Lamest Web Design Ever

I’d like to support the FullFrame Documentary Film Festival but I have to say they have the lamest web design I have ever seen:

Total cheese. I am embarassed for them.

This Has Taken Over My Netflix Queue

It was a Netflix recommendation so I tried it … now I am addicted and I have three seasons, five dvds each, to get through. And it’s not just because my dad was a Maryland policeman. Or because Jimmy McNulty is so freaking hot. If you need me I will be in front of my TV feeding these discs into my DVD player…

Herzog Shot During Interview

How am I so late in hearing about this? I adore this man, his legend just keeps growing. Who needs to watch his films, he himself is pure entertainment:

“German director Werner Herzog was shot by a crazed fan during a recent interview with the BBC.

The 63-year-old was chatting with movie journalist Mark Kermode about his new film, documentary Grizzly Man, when a sniper opened fire with an air rifle.

Kermode explains, “I thought a firecracker had gone off.

“Herzog, as if it was the most normal thing in the world, said, ‘Oh, someone is shooting at us. We must go.’

“He had a bruise the size of a snooker ball, with a hole in. He just carried on with the interview while bleeding quietly in his boxer shorts.”

An unrepentant Herzog insisted, “It was not a significant bullet. I am not afraid.”

Herzog Helped Phoenix from Car Wreckage

Oscar-nominee Joaquin Phoenix was rescued from his car wreck last week by German cult director Werner Herzog. The 31-year-old Walk The Line star overturned his car on a canyon road above Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood after his brakes failed and he collided with another vehicle. Phoenix was saved because he was wearing his seat-belt, but has revealed he was helped from the wreckage by the 63-year-old, who has a home nearby. The actor says, “I remember this knocking on the passenger window. There was this German voice saying, ‘Just relax.’ There’s the airbag, I can’t see and I’m saying, ‘I’m fine. I am relaxed. Finally, I rolled down the window and this head pops inside. And he said, ‘No, you’re not.’ And suddenly I said to myself, ‘That’s Werner Herzog‘ There’s something so calming and beautiful about Werner Herzog‘s voice. I felt completely fine and safe. I climbed out. I got out of the car and I said, ‘Thank you,’ and he was gone.”

My Man

He sang Sam Cooke and he stole my heart.
