- REAL Star Trek XI Teaser Trailer 11
Some enterprising gent (get it?) recorded and posted a pretty lame trailer for JJ Abrams "Star Trek" movie, to which we are very much looking forward. However, at the end of the trailer is the big URL: Startrek.com.

Lame, lame, lame, lame, a thousand times lame.

- Brilliant chess master, world-class eccentric Bobby Fischer dies
He was the very dictionary definition of "insane genius," but I was just at the right age to fall in love with the Cold War stand-in of his match with Boris Spassky. That will stand as the one and only time a chess grandmaster will ever be a rock star in this country.
