Extraordinary Measures Countdown: Harrison Ford Already Works Around the Clock!


News
What a strange and delightful journey we've had with Extraordinary Measures, which was briefly titled Determined and before that was called The Untitled Crowley Project, but will always be best known as the movie that brought Harrison Ford and Brendan Fraser (and Ted Kulongoski) to Portland to save the lives of babies stricken with an obscure disease.

Is Anybody Awake Past 10 PM At Comcast?


News
Here's one from the department of small-but-ridiculous problems: Last night, in a fit of pure boredom, I channel-surfed over to the 10 pm re-broadcast of the Arizona State-Oregon basketball game on Comcast Sportsnet just to check in for a few minutes on the miserable state of Pac-10 basketball.
