Quick Bits

  • The title of the new Bond movie has been announced, and what a mouthful it is: Quantum of Solace. Um, is it just me or does that sound like an entirely different kind of movie. I mean, I get what it means, and from reading a few articles about it, I know it was a title that Ian Fleming came up with, but really, it sounds like a lame 1990's softcore scifi movie... you know, something that Shannon Tweed would have been in... or maybe even something that Merchant Ivory would have put on the screen in their heyday with Helena Bonham Carter and Daniel Day-Lewis. But a James Bond movie titled that? It seems weird.

  • Sony and Hewlett Packard have come to an agreement that will see the latter produce DVD titles on demand for customers from the former's back catalog. There is also inklings that the other studios may also get involved with this venture. Of course, I hope that the writers get there fair share of these new sales when the strike finally comes to an end.

  • John Gibson has no soul and if I thought he also had balls, someone should repeatedly kick him in them for how he opened his radio show the night Heath Ledger died. Put it this way... there are a lot of people that I hate in the media, but if they died, I'd still have the respect not to, I don't know, make fun of the situation. I mean, it is simply ghoulish to do so, and to do it just hours after it had happened... it disgusts me as a human being.

I've heard of Planck's constant, but I never heard that anyone got any solace out of it. Headaches, more likely...
