Oh, this is just adorable.

Now, I don’t cotton to people remaking old movies and putting vacuum cleaners in peoples’ hands (and I don’t like the fact that this is a car commercial), but if had just been done for fun, I would have loved it wholeheartedly.

They just released the trailer for Mirrormask, a Neil Gaiman movie by the Jim Henson company, online. Looks f-ing bizarre. Can’t listen to the sound at work, but it looks like Sandman does Shel Silverstein.

Just so more of you will begin to wonder what I do all day, here is a clockwork monkey in human clothing, smoking a cigarette. He also can play a 36 note musical movement.
And check out that walking stick. Sharp.

Because I hate you all:

The Hasselhoffian Recursion.

Had I my druthers, the next time some sweet, dewy-eyed 18-year-old had a “special moment” on some wholesome filth like 7th Heaven, this song would play in the background.

Gay bomb!

The Pentagon is spending YOUR tax dollars developing devices to make people homosexual.

From the article:

Most bizarre among the plans was one for the development of an “aphrodisiac” chemical weapon that would make enemy soldiers sexually irresistible to each other. Provoking widespread homosexual behaviour among troops would cause a “distasteful but completely non-lethal” blow to morale, the proposal says.

Plains, trains, and plantains: the Story of Oedipus

Someone actually turned this in, as a college essay. Don’t read it if you’re at work.

After watching my first full episode of Alias (my friend works on it), I came to the conclusion that Jennifer Garner, to my mind at least, bears an uncanny resemblance to Matt Damon. Little bit of surgery and makeup and you’re there.

What does this say about Ben Affleck?

Unusual sight driving through LA, at Sunset + Vine:

I’m pulling out into this alleyway from a pretty big shopping center, and in the middle of the road, walking the divider, is this guy, looks to be maybe 18. He’s got a batman shirt on and a jacket with a hood. As the car in front of me gets near him, he pulls up his jacket tail over his head, like a crested lizard. As I get near him, with the jacket crest still up, he starts rocking back and forth, before going forward on one knee, in some sort of bizarre dance routine.

I avoided eye contact and turned right as soon as possible.

Story idea

Basis for a short film/story idea I had at lunch:

A world where everything is populated by visual puns. Examples:

– Girl goes to get jacket out of closet, there is a skeleton in it
– A guy who has his heart attached onto his sleeve, who flings himself in a puddle to let his girlfriend walk on him
– A girl who cannot hear anything she doesn’t want to (probably a fairly political gal)
– Handsome guy/girl who mooches off his/her girl/boyfriend, keeps him/her down, doesn’t get up until late hours (a vampire; think Cassidy from Preacher meets Prince Charming from Fables)
– A guy who is constantly wired into the internet, who is always hungry, has all the latest gadgets, eats constantly, checks email continuously
– Someone who starts emitting hot red steam when getting angry (blood boils)
