Writers Move From Effete Pirate to Powder Blue Suited Cowboy

The Pirates of the Caribbean writers will whomp up a Lone Ranger movie for Jerry Bruckheimer.

How many things can you blow up in the Old West? Bruckheimer will find a way.

You know who writes a good Lone Ranger? Joe R. Lansdale. Too bad they didn't ask us. Now it's likely the movie will be like Hot Teen Lone Ranger, which was heap bad, kemosabe.

Dream A Little Dream of Suresh

So do you like the Heroes? Have you thought to yourself, "I want a website that's an in-character advertisement for the guy who does the dorky voiceovers. Then Suresh's Dream Study is for you.

Lost Toes

On Lost, in one episode they found a giant four-toed statue. Now writer Damon Lindelof says ABC thought it was too weird.

That is correct. The channel that ran a show with Urkel for 27 years thought this was too weird.

Gandalf Means Wheeee!

Ian Mckellen said on his website McKellen.com that Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh want him to be Gandalf in The Hobbit.. He says Guillermo del Toro has not alled him yet, "but I am keeping my diary free for 2009!"

Now the ravening hordes have to call off the Mckellen Not Gandalf Riots we planned. Dang! Now what are we going to freak out about? Surely something crazy as hell will happen soon.

Joe Crowe is wearing a cowboy hat and a mask right now.
