5/7     Mummy Returns - typical hollywood cookie-cutter trash.
        \_ Did you pay $7 at a theater or did you d/l it? If you d/l'ed
           did it suck bad enough that you feel the time spend getting
           it could have been used to get a better movie?
        \_ Mmm, cookie-cutter trash.  Is hollywood trash really that much
           worse than foreign cinema sentimentalism?  Sometimes, between
           watching some artsy french film (in fuzzy black & white) dealing
           with the effects of losing a cat, and watching a certified
           brainless hollywood trash film with all the standard jokes, I'd
           rather go with the latter.  Unless the cat happen to belong to
           militant prostitute lesbians on a mass murder binge, of course.
           \_ that's almost funny enough for me to reconsider. hollywood's
              efx laden eye-candy are only midly interesting and
              overpaid stars are utterly disgusting. one day a bomb will
              go off in teh academy awards and wipe the slate clean
              \_ Upon reconsideration, I realized that I'd rather see the
                 lost cat film afterall.  But the point is, Hollywood trash
                        \_ less artsy, more fartsy!
                 has its place--in the gutters of society, maybe, but some
                 people enjoy it.  For that matter, so do Hollywood celebrity.
                 Everyone idolizes _something_.  It may not be a blond
                 bombshell with fake boobs, but it might as well be.  I mean,
                 are people who idolize Nietzsche that much better than people
                 who idolize Britney Spears?  If you think so, you might as
                 well be a nazi.
                 \_ This is intellectual relativism.  Nietzsche is a person,
                    with a mind.  Britney Spears is a vagina + marketing.
                    You are a troll + too much time on your hands.
           never seen before. The Mummy Returns provided most of that.
                    \_ Regardless, britney is hot, Nietzsche, still dead.
                       \_ what about us necrophiliacs?
                    \_ Britney is in the Mummy Returns?
                 \_ "everyone idolizes something" != "for each thing, there
                    is someone who idolizes it"
        \_ There's just as much junk in the foreign film / Cannes / independent
           market. It's just not enough people have seen those to know there's
           crap there too. I'm not really trying to defend Hollywood, but can
           it really be all that bad when they give me exactly what I want? I
           go to theaters to escape reality, to have fun, to see stuff I've
           never seen before. The Mummy Returns provided most of that. After
           spending 50-60 hours the past week overloading my brain with C++
           at work, do I really want to continue using my brain to discover
           the meaning of life from rotting cheese from some overemoting actor?
           No. I just wanna turn off my brain and enjoy over-the-top action
           galore.
           \_ After loading my brain for 50 - 60 hours, I would go mountain
              biking.  The problem with many Hollywood movies is that they
              are no longer "fun" and "never seen before".  However I did
              liked Mummy, so I am going to give Mummy II a try.  Maybe it's
              because I have always liked this Egypt/Archaeologist/Raider's
              of The Lost Ark genre.  Yes, I hate boring and meaningless art
              films too.  They should be meaningful and preferably
              entertaining too.  I am not as interested in style without
              content.

              without content.  Pure style has its place but it's not for
              me.
        \_ I was disappointed with Mummy Returns as well.  Hopefully the 3rd
           installment will be much better (like the Indiana Jones trilogy).
           Have you seen Deep Rising?  That's another film my Stephen Sommers
           that I really enjoy, it's pretty much your ultimate big-budget
           B movie.

        I am an especially unattractive person, and all my life I've had to
        deal with people who hate me just because they don't like the way I
        look. How can I free myself from the hatred I feel for these people?

        -- Ray Mullen from Swisher, IA

        Unfortunately, there's little you can do to let go of such a justified
        resentment. Electroshock may help you to forget, and thus forgive, but
        it may also have unintended side effects, like death. Have you thought
        of starting an ugly persons support group? It might give you a sense of
        community you've been missing all your life, though I imagine the
        meetings would be pretty hard to stomach.
        \_ Who's Ray Mullen?

        Commonwealth Energy Corp.) as the electric service provider?  I'm
        thinking about signing up to get some green power.  Thx.  -- yuen
        \_ We've had Commonwealth for over a year. We haven't had any problems
           with them. As far as I know they haven't dropped us yet but
           I don't know if they're taking anyone new.
           \_ Thanks.  I'll call them to find out.  -- yuen
        \_ I thought all the third party providers bailed on CA?
           \_ I don't know.  The web site only says they're currently not
              taking any new customers in the San Diego area.
              http://www.powersavers.com/power_markets/california.html  -- yuen
              \_ I read that all the 3rd party power providers dumped their
                 customers back on pg&e and the SD power co (whatever its
                 called) and gave up on the entire state.  Not only are they

                 not taking new customers, I don't think they have any old
                 ones in CA anymore either.
                  \_ Then you read wrong.  We still get our monthly power
                     bills from Enron (which of course show that PG&E pays
                     Enron about twice what we do thanks to CA's fucked up
                     rules)
                     \_ Big deal. So there's still one left.
                        The others are gone.
                        \_ No, there are many left.  You're just wrong.
                        The answer to the whole thing is more nuclear plants,
                        ditch the MTBE gas which is poisoning the water
                        permanently instead of the air temporarily and costs
                        more, and get rid of all the resource using
                        hypocritical tree hugger extremists.
                        \_ You do realize that, despite your semi-lucid rant,
                           your previous answer was still wrong, yes?

                              adding your own I would give you a real reply.
                              But since you seem more interested in "winning"
                              a motd debate which isn't going to be here by
                              tomorrow and you didn't actually say anything
                              beyond "you're wrong" without providing any
                              reasoning, I'm happy to leave it as it is.  It's
                              very hard to discuss anything with someone who
                              falls back on third grader "I'm right and you're
                              wrong cuz I said so!" line of reasoning.  You can
                              be "winner" if it makes you feel good.
                              \_ 1) I didn't edit your comments
                                 2) The comment you're replying to wasn't the

5/8     Berkeley Critical Mass this Friday, downtown Berkeley BART
        gather 5:30 PM to depart after 6 PM. Sound system, water
        pistols, movies after. http://guest.xinet.com/bike/couch
        \_ And please drink and drive your SUVs.
                \_ And bring out your guns.
        \_ puleeze. more underpowered twinks who will get themselves
           killed thinking they can mix in with regular traffic
          \_ they also bitch and cry when their handle bars get stuck
             on someone's mirror. only an idiot and careless biker
             gets that close to a car.
        \_ while waiting on a red light on Market St. in SF couple of weeks
           ago, a woman  tried to squeeze between my car and the sidewalk. She
           ended up toppling over as her bike hit the sidewalk. I tried damn
           hard not to laugh, but was quite unsuccessful. Oh, and it's not
           like she couldn't have ridden her bike on the sidewalk... there were
           hardly any pedestrians and the sidewalk's 20 feet wide.
           \_ so if you ride on the sidewalk, you get a ticket.
              if you ride between cars, you die.
              if you ride your bike in traffic and take up the whole
              lane, you get harassed.
              \_ Cyclists should do what motorists do. If you see a bunch of
                 cars behind you waiting to pass you, pull over to the side
                 and let them pass. For the most part, this is convention on
                 the highways and should work for cyclists as well.
           \_ How typical, a motorist advocating that cyclists break the law.
              \_ They do anyway without any help.
                 \_ Like not stopping for pedestrians at stop signs (and even
                    red lights) while whining about car drivers not stopping
                    for them.
                    \_ Like the 4 cars that sped through red lights just
                       this morning on my walk from bart to work.
                        \_ yeah, but bicyles don't weight 2 tons, cars do..
                          all the more reason to respect their power even if
                         there are morons behind it.
                         \_ Some cyclists are fucking stupid (crossing against
                            a red light, etc), but this is hardly the
                            behavior most cyclists have.
              \_ I'm saying she should've ridden the sidewalk for her own good.
                 Fine by me if she wants to risk hurting herself. In fact, I'm
                 glad she fell on her sorry ass.  If she insists on sharing the
                 road, she could've waited like all the other motorists instead
                 of squeezing through.
                 \_ I agree, and tend to take the whole lane when I'm
                    riding on Market.  Which is really the right thing
                    to do. --dpassage
                 \_ the right answer is 1) stay the hell off the sidewalk and
                    2) obey the rules of the road (such as the CVC) when riding
                    and if you can't be bothered to do either, suck it. --jon
