This is artist Bill McMullen' s concept of what an R2-D2 boombox might look like if George Lucas had actually marketed some cool Star Wars merchandise instead of all the crap I still bought anyways. Unfortunately, this "R2-Boom2" doesn't actually work, making it infinitely less useful for breakdancing. That sucker needs to pump some fresh beats! And also, project a holographic Leia. Best idea ever, or best idea ever -- you be the judge.

"It's a really tough business, I'm trying to take it seriously and make a quality product for kids but not have parents pay like $500 or something ridiculous for a pair of jeans," he said, bemoaning the perils of buying expensive clothing for the two sons he has with Spears. "You buy your kids a pair of True Religions then they roll around in the dirt like kids do and a $200 pair of jeans is gone. With this economy, I'm looking to do something much more reasonable."
OR -and stay with me here- you could simply not buy $200 jeans for toddlers.

Male MUST BE MID-LATE 20'S and SIX FEET OR TALLER. LEAD.
Physically powerful, very handsome, occasionally egotistical, petulant, and wild. A natural warrior with a quick charming wit who must be genuinely and severely humbled before becoming the compassionate, mature hero of our film.
So, if you know someone who fits the description, I suggest doing all you can to hide this opportunity from them. They've surely led a blessed life from being so physically powerful, very handsome, charming and witty, and you don't need to help them out any more. Why do you even hang out with this dude? As if you're going to get any girls with this egotistical, petulant, natural warrior around.

My picks are highlighted. I know the Academy loves magic, dead guys and women who starred in Shrinks, so I feel pretty confident.
Seriously (get it?) though: Heath Ledger earned a win tonight. As did Sean Penn... which he can tell Elton John afterwards, when Mickey Rourke staggers into the party carrying the (other) little bald man.
UPDATE: Okay... only got 12 right. Some day I may learn to stop voting what should win, and instead vote what will win. Should I have guessed that Benjamin Button's one-trick visual effects team would beat Iron Man and The Dark Knight? Yeah, probably. But then, the Academy followed my heart, and bestowed Best Actor on Sean Penn... like they didn't know Mickey Rourke's dog just died... so I dunno. All I can say for sure is that Nancy is either a closeted Academy member, or a sooooper Oscar genius. She whooped me yet again this year, 17-12.
