Mr Hilton at The Editing Room has just put up an abridged script for Watchmen.
And this excerpt is for the benefit of The Goddess who wondered what the heck the story was with Bubastis the wondercat:
Would you like me to explain why as I stroke my tigercatrabbit?
Er, actually, yeah, are you going to explain that thing at all?
Who, Mr. Meowkins? He’s my pet.
Right. I figured that.
This link/post is dedicated to Mr Molloy.
This week, in lieu of my usual witterings, I offer you:
- Former Paramount Theatre manager Dan Slevin used to throw together the best – the best, I tell ya – weekly e-newsletters. I may have been in the wrong city at the time (Christchurch, then Dunedin), but the reviews, descriptions and one-liners were a pleasure to read, and welcome heads-ups on what might (eventually) hit the South Island. He’s now the Capital Times film reviewer – and generously reprints his reviews at his blog, Funerals and Snakes.
- And for something different, try killer-fact.com where literary quizzes (what novel opened with “Call me Ishmael”?) gleefully rub shoulders with polls like which Spice Girl to eat first when all the food has run out on your desert island. (Fedora-tip: NZBC.)
Update: the killer-fact.com page now says “This account has been suspended – please contact billing…”. Guess you’ll have to take my word for it.
