"Robin Hood: Men in Tights" from Tuna
Robin Hood: Men in Tights (1993) Mel Brooks lambastes the Robin Hood legend. It is classic Brooks, full of Yiddish expressions, homages to other films, including his own, third wall violations, period anachronisms (a remote control to close the castle gate), and over-the-top characters. At times, it is downright silly. It more or less follows the classic Robin Hood legends, but Maid Marion has a chastity belt and no key, Robin's sidekick is Achoo, and his faithful servant is blind. Tracy Ullman is wonderful as the old crone Latrine, who has the hots for the Sheriff of Rottingham.
Marian is played by the lovely Amy Yasbeck. WHen we first see her, she is in the bath, wearing nothing but her chastity belt. Her breasts are mostly covered by her long hair, but I managed to find one definite nip slip, and I am not sure how much we are seeing in a few other frames.
IMDb readers say 5.6. US box office was $35.7 Meg. It is much nearer the bottom than the top of his films in popularity.

I was in the mood for a Mel Btrooks film, and really enjoyed it, While not his best effort, it is pretty entertaining if you are in the right mood. C.

Who decided that red means "stop" and green means "go"?
Apparently it was pre-auto. The railroads first started using red
for stop in the 1830s. They used white for go in those days, but
that had some disastrous consequences, and had to be changed. When
the first electric traffic signals were installed in Cleveland,
Ohio, in 1914, the conventions had already developed, and those
first signals used red and green indications. The first modern
automatic traffic signals used red, yellow, and green; and that

More and more people are getting their news from the internet.
- In the past two years, the number of people getting their
news from the internet has increased, while EVERY OTHER MEDIUM
has decreased, with national network television and public
television taking the biggest hits.
- The #1 and #2 sources are local TV news and local
newspapers, cable news has passed network news in the #3 spot by
declining less rapidly.
- Network news has shown a calamitous drop when looked at over
a longer period of time, which reflects the loss to both cable
and the internet. As recently as 1995, 62 of every 100 of
Americans got news from the nightly network broadcasts almost
every day. Today it is 36 of 100. Of every 100 Americans,
Nightly Network News has lost 3 of them every year, year after
year for nine years. And the rate of decline has not slowed at
all. It continues to deteriorate at the same rate - three per
year - between 2002 and 2004. In other words, the networks have
lost nearly half of their viewership in the past decade. I
suppose this is revolutionary. It must be about the same slope
as the decline in horse-drawn buggies after the invention of the

The trailer for Bomb the System: "'Bomb the System' is
the first feature in over 20 years to delve into the world of
graffiti art. The film, shot entirely on the streets of New York
City, is the feature debut of 23-year-old writer/director Adam
Bhala Lough. Mark Webber ('People I Know,' 'Storytelling,' 'The
Laramie Project') leads a talented young ensemble cast as Blest, a
19-year-old graffiti writer fresh out of high school with no
ambition for the future. New York City is Blest's playground. He
spends his days stealing spray paint from local hardware stores -
and his nights getting high and 'bombing' the streets with his
graffiti crew. He is the most wanted writer on the NYPD Vandal
Squad's hit list, and at the same time, is attracting attention
from the local gallery scene. But things quickly turn ugly when
15-year-old Lune, the youngest member of Blest's crew, is arrested
and brutalized by the NYPD. The crew retaliates by waging an all
out 'graffiti war' against the city: a war that ends up costing
more than one life in the end. 'Bomb the System' is a true New
York story - a cinematic poem dedicated to the art of graffiti,
and to the city where it all began more than two decades ago."

Johnny completes his coverage of "The L Word" season one DVD set.
The general consensus about the "The L Word" seems to be that while everyone agrees that beautiful actresses having lesbian pseudo sex on late night cable is hot, once you get past that, all you are left with is an overly dramatic soap opera.

HARRISON GUITAR BRINGS $567,500
Don't Pick It! - A guitar played by George Harrison in two Beatles movies
sold for $567,500 in a Christie's auction. But other music memorabilia,
such as Elvis' Army trenchcoat and Keith Richards' guitar from the
mid-'60s, failed to bring the minimum bids.
That's because George Harrison died very recently, and Elvis and Keith
Richards have both been corpses for years.
The joke's on them: Keith's guitar has over a million dollars worth of
drugs hidden inside it.

MICHAEL WELCOMES 200 KIDS TO NEVERLAND
Good Timing! - Friday, Michael Jackson greeted about 200 children who were
invited to the Neverland Ranch for a Christmas play date. When one child
shouted, "We love you," Michael replied, "I love you more." But instead of
staying to play with the kids, he put an umbrella over his head, walked
away, and got into a vehicle that took him away.
A paddy wagon?
Was he accompanied by large men in white coats?
