This is a fun short film created by students at Media Design School in New Zealand.

And some of the students talk about making the film:

Doesn't Miley Cyrus look like...?

Via CocoPerez
This morning, when I saw a clip of Miley Cyrus at one of the Oscar parties, I didn't even recognize her at first. In fact, I wondered if Madonna had found a time machine in the 80's and jumped forward.

I guess Madonna went through her Marilyn Monroe phase, Miley can go through her Madonna phase...

And I just have to add my opinion on Miley's dress. Although I give her points for not going with something revealing, the dress looks far too old for her. It looks like something made for Joan Collins (and Joan would probably rock this dress. But for a barely-twenty pop starlet, it's just not the thing.)

Mal vs. Hammer, Indy vs. Han...

By Gina Biggs
A friend shared this cartoon on Facebook, and I love it. I have to say, that IS what would happen should Captain Mal meet Captain Hammer. (Just in case you're not familiar with Firefly or Dr. Horrible, I'll let you in on the joke: Nathan Fillion played both characters).

So, that got me thinking, and reminded me of this picture I saw on Flickr awhile ago as part of JD Hancock's "Duel 365" series:

Han Solo vs. Indiana Jones (7/365)

What would happen if Indiana Jones met Han Solo? I mean there is this scene:

So, how do you think it would go down?

Downton Abbey Paper Dolls - Adorable & Funny!

I found these paper dolls by Kyle Hilton via Jane Austen's World. I just love the "assortment of emotions" for the Dowager Countess:

Jane Austen's World has gathered links to the paper dolls of other characters (Mary & Matthew, Lady Sybil, and Thomas & O'Brien) here: Downton Abbey Season 2 Finale: Tonight You’re Mine Completely. I think I'll be printing all of these out & having a good ol' time playing paper dolls (no, I have not outgrown that. I don't think I ever will.)

Just an hour and a bit until the season finale!

Happy Valentine's Day...from Valentine!

I found a special treat in the mail yesterday: My parents sent us all valentines postmarked in Valentine, NE!

There's even a special image stamped on the back of the envelope:

This is so cool! Thanks, Mom & Dad!

(If you want to do this for your valentine next year, here's how.)
