http://rrrick.stumbleupon.com/ I’ve unfairly avoided reviewing Rrrick’s pages (probably because I can’t look straight at his worrisome avatar) for ages. Now, with plenty of time to kill at work (ahem) I have sufficiently trolled his archive to know that, yes, a big, hearty thumbs-up is deserved. **BUMPITY BUMP** Thumbs up all around – not only does […]

http://www.nytimes.com/aponline/arts/AP-People-Paul-Newman.html A longtime neighbor and business partner of Paul Newman has told The Associated Press the 83-year-old actor is battling cancer. A thumbs-up not for the horrible, wasting disease that is plaguing him, but for Paul Newman in general: A fabulous actor, an A-1 goof, a devoted husband, humanitarian,and some of the best thinking-woman’s eye […]
http://www.sleeponthegreatwall.com/qtvr/great_wall_jinshanling_sunset.html The first time I encountered a QTVR (QuickTime Virtual Reality) movie, my mind was officially blown. Thinking back now, though, the early versions were blocky, pixellated, jumpy and basically products of their time. Now, with better cameras and smoother processing, we get this. My mind is officially pink-misted.
http://www.apple.com/trailers/universal/leatherheads/medium.html When he’s not travelling through Darfur, he’s making (that’s directing and starring in!) slapstick movies. Clooney’s in full goof mode here. May even be worth sitting through a Renee Zellweger performance! I can’t wait.
http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20080118/en_nm/un_messengers_clooney_dc_2 Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon named actor George Clooney, who has campaigned for refugees in Darfur, as a U.N. “messenger of peace” on Friday to promote the world body’s peacekeeping efforts. World body, indeed. FWAH! Clearly, the UN is trying to increase its quota of women staffers. I’m desperately hunting for an application form myself.
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/arts/main.jhtml?xml=/arts/2007/09/30/sv_peterserafinowicz.xml I’m on a Peter Serafinowicz roll. Here’s a good Telegraph article introducing him (for those who don’t yet know him) and giving some idea of his gift for mimicry.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9froOhQ6Vb8 One of my celebrity crushes, Peter Serafinowicz, was recognised as a talented, sexy man, and given his own BBC show. And it’s hilarious. Brief sample enclosed. (Think, “cleanliness is next to lawlessness”…)
http://www.apple.com/trailers/thinkfilm/theten/trailer/ This looks like it will be equal parts squirm-inducing and pants-wetting. But as Liev Schreiber and Paul Rudd continue to rock my world, I will happily sit (or fast-forward, more like) through the squick.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O8JmN_-oudY Kevin Spacey isn’t quite at Clooney level for me, but he’s cute, talented, and is clearly on the right side of nuts. Here, he does about 10 impersonations (at the behest of the impersonation-loving acting snob James Lipton) that are totally bang-on. It’s like he’s channelling Pacino and Walken. Love it!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bnK0T0M-d9I Last Luckies video of the day – I promise (mainly because there’s slim pickings on YouTube!) This is an interesting one, though, showcasing the entire band (except for Louis, but he’s relatively new anyway) in a great venue, with a song (“Great Lengths”) whose “punchline” only revealed itself to me when seen live. It’s […]
