22 August 1997: I'm Taking Over Your School [Nov. 23rd, 2008|09:53 pm]
Pacific Novelties

The only reason for watching the 1997 Patrick Stewart Film Masterminds is the introduction, in which internet hacking is taken to a degree even more ludicrous than the usual gibson-hacking of most Hollywood films.

The film isn't available on DVD, so here's a vhs rip of said intro. It is absolutely delicious, especially for those of you who just EAT "inaccurate movie technology from the 90's" up.

Factual errors: There are no graphical interfaces on web sites that allow users to hack.

1 June 1967 : The Quiet Furies [Oct. 28th, 2008|02:40 pm]
Pacific Novelties


This is a book of psychiatric case studies, published in 1967 and, to the best of my knowledge, never reprinted. Several of the case studies were made into thirty-minute, black & white films by the University of Michigan Television Center in 1969. The most interesting thing about this book, in my opinion, is the set of illustrations done by an artist named Edith Dines, about whom I can find nothing. They are imperfect but striking. Some of them are, as the kids say these days, "nightmare fuel". I present them here with the case names they accompanied serving as titles.

DD/MM Unknown, 2000 : Game Room, Southwest Australia [Oct. 23rd, 2008|08:29 am]
Pacific Novelties

In early 2000, I took a short road trip through southwest Australia. Along with absolutely beautiful shoreline and some of the best weather I've experienced in my life, I found an odd, wonderful little treasure: an arcade game room.

It was a small room attached to the side of a diner, I think. All the games were switched off, and it was clear that no one had been into the room for quite some time.

More photos, descriptions, and observations beneath the cut.Collapse )

So you've seen Ratatoing and are craving MORE? Or do you refuse to see it and want a rundown of it featuring wildly inappropriate music and video effects?


Made in two hours with Windows Movie Maker, Ratatoing Feat. Seal is either the funniest or worst things I've ever done. I'll let YOU, the AUDIENCE, decide.

Do you want to see Ratatoing for yourself? Of course you do. Here it is.

Here are the voice actors who slummed it under pseudonyms:

While you wait, please enjoy the "Ratatoing Rap". After the movie, you'll be qualified to sport this handsome bumper sticker.
