"In the Heart of Old Humid Dallas..."

So, the big-screen Dallas was dead as of last week. Now, it's back on, according to John Travolta, who says he's meeting with a new director -- that'd be the third, by the way -- and hoping to start shooting here and elsewhere in early '08. Fine. This is even better: Yesterday, some dude posted to YouTube his rendition of the Dallas TV show theme with, ahem, lyrics -- which ... uh ... yeah ... include the phrase "in the heart of old humid Dallas." And here's the guy acting out the Season Two finale. Travolta, Schmavolta. --Robert Wilonsky
