D-Backs' Webb wins wide-open NL Cy Young race

  • Reliever Trevor Hoffman, who was considered the likely winner by many experts, finished second in a fairly close race, with Carpenter in third. Only three of the voters left Webb off their ballots, but 9 failed to vote for Hoffman, and Carpenter was also left off 9 times.


As expected, Santana was the unanimous choice for AL Cy Young Award

  • The amazing thing about this is that Santana was the unanimous choice as the best pitcher in the league, yet he was NOT the best pitcher on his own team! Look at their stats side-by-side. Liriano schooled him in every single important category except innings pitched. Assuming Liriano's surgery (last week) goes as planned, those Twins will be a force to reckon with. Santana is only 27, and Liriano is a mere 23!

Movie Trailer - Factory Girl

  • "The young, beautiful and wealthy socialite Edie Sedgwick (Sienna Miller) exploded onto the New York art scene in the sixties, becoming the object of Andy Warhol's (Guy Pearce) attention and art. However, the same things that built her up would eventually lead to her downfall."
  • Get this casting: Anakin Skywalker plays Bob Dylan! (Edie was said to be the inspiration for Dylan's "Just Like a Woman.")

Movie Reviews:

Yellow asterisk: funny (maybe). White asterisk: expanded format. Blue asterisk: not mine. No asterisk: it probably sucks.





Giovannona Long-Thigh (1973)

"Giovannona coscialunga, disonorata con onore," is a Sergio Martino comedy starring Edwige Fenech. Do not confuse this with the Italian sex farces, it is far more a mainstream comedy, although Martino did managed to get Edwige Fenech to show her breasts in a few scenes, and her buns in the trailer.

A new judge goes fishing and discovers industrial pollution in the stream. Since the only industry in the area is a cheese factory, it is pretty easy to assign blame. The owner of the factory charges his assistant to find an "honorable" or high government official to make the problem go away. A friendly monseigneur, in exchange for a gift of land, delivers just such an honorable with a built in weakness. He likes other men's wives. The assistant hits on the solution. Hire a hooker (Fenech) and have her pose as the wife.

Of course, the honorable is already married, as is the factory owner, and Fenech has a serious drawback in the form of a potty mouth. In fact, much of the humor of the film was to be found in the dialogue, which included many different dialects. They made a real point of trying to catch the flavor of the dialogue in the sub-titles rather than translate literally, but I am sure this is much funnier to Italian speakers. There are several running gags, many of them what I would call musical beds, where people keep changing rooms, and nobody is where anyone else thinks.

Fenech, as usual, looks phenomenal. In the special features, she mentions that she made a conscious decision to stop doing nudity after she realized how powerful film as a medium was.

This was the first comedy by the Fenech and Martino team after a succession of Gialli. Fenech claims that he invented this genre with this picture. Honestly, I found it only mildly amusing, but liked the cast very much, and thought Fenech stole the show.


IMDb readers say 6.3 based on 50 votes.



Edwige Fenech



New Jack City (1991)

Mario van Peebles first film was a major innovation in black gangster films at the time it was made. The film was considered so realistic and inflammatory that it was actually withheld from some theaters for fear of gang fights.

It chronicles the rise and fall of a drug lord who did for crack what Henry Ford did for automobiles.  Two rogue cops, Ice Tea and Judd Nelson, intend to take him down. Their plan is to clean up a a crackhead (Chris Rock) and put him under cover.

Add me to the list who liked this film. I was never sure where it was going, Wesley Snipes was appropriately nasty as the head bad guy, and I liked the authenticity of the characters very much. While the film has a definite air of authenticity, it most certainly doesn't condone drug use or gang activity, nor does it make either seem like an attractive life style.

This is a C+.

IMDb readers say 6.1. Ebert enjoyed it at 3.5 stars. Rotten Tomatoes shows 78% positive reviews.

Notes and collages

The Celebrity Stripper series continues

Salma Hayek in Dogma (l) and From Dusk 'til Dawn (r)


... Ms. Hayek is a stripper in Dogma (among other things.) I recommend this film for you who like a different slant on things: the story is about two disgruntled angels. It was made by the same guys who put together "Clerks" and "Chasing Amy." You can see one of those guys ("Silent Bob") in this collage.


... The other collage is technically not a strip scene in the conventional sense, but Ms. Hayek looks amazing in this very creative film about vampires ...




Kay Lenz in Stripped to Kill


... for younger folk ... who is Kay Lenz? Feel free to visit IMDB; she was quite the hottie when I was growing up.









Jose's Place: Tara Ashleigh

Kelly Brook shows some monstrous cleavage.

Hysteria: Lynn Snelling

Hysteria: Emmanuelle Vaugier

Totally Awesome: Zara Taylor. That's not a comment, but the name of the movie. Works both ways.



Pat's comments in yellow...

WENN News reports that Heidi Fleiss has hired Mike Tyson to be a male escort at Heidi's Stud Farm, her new brothel for women in Nevada.  She said, "I told him, 'You're going to be my big stallion.' It's every man's fear that their girlfriend will go for Mike Tyson."

*  I guess now we'll find out if "Iron Mike" is just a nickname.
*  This is impossible to believe!  Mike Tyson, PROSTITUTING himself?!!

After first rejecting the donation of 4,000 Talking Jesus dolls, the Marine Reserves' Toys For Tots program agreed to take them, saying they have "found appropriate places for these items"...It's going to be a happy Christmas for all the poor children of Branson, Missouri...So, they finally accepted Jesus

* It suddenly dawned on them: how many Muslim and Jewish kids would have even applied to receive Christmas gifts?

On this day in 1973, President Richard Nixon made his famous "I am not a crook" statement to a meeting of A.P. editors at  Disneyland.

*  To be precise, in Fantasyland.
