good evening! thank heavens it’s thursday evening already – i just finished watching barack obama‘s historical & amazing acceptance speech (given on the 45th anniversary of martin luther king jr.‘s inspiring ‘i have a dream’ speech) without getting too much into politics (a topic i barely write about here on popbytes because it always gets everyone all fired up) the main thing is we do need a change…from the high gas prices and a faltering economy to a war that has gone on far too long (not to mention our crappy global image) it’s totally time to get rid of bush politics (our country feels broken and i hope & pray with all my american might that barack obama can help to fix the many issues at hand) we seriously do not need four more years of the same old bullshit & crap carried on by john mccain (along with his tacky & style impaired wife cindy – she’s a total train wreck)



ok enough of all that drama – let’s have some fun and talk about the new coen brothers (academy award winners for no country for old men) film burn after reading which premiered last night at the venice film festival and has a superb cast that includes brad pitt, george clooney, frances mcdormand, tilda swinton, and john malkovich! right now i’m trying to ignore any early reviews – i’m a huge fan of the directors (and cast) and i’ll be seeing burn after reading no matter what! the film opens two weeks from tomorrow on september 12th – check out the trailer below along with a few sexy stills of mr. pitt looking like a total goofball! popbytes over & out for tonight…xxoo

When a computer disc containing material for Osborne’s memoirs accidentally falls into the hands of gym employees Linda (Frances McDormand) and Chad (Brad Pitt), the duo are intent on exploiting their find. As gym manager Ted (Richard Jenkins) frets, events spiral out of everyone’s and anyone’s control, in a cascading series of darkly hilarious encounters…
