I think that the unidentified woman in Hankster's pic of
the movie "The Stalker" may be Susan Hale. That was my
impression when I saw the pics, and the IMDb does list her in
the credits. The unidentified woman also looks similar to
pictures of Susan Hale in the back issues of the Fun House.
That said, I haven't seen the movie myself so I am not certain
of her identity.

Broadway had a banner
2005-2006 season as theatergoers snapped up a
record-breaking 12 million-plus tickets.
- Box office revenue
also increased by 12 percent to a whopping
$861.6 million compared to last season's
$768.5 million take. While venues along the
Great White Way were filled close to
capacity, averaging 81.6 percent, much of
that due to New York City's booming tourist
trade. Factor in the rise in orchestra seats
to $111 each as well as the price of
"premium" seats going for as high as $300
and Broadway not only rebounded from its
post-9/11 nose-dive, but also busted out
with its best-grossing year ever.

Lurking in Suburbia (2006)
Lurking in Suburbia (2006) is a comedy about one man's angst at turning
30 in suburbia. The part of suburbia was played by the Northern California
beach town of Pacifica, a place I visit frequently, but would not have
recognized from the film. I suppose the lesson is that nearly anyplace in
the USA can pose as cookie-cutter suburbia.
The entire film takes place on the occasion of his 30th birthday party.
He is the last of his peers to reach 30, and is struggling with a nasty
suspicion that he now needs to grow up, more or less having had his life on
hold in a perpetual struggle to stay emotionally in high school. He blames
his first girlfriend, who cheated on him when they were 14. We meet his
friends, including the star quarterback who lost his college football
scholarship when he outed himself, the ex-girlfriend who jilted him in
junior high, a the one friend who has a goal in life - to enjoy a threesome.
He lives in party central, where warm beer and cold pizza is the normal
breakfast, and all the old gang members are either his roommates or crash
there frequently. We see that he is a loser among losers, supposedly a
writer, but not really working on his book.
It appears to be a straight-to-vid and is hyped on the packaging as
"unrated," but in this case that simply means they didn't pay the MPAA to
watch it. Frankly, they should have paid me to watch it. This is not my sort
of material, and may seem funny to those in the same age group as the
characters, but it was lost on me completely. The main character narrates
the entire film. Since the film is about his internal struggle to grow up, I
suppose this constant verbal exposition was necessary to the concept, but it
certainly robbed the film of any pace it might otherwise have had.
Given the overbearing constant exposition and lack of any real dramatic
tension, I will have to call it a D+.
Scoop's notes: I watched this last week as well,
but passed on it. I agree with what Tuna has written, but would like to add
one other point. The DVD inside the box is not similar to the film promised
by the cover. For whatever reason, the marketers decided to position the
film as a zany, youthful, sex-and-kegs comedy targeted at the American Pie
audience. They even went out and hired pretty girls to pose in scenarios
which are on the box but not in the movie. The film is actually a reflective dramedy about growing old without growing up. It is a comedy, but one with a
lot of serious subtext, as opposed to a juvenile frat-boy film. I think I
might have preferred the latter. Perhaps many people would prefer the
latter, thus explaining why the marketers chose to position the film that
Pat's comments in yellow...
Two people who paid $22.95 each to see an exhibit called "The Ultimate Marilyn"
on the Queen Mary in Long Beach, California, are suing for a refund of admission
fees and punitive damages. The exhibit displayed hair rollers, a lipstick
holder, suitcases and other stuff that supposedly belonged to Marilyn Monroe,
but the plaintiffs claim she didn't own many of the items, and some were even
made after she died.
* For instance, that was NOT Marilyn Monroe's iPod.
* They didn't want to see a lot of fake useless junk!
They wanted to see a lot of genuine useless junk!
