is one of the strangest sites I've seen in some time. I have no idea how these people got their cats wedged into their noses, or why.

A student asked the Master, "What is the nature of the Unofficial Daria Movie Rumor Page?
The Master repiled, "The Page is a long, confusing story told backwards
. It is lies and half-truths
, yet it is the greater truth. It is a mirror, a puppet show
, a morality tale, a fiction which is real life, an homage yet the reverse of an homage
. It is the future, set in the present, retelling the past
. It is the present, set in the present, retelling the present."
The student said, "Huh
The Master continued, "If all else fails
, look at the very bottom of the Page, past the links and the Web rings."
The student, not understanding, did as the Master told him. It was then that he was enlightened

Our Whizeels iz tha Shizeel
Awesome compositing, audio and 3D work. I like art that make me want to step in to its world, (Note: QuickTime). The incredibly low barrier to entry for this kind of project, as compared to 10 or even 5 years ago blows my mind.

Download Fahrenheit 9/11 Here
This guy wants you to see the Moore film and is willing to suffer a possible lawsuit in order to get it to you. Free.
"I'll see how my bandwidth holds up. Here is the initial release of my posting of Fahrenheit 9/11. It's big. Its 650 megs. So - if you are on a slow connection - don't even bother. Go rent the DVD. But if you have DSL or better - here it is."

: The Long War of John Kerry, is the new documentary in theatres about Kerry's service in the Vietnam War and his subsequent protests against it. Somehow, I'd never even heard about this film until this morning. Reviews of the film
seem to be mostly positive. Have any MeFi members seen it? Do you think this will have any affect on election day?

Alfred Kinsey: Liberator or Pervert?
(New York Times link, I hope you know the drill by now.) A newish movie
explores the life of Alfred Kinsey
, sex researcher and founder of the Kinsey Institute
was author of the controversial book Sexual Behavior In The Human Male
. The controversy has blossomed oh these many years later with accusations that Kinsey's work is fraudulent
, and conducive to child based porn and fantasy
. The ultra-right seems obsessed with sexualizing his research in terms of "protecting the children"
. His observations have been linked to the addictive, destructive nature of pornography, that twists our notions of sex and love, and even enables the sexual abuse of college students in class. (Yeah, I know, that last sounds kinky, doesn't it?)

Normal for Us: The Millter Twins
This is a pretty amazing documentary, made by Eric Cain for Oregon Public Broadcasting, about twins Michelle and Mariya Miller and their family. The girls were born with Spinal Muscular Atrophy and therefore have never been able to walk. The parents were determined to have their daughters live life and so developed unique motorized transports and a home that accomodates their needs. In a tiny town in Alaska. Talk about pulling the tears right out of their ducts!

Zach Braff's Garden State Blog.
Yeah, semi-PepsiBlue, but Braff talks about more than the movie, and the star of a movie choosing to write a weblog for a few months is a bit more of a commitment than the usual handful of talk shows.

is a movie of questionable legality released in India in the mid eighties. Perhaps it should have had a wider release since it has a great deal of humorous appeal for Western audiences. Check out this review
from Stomp Tokyo. I'm looking forward to a crossover when Indian Superman meets Indian Spider-Man

makes you want to pick up a great novel
and consume it in one long gulp. It’s a love letter to literature and literacy, a bibliophile’s dream film, dedicated to the joys of fiction and the passions of those who need books like they need food, water and air." (The Dallas Morning News)

Wizard People, Dear Reader
is a bizarre re-reading (or, if you're Tim Burton, a re-imagining) of Harry Potter and the philosophers stone (or sorcerers stone for our friends across the pond). Basically you download it, burn it to CD and play it while watching the DVD. A new art form, a childish gimmick or somewhere inbetween? Everybody
will have a copy soon
, so get busy with the download (courtesy of the ever vigilant Talking Tina at Sissyfight.com).

Bedroom of Helen of
PARIS: Hey, baby, I brought you a pearl necklace.
HELEN [weepy]: I can’t wear it because I’m sort of already married to that other guy but we’ve been doing the royal nasty for a week already anyway and you’re going to leave tomorrow and WAHHHHH.
PARIS: You could stow away and come with me and start a war that will end up killing 90% of the cast and totally be the downfall of my people and my kingdom!
HELEN: *sniff* I think… that’s the sweetest thing anyone’s ever said to me.

Click -- MeFites, click the link of Wolfgang's new endeavor,
murderous, doomed, that cast as Achaeans countless actors,
hurling down to the House of Death so many sturdy souls,
blonde-tressed, open-helmed *. Will careers be made carrion,
feasts for the dogs and birds,
as the time of Bush is moving toward its end?
Begin, crows, when the trailers first were aired,
Agamemnon, some guy, and Brad Pitt, Achilles.

New Zealand critic blasts LOTR
. Big budget movie special effects have overshadowed the timeless are of storytelling and character development. "..The Lord of the Rings movie trilogy is, as a work of cinematic art, ham-fisted, shallow, bombastic and laughably overrated.." [More Quotes inside]

Dramatic Climate Change.
The director who brought us aliens blowing up the White House
has now turned his sights on climate change. In a very dramatic way. Will this highly sensationalized and unrealistic presentation of global warming have any impact on public attitudes? Are we looking at a possible a tipping point, or is director Roland Emmerich jumping the shark?

Harold and Maude. We hold on his wretched face as his mother's hysterical cries are heard in the background. Harold moves his head and listens. He breaks into a sly, satisfied grin.
