disabled: JJ Abrams’ Star Trek (2009)- The Gag Reel

Hope everyone enjoyed it before the youtube police got to it, I was thinking it was one of those official unofficial leaks to hype the Nov DVD release…lol

you may still be able to watch an embedded copy at joblo per scifiwire:

A bootleg gag reel from J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek movie, which is presumably on the upcoming DVD/Blu-ray, has found its way onto the Internet, and before Paramount got it pulled from YouTube, it wound up on JoBlo.com.

The reel of outtakes from Abrams’ hit movie contains the usual blown lines, some impolite language, joshing around on set, some dancing, some funny faces, the usual. The Star Trek DVD/Blu-ray drops on Nov. 1

More proof life is not fair: FOX keeps Dollhouse, talks Season 3 and uses DVR ratings as the reason.. after cancelling TSCC which had better DVR ratings …

Update: Notice that FOX is using Summer Glau to draw viewers to Dollhouse a full 3 WEEKS BEFORE her episodes air!! (Baseball yeah but more due to bad ratings IMO)You know what would draw even more viewers? TSCC!!!! Terminator was too damned dark for that early hour. They shouldve shxt canned Dollhouse and moved TSCC back an hour.

Unbelievable. The only good thing I can say is we will get to see Summer Glau’s Dollhouse episodes.


The live ratings for Fox’s Dollhouse had leveled off as of the third episode, which aired Friday, but the good news for fans is that new numbers from DVRs show are great and because of that, Fox has decided to air all of the 13 episodes that have been ordered for this season so far.

‘Levelled off’ must mean stopped falling off a cliff .

Who expected that??

Here’s the scoop: The audience for Joss Whedon’s show jumped more than half when factoring in the people who watched it later on DVRs, according to The Hollywood Reporter:

“We’re going to run all the episodes,” Fox scheduling chief Preston Beckman said. “We’re not saying we’re happy with those numbers, or accept them, but we don’t have to overreact.”

Not OVERREACT?? You mean like when you CANCELLED TSCC which had an INTERNATIONAL FAN BASE? Like that you toolz??

Premiere-week DVR data released Monday showed that the second-season “Dollhouse” debut climbed 50% from its very modest base of a 1.0 rating in the adults 18-49 demo. Beckman said DVR results have played a role in the show’s fate, though he wasn’t surprised by the new numbers.

“It’s one of the reasons that we brought ‘Dollhouse’ back; we knew it was DVR-friendly,” Beckman said. “Hopefully we’ll see the overnight ratings increase from week to week. With some shows, you have to look at the bigger picture.”

With SOME SHOWS you look at the DVR numbers? DVR results ‘played a role’ ? Oh frak me man, these people are full of shxt! They frakkin cancelled the WRONG SHOW and REILLY is a tool and we all know it and this is to save face. WhatEVAH! But how can we be even MORE insulting to TSCC fans who mounted an EPIC campaign and had BETTER DVR numbers?

Another big surprise? They’re even contemplating a third season! Fox says it will decide whether to keep the show going after the second season ends. Of course, they still have to decide whether to order the “back nine” episodes of the current season to make up a full 22…

Update: Passes 14-9 Health Care: Baucus about to pass bill out of SFC

2:54 pm EST: Passes out of SFC 14-9

Snowe only GOP vote for bill

Probably 14-9 or 13-10 of they count Lieberman as a Dem in the 13 Dems to 10 GOP ratio

Sen Kyl just revealed that the CBO score is based on a sheet of assumptions that SFC staff gave to CBO that are NOT voted on in Cmte. WTH!

Blanche Lincoln D NE indicates she will vote YES – big surprise, say goodbye to Blanche as she is booted out of office! Bob Beckel was on FOX a bit ago claiming she can keep her seat by voting yes for cloture to end debate on the bill (when it gets to the floor) and then vote no on passage when only 51 is needed to pass. Uhm no Bob, she is facing her constituents after this vote right here. That is enough to see where she stands.

Snowe R ME just said she will vote yes NOT a big surprise.

Well they are passing it. Let the truth and consequences begin. This should encourage healthy people to drop their coverage since insurers are now forced to cover them even if sick without the cushion of the universal mandate to spread the risk pool (no mandate until 2013). Totally counter-productive IMO.

2010 baby, it cannot come soon enough. AZ has a question on our 2010 ballot to protect us from the Federal mandates (in the event the opt out doesn’t make it into final legislation)

Let this be a lesson to those in American business who would deal with Team TOTUS. No deal is set in stone. Personally, I still await Billy Tauzin and big phaRma getting rolled, once they flip on that deal Seniors can reimport their rxs from Canada, and it will be sweet karma. Of course, Senior may find themselves on an American version of the NHS Liverpool Pathway soon enough anyway, God Bless.

Another apropos tune with the completely anti-health conscious Keith Richards, look at he and Ron smoking away, and they are living well today, go figure, rock on:

Jennifer Rubin on what’s to come:

As the New York Times reports, there is a jumbo fight brewing among Democrats over just how much they’re going to tax the middle class in the name of health-care reform. Senate Democrats want to tax so-called Cadillac health-care plans to pay for the gargantuan health-care bill, while House Democrats don’t think it’s a good idea to whack middle-class voters, and especially union members. Well, on this one, House Democrats have a point:

Update: U.S.S. New York sets sail: built with steel from the WTC


Update 11/8: She is now in active duty. God Bless.

USS New York, built with steel salvaged from the fallen Twin Towers, officially went into active duty yesterday in a somber but spirited ceremony on the West Side.

Families who lost loved ones in the World Trade Center attacks gathered at the Intrepid Museum on Pier 86 with hundreds of others — including Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton..

..It awes me to think that from the ashes, this ship has formed and to know it’s serving us,” said Helen Zaccoli, 45, whose husband, Joseph, died at the trade center.

Update 11/2: She arrived in NYC today. God Bless her and the crew and GOD BLESS AMERICA.

The World Trade Center sailed into the city this morning.

The USS New York, which has a bow built from 7.5 tons of Twin Towers steel, stopped near Ground Zero as a detail on board fired off a 21-gun salute.

Families of victims of the Sept. 11 attacks standing on the north cove then saluted the Navy’s newest warship as it continued up the Hudson.

After the 21-gun salute, petty officers Mike Sullivan and Paul Bershers,who were on watch on the bow, started singing Billy Joel‘s “New York State of Mind.”

After the Ground Zero stop, the ship escorted by about two dozen tugboats and other vessels headed up the Hudson River toward the George Washington Bridge. After a U-turn there, it was to head south to Pier 88. An official commissioning ceremony is scheduled for Saturday.

“It’s a transformation … from something really twisted and ugly, said Rosaleen Tallon, who lost her firefighter brother, Sean, on 9/11. “I’m proud that our military is using that steel.”

Tallon said her brother, who was also was a Marine, also would have been proud…
