Hmmm does this explain my birth sign?

I don't pay much attention to that whole astrology nonsense, but this article although poorly written, does have some correct traits about a Sagittarian male (or at least from my perspective):

Sagittarius Men

A man who loves social life and curious about every new progress, new development to make sure he is in the era and always have all up date information. He likes to know what the latest trend of fashion is and make sure he is not out of style. You can easily spot him at the grand opening of new pub, new restaurant for he loves to participate in social activity.

There is a few Sagittarius who is a private person as well, but you could see that he will be ahead of his friends. He will know what the best seller’s book is and what the top 10 hot hit of the week are. The hottest movies showing now, he must have already seen it. He hates routine, it makes him bored. He likes to get to his goals and succeeding in doing so is his true reward.

Money making is O.K. but it is not his true joy, for he can easily spend them in a short while. They say if you want the truth, go and ask Sagittarius. They are right, you can ask him and he will tell you all the truth and very straight forward. Even he may speak bluntly, his friend’s loves him. If you have problems, all your friends may feel sorry for you, but Sagittarius will be the one who will give you a helping hand first and even expect no return favor.

That’s why he is a real charmer even sometimes big mouth. When he is mad he can be quite fierce but quickly dissolve and easily forgotten. He is not a person who will take revenge, so if he says he going to burn down your house, you can relax. He likes compliments and sweet words, so you can manipulate him easily. If he knows you are not sincere, you will totally become meaningless to him. Some Sagittarius is gifted musician, or singer.

He is a happy soul, has a good humor and has lots of jokes. He loves freedom, lively and very energetic. If he is working, he will take his job seriously. He likes to travel, likes to see new exciting places. Going out or traveling make him happy. Sagittarius man is like a free bird. He lives as if everyday is Sunday. He will hardly be in a bad mood, but if he is in a bad mood, you will better leave his sight.

If you want to talk to him in such mood, try to avoid issue of commenting his life. He flirts like other man, but he has a built in brake, so he will come back to you by himself. If he disappear for a few days, not to worry for he is only recharging his battery to be that same lively person again, them he will be back. He has allergies to Pretty woman, so in love with many women for him would be normal. Setting dating schedule is his games and its fun for him, and this will keep him from being bored.

He hates obligations, so the word “marriage” would suffocate him. If you allow him to have freedom, he will not go anywhere. He falls in love as easy as he catches cold, especially if she is cute, funny and she has a strong personality. No one can tell how long he will be in love each time. If you want to really hold Sagittarius man, act like you are in an adventure movie. At all time, you should make yourself lively, tells him some jokes, always be cute so that it will ease up his allergy to other pretty woman a bit.

Shame, Shame on you Redskins

I am livid beyond words with the loss last night to the Philadelphia Eagles. Chad Dukes summed up my frustrations with the nonsense with the Redskins players and personnel. The man has earned my undying respect because I know how he feels as a fellow diehard fan, and he took the words right out of my mouth.

I am just disgusted with the way the Redskins organization has fallen apart in over the last decade. Since Dan Snyder has taken over, it's been one mistake and disaster after the next. I remember when the decision was made to bring Deion Sanders in and get rid of a Redskin workhorse, Brian Mitchell. The Redskins get Deion and think they're going to buy themselves a Super Bowl win? What did they get in return? The Redskins were made to look like buffoons, Deion left after one piss-poor season, and Brian did great in Philly.

I may live in Los Angeles, California right now- but I will always be a loyal Redskins fan. I've been a fan since I was two and a half years old. I was the one who made my family Redskins fans. My family have been putting money into the product and organization for decades. I am cut from the cloth of Redskins fan who cared about community, who went to the old RFK Stadium, who was used to playoff games, had faith in the heart of our team.

Does this team have heart now? Well, watch our overpaid big baby, "Fat" Albert Haynesworth, doing what he does best, rolling over and just giving up.

I am disgusted by the millionaires who could care less about their performance and how it comes off to the loyal fanbase, who pump money into their wallets and pay for their mortgages. Call me selfish or pardon me if I seem entitled, but I expect a little bit more than the visual abortion I saw on that field Monday night. We are a disgrace to the National Football League, and I'm tired of it. I'm sick and tired of Dallas Cowboys fans consoling me. They are laughing at us?! They've won only two freaking games all season and meanwhile, they look down on us?!! I should be looking down on them, but no, it always ends with the Redskins fans having to take the abuse.

I have Redskins memorabilia all over my house. I have autographed footballs, pics with my favorite player, Joe Theismann, who was my childhood hero. I was brought up on the old school of football, and their mentality. So, it makes me livid to see these players nowadays with their "me, me, me" philosophy. There is no team anymore- it's just players coming in, raping the fans for their money and moving on. Its players like that- who make the ones who actually try look bad.

Stick your heads in the ground like an ostrich all this week, Redskins staff and players. You should be ashamed of yourself. You should be kissing each one of our asses one by one for sticking through with you after what I saw Monday night.

X-Files 3???? Really??

There was an interview with David Duchovny in France's TVMag where it was suggested that the third X-Files script was being penned (I would assume it be the team of Chris Carter and Frank Spotnitz writing the script)- and would be returning to the show's labyrinthine mythology.

I was shocked that the movie was greenlit considering the box office failure that was X-Files: I Want to Believe, a movie that was geared towards the shippers (the fans who wanted Mulder and Scully to be together) and was an independent story.

However, Latino Review reports that the news was an error and that a script has not been written as of yet. I guess it would be nice for the fans that are left to have one last hooray for Mulder and Scully- but who really cares at this point? The original mytharc was so muddled by the end of the show that it was clear that Chris Carter had no clear idea where he wanted to take the storyline. And most importantly the great characters that supported Mulder and Scully in their adventures are already gone (X, Krycek, Cigarette Smoking Man, the Lone Gunmen), and I think the magic is honestly gone for The X-Files. It's something that can live on in comic form, but as a film franchise is pretty dead in the water.

I would suggest to Chris Carter, instead of focusing on a new X-Files movie, how about fans of Millennium get that feature film that has been discussed for over a decade now? Fans deserve it and dammit, Lance Henriksen deserves it as well. If you have written that script, Mr. Carter, I humbly apologize and encourage you to push for it. Shove it down a Fox's exec's throat if you must, but make it happen.

Like the poster on Mulder's wall says: I want to believe.

Just one more thing

As you can tell this Caprica fan, did not take the news of the cancellation very well:

RIP Caprica

We hardly knew ye, Caprica, but when the news of the cancellation happened, I can't say I was totally shocked. However, the remaining five episodes of this season 1.5 (which I will vent about later) won't be aired, and will be on the DVD for the remainder of the series that comes out in December. Syfy states that the cancellation stems from a lack of ratings- however, this show was mismanaged by Syfy from the get-go.

I have not seen such a botched attempt by a network for promoting a show since FOX dropped the ball with Firefly. The 18 episode first season has been stretched out for three years, and the first half of the season was starting to gain ratings momentum- but by that point, Syfy was ready to give the show the axe. Out of sight, out of mind. But for those who watched, Caprica was a riveting drama with true science fiction themes that was being played out. Yes, it was a different beast than Battlestar Galactica, but it still worked. After the first half of the season airs, Syfy has a break for an extended period of time to where people forget about the show. Then, they air it on another night that is filled with competition (Tuesday nights at 10 p.m.) with virtually no promotion, and expect it to succeed? And now, loyal fans have to wait until 2011 to see the remaining episodes filmed (shall we call this season 1.75 that airs in 2011?)?

Yes, it is true that since the series takes place fifty years before the events of Battlestar Galactica, so I do know that the Cylon War will inevitably happen. However, there were so many stories on Caprica that I was intrigued by such as what would become with Clarice Willow's plan to bring about Apotheosis, what becomes of Lacy Rand and if she rises in the ranks of the STO. Also, Barnabas Greeley could have returned in some form since James Marsters revealed that producers hinted that Greeley could have survived. Mainly, I was interested in how the two fathers- Joseph Adama and Daniel Graystone, would continue to interact and deal with their respective demons. Not to mention what would become of virtual Tamara and Zoe- and how they would be connected to the eventual Cylon war.

The show had a lot going for it, and Syfy dropped the ball with this series. Perhaps, they couldn't afford it after paying so much money for wrestling or it was crowding their Ghost Hunters or millionth Stargate spinoff- but it's a crying shame. I remember the Sci-Fi Channel and loved it, because it loved and cared about sci-fi, this new Syfy is an abomination and to let this series die such a thoughtless death is a tragic injustice.

To sum it up, all I can say is...

Frak you Syfy.

Randy Quaid is the mayor of Batshit Crazyland

Randy Quaid has accomplished what no one in Hollywood thought was possible...he makes Gary Busey look completely sane by comparison.

I heard that Trent Reznor wants to record a song in Randy's honor entitled, "Starwhackers Inc." for his next album.
