Director Blake Edwards dies (news.blogs.cnn.com) I've seen more of his films than I initially thought - and they were all pretty funny. Ditto on all counts. I didn't know he was alive and I've seen more of his films than I expected. RIP As usual, The Onion A/V Club put together a great write up complete with clips: http://www.avclub.com/articles/rip-blake-edwards,49160/ I didn't know Edwards worked with Orson Welles on the War of the Worlds radio broadcast. Wow, he was old. (edited by John Orquiola on 16.12.10 1118) @BackoftheHead www.backofthehead.com

Now if you have an extra 10 minutes, I'll recommend the scene that leads up to it: Click Here (youtube.com) Just the money shot: Click Here (youtube.com) (NSFW) I still pull out The Great Race every 3 years or so. Then there was the time Blake received an honorary Oscar, and drove his motorized wheelchair right through a wall. Dying is easy. Comedy is hard. Rest easy, funnyman ;)
Letterman and Oprah. Awesome. I was kind of underwhelmed with the commercials this year...but I'll give it to the Bud Light "Hitchhiker" spot. The Emerald Nuts ad was good too. The Sierra Mist ads were horrible.
