Woohoo! More Fur-Piled! (But what of the mysterious page 131? Will we ever know?)

patch_bunny noticed this hilarious article on Bunny Burgers, seeking advice from PR agencies for their initial launch.

As kindly pointed out by thewerewolf, Eric Idle penned a response to his $5000 FCC fine for uttering "fuck" on Howard Stern's show. OH NOES!

Presenting: Elvis the RoboCat (5MB). Following a road accident, he lost the use of his hind legs; so, his human made up a robotic platform controlled by his front paws, in order to get around. It has a bit of a hoax feel to it, but it's a curious clip in any event.

Downhill Battle's just released the beta of their internet TV application, DTV, using RSS to publish channels, and BitTorrent to provide the necessary bandwidth. It's not the full launch, but OS X folks can enjoy the first version now, with Windows users to be supported shortly. It's all GPL code, so if you're using another OS and fancy wiring it up to use Mplayer or VLC for decoding, it's right there.

Reportedly, swan tastes something like pheasant. (It's legal in the UK in only certain circumstances, apparently including certain Oxbridge collegiate events, and more or less, Orkney and the Shetlands, on the basis of old Norse-derived law, and to members of the Royal Family)

Raymondo Person is a simply drawn, reasonably warped strip - it's liable to appeal if you've enjoyed Don Hertzfeldt's work. (Not always work-safe, as in the first one the link takes you to.

Reading up a little on Ernie Kovacs' career, I was tickled to notice "Kovacs' epitaph reads Nothing in moderation.".

I've long enjoyed Red Meat. As with most strips, it's something of a hit-and-miss affair, sometimes memorable, sometimes just vaguely amusing.. this one shows the spark's still there. ^_^

Hm! So the third Balto movie actually came out, presumably OAV. Sounds like a reasonable production, too.

On the global warming front, another fun indicator's been discovered, in the form of a million square kilometer peat bog melting into lakes. "The sudden melting of a bog the size of France and Germany combined could unleash billions of tonnes of methane, a potent greenhouse gas, into the atmosphere. [...] Western Siberia has warmed faster than almost anywhere else on the planet, with an increase in average temperatures of some 3°C in the last 40 years."
Heh! That is a fairly novel strategy.. ^_^ It's pretty common for anime to be aired one week and available on DVD within a month (often only one or two episodes per disc, and at Japanese prices - but it seems to work!), but simultaneous? I wonder how that worked out? With the rise of the net, and home theater systems becoming pretty high quality, I'd like to see more immediate availability - it'd make sense for a lot of people, being able to gather together in someone's home and enjoy a new film there, rather than have to go to the local megaplex. Of course, going out's part of the fun of it for many, but if you're, say, having to take care of a baby or toddler, it'd be far easier that way than having to sort out a sitter for the night. All up to the studios, of course, who keep wanting to exploit DRM to its full (non-)worth, expiring the files within some short amount of time, locking it to the same system it was downloaded on, and so forth. (Meanwhile, of course, the same movies make their way around the world for free, gaining the studios nothing in the process)

I'm fine with musical numbers in animated features, needless to say - just look at The Lion King. ^_^ (Oh, gods.. first time I saw that opening sequence running at one of the Disney Stores, I was enthralled. Still the film I've seen most times theatrically, by far - about eight times. Of course, it didn't hurt I was close to a real TLK fan at the time :) But when the numbers just aren't particularly memorable, as with Home on the Range (not a bad flick, just a bit lacking. Jack the Rabbit, animated by Shawn Keller, was a highlight).. ah well.

The new lady goose.

Hee! I suppose I've got to see this sometime. *giggle*
ask and you shall recieve... this is the nearly pornographic lady goose i was refering too. i laugh just looking at these pics. She singlehandedly coule bring the show form a G to a PG-13... or at peast PG... Yes its awfully suggestive in the actuall movie :P



anyways... enjoy the goofy stuff there :) Its definatly worth mentioning having seen the movie and actually finding it realy over the top with this new character. :)
