For whatever reason, the notion of Michael Bay on a safari amuses me.
Wait, what? Is there any truth to this?
And in attendance for the early screening was Johnson’s pal and recently moved-to-Frisco Shane Carruth, whose Primer, you’ll no doubt recall, picked up two significant prizes at Sundance in ‘04 and from whom we haven’t heard much of late. But till the wee small hours of this morning, Carruth laid out the details of his Grand Jury Prize-winner’s follow-up, about which, sadly, nothing can be said at this point. Alas, it will be worth the wait — however long that’ll be. Incidentally, Johnson points our direction to this Primer timeline — which is either five years too late or three years too early, depending upon how many times you’ve seen Carruth’s time-bender and tried to figure out what happens when and to whom and whyohwhy.” —
lowindustrial’s talk of ADHD medication inspired to Google Blog Search “Shane Carruth,” which led me to stumble upon this awesome-ish news.
Peter Serafinowicz, an actor, says there’s a perfectly good explanation for his tweet — “Went to the gym this morning. As I left, everyone said I was the best!” — an observation that earned him a spot on the site’s all-time-worst list. “At my local gym, most of the guys (losers) are jealous of me, as (I don’t wish to boast) I’m in great shape. I’m pretty sure that they call me names when I’m not around,” he wrote in an e-mail. So when his gym mates congratulated him for bench-pressing 180 lb., “I suppose I felt vindicated in some way and wanted to tell the world about it.” —
This is the best.
For those that don’t get it: Comedian Peter Serafinowicz was joking, which the Time writer couldn’t discern.
The June Gloom sets in a couple of days earlier than usual. It doesn’t make sense. It’s not going to make sense and you know for as liberal as everyone makes California out to be, it’s not really that liberal. Yes, the cities along the coast are rather liberal, but there’s a whole miserable stretch of land beyond the beaches and fancy cars filled with dirt, tumbleweeds and triple digit temperatures on the regular that’s just as conservative as they come.
That Golden State shine is fading away. Even the bears are embarrassed to be associated with California today.
An attempt to import ecstasy inside a smiling Mr Potato Head toy has been foiled by Customs officers at the Sydney International Mail Centre.
Almost 300 grams of ecstasy was found when officers selected a parcel containing children’s toys for examination.
Upon opening the parcel, Customs officers were greeted with the smiling face of the popular children’s toy.
When a panel from Mr Potato Head’s back was removed, a quantity of MDMA (ecstasy) tablets was found in a small taped bag concealed in the cavity space.” —Mr Potato Head is Mr Ecstasy Head - National - smh.com.au
The Irish rock musician and political activist beat a retreat back to London at the weekend after cancelling concerts in Milan and Rome because too few fans had bought tickets.
Only 45 people turned up on Friday at Milan’s Civic Arena for a performance by the 51-year-old singer and songwriter. The venue has a capacity of 12,000.
Geldof refused to go on stage once he realised the dismally small number of people waiting to hear him perform. Before taking a taxi back to his hotel to pack his bags, he stopped to placate those who had turned up by signing autographs and having his photograph taken.
“There aren’t the right conditions for a concert, it’s not our fault,” Geldof is reported to have told the small but angry crowd gathered outside.” —
Am I a bad person because I find this news story hilarious?
