Jim Carrey always makes the same kind of movies. It kind of blows. Then again, he’s living with Jenny McCarthy and went out with Lauren Holly.
I liked Munchausen By Proxy, the band in which Alison played. Zooey Deschanel was actually singing, which I found cool. The rest of the band is called Von Iva, which is a real band as opposed to the fake band Munchausen By Proxy. That’s a really cool name. Strangely enough, I know something about Munchausen by proxy thanks to the readings I’ve done.
The band was pretty cool, other than that the movie was OK.
Have you ever wanted a mini-sized Mac? Well this might be the Mac for you. Actually, this isn’t really a Mac, just a really nifty casemod. Modder Widefault decided not to wait for Mac to created or release a metal cased Mini, instead he just created his own. Usually, some of the smaller casemods look kind of cramped. This was is pretty sweet and it has the benefit of trying to look like its bigger brother, the Mac Pro.

I’ve been searching for a full review on this beast, and finally Gizmama delivers. The only negative point is the fact that they managed to get between 4 and 5 hours out of the battery, that was supposed to deliver 7 to 8 hours of autonomy. Does that make you reconsider or do you still lust after this hulking beast? I know that I dreamt about having it…

I found this pretty hilarious when I read it today. There is a new street artist in Paris who’s known as Princess Hijab, and she is all about, as she puts it herself, hijabizing the ads in Paris. Basically, she’s drawing a hijab over models and ads that she deems immodest. She does this on billboards and ads all over the city. I can see the rationale, but apparently her website is unclear about her motives, even though she has a manifesto. To quote Andrew Price,
…but it’s oddly-punctuated and generally baffling.
With her spray paint and black marker pen, [Princess Hijab] is out to hijabize advertising. Even Kate Moss is targeted. She knows all about visual terrorism! And she will not spare her right of expression for the likes of publicists. Make sure that all advertising can be hijabized “ ‘cause that’s her fight Jihad is her art”. And don’t forget, she acts upon her own free will. She is not involved in any lobby or movement be it political, religious or to do with advertising. In fact, the Princess is an insomniac-punk.
Her attempts sound farcical, yet still manage to be comical. Sounds like something that was translated from French by Google. Anway, it’s an interesting way of protesting the scantily clad girls we see in advertisements. Personally, I don’t mind scantily glad women, but not everyone thinks the same way. (via Good)
