From the "YOU HAVE TO BE KIDDING ME" files

Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth" is becoming an opera:

"MILAN, Italy - First it was the film and the book. Now the next stop for Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth" is opera.  La Scala officials say the Italian composer Giorgio Battistelli has been commissioned to produce an opera on the international multiformat hit for the 2011 season at the Milan opera house. The composer is currently artistic director of the Arena in Verona."

LOST only has 34 episodes left after tonight.

Mostly though, it's an excuse to post a picture of Evangeline Lilly (Kate).

Paramount silencing portions of Indiana Jones in theaters?
"Paramount has intentionally silenced bits of the soundtrack of _Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull in order to deter and track piracy. The notice acknowledged that the momentary silences were annoying but that it was out of their control. Basically it said, please don't bug the manager if the sound drops out, unless it lasts more than a minute."

This Billboard Ad

I won't lie and say words can't describe this billboard for American Gladiators.  There are lots of words available, but this is a mostly family friendly blog, so I will refrain.  Besides, a picture is supposed to be worth 1,000 words anyway.

Hulk Hogan's son planning reality show from jail, blames friend for accident
Hulk Hogan's son nick was drag racing with his friend John and crashed the car, leaving his friend in a hospital in a vegatative state. Nick got sentenced to prison for 8 months for the crime, and less than one day into his sentence, he calls his mom and says he can't take it. He also called his father and they blame John's karma for the accident and plan Nick's reality show for when he is released from jail. Here's an excerpt:

Hulk Hogan: Well I don't know what type of person John was, or what he did to get himself in this situation. I know he was pretty aggressive and yelled at people and do stuff. And for some reason God laid some heavy s**t on that kid. I don't know what he was into.

Nick Bollea: He was a negative person.

Hogan: He was what?

Bollea: He was a negative person. Will you work on that reality deal?

Hogan: Yep.

Bollea: Get that lined up so the minute I walk out, wherever I walk out of, it's there, boom.

Hogan: Can you do it while you're on probation?

Bollea: Of course.

Hogan: Do you want to do it with Pink Sneakers or someone else?

Bollea: I want to do it where I'll make the most money.
