Oh, yes. Trailer for The Fountain, Darren Aronofsky's (Pi, Requiem for a Dream) latest work.

Notes on the Superbowl broadcast, for those not so desperately interested in the event. 'And again with the nuclear shaving. I'm planning a whole ad campaign now. Images of Bikini Atoll being gradually shaved down by more and more close-cutting blades. Khrushchev banging a Mach 3 on a table at the UN. "WE WILL SHAVE YOU!"'

Via electropaw - if you're sufficiently geeky enough to see what Google's up to, in this report on the search term 'scritch', you might recognise the photo of a certain werewolf. ^_^ It begins with the recent Pennsylvania Tourism Board's "Shining" parody..

If you remember the timeless Enter the Cow-orker, you may be pleased to learn he's now updating its successor instead, Blunt Trauma - tales of terrifying idiocy in manglement. Start at May 2005, but it's really (not) getting going by July. And by then.. oh, by then, you'll regard Dilbert as a cheery utopian ideal.

(And slycat might like following the link from there to The Chronicles of George, helpdesk tickets which.. speak for themselves)

Oooh.. want a robot pony? "Butterscotch" is 40" tall, and yours for $300. ^_^

And here's a peek at Flushed Away, plus a short article in USA Today, with a couple images from the film. 'One creature is destined to upstage the rest: Le Frog, a hit amphibian spoken by French actor Jean Reno. Wasn't he insulted to play, well, a frog? "At first we thought we should have a British comic do it because there is a tradition of the Brits ripping into the French," Fell says. "But a newer idea was to have a French actor do it. It's fantastic to hear this deep, rich voice coming out of this tough little frog."' The CG doesn't quite capture Aardman's stop-motion style, but it looks like it'll do. ^_^

If there isn't one at Further Confusion next year, I'll be most disappointed. :)

(And I want one too!)
