If you're like me, you know about this little underground series called Twilight, written by Stephenie Meyer.  But maybe you haven't actually bitten the bullet and actually read the books.  Or maybe you have read the books and loved them!  Or hated them (I sure did)!  And the thing is, it's not just the books that have been hyped to all hell lately, but also the movie.  Because Robert Pattinson is totally dreamy (if you're 14), and his hair is the perfect length for tangling your fingers in it (at least it was until he was all scampish and went and had it all buzzed off).  Sigh. But maybe you're a diehard fan of the books who doesn't want someone else's vision tainting your own mind pictures where Edward is all yours.  Or perhaps you just didn't feel like shelling out money for all the pain and embarrassment the movie might bring you (heaps, on both counts), because wasn't all of that present in spades in the books? What I'm trying to say here is that no matter what kind of fan - or non-fan! - of Twilight you are, I have a treat for you.  Click on the image below to watch a 30-second synopsis of the film as enacted by cartoon bunnies!  You get all the story in considerably less time than it would take you to read the book or watch the movie... and in the case of the latter, I'd wager the acting is better in this version anyway! (There's no hard link for this video, so hopefully clicking the pretty picture will get you what you want, but if not, it should get you to a flash player whose sidebar you can scroll through in order to find the correct video!  Link opens up in a new window.)

That's pretty funny, Wesley.

That's pretty funny, Wesley.

Last week I watched season one of Clone High. It was not  a mistake, Wesley (see, you have to be cool to get that joke!). This little gem has been kicking around our apartment for quite some time now, so at Steph’s suggestion I decided to give it a whirl. Why this show only made it through one season is a mystery to me. I suppose, like all truly funny shows, it was destined to fail. I mean, look at Arrested Development. That show was pure brilliance, and yet it didn’t make it. I suppose Family Guy did get a reprieve, but there are a lot of people (Steph) who will tell you it isn’t, and never was, funny, and I’ll admit that the new episodes are a bit self indulgent. So I guess my theory holds – anything that is actually funny does not survive in this world. (more…)
