I noticed that the comments have dropped off quite a bit on my blogs concerning 'Heroes'. So, first and foremost, I would like a show of hands (er comments) How many of you are still watching 'Heroes'? A simple "I'm not" or "I am" will do.

The sad thing is, is that I am seriously considering dropping the show myself. I would like to think that it is because of my own taste, and not because of the Anti-Heroes Bandwagon, that seems to be pulled by Entertainment Weekly.

Darren Lynn Bousman

Darren Lynn Bousman has had quite the unique career trajectory. His first three films, all part of the "Saw" franchise, opened at #1. After becoming the first director in Hollywood history to achieve that feat, he moved on to a project long dear to his heart, "Repo! The Genetic Opera". The self described "Rock Opera" opened on a limited basis Friday, November 7th. Starting November 10th he is embarking on a 7 city tour to promote the film, and here's what happened when we sat down with him recently to discuss the special slate of screenings.

What I don't respect is personal attacks. I guess that's the thing that kind of took me by surprise.

So when does your Repo! tour start?

It starts November 10th, and we go till November 17th. One city every night, one showing.

I know this has been a real passion project for you. How long has the idea been around?

"Vampire Killers" is an online mini-series about sexy lady vampires who have a penchant for making out with each other. They had me at hello.

Jessica Alba set to play prostitute in "The Killer Inside Me". This is way too much sexy-news for me on a Monday morning.

The director of "Harold and Kumar Go to Whitecastle" to direct zombie film called "Corporate Zombie Killers". As long as a stoned Asian guy rides a cheetah at some point, I'm in.

In Real People News: 

This is a new one. Apparently there is a certain subset of people out there who feel that they are actually amputees, and usually go to drastic measures to ensure they fulfill their life's destiny. Hmmm, guess you learn something new every day.

The Lemmings are dying! And while I'm on the subject, what the hell does a Lemming do anyways? Well, I guess we're about to find out.

On this day in history:
