Wow, you look so greaaaat! Bidding war underway over the forthcoming "Bruno" movie

Whether or not you believe there is anyone left in the world who could be duped by Ali G/Borat/Bruno and not realize that they are being had on camera, Universal and Twentieth Century Fox are in a bidding war over the successor to Borat: Cultural Learnings Of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation Of Kazakhstan, what is known now only as the "Bruno Movie."

The article did have some interesting information about the soon-to-be-released Borat flick:

News of the bidding war came just a day after red-faced bosses at Fox admitted they had slashed the number of cinemas at which Borat opens this weekend in the US.

It had been scheduled to open in 2,000 cinemas, but will now open in only 700.

Fox executives pulled the plug on the wide opening after the film tested poorly, leading them to expect scathing reviews.

To their surprise, and now embarrassment, the reviews have been overwhelmingly positive. The film has also received massive coverage in the media.

Fox distribution official Bruce Snyder said studio bosses were now hoping to extend the film to as many cinemas as possible in the coming week.

Someone actually thought the Borat movie wouldn’t do well??? My ninjas, please.

Some of you [I hope] saw the post recently about getting a solar charger for your iPod. Well, if the 80 bucks is too much for you, or you’re more of a MacGyver ninja, you can make your own by following this crazy SOB’s directions.

[DISCLAIMER: MNP is not responsible for any foolish things you do to your expensive electronic gear. For instance, if this causes your iPod to explode and ignite your entire dojo…well, that’s what you get for being cheap.]

Booze: good for your heart and your memory!

Of course, moderation is key, but some good news for those ninjas that enjoy a brewskie or two after work:

"In the long run, a drink or two a day may be good for the brain. Researchers found that moderate amounts of alcohol - amounts equivalent to a couple of drinks a day for a human - improved the memories of laboratory rats. "

"There is some evidence suggesting that mild to moderate alcohol consumption can protect against diseases like Alzheimer’s in humans," said During. "But it’s not apparent how this happens."
