Tarantino's Mind: A Short Film

LinkTarantino's Mind - A film buff tells a friend that he's finally broken "the code" - the mystery behind the character & story threads that bleed from one Quentin Tarantino movie or screenplay into the next. His friend is less than impressed. Starring Seu Jorge (The Life Aquatic) and Selton Mello (Tarja Preta). A short film by Brazilian directing duo 300ml.

Fellow Tarantino fans will love this.

Constantines and Feist - Islands in the Stream

LinkConstantines and Feist - Islands in the Stream - Made famous in 1983 as a duet by Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton, Islands In The Stream was originally written by the Bee Gees. A favorite of Constantines and Feist, the song was recorded together in Toronto one chilly day in early February following a game of ice hockey and a round of hot chocolates.

Thanks to Jewelgurl for tipping me off about this.

White Whine

linkEvery so often I come across a blog with a premise I wish I had thought of. Today, I discovered White Whine and wondered why the hell I didn't think of that first.

It's essentially a new white person complaint every day. Today's complaint is “My chiropractor has the worst selection of magazines in his waiting room; I mean, thanks, but I already read November’s issue of Golf…back in November!” Last week the complaint was, “It takes over 300 dollars in gas to get from Ft. Lauderdale to the Bahamas and back. If I knew that I wouldn’t have bought the damn boat, it’s cheaper to fly.”

They're all pretty funny. Here's one I can relate to. “What’s wrong with Nintendo that they can’t get enough Wii’s in for Christmas. They had the same problem last year!”

50 Most Loathsome People in America, 2007

Link50 Most Loathsome People in America, 2007 - I enjoyed this list of the 50 most loathsome people in America. #1 wasn't a surprise at all.

1. George W. Bush

Charges: Is it a civil rights milestone to have a retarded president? Maybe it would be, if he were ever legitimately elected. You can practically hear the whole nation holding its breath, hoping this guy will just fucking leave come January '09 and not declare martial law. Only supporters left are the ones who would worship a fucking turnip if it promised to kill foreigners. Is so clearly not in charge of his own White House that his feeble attempts to define himself as "decider" or "commander guy" are the equivalent of a five-year-old kid sitting on his dad's Harley and saying "vroom vroom!" Has lost so many disgusted staffers that all he's left with are the kids from Jesus Camp. The first president who is so visibly stupid he can say "I didn't know what was in the National Intelligence Estimate until last week" and sound plausible. Inarguably a major criminal and a much greater threat to the future of America than any Muslim terrorist.

Exhibit A: "And there is distrust in Washington. I am surprised, frankly, at the amount of distrust that exists in this town. And I'm sorry it's the case, and I'll work hard to try to elevate it."

Sentence: Dismembered, limbs donated to injured veterans.
