Holy Meat Loaf!

Cesar RomeroJim Steinman––a composer/producer whose regrets might include Bat Out Of Hell, Bat Out Of Hell II, Total Eclipse Of The Heart and, for all I know, Total Eclipse Of The Heart II––claims to be writing songs for a Batman stage musical. He's blogging about it, and he's posted an MP3 of a show-stopper belted out by that nefarious Clown Prince of Crime, The Joker: "Where Does He Get Those Wonderful Toys?" [Via Metafilter.]

Good Night And Good Luck

CNBC believes there was an Aquaman movie (like on HBO's Entourage), and that it beat the box-office record held by Spider-Man II until it was unseated this week by Pirates. Story & clip here.

Update: the reporter, Joe Kernen, says he was only kidding. Whether he was or not, the story's still a good excuse to run this wet, sexy cover. Ker-plash!

Heaven's Newest Angel

We little knew this morning that
God was going to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly
In death we do the same.

It broke our hearts to lose you,
you did not go alone;
for part of us went with you,
the day God called you home.

You left us peaceful memories,
your love is still our guide,
and though we cannot see you,
you are always at our side.

Ken Lay, 1942-2006
