"...as human beings we are capable of making sense of situations based on the thinnest slice of experience."

Malcolm Gladwell, author of Blink and The Tipping Point.


SHAKEN, NOT STIRRED: Although Amy Winehouse had previously been rumored to be the voice of the next James Bond theme, we now receive word of a duet - Detroit's own Jack White and Alica Keys. Hear it Nov. 7 when the 22nd James Bond film - Quantum of Solace - makes its North American release. (KC)

ASIAN GAME SHOWS: Hockey helmets and a giggling studio audience means somebody's going to fall hard. We start with a game of Human Tetris and end with 'Vic Romano' sending healthy, young spandex-clad athletes out to tear a hamstring in binoculars soccer. (LB)

NO. 4: Flight of the Conchords is a New Zealand comedy duo composed of Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement. The Conchords, "formerly New Zealand's fourth most popular guitar-based digi-bongo acapella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo" examine the Issues (Think About It). (KC)

BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR: No doubt politicians welcome a friendly bump from entertainers who jump on their bandwagons, but sometimes maybe not so much. Ludacris gives Barack Obama a friendly shout-out rap style and, well, Obama's not so happy with it. (RL)

WOW: Never say these guys aren't athletes. As this year's X Games continued this weekend, people still couldn't forget about skateboarder Jake Brown's four and a half story plummet last year. (RL)

JAY LENO CAN RELAX: Even though the world's oldest joke has been discovered, it's not very funny. (RS)
