For your inner bitch: Go Fug Yourself.

rigelkitty might want to see this Flash animation starring one Buzzed Bunny.. ^_^

A very cool interview between Chris Wedge, director of Robots, and Steven Lisberger, director of Tron. ("At the screening, when Robin Williams learned that Chris worked on Tron, Robin immediately went into one of his maniac comical states and dropped to his knees in praise and then started quoting lines from the film.") It's really a conversation between friends rather than an interview, and all the more rewarding for that.

Kitty! Free to a good home! (960K)

Last year's Appleseed feature comes to R1 DVD on May 10th, in three versions, at $20, $30, and $50; the latter is recommended for those who want to have a hefty cyborg of their own to love.

So, I'm finally back on Bunny, following its extended airing - and thankfully, nothing seems to be awry. As capable a system as Dormouse is, it's nice to be "home", as it were.. and to know Bunny's survived its latest tribulation. (I think that spill was a little less of a heart-stopping moment than one time it fell out of my bag.. four feet onto ceramic tiled flooring, with a suitably dramatic slap. Ay yi yi yi..)

It's been doing the rounds, deservedly: a classic bit of billboard humor.. purely unintentional, I'm sure.

An excerpt (13MB, 13mins) from BBC 2's Newsnight current affairs show, illustrating the style of Jeremy Paxman quite well. It begins with an introduction to the subject matter, which obviously places the interview following in context - if you're only interested in the exchanges, feel free to skip across that. It's an enjoyable illustration of the style of British political discourse.. more fun than it might sound. ^_^

Track for the day has to be this (4.3MB) curiosity from Soul Flower Mononoke Summit. I'm at a loss as to how to classify it, but it's a wonderfully peppy little creature, as if straight from Little Israel in the heart of Tokyo.

And I think this icon says it all:

 
 
 
 
 
 
It's pretty cool. ^_^ Loved the soundtrack, courtesy of Paul Oakenfold.. worked really well alongside the animation. Seems they "cheated" on the actual animation, using a fair bit of motion capture, but still, it worked out. It's currently on "limited release" cinematically in the US, but I've not heard word of such distribution elsewhere as yet.. for now, it's the ol' fansub circuit for most. Or the Japanese DVD, if your linguistic skills are up to it. ^_^

Damn.. now I feel like watching Robocop again, save for the small matter of not actually having a copy.

(And no Cybermen in this series of Doctor Who? Poo. They're about my favorite Whovian villains of all, even if the writers did rather stretch the whole bit about gold destroying their respiratory gubbins)


Hmmmmmmmm, Appleseed...
I saw it in someone's living room.
Well, technically, it was a movie theater, but it was rather snug.

And hey! Robin Williams loves TRON! He's a geek!
One of us! One of us! One of us!!
I knew he was a geek, he used to come to Software Supermarket in '85 to
buy software for his PC and his son's C-64. He speaks French!


"Robocop, bop 'til you drop, do the Robocop." ("I like it, I like it!")

(Cough) Me got Criterion LD version (cough-cough) unrated cut (cough-cough) VHS tape? (Cough-ack-gasp)
