ASSORTED ANIMAL ANTICS



It's been a pretty big week on the interwebs for the animal kingdom. It seemed like nearly all my usual web haunts have featured something boldly beastly in as many days. As my list of these items to blog about grew longer, I decided a little potpourri would do just the trick!


"Doctor Hoo"

I'm still not entirely on board with Doctor Who - British television is very divisive for me - but here's an incarnation I can get behind! All eleven Doctors are featured in this incredible work of art...imagined as my most beloved of creatures, owls. I would watch this every week. Are you listening, BBC?

If you can show me proof of a cuter rodent-wearing-a-headdress photo posted this week, I will buy you an iced tea. He looks to be a rather hefty ferret, on top of everything. I've looked at this photo several times this week at work, when I really needed to smile. All hail Noble Chief Ferret!


Rude Fucking Gummi Bears

Katy Perry released the music video for her infectious "California Gurls" single, and I'm here to tell you that it doesn't make a lick of sense when compared to the actual song lyrics. But there are gummi bears. And this red one is a total prick who gives KP the middle finger (audience surrogate?). Trolli - a leading manufacturer of those chewy beasts - issued this absolutely batshit fucking insane/borderline creepy statement:

"Those are definitely not Trolli Gummi Bears in the video because Trolli Gummi Bears would never be that rude. Trolli bears would extend their chubby llittle arms and give Katy a big old bear hug and whisper, 'Everything is going to be alright'."

Wow. That's almost more disturbing than the various drag queens Katy has to rescue from their candy prisons in the video.


BIRDEMIC: SHOCK & TERROR
via CineFamily

Last but certainly not least, I'm going to see an "independent" film tonight called Birdemic: Shock & Terror. It's a midnight movie, not that that should surprise you. Peep the trailer here, and await my review. Sign me up for any morsel of cinema where the special effects look like they were done using Microsoft Paint!

Happy Weekend, gang!
