scroll to the bottom for cubs manager dusty baker's take on the modern man
-but let me save you the trouble and repeat it here:
"Guys don�t seem to talk as much baseball these days. They talk about a lot of other things like, what do you call those little things that puts 10,000 songs on there? Yeah, an I-Pod, things like that."
--Dusty Baker (Arlington Heights Daily Herald)

mark cuban starts getting at some of the details about his plans for movies and integrated distribution of films

News Askew: [Feature Story]
kevin smith's blog is back with rss feed. whew.
(i can't get enough of this blog. say what you will about his films, and i know most aren't fans, there's something so awesome about smith's rabid fanboy-ness. the fact that this man has become a very successful director and stayed in touch with the things he loves and continues to respect his fan base is really cool. and i use "cool" without any hint of irony. in a gushing, i'm a fan of kevin smith kind of way.)
