More iFilm Fun

Remember that AT-ST lookin' robot "land walker" I mentioned here a while ago? (Months after Dave from Garfield Ridge featured it, of course.)

You can see video of it in action here (look for "Land Walker").

Interestingly, the robot's feet seem to be based on the exotic technology that brought us... in-line skating. It's able to turn on a dime without moving its legs; I assume its feet are lined with some large steel ball-bearings or something that allow it to turn in place.

And, you know, if you're over there anyway, you might want to check out Sophie Marceau losing one strap of her dress on the red carpet at Cannes or someplace like that.

It says a lot about the coarsening of our society and the end of public shame and the wanton flouting of long-existing norms of sexual modesty.

Plus, you get to see full-on raw tit, which is just as nice as I imagined it would be since I saw her in Lost & Found.

Suspicions, Suspicions: She seems to dip that shoulder almost deliberately to drop the strap. Trying to revive a stalled career?

I don't know. Seems like a good plan to me, if that's what it was.

Also... Fat Kid tipped me to this a few days ago. Check out "World of War Craft with Leroy." I don't play War Craft, and alas I don't play these sorts of games over the internet -- but it is sort of funny to watch a bunch of dorks work out their plan (via chat over the microphones) and then see a character played by "Leroy" completely get sick of all the talking and just run into the monster's lair.

A total party kill ensues. It's fun to hear them say "Oh gee, oh fuck, oh God" in between calling for the casting of a "Divine Intervention" spell. Maybe if you guys weren't such potty-mouths Thor would be more willing to help you out.

Moderately chuckleworthy, if you're into this sort of Geek Culture.
