Cool Shit 4/4

Has the Gate to Hell been found? Hope so, I can finally write a beginning to my movie script!

For Lord of the Rings fans and other curious folk...a translation of a Russian novel that tells the story of the ring from the perspective of Sauron. You can download it for free here.

Awesome photos taken at exactly the right time.

It was Mr. Alec Baldwin's birthday yesterday. Enjoy:

So it seems like May 26 is going to be an all nighter for Arrested Development fans.

Hannibal premieres tonight at 10 - the "prequel" of sorts to Red Dragon and The Silence of the Lambs. It's kind of difficult to set expectations. The novels Red Dragon and The Silence... by Thomas Harris were fantastic, as were the original movies (I'm talking about the Chris Elliot Red Dragon movie and not the Edward Norton one). But then the Harris got a little loopy, writing sequels and prequels and whatnot, and then movies based on those were uneven and well now, here we are - probably at some of the most intriguing source material (potentially how Lechter was caught), and we've got to watch it unfold as a television series on NBC. Such a strange trip we've taken, no? Anyway, here's a trailer for the show:

(2 asides - one: How unlucky is Will Graham to be sent to a serial killer psychiatrist for a psych exam while he's investigating serial killers? and two: Anyone else appreciate the "meta-ness" of having a Hannibal ad run before the Hannibal trailer on Youtube? Dear NBC: perhaps running an ad for ANOTHER show would be slightly more beneficial.)

I make no excuses for being a Huey Lewis fan; back in the 80s and today. Guy knows what he's doing and puts on a great show. And now, we get to see another side of him and recognize he has a good sense of humor about himself. Though, if you've never seen American Psycho, this might not really resonate for you...
