Another sleepless night due to this stupid cold. Up all night hacking. Finally gave up and again turned on the TV but found something to watch this time. HBO has a new documentary on the OSU/Michigan rivalry. Good stuff.
Is there anything more American than rooting for someone successful to fail? I relish watching the fall of Tom Cruise. I used to like the guy. Thought Rain Man was a great flick. Thought he was brilliant in Born on the Fourth of July and Magnolia. I think Losin' It is the most underrated teen sex comedy of all time. I don't know if I've ever watched someone fall further faster than Tiny Tom. I think the public backlash against him can be pinpointed on three events: The Trapped in the Closet episode of South Park, the rumored pissing contest he got into with Paramount over another episode of South Park that skewered Scientology and then the epic, "you're glib Matt" battle with Matt Lauer on the Today show. While Tommy Boy's latest flick is about to move into 2nd run theaters after only being out 3 weeks, it looks like his next flick also appears to be a stinker:http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/21794678/
