Ask a Ferrell

This weekend, I took my son Nick to Blades of Glory, the new comedy starting Will Ferrell and Napoleon Dynamite. It's a great film, once again proving the fancy critics with large vocabularies wrong (for comedies, my family only goes to movies that critics have utterly panned, like Dude, Where's My Car?).

I'm not here to tell you how to spend your $12. I'm here to tell you that the stars of this movie included the Web as part of their press junket just as much as "Good Morning America" and "Live With Regis and Kelly."

Besides an interview with Break.com, my son David (he gives me so much Redmond Report content that I'm going to have to start cutting him a check) pointed me to a great interview with the one and only "Ask a Ninja."

By the way, my youngest son Nick is stealing a page from his dad's playbook, launching a blog just as curmudgeonly and opinionated as his old man's. Most of the comments he's gotten are from me using fake names and fake e-mail addresses. This 11-year-old busted me when he saw that all the messages came from the same IP address (damn you, static IP!).

Feel free to check out his site and leave feedback -- just don't be creepy, rude or inappropriate (that's reserved for messages sent directly to dbarney@redmondmag.com).
