So, I'm double checking my listings to see exactly when ET is on tonight so I can set the VCR. (Doing dinner with mom as a late Mother's Day thing)
First off, can I just say "dear person that designs the TV station's website: How about NOT hiding the listings?"
Anyway, I find it and all that jazz and HOLY CRAP! Even bigger than Matrix Trailers and Amazing Races, not to mention Sole Survivors...this Saturday, 9 pm...CBS proudly brings you....
I wonder if that's like eXtreme Manilow?

"Well, Todd...Barry's gonna go for a 360 fakey on this next verse of "Mandy" on the half-pipe with a gnarly grind on the last chorus.....Oh! Manilow chokes! That's gotta hurt!"
good thing i'm outta beer, or that manilow thingy woulda had it coming outta my nose.
Nothing to do with Manilow -- the new _Matrix_ trailer is out in QuickTime at
Looks like Keanu's riding a Ducati 998 . . . :)
Wait a minute, where's that V-Rod?!
Thx, Craiggums. I just have dial-up, and for some reason the damn thing wasn't caching in my temp file. I got the first half of it (which is how I got the frame above) but I think there was too much traffic last night for my little modem to fight with. I'm going to try again tonight to get the whole trailer downloaded. So I can watch it over and over and over...sigh.
That had to be the V-Rod he was riding didn't it?
Wait -- what V-ROD? Is there supposed to be a V-ROD in the _Matrix_ movies? I love 'em -- my next bike is going to be a cruiser, and I'm seriously considering a V-ROD.
But in the trailer, about 2/3 - 3/4 way in, they're a real quick 3 frames worth of Keanu zipping down the highway on a Ducati 998 -- I stopped the playback and single-framed it to be sure. If you're curious, check out
The Ducati site doesn't seem to have any good rear views, but in the _Matrix_ trailer, you can see the distinctive dual exhaust / muffler system that hugs right up underneath the seat. Also -- note that the bike has a single swing-arm mounted rear wheel (that is, the rear wheel is only attached on one side), another distinctive Ducati 998 touch. Oh -- and also the bike's fairing has the word "Ducati" on it :)
If there's also a V-ROD in there somewhere, well -- "Bonus!"
Craig, here's the link to thematrixonline.com article about the V-Rod.
Oh, by the way, if you get a V-Rod? I wanna ride.
Thanks Krix! I did some Googling myself -- something about the V-ROD in the movie _flies_?
Could be fun.
And Krix darlin', if I get a V-ROD, for sure you'll get a ride!
Craig, I wanna buy my own V-ROD and go riding with you when you take krix out! Or you could just give me a ride, too!
Thats actually carrie ann moss riding the ducati 998...
I don't mean to be the devil's advocate, but i think that's Carrie-Ann Moss riding a Ducati 996
