"The starfish seem to waste away, ‘deflate’ a little, and then just disintegrate. The arms just detach, and the central disc falls apart. It seems to happen rapidly, and not just dead animals undergoing decomposition."

The Pacific Ocean is dying, apparently...

The fun starts ten minutes and 35 seconds deep into the morbidly-obese, crack-smoking, pig-eyed mayor of Toronto's "impromptu" interview with Toronto talk radio fixture John "Johnny" Oakley.

Montreal-based, Ontario-born documentarian Peter Wintonick passed away today at the age of 60. He had recently been diagnosed with liver cancer. Join me in celebrating this great man's life and work by watching his most well known and important work, Manufacturing Consent: Noam Chomsky and the Media.

I would have chosen a slightly more sinister song to play under the action, while still retaining the bubblegum pop to give it that counterpoint punch, and I would have slowed down the action just a titch more, and I would have ramped up the gore and violence just a touch - maybe fine-tuned the special effects on the "crunch" scene a bit, to make it more visceral and realistic. But otherwise, this is as close to perfect as a low budget short horror film can get. I give it 9/10!

One of yer old pal Jerky's favorite film directors is Texas' own uber-twee auteur, Wes Anderson. From his quirky debut, Bottle Rocket (1996), through the comic mastery of Rushmore (1998), the evocative, hyperconscious designs of The Royal Tenenbaums (2001), his alleged "stumble", the brilliantly funky The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou (2004), his overlooked gem The Darjeeling Ltd (2007) and his first bona-fide box office smash, Moonrise Kingdom (2012), I've loved them all with a simple, uncomplicated love that I really don't feel the need to defend. Of his oeuvre, only The Fantastic Mister Fox (2009) has left me cold. And so it is with great elation that I see Anderson's latest, The Grand Budapest Hotel, now has a trailer. And oh, what a trailer! The cast, the look, the sound and the feels... all seem to point towards vintage Anderson, and that's more than enough to get MY fat ass in the theater. Check it out and tell me you aren't intrigued!

Just thought I'd share this with y'all. It's the first page of my upcoming horror short comic (and recently wrapped short film), titled The Last Halloween! I hope to be finished the story soon, and I'll let y'all know where you can see it as soon as 1) I finish drawing the story and 2) we finish editing and post-producing the film. In the meantime, I hope this tides you over! Cheers and huzzahs!
