I love the balloon and candy themes! It's just too bad he's ... Read More

Away We Go trailer

BY Lisa in General

And it's directed by Sam Mendes, but looks like a sweet, poignant movie with plenty of laughs (unlike the ... Read More
LOOK AT THESE FREAKIN HUMANOID FISH!!! These ladies are the product of one very inbred pond in South Korea, they are the last of their kind because no male-equivalent exists. If you need to know more than that, check out Weird Asian News. Ok, maybe I will be a little esoteric, its a bit of a personal compulsion. Anyways, I was struck by how different of an emotional response a fish gets when it has features resembling our own, even if its just a mutant ... Read More

BY Laurie in General

I was concerned the first time I heard about ... Read More
