Contrary to an earlier Hollywood, Interrupted report, the mysterious web presence known as "Project Xenu" did no aerial-advertising at last night's faux MI:3 premiere. Instead, the evil Lord Xenu made his first red carpet experience in 75 million years:
Undaunted, the heterosexual Tom Cruise ducked into an abandoned Scientology building...

...from which he emerged with a new Scientologist friend:

While the heterosexual Tom Cruise's new friend railed against psychiatry for him, the movie star took to the carpet to mingle with his fan:

When the heterosexual Tom Cruise and a much taller, much younger chick approached his fan to sign an autograph, a gang of cell phone camera-wielding internet bloggers descended upon him:

After the heterosexual Tom Cruise, his friend, that tall chick and his fan ducked into the Mann Chinese Theater for the premiere, Xenu disappeared into the sidewalk.

The guy who was supposed to set up the thing with the planes claimed that he was told yesterday that everything was set to go for 5:50 PM, but they never showed - and he's posted a copy of the cashed check to prove that he paid them. By 8 PM, he had called the banner company to find out why and was told they would get back to him, but nobody's posted anything in terms of a response yet. Hmmm. Curiouser and curiouser.

Um... Who is lord xenu? and where has he been for the last 75 million years?
Also, why are you hassling Tom Cruise. Is it because he marries women to cover up his closet homosexuality? Or is it because he acts like he has lost his mind? Or because Scientology is cult-like and freakish? Or because he cant take a joke and freaks out at the media?
Seriously, why are you guys so harsh on poor Tommie Boy?

Ah, Tom Cruise... epitome of evil.
Soon we shall destroy him and his ilk, and the glorious Dark Lord Xenu shall return to power!

I got it wrong. The initial call was at 6 PM, and it was all called off for the fog. Yes, I think everyone in Los Angeles will remember where they were when the Great Mysterious Fog That Engulfed This One Unnamed Airport But Nowhere Else In The Entire City Including Other Airports happened. It was a phenomenal moment. I saw it. It just didn't happen like that.

Tom is a nut. Xemu is a nut too.
