Auto-Tune Me, baby.

Ever wondered what “auto-tune” is? Ever wondered why some of the worst singers can sound so good in the studio? Take a look at this…and don’t miss Katie Couric’s part at 1:21. It’s the best.

Here’s a look at the guys who put this together and why…

Lost EP Recap – EP 5.15 – “Follow the Leader”

It actually does sort of feel like a prize-fight build-up for tonight. Thanks to Tasty ‘Shops for the great poster. And that brings me to the best line/look of last week’s episode:

Locke: “I’m going to kill Jacob.”

Ben: “Jigga what?”

Last week’s episode was really more of a prologue to tonight’s two-hour season finale, and yet it was great in it’s own way. Jack’s going to detonate an H-Bomb. Locke suddenly has a deathwish for Jacob. And I have no idea what’s up with Sawyer and the sub storyline. So many great scenes and great questions. I think the biggest is this:

Free will…or Predestination?

That seems to be the biggest question being asked. Will we get an answer tonight? Probably not. But I still can’t wait! Some other great observations I found on the net…after the jump.

Movie Review – “Star Trek”


So much has been written about the new “Star Trek” movie that it’s almost pointless for me to add my own two cents. Basically, I thought it was great. Tons of fun. One of the best summer movies I’ve seen in a long time. It’s hard for me to imagine anyone walking out of this movie that did not have a good time. So I’d highly recommend it to anyone.

I guess what I’m impressed by most is how J.J. Abrams turned me around on the idea of a new movie. I can remember rolling my eyes the first time I read that there was yet another reboot of the franchise being put together. However, Abram’s track record (Lost, Alias, MI:3) caused me to at least give it a shot. And the first full trailer that I saw turned my skepticism into excitement. And when I finally saw the movie last Friday, it didn’t disappoint.

If you’ve seen it, then you definitely want to check out some of these links. If you haven’t, don’t. And go see it soon.

Sulu Dance.

As I prepare myself for a first viewing of the new J.J. Abrams-directed, retooled, new and shiny Star Trek movie tomorrow afternoon, I humbly offer up the Sulu Dance to you. Crank it up, 80s friends.

By the way, online movie-ticket-selling website/company thing Fandango says 10 percent of polled ticket buyers are planning to show up “in some kind of Star Trek costume.” I’m 90% sure that I won’t.

Been a cop long?

First, we deal with the passing of the great Jerry Reed earlier this year. Then last week, we find out that the car division Pontiac is being scuttle…virtually assuring that the Trans Am is gone forever. And I just learned this morning that the great Dom DeLuise has passed away.

“Dom DeLuise, the U.S. comic actor who gained fame on television and in movies such as “The Cannonball Run,” “Blazing Saddles,” “Smokey and the Bandit II,” and “The Muppet Movie” has died at age 75. DeLuise died on Monday night at a hospital in the Los Angeles community of Santa Monica, his agent Robert Malcolm said.”

There’s the Lone Ranger and Tonto. There’s Batman and Robin. There’s Riggs and Murtaugh. And then there’s Burt Reynolds and Dom Deluise.

“Dom always made you feel better when he was around, and there will never be another like him,” said Burt Reynolds in an e-mail.

I loved Captain Chaos. I loved Captain USA. And I loved the outtakes most of all. Dom, thanks for the laughs.
