Lynching Jedi

David Lynch (Twin Peaks, Eraserhead, Blue Velvet, Inland Empire, Mulholland Drive - in short a lot of scary shit) was approached to direct Return of the Jedi by George Lucas. He refused. But if he'd said yes, I bet RotJ wouldn't be regarded as "mediocre" by people who don't know what they're talking about... as this movie proves.

PhD: The Comic

Someone sent me a link to PhD: The Comic. Now no work is done as I sit reading it and going, "Man this is so true!". Especially:-

This one was extra true in our lab:-

Dramatic Chipmunk

I'm sure I'm the only person (except maybe Horton) on the internet who hadn't seen the Dramatic Chipmunk/Prairie Dog, but I now really really want to adopt a prairie dog...

Star Wars Deleted Scenes

Jimminy Cricket - the whole Biggs subplot from Episode 4 pretty much restored. The first scenes are pretty awful but the one with Biggs at the end sure would've paid off later in the movie.
