Hello, and welcome to another Peverett Phile. It seems like years since the last entry was posted, doesn't it? I'm now back onto my Thursday schedule, as you can see, and only days before July 4th which I don't celebrate, being British and all. So, what's going on? "Time” magazine’s cover story this week is on President Teddy Roosevelt, the man who said, "Speak softly and carry a big stick.” I’m sorry, that was Rush Limbaugh. I always get those two confused because Teddy Roosevelt is on Mount Rushmore, Rush wanted to mount more. Rush was talking about it on his show this week. He said that he was on a "boys only trip”. Here’s my question - if he’s on a boys only trip, why is he taking Viagra? Here’s an interesting fact. Even when Rush Limbaugh is on Viagra, he still "leans to the right.” More news coming out about those seven men in Miami that the FBI arrested, that were planning on blowing up the sears tower in Chicago. Did you hear about this? It seems they pledged allegiance to al Qaeda and were after virgins in the afterlife because they couldn't find any in Miami. Military commanders in Iraq say the day is fast approaching when we’ll start withdrawing our troops. I believe that day is called Election Day. In a speech in Washington, D.C., Delaware Senator Joe Biden said although he wants to be president he’d rather be at home making love to his wife. Which is ironic because Bill Clinton said the same thing. He said he also would rather be home making love to Joe Biden’s wife too. In theworld of sports things not looking good for the Pittsburgh Pirates. They have now lost 11 games in a row. To give you an idea of how bad they are, today they got beat by Ghana. Some sad news, the oldest living creature on earth has died. No, not Joan Collins. A 176 year old tortoise named Harriet. A 176 years old. In fact, do you know how the tortoise died? Sky diving accident. In an interview this week Paris Hilton said she never discussed sex with her parents. She said she was too shy to ask them about it. In fact, everything she knows about sex she learned from watching her own video. The U.S. is out of the World Cup. It got beat 2-1 by Ghana. The U.S. get beat out every four years in this, it's like Democrats. Of course, England is still in it. The U.S. got beat so bad the other day that U.S. fans tried to start a riot but it’s too hard for two guys to push over a car. A few days ago was take your dog to work day. What if you work at the pound? How does that work? Scientists are saying that in the future we will be able to have sex with robots. I tried that once. It was horrible. Right in the middle I had to call tech support. Forty-three percent of all Texans say that immigration is a serious problem. The other 57 percent said, "No hablo inglés!"
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (June 29) - A 12-year-old boy died after riding a roller coaster Thursday at the Disney MGM theme park, the Orange County sheriff's office said. The boy died after he was brought by ambulance to a hospital at about 11:30 a.m., a Disney statement said. The cause of death was not immediately known, Sheriff's spokesman Jim Solomons said. Park officials closed the Rock 'n' Roller Coaster but said a preliminary investigation showed the ride was operating normally. A Disney Web site description of the ride says: "Zoom from 0-60 mph with the force of a supersonic F-14, take in high-speed loops and turns synchronized to a specially recorded Aerosmith soundtrack."
THERE IS A GOD
This is Disney.com's comment form. Which, when you read it, contradicts itself. At the bottom it says, "If you don't enter a first name we can't put your message on TV or online." Then it warns, "Careful, no personal information!"
SEX TOY OR BABY TOY
Last week's answer: yep, it's a vibrator. Okay, is it a sex toy or baby toy?
-Islands of Adventure-Busch Gardens. Music: Stretlight Manifest - Here's to Life.
Snakes On A Plane: Hey, here's a good idea — unlike previous footage, the new teaser actually has snakes in it!
Marie Antoinette: After watching the trailer, I've finally figured out what's more annoying that watching foofy French royalty prancing about in corsets: nothing.
Evan Almighty: The bigger the boat, the longer the beard.
Ghosts of Girlfriends Past: Back when he still had a career, Ben Affleck really was gonna star in this. Replacing him is Matthew McConaughey, who perhaps doesn't realize the movie's about a guy with a ton of dead ex-girlfriends. Am I the only one who thinks that's a wee bit creepy?
Downloadable Netflix and iTunes Movies We are thisclose to downloading movies through iTunes and Netflix. I already lost my music library to a computer crash once — now I can lose my movies, too! Oh, and the thought of putting a Netflix box on my already-crowded TV isn't all that appealing …
And now, for...
That didn't take long, and apparently making it won't take long either. Fox has announced that Wolverine, the X-Men spinoff starring Hugh Jackman, will debut in theaters next year. The lucky folks at Cine Expo in Amsterdam got the official word, complete with a taped message to attendees from Jackman. There's no word on specific start or release dates, though Jackman's dance card already seems full with at least three other projects, including a Baz Luhrmann World War II–era romantic epic. … And joining Wolverine and Spider-Man 3 in next year's battle of the big-screen comic-book heroes are the Fantastic Four, who will be battling the Silver Surfer in their second outing, reportedly titled Fantastic Four and the Silver Surfer. All four "fantastic" stars — Jessica Alba, Michael Chiklis, Chris Evans and Ioan Gruffudd — are back for the sequel, as they prepare to deal not only with the nefarious Surfer but also the return of Dr. Doom (Julian McMahon). The movie is scheduled to hit theaters next June 15. That's less than a year, if you're an overly excited fanboy.
Robin Williams is letting it be known that he would love to tackle the role of the DC Comics supervillain in the next Batman episode. In an interview with Film Force, self-professed comic-book junkie Williams says he'd love to play The Joker, especially if director Christopher Nolan's Batman Begins sequel includes the character's back story. "Oh, God, I'd love to do that one," Williams says. "You know, if they do Arkham Asylum, it would be amazing. Arkham Asylum is one of the greatest, nastiest comic books ever. It's truly … it's like the Marquis de Sade on that level, and wonderfully damaged and quite tragic, in terms of when you realize [what happened to] create these characters." Williams' name has been among those circulated around the Internet as likely Joker candidates, along with Adrien Brody and Paul Bettany, though there's been no actual confirmation from Nolan that The Joker will be featured in Batman Begins 2. … In other sequel news, Moviehole.net is claiming that The Mummy 3 is a go, and that Brendan Fraser and recent Oscar winner (and new mommy) Rachel Weisz will both return for what is actually the fourth Mummy movie, if you count The Scorpion King.
Okay, with that said, that's it for another Peverett Phile. Check out the Phile's webshots page at http://community.webshots.com/album/527540184iyFFCs I am up to 21 pages already, with more about the be loaded this weekend. logan and I are hitting Epcot tomorrow and MGM on Saturday. And on Sunday I plan to see a little movie about this superhero guy. That's the plan anyway. Remember, spread the word and not the turd. I will leave you with a random pic. I'll be back next Thursday.
