Media Networks: The Chase for the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup championship begins with Sunday's 300-lap race at New Hampshire International Speedway in Loudon, N.H., at 2 p.m. on ABC.  I can't say I watch NASCAR, but now that it is back on ABC, I should probably start.  I'll have to get with Laughingplace.com's resident NASCAR expert Dave for lessons.

Consumer Products: 1Up.com has this interview with Propaganda general manager and vice president Josh Holmes  regarding their upcoming release, Turok.  It sounds very violent.  I wonder with Disney's focus on Disney branded content will this be the last mature release from Disney Interactive Studios, or will they want to become a serious game publisher by releasing all kinds of games.  I bet the response to Turok will dictate the strategy.

Video of the Day: Today's video has got to be Laughingplace.com's own video of the reopened Haunted Mansion at Walt Disney World.  I got to experience the attraction today and was very impressed.  I hope some of the additional enhancments end up in California as well.
