Sunday Links Roundup

OK, so the Friday round of links didn’t quite make it out on time. My computer was still in a state of disrepair. Sorry about that. Better late than never, though:

1. Remember last week’s item about Jackie Chan playing Cato in THE PINK PANTHER? Sadly, MGM has officially denied the story. Dang.

2. There are people out there who like to bounce balls. Hundreds of balls. Then they record it and post it on their web site. They’re call the Gravity and Chaos Club, and I’m sure there’s a valid scientific reason for their existence. I just think the videos are cool. Check them out.

3. They’re still setting records for solving the Rubik’s Cube in the fastest possible time.

4. And a new generation has discovered Rubik’s Amazing Cube.

5. The more I read about her, the more I like Mandy Moore. I picked up the album. It’s OK. But I love her attitude. (Please note that the headline to this story misspells the word “eke,” as any crossword puzzle solver could tell you.)

    I have to agree with you on this one. I’m not particularly fond of her sound. But at least she has not gone the way of Britina Speargulara. Jessica Simson has and that is frustrating. Especially as she does so because she’s married. Big whoop. I’m married and don’t parade my sexuality around for all to see/hear. High praise to Mandy for being boring. She’s also not a bad actress.

    I’m a big Mandy Moore fan, actually. I didn’t care for her first two albums at all, as I didn’t care for that sound. But I’m very interested in “Coverage,” and I find her apparent straightforwardness very refreshing. And as Scott said, she’s a better actress than you might think – she was completely unglamorous in “A Walk to Remember,” a movie I expected to loathe, but instead loved and still talk about.

    And while I simply love Christina Aguilera’s voice – I think she has amazing talent – I find her continual re-exploitation of herself as nothing but a sexpot disheartening. She has real talent, she shouldn’t let that get lost in all the navel-baring and “dirrrty” videos.

    Which again, is why I like Mandy Moore. :)

    Back in the day I could solve the Rubik’s cube in less than 60 seconds. I believe my fastest time was 54 seconds. Wheeeeeeeeeeee.
