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. ^_^

"I am pitied by my rabbit."
Personally, I like that style of trailer, for giving me an impression of the style that'll be involved, without letting anything slip regarding the storyline - I prefer knowing as little as possible about a movie before seeing it, leaving me free to form my own impressions unhinted. 'Course, it's also not undesirable to know about the plot too, so I'll sometimes let myself read the first paragraph or so of a review, cautiously avoiding anything spoilerish.

And I've still not seen RfaD either. ^_^; I'd certainly be up for it sometime, but I'd want the right company for something of such gravity.

Wonder if I could "resurface" Butterscotch into a My (not so) Little Pony.. even cuter! ^_^

I'd suggest 'Tool Dip'. Not that I can find a link for the glop right now...

(Distracted by potential applications of various plastisols. Dear me. Devastating... and available in clear with pigment options, in hard, not so hard, and 'wriggly'...)
