"Xanadu: the Musical". Complete with roller skating. What, they ran out of decent movies to rip off?

That sounds stupefyingly awful. In the old days I'd get together with friends, drink half a bottle of wine and smoke a joint, and see it for laughs.

Upon reflection, this sounds like the perfect pre-game DVD to play at a Superbowl party. Everyone could make up their own joke.

Was it "Starlight Express" which featured much roller-skating? Ghastly idea.

And as I think I mentioned before, I saw Starlight Express in German (although much of the cast were American and clearly had no idea what the lyrics meant).
I never said that

"Gay people exist. There's nothing we can do in public policy that makes more of us exist, or less of us exist. And you guys have been arguing for a generation that public policy ought to essentially demean gay people as a way of expressing disapproval of the fact that we exist, but you don't make any less of us exist. You just are arguing in favor of more discrimination, and more discrimination doesn't make straight people's lives any better." -Rachel Maddow to Jim DeMint and Ralph Reed

Question: will Olivia Newton-John reprise her role as Olivia Newton-John? ? ?

Alas, it is--I got a postcard about it urging me to buy tickets.

That is beyond disgusting.

Allowing little girls to embrace the plumage of sexual ripeness is just so offensive. Man oh man, does that make me sick to my stomach.

Not that I have any strong opinions about it.

the russert spin-off thread?

“One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going to take my little nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old burned-out warehouse. 'Oh, no!', I said, 'Disneyland burned down.' He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.”

Battery-operated mascara:
News that cosmetics behemoth Estée Lauder will be launching a battery-operated, vibrating mascara in the US this summer has caused a wave of eyelash batting the world over. Decorum dictates that we pass over the imposing legacy of female-orientated appliances that vibrate for no apparent reason, and focus instead on the magnitude that will be bestowed by the melodiously named TurboLash All Effects Motion Mascara.
Those inclined to scoff at the very notion that mascara might require battery power must be reminded that, in certain circles, the way you sweep your lash is everything.
