Today’s quote: Ringo Starr

I am particularly glad to no longer be asked when the Beatles are coming to iTunes

… quoted in today’s press release in which Apple announces the availability of The Beatles on iTunes. At least they only asked him the same thing for seven years. Trust me, it could be worse.

Today’s quote: Simon Pegg

Watching TPM (The Phantom Menace) in 3D would be like the car actually crashing into your face as opposed to just unfolding before your eyes. (via Twitter)

Yesterday George Lucas announced that he’s going to re-release all six Star Wars movies, this time converted in 3D. Please stop, George. Haven’t you already done enough?

Today’s quote: Christine O’Donnell

I try to keep this blog fairly politics-free, but this one was just too good to pass up. I just saw this material on Christine O’Donnell, Republican Party nominee in Delaware’s 2010 United States Senate.

On evolution (emphasis added):

Well, creationism, in essence, is believing that the world began as the Bible in Genesis says, that God created the Earth in six days, six 24-hour periods. And there is just as much, if not more, evidence supporting that.

On masturbation:

If she wins I will never… visit Delaware or something. It really makes you want to laugh. Or cry. Or feel very scared.

I must admit that I’m a little turned on by that video.

Today’s quote: Flemming Rose

flemming-rose-jyllands-posten-2007

It’s like asking a rape victim if she regrets wearing a revealing shirt for a Friday night out.

Fleming Rose, culture editor of the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten which published 12 cartoons depicting the Muslim Prophet Muhammad in 2005 that led to an outbreak of riots in the Muslim world in which over 50 people were killed. Full article.

Today’s quote: Steve Wozniak

After hearing that judge Bruno Tonioli of Dancing with the Stars said: “It was like watching a Teletubby going mad in a gay pride parade”.

 

I think it should be noted that Teletubbies aired for 5 years, had 365 episodes, and a #1 music single! I’d take that as a compliment.

You can watch Woz dancing like a Teletubby going mad in a gay pride parade in out previous post. Or just go vote for him.

Today’s quote: Islam Shahawan

We are telling our people that the past era has ended and will not return. The era of justice and Islamic rule has arrived.

Oh boy, this is going to be fun. Now it’s only a matter of time before they open a Disneyland clone in Gaza city.
Other interesting notes:
  • Sami Abu Zuhri, a Hamas spokesman, heralded what he called Gaza’s second liberation, after Israel’s 2005 evacuation of the coastal strip.
  • Fatah officials said seven of their fighters were shot dead in the street outside Preventive Security building. A witness, Jihad Abu Ayad, said the men were being killed before their wives and children.
    “They are executing them one by one,” Abu Ayad said. “They are carrying one of them on their shoulders, putting him on a sand dune, turning him around and shooting.”
  • The rival factions have been engaged in bloody battles since Sunday, resulting in the deaths of at least 70 people. By noon Thursday, at least eight people had been killed. Al-Jazeera TV reported early Thursday afternoon that the death toll had climbed to at least 16.

For a Jewish boy growing up on Long Island, to have dinner with Steven Spielberg is like being bar mitzvahed twice.
