So Michael Moore’s movie isn’t selling in the US

Posted: October 5, 2009 by datechguy in oddities

That’s not where it’s designed to sell. It will do a fair amount of business overseas.

Its primary job is to generate buzz to keep him on the personal gravy train, to keep him invited here there and everywhere.

Moore is set and he knows he is set, so he makes the movies he wants to make. There’s nothing wrong with that, after all that is Capitalism for you.

You don’t keep it as a pet.

Authorities in northeastern Pennsylvania say a woman was killed by her pet black bear as she cleaned its cage.

State police say 37-year-old Kelly Ann Walz was mauled to death Sunday evening by the 350-pound bear.

I’ll say it again we need more Sgt. Garcia and less Pam Anderson on this stuff.

Yes there was a time when Disney said it was OK to shoot a bear.

Hey I LIKE Zorro so I’ll push it when I can.

They cashed out retirement funds to build their business during the 2008 presidential campaign. Now they have 3,000 jack-in-the-boxes with smiling Barack Obama puppets inside — all sitting in a California warehouse, waiting to be sprung open for $29.95 apiece.

For Barack-in-the-Box creator Heather Courtney and her husband, David Manzo, the Obamamania that drove sales so fast they could barely keep up during the inauguration is over now. Sales have slowed to a “sporadic drizzle,” the 36-year-old artist said, in part because the president just isn’t as popular.

And that’s just one product. In a few years flea markets will be flooded with junk like this.

I have no idea what you just said, but the “million hits” headline drew me in, almost as quickly as your pictures of pretty girls.

Sometime early yesterday morning, I received my one millionth visit. Eleven months and two weeks after my first post on October 12, 2008.
