New favorite line from the Simpsons, spoken by one of the police officers after drinking a "dosed" organic drink and spinning around in his office chair: "Electric yellow's got me by the brain banana!"

Tonight: CORNELIUS. So psyched. And at the Bowery Ballroom, no less, which has become my favorite venue in NYC. The only problem is that, because we're leaving so early tomorrow morning, I can't party as hard as I'd like to. A Cornelius show demands a certain amount of un-sober-ness.

This weekend: wedding in Montreal for the 3rd heybro founder. I'm a bit nervous about the drive, but I'm sure that once we're on the road we'll have a blast. Me, Kath and jongre - that's a good driving crew. Let's just hope that we're not so hungover that we can't move.

From IMDB news:

Vin Diesel, who has been receiving an extraordinary amount of media attention in advance of today's (Friday) opening of XXX, in which he stars (see below), has told a Canadian newspaper that he turned down more than $20 million to appear a sequel to The Fast and the Furious. "I don't like to be bought," Diesel told the Toronto Sun. "I have real issues with stuff like that." Diesel said he was determined "to do the right kind of work" and decided to reject the $20-million deal that would also have given him "back end" participation that "would have gone through the roof." He added: "The reality is that I have enough money. I'm not really worried about the money. But my artistic integrity is important."


Do you get to say you have artistic integrity when you make a movie like XXX?
