McCartney says see ya

Al Franken's bid to take a Senate seat became closer to reality over the past week as the Minnesota Democratic Party endorsed his candidacy.
Comedian Al Franken won the backing of Minnesota’s Democratic Party Saturday to challenge Republican Norm Coleman for his Senate seat in the fall.

Franken’s unanimous endorsement comes after weeks of bad press stemming from some of his sexually explicit satirical writings and sketches on “Saturday Night Live” as well as questions about his tax returns.
As if some of the things that politicians say these days don't fall under the category of comedy or satire? Show me a candidate whose under fire and I'll show you ten politicians that have betrayed their constituents with deceptive lies. Why do you think I took myself out of the field as a possible candidate someday? I'm bloody sick of the corruption that still exits whether you accept it or not. It's out there.

Once again, the BBC goes with propoganda over objective reporting.

Wearing a kippot 24/7 is no easy decision.

Making war movies these days can be very impossible given the low numbers at the box office but someone has to do it, right?

It cannot be, can it? Sir Paul McCartney is set to go into semi-retirement as far as touring the world goes?!? I'll be buying those tickets on ebay or stub-hub, or whereever I can get my hands on them. You cannot pass up the opportunity to see Paul McCartney, a member of THE BEATLES, in person for at least one time in your life.
Paul McCartney's next world tour will be his last - so he can spend more time wi th daughter Beatrice.

The former Beatle is about to announce plans for a colossal two-year tour. The huge string of dates, starting this autumn, will be one of the biggest rock tours of all time. Macca is expected to make £110million from the planned 100 gigs - more than £1m per show.

It will be his biggest tour since 1989-90 when he played 108 shows in Europe, the US, Japan and Brazil.

The tour will be in stages, taking in Europe, North and South America, Asia and Australia. The first dates will be announced in the next few weeks.

Beatrice, four, will join her dad - 66 this month - for sections of the tour.

Macca revealed his plan to close friends and family last weekend at his triumphant City Of Culture gig in his home town of Liverpool.

A source said: "Paul explained that this tour will be the last big one. He wants to settle down and enjoy Beatrice's childhood.

"The tour will be the last time he performs in many parts of the world. Beatrice and his family life are going to come first. He does not want to be away for months at a time."
Jason Segel talks about the new Muppets movie.

And go see You Don't Mess with the Zohan. Despite some negative reviews by critics, this movie was great. Adam Sandler, Rob Smigel, and Judd Apatow delivered yet another hit. I loved it. But then again, that would be a natural because well, you should know by now.
