filed under "the RPF writes itself": Zachary Levi, Sendhil Ramamurthy and Zachary Quinto at a Maxim party. All are a leeeeetle bit drunk. ZQ clearly does not read Maxim. ZL and SR clearly do.

filed under "really should not be this fun": Captain Jack Sparrow interactive dress-up doll! (The most disturbing thing is how you can remove his dreadlocks.)

filed under "awesome people saying awesome things": Neil Gaiman thinks that the people in Torchwood are all too stupid to live. You know he is right.

filed under "found this in my bookmarks and remembered how when I first found it, I spent ten blissful minutes convinced that Joe Flanigan and David Hewlett had actually in real life made a movie where they play a pilot and a scientist who fall in love during WWII": Missed the Saturday Dance (created by zoetrope). I suggest watching the trailer first. Then listen to the audio, spend a wistful few minutes trying to wish this film into existence, and then meander through the story. (I am a sucker for wartime romances in any case, so I was a lost cause from the first crackle of the wireless.)

filed under "AWESOME": Michel Gondry has made a film called Be Kind Rewind. This, I am sure, you are aware of. In this film people try to recreate with no budget well-known films and then stock a video store with them. Michel Gondry has therefore (of course) done a no-budget remake of the aforelinked official trailer in which he plays all the parts. My "do I want to see this movie?" sensors are pinging off the charts, I tell you.

filed under "lol what? okay yay!": Fred Astaire tries to pick up Gene Kelly on a park bench (that is the only way I can rationalise their behaviour); they call each other girls' names, segue awkwardly into song-and-dance routine, use strange dated slang terms?/ colloquialisms?, ballroom dance with each other. Ziegfeld Follies, 1945.

filed under " no really, old movies are gayer than you remember": Bing Crosby and Bob Hope kiss in Road to Morocco, 1942. (I recently watched Road to Bali, and was looking for their kiss from that - I was weirdly gleeful when I realised that apparently they did this routinely. (Also! Ignoring the characterisation of Bing & Bob, there is a definite sort of Booshiness to Road to Bali - gorillas (who are very obviously people in gorilla suits) falling in love with people, mad homoeroticism, celebrity cameos, breaking the fourth wall, crazy exotic locales, one of the duo never getting the girl, giant squid, etc.))
