Trailer Mashups

Some of these are awesome. All of these are stolen from trailertrasher.com

This one makes me want to watch both Star Wars and the Departed. Probably the departed first.

And it's amazing how grim Finding Nemo can be when you add Crash to it.

But the best one is the one that shows the unbeleivably violent Resevoir Ninja Turtle Dogs:

I may only go to kids movies for the rest of the year

Just found out that the trailer for Where the Wild Things Are is going to be showing before Monsters vs. Aliens which I'm seeing next weekend. I think the movie is in good hands with Spike Jonze but I have no idea how he's going to take such a short story and transform it so much. Also Max looks kind of bratty on the poster. Which you probably won't be able to see once i post this because the jpeg is huge.

Demetri Martin

is a really smart guy. I don't know how many people know this but I'm pretty sure he went to Yale and rode a unicycle and then dropped out of law school at NYU to do comedy. I can't imagine telling my parents I was doing that. But anyway a few weeks back the onion's av club interviewed him and he said some really smart things about comedy, as well as his new show, which I still have not seen. Check it out.

I loved Watchmen but...

Don't go see it unless you read the book first. You will like it far less. And that sucks. This video makes fun of people who might make that terrible, terrible mistake.

I have to link it because I can't embed it so go here

Meanwhile I need a picture to make this post look enticing.

Smart Bitches, Trashy Books

Smart girls are awesome. Smart girls writing funny book reviews about terrible books are even better.

I love Tina Fey. (I know that everyone does.)

You should read this, it's pretty great.

If you have time to waste...

Oddly enough I was feeling kind of bad about not posting, but I really haven't seen much of value recently. And it's a pretty big stretch to think that I might come up with anything on my own. Although if anyone wants to email me topics or articles to comment on, I'd be happy to do that. So I'll expect to be inundated with those soon. Anyway this video is a cool little thing to promote Art Spiegelman (the guy who wrote Maus, which is the graphic novel about the holocaust and its aftereffects that uses mice for jews, pigs for poles, cats for nazis, etc.) Wow I lost track of that sentence.. anyway its promoting Art Spiegelman's new book. And it's soundtracked by the black keys. And its pretty cool if your into good animation. Or noses.
