That's freaking creepy man. I'm realling loving Christopher Nolan's vision right now. "Batman Beyond" was damn near perfection, and "The Dark Knight" is shaping up to be just as good.(Don't worry, I'm keeping my expectations in check. Hi Spidey 3, I see you there.)
For those not well versed in the art of the internets, here's where that image came from.
The Dent site (as in Harvey Dent...aka Two Face...or is it 2Face kinda like 2Pac? hmmm...anyway) appeared normally, then there was an alternate site where the Joker was meant to have hacked and manipulated Dent’s campaign image. Beneath it the Joker face was slowly revealed over the course of the weekend, pixel by pixel. Above is the final product.
A few days later, the I Believe in Harvey Dent Too was changed to say "page not found" on the website. If you highlight the black background and collect the letters that aren't H and A, the hidden letters spell out "See you in December" There, I just saved you about 30 minutes.
Now here's a look of the Joker in action. Not a super revealing shot, but you didn't expect them to actually show you the Joker so early in production of the movie did you? Silly. Notice that f'in smile that seems to go to his ears. By the way, damn that camera is big. But of coursewe all know that size doesn't matter.
Take a look at one of the "henchman". Damn, now I'm beginning to see why some people are scared of clowns. Still, I'll continue to point and laugh at them because they are inferior people.
Notice the "IMAX" tag in the corner? Yup, they're shooting a few scenes in the movie specifically for IMAX. Cool eh?

A New Sith, or Revenge of the Hope. Reconsidering Star Wars IV in the light of I-III
Well it seems that somebody put some thought into that article. This is something that I had read about earlier in the year (1.23.07....yea, why didn't I put that up earlier? Or did I? Time to check the archives...). Guess now would be as good as any time to share. Better late than never...or some other cliche you feel would be appropriate.
Some of my personal highlights from the article that made me laugh.
Then, on the verge of escape, Vader himself turns up only yards from both of his children, one of whom is leaking Force all over the place.
Chewie's first problem is what is happening between Luke and Leia. With a psychic link they can feel but don't understand, thrown together in a life-or-death escape, they are looking at each other with a sparky intensity that Chewie gradually recognises as Romantic Tension. He's no expert on human relationships but Chewie is fairly sure that that's Wrong, so he does the only thing he can under the circumstances - he throws Han at her. Han is at first not interested but after a while starts to warm to the idea with an intensity that gives Chewie new worries.
I dig the art style although the "human" characters do look a little weird. Yoda seems to resemble the Clone War Cartoons the most.
Now the YouTube embed for the lazy (although I recommend going through the link posted above, for quality reasons).
Yea, just do a Google Search for her name and see how many hits show up (188,000...looks like I'm becoming part of the problem instead of the solution...my mom would be soo proud!) No Seriously. This 18 year old (I think...shit I hope or else this is a little weird) from Newport, California (damn, I really wish I had grown up around there) has been appearing on message boards across the interweb. Her picture showed up at a few message boards I read and these boards are nowhere related.
A Facebook Group dedicated to her.
A MySpace Group dedicated to her.
Now for the pics, cause I mean really, the blog post looks weird with no pictures.
My favorite and the most popular one. She almost looks like a superhero.
Damn girl, been working out those traps?
Flying through the air upside down? Maybe she is a superhero. This one actually looks like fun. I wonder what she's thinking at this point.
I imagine this is the hardest part to get used to in polevault. For the rest of your Stokke fix, JACKPOT! A collection of pictures.
Hey waddya know, there's even a YouTube video where she's interviewed. No wonder this girls famous.
Cute girl. Is it me or does she kinda talk outta the side of her mouth? No big deal.
...and now it makes headlines that she doesn't like the attention. RAH-ROO!
Now with all that attention, is she actually a good pole vaulter? Seems so. The article linked above says she won the state competition (California) in 2004. Can't seem to find anything more recent. She's cleared at least 13"-6" as a freshman, which is pretty damn good considering the 2004 Olympic winner in Athens was Yelena Isinbayeva (Rus) with a height of 4.91m (16.1 feet....for those of you who can't do the conversion in your head. I can which makes me better than you. Eat it!). Oh by the way, did you see where it said she's a 4.0 student?
I'm mixing a quote from one movie with a image from another? Different directors, although the common element might have been that Tarrantino produced both of them. Either way, i think it's a kickass image. I may play with the colors a little bit, but still, they've made it easy for me to upload a header image. Cool stuff. Now I'm off to edit a few more things on the blog like the playlist, pile of shame and removing my awesomeness rating, since apparently that website is now defunct.
Not so awesome Sunday afternoon edit. I've check my blog (how vain does that sound?...wait, did I just use the word vain...damnit) and it seems that my little picture/header update seems all F'ed in the A when viewed in Firefox and in the new IE. Not sure why.
Oh yea, I also thought about changing the title of this post, but I can't think of anything else besides "Do You See What I DID Here?" and I don't want to wear that out.

Wow! Seems my opinion differs a little bit from how Hayden Panettiere feels about it. Well I wonder how she feels about....you know what....nevermind. I'm not that clever, so here are some pics of her licking stuff. Yea, that's right she licks stuff. Why? I dunno. My guess is she's on something. She's gotta be right? Who in their right mind would lick the Stanley Cup? Has she seen what happens when people win that thing? I'm just looking out for her. She won't be licking for long if she puts it in the wrong places. (f'in quotable line if I ever saw one)
Can't blame her for this one. I mean she's got the right idea, it's just that she's a little impatient and can't wait to take the wrapper off. Like when Cinnaburst gum first came out and you could convince people to eat that "waxy" paper that came with the gum. Fun times...
Eh, I got nothin' for this one except that "there's fucking 2 of them!"
Um, yes that's very nice.... Now smell her a little...wait we're way past that stage.
Alright, now back to the important stuf...yea, whatever. I couldn't finish that sentence either. Season 1 of Heroes was fantastic and was my second favorite show this year behind Friday Night Lights. I'm really looking forward to the HD DVD release just to rewatch them all in HD. That and not having to wait weeks for the next episode will be great.
The pics, well that was a lame excuse to post pictures of the girl just licking stuff. Hell, do I even need a reason to post pictures of hot blondes licking stuff? Yea, I thought soo.

Once you click the big red button that says "Get Your Free Robot"
Fuck it. I'll just quote the entire article.
Actress Kate Beckinsale says she is being starved of sex because her director husband has been too busy working.
The Underworld star said Len Wiseman had become a "virtual stranger" while working on the new Die Hard film.
Wiseman, 34, has been editing and directing Live Free or Die Hard, which sees Bruce Willis return to action as popular hard man John McClane and tackle an internet-based terrorist organisation.
"I've told him he is going to have to make it up to me. I won't let him out of bed for a month," the 33-year-old told a Sunday magazine.
Beckinsale will next appear in Vacancy, a thriller, alongside Luke Wilson. The film is out in cinemas from June 15.
Um...what? You're kidding right? Her?
What a way to start the week.
God I must of pissed somebody off high up in the food chain. I really need to pull a "My Name is Earl" and even my karma score. I think I may be busy this weekend curing cancer or some shit like that. That should help right? I mean no matter how in the red you are, (and apparently I'm in more trouble than I thought) curing cancer is the game winner.
Ok, that's it for now. Time to try and look/act busy.

Ever look closely at the "FedEx" logo? I never noticed it until a few days ago, when somebody inadvertantly pointed it out like it was no big deal. Now, it's the first thing I look for, like that one truck is going to be different from the rest. It's becoming compulsive, like when a friend points out a mistake in a movie, and from that point on, that's the only thing you notice in that scene. Thanks alot asshole!
Oh yea, in case you haven't gotten it yet, there's an arrow between the "E" and the "x". Pretty clever, eh?. According to Wikipedia (love that site!...well why don't you marry it? I would if I could, but I can't, so I won't)
FedEx is now organized into operating units, each of which has its own version
of the wordmark, designed by Lindon Leader of Landor Associates. In all versions, the Fed is purple. The Ex is in a different color for each division. The corporate wordmark uses a grey Ex. The original "FedEx" logo saw the Ex in orange; it is now
used as the FedEx Express wordmark. The award winning FedEx wordmark is notable for containing a white, almost subliminal, right-pointing arrow between the "E" and the "X".
Wiki never lies...
It also has a link to an interview with the creator of the logo Lindon Leader.
10:20 -- The Mavs take Maurice Ager at No. 28. He puts his head in his hands and starts sobbing hysterically as his entourage congratulates him. It's about time we had some emotion tonight, dammit. Ager walks up to the stage in a triple-breasted, oversized beige suit, goes to shake hands with Stern and immediately gets whistled for a foul on Dwyane Wade.
I couldn't stop laughing. I liked it soo much that I even forwarded it on to my friends via email...and I rarely send forwards.
