    This came out last year, but we just had to tell you how excited we are about War on Terror: The BoardGame. According to the game's website, for 47 bucks, you get to:

    "Send secret messages; fund terrorism; make deals; renege on deals; wage war; expand your empire; forge secret alliances; fund regime changes; kidnap politicians; be the terrorists."

    Did he make it or not? We don't think so, but we'd rather hear from you. Leave your thoughts in the comments thread.

    In 8: A Memoir, Amy Fusselman’s followup to her excellent first memoir The Pharmacist’s Mate, time, rather than moving in a linear fashion, takes the form of the figure eights the author used to skate when she was a kid. Events, for her, don’t just come and go. Instead, everything from Fusselman's experience in the backseat of a cab to the sexual abuse she suffered in her youth at the hands of her babysitter’s husband stays around, affects her in the present.

    In spite of what our film critic may say, some of us are honestly pretty excited about Knocked Up. And we're probably even more excited for Superbad, also from the mind of Judd Apatow, starring the brilliant Michael Cera (you may know him as George Michael from Arrested Development.)

    Cera and Apatow filmed this clip from the set of Knocked Up, an apparent parody of the video footage of the blow-up between David O.

    Variety reports that Fox has optioned the rights to a movie based on...

    (wait for it...)

    THE SIMS

    No, really. Someone thinks that this will make a good movie.



    To top things off, the project's producer's previous projects include Garfield 2, Norbit, and Fat Albert, and the writer was one of the roughly 58 people who worked on the Scary Movie 3 script.

    I’m a huge fan of food and nutrition studies. Not so much the ones that tell me I should be adding or getting rid of something in my diet so that I might lead a healthier life. I ignore those entirely. But rather those that make me feel better about doing things I already do. Like when they said that tomatoes combat prostate cancer, I was ecstatic because I just love the little guys (especially the way they fit so nicely between a burger and a bun).

    Providence photographer (and Phoenix contributor) John E. Coli Nikolai’s Siberian cat, Bela, doesn’t always look so scary. The fearsome screaming creature you see above is just a trick of the lens.

    In fact, John reports, Bela is “the most affectionate and loving creature I have ever known.

    First, I see this poster for Macbeth re-imagined as like a zombie movie or something:



    Then comes word that Disney has optioned the rights to a script for a movie that amounts to "Groundhog Day set in a high school." We'll grant that the "day repeating over and over again" thing wasn't exactly original to begin with, but still: what the fuck? Why people gotta be shitting on awesomeness like that?

    So that Doc Martens ad campaign with the dead punk icons?

    Yeah... those dudes got fired.

    The concept was not approved and a press release from the shoe company stated, "Dr Martens did not commission the work as it runs counter to our current marketing activities based on FREEDM, which is dedicated to nurturing grass roots creativity and supporting emerging talent."

    The trailer for Control (pardon the subtitles)

    Music bio-pics (biography films) have been a dime a dozen lately: Jamie Foxx’s Oscar winning performance in Ray (Ray Charles) and Joaquin Phoenix in Walk the Line (Johnny Cash), but these are trade mark names; pop-culture icons, superstars, some of 20th century music’s legends.

    Congrats Mary Cheney on your new baby boy! One piece of advice for you: Remember to keep him away from Grandpa Dick. It’s not that we’re concerned he won’t love the little guy as much as his other six grandkids, we’re just worried that he’ll eat him.

    When it’s hot in Cannes, France, it’s sticky hot. Even when the sun submerges below the horizon for hibernation, Cannes still got hotter when the big parties started last night. In these identical tents with name-tags designated to different countries, small parties form along the beach every night, and it’s not exactly all the rage, but festivities are festivities—the spirit of Cannes engorges with each pounding bass beat on the streets.

    Consolation prize for the C's?

    In a way, this is good. In spite of what Bill Simmons said yesterday, we don't think Doc and Danny deserved to be rewarded for the way they've run this once-proud franchise into the ground. They've tried to rebuild the team by getting younger every year, and exactly one of those young players has started to exhibit any signs of putting it together (Al Jefferson.

    Allegedly, anyway. According to porn star and blogger Barbie Cummings in an interview with ABC News, Tennessee Highway Patrol Trooper James Randy Moss caught her with booze and prescription pills during what was supposed to be a routine traffic stop (92 in a 70). Cummings, a Knoxville resident who travels to LA here and there to film movie scenes, says she started to panic upon learning from Moss that the charge would prevent her from traveling over state lines.
