the f-14 tomcat is my personal fave

let’s make a TRADE!! (U-WIRE) CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — David Mamet, the writer and director of “Heist,” is a genius. He made a crappy movie with a minimum amount of thought and effort and used this shameless vehicle to heist seven dollars out of my pocket and two hours from my life.

So I saw Heist last night with Mikey and Sig. It was worth it to see the exceptionally pretty trailer for Vanilla Sky again. God, it is pretty. And the flash website is also very pretty. Pretty pretty! Pretty people! Pretty images! Pretty text! The only thing that isn’t so pretty is Penelope Cruz’s crazy overbite, but I’ll get over it. She’s on top, after all. She’s the Alpha Overbite.

Also, The Royal Tenenbaums comes out on December 14th. That website is much better than anything else. Probably ever. Much better than work, anyways, a lot of which I haven’t been doing because of this. Oh my god is this movie going to be good.

And, um, in other news….

ALL THIS SET SHOULD BE … AND NOTHING THAT IT SHOULDN’T

ENDURING FREEDOM PICTURE CARDS presents the New War on Terrorism in a format that children understand. Not included are the disturbing images shown repeatedly on national newscasts. Instead, Topps has chosen to focus on America’s strengths -its elected leaders, the security of its military, its worldwide support…and the courage and unity of its people.

Topps, the beloved Will Clark-producing (I SO HAVE HIS ROOKIE!) trading card company of my youth, is honest-to-effing-God selling “Operation Enduring Freedom” trading cards. I saw it, but I didn’t believe it. But I should of. But. But.

In order to start yer collecting, you need this. You may find this amazingly boring, but I just spent a good chunk of the afternoon going through this list to find my FAVORITE AMERICA FREAKS OUT CIA AND DOD PIN-UP BOYS! Harry Shelton, meee-OWW! He’s got great eyes. But Ari Fleischer, he’s COMPLICATED. So I kinda like him too. OMG.

I’ve heard sept. 11 made this a whole new America. I’m glad to see “they” were wrong. We will survive. We will remain strong. We will….market the hell out of anything.

So here’s the thing- I am ALL ABOUT starting an O-M trading ring for these suckas. You all know my feelings on trading cards in general, they kick serious ass.
