Okay. Now what?

DO click on the Filmography link though.

Actually, click on anything, there's lots of little links that do...stuff.

And we care about the anti-vax loony's annoying website why?

65 have put together several highly interactive 'web experiences', it looks like. South Park, Simpsons, The Mummy, the Terminator TV show, etc.

So, obviously, the first thing I did was click on the Bio link. No prob.

I found the loading of the actual site a lot more jarring than the Bio link. It's a pretty neat site, and was surprised it could run alright on this ancient work comp with like 50k of memory.

Also, wow does he look old.

Did Crispin Glover design this website?

Come on, man. Everyone knows he was just saying that b.s. because he didn't want to not be banging his crazy-hot, also just plain crazy wife.

It's like Tim Burton and Terry Gilliam both shat in the same vaudeville outfit.

The great thing about Jim Carrey is you always know when he's being funny, and when you should laugh.

do NOT go in there.

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Am I the only one who found the loading bar really, viscerally disturbing? I clicked away until the music started so I wouldn't have to look at it.

The millipede, you mean? I liked it better than the annoying countdown speech bubble I had to wait through every time I clicked on a new section.

I don't know about you, but I don't enjoy actors for their stances on social issues any more than I like writers for their meatloaf recipes.

Eugh, you're right, his biography is almost unreadable in that tiny little pupil with that unmanageably small scrollbar.

Truly a gross atrocity in the annals of design.

Here's Jim in a dramatic role in a 1992 TV movie as the alcoholic oldest child in a dysfunctional family. Dramatic confrontation with his overbearing father begins around 2:30. Before he got all strange.

Nostradamus on cherry jelly.

The hilarious, fictional sarte cookbook.

Meatloaf authorship.

i hate flash sites. great graphics, but the flash should still be rendered an abomination for setting up sites top to bottom

I'm willing to give the guy a perma-pass simply for Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

I was okay with it until it went around a second time. Then not so much.

I also did not get beyond the loading screen because it brought Safari to its knees. This on a brand-fucking-new quad-core MacBook Pro.

Really. Fuck Flash.

Ran just fine in Chrome on a version of Windows XP so old that there are drawings of bison made from crushed berries on the hard drive.

This is part of Carrey's attempt to re-brand himself as a Burtonesque persona fantastique. See also: The Number 23.

The unintentionally-creepy quality of his humor is now his preferred typecasting, apparently.

I keep waiting for a list to pop up at the bottom directing me to find:

The Sartre cookbook thing is definitely hilarious:
Today I made a Black Forest cake out of five pounds of cherries and a live beaver, challenging the very definition of the word "cake."

Hasn't this website been up for at least 3 years?

I don't get why this is an FPP. Is it because people think it's awesome or awful?

Yeah, this has been around forever. Is there some context that makes it newly relevant? I'm not trying to be snarky, I just don't understand why we're feeding it.

Strange to see this here, but it reminds me that I got sucked into the Jim Carrey Tru Life videoblog site a few months back. Bizarre and probably more compelling than any movie of his I've seen. He had one particularly creepy video where he professed his love for an actress in her late teens, but he seems to have deleted all the old ones now.

Ah, it was Emma Stone, I guess she's 24. It's ostensibly a joke, of course, but.... **shudder**

I don't know about you, but I don't enjoy actors for their stances on social issues any more than I like writers for their meatloaf recipes.

I might dislike writers for publishing panda bear recipes.

I might be able to watch a movie starring an anti-vaccine actor if it's all about a story and not all about that idiot and how fantastic he thinks he is. I could watch Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind or Man on the Moon without feeling like I was just promoting Jim Carrey. But I'm not going to be able to enjoy a personal web site funded and designed by that idiot specifically and solely to promote that idiot as his idiot self.

That Sartre cookbook started off rather entertaining. but I couldn't help but feel let down by the lack of "french" cooking and food habits by the end. Betty Crocker? Black Forest Cake.. all a bit too Americana for Sartre. and "Toast"? the French do not eat toast except as Croque Monsieur.

I'm not sure what you guys are talking about. Unless someone agrees with me on every single issue, that person is dead to me, DEAD TO ME. Look, there are good people and there are evil people, and who needs evil people in their lives? I certainly don't, and I have plenty of friends. Right, GI Joe? [passes sugar to Roadblock action figure] What...what the fuck, GI Joe? You sonofabitch, give it back! Don't just sit there with that smug look on your face. Twilight Sparkle, you're closer, slap GI Joe for his impertinence! I...fine, you just sit there, too, you stupid purple horse, whatever. C'mon, Stealth Armor Iron Man, we don't need these assholes.
