The Complete Round-Up

Posted in Uncategorized by echan on October 3, 2009
  1. The Olympics – This is the BRIC century, so it’s only fair that Rio got it.  Since Beijing got it last year, it would be sorta rad if Dehli hosted in 2020.  Can you imagine a Bollywood-infused opening ceremony?
  2. Roman Polanski – Now that it’s serious filmgoing season time again,  I feel that perhaps we need to have some sort of boycott of the films in which the signatories of the free Roman Polanski petition had involvement.  It could be a long winter of Russian novels without movies, or perhaps we can go watch Chris Rock’s Good Hair, since he explained very eloquently why Polanski should come back to the States to face the music.
  3. David Letterman – What he did was very creepy, and if I was a CBS attorney right now, I’d be pretty worried about sexual harrassment suits, since I wouldn’t want a jury to watch his admission yesterday.  I must say, however, that I was extremely impressed with his candor on yesterday’s show while telling his “little story.”  We know that if Rielle Hunter had asked John Edwards for $2 million to go away, there would never have been a call to Morgenthau’s office.  So, to the next politician caught with his/her pants down, please do the country a favor, and pull a Letterman.
  4. Finally, in spite of Mark Oliver Everett’s crazy beard, I love this song (and I wonder, if Salman Rushdie cries himself to sleep while watching its video each night):

    2020 in Delhi would be SO AWESOME.

    Padma Lakshmi is so hot.

    I was joking, but Salman Rushdie probably does cry when watching that video at night:

    Oh. This is kind of sad, but I guess that’s what he gets. (I don’t actually know what the circumstances were of their breakup.)

    Padma dumped him.
