I SURRENDERED! I NOW HAVE A MYSPACE PAGE!!! 


After what seemed like years, I now have a myspace page. I have lots of folks asking me if I have one, so I created my own space on myspace.

It's still a work-in-progress, of course, but here it is.

"BEOWULF" DRINKING GAME!!! 


Okay, after all these Oscar posts, let's drink!

Here's what I propose for a fun, drinking game when "Beowulf" comes to DVD. And it involves his over-delivery of the line, "I AM BEOWULF."

1) Gather around with your friends, and bring your favorite alcohol of choice. Imbibe, imbibe!

2) Watch the movie.

3) Then, drink a shot every time you hear Beowulf say, "I AM BEOWULF."

I guarantee you'll be as drunk as Beowulf and his party-heart men when the film ends.

Just don't let Angelina Jolie's crazy momma character and her creature of a son, Grendel, come to your party!
