metacritic review: The Adventures of Pluto Nash

Grafton Street Grill.
It's time again for one of those, here's where I went last night, type of posts. We went to the Grafton Street Grill in Cambridge. It was a great night to go there since the whole from of hte restaurant is open to the street.

The best thing about this place is that they have Belgian beers on tap, and they serve them in the corrrect glasses.

I was in heaven while drinking a nice cold Leffe Blond. There's something about this beer that you just don't get in American beers.

We shared some oysters which were great, and then had a pizza that was bland. We told the waiter and he said, "That's the kind of thing you don't go back and tell the chef."

Hmm... I thought it was the type of thing you did tell the chef. Even if he wasn't going to tell the chef, he could have told us that he apprecieted our comments and would pass them along.

Other than that, it was a perfect night to spend in Cambridge.

Homer, Barney, Apu, and Seymour sing together professionally on the weekends in an a cappella group called the Be-Sharpes. The four have agreed orally to split any revenues and expenses equally. No written agreement covers their relationship. All four have other jobs, with the weekend singing income serving as a nice supplement to their other income. Last weekend, the group was scheduled to sing at Tipsy McStagger's Good-Time Drinking and Eating Emporium. Homer never showed up. The group performed anyway and received its $1,200 fee. The group incurred approximately $200 in expenses. Upset by his absence, Barney, Apu, and Seymour did not share the $1,000 profit with Homer. Discuss whether Homer has a valid claim to $250?
I'd say no.

It's an unrealistically sunny day in June, but Mondrala is huddled over his computer, just as he has been since October. He has been working 60-hour weeks cutting the previews for just one movie: ''Signs,'' the new Touchstone film written and directed by M. Night Shyamalan.

It's Patently Offensive.

Another interesting page detailing the FCC's recent Enforcement Actions:

And this from a college radio station page:
Patently Offensive.
The standard applied is a national standard based upon what the
Commission at any given time believes will offend the "average"
broadcast listener. Because the standard does not look to local values
or sensibilities, it is discernible primarily through rulings as to what
the Commission finds offensive.

Examples of its findings include popular
songs which contain repeated references to sex or sexual organs ("Penis
Envy," "Walk with an Erection," "Erotic City," "Jet Boy, Jet Girl,"
"Makin' Bacon"); DJ banter concerning tabloid sex scandals (Vanessa
Williams' photographs in Penthouse and a honeymooner whose testicle was
caught in a hot tub drain); discussions between DJs and callers
concerning intimate sexual questions ("What makes your hiney parts
tingle?" "What's the grossest thing you ever put in your mouth?"); dirty
jokes or puns ("Liberace was great on the piano but sucked on the
organ."); non-clinical references to gay, lesbian, or oral sex,
masturbation, sodomy, erections, orgasms, etc.; and the seven dirty
words (shit, fuck, piss, cunt, cocksucker, motherfucker, tits).
