Interesting facts from our November 11 chat with champagne
expert Ed McCarthy:

Question from Cathy: I heard there will be a shortage of
champagne this New Years.. Is that true?

Ed McCarthy: The problem is, this year there has been an
inordinate amount of champagne sold, in the United States especially... But, 
there will be champagne available I'm
sure even up to New Years Eve.

Question from ron_s: I'd like to know what are some good inexpensive champagnes.

Ed McCarthy: First of all, you have to look at the
non-vintage brut category...Bollinger Special.  Cuve`e
is another one.
From our November 10 chat with writer/director Kevin Smith:

Question from Lusiphur: I hear that Jay and Silent Bob
may only have one movie left and then only be seen in print
and the "Clerks" animated series (which sounds so great).
Is that true?

Kevin Smith: Let me ask you this. How funny would it be
to see a 45-year-old Jay and Silent Bob still trading on
the same tired (snootchie-ootchie) material? Sooner or
later, me and Mewes have to let our screen alter egos
go quietly into that already overcrowded cemetery of
has-beens and one-joke wonders. You'll find us interred
somewhere between Bill and Ted and Bob and Doug,
two rows behind Erkle.

Our news geek of the week is biffbampow, who won the weekly
