« Previous: kitty's parents rock so hard Next: whole buncha nonsense »

back to the grindstone

Class has started again. I'm taking just the one class this semester, but it's The Big One. According to the instructor, no social life this term. To anyone I know in person: catch you all in December.

So now I'm working on the first assignment, and I have to go on a stock photography hunt. Could someone do me a favor and start "" or something so I don't have to sort through three million nude photos every time I search on iStockPhoto? Or clue me on how I can filter out all of the "My girlfriend wearing nothing but thigh-highs JPEG" images. Cripes.

things that have earned Kitty's "What the hell is this?" recently
* A River Runs Through It, and by "it" I mean "this table"

* The fight over Himalayan caterpillar viagra (link courtesy of MemeMachineGo)

* The episode of Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased) (revival version) where the mad environmentalist attempts to limit human population expansion by putting a chemical in the beer that will make men gay. No, really.

* The Hello Kitty Boardfest

* And finally, the library-borrowed copy of the "theatrical release" of The Wicker Man. About an hour and a half of a policeman wandering around the island of Boobies and Christopher Lee, all with the color palette of that Leonard Nimoy "Bilbo Baggins" video. And a pretty freaky final five minutes. What I actually found more freaky was the idea that Christopher Lee's character Lord Summerisle knows the whole time that the pagan religion of the island is fairly bunk, having been introduced by his grandfather to get everyone's enthusiasm about the crops up again, and he still helps to plot and participate in the awful ritual at the climax of the movie. To me, this level of manipulation is much more creepy than what actually happens.

In honor of Talk Like a Pirate Day, I figure it'd be fun to holler out that the Fall show by the Harvard-Radcliffe Gilbert and Sullivan Players will be The Pirates of Penzance. Hooray! Also, yar.
