Saints QB passes for 500 yards - and loses! (The three interceptions didn't help)
  • Brees's passing yardage total was sixth-highest in NFL history. The most is 554 by Norm Van Brocklin with the Los Angeles Rams in 1951.


Dolphins win with -3 rushing yards. Last time that was done was in 1961.

Peruvians fret over erotic theme park

  • In the past decade, Peru has been trying to distribute some of its wealth out of Lima and into the provinces. Those villages find some crazy ways to spend their money.
  • "People in Huayre are bemused by the uproar. National rulers, they figure, have been squandering their riches for centuries, so what's the big deal if Mayor Wenceslao Alderete hoped to attract tourists by gracing the village's central plaza with outsized images of genitalia and of the maca root, a tuber traditionally consumed as an aphrodisiac? The federal government had hoped for more attention to priorities in communities like Huayre, which still lacks paved streets or a sewage system!"
  • Whose priorities? Who needs a paved street when you have an erotic theme park? Hell, they probably don't have any cars to drive on those streets anyway.

Weekend Box Office Results for November 1719, 2006

  • The two major new releases came in about as expected.
  • The minor releases varied from the predictions, but the net result was a wash. Let's Go to Prison bombed, but the horror anthology picked up the slack by finishing a surprisingly strong tenth, despite being in fewer than 1000 theaters.
  • The group was down $38 million (22%) from last year. As you can see below, results were a bit softer than expected across the board, but that overall softness accounted for only about $10 million (6%). The remaining $28 million can be attributed to the fact that last year's results include the opening of a Harry Potter film which took in $102 million on its own!

Movie Reviews:

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





Glenda (1976)

Glenda, or "Snake Dancer," is a short South African exploitation film based on the life of the notorious exotic dancer, Glenda Kemp, who played herself in a story line very close to her own life, but not identical to it. The one major fictional embellishment of the film was an unhappy ending, Other than that, the details matched up. Glenda did grow up poor, was a Sunday School teacher, and started erotic dancing to help pay for college. She was deeply religious, a serious bible scholar, and saw nothing wrong with what she did. She considered herself an entertainer. In fact, she was still a virgin through much of her dancing career.

Director Dirk DeVilliers planned on cleaning up on this film because Glenda was the hottest thing in South Africa. Everyone loved her except the Calvinist government which kept trying to jail her for indecency. His plan was to release a heavily censored version at home, and an uncut version internationally. Unfortunately for his pocketbook, he cut too deep with his domestic version and people stayed away in droves. After all, what good is a biopic about a scandalous erotic dancer with no nudity? He also failed internationally, in part due to the outbreak of hard-core competition, in part because he didn't know his way around the international market, and in part because Glenda was unknown outside South Africa.

The condition of the source material varies from reel to reel, but Glenda Kemp is a very pleasant person, and I enjoyed the glimpse into just how restrictive South African society was. The DVD includes DeVilliers interviews, and a retrospective of South African censorship.

This is a C.

IMDb is nearly mute on this film. In fact, the upcoming release is the only reason it is now listed.



Glenda Kemp showed everything frequently.

Today is a "Babe in Bondage Day" as the Time Machine stops off in 1984 for sexy Barbi Benton all tied up and menaced by a bunch of baddies in Deathstalker. The lovely Lana Clarkson looks on.

Barbi was never a Playmate of the month, but was Hugh Hefner's housemate at one time. Back in 1969 she was a "Hee Haw" girl.

Dann reports on These Girls:

This cute 2005 comedy from Canada puts a new slant on coming-of-age comedies, and includes a funny and fun script, some very good acting, and tough-guy David Boreanaz of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, and Bones fame in a quite different role. Oh, he's still a tough guy, but with a wife, child, and three unwanted mistresses.

In the summer between graduating high school and starting college, three close friends in a small town all get smitten with the same guy, a slightly older hunk with a wife and baby. When two of the girls discover that their friend has been having an affair with the guy while baby-sitting, they decide to try him for themselves, much to the alarm of the baby sitter, who doesn't want to share.

After much strife between the friends, it's decided to share him equally, and they blackmail him into going along with the arrangement. This finally leads the very tired guy to rebel with a scheme to drive the girls away, but of course, that doesn't go very well either.

The Celebrity Stripper series continues


Charlotte Ayanna in Dancing at the Blue Iguana


...a pretty lady; I first saw her as the unintended corpse in "Jawbreaker."




Mia Kirshner in Exotica


...okay, I admit that I rented this film because of the name and the picture on the cover....

As I watched the film I started to get annoyed because "this is not the film I expected..."

...then, as I found out what was going on, I ended up liking this film.

It's not about strippers nor about the people who frequent strip clubs: it's about finding a way to cope with life when it gets sour.

Pat's comments in yellow...

David Fearn, 69, of Walsall, England, is such a 007 fan, he always wanted to be James Bond.  Now he is, and more, after changing his name to every 007 movie.  He is now "James Dr No From Russia With Love Goldfinger Thunderball You Only Live Twice On Her Majesty's Secret Service Diamonds Are Forever Live And Let Die The Man With The Golden Gun The Spy Who Loved Me Moonraker For Your Eyes Only Octopussy A View To A Kill The Living Daylights Licence To Kill Golden Eye Tomorrow Never Dies The World Is Not Enough Die Another Day Casino Royale Bond."  The 69-word name is the longest name change in UK history, and he says it's "the ultimate fantasy."

*  No, that would be his girlfriend, Honey Ryder Pussy Galore Domino
Solitaire Kissy Suzuki Plenty O'Toole Christmas Jones Jinx Johnson Vesper
Lynn Octopussy Schwartz.

*  He actually thinks this will get him Pussy Galore.

In perhaps the stupidest bureaucratic ruling of all time, trade standards authorities in Powys Count, Wales, told the Black Mountain Smokery, which for years has made Welsh Dragon Sausages, that they had to change the name because they don't actually contain dragon meat.
The owner said they've sold the spicy sausages for years, and nobody's ever complained that they didn't contain dragon.  But an official said the name was "not sufficiently precise" and might confuse consumers.  So it's been changed to "Welsh Dragon Pork Sausages." 

*  With a warning label: "Contains no Welsh Dragons." 

*  Who would be confused?  Has Jessica Simpson moved to Wales?
