JOHN CLEESE is performing at his partially-free, partially-subscription web site.

FRANKLY, SCARLETT, Jared just doesn't give a damn.

THIS JUST IN: Prince Charles's household is "hierarchical and elitist," according to a former personal assistant.

DESIGN OBSERVER: raves about the look(s) of The Incredibles. The family livies in "a kind of extraordinary dystopia, at once a celebration and an exaggeration of Eames-era modernism... Yet as the pace quickens and the action builds, the design does too. The villain's lair is " Fritz Lang‘s Metropolis meets Frank Lloyd Wright’s Imperial Hotel in Japan." And Edna Mode's design center is descibed thusly: " from the Miesian lobby to the Bulthaup-inspired industrial kitchen (and let's not forget the George Nelson benches) it’s an aesthetic travesty: design beyond reach."

SLATE has a nice piece asking "How Often is Altlantis Discovered?"

ON THE PITCHFORK: GANG OF FOUR REUNION! UPDATE: CREAM REUNION!

HEY! I look much less like Tom Cruise now, thanks to my co-clerk Debbie and her digital camera. And special thanks to Adobe Photoshop.

THE CLINTON LIBRARY OPENS THURSDAY, so the Clintonites are having a big party Wednesday night at... Sticky Fingerz, which seems oddly appropriate, though I suspect Bill should avoid most of the menu for health reasons.  The library opening has also inspired an Arkansas version of "Take Your Kid to Work Day."

BILLY BRAGG rewrites a 1918 hymn paying tribute to the millions who died in the First World War as a politically-correct ode to socialism.  IMHO, BB does better when he adds a dash of humor, as o­n "The Great Leap Forward."

KIM JONG IL: Portraits of the North Korean dictator have disappeared from some public buildings in Pyongyang.  I have a theory, but I can't tell you wihout spoiling the end of Team America: World Police.

CONDI RICE: Has she heard about this?

DAVID LEE ROTH  is moonlighting as a paramedic in NYC.

VIBE AWARDS MARRED BY STABBING, MELEE: "Video footage taken during the ceremony shows several people shoving each other, fists flying and chairs being thrown around the room as people hurried for the exits."  Again, oddly appropriate, but do Dre and Snoop really want to come off looking like The Jerry Springer Show? Breathing a sigh of relief: the addled Anna Nicole Smith.

ABC apologizes for the racy intro to Monday Night Football, which featured Nicollette Sheridan of Desperate Housewives clad in a towel... for part of the intro.  The NFL issues an "apology" which blames ABC, though Terrell Owens is not a desperate housewife.

GOING POSTAL: Stamps for the holiday that must not be named.

NOT MY KIND OF WILD TURKEY:  Jake is disrupting traffic in Whittier, Iowa.

FORGOT TO MENTION: Sarah Vowell is one of the Incredibles.

ANOTHER R. KELLY HOME VIDEO becomes the subject of an extortion plot against NY Yankees outfielder Gary Sheffield and his wife, DeLeon.  News accounts note that the video showing DeLeon with Kelly and another woman was shot ten years ago.  News accounts generally do not note that DeLeon has been a gospel singer since the age of three, which is another reason she would be a blackmail target.

LONG COMPUTER USE may be linked to eye disease, so you should skip the rest of this.

LOCAL PRIDE: A Chicago "man" sues his neighbor for breaking up his marriage.  Would it surprise you to learn that this 44 year-old lives in the basement of his mother's Southwest Side home?

THE LADYKILLERS: Reading this story, I could not help but think of the remake (although the original is superior).

ACTION NEWS APTLY NAMED: Local news sweeps stunts hit a new low as WOIO's Sharon Reed takes part in a mass nude photograph.

NO WONDER SIX FEET UNDER IS GOING UNDER!

KURT COBAIN'S HALLUCINATORY RAMBLINGS can be yours for a mere 12- 14 thousand bucks!

LADIES: Keep your men out of the Apple store.

BOB DYLAN has threatened to sue the producers of a movie about tragic Andy Warhol protégé Edie Sedgwick, because the script has him in a mad affair with drug victim Sedgwick.

LAist interviews Salon's TV columnist, Heather Havrilesky. I always preferred her early work for Suck.com, but there's a bit of that feel at her Rabbit Blog, which also has a work-unsafe title.

SEVENTEEN
magazine has gotten religion.

WILLIAM SAFIRE will semi-retire from the New York Times in January 2005, but will still be writing about language for Sundays.

VARIETY gadfly Peter Bart addresses Red vs. Blue State media with a pun beneath even me:"The o­nly distinction between Red and Blue is this: While porn-watchers o­n the East and West Coasts have switched to DVDs, the heartland still covets its VHS format. That distinction, perhaps, defines the truly rigid conservative."

QUEER EYE FOR THE ANCHORGUY: CBS has ordered a makeover for Dan Rather.  But that won't stop rather from spouting bizzare similes that sound like Andy Griffith channeling Hunter S. Thompson.

DONOVAN EXCITED: Researcher claims to have found ruins of Atlantis.

PUBLISHER of California's Anderson Valley Advertiser sells it for what he originally paid, moves to Eugene, Oregon to avoid "the beautiful people."

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT: How To Tell If Your Prostitute Is An Extraterrestrial.

MORE POWERFUL THAN A LOCOMOTIVE: The Incredibles beats The Polar Express by a two-to-one margin. Dreamworks execs must be asking themselves why they didn't schedule the train's departure for closer to Thanksgiving.

WASHINGTON STATE: When it comes to vote-counting, is Washington the new Florida?

EPA BACKS NANOTECH SAFETY RESEARCH: Certainly, Jon Pratt would no better than I whether this is scientifically necessary. Either way, it's probably politically necessary.

BILL & HILLARY CLINTON are battling behind the scenes to install longtime political operative Harold Ickes as the new chairman of the Democratic National Committee. "This is the first test of whether the Clintons can keep their grip on the party," said one Democrat.

McDONALDS IN JAPAN: I'm Lovin' It.

PRETTY GIRLS DON'T RIDE THE SUBWAY?

RED BANK, TENNESSEE: The business owner charged with spanking two women employees has been hospitalized after a possible suicide attempt.

NORWAY'S COAST PARTY proposes outlawing bestiality after the Norwegian Federation for Animal Protection gets a phone call from a young girl seeking a legal opinion.

WHAT HAPPENED TO STEVE BUSCEMI'S PARTNER IN FARGO really happened to Miguel Marquez in San Jose

ROCHESTER, NH: A mother and her boyfriend were arrested and her three children put into state custody after she threatened to sacrifice at least one of the children inside a Church.

ROBODUMP: Kevin Kelm is a mad scientist.

THE INCREDIBLES: It seems like a big hit, but its PG rating may have kept it from living up to Wall Street's lofty expectations. Since I didn't mention it in my review, I'll note that it's a little scarier than past Pixar flicks, but only really little kids will be too scared. One of my co-workers took her two and four year olds -- they were a little scared, but not too scared. The second weekend will tell the tale here; I'm waiting until next week to see The Polar Express as a show of support for The Incredibles.

YOU'RE FIRED, but you can still ask out Trump's hottie receptionist.

JON PRATT lives near DC, so I thought I would note that he can get traffic cam images on a cellphone.

THE VICE-PRESIDENT was aptly named, apparently.

AND WHY NOT POST A COMIC?

PUTTIN' ON THE RITZ? Donald Trump is thinking about buying the Ritz Hotel in Paris for his fiancee, Melania Knauss. Gaudy, and it will never fit on her finger, Don.

SLATE reports on a New York Times memo regarding the use of anonymous sources, which Slate got from...

TOM BROKAW thinks blogs are "big" and "a fixed part of the universe." Golly, it seems like it was just a few weeks ago that Brokaw was accusing them of waging political jihad.

U2 is inducted into the UK Music Hall of Fame. Bono's reaction? "I want to go and kill myself now."

DOES SIZE MATTER in the magazine world?

QOTD: "To be a newspaper reporter, you need two things: You need to know how to type. And you need a job at a newspaper."

THE SMOKING GUN: Bill Maher Hit With Palimony Suit; Ex accuses HBO star of physical abuse, "degrading racial comments." I thought he was done with Politically Incorrect.

PHIL SPECTOR: Not only is he facing a murder rap, the L.A. D.A. argues that the release of grand jury testimony wouldn't bias potential jurors against the rock innovator on account of nobody remembers who he is anyway. Ouch.

MORE BUZZ THAT BRITNEY SPEARS IS PREGNANT. If you have an office pool running, I'd bet on it being a boy named Damien.

VETERANS DAY: Armed Liberal salutes the troops at Winds Of Change; The Smithsonian Museum of American History opens The Price of Freedon: Americans at War.

Also airing tonight: Last Letters Home, a documentary in which people who've lost a son, daughter, sibling or spouse in Iraq remember their loved ones and read from their letters home. It's on HBO, but most cable systems will be offering it for free.

FUN WITH LIGHTERS: How to modify an ordinary cigarette lighter to produce a giant ball of flaming molten death.


BARBARA BUSH (the younger): Friend Of Will?
