Porsupah smile by Djinni

Cats and frogs and a zebraman

Wondering what Terry Gilliam was up to, I turned to the usual font of all cinematic knowledge, and found The Brothers Grimm is his next, coming out in 2005: "Will and Jake Grimm are travelling con-artists who encounter a genuine fairy-tale curse which requires genuine courage instead of their usual bogus exorcisms." How can you not love a film with "Genre" listed as "Comedy / Action / Adventure / Fantasy / Horror / Thriller"?

The opening page is a genuine lost pet notice. Click through for more.. him name is hopkin green frog

The music noted above can be found here (6.4MB MP3). It's an odd one to describe, with passionate Italian vocals, not quite orchestral strings occasionally devolving into Plaid-like digitalia, with a goodly dose of 80s pomp.

Welcome to Hello Kitty Online World. ^_^ And the desktop backgrounds are worth snagging, too. Currently, the site's not very forthcoming on when it'll actually be launched, or what will be necessary to play, by way of system or money, but it's worth a look anyway.

Like Fat Planet, Aurgasm brings forth a wide variety of styles of music, from Polish house DJs through to Argentinean folk music. And, Jaga Jazzist's Animal Chin video (14MB QuickTime) is a little odd. ^_^

A rather differently styled TV, though you certainly pay handsomely for it.

Superb "attack" ad (11MB QuickTime) on the "wolves" theme. ^_^

Rather a good little piece aimed at the knuckle-draggers on the subject of gay marriage.

Noses! Noses!

More yaoi imagery than you can shake a.. (Absolutely not even remotely work-safe, yay!) And while we're at it, this pic is also worth a look. ^_^

Feel like recording an MMS stream? majormms has the rabitguy seal of approval.

A prescient voice of anxiety over Ohio's adoption of touch-screen voting. Fraud or not, who on earth can lend security credibility to a system wherein the central collators store the results in a perfectly open, unprotected Access database? ~boggle~

W00t! Whilst the series has never been released in any medium (aside, that is, from three tapes holding two episodes each, and How I Spent My Vacation), I'm finally - possibly - laying my paws on about 70% of the run of Tiny Toon Adventures. Certainly, it suffered from uneven animation, courtesy of three animation houses - Tokyo Movie Sinsha, Akom, and Kennedy - adhering to the models to varying degrees, but it still had a great sense of fun to it, and laid the way for Animaniacs. And it was the series which led to me falling in love.. ^_^ (All in the past, sadly, but so it goes)

And the Spork fansub group has released their (soft-subbed, unusually - very handy, as that permits the subtitles to be moved around or resized depending on what display you have, rather than being compelled to put up with whatever choice the fansubbers made. Mostly fine, but occasionally you wind up with someone thinking 8pt type would be just peachy) version of the live action Cutie Honey movie. Yay! (As directed by Hideaki Anno, he of Evangelion, though he proved he's not limited in versatility in Kare/Kano) The trailer suggests it'll be a lot of silly fun; perhaps I'll make it a double bill with Miike Takeshi's superhero spoof, Zebraman.

Bleah. I read of some wondrous dreams here and there, and I get stuck with a nightmare.. I shan't bother sharing the details, but if it'd been a movie, I'd have walked out in disgust. Still, I woke up instead, which probably amounts to the same thing. (Unfortunately, I can still remember the imagery; I'll let that fade)

And, by way of coyo, some quite priceless Diebold advertisements. ^_^
