Alot is cute. Actually, a lot of today's post is going to be cute.

An adorable painting otter!



Indiana Bones and the Temple of Groom! Adorable.

WW3 reimagined propaganda posters. Love them.

DUDE SOME GUY BUILT A JARVIS. AND HE'S OPEN-SOURCING IT. I'MMA GONNA GIT ME ONE BRB

Oh-ho, Six Hugh Jackman period films that can be watched as Wolverine prequels. YES. Except don't go get that version of Oklahoma, it's horrible. Aunt Eller is the only one who doesn't have a horrible American accent. It's painful.

So this is kind of crazy. It's kind of awesome, because it's like HEY LOOK ALIENS TAUGHT US EVERYTHING WAIT I TOTALLY GOT YOU DIDN'T I? It's called a coincidence. A CRAZY coincidence, and an awesome one.

Well, this is... interesting... ([livejournal.com profile] astrid087 that one's for you... sort of.)

Beard trustworthiness scale, although they're forgetting a lot of important ones, like the fact that Charlie Chaplin isn't evil and Groucho has a rather famous 'stache, too.

7500 online shoppers unwittingly sold their souls! AWESOME. :D

Everybody's got a baby kangaroo! Right?



Well, you know... I want one now... :3


Looking at this image and watching Ghostbusters at the same time is creepy. If you imagine that cloud is an ever-growing cloud of Gozerian power and escaped ghosties, it's a little unsettling. Then again, as awesome as Ghostbusters is, since I've been playing the game it's become legitimately creepy. D: In a good way, though, it just makes the movie even more awesome. And I really hope they do make a third one now and that it's superb. Also, I never really noticed how amazing the soundtrack is before playing the game.

Speaking of soundtracks, Rocky & Bullwinkle has a great soundtrack but as a story suffers from being a product of the late 90's. Or early 00's. Anyway, it's more than a little bad, not to mention the animation of the cartoon... painful. Egh. However, it kind of serves to remind me how awesome the George of the Jungle movie is, that one is truly great.

The internet/home computer, as imagined in 1969:



Awesomesauce.

Can you imagine how you would feel if you were that officer? Shit.

Oh shit it's the 15th anniversary of the Indiana Jones ride at Disneyland! Sometimes it's so completely surreal that this ride is so young. Sadly, I don't think they'll bring out any really awesome new souvenirs until next year (which will be the 30th anniversary of Raiders).

Actually, just yesterday my mom and I were talking about how shocking it is to think that the "anti-vaccine" thing has only been around TEN YEARS. You'd think it's the kind of anti-intellectual argument that was maybe around pre-internet, say, from the 80's, but no, it's from like 2000. That's just crazy to me. (Thankfully, that douche got unpublished and there was only ONE paper ever published in the first place. I think they maybe even revoked his license to practice? Or tried to? Anyway, yeah, douchery.)


And finally, a literary crossover containing two of the most famous and renowned authors who ever penned the written word-- I present to you, "Green Eggs and Hamlet".

Well, I just sat down and watched Anchorman and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, both for the first time. Anchorman is definitely hilarious and I didn't realize just how often my friends quote it. (It's also hard to get over the fact that Fantana or whatever the character's name is is the same guy that's in Clueless... SO TOTALLY DIFFERENT)

And also that Becky's "Good morning, Starshine, the Earth says hello!" is from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (technically Hair, but she says it like Depp).

Dang, the new Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is actually pretty good. The storyline isn't as great as the old one, or the book, but it's still pretty good. (Also LOL Christopher Lee. I am Darth Dentist! FEEL THE WRATH OF MY LISTERINE) [EDIT: Ooh, now I have two "evil dentists" and something else to keep track of!] But it's fantastically weird and you know if there's one thing I like it's weirdness. There's some really clever stuff, too, like the 2001 parody (didn't see that one coming by a mile, lol). The music is AMAZING, I love it. It's very weird and the song parodies are HILARIOUS. Also, I love how weird Johnny Depp is. I love actors who can play characters all over the board, I really respect that because I'm very drawn to subtlety and if you're a typecast actor I don't tend to think you're a person who understands it. BUT.

It sort of feels like an excuse to show off Depp's talent, with the whole Wonka backstory, but it's not like it was bad or anything, far from. And I LOVE the way Wonka looks at the caterpillar mash in the jungle. It's pretty much taken straight from WILLIE in Temple of Doom. (No shit! I was like. Wait, they're not going to--no, they wouldn't, I mean, it's a jungle and nowadays jungle is like automatic Indiana Jones, but, I mean this is like total Willie set-up, they wouldn't, right--OMGTHEYSOWENTFORIT) And MAD PROPS to Deep who played ALL the Oompa Loompas. He's a total star on his own. Skillz and love. He had to learn an ass-lot for that role, TOTAL FUCKING PROPS.

(Also, why does no one do The Great Glass Elevator? I love that book. I WANT ME SOME VERMICIOUS KNIDS.)

Basically I should have been studying all day, and... yeah, I didn't.

Ooh, something I found that I thought someone might be interested in: some photos from 1957.

Man, you guys get like three Indiana Jones facts tonight! I'm spoiling you.

79 days until Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull! Today's trivia: OMG ALFRED MOLINA

WTF WHY DO YOU GUYS NOT PASS THESE THINGS ON

This is what I get for not perusing Wikipedia thoroughly.

I REALLY CAN'T GET OVER THIS ONE

I MEAN SERIOUSLY SNIDELY WHIPLASH

I LOVE DUDLEY DO-RIGHT

now they are inexorably linked in my mind

SERIOUSLY OH MY GOD
