Safer sex through Animation


Love is in the air.

I found this cartoon/music video/public service announcement and find it to be very amusing. At least enough to share with you all. It's about 11 mb and is Quicktime.
WARNING: Not school or work safe. It contains animated nudity and sexual scenarios (Duh).

I don't know what it about that song but I can't get it out of my head.

Download the clip. (http://movies.collegehumor.com/media/movies/20050503.mov)

Good News Everyone!!!


New Futurama?

Is there a future for Futurama? After all Family Guy has returned from FOX's cancelled Graveyard. With good ratings on Adult Swim and excellent DVD sales, FOX has raised an interested eyebrow in Futurama's direction.


Here's the news from gotfuturama.com
"
Over the last week, several sources from within the animation business have indicated to us that there is renewed talk at FOX about bringing fresh Futurama content directly to DVD. We corroborated this with other sources close to the show before publishing the information. The talk is of course still in a preliminary stage. Options reported to us include one or more Futurama movies in case of a go-ahead. Even though Futurama is not sure to return and the likelihood of its return is currently unknown, this is the first time in the past few years that we have heard of Futurama being discussed at the upper levels of FOX."


And here is a message from Billy West (voice of Fry) himself . . .
"
Well, I spoke to David X.Cohen because we did promos for a new Futurama compilation and he said that they did have talks with the top guys at FOX and they were extremely impressed with the sales of the Futurama DVDs. The idea was to make a Futurama movie right to DVD and then a 2nd and a 3rd. That's what's being discussed. Fox is trying to figure out a budget for the whole project, and it sounded like David X. was very jazzed! I would love more than anything to do that show again. I thought it was best experience on every level... creatively, voice-wise, writing, animation and the laughs. The laughs. Writers and performers that respected each other."

Tetris Shelving


Tetris . . . In your own living room!

Thanks to Jen for finding this! Re-arrangable wooden tetris shaped shelving, how sweet is that? Go to this site to see how you can own these wonderful shelves (I hope you have $6790 to drop). http://www.inhabitat.com/entry_23.php
My only fear is that I would make a straight line and my shelves would dissappear!Posted by Hello

Time To Vote!!!!!

Summer is HERE! And as I mentioned earlier I am planning a trip to the Georgetown Twin Drive-in Theater. What I want from you all is to vote for one of the following movies. Which one would you like to see at the drive-in. (And remember the drive-in shows 2 movies for one price, so it's possible that 2 of the chooices are playing).

  • Batman Begins (June 15th)
  • Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (July 15th)
  • Fantastic Four (July 8th)
So let me know so I can start planning. (Also the relase date is not neccessarily when we would go.)
