Is It Time To Reach Around The Aisle?

Can a Democrat date a Republican?

There are plenty of articles out there regarding this topic; I researched through a lot of them and pulled a few of the more colorful points, quotes, and comments:

“Opposites may attract, but similarities endure”

“Would a Dem and a Rep Make It Work, not this one!”

“Republicans Are People, Too.”

“Look at Arnold Schwarzenegger and his wife Maria. It works for them.”

“Things are going wonderfully, until your date mentions the unthinkable. No, he’s not straight; he’s a… Republican.”

 “Respect your date (even if he/she is wrong!)”

Madonna Sing-Along In Chicago

Madonna’s Sticky and Sweet Tour hit Chicago for it’s second night last night and it moves on to Vancouver, BC. The video below is from her sing-along section where she takes requests of oldies but goodies. This time, it was “Dress You Up”. I’ll be seeing this show in Vegas in a week and a half, so I’m gettin’ excited.

Lady Gaga Has A ‘Poker Face’

Hot-assed vid, solid beats – the chorus is little La Bouche from the 90’s but that’s OK, I still love it. The Fame was released today and I have to say, it’s solid.

Watch the vid here.

Movie Magic Ignores The History Books

We go to the movies for entertainment, not a history lesson; we all accept that movies stretch the truth in the interest of building drama. The following ten flicks, however, treat the truth like it was Silly Putty — pulling and twisting it until it’s unrecognizable.

  1. 10,000 B.C.
    Director Roland Emmerich is usually a stickler for realism (see: sending a computer virus via Macintosh to aliens in Independence Day). So we hate to inform him that woolly mammoths were not, in fact, used to build pyramids. Heck, woolly mammoths weren’t even found in the desert. They wouldn’t need to be woolly if that were the case. And there weren’t any pyramids in Egypt until 2,500 B.C or so.
  2. Gladiator
    Emperor Commodus was not the sniveling sister-obsessed creep portrayed in the movie. A violent alcoholic, sure, but not so whiny. He ruled ably for over a decade rather than ineptly for a couple months. He also didn’t kill his father, Marcus Aurelius, who actually died of chickenpox. And instead of being killed in the gladatorial arena, he was murdered in his bathtub.
  3. 300
    Though this paean to ancient moral codes and modern physical training is based on the real Battle of Thermopylae, the film takes many stylistic liberties. The most obvious one being Persian king Xerxes was not an 8-foot-tall Cirque du Soleil reject. The Spartan council was made up of men over the age of 60, with no one as young as Theron (played by 37-year-old Dominic West). And the warriors of Sparta went into battle wearing bronze armor, not just leather Speedos.
  4. The Last Samurai
    The Japanese in the late 19th century did hire foreign advisers to modernize their army, but they were mostly French, not American. Ken Watanabe’s character was based on the real Saigo Takamori who committed ritual suicide, or “seppuku,” in defeat rather than in a volley of Gatling gun fire. Also, it’s doubtful that a 40-something alcoholic Civil War vet, even one with great hair, would master the chopsticks much less the samurai sword.
  5. Apocalypto
    This one movie has given entire Anthropology departments migranes. Sure the Maya did have the odd human sacrifice but not to Kulkulkan, the Sun God, and only high-ranking captives taken in battle were killed. The conquistadors arriving at the end of the film made for unlikely saviors: an estimated 90% of indigenous American population was killed by smallpox from the infected Spanish pigs.
