Orphan Synopsis

As done by my good friend (and former teacher) Dennis – spoilers alert, but if you think you’ll never see this movie, this is the funniest synopsis I’ve read ever.  This movie rivals Wicker Man (my fav) in ridiculousness.

“If you want to write rock lyrics…

…you must learn about where the hobbits dwell.” I forgot how great Yo La Tengo’s video for Sugarcube until right now.

Mmmyyyyy hearrrrrtttttt

So maybe it’s because Em and I watched some “Say Yes to the Dress” tonight, but it might also just be that this video is fucking awesome. Thanks to Dan for showing it to me.
Also, dare you not to be crying by the end.

BREAKING NEWS UPDATE: CZ WAS AT THIS WEDDING. YOU CAN SEE HER AND HER MOM TOWARDS THE BACK. HER SISTER IS ONE OF THE BRIDESMAIDS – “the scrawny one in the red dress with shorter curly hair!”

New post for the autotune debate

The video below gives you an idea of where Jay-z stands on the issue.

I wonder if he’d feel differently if he watched autotune the news

Herb & Dorothy

I really really want to see this movie about a librarian and a postal worker who collect millions of dollars worth of minimalist/conceptual art in their tiny one bedroom apartment. Looks adorable.

Read the New York Times review of it HERE, below is the trailer.

I love ‘Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me’

…and I love Peter Sagal even more after watching this, his 1988 appearance on Jeopardy:

Dan sent that to me ages ago, but I’m just getting around to posting it now. Nora fail.

Also, I love this story he wrote for the NY Times Magazine in 2007. So adorable.

These two videos will rock your world and yeah, fuck you, one is Taylor Swift

So, these two videos are awesome. Yeah, one is Taylor Swift’s video for her song about how much she loves her mom. It makes me think about watching home videos with my dad. I love doing that. So yeah, here’s the video that will make you cry, but don’t worry, there’s a video that will make you laugh your balls or ovaries off that I posted after it.

So here’s the video that’s hilarious and probably the best video ever. So best it’s the best of everything.

Grain Edit’s interview with Frank Chimero

I’m a big fan of Frank Chimero. His state illustrations are fantastic (when’s New York, Frank? Or Vermont, or Indiana??), and I used to have this inspirational poster as my desktop at work for a while (the “Aw, Damnit” part got to me, eventually). Anyway, Grain Edit interviewed Frank recently, and it’s really fascinating. I’m not even a graphic designer or much of an artist (though I’m known to doodle geometric shapes on notebooks at work).

The whole interview is a great read, but my favorite part is when Frank describes how he comes up with the ideas for the states. Here’s an excerpt:

Here, I’m trying out a few ideas. Something long and curling? An alligator? A fish? A manatee? Nah. That manatee doesn’t look like one. It’s too skinny. Not cowish enough. Doesn’t work well with the shape. The alligator is nice, but too predictable? His legs don’t integrate in very nicely into the shape. A train? Oh. Wow. That’s nice. Maybe we can use the smoke to trail off to the left to fill that difficult space. Ok. Bingo!

So cool. Anyway, Frank also mentions this great video he did for Good Magazine. I hadn’t seen it before and I suggest you watch it both for his great drawings and for the info.
