A friend of a friend is looking at joining a Roller Derby league and was asking us for nickname suggestions. Apparently, any suggestions she brings forward are checked against this master list for uniqueness. And this list is wonderful. If you like hilarious (and not-hilarious) pun names, you could spend hours browsing.

There IS exciting news! The roller derby nickname has been chosen! It was suggested by... our very own Zeruel! My friend will skating under the name Dixie Wrecked. Take a bow, Zeruel. If you ever make it to Saskatoon, I bet you could get a free ticket to roller derby.*

I saw this movie at the Austin Film Festival on Saturday night. It was good, but there's this one scene near the end with Laura Linney's character who plays Sean Penn's wife. It came completely out of nowhere and looked totally out of place.
