Fact: You probably know about the 7 Wonders of the Ancient World, but did you know about the 7 New Wonders of the World, that were chosen in 2005?

Not that I'm interested. Not in an unknown selection process that winnowed the 200 nominees to 21 finaiists. Not in the ballot stuffing that picked the 7 winners from the 21 finalists. What interests me is who failed to make the final cut. And here are some of them.

the giant statues of Easter Island -- Moscow's Kremlin -- Sydney Opera House -- England's Stonehenge -- Greece's Acropolis -- Paris' Eiffel Tower.

Next time: What's in a name?
and maybe two film casts from two upcoming films that are casting outside the box.

I think Table Mountain should be on that list.  Smile

Fact: the dusky shark is also known as . . .

the bay shark -- the black whaler -- the bronze whaler -- the brown dusky shark -- the brown shark -- the common whaler -- the dusky ground shark -- the shovelnose -- and just "Shark! Shark!"

As for the two cast lists . . .

Cast lists for films don't interest me that much like they once did, but there were a couple of recent cast lists that caught my eye.

First, the voice cast for "Planes," which is Pixar's aerial version of "Cars," and is one of the most eclectic casts I have seen in some time, as it includes . . .

Val Kilmer -- Dane Cook -- Julia Louis Dreyfus -- Brad Garrett -- John Cleese -- Teri Hatcher -- Priyonka Chopra -- Anthony Edwards -- Stacy Keach -- Cedric the Entertainer -- Sinbad -- Carlos Jaime Alazzraqui -- and Brent Musburger, who voices a character called Brent Mustangburger.

Always good to see and/or hear John Cleese, and Stacy Keach is one of those 1st look/2nd look choices. At 1st look it is "No, that'll never work," but on 2nd look it is "Yeah, that might work afterall." Nice thinking out of the box, Pixar.

And it does look like Pixar is going for something that does not only have national appeal, but international appeal.

The only one that seems to be missing is John Ratzenberger.

The 2nd cast, not as eclectic, but it does have a couple of interesting actors in it.

Marvel's 'Captain America : the Winter War" w/ Scarlet Johanssen, Samuel L. Jackson, Chris Evans, Robert Redford, and UCF Champion Georges St. Pierre, who plays one of the villains in the film.

Robert Redford. Not that "Captain America" needs it, but Redford adds some class to any film in which he appears. For while Redford was out of acting, but now he seems to be doing one film a year, and it looks like "Captain America" is his film for next year. I am so old I can remember when Redford was still doing episodic TV. That's over 50 years ago and still counting.

Marvel's out-of-the-box choice is UCF Champion Georges St. Pierre. Nice going, Marvel. Hope it works out.

Next time: "My pappy was a minion, and I'm his son of a gun" and "'Marvel Films,' it's just a license to print money."

About 90% of all BBQ joints in America isn't real BBQ, it's cooked meat with sauce from the jar smothered.

REAL BBQ is actually slow roasted with sugar and spices caramelized into the meat.

No Misfit - you're thinking of "barbecue." "BBQ" is meat smothered in sauce from a jar. (Wish I could find Joe Bob Briggs' column about the difference between barbecue and BBQ online, but I can't. I believe BBQ has to be served on a sloppy Joe bun and only two choices of sides are allowed---potato salad or pinto beans. And I think it has to be served by a lady wearing a hairnet to be genuine BBQ).

In the Carolinas, "real" barbecue is pulled pork fried in vinegar.
They have a pretty fierce attitude about it around here. What Misfit is describing, the Carolinians would call "ketchup" or Texas Style, even though it's neither.
Being from Texas, I get a little insulted when I'm served Kansas Style or Hawaiian Style barbecue, & they call it Texas Style because it's not Carolina Style.....

The only literary influence Tolkien would admit to (Northern mythology aside) is H. Rider Haggard's She.

Pulled pork and vinegar? sounds disgusting to be honest (really, pickled pulled pork?) Barbeque wars is something I'm not to knowledgeable about. However, I do see Cerb's Point- Everytime I see an advert for "Cajun Spiced chicken" All I can think of is that it is really an outsiders take on New Orleans style food.
