Looks like old media follow new media more and more regularly. With the (decreasing) hype surrounding New Line’s Snakes on a Plane, Lisa Gutierrez of Knight–Ridder Newspapers got the idea about calling airlines to see whether one could literally get snakes on to a plane—something Nootropic already discovered in March as being unlikely.
To Ms Gutierrez’s credit, she does investigate further, including tips on what to do if you actually encounter snakes on a plane. Shooting and saying ‘Why are there *** snakes on a *** plane?’ are not recommended. Nothing in there about using Lucires in the seat pockets of Paciﬁc Air 121 to whack the snakes.
New Line needs to think carefully about issuing another trailer, considering its Google references have fallen from a peak of 9,700,000 to 4,360,000 today. Posted by Jack Yan, 03:30

NoteEntries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
