Soft news. Easy listening News. It's the weekend after all.

From Ananova.com:

Superman's bulge worries movie bosses

The new Superman is giving movie bosses a headache - because of the size of his bulge.

They fear Brandon Routh's profile in the superhero's skintight costume could be distracting, reports the Sun.

Hollywood executives have ordered the makers of Superman Returns to cover it up with digital effects.

The Sun's source said: "It's a major issue for the studio. Brandon is extremely well endowed and they don't want it up on the big screen.

"We may be forced to erase his package with digital effects."

Brandon, 26, has taken over the superhero's cape from the late Christopher Reeve.

Wardrobe artists have had to fit him with a special codpiece for the new film out next year.

(actually I think this is old, soft news, but kind of interesting anyway. Appealed to me anyhow. Neil's still not bck from the BDO.... hope he's in a good mood. The cat went poos on his Herman Miller chair and I've been blooging on his Powerbook. It's easier to get forgiveness than permission, right? I hope so!!)

I'd just like to say that you are doing a great job holding the fort.

Speaking of which, do you have any photos of yourself that you could post on the blog. Maybe something summery, around the pool?
