    In a move that in no way sounds like a publicity stunt to us, Dustin "Screech" Diamond (we think that's his legal name at this point) has released a sex tape. The Daily News story mentions something about a "Dirty Sanchez".

    TMZ has a preview up now, for those of you brave enough to watch it.

    President Bush is going to discuss Borat with the President of Kazakhstan about American-Kazakhstani relations in the wake of the soon-to-be-released Borat movie. Borat, as you may know, is Sascha Baron Cohen's bumbling Kazakhstani character who portrays his home country in a less-than-favorable life.

    You know things are bad when Michael Irvin is being interviewed to talk about your problems. In honor of the first high profile death-by-pills unsuccesful suicide exploited by a basic cable channel since Kurt Cobain's Rome dress rehearsal, we are going to start the over under on his next endorsment (30 days), his next suicide attempt (3 months), and his impending book of poetry and life affirmations (6 months; optioned in a year).

    We're not sure exactly how they haven't been shut down yet, but there are sites that enable you to watch every episode of Futurama, The Simpsons, and South Park in your browser. We'll see you later, productivity.

    Also, you didn't hear it from us, but if you missed The Office on Thursday, you might be able to find it here . . .

    Cambridge-based video game development company Harmonix, the mind behind the wonderful Guitar Hero and its hotly-anticipated sequel, has been bought by MTV. This doesn't seem likely to affect Guitar Hero II in any way, but it probably will influence future Harmonix games.

    This could be a good thing, if that means Harmonix will get the financial heft necessary to gain the licensing rights to certain songs, like "Back in Black," "Master of Puppets," or pick-your-Led-Zeppelin-song.

    Ohhh man. I'll put it out there: I like the US version better than the English one. There, I said it. Call me a phillistine or a pansy if you must, but I do. These days,though, I would think even the most Anglophilic among us has to at least concede that the US version has its moments.

    And tonight's premiere was classic. Really, the perfect way to keep things interesting after the big Jim-Pam thing: take Jim out of the equation.

    Mel Brooks is bringing Spaceballs to television. The animated show, which is expected to lampoon sci-fi targets just like the 1987 classic film on which it will be based will air on G4. What's up with G4? It used to be a cable network devoted to video game-centric programming, and now it shows random stuff - Star Trek 2.0, re-runs of Arrested Development, all-night Man Show marathons, and now this.

    The new Buffalo Sabres jerseys, unveiled on Monday night, look like shit.

    "These look like shit," said Sabre fan Tim Moscato. "As if the town hasn't suffered enough. Now we are wearing Pittsburgh Penguin colors. And what's with the fuckin' logo. Is that a slug?"

    And so ends our version of the Brushback Report.

    So last year, Krpata writes a Fall Preview and, almost immediately thereafter, Rockstar games held a press conference announcing a delay for Bully, at that point the most-anticipated game for Q4 '05, rendering the just-out-on-the-streets paper already out-of-date.

    This year? Also already out-of-date. Nintendo today announced the Wii launch date and price - November 19 at $250.

    Saw this over at Cinematical: apparently the Chinese are considering building a theme park devoted to Bruce Lee, which will include a roller coaster and - wait for it - Giant Robotic Bruce Lees patrolling the park.

    Not to bring everything back to a Simpsons reference, but doesn't this sound like a recipe for disaster? We all remember this, right?

    We're not sure what to think of the photos (we think she kind of looks like her mom), but, since we're 12 years old around here, here's her bronzed poop:



    Buy it now!

    Also, is it us, or does the name "Suri" remind anyone else of Mr. Burns's Lil' Lisa Slurry?

    So stop searching, you morbid fucks.

    But here's the odds on the video being released:
    3/1--someone leaks it from the police department (Australia is full of ex-cons anyway. You've read Great Expectations.)
    6/1--it gets dragged onto a 4-hour special on his life. Proceeds go to charity.
    10/1--Some kid in Iowa tries to recreate the stunt so he can put up a video on YouTube and actually dies himself. Hilarity ensues.
