Don points to an idiotic advertisement in the Hollywood Reporter which essentially advocates censorship. Even though I don't smoke and have no intention of starting and don't want kids to smoke, I don't think censorship is the answer. Censorship is a bad thing.
Apparently censorship of movies is a big thing in the UK, and a guy named Charlie Lyne got tired of it. The BBFC (the censors) have committed to watching every minute of every film submitted to them, so Lyne raised about 6000 pounds with a kickstarter to create a 10 hour movie of paint drying. Which he has now submitted for certification.
This, of course, is a truly masterful troll.

UPDATE: They say that Oshiete! Galko-chan is a short. That makes a lot more sense; it's a really threadbare concept for full-length episodes.

He says that "Kono Subarashii Sekai and so on" (Wed, Jan 13) is about panty shots and gainaxing. The skirts do seem criminally short on the one with blue hair. Maybe I should give it a one-episode look-see. It could be worth following, with the sound turned off and the subtitles disabled -- especially if it runs on AT-X.

Bill Irwin is a very talented man. He graduated from Clown College, and was one of the performers who became known as the "New Vaudevillians" along with Avner the Eccentric and The Flying Karamazov brothers, among others.
In 1982 he created a stage performance called "The Regard of Flight" and I videotaped it when it was broadcast on PBS's "Great Performances". I can't tell you how many times I watched it, but every time I did I laughed a lot. It's difficult to describe, nor would I describe it even if I could -- for much of the humor comes from the unexpected. But it's probably been 25 years since the last time, and even so I've never forgotten it.
It occurred to me this afternoon that someone might have posted it to Youtube so I took a look, and there it was! It's 45 minutes and you will not regret watching it!

Step 1: point out that the droids are effectively slaves.
Step 2: Contend that Chewbacca is female, and in love with Han.
There's going to be a new Munchkin addition called "StarMunchkin" and this is one of the cards. Kovalic is right in the groove, as usual.
