By Steve Lee

Happy Monday to all. Here are a few of the stories floating about in Hollywood's cyberspace...

Hans Zimmer reveals in an online chat that he turned down "The Simpsons Movie" a few times before taking the job... and that the "Spider Pig" chorus was originally just recorded as a crew joke.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced they're working with the Library of Congress to preserve digital content - including movies - for future generations.

If you've been waiting to build your time machine because you can't find a DeLorean, you're in luck.

Jack Black has signed to appear in "The Lost Adventures of Stone Perlmutter Jr.," a faux documentary about an Indiana Jones-like adventurer.

Film making is on the rise in Connecticut due largely to a 30 percent tax credit the state created to encourage shooting here. So... I say again... why doesn't California do that...?

"Home Movie Day" is August 11th. To celebrate, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will present some home movies from celebrities, including Alfred Hitchcock, Esther Williams and Steve McQueen.

Have a good week...
