    Don Flamenco was a pussy. Mr. Sandman was one bad motherfucker.

    As far as the movie, I too have heard good things about it. I'm sure I'll plunk down some dough to see it.

    To reiterate, I've seen good reviews. The feel of the movie is supposed to have the gritty, low-budget tone of the first Rocky movie.

    By the way, anyone who thinks Stallone is a mumbling fool, I heard him interviewed on the radio recently and he's surprisingly articulate.

    He's surprisingly rich.

    Milo Ventimiglia? Good kid. Covered him when he was a 119-pound wrestler at El Modena High School in Orange, CA. Graduated from same high school as NASCAR driver Robby Gordon.

    Any relation to Artie Bucco?

    I've read that he's his son. But they list his age as 29, and reports seem to persist in listing Artie Bucco's age as 42. So that doesn't compute.

    Not only that (and I can't verify this), the guy has a very high IQ. I've heard him with Stern before, and they had a remarkably funny, candid and thought-provoking conversation about Hollywood.

    Also played the mysterious Jess on Gilmore Girls.

    Time to light myself on fire.

    So far - via rottentomatoes.com - Rocky Balboa has five good reviews and three bad. The good include EW and Rolling Stone.

    A friend of mine had the opportunity to spend some time with one of the better-known Hollywood agents, and asked him who the real assholes are out there.

    Guy said two words. Sly Stallone.

    The truly good guys? Among those the agent said, interestingly, was Tom Cruise.

    I read somewhere once that Stallone orders hired help not to look at him during parties. He also broke up with a woman via Fed Ex (then had a kid with her).

    Yeah but he just wants you to sign up for Scientology.
