Rest In Peace

I finally sold my antique car and bought a newer used one. It took the kid I sold it to about a month to kill it.

my question is: how can this new movie called 'crash' come out now, when there was already a movie with the same title in the 90's, directed by david cronenberg? granted, the former release did really suck - that was the one about how fun it is to get into a car accident while have sex. but still, don't you think i'd get in trouble if i came out with a new movie and titled it 'basic instinct?'

DOH! Your car! I would hate to see the old Topaz totaled like this.

And I agree with Eli, what the heck? Why would you want people to conjure the imagery of sex while severely injured while you are trying to promote your film about subtle racism? Weird.

Eli, all I know is that when the show Arrested Development came out, the band Arrested Development tried suing the show. It didn't work b/c the judge agreed with the show: people would think of the commonplace expression and psychological condition before they'd think about a hip-hop band from the early 90s. This really pertains more to trademark, so I don't know if this helps with the movie title. It could be they were put out by the same studio? It could be they got permission from the first movie?

ouch. to do that much damage to an eighties Volvo must have taken some real skill and expertise. she was a good vehicle and will be missed.

on a completely different note, i want to be the first to log this presumption into the blogosphere. i’m taking bets that the alleged mishandling of the Koran by prison guards and interrogators at Guantanamo Bay is the convenient excuse the State Dept. has been looking for to finally close the prison down. if H. Karzai is the good little puppet Pres. he’s supposed to be, by the end of summer he’ll officially “demand” that Gitmo prisoners be either given the chance to face trial or be transferred to maximum security institutions in their own countries.

b.t.w. eli, when i first heard about the NEW movie Crash, i thought it was a remake of the 90s shit-flick, too.
