Up, Up And Away

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 ingl├ęs!"


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."


NEW YORK (June 28) - In a TV interview that aired earlier this month, Britney Spears told Matt Lauer that she and her family "just need privacy." But that didn't stop Spears from baring it all — literally — for the August issue of Harper's Bazaar, which hits newsstands next month. The magazine cover and photo spread, shot June 22 by fashion photographer Alexi Lubomirski, features photos that are reminiscent of Demi Moore's notorious Vanity Fair cover from August 1991, in which she posed very pregnant and completely nude. The cover photo is the only shot the magazine is officially releasing, but other shots have surfaced on several blogs without permission from the magazine. One of those photos features a newly black-haired Spears posing with her 9-month-old son Sean Preston while wearing a long black gown. Another shows Mrs. Kevin Federline provocatively lying on the floor, completely exposing her burgeoning belly while wearing a shearling-like coat and a white string thong. Yet another has her kneeling on a stark floor, holding her breasts and wearing nothing more than a gigantic diamond necklace. Spears was first spotted last week with jet black hair, a drastic change from the bleached blonde locks she sported in her interview with Matt Lauer which aired June 15. The domesticated pop star spoke with Lauer about paparazzi and addressed reports that her marriage to Federline, an aspiring rapper, is on the rocks. The interview took place at Spears' home, and the pregnant singer cried when Lauer asked her what she would say to the paparazzi who hound her constantly. "I would just say, 'You have babies at home, and you have a wife, and if you don't, you have to realize that we're people and we just need privacy and we need our respect and these are just things you have to have as a human being.' " She admitted to doing her own laundry, cleaning and cooking. "I still walk out of my house in rollers," she said. "I do not care what people think." Spears said she wants the sex of her baby to be a surprise when she delivers in the fall. The new issue of Harper's Bazaar will be available July 25. And yes, I am buying that magazine.

IT'S that helpless and highly embarrassing moment most of us have experienced at one time or another. You feel sick... and there's absolutely no way to stop it happening. It could be caused by stress, heavy drinking, a stomach bug or - as seemed to be the case with England captain David Beckham in mid-game against Ecuador yesterday - heatstroke. And the worst thing is, once you get the urge to throw up there's just nothing you can do about it - even if your discomfort is being watched by millions of World Cup viewers. At least Becks is in honourable company. Here are some more very public bouts of sickness. DURING his state visit to Japan in January 1992, GEORGE BUSH SNR responded to the arrival of Japanese beef steak (French-style) with a projectile vomit into the lap of Prime Minister Kiichi Miyazawa. Suffering from flu at the time, Bush then slumped under the table before getting up a few minutes later and announcing he felt great. BRITISH tennis sensation ANDY MURRAY vomited on court at the 2005 US Open. Play was halted after he suddenly threw up during a changeover in his first-round match against Romanian veteran Andrei Pavel. Murray blamed it on a pre-match sodium drink. "It is supposed to stop you from cramping," he explained afterwards. "It's got sodium and salt and everything in it. I just felt like I was going to burp, and then everything came up." WHILE making his film Super Size Me, MORGAN SPURLOCK threw up after finishing his first Super Sized meal. He vomited out of his car window after eating the McDonald's meal. The documentary maker went on to eat three meals a day from the burger chain for 30 days. He gained almost two stone in weight and suffered psychologically and physically. BIG Brother's GLYN WISE threw up live on TV on Saturday night. But the Welsh teenager had no excuse, as his sickness was self-induced. He had mixed his drinks during a night on the booze. And after downing champagne and cider the 18-year-old horrified his housemates by vomiting on his bed sheets and duvet. Other contestants sharing the communal bedroom could not stand the smell. They stuck his bedclothes in a bin liner and putting it outside. Next morning a sheepish Glyn was told he had "a lot of washing to do". CAROL THATCHER daughter of ex-Prime Minister Margaret, threw up on her parachute partner during a 12,000ft skydive. Carol was sick on herself and the skydiver she was shackled to during her unconventional entrance to the I'm A Celebrity: Get Me Out Of Here! camp. JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE reportedly threw up after eating too much at his restaurant last year. He was eating at Chi in Los Angeles but couldn't make it to the bathroom in time and was sick on the floor. Staff discussed how much they thought they could get for Timberlake's vomit on eBay. HOLLYWOOD star HALLE BERRY was left regretting she had insisted on doing her own stunts in hit film X-Men: The Last Stand after she ended up projectile vomiting on the crew during an important action sequence. The actress, who plays Storm in the movie, had to master a series of flying spins and suddenly became nauseous during the dizzying stunt. She said: "I chucked and sprayed the crew. I just laughed because there's nothing else you can do. I'm not looking to do that again!" CHANNEL 4's Extreme Celebrity Detox featured three famous chuckers who could not bear the gruelling regime at a training camp in the Himalayas. ROWLAND RIVRON, MAGENTA DEVINE and LISA I'ANSON all engaged in projectile vomiting before the cameras after enduring tasks which included drinking their own urine. CATHARINA GEISSLERIN was widely known as the "toad-vomiting woman of Altenburg". In 1642, she took the first step to notoriety by vomiting several toads and lizards. After a short break in hurling amphibians, she ejected 13 toads and spawn in 1648. After her death in 1662 medical men were eager to do an autopsy, expecting to find an interesting vivarium of toads, lizards and salamanders in her body. To their disappointment and astonishment, not a single animal was found. ROMAN munchers developed a skill to enable them to eat excessive amounts of food. The Romans used a concoction of rotten fish pickle to induce vomiting. After clearing out their stomachs they would readily return to the feast for another helping.The gills, intestines and blood of mackerel used in the pickle along with vinegar, parsley and wine. The mixture was exposed in the sun for three v months until the fish has rotted into a thick sauce. IF the urge to vomit strikes, I the advice from NHS Direct is ' to drink small amounts of sweet liquid and rest. But Beckham got up after the spasm had passed and carried on playing for nearly half an hour. And the good news from medics is that a sickness bout passing within 24 hours won't have any lasting effect.



This is'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!"


Last week's answer: yep, it's a vibrator. Okay, is it a sex toy or baby toy?

Okay, and now for...
Spider-Man 3: I almost wish I hadn't seen the teaser. It's just too mind-blowingly awesome. The weird ooze covering Spidey. The big reveal of the black suit. Peter falling into darkness. A Sandman cameo. Whoa.
Pirates of the Caribbean 2: Dead Man's Chest Swab the poop deck with a photo gallery, red-carpet footage and a boatload of clips. But Keith Richards won't be in yer spyglass until episode three. Arr! And with that I'm putting a moratorium on pirate-speak by anyone not named Davy Jones.
 This Film Is Not Rated: The trailer reveals which mysterious shadow organization controls Hollywood. No, it's not the Scientologists — it's the MPAA!

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, 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 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.
