  1. OJ had family and other visitors sign NDAs and executor of his estate says he will work to prevent a payout of a $33.5 million judgment awarded to the families of Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman!

  2. Chechnya is banning music that's too fast or slow

    "Musical, vocal and choreographic" works will be limited to a tempo of 80 to 116 beats per minute (BPM) to "conform to the Chechen mentality and sense of rhythm," said Dadayev, according to the Russian state-run news agency TASS.

    "Borrowing musical culture from other peoples is inadmissible," Dadayev said, per a translation by The Guardian. "We must bring to the people and to the future of our children the cultural heritage of the Chechen people. This includes the entire spectrum of moral and ethical standards of life for Chechens."

    I'm not sure Quaid was the right guy for that film. He's done some good work, but I didn't find him convincing in that role. 

    Probably should have cast his brother Randy, who has experience with aliens.

  4. Also Sadat, though honestly, I'm still thinking of Jacqueline Bisset.

    EDIT: Just going through his IMDB page... Bonanza, Alias Smith and Jones (a Head-Case favorite!), Mod Squad, Love American Style, Good Times, Six Million Dollar Man, Police Story, Roots, etc. Man, he was everywhere.

    RIP Richard Serra. Love his work. I was very sad when they removed his sculpture from SFMOMA in the room that they had built around it specially. 

    Definitely relate. At least the biggie, Sequence, is still close as it moved from Palo Alto (Stanford's Cantor Center) to SFMOMA and then back to Palo Alto. Somewhere I have a photo of young Esmé, with wide eyes, getting lost in the light & shadows.
