There's supposedly some bizarre site called "Channel 101" (www.channel101.com) where people submit small video ideas for comedies... and there's more on www.channel102.com. Sample shows: House of Cosbys, about a remote compound inhabited by Billy Cosby clones; Cat News - where the newscasters are, yes, cats; and The Jogger, who has all sorts of adventures, including falling in and out of love, while never stopping his morning jog. Very strange...
A great description of Johnny Depp in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory: "Johnny Depp acts like a 19th-century vampire who is halfway through a sex change" - *L*! Hmmm... that covers the interests of a whole range of my f-list... *G*.
Apparently there's some series called "ROME" coming on HBO on Aug. 28... heard anything about it, anima_mecanique?
And, anonypooh? I finally saw Jasper Fforde's name in print! I didn't realize he wrote books where "a winsome detective named Thursday Next (her son's name is Friday) jumps in and out of great literature trying to rescue kidnapped characters and mend broken narratives, while Uriah Heep, Miss Havisham, and Hamlet stray from their pages into a warped, satirical facsimile of our world." *G* Sounds very Douglas Adams-ish! *G*
So... I just love that a magazine seems to mirror my fandoms and the interests of my LJ-fans. I think I'll keep it. *G*
