A few weeks back I told Paul that I would get a blog post up and let all of you know about his new Facebook fan page.  Well, I have to apologize to him and you for the delay.  Things have been really busy for me and I’m just now getting it done.  

Not long ago, I scoured through the I-Man pictures that I’ve collected over the years and sent a whole bunch of them to him for his new Facebook fan page.  However, I only sent him pictures that he was in.  Hey, after all this is his fan page.  But you’ll also see plenty of the rest of the cast in those pics.    

The fan page is run by a friend of his.  So, if you’re a Facebook user, or if you want to be, go join Paul’s new Facebook fan page and show your support.  Check it out!

“Idiocracy” Comes to DVD

This post was actually supposed to be up on Tuesday but I’ve been waylaid by the flu and am only now starting to feel well enough to spend more than a few minutes at my computer.  If I could only get my coworkers to stop coming to work sick and sharing their germs with everyone.  That kind of generosity I could do without.  You know what I mean?

Anyway, I wanted to let everyone know that as of Tuesday, January 9, Mike McCafferty’s film, Idiocracy, is now available for purchase on DVD. 

Idiocracy stars Luke Wilson as Army Private Joe Bowers, an “average American” who has been put in a deep-freeze hibernation experiment as part of a top-secret Army program. Things go wrong and Bowers doesn’t wake up for 500 years. However, America has changed for the worse, becoming so dumbed-down that Bowers is now the smartest person in the world.

There has been all kinds of speculation about why this film has received so little support from the studio.  It took two years for this film to get released, and then it only got a very limited release in seven cities with virtually no marketing, no advertising, and no official website.  Needless to say, some fans have been unhappy with the way this film has been handled. 

So if this film wasn’t released in your area and you’ve been waiting to see it, you don’t have to wait any longer.  DVDs are now available at
