WTF are they thinking??

I have no idea why so many dumb asshats are paid too much money to keep making bad decisions at the Networks:

"Shark" - CANCELLED. *sighs* Stellar cast, well written. Yupp - that's a reason to cancel it!

"The Unit" At least Moonves had the brains to pick up "The Unit" for another season. However, his intelligence is limited : it's looks to be slotted at the worst possible time and night: Friday, 9 pm.

"Men In Trees" one of the networks most heartwarming, endearing shows -- CANCELLED. Maybe if the ASSHATS at ABC hadn't moved the show SIX times and made it endure two LONG hiatus, the show's ratings could have increased. The final few episodes will air starting May 28th. and a special series finale has already been shot.

"Women's Murder Club" - CANCELLED. *sighs* Asshat-ness runs amok at ABC.

"Eli Stone" - someone at ABC had a momentary flash of genius and renewed "Eli" for a second season.

"New Amsterdam" - CANCELLED. *sigh* I am at a loss for words. I 'm mourning the death of the once immortal John Amsterdam.

"Sarah Conner Chronicles" *grrrr* They bury John Amsterdam, but resurrect that boring over produced, uber expensive, badly written, badly acted, piece of recycled garbage. FUCKING ASSHATS!!

I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell

In the summer of 2006 - while staying at the home of one of my dearest and closet friends, the absolutely fabulous Max Wong, Producer of the uber successful " Bring It On" - I had the pleasure to meet the iconic baudy- meister - Tucker Max.

He's was very charming, and much better looking in person than the photo of him on his website.

For those of you living under a rock, here's all you need to know about Tucker from The Hollywood Reporter:

Tucker Max will adapt his bawdy best-seller "I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell" into a big-screen comedy with director Bob Gosse.

"Hell," now No. 12 on the New York Times best-seller list after a three-year run, chronicles Max's alcohol-fueled true adventures. The film will follow his trip to a friend's bachelor party, where he ensnares the groom in a lie that threatens the wedding, then abandons him to pursue further carnal knowledge. After being banned from the nuptials, Max attempts to get back into his friend's good graces.

Pinkslip Pictures' Max Wong ("Bring It On") and Karen Firestone will produce with the Collective's Aaron Ray ("Big Momma's House"), Max and co-screenwriter Nils Parker. Gosse previously helmed "Niagara Niagara."

Max rose to fame after launching TuckerMax.com in 2002, garnering millions of unique site visitors to read his short stories and a $300,000 advance for his Penguin Books memoir.

But Max's road to the screen has been a long one. In 2003, he sold a TV pilot based on his site and book to Fox and then NBC, but rights quickly reverted back to him after a regime change. Three years later he sold the show to Sony, and Comedy Central bought the pilot, but the deal was canceled after a dispute with Sony about feature film rights.

Film is set to shoot in Shreveport in June.

Tucker is fan of citizen journalist Michael Yon and has done much to support our Troops.

Casting has begun ---- and while no one has been set to play Tucker---a certain Hotty McHotty ( sorry I've been sworn to secrecy!!) is all but set to play the character of Slingblade.
I've decided to call Hotty McHotty "Campbell" because he is Mmmm Mmmm Good :>)

The Tucker Max Message Board: This place defies any sort of description! Enter at your own risk!!

Think About It......

If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep... you are richer than 75% of this world.

If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish someplace........ you are among the top 8% of the worlds wealthy.

If you woke up this morning with good health..... you are more fortunate than the million who will not survive this week.

If you have never experienced the danger of battle unfolding all around you, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation... you are ahead of 500 million people in the world.

If you can attend a church meeting without fear of persecution, harassment, arrest, torture, or death... you are more blessed than three billion people in the world.

If your parents are still alive and still married...you are very rare, even in the United States & Canada.

If you can read this message, you are more blessed than over two billion people in the world that cannot read at all.
