SoCal at it's best.

OK, listen: this song is a little corny and Lil Rob's rapping is competent at best... but I love this song. It makes me wish I still had my my ElCo so I could drive around with the windows down and the stereo pumped. (Of course, I once got a $250 ticket for just that, so maybe I'd be careful.)

After a projector malfunction at the premier of "Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan," Borat took part in an impromptu Q&A on stage at the theater.

I'm not really the type to get excited about movies. But I am so fricking excited about this movie. Jiminy Christmas am I excited.

Elton Brand + Werner Herzog = A movie??

| 0 comments
This is the face Elton Brand made after Antawn Jamison admitted he had never seen "Little Dieter Learns to Fly"

Uhm, so apparently, one of the two producers of the upcoming Werner Herzog Vietnam drama "Rescue Dawn" is Elton Brand. Of the Los Angeles Clippers.

As a production, "Rescue Dawn" had a shaky start, according to its rookie producers, nightclub owner Steve Marlton, and Elton Brand, of the NBA's Los Angeles Clippers, Initially, they had planned to invest $2 million of the then-$11 million budget, but after filming began in Thailand all of the other investors dropped out, leaving them holding the bag.

"We liquidated properties, made bridge loans and made personal sacrifices," Marlton said.

I think NBA players probably do the coolest stuff outside of their sport. Brand has a ways to go before he can top Manute Bol's work with refugees in the Sudan (or Bol's reputed lion-killing), but producing a Werner Herzog movie's right up there with Adonal Foyle's pro-democracy NGO.
