offer to play Bruce Lee for this?
I received an e-mail notifying me of the San Francisco Irish Film Festival, which is two films and some shorts. If that constitutes a film festival, I should stage my own.
The Adam Riff Film Festival.
brainstorm: opening night film: if looks could kill blank check with brian bonsall and karen duffy in attendance a day-long tremors retrospective my father the hero

Metallic Attraction: Kung Fu Cyborg takes place in a future world where robots are at war with each other.
Wu Jing plays a robot who has become evil but eventually turns over a new leaf. [source]
Kung fu, like zombies, is a niche that filmmakers seem intent on fusing with every other niche imaginable, the culmination of which is Kung Fu Zombie.
The tagline should be: "Our food tastes about as good as our logos look."
It may be a sterile mess, but Kraft's new logo is still a welcome improvement over its old logo. Kraft's old logo is probably my least favourite logo ever. I hate it with the passion of a thousand Sulemans. It is an aesthetic abomination ugly, tacky… Good riddance.
I received a cookbook "designed to showcase the exciting array of foods sold at Costco."
One of the recipes is Chocolate Cake with Berries.
Drizzle chocolate syrup onto a plate.
Place cake slice on the plate. Arrange berries next to the cake.
I'm not sure "buy a chocolate cake at Costco and put berries next to it" constitutes a recipe.
I was upset that you showed pictures of Sports Illustrated swimsuit models and no warning was given. I was watching with my family.[source]
The writer was watching The O'Reilly Factor with his or her family? Seriously?
Tech N9ne on Watchmen:
Oh my God, Watchmen looks fucking dope! It looks like some comic book shit. […] That big blue guy sticks out. He looks like something godly. I was like, "What the Hell is that?" It looks like some Marvel Comics shit. [source]
CBS doesn't show CTV's watermark during Flashpoint…
Idea: The Human Alien Project.
I haven't worked out the logistics, but sequester a newborn baby boy so that he grows up without any human interaction. He can only observe human behavior in films and books and on television and a restricted Internet.
Then, on his 18th birthday, release him into the world and document what happens.
Fox is releasing both Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li and Dragonball Evolution.
» What if Daredevil had lived in Feudal Japan?
» What if Iron Man sold out?
» What If Peter Parker was bitten by a radioactive sheep?
» What if Spider-Man was a murderer?
» What If Spider-Man had remained in 1980s Russia after an accidental death?
» What if Wolverine was lord of the vampires?
» What if Wolverine became The Punisher in the 1920s?
WHAT IF WOLVERINE BECAME A CRAZED VIGILANTE DURING PROHIBITION! Who wouldn't want to see that?
And this is merely what Marvel has published. Imagine the scenarios the writers of, say, Nip/Tuck could dream up.
» What if Captain America had lived in the American Civil War?
Idea: A dramatization of a contemporary American Civil War.
I secretly hope that America descends into civil war again. I think it'd be fun to align with a side and participate in combat in America as we know it.
Why is this not a video game? Call of Duty 5: Modern Civil Warfare.
I don't know what the fuck you're talking about half the time
i'm either super out of the loop on shit – or i'm missing a lot of stuff lately
Alright. Today, I'm-a test out footnotes in the comments.
I miss rebuses and Classic Concentration.
Game show idea: Blind Spots. Two contestants with disparate areas of expertise answer questions on their opponent's areas of expertise.
Black and silver are not discordant colours, but the MacBook's black keyboard and the silver iPod nano's black wheel offend my eyes.
24 won't put a character in a wheelchair unless they want her knocked out of it, crawling desperately for a phone or a knife or any sort of useful implement that a fully mobile person could reach without a problem. Either that, or Dubaku will just roll her down a staircase, which might be funny in a macabre way. [source]
Might be funny?
"I've been vaiting for you…" Thwack!
This most recent episode [of 24] had one of my favorite Jack lines of all time. After Renee has been kidnapped, shot, then buried alive, survived, and then forced by Jack to fake-torture a baby:
Jack: Are you okay?
Renee: Umm… I'm not sure
Jack: What do you mean, what's wrong? [source]
I want to see Glenn Beck interview Tatiana Del Toro.4
I want to craft a documentary on Asian NASCAR fans.
I want to record an a capella cover of Radiohead's "Idiotheque" with beatboxers.
Green Day's 21st Century Breakdown is broken into three acts.
"I don’t know if you'd call it a 'concept album,' but there's a thread that connects everything."
The title track morphs into multiple movements. [source]
