What would Jackie Chan say?

I watched Jacke Chan in The Accidental Spy on the weekend. Jackie usually delivers an entertaining movie, and this was no exception.
What was the exception though, was the cover.
I've never seen such a piece of misleading media.

So, from top left to bottom right, lets take a look:
Fighter jets- it is possible there was a very brief flypast, but I must have missed it.
Blonde Girl- I think i would have remembered her in the movie, but I don't think there was any blode women at all.
Jacke- Well, at least he was in it!
Lady in Black Catsuit- No, another no show.
Parachuters- Jacke did use some umbrellers as a makeshift parachute...but not this.
CIA type guy- I think he must have been in the backround, as an extra, in a completley different film!!!

So, how on earth did this end up as a cover for this movie???

What would DIY Man say?

I've been buying up the 40 disc cases on Amazon : LINK
They tend to fluctuate in price, but £6-7 is average each.

They are great for saving shelf space. I found you can get all 6 series of Lost in 1 case! or Futurama, Life on Mars & Ashes to Ashes in 1, plus I have a few called things like War Movies or Action movies.
A huge shelf saver!

What would Carly Simon say?

So I've heard yet again on the radio, Carly Simon's 'Your So Vain'. The repeated chorus is:

You're so vain, you probably think this song is about you
You're so vain, I'll bet you think this song is about you
Don't you? Don't You?

Now I don't know much about this song, who it's about, how angry she was etc, etc, but the lyrics are begging the man to dare to think she cares enough to actually write this song about him....but, well, the unfortunate mistake Carly made was that, yes, the song WAS about him. If not, who else is it about?
