I recently found some bizarre footage from the set of Predator 2, and have been trying to pass it off as being from the upcoming Robert Rodriguez film Predators, cuz I'm a jerk like that. Alexa suggested some minor changes that she thought might improve it, so I spent a few minutes figuring out how Windows Movie Maker works. (Easy to make something crappy, hard to make something nice.)
Here's the result, which I think you'll agree is a significant improvement.
Today while thinking of Arlen Specter, two trains of thought did quite a bit of rambling from place to place: first I began to wonder if he was bald, then eventually my thought train got to the concept of a hypothetical future where baldness is in fact the sexiest one could get. This made me think of marketing bald caps to those who want the sexy bald look, but dont want the hassle of constant upkeep (shaving your head daily is a pain in the ass.)
These convergent thought trains eventually came together in a spectacular collision and all at once I had one of those glorious "eureka" moments. You know the kind, where something becames startlingly clear?. See, I've always had an interest in alien visitation phenomena, so I'm constantly thinking about "greys" in the back of my head and today was no exception. In a blink of an eye, I suddenly had the answer to all the similar sketches people from around the world have drawn of "alien" visitors: Phil Spector in a bald cap.
EDIT 5/18/07: I realized I spelled Phil's name wrong, making the number of hits this is getting somewhat miraculous. Maybe now that the trial's in the news and I've spelled his name properly, more people may come this way.
Saturday night marked the debut of the latest of the SciFi Channel Original movies, entitled Alien Apocalypse.
One part Planet of the Apes, one part Wizard of Oz and a healthy dose of Battlefield Earth is the easiest way to describe it.
Bruce Campbell stars alongside a crew of expendable minorities who die in the first 5 minutes, about 50 different people in tattered clothes with bad facial hair and horrible overdubbing and a handfull of cheesy computer animated alien termites referred to as 'Mites. I assume the audio was completely shot because every line was overdubbed. Everyone that wasn't Bruce was seemingly dubbed by the same person - just slight variations of different "voices" and accents to throw off the viewer, Muppet style.
