I've got you baby... I've got you... all the way...

Cassavetes sisters join the Hughes brothers on Four Sketch project - I almost forgot all about the Hughes Brothers. They've been virtually invisible since 2001's From Hell.

- The plan, which Time Warner Cable will start testing Thursday in Beaumont, Texas, is aimed at charging users more for heavier volumes and faster service. Given the reigning orthodoxy that the Internet should be free, it's little surprise the digital crowd objects - No Mr. Gordon Gekko... you were very wrong. Greed is NOT good! And this is one reason why.

"The Americans get a warm, fuzzy feeling here," says Colin Brown of what Britain can offer to Hollywood. "There is something about the way that we tell stories and look at life and, believe it or not, even the sense of humour – whether you like it or not, the Americans admire the UK. A lot of the talent loves to work here. This is a great place to make a movie." The big exodus: Is the British film industry in crisis? I've read quite a few articles recently from different publications on this supposed crisis. Maybe they should consider Bollywood's recent Hollywood campaign.

    Regarding the Obama pic...all I can say is WOW! I watched the speeches on CNN the other night. I was just blown away. I think we all knew it was going to happen, but the reality of it was overwhelming for me. Empowered is what every black person in the country should feel right now...any country for that matter. It's certainly lighting a fire under my posterior! Big things are happening in 2008. Make it so!

    "President Barack H. Obama."

    Might take some getting used to in some parts of the country, but eventually everyone will be singing the same tune...

    LOL! That ONN clip is HILARIOUS! Thanks for sharing. Sad thing is that we're not that far away from what it suggests.

    And love that Barack and Michelle photo. I can't believe we might soon have a black man and woman in the white house. Wow!

    Some would say that we're already there.

    And yes, let's hope voters turn out en masse and vote Obama into the white house.
