All Hallow's a Little Early

Just wanted to share this, the first pumpkin of the season. This one was K's's Mumbles from the upcoming movie Happy Feet. Yeah, I know, jumping the gun a bit, since it isn't even in theatres until November.

So why Mumbles? I was feeling charitable, so I let her pick the design. She wanted a Pug dog. I refused. We settled on this instead. The girl likes penguins, what can I say? Enjoy!

Who knows, since we did this so early, I might have another pumpkin to post before Hallowe'en.

I spilled donair sauce into my keyboard today. Don't tell anyone.

I was trying to write an email and eat the donair at the same time. It was the wrong thing to do. So now there's dried donair sauce underneath the keys, where it pooled up. I'm trying to come up with some kind of plan to get it outta there.

I think the worst thing about this is that the smell of the donair sauce wafting up from my keyboard is making me hungry for another donair.

Angry Read of the Day

As some of you know, once upon a time, I was part of a small collective of writers who spent small amounts of time writing angry, scathing, yet funny reviews of movie trailers. It was a great idea: the trailers were available for download online, for free, and the bland, derivative, and predictable movies out there (which is most of them in the theatres, at any given time) could be summed up pretty easily by their trailer alone. The site was called The Trailer Trash, and it was the creation of one of my former roommates, Jay Pinkerton. Jay was also the co-editor of the newspaper I edited in my final year at school.

Jay's brilliant, by the way -- one of the most gifted comedy writers I have ever known. Since then, he's gone on to semi-internet-stardom with his site and is now one of the editors and major contributors for the relaunched Cracked magazine. I've given him kudos before, but what's one more time, for good measure? I'm real proud of him, and Jay, if you ever check in here anymore, congrats on your recent engagement!

Anyway, the reason I'm bringing all of this up is that I found a kind of interesting movie review site today that I thought I'd share with you. It's called "Pajiba - Scathing Reviews for Bitchy People," and although it's not as funny as Jay's old site, it makes up for it in vitriol. Check it out here.

I think that's the most hyperlinks I've ever put into a single post.
