And another thing

This is quite old, I know, but I was reminded of it by the STOP sign video link I just posted. So as not to have to go spelunking for it again the next time I think about it: National Flags of the World, with client's comments.

What If ...

What would it look like if the stop sign hadn't been invented by the gummint, but had been outsourced to a private marketing firm? Let's imagine, shall we?

WTF Is Up With England, Part 2

Fox News is reporting more details about Christian Bale's arrest. He apparently is charged with a class 5 verbal assault, which, as far as I can tell, translates as "raised his voice in a surly or disrespectful manner." He's lucky he didn't "intend to cause alarm", because that would be a class 4 verbal assault, you see, and holy farking christ on a pogo stick we don't want to go there.

I Love Dr.Horrible

Kathy and I bought a season pass on iTunes last week and downloaded all three episodes, but we didn't get around to watching them until tonight. Holy crap, that was amazing. Get some.

Neil Patrick Harris was perfect. He made me laugh, and cry, and really feel what Dr.Horrible was going through. Also, Nathan Fillion was high-larious. Go watch it again.

WTF is England's Problem?

Taking a photograph of a collection of hoodlums disturbing the peace outside your apartment results in a warning to the photographer and might lead to his arrest on assult charges. I've long wanted to visit the U.K. but crap like this makes me wonder if maybe that isn't such a hot idea.

You Did What?

He might be the only movie reviewer that the average man-on-the-street could name, but ABC doesn't much care if he doesn't work for them any more: Ebert and Roper are both leaving "Ebert & Roeper".
