"She’s a girl and she’s GONE!
Gone Girl, Rated R”

"Remember *that* girl? Now she’s GONE!
Gone Girl, Rated R”

"Once, there was a girl. Now, there’s not!
Gone Girl, Rated R.”

The full array of Boogie Nights’ emotions all over these 2 minutes of Inherent Vice.

Why Tolkien decided to adapt the 2 hour film The Treasure of the Sierra Madre to a 1k+ pages book is a mystery as big as “why the eagles didn’t drop the hobbits at the mountain in the first place?”. But watch both versions thinking about Gollum as Humphrey Bogart and Humphrey Bogart as Gollum to add extra layers of enjoyment.


The guy who came up with the idea to place a full drum set in the middle of a pool for Oasis’s Don’t Look Back in Anger video: you’re one of my favourite idiots from the 1990s.

The 1st big story about Inherent Vice in today’s NY Times

The following sentence deserves a sounding sploosh:

"It’s a stoner detective film so overstuffed with visual gags and gimmicks that the filmmaker said he was inspired by slapstick spoofs like ‘Top Secret’ and ‘Airplane’.”

Mark Twain taking the piss out of medieval England in The Prince and the Pauper is my new jam:

"By the law of England may a child enter into covenant and sell itself to the devil, my lord?" asked Tom, turning to a learned judge.

"The law doth not permit a child to make or meddle in any weighty matter, good my liege, holding that its callow wit unfitteth it to cope with the riper wit and evil schemings of them that are its elders. The devil may buy a child, if he so choose, and the child agree thereto, but not an Englishman - in this latter case, the contract would be null and void.”

"It seemeth a rude and unchristian thing, and ill contrived, that English law denieth privileges to Englishmen, to waste them on the devil!" cried Tom, with honest heat.

You’re The Worst season finale: that fish joke finaly sealed its position right by Broad City as things we’ll forever think of fondly.


Random reminder: the whole art of MUSIC in one of its glorious peaks.

A great lesson on gimmicks

If United 93 wasn’t so invested in shaky cams, it would be just like another Christopher Guest’s.

The images above illustrate Infinite Jest’s grossest/most disturbing passages recreated in Lego. They’re really cute. It’s from this project, in which a father narrated to his 11-year-old son crucial parts of the book and the kid reproduced them in Lego form. I had to overcome my indifference to “something something into Lego” just to appreciate the oddness of a father telling his son: “now you`ll do that part where [REDACTED] commits suicide by [REDACTED] in a [REDACTED]” or “for the next image, a father [REDACTED] while placing a picture of Rachel Welch over [REDACTED]” or “and now, a dude [REDACTS IT ALL because lowest depth of disgust]”. Not to mention the one where a character smokes weed. This is ground zero for the new definition of “cool dad”. The whole project: http://www.brickjest.com/
