… far away from the cold night air:
For movie fans and Lord of the Rings geeks,
Lore Sjöberg speculates on how
five famous directors might put their stamp on the
starcrossed production of The Hobbit.
I would personally like to see the encounter between Gollum and Bilbo, as written and directed by David Mamet.
"He wants us to tell him what's in his f---in' nasty little pocketses, my preciousss? We will tears off his f---in' head and put it in his f---in' nasty little pocketses. Then we answerses his stupid riddle."
Pun Salad's official, unaware (and, as always, uncompensated) mascot,
Cathy Poulin, is in the news, delivering a Really Big Check
to the (so far unindicted)
Mayor of Secaucus, New Jersey from her employer, Bob's Discount
Furniture. Click to embiggen:
Observations: Cathy's a tiny thing, ideal for making sofas and chairs look big in Bob's TV ads. And I love the burst effect around the check's dollar amount; I'm going to start doing that on my checks.
But it's not all frivolity here at Pun Salad today. For serious
commentary on a matter of vital import, I suggest reading Red at Surviving
Grady concerning Amalie Benjamin and whether she should
wear her glasses on air. My vote: oh gosh yeah.
