The Dead Twelve Milkmen Monkeys

As I was watching this video and feeling like I was kneeling on the carpet in my parents’ living room, something struck me as kind of odd. I was looking at the background, at where the band was recording this video.


E.T. and Yoda Exist in the Same Universe

The kicker of all this is, while Yoda and ET exist in the same universe, that very same universe is one where Star Wars exists also as a fictional movie, with its own merchandise (and Halloween masks). Which kind of makes my head spin around, in a fun way.


The Cabin in the Woods

I was really taken with “The Cabin in the Woods” the first time I saw it. I’m a fan of Joss Whedon’s writing, and though I’m not much into horror movies… this one was really fun.


The Making of Tarantino’s “Pulp Fiction”

But the article isn’t all trivia-focused. Seal winds up tracing the history of how the film came to be – descrbing the roles of various actors, movie studios, and producers along the way. One of the more pleasurable elements of reading about the film’s history is in imagining a different cast – hearing about other actors who could have potentially played one of the major characters (sidenote: I’d love to see a movie featuring Matt Dillon with Tarantino’s dialogue).


The Paper Chase – Contracts

Appropriate that I post this, as I’ve been spending most of the day working on putting together and playing around with fake contracts.

I love this movie, in kind of the same way I love Dead Poets Society – a classic movie about school and studying. So dated, and so terrific.
