Mutant Arm Hair Care Record

from The Associated Press

Jackson, WI - Hair care is important to Jon Sanford, especially the care of one specific hair.

The Jackson, Wisconsin, man has a strand on his arm that's more than four inches long. He calls it his mutant hair.

Now, he's trying to get a Guinness record for the world's longest arm hair. The current mark stands at just less than four inches.

Jackson says he's sent all the paperwork to the Guinness people. Not everyone is impressed with his long arm hair. Jackson's mother, Sue Sanford, says it's "gross." But Jackson's daughter Molly calls it cool.

Hard Hobbit To Make

McKellen Talks Hobbit Controversy

from Dark Horizons

Gandalf himself, Sir Ian McKellen, revealed on Wednesday he is upset over recent talk that director Peter Jackson may not make a film based on author J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit.

"On my own account, I am very sad as I should have relished re-visiting Middle Earth with Peter again as team-leader. It's hard to imagine any other director matching his achievement in Tolkien country" he said in a posting on his official site.

Despite this week's letter from Jackson, many industry insiders still expect him to be involved on the project and that this public spectacle is merely childish negotiating tactics from both parties over both the deal and the outstanding Fellowship lawsuit.

"We will have to await developments but being an optimist I am hoping that New Line, MGM and Wingnut can settle outstanding problems so that the long expected Hobbit is filmed sooner rather than later," McKellen added in his post.

For now though speculation continues with some wild talk at The One Ring that Spider-Man helmer Sam Raimi has been contacted about potentially helming.

The Cerepuss Three

Brazilian student Cassia Aparecida de Souza, 18, holds her cat Mimi together with what Cassia claims are Mimi's own offsprings born with dog traits last Friday, three months after mating with a neighbour's dog, in the southern Brazilian city of Passo Fundo, Rio Grande do Sul state, November 15, 2006. A geneticist from the Passo Fundo University plans to take blood samples from the animals to verify the claim by Cassia and her husband Rogerio that the puppies are part of Mimi's litter of six, of which the three that were born with cat features died soon after birth, leaving the surviving three dog-like offsprings.
