Unyielding Commissioning Shut In

I know what I'm doing for the next eight weeks. Roger Ebert has archived all of his television reviews, 31 years worth. Now you can watch any of them - whether they are with Gene Siskel or Richard Roeper. That's right. You can wonder in amazement as Siskel blasphemously pans The Big Lebowski or The Silence of the Lambs. See them justifiably gush over Pulp Fiction or Hoop Dreams. Revel in their astonishment after being forced to sit through Jaws: The Revenge. As an added bonus, you can see how Ebert's weight and hair has changed over the years, not to mention Siskel's sweatervests. Seriously, I could watch these all day. One of my friends should check on me to make sure I'm eating and leaving the house every so often.

Lolla forecast. It's gonna be hot, people. But not as bad as last year, and certainly nothing like the year before when we managed 108. High 80s with a chance of rain on both Saturday and Sunday. Wear sunscreen, and bring water. You're allowed 2 liters of water as long as they're unopened.

Hot song? Last year, Crazy was the most oft-played tune at the festival. Covered by both Mates of State and The Raconteurs and of course played by Gnarls Barkley, fans couldn't get enough of it. Here's The Racs' performance:

Will there be a big cover this year? If so, I'm guessing it's Justin Timberlake, but we'll have to see...
