Did you know this already, Gaya????? Just saw it on lilithlotr's LJ!
In a Flaming Lips article
Now that "Freaks" is out on DVD, Lips fans can turn their attention to the other Lips' film project, "Christmas on Mars" (see "Flaming Lips Spew About New Album, Martian Christmas Movie"). The release date for Coyne's long-promised film has become something of an industry-wide punch line. (The band's Web site still says: "The Flaming Lips' first feature film, 'Christmas on Mars,' will be available in time for Christmas in 2003." Whoops!) But he swears that it's almost finished and fans will be seeing it on the big screen really soon. Honest.
"It's about 75 percent done. There's some spots we need to fill in, and some of it is waiting for actors to play parts. I talked to Elijah Wood down at South by Southwest, and his schedule for April was open for a little bit, but now it's not." Coyne explained. "By the end of the summer all the filming will be done. And then we want to do the 5.1 [stereo mix], because if we play it in theaters, we want it to be a big deal, with big speakers and sh-- falling from the ceiling and smoke machines."
Oh, wait DAMN!!! Elijah - please! Open up some time in your schedule this summer! DO IT!!!!
AND... lilith had a hilarious little bit from TV without Pity's recap of the CSI episode; I thought you'd like this Cal (never been to TWoP? Do it! Got there via HannColl going there for funny LOST re-caps. In fact... ohgod... I wonder what they do to HOUSE!!! *runs*) This is under a cut for those who may not have see the finale yet:
TwoP excerpt from CSI recap
...after losing a coin toss to Warrick, Nicky ends up at a contrived crime scene, whereupon John Saxon knocks him out, stuffs him in a Plexiglas coffin, buries him underground, and attaches a live internet video feed to the whole deal. In a move that suggests he's only a criminal near-genius, he does not sell banner ads on the website.
Actually - can't run over there now, and I only skimmed my list quickly - gotta go plant some plants! Be back later today. Love y'all!
