I have to credit this entirely to ‘The 10 Most Visually Stunning Movies of the Last Ten Years’ but I was so taken with the idea – I like movies, adore them – addicted to them, but I love film trailers more – I’ve always been inspired by them and in fact would prefer to sit and watch 2 hours of trailers then a film. Alas inject a little fantasy into your day and watch the trailers of the rundown of what are, some very beautiful pieces of work.



Speed Racer


The Fall


Sin City


The Matrix Reloaded


What Dreams May Come








The Fountain

There you have it – an interesting mix and hopefully a successful (note my mood) filler post due to strep throat making me a little worse for wear – Anyho have a nice day, or tomorrow – ah hell, have a nice week. 1

Homosexual sex is the biological equivalent of apple pie. April 4, 2009

“Today, I handed my PhD dissertation, which I have spent the past year researching and writing full-time. Last night, my roommate set an autocorrect on Word that changed “neither” to “nigger.” I didn’t notice until after I handed it in. My professor is black. FML” Courtesy of Fmylife.

Animals can be gay: if you needed any more proof then Legally Blonde 2 (seen below), here’s two gay bunnies in their life long love and obsession for each other.

And actually, since Mint Chip Monkey likes to educate the masses (all 2 of you that read this blog), here’s an excerpt from Petter Bøckman, the scientific adviser of the exhibition Against Nature?.

“When the exhibit originally launched, scientists had witnessed and documented homosexuality in nearly 500 species of animals, with over 1500 species being observed acting in a homosexual manner. Many herding animals solve conflicts by practicing same gender sex, while some species of monkeys (bonobos) use homosexual sex as a form of a handshake.”

It’s not really homosexuality though is it,  if  it’s because of behavioral patterns and what-not.? Nope for animals to be actually gay I’d say they have to be sexually ‘attracted’ to the same gender. More researching (Basically shifting though the actual articles and the links to animal porn on google) shows that scientists believe ‘every species’ (though I can’t see that they’ve actually gone through every species on the planet) has ‘gay members’. Thing is, they still don’t know why – which inevitably has lead to this;

“According to Roughgarden, sexual selection can’t explain the homosexuality that’s been documented in over 450 different vertebrate species. This means that same-sex sexuality—long disparaged as a quirk of human culture—is a normal, and probably necessary, fact of life. “

Which has lead to my favourite quote of the day:

“As this list of activities suggests, having homosexual sex is the biological equivalent of apple pie: Everybody likes it.”

In fact, it would seem like Humans are the only species to have ‘members’ that see anything wrong with homosexual sex. What a bunch of weirdos.

In other news, I was actually going to talk about The 30-Second Bunnies Theatre Library, which is an awesome website, especially for lazy film lovers like myself where they now have 54 videos in 30 second bunny form and with Harry Potter and Twilight soon to be joining the gallery. Very funny – definitely worth keeping tabs on future releases.

Geronimooooooooo! x
