By Andrew Edwards Is "The Force" losing its strength? A new chapter in the "Star Wars" series - "The Clone Wars" is set to hit movie screens today. But in the wake of a much-hyped and - to many - disappointing round of prequels, "Clone Wars" may be one movie too many. "Really, no one is excited at all," said Jason Washburn, manager of Comic Quest in downtown Redlands. "Clone Wars," a computer-animated film, is a precursor to a new animated series scheduled to premiere on Cartoon...

No longer is there any variation of "Star Trek" on TV. The Grateful Dead essentially passed with Jerry Garcia, and even Phish is done now. The seminal pop-cult experience may be a thing of the...


Word of the Day
cock-a-hoop
  • Exultant; jubilant; triumphant; on the high horse.
  • Tipsy; slightly intoxicated.
This word may come from the phrase 'to set cock on hoop,' or 'to drink festively.' Its origin otherwise is unclear. A theory, according to the Word Detective, is that it's a 'transliteration of the French phrase 'coq a huppe,' meaning a rooster displaying its crest ('huppe') in a pose of proud defiance.' Therefore, 'cock-a-hoop' would 'liken a drunken man to a boastful and aggressive rooster.'
