In addition, the Watchmen movie debacle is settled between Warner Bros. and Fox, giving Justin Yu an early birthday present. Speaking of which, Wilson Tang will be joining the soon-to-be 25-year-old Mr. Yu for an Asian karaoke lovefest. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Rickrolls the Interwebs about a year and a half way too late, but nice try. Barack Obama wants Will Smith to play him in the movie version of Obama's life. Can't wait to hear Will Smith's classic catchlines. In some sad news, Circuit City liquidates, and 30,000 people lose their jobs. I guess we're kind of just stuck with the cats at Best Buy for now. Also, we chat about the movies coming out this weekend. Sweet Lou is excited about Paul Blart: Mall Cop, while Justin Yu waxes poetic about the semantics between Hotel for Dogs or Dog Hotel. Wilson can't wait to catch Clint Eastwood's latest film, Gran Torino. Jeff plans to stay in and finally watch Wall-E.

Finally, Mr. Tang clarifies that in the Great State of Florida, one does not have to back away from a life-threatening situation in order to use a firearm in self-defense. Check this link out and be frightened.

One more thing: no show on Monday in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.--get your butt to DC!
