Blame It On Cain

Mira Sorvino is cool. Mighty Aphrodite (1996) and Beautiful Girls (1996) showcase her talents, and she's a human rights activist. She turned forty today.

Quintessential Italian actor and ladies' man Marcello Mastroianni (1924-1996). Key work with Federico Fellini and others. Casanova '70 (1965) is a lighter romp.

Naomi Watts. Fantastic in David Lynch's Mulholland Dr. (2001). She's a year younger than Ms. Sorvino.

Janeane Garofalo (b. 1964), activist, comedian, critic. Hilarious on Air America Radio and, most recently, on HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher. Slated for a major role in 24.

Hilary Duff. Exotic looking, but I know little about her.

Today's Rune: Separation (Reversed).

Birthdays: Kung fu-tzu (Confucius), Thomas Crapper, Max Schmeling, Marcello Mastroianni, John Sayles, Janeane Garofalo, Mira Sorvino, Moon Unit Zappa, Naomi Watts, Gül Gölge, Hilary Duff.

Hopefully the Michigan state law makers will get their act together by Monday. Democratic Governor Jennifer Granholm could conceivably declare a state of emergency if all else fails. As a wakeup call, maybe she'll pitch some conservatives into the Detroit River.

What that you are just one horney little (no size pun intended) devil?

I'm a big fan of Janeane Garofalo. She's got talent. On the other hand, Hilary Duff, aka Hilary Doofess, doesn't.

Since I've got time on my hands, let me know where to sign up for the conservative-tossing event. I'd like to start with that liar, Mike Bishop. Can't very well be an obstructionist from the bottom of the Detroit River, can he?

Loved Mira Sorvino in "the Replacement Killers."

Thanks y'all ;)

Walking Man/Mark: Blame the header on Elvis Costello.

JR, you betcha, man.

Charles, right on.

Hilary Duff is fresh and cool. One day I heard her pitching a new perfume on TV and knew it was the right gift for this 14 year old I know ('cos first perfume is a special thing, and Hilary Duff has a great image, and the scent is also nice)
On the other hand, I saw a peek of a bellydance routine in her music video, it was very, um, tame, you know it's really nice, but Shakira-Hips-Don't-Lie it's not.
