2010: An Alice Oddessey

Clear your calendars for 2010. Tim Burton is making an adaptation of Alice in Wonderland beginning in May 2008. It’s currently scheduled for release in 2010, so it may actually be too early to put together solid plans. I haven’t heard much, but I know it’s supposed to be animated…Continue Reading

This rings true in…Continue Reading

Pee Your Bed Much?

When I was very young, I distinctly remember wetting the bed. More importantly, I remember why I wet the bed. In all cases I can recall, there was a very realistic dream in which I rose from bed and stumbled into the bathroom to pee. The realism peaked when the…Continue Reading

“Olaf” – No Relation…

You laugh now, but try searching for your name in Google’s image search. This is “Olaf”, the photorealistic centaur. This image came from Freak Aspect’s Internet gallery. You can see it here.
