  3. Lots of Mexican joints in LA, but the one I like the best is called Pancho's Taco's, which is a dive in Venice/Ocean Park on Lincoln Blvd. If you ever pass it's way, stop and do not pass go...

  7. WASHINGTON, June 2 /U.S. Newswire/ -- Today, The Interfaith Alliance denounced an initiative from the Bush-Cheney campaign seeking to enlist campaign support in 1600 "friendly congregations" in Pennsylvania "If ever there were a question about the real intent of expanding faith-based initiatives and promoting a presence of religion in government, this tactic puts it to rest," Rabbi Moline said. The Bush-Cheney campaign has dropped any pretense of honoring the separation of church and state mandated by the Constitution, and puts in jeopardy the non-profit status of 1600 houses of worship by asking them to engage in partisan politics. The President should repudiate this initiative immediately. 1600 Pennsylvania churches for 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. How clever. How reprehensible." http://news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/u...ns_in_campaign1
  8. Joe Drape explores the best of the rest in his article "Who's Afraid of Smarty Jones? Eight Aren't" in the NY times. Here is an exerpt and a link to his article: "Smarty Jones has dominated his peers and is two-thirds of the way to winning the Triple Crown. But yesterday at the post-position draw for the Belmont Stakes on Saturday, it finally dawned on his rival trainers that this is a horse race and anything can happen and that unbeaten is a far cry from unbeatable. Eight horses will line up against Smarty Jones, the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness champion, when he tries to become the 12th horse to capture thoroughbred racing's holy grail and the first to do it since Affirmed in 1978. Only five horses signed on to deny Funny Cide's Triple Crown bid last year; in 2002, 10 horses tried to thwart War Emblem's bid. It takes only one horse, however, to slam the door on history, as Funny Cide, War Emblem and seven other winners of the Derby and the Preakness have learned over the past 26 years. The Belmont Park oddsmaker, Don LaPlace, may have made Smarty Jones a prohibitive 2-5 morning-line favorite off his eight straight victories, punctuated by a devastating 11½-length triumph in the Preakness, but yesterday several trainers bristled at the notion that they were running for second-place money in the $1 million Belmont. Unlike the first two legs of the Triple Crown, where a two-tier selection system injects strategy into the choice of post positions, the starting gates for the Belmont are determined the old-fashioned way, by a blind draw. At stake is 5 and a half million dollars." To read more, click here: http://www.nytimes.com/2004/06/03/sports/s.../03belmont.html
  9. Elena Dementieva, the 22-year-old Muscovite will player childhood rival, Anastasia Myskina, on Saturday in the French Open Women's Final. Dementieva defeated Paola Suarez of Argentina, 6-0, 7-5, in the first semifinal, yesterday. In the second, Myskina upset Jennifer Capriati of the United States, 6-2, 6-2. And they are feisty, too. '(You say) The Russians are Coming,' for how many years?" asked Morozova. " OK, finally, you ask: we deliver."
  10. Surrounded "by controversies over intelligence lapses about suspected weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks," CIA Director George Tent has resigned. His resignation comes when the CIA is under fire for purportedly leaking a Pentagon report "of highly classified intelligence to Ahmad Chalabi, an Iraqi politician," and insider friend to unofficial White House advisor Richard Pearle. http://apnews.myway.com/article/20040603/D82VN14O0.html

  12. I thought your video for clubber was clever. which piece specifically would you like feedback on?
  13. Ok--I will offer to take on one student, and only one student, for a tutorial on screenwriting. The course shall be titled The Basic Elements of Screenwriting, and requires reading two short texts, and writing 30 pages, or the first act of a screenplay, after the basic idea is approved. Topics will include Premise/Concept, Creating Character, Inner and Outer Conflict, Dialogue, Basic Structure, Turning Points, Openings and Endings. The basic idea must be about something that aspires to improve or comments on the human condition. Any genre. If more than one person signs up, I will choose the student based upon the merits of their idea. You can say that the teacher is a Hollywood professional who has worked with beginners as well as Academy Award Winning writers. The course will be ten weeks and structured, with ten 30 minute Q & A sessions over the internet. The relationship could lead to management if the student shows professional promise, but no guarantees. Last but not least the course offering is offered on behalf of Beatking in conjunction with your program with a bias going to a worthy Beatking member, if one so aspires to write. If your program gets off the ground, when do you see the course taking place. I need to know in advance so I adjust my schedule accordingly, if there's interest...

  16. I checked out one of Method's favorites: "hot boy-on-broomstick action" *** Apparently these sites have given WB alot of trouble, because copright violation is vague
  17. Further: The Anti-Social Behaviour Orders are being sought to combat illegal bill posting by record companies - an illegal practice which allegedly saves them up to £8million every year, by avoiding payment of advertising revenue - while taxpayers, the music-buying public, foot the £250'000 cleaning bill for removal of the posters. The record companies concerned have already been the subject of complaints and prosecutions over the issue, but continue the money-saving practice by flouting the law. A practice which up to now, seems to pay. Although companies can be charged and fined up to £1'000 per poster, the cost of bringing such a prosecution is high, and so far most local councils have been reluctant to prosecute. The Keep Britain Tidy group are constantly lobbying for action against the practice and back the new legal action. Alan Woods, for the Keep Britain Tidy group claimed that "there is a common myth that struggling artists, political campaigns and local promoters do the most flyposting. They don't. It is large multi-national record companies."
