Trailer for ‘Gilda’ (1946)
I had a severe obsession with Rita Hayworth for a few summers. Gilda remains one of her favorites of mine. She had a weird sort of sex appeal.
What sticks with me also is the extensive work done on her appearance to make her look less Mexican and more white. Painful electrolysis for hair removal to make her forehead look bigger.
Just the thought……
For months, Ubisoft Paris and its neighbor, French bank BNP, have been firing Post-It Note video game characters bank and forth, a lone Space Invader on an Ubisoft employee’s window sparking a competition that quickly grew out of hand. Earlier this month we documented the battle here on Kotaku. The two sides’ creations were impressive, as was their dedication…
Standing a massive three stories tall, this paper pixel version of the assassin Ezio has given up his stealthy ways in order to deliver a message to the folks at BNP: You shall not win this battle. Lay down your Post-Its and go back to work.
I really miss reading. Theres a great joy in falling in love with characters and falling in love with words. Theres beauty in hearing a philosophy in a phrase. I think it is everyone’s excuse that they don’t have enough time to read, but I believe the real question is whether you are willing to spend your time reading, for so many think they won’t glean anything from literature, when they are so wrong, so very wrong.
I am about to dive back into an ocean of worlds.
I’ll see you on the other side.
OMFG GUYS; GWAR LIVES

Aug 13, 2011—Texas Congressman Ron Paul (R) has placed second in The Republican Party’s Iowa Straw Poll, held today in Ames, Iowa. Dr. Paul is one of only two candidates in this year’s field who favors marijuana legalization – former New Mexico Gary Johnson being the other.
Ron Paul finished less than 200 votes behind the poll’s winner, Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann. While the straw poll is non-binding, it is usually an indication of where candidates stand early on in a party’s nomination process. +
