Staking a Claim -- OK, so it might be a little too late for all those Buffy the Vampire Slayer fans left hanging last fall, but Spokane finally has its own UPN affiliate again. KQUP-24 can be seen on Channel 47 over the air and on Channel 24 via Comcast Cable. You can catch Buffy reruns in the Tuesday at 8 pm time slot until this fall, when the new fall season begins. Speaking of the new shows, while a lot of them look like your typical UPN fare, The Mullets looks reasonably entertaining. With a last name to match their identically silly hairdos ("business in the front, party in the back"), the Mullet brothers live with their mom (Loni Anderson) and have dialogue written for them by Josh Weinstein (The Simpsons, Futurama).





Buns in the Sun -- Lessons learned from this weekend's Bare Buns Fun Run at Kaniksu Ranch Nudist Park near Deer Lake:


* This is how you know you have arrived at a nudist resort: Halfway up the entrance driveway, the guy directing traffic is wearing one of those bright orange reflective vests. And nothing else.


* Naked men, for the most part, look ridiculous. Especially when running. (But let it be reported that the top three male finishers didn't look ridiculous. Not one bit, baby.)


* Naked middle-aged men look especially ridiculous.


* On an out-and-back course, you may hide at first behind your assets (so to speak), but returning by the same route requires (as it were) full disclosure.


* Who knew so many people have had had their nipples pierced?


* The epidemic of American obesity has not been overstated.


* People, please: Nude volleyball is such a clich & eacute;.


* Pierced nipples may also conveniently be used to display one's race number.


Overheard on the hike down to the starting area (a father is walking with his three-year-old son):


Son: Why are these people naked already?


Father: They're getting ready for the race.


Son: I wanna get naked right now.


Which pretty much sums up the Kaniksu credo.





Snoop Scoop -- So say you're Snoop Doggy Dogg, and you've just finished your gig in Spokane, but your manager is on your back about how you need to re-record some s**t for a fast food commercial. Right away. Who ya gonna call? Well, someone set the Doggfather up with The Shop/Black Coffee Recordings and the rest, as they say is history. Snoop spent some time with Shop recording maestro Bob Hartwig, signed one of the coffee pots, and left the crew with the impression of "a really nice guy." That Snoop -- he only acts tough!
