1. "Garbage Day!": Wherein the greatness of 80s cinema is irrevocably proven.
2. ""UUUuuuuuhhhh.. Miss Uggams x3": Wherein Miss Leslie Uggams forgets the words... thrice.
["Because it's June! June, June, June. Just because it's June! June! JUUUUUUUUNNNNEEE!!!"]
3. ""I Can Die Now": Arkin Celebrated at Lincoln Center": Wherein Mister Alan Arkin purports to explain the existence of Little Miss Sunshine.
["The Film Society of Lincoln Center paid tribute to Alan Arkin Tuesday nightwith a special screening of Little Miss Sunshine. The film isn't the actor's most recent (I guess they wouldn't show The Santa Clause 3) nor is it his best (or second- or even third-best when you consider The Russians are Coming The Russians Are Coming, Glengarry Glen Ross or 13 Conversations About One Thing), but it is no doubt anchored by Arkin's wonderful performance in the role of the heroin-snorting Grandpa."
4. "30 Great Westerns": Wherein we ride roughshod and bareback through film history.
["Welcome to our survey of "30 Great Westerns." These are the Westerns that any fan of the genre should know. These are some of the most influential and important Westerns ever made. We don't necessarily claim these are the 30 "best" Westerns. The Covered Wagon (1923), for example, hasn't aged very well, but it helped change attitudes toward Westerns and allowed for serious, feature-length Westerns to follow in its wake."]
5. "S. Korea says avoid a prostitute, win a prize": Wherein the libido is bribed, to no avail.
["The South Korean government is handing out gifts for office workers who promise not to visit brothels this holiday season. "If you promise yourself to make it a healthy night out at the end of the year, and if you recommend this to others, we are giving lots of prizes," the Ministry of Gender Equality said in an Internet posting. The ministry is offering to pay companies whose employees pledge not to buy sex after what are typically alcohol-soaked, year-end parties."]
