Overnight Open Disaster Thread

”This is my ONT! There are many like it but this one is mine!”

Happy Ferretday! So yeah, there will be ferrets below the fold. Whether you like it or not. And you will like it. Why? A brief word from Gunnery Sgt. Hartman:

”I kinda’ like ferrets and other cute, small critters. I realize that some may have a dissenting opinion on the subject, and I respect those opinions. However, if you insist on expressing them I will PT you 'till you DIE.”

Strong, yet cuddly words indeed. Stuff n' things below the fold.

Yesterday was recycling day at my place, so I rummaged around and found a couple of old things I could re-post. Because, after all, hunting for new and interesting content for you freaks seriously cuts into my “me” time (which mostly consists of serious binge drinking and macrame, but that’s really none of your business, now is it?)

Ace posted the following a couple of years back, when the blog had, like, 3 readers (two of whom were Ace). It's the revised first draft screenplay of Alien III, by William Gibson, and the version that should've been made instead of the dismal thing that was filmed.

Spoiler alert! (It's kinda' self-explanatory. Also, old):

More old: Comedian Tim Hawkins updates some classic songs by now geezerish rock stars.

Here be ferrets!

This first one is for all you wymynfolk here tonight. It's a heartwarming video of a superhawt guy and his adorably playful ferret/roadkill. No, there's no need to thank me. I do this for the love of the work and for the smiles/horrified looks it puts on your faces. What can I say? I'm a giver:

More ferret goodness: Who among us doesn’t own both a ferret and a lion? And to the credit of the owners, it looks like they’re doing yoeman’s work trying to get the lion to learn to read, even if it would prefer to gulp down the ferret in a single bite. Plus there is soothing music involved.

Ok, fine. You crybabies can haz kitteh vs. ferret, but I do this under protest and only because of the awesome soundtrack:

Speaking of soundtracks, I note that Maet declared an official ONT theme song last night. Well, hold on there Mr. Big Shot Fancy Pants. I'll see your Boy George and raise you one Nick Gilder:

How do ya' like them apples pal?

This concludes tonight's ONT (mercifully). I'll be here through Sunday. Please be sure to tip your waitresses and co-bloggers generously. You've been a lame great audience! G'night!
