Shocker of the week: #15 Oklahoma State got absolutely drubbed (45-3) by UCF, which came into the game 4-5. Oklahoma State has had a roller coaster of a season. They ground out wins against major programs like Kansas, Kansas State and Oklahoma, but they got crushed today by UCF, and lost big (33-7) at home earlier in the season to South Alabama, a mediocre team in a mediocre conference.

Thriller of the week: North Carolina beat Duke 47-45 in double OT, thanks to Duke’s failure to nail a two-point conversion.

That’s what I get for praising Rutgers – they got shut out this week!

Just to show that last week was no fluke, formerly ranked Air Force again got trounced by a weak team. (Hawai’i came into the game 3-7.)

Otherwise, everything went pretty much as expected.


Speaking of great 1982 nudity. (Adam brought this up in the Jamie Lee Curtis thread.)

I don’t think the European theatrical version, the one with all the nudity, has ever been issued in digital media. I think I did as good a job as anyone has ever done on these scenes, which is to say that my captures suck, but don’t suck as hard as the others I’ve seen. I made these in 2006 from a dubbed SD broadcast on Italian TV!

(The last three were captured by somebody else from a source not known to me.)

I would love to see these in Blu-Ray quality.

The eccentric method actor is in training for his role in the new King Kong film.

He does not play King Kong or even his heir, Prince Kong, but the prince’s younger brother, Harry Kong, who shocks the entire royal gorilla family by marrying outside his species. His bride, a chimpanzee, had once starred in a TV series, “Fruits,” which focused on the chimp diet.
