Post about Writing Scams. Worth to read, not only for the info, but also for the plights of Ennis the Emo Unicorn:
Oh, to stab myself dead/ With this horn afixed my head.
I’m a magical creature/ A curly horn above my face/ Why won’t Katie let me past second base?
Wachowski Brothers to direct Superman? Chris Nolan already agreed to do Batman Three?
A member of the Academy walks into a bar. He starts chatting with the bartender, and the subject of who he nominated for “Best Original Song” comes up. The academy member says he really liked “Down to Earth” from “WALL-E” but couldn’t really think of anything else that was Oscar-worthy this year. Bruce Springsteen walks in and punches him in the face.
Wonderful short film:
When Miley Cyrus told news media that Angelina Jolie is her “favourite figure from history”, was it because she thinks that Jolie is Alexander the Great’s mother, Colin Farrell the King of Macedonia and Brad Pitt Achilles? Sure, why not?
Sophia Loren and Mickey Rourke were both at the Oscars ceremony. But how were we expected to tell them apart?

Scientists dance their PhDs. L., you being the only person I know working on their thesis: What would your dance look like?
12 questions for pro-lifers. Plus, added in the comments:
if a frozen embryo stays frozen for 18 years, should it be allowed to vote?
We do not know what to do with this model. We can’t file Michelle Obama under WAG; she’s no Carla Bruni but she’s not frumpy, either. These style-appreciators seem to be lauding her for her sophisticated tastes, but are in fact saying “she’s a bit like a bloke”. The conservative press deals with its unease (“Is she a woman or a whole person? So hard to say!”) by making her sound like a transvestite. And the liberal press covers its confusion (“Is she a feminist pioneer? Or just a woman?”) by getting all sociological on her ass every time she wears a dress.
Deadra recently pointed the Peters Projection out to me, an area accurate map of the world. As I had never heard of it before, I found it extremely interesting and thought I’d pass it along.
Dollhouse premiere: A mixture of what she said and what she said.Will continue to watch, but am not entirely convinced.
