3. Not necessarily.. He worded it vaguely
Us city dwellers is one "set"
65% of us is one set
65% with herpes..he could be one of the 35% without herpers, and still be part of the larger set of "city Dwellers"..

He will still be scum..no matter what group he's with./

2. You can find out anything on Usenet if you look long enough...
it's just hard to tell sometimes if what you've learned is in fact everything, or nothing.

XXXXX DRUDGE REPORT CODE RED XXXXX FEBRUARY 13, 1996 XXXXX

February 13, 1996


DEAREST BABE,


Just a quick note because I am sure you've already been told. I'm sure the
appleheads up at UNIVERSAL sent the rooster with the good news. And I'm
sure you don't really care that much. In your great prideless way, I'm sure
you put it all into perspective, unlike the human animals that make up this
Jaguar Farm that I live in. I'm sure you will still do you chores there on
the farm today. I just know you won't turn into a nasty 'high maintenance
star' after this. For them, you are the bright spot in the year of the
V-chip, but since we are friends, I will tell you that they are secretly
using you, by nominating you. They consider you a joke. A dumb film star
for simple minds. I know this because the they were laughing when Quincy
read your name this morning. Those porked-out intellectuals are saying your
picture was nominated, not because it was good, but rather to send a message
to Newt and Bill; to tell them that Hollywood is sweet, not violent. To
tell this violent-drenched world that they too are sick of it. They really
aren't sick of it though, lovely Babe. As I write to you from the Burger
King here at the corner of Sunset and La Brea, I am seeing many things
about this town I live in, this town I call home. I am seeing a lot of
Double Whoppers with bacon being served. And for their guilty consciences
they are sucking in buckets of Diet Coke to wash away the grease.


My heart glows warm to say that I knew you when. Before they Academy turned
you into a political football. Before they used you to cover their ass.


Call me when you get into town,


Matt Drudge

Samuel Goldwyn Theatre
Beverly Hills, California
_________________________


February 13, 1996


HOLLYWOOD (DR) -- This is the morning that defines, sets careers, puts
actors on the spot -- no, I'm not talking about the Iowa or New Hampshire
primaries, I'm talking about OSCAR nominations '95.


I had slept only 3 hours coming off of the Iowa caucus, I wasn't in a very
big show business mood to begin with, the action from the corn fields bolted
to the action here in Beverly Fields. I had a case of whiplash. They gave
it to Dole; Hollywood gave it to Dreyfuss.


5,4,3,2,1. (Applause) Cue Arthur Hiller, Pres. Academy of Motion Picture
Arts & Sciences (Sciences?), he will be making the announcements on who is
loved. Oh, actress Holly Hunter was ill, she was going to co-announce,
Quincy Jones, the Oscar broadcast producer, will be joining Arthur instead.


The stage featured fake green plants everywhere. Big fat flared-out furns.
My eyes kept zooming in on the fake plants as they read the nominations off.
It was 5:30 in the morning and Quincy had a rough throat.


Richard Dreyfuss' PR person made a scene running to the pay phone to call
the Mr. Holland himself. These drama queens. It was a quick announcement
ceremony that always leaves you thinking; that can't be all? So much build
up, so many days and night talking about it. So many swims out at the pool
with scribbled maps of who's up and down. Last June, it was BRIDGES OF
MADISON, by October it was GET SHORTY. Both of those maps proved to be dead
ends. The endless picking and kicking over who will get the OSCAR
nomination. The build up. The let down.


Pat Buchanan and Steven Forbes' favorite movie of all time, BRAVEHEART, did
very well. It lead the race with 10 nominations. That's a lot of Sherry
Lansing hugs. BRAVEHEART is going to win come March.


Tons of insider crowing about THE POSTMAN (IL POSTINO). A lot of DEAD MAN
WALKING applause. You may want to put some of the money on DEAD. And if
anyone is going to rob Dreyfuss, it is going to be star sean Penn.
Director/Actor/Lover/Poet/Musician/Father/Writer Tim Robbins got it for best
Director. (He is now Hollywood royalty.)


And e-v-e-r-y-o-n-e was in complete shock over how TOY STORY didn't even get
nominated for Visual Effect. (Hollywood gives the middle finger to the
technology wave.) They gave a mention to TOY for best Original Screenplay
instead.


Quincy running around implying that WAITING TO EXHALE was shut out
because...Emma Thompson is the new Meryl Streep...APOLLO XIII won't win a
thing...They let NIXON rest in peace...And the Academy is too cheep to buy
real plants.<


****

9. Sharon Stone
It must be. This is fascinating stuff.


http://groups.google.com/group/rec.arts.tv/browse_threa...


"Yesterday, this reporter strolled down the boulevard to the Sharon Stone
star unveiling on the Walk of Fame. (The 2,057th star) I should have worn
black. It felt more like a funeral than a star ceremony. Nobody of
industry substance showed. Of course there was Stone's best friend Faye
Dunaway -- of course there was Director Scorsese -- but that was it. The
guest list had three columns of names on it -- who knew? 'She must be alone
in the business. It would appear by the lack of V.I.P. turnout that nobody
likes her,' said a street-fan in the crowd. (The anti-Stone sentiment in
H'wood will hurt the film come awards time. However -- the DRUDGE REPORT
has learned that Sharon Stone is highly favored to receive this year's
GOLDEN GLOBE Best Actress award. The GLOBES are voted on by the foreign
press -- they have crowned Stone queen in recent months. By the time the
upcoming awards season is over -- Stone may want to move to Europe.
Stubborn H'Wood types just don't like her -- they will withhold the OSCAR.
Will cause pain.)


During the star's unveiling -- the clever ones at UNIVERSAL passed out
CASINO T-shirts (in funeral black) to the waiting street-fans who gathered
in front of the Mann's Chinese Theater. 'Put the shirts on!' ordered a
UNIVERSAL pusher. (So when SKY-TV beams the ceremony live to Europe -- it
looks like Hollywood is packed with CASINO wearing fans.)


Now to the ink. "

The morning of the 7.4 Japan quake I was busy fingering Tako (my love).
And boy she was blushing. Revealing that the plates are feeding off each other!
Tako stands high above the Volcano's base. She is my life. Tako tells me more about
the ways of life than any science student could!
Tako wants more lovers.
Finger her at finger quake@tako.wr.usgs.gov .................
