By Claire Beale ON ADVERTISING Bill Gates is shopping for shoes. He's a size 10, and he likes his leathers on the cheap side. In fact, he's a bone fide, platinum card-carrying member of the Shoe Circus Clown Club. Anyway, there he is trying on a snug pair of loafers in the "quality shoes at discount prices, why pay more?" Shoe Circus store. And who should walk in but Jerry Seinfeld? Bill Gates? Wow. Jerry Seinfeld? Hey, fancy seeing you here. Except, let's be honest, guys, it's not...

By Laura Petrecca and Bruce Horovitz To reboot Windows' image, Microsoft has kicked off its biggest consumer marketing effort with a TV ad -- about nothing. Ad experts differ on whether it's getting its money's worth from the big-budget 60- and 90-second ad featuring founder Bill Gates and Jerry Seinfeld, star of Seinfeld, a 1990s sitcom famously about nothing. The ad mentions Microsoft once (about making PCs "delicious") and briefly shows Windows' logo. It's mostly Seinfeld-like...

By Marty Crisp The western is long gone. We'll never see a resurgence of shows like Wagon Train, The Rebel or Bonanza. The time for that kind of frontier optimism - not to mention using American Indians as bad guys - is over. In 2002, writer/producer Joss Whedon tried to bring westerns back to the future with his cowboys-in-space adventure series, Firefly. The show grabbed an enthusiastic cult following, including me, but was canceled before the end of its first season. TV variety...

By Rob Sharp DOCUMENTARIES COMEDY The creative genius behind 'Seinfeld' and 'Curb Your Enthusiasm', Larry Charles, is turning his razor-sharp wit on world religion - and no one will be spared. Rob Sharp finds out why If you ever wondered who dreamed up Cosmo Kramer, the hipster doofus with a mistrust of authority at the centre of one of American television's most successful comedies, Seinfeld, then look no further than Larry Charles, a Jewish-American comedian with an encyclopedic brain...

By Preston Jones, Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Texas Jul. 20--DALLAS -- Jerry Seinfeld's beloved sitcom was, famously, "about nothing." Turns out that his stand-up routine isn't about much either -- cellphones, Cinnabon and the agony of children's birthday parties -- yet he still manages to wring some side-splitting observations out of the mundane. During the first of two shows at the Music Hall at Fair Park, the 54-year-old comic, clad in a sharp dark suit, spent 75 hilarious minutes...

By Sarah Linn, The Tribune, San Luis Obispo, Calif. Jul. 3--Wanda Sykes has never been afraid to speak her mind. Onstage and in front of the camera, she offers funny, sharp-tongued commentary on subjects as diverse as gay marriage, the government and sex. So when you ask the comedian and actress what she'd bring into legislation, she's got the perfect answer. "If you drive a Hummer, we should be able to shoot you," she said with a chuckle. "If you want to play soldier, we want to...

By Ken Hoffman, Houston Chronicle Jun. 26--There's a revolutionary idea for television -- a station that puts on crummy shows. Wait, I know what you're saying. They all put on crummy shows. But here's the difference. This one is doing it on purpose. "We're going to call it a night of Bad TV, and we're going to run it for three hours, maybe four, on Saturdays starting in October," said Channel 55 president Matt Reiff. "Whether it's three or four hours depends on how...

NEW YORK -- It's a technique on the tip of a lot of parents' tongues - and maybe their children's too: Puree healthy fruits and vegetables, and sneak them into regular kid food like macaroni and cheese or chocolate pudding. Watch the kids unknowingly gobble down their vitamins, and smile. But what's got people talking isn't just the good idea, but the fact that two cookbooks released a few months apart focus on the strategy in strikingly similar ways. Throw in the fact that one is written by...


Word of the Day
mallemaroking
  • Nautical, the visiting and carousing of sailors in the Greenland ships.
This word is apparently from a confusion of two similar Dutch words: 'mallemerok,' a foolish woman, and 'mallemok,' a name for some persons among the crew of a whaling vessel.
