The top part was purchased as-is on Ebay for $20. All I added was the baby formula can-stand.

Hey Raschied,

You know that absinthe fountain you built
a few months back? How did you do it?
I remember something about you getting the top
part on ebay. Ok, what did you search for?
I mean, every time I search "fountain" on ebay,
I get like 900 hits of those tabletop business park-like
fountains. What is that thing you have on
your homemade called? I mean, sans the babyfood
label, it looked pretty good. Did you take that
label off the can? Anyhow, I am just wondering
because the F. Guy fountain with the lid and all
that looks so awesome that BETTY of all people
is selling is rather pricey. But isn't everything
she sells? I mean, $140 for a bottle of Un
Emile is a bit much. And yeah, that's an understatement.

The reason making the Kessel Run in 3 1/2 parsecs is such a big deal is that the Kessel run is one loaded with Black Holes. Most slower ships need to take a long, carefully plotted out course over 10 parsecs long. The Falcon was fast enough to skirt the black holes, and make the shortest Kessel Run ever.

Oh? Sorry! My Inner Geek is showing....

I took head on a recent excursion to Point Reyes and, being the 2nd foggiest point in the U.S. it was deeply encased in spooky fog the entire time we were there. Head even climbed down the 30 stories worth of steps to see the light house, me and about 283743 other people declined.

We of course went and rented The Fog as soon as we got home.

Awesome day.

won't that do? or is it just too "universal studios"?

I am more willing to forgive the outright fantastic than the merely inconsistant or sloppy. I spent a lot of time nit-picking the inconsistencies and historican and medical inaccuracies of the crucifixion narratives on the Gospels, for instance, but ingnored the whole resurrection thing.

Ya know, I saw that movie when it first came out, (or probably a year or so later). Holy Fuck, that changed the whole concept of cinema in my young mind. Probably changed my whole world-view.

It's ok, Bescançon.

I think films are magical.





Up until Crosby starts telling me

My problem is, if the dude was in a coma for 28 days while everybody was dying and zombifying, who was changing his IV fluids? He'd have died 4 days after the last nurse stopped showing up for work...

The DVD has an alternate ending which isn't exactly apocalyptic, but is quite a bit less hopeful than the theatrical release. I won't give it away, but it implies that the guy is dead and the foxy black girl has gone insane...

Totally, the first 5 minutes of the film I knew it would translate better to the large small screen in my living room.

But after it leaves the overlit ambiance of the first 20 minutes, I forgot all about that vidcam feeling as it becomes less of an issue as the film moves into night.

I thought it was brilliant, but should have ended more apocalyptically.

It was absolutely brilliant. Better than Dawn of the Dead because of the creative restraint it showed (and of course had a little nod to Day of the Dead's Bub with the captured zombie). It also achieved a disorientating effect I hadn't felt in a film since Alien.
The only criticism, is I think it's actually better viewed on DVD than film (it's available in PAL), as when the DV footage is blown up on a big screen it loses the sharp edges, and the sharp edges are what makes it so gritty and brutal.

So... when I first heard of this movie
all I heard was TRAINSPOTTING and then
some discussion of zombie movies. I thought
"Yeah, I guess Trainspotting was sort of a
zombie movie... fer DRUGGIES!!!!" Oh but I
heard wrong.

Emmy suggested we (Kallisti, Morrigan, Mr. Mo'
and hizzelf) go see this movie.

The Brits sure know how to depict the end of
the world. I was reminded immediately of that
movie from the 80's called THREADS. I had
apocalypse nightmares for years after that.


My Official Review
Dig this, it's a cool movie, you fuckers.
GO SEE IT NOW!!!!
