Straight from Maxim comes a full gallery of movie aliens that look like genitalia.

The space diamond is virtually an enormous chunk of crystallized carbon, 4,000 kilometers in diameter. The stone is located at a distance of 50 light years from Earth, in the Constellation Centaurus.
Scientists believe that the diamond is the heart of an extinct star that used to shine like the Sun. Astronomers have already dubbed the space diamond as Lucy in a tribute to the Beatles song ‘Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds.’
Comedy mastermind Sacha Baron Cohen recently told UK newspaper The Telegraph that he has retired his two most popular characters, Borat and Ali G.
Yes, despite News Corporation CEO Rupert Murdoch’s announcement last February there would be a sequel to Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, Baron Cohen says that hapless/racist Kazakh journalist and hip hoppin’ UK interviewer are just too popular for him to work with in the manner he is used to.
The long fabled ModBook, which you might recall from Macworld 2007 (here is a video of the ModBook, and a gallery), is going to ship on or around January 8th, 2008 a year since it was announced. Since the ModBook has been delayed so much, its specs have changed. It is now running Leopard, the GPS option is standard (formerly $99), and the specs reflect the latest MacBook hardware rev (since the ModBook is basically a MacBook converted into a tablet with a pressure sensitive touch screen).

An Eldergame.com blogger recently waxed poetic about the death penalty in World of Warcraft and why it is much harsher than the death penalty in Everquest 2.
Among his talking points are the harshness of the death penalty, the equipment damaged in death, the glitches in death, the purpose of death penalties and the side-effects of death.
I read about this stuff somewhere else too….hmmmmm, where was it.
Oh yeah, in The Bible!

Writers be damned!
The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and The Colbert Report will return to air on January 7 without their respective writing staffs after being on hiatus since the Writer Strike started last month.
“We would like to return to work with our writers,” said Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert in a joint statement. “If we cannot, we would like to express our ambivalence, but without our writers we are unable to express something as nuanced as ambivalence.”
Meanwhile, NBC’s The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Late Night with Conan O’Brien, ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live and CBS’ Late Show with David Letterman and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson will all be returning to air on January 2 without their writers.
FYI, my head writer left years ago…
