'Puter done broke

I've got crazy intermittent web connectivity today... it goes up, it goes down, it goes up, it goes down. While that's much fun in the boudoir, it ain't fun when yer tryin' to post a DBT Week in Review.

Instead of half assing the DBT WIR, I'm going to delay in til Monday.

So, I'm going to slap up a few thangs for today, slap y'all on the ass, and tell you to have a safe and fun weekend.

Film 1000 films | Features | Guardian Unlimited Film

Well over a century has passed since the Lumière brothers frightened the life out of Parisians with The Arrival of a Train at a Station, and well over a million titles have since been recorded - if the Internet Movie Database is anything to go by.

Out of these million-plus movies, our team of experts has picked what we believe is the essential 1,000 - those that best sum up the dazzling achievement and variety of the movies.

Over the next five days we are publishing the full 1,000, in alphabetical order. Find them, along with expert comment, below.

My kind of Supreme Court Justice.

The Raw Story | Stevens: Smoking pot akin to drinking during prohibition:

"'Today the actions of literally millions of otherwise law-abiding users of marijuana, and of the majority of voters in each of the several States that tolerate medicinal uses of the product, lead me to wonder whether the fear of disapproval by those in the majority in silencing opponents of the war on drugs,' Stevens wrote.

Most debate over the efficacy of the war on drugs focuses on government crackdowns on users of medical marijuana, for whom the drug eases chronic pain. But in comparing pot smoking to social drinking, Stevens suggests that the drug could be legalized in all cases.

In his opinion, Stevens insists 'no one seriously maintains that drug advocacy ... can be prohibited because of its feared consequences.' Later, Stevens observes the shift in Americans' views on alcohol since the 1920s and 30s.

Scientists take step to making synthetic life:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Scientists have taken a first step toward making synthetic life by transferring genetic material from one bacterium into another, transforming the second microbe into a copy of the first.

They intend to use their technique to custom-design bacteria to perform functions such as producing artificial fuel or cleaning up toxic waste, the researchers report in Friday's issue of the journal Science.

From a Brit tabloid.... for what its worth.... That Amy.... She's so crazy!

Bizarre: Amy's sick self harm stunt:

"AMY WINEHOUSE has stunned America with a horror show of grotty, self-hating behaviour.

The Camden Caner carved words into her own FLESH, rushed back and forward to the TOILETS and launched into four-letter RANTS during an interview with a US rock mag."
