Snakes on a Phone

In what has to be one of the most brilliant marketing schemes ever devised, you can arrange to have Samuel L. Jackson email or phone a friend or relative and urge them to take you to see Snakes on a Plane, a film that's achieved legendary status months prior to its release.

Just go to, and click on the cellphone. Hilarity will ensue.

Quote of the day

Police said today that they found a bottle of tequila in Mel's Lexus. So let's sum up what happened here: Mel Gibson, who grew up in Australia, was drinking alcohol from Mexico in his Japanese car while yelling about the Jews in Israel. You know where he was coming from? A Thai restaurant. Welcome to America.
-Jay Leno

It appears there is also a Pink Side to The Force. The potential marketing/intellectual property dispute opportunities are staggering.

If the Administration was truly concerned about the welfare of society, they'd fund stem cell research and ban Photoshop.

Quote of the day

The connection between no sex and anger is real. It's why prizefighters stay celibate when they're in training: so that on fight night, they're pissed off and ready to kill. It's why football players don't have sex after Wednesday. And, conversely, it's why Bill Clinton never started a war.
-Bill Maher

Quote of the day

When the church wins the culture wars, it inevitably loses. When it conquers the world, it becomes the world. When you put your trust in the sword, you lose the cross.
-Rev. Gregory A. Boyd, who spoke his conscience and lost about 20% of his flock.

Other quotes from the article:

America wasn't founded as a theocracy. America was founded by people trying to escape theocracies. Never in history have we had a Christian theocracy where it wasn't bloody and barbaric. That's why our Constitution wisely put in a separation of church and state.

I am sorry to tell you that America is not the light of the world and the hope of the world. The light of the world and the hope of the world is Jesus Christ.

I don't think there's a particular angle we have on society that others lack. All good, decent people want good and order and justice. Just don't slap the label 'Christian' on it.?

So there.  
The e-mail address is now something other than saga. used to be until December, 2007 when the domain name broker Trout Zimmer made an offer I couldn't refuse. Giving up and adopting created a significant problem, however. I had acquired the domain name in 1993, and had since that time used as my sole e-mail address. How to let people know that was no longer but rather which is longer than and more letters to type than and somehow less aesthetically pleasing than but actually just as functional as I sent e-mails from the address to just about everybody I knew who had used in the past decade and a half but noticed that some people just didn't seem to get the word about the change. So it occurred to me that if I were generate some literate, valid text in which was repeated numerous times and posted it on a bunch of different pages- say, a blog indexed by Google- that someone looking for would notice this paragraph repeated in hundreds of locations, would read it, and figure out that no longer is the they thought it was. That's the theory, anyway. Ok, I'm done. Move along. Nothing to see here...
