Some people are REALLY excited about Obama

I know there are certain people in the country and around the world who are excited about the impending Obama presidency, but as it turns out there are some people who are really, really, REALLY excited about the impending Obama presidency.

"The world is celebrating the election of the new USA President, Barack Obama, and the hope for change that he has stirred in our hearts. We are riding the wave of joy and renewal, which gives us a flying start for this year’s Global O! It’s the Global OOObama Factor! "

Apparently the big day is December 21st. As if the next few weeks weren't busy enough now I have to squeeze this in. And if that's not bad enough it turns out that the "Global O Time" for Los Angeles is 4:04 AM. I mean come on, I have kids. The last time I saw that hour of the day I was driving toward a location to shoot the sunrise.

Fortunately there are commemorative t-shirts available.

The Ultimate Story of Personal Transformation

As the LA Times trips over itself to toss laurels on Benicio Del Toro for his performance as the psychopathic murderer Che Guevara in the feature film biopic so poignantly titled, "Che," (a film reviewed after it's 4 hour 18 minute premier at Cannes by Daily Variety as a "commercial impossibility") one small piece of humor arises in toward the end of the story.

The piece describes Del Toro's next role as "perhaps the ultimate story of personal transformation. What could they be talking about? Shakespeare, Ibsen, Williams, O'Neill???

No, nothing so esoteric.

It's "The Wolf Man."
