5 quick things

1. we saw Borat. a funny romp, however I could have done with fewer jokes of a scatalogical nature. if anything, it is valuable for its documentation of how little it takes to get homophobic rodeo dons and inebriated frat boys to reveal their prejudices. it is also interesting to see how many law suits are springing up. i'd be curious to hear what some of you film folks think of these.

2. tis the season to fluff your dollars. we hope to bring back a new and improved version of the fluffy dollars drinking game.

3. Laguna Beach just gets skankier and skankier. But Tessa and Rocky are very interesting young women. Or rather, their depiction within the context of the show is interesting. The whole "mean girls" vs. "nice girls" is as old as snow, but it's never been an especially pronounced theme on the show before. Sure, you had Kristin vs. Lauren, but Cami and Kyndra are way meaner and more gnarly than Kristin. And Lauren didn't really have any of the nobility they're trying to heap on Tessa and Rocky. As for the boys, an annoying boy of the week post is coming re: Rocky's manchop Alex, Kyndra's Tyler, and everybody's fuckbuddy Cameron. This is by far the most emotionally abusive cadre of dudes yet.

4. Hey! I'm learning how to design web pages. Here's a the first draft of our homepage.

5. Puppytire has a new friend.

I am so very impressed with the web page! I heart, heart, triple heart the picture poem as well. I may, in fact, covet it. Is that wrong?

And an unrelated, yet decidedly fluffy note, have you seen the official mascots of the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games? I totally think they're right up your alley.
