LIVE FROM THE WEST COAST

THE CAIRNS BLOG is coming to you today live from Vancouver, B.C.-- or technically, the outskirts of Vancouver, but close enough. I also haven't been very close to a computer very often, so blogging has been light.

In other news, the big story is the release of the much anticipated Robert Rodriguez-Quentin Tarantino effort Grindhouse. I imagine I will be talking about it as soon as I get a chance to view it. It's being released as a double feature and reviewers are already having a field day, many of them praising one movie while trashing the other. But so far the reaction has been largely enthusiastic.

This ranks right up there in the"much anticipated" category of movies--- the other is the Judd Apatow effort Knocked Up which has had people rolling in the aisles with laughter on the festival circuit. Based on Apatow's recent track record I'd go see it.

Oh yeah, another winning week for Sanjaya on American Idol. The campaign goes on. It'll be interesting to see which "election" will get more interest--- this one, or the Canadian federal campaign that may get foisted upon all of us unsuspecting Canadians.

And at least one town full of hockey fans- Montreal or Toronto- will be crying after this weekend is over as the playoffs will start without at least one of them.

More later.

Apatow has been the funniest man in the room since way back in his TV days with "Freaks and Geeks" and "Undeclared," so I'm definitely psyched for "Knocked Up"
