Ed Case Lookalikes

Whom do you think Ed Case looks more like: Ted Forth or Boomer Esiason? I say Boomer, but Ted Forth is very close too.

Avatar, a.k.a Juggernaut

Avatar discussed in connection with David Foster Wallace's essay "F/X Porn."

(The late David Foster Wallace often contributed to Harper's and this blog asks "What if Avatar Took Over Harper's Findings?")

In an interesting footnote, Avatar is predicted to surpass Titanic's $600 million domestic box office take tomorrow, when Oscar nominations are announced.

(Revised 1 February 2010)

19 February update: Box Office Mojo reports that Avatar has earned almost $670 million domestically and $1.7 billion overseas for a total of almost $2.4 billion.
