Man To Fly With Rocket Pack, Probably Get Self Drowned and/Or Blown Up
A pilot will strap an 8-foot glider on his back and power it with model airplane engines. Then he will jump out of a plane and fly across the English Channel. This excellent plan
to hurt himself will happen September 24 or 25, and "Jetman Live" will be filmed by the National Geographic Channel.
Yves Rossy will have parachutes, and he says, "I want to survive. I will not do anything stupid." Besides strap an 8-foot glider on his back and power it with model airplane engines.
It's fun when people do crazy things, unless they land on you.
True Blood Not Canceled
Finally! A show with nudity on HBO! I thought they forgot. HBO renewed True Blood
even though it's only been on twice at this writing. Good for you, HBO. That's one less hour you have to show movies we rented three years ago, and Real Sex
, which should actually be called Really Gross Sex
Mass Effect Movie To Be Made By Marvel Movie Guy
Avi Arad, the Marvel movie producer, is set to make Mass Effect
">Mass Effect, about a video game that is about fighting, no matter what the story on the back of the box says. Like at all video game movies, its fans will go see it, and have to not do anything.
"This doesn't give me sore thumbs at all!", they'll say, and get all fidgety. Thanks for making us sit and wait, movie guys! It's like the longest cutscene ever!
Robert Sawyer Book TV Show Not On HBO
Meanwhile, ABC picked up a show HBO refused: Flash Forward
based on the Robert Sawyer
book. David Goyer, writer of Dark Knight
and Brannon Braga, survivor of Star Trek Enterprise
, are whomping it up. It's about when everyone on Earth gets to see where they'll be in 20 years, and they all freak out. So it's like the flash-forwards on Lost
except the characters get to see them, too.
Warehouse 13 About Stuff
has Bianca from Dresden Files
, Joanne Kelly, as a government agent who works at a secret place where they keep supernatural stuff, gadgets, and artifacts for the government. It's like that awesome place in Indiana Jones
, or the big place with filing cabinets on The X-Files
or outside next to the front door on Sanford and Son.
