you can't be free

It was only a matter of time -- Nashville has been named America's Manliest City ... by the makers of Combos.

All four stars of Seinfeld will be featured in a multiple-episode story arc on HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm this fall.

Did you see the 25 DVDs that Obama gave to Prime Minister Brown?  I find this way more interesting than I should.

Man, I really want the big screen adaptation of Michael Chabon's Mysteries of Pittsburgh to be good.  Judging by the new trailer, it could go either way.

I heard that Jerry is going to have another sitcom about his life as a family man. Do you know anything about this?

Mysteries of Pittsburgh looks good, but I wonder if I've seen to much of the movie already...

• Beer Bear: As reported by a 1991 issue of the Orlando Sentinel, a bear who had escaped from the circus went into a Ukrainian bar and roughly slapped a patron, stole his beer and food, bit him, and then left. The bear was later found asleep in the park next to the pub. I don’t know about you guys, but I know plenty of non-bears who have had very similar nights.
