Johnny Depp must really like hats….

This is so very disturbing....

This is so very disturbing....

Well he must have to love hats and weird hair since he’s been through a lot of both in his movies. First you have Pirates, in which he has the weird braids and he wears an amazing pirate hat. Then you have Charlie and the Chocolate Factory where he wears the big purple top hat. Even as a cartoon Johnny Depp has an insane batch of emo bangs that constantly poke out in the Corpse Bride. He’s got the weird skunk hair in Sweeney Todd (and he was ya know the demon barber) and finally he’s going to be the Mad Hatter in Tim Burton’s new Alice in Wonderland.

This Alice in Wonderland will be live action with an unknown actress named Mia Wasikowska playing Alice. There’s some pictures here of Alice and she looks like she’s on a boat; which I’m sure has fans freaking out since I’ve heard this part isn’t in the book. I wouldn’t be too worried if I was a fan of the book though, seeing as how Tim Burton is slightly insane an amazing director and Johnny Depp always acts good in his films (yet more proof of their love for each other lol). I’m looking forward to it since it seems like it will be a lot more interesting than the cartoon version. I hope it’s full of a good deal of insanity (let’s just hope there’s no more cross-dressing Johnny Depp) seeing as how you’re adding up both Alice in Wonderland (greatest stoner dream of all time) and Tim Burton. Anyway it’s due to release on March 5, 2010 in the US.

He doesn’t look like Yoda to me…

August 20, 2008 at 8:04 am (Random) (, , , , , , , , )

Yoda the cat is absolutely adorable even if he doesn’t really look like Yoda to me. I mean it’s not like his ears point out to the side like Yoda’s and Yoda doesn’t have 4 ears either. I can’t talk though cuz both of my cats have weird names too.

Anyways Yoda was being passed around in a bar since he was part of a large litter of kittens and his owners were looking for a home for him. Once he passed out on Ted Rock’s shoulder there was no choice for Ted and his wife Valerie. Even though they had promised eachother no more cats, (since they just had one die on them after 20 years,) they fell for the cute 8-week-old kitten and took him home. I would’ve too 😀 . I’m a sucker for Russian blues now.

They took him to the vet and they hadn’t seen anything like it before. His owner Valerie is sure that Yoda hears fine and is just like a normal cat besides his quiet meow. People have also asked Valerie if she had Yoda’s ears cut that way. I think that would be a horrible thing to do just to make your cat look funny. Then again people stunt the growth of their cats so they stay kitten-size during their also-stunted life of 2-3 years.

Thought I’d share this adorable cat anyways. It doesn’t help any that he looks a lot like one of mine 😉 . He’s sure to be a lolcat celebrity if their owners put up more pictures though.

1972 Makes the normal abnormal

August 12, 2008 at 10:49 am (Random) (, , , , , , , , , , , )

I found this interesting artist today. His name is Joshua Levine and he makes sculptures of animals. These animals aren’t what you’d think though. He takes interesting looks at mutations and evolutions of these animals and they’re really cool looking. From the pictures on his site it looks like he prefers to do sculptures in massive groups rather than just 1 or 2 figures.

He has this thing called the Stare Suit which does makes people stare at him since there’s usually things attached to the top of it. From what it looks like there’s also 3 tv screens on the back of it. I think it also must have a camera on the front for most shows. Anyways, here’s some of the cool sculptures he’s made.

Yay a look at how the light up frogs are attached

Let me know what you think of these fun little sculptures. I wonder if they’re for sale or if he just uses them for shows. It’d be really cool to have one.

Montauk Monster Rumors

August 7, 2008 at 1:13 pm (Movie, Random, TV) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

[Edit: Since some people can’t read and like to jump to conclusions about my thoughts (without reading my other posts on the Montauk Monster I might add) I’d just like to say that I don’t whole-heartedly believe all of this. I’m just stating some interesting thoughts and possibilities about the matter.]

So there are a lot of rumors going around that Monty is just part of a big viral marketing campaign. I read an article on www.montauk-monster.com describing how they examined the video with the 3 girls talking to Plum Tv. Anyways Nicky (The owner of montauk-monster.com) seems to think that it has something to do with the Cloverfield sequel. I think that this is semi-viable but it seems like it’s been too long. I would’ve thought that if it was a viral marketing scheme, a few days after it was released there would be teasers on tv or on the internet somewhere easily accessible. There could’ve even been a camcorder (or whatever they’re going to have the 2nd point of view be in the Cloverfield sequel) left with the creature. It all seems very fishy to me but the original Cloverfield had a huge amount of viral marketing. So maybe this is just them building up the excitement very early.

But there is good news. A replica of the Montauk Monster is now available on eBay. lol it’s about time! I’ve been waiting to buy my very own Monty T-shirt but nobody’s selling them. Maybe they respect him too much to put him on a T-shirt but I doubt it considering the spoof pictures that have been made using photoshop.

Just look at him, isn’t he cute? lol the winning bidder even has the option of adding more blood to him. How fun 😉

Montauk Monster Update

August 2, 2008 at 7:26 pm (Random) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

A new picture of the Montauk monster was released on Friday. This new picture makes it seem like the 2nd picture takers rolled over the creature. Also, the legs seem to have been unbound by that small leather strap. This picture seems a little shady already because of the missing strap.

There are some things that do make a lot of sense about this picture though. The new picture definitely makes it look like a bloated, decomposed dog. On the underside where it was laying against the sand it’s not as dark seeing as how it was out of the sun. It also still has some fur on this side. There are 2 flies more visibly shown on this picture giving proof to its actual size being around that of a dog.

The Gawker and I are still not convinced along with many other people. A new interview with the 3 girls that were the “first” picture takers is also out. They show Plum’s Nick Leighton their camera with the picture in it and also the 2nd angle shot which is different than the rolled over pictures (That’s 5 pictures now including the new 3). The face looks different in these new pictures as well if you ask me. Nick Leighton also reveals that they’ve checked with several scientists who all think it’s neither a dog nor a raccoon (Still can’t believe you said it was a raccoon Jeff…). Anyways you can watch the interview for yourself and see what you think about it (And notice the dumb girls who supposedly took the pictures).

Montauk Monster=Half dog half turtle?

July 31, 2008 at 3:03 pm (Random) (, , , , , , , , , , , )

On Tuesday a photo showed up in the Gawker. The monster is very odd looking and a lot of people claim it to be photoshopped. There’s also a lot of “eyewitnesses” though and supposedly an old man took it off the beach to mount it on his wall. The tipster that sent it in to the Gawker in the first place was a viral marketer but she says it has nothing to do with any campaign.


It was rumored that this was part of the advertising for a new show on cartoon network called Cryptids Are Real. There are also rumors that it was a washed up experiment from an animal-disease research facility on Plum island which is right offshore from Montauk.

Either way this thing is pretty freaky looking and I wouldn’t put it past companies to make up a fake creature and have some actors to pretend they witnessed it. If it is some diseased animal though, it’s pretty freaky. I wouldn’t want to have a dog or turtle with that disease. Imagine getting bit with that beak!

Edit: Every time I tried to post this pic for awhile it kept breaking…freaky.

I also found out that an energy drink company called venom is offering a reward for anyone who can capture a “Monty”.

Also here’s a video from Fox claiming that it’s not real with Jeff Corwin for support. Lots of people say he looks scared and I agree that he’s stuttering a lot for someone who’s on tv all the time. They say that there’s a government official there with a gun forcing him to talk.
