Van Damme wanted to fight terrorism

Kim Jong

Belgian movie hardman Jean-Claude Van Damme is being head-hunted to solve the world’s terrorism problems, by North Korean leader Kim Jong Il’s son and potential successor.

Jong Il’s 24-year-old heir Kim Jong Chol has reportedly been dismissed by his father as “too girlish” to rule the country, but is a leading contender as his elder brother is currently in self-imposed exile in Europe.

And North Koreans will be interested in Kim Jong Chol’s defence and foreign policies – which he proposes should be lead by the ‘Muscles From Brussels’.

Inspired by Van Damme’s terrorist-busting performance in 1995 film ‘Sudden Death’, he says: “I’d not allow weapons or atom bombs any more. I’d destroy all terrorists with the Hollywood star Jean-Claude Van Damme.”

The Porn Hunter – There’s Cash in Grandpa’s Dirty Pictures.

Rotenberg is one of the country’s preeminent porn collectors. Four Taschen books have been based on his personal stash—nearly 200,000 pieces and growing. “I want to acquire all that I can afford,” he says. “EBay is like New York to me—it’s the land of temptation. There are vintage-nude-photo auctions ending every 30 seconds.”

Need for speed Paris 1978

Une petite ballade en voiture datant de l’époque où Claude Lelouch faisait encore de bons films :

On an August morning in 1978, French filmmaker Claude Lelouch mounted a gyro-stabilized camera to the bumper of a Ferrari 275 GTB and had a friend, a professional Formula 1 racer, drive at breakneck speed through the heart of Paris. The film was limited for technical reasons to 10 minutes; the course was from Porte Dauphine, through the Louvre, to the Basilica of Sacre Coeur.
No streets were closed, for Lelouch was unable to obtain a permit.
The driver completed the course in about 9 minutes, reaching nearly 140 MPH in some stretches. The footage reveals him running real red lights, nearly hitting real pedestrians, and driving the wrong way up real one-way streets.
