Take the Time to Watch the Oscar-Nominated Animated Short THE LOST THING
On our podcast last week, Curt raved about the Shaun Tan’s Oscar-nominated animated short film The Lost Thing. The short is based on Tan’s 2002 children’s book of the same name, but it’s one of those “kids” stories that will probably be more emotionally affecting for adults. The story revolves around a young man who meets up with a bizarre entity that has the personality of a lovable, lost dog. The man then tries to find a place for the creature in a mundane, repetitive world.
After taking the 15 minutes to watch the short, I can see why Curt loved it. The short is hilarious, heartbreaking, and the visual style is absolutely gorgeous. When you see an animated short like this, it makes you feel slightly depressed about the homogenization of major animated films. I can’t help but wonder if a studio would have the guts to design a feature-length animated film that looks like this.

CHUD.com — ******* MURDERS ANOTHER ******* AFTER BLACK SWAN SCREENING
In a clear demonstration that being a dick in a movie theater is not a good idea, a Latvian 27-year-old murdered the hell out of a fellow moviegoer during the credits of a Black Swan screening. The victim was apparently being annoying, rude, and munching his popcorn like a big fat ******* during the Aronofsky film that is certainly an intense enough experience without people being decimated near you. The Latvian press notes that the shooter was a lawyer and the shootee a “noted banker” (is that a ****ing pun in an article about a shooting crime?). The former is currently exercising his right to refuse questioning in the face of a murder charge and a gun violation, while the latter is exercising his right to not be alive anymore.
The crazy bastard shot his victim four times in a Forum Cinema, proving that terrible, psychotic things can happen anywhere at any time. It also goes to show that not only are manners never overrated, but that those passive aggressive back-and-forth arguments we’ve all witnessed (or been a part of) in movie theaters are pretty much never worth it. If you’re the one yelling, in almost every case it would be a better idea to let a manager know, or let it go. If you’re the one being yelled at, then maybe take it to heart that you’re being an ******* and shape up, because starting a defensive fight could result in you being ended.
Safe movie-watching everyone, the experience is in enough danger without violence ****ing it all up.
