from the LACMA site

"The Mourners: Tomb Sculpture from the Court of Burgundy will feature forty sculptures from the tomb of John the Fearless (1342–1404), the second duke of Burgundy. His elaborate tomb, once housed at a monastery on the outskirts of Dijon, is now one of the centerpieces of the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Dijon."

I wonder if that where Dijoon Mustard got it's name.

No it's not wiki says"
Dijon mustard originated in 1856, when Jean Naigeon of Dijon substituted verjuice, the acidic "green" juice of not-quite-ripe grapes, for vinegar in the traditional mustard recipe.
Mustards from Dijon today generally contain both white wine and red wine. Mustards marketed as Dijon style may contain one or both of these wines or may substitute vinegar or another acid in order to conform to local laws."

So small figures of monks and people crying and behind sad were put in the the tomb with the Fearless one sort of like action figure death dolls. Check them out this May. I'm sure Tim Burton will when he see his exhibit open up.

Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy [Blu-ray]

Anchorman is one of the best comedies, for in nonsense oriented store, 70's style and take on local news. Now it's finallt been re-released on Blu-ray. Stupid, dumb and superbly funny the movie will make you laugh out loud to the ludicrous behavior of Will Ferrel playing Ron Burgundy. Ron Burgundy is the local reporter you see every morning so full of himself and stupid.

Extra are amazing if you can find the special "Rich Mahogany Edition" which was only available at Best Buy, here's what was inside: Anchorman trading cards, a month by month calendar for Ron Burgundy filled with his appointments. 2 Blu-rays one contain Anchorman, the other the extras.

Even if you don't get this edition there's still a extra blu-ray with a entire new Anchorman movie from what was cut from the original. A entire different story to watch. Some of it's great, some of it's not.
