Overnight Open Thread - Pre-Christmas Eve Edition

Actually, this isn't about Christmas at all. I'm all tapped out after the Festivus thread this morning. How about we go back to that tried-and-true moron favorite (which, yes, I know we already did today) the movies.

Let's start with this, because I find short people amusing.


How tall are these peoples?


Look, I've been in the same room as Renner. Okay, it was a grocery store and he was buying natty light and a bottle of cheap white. All I'm saying is: he's not the shortest man I've ever seen, but he's not all that tall either. But he's absolutely, certainly taller than Cruise. Cruise actually has a little butt boy following him around with a box to stand on. It happens.

Two things you can never, ever trust on IMDB: (1) the ages of the women, and (2) the heights of the men. I lived in Hollywood. Aside from Costa Rica, it is probably the place with the shortest average height for men that I've ever lived.

Speaking of Hollywood, yes, we are in a Baby Goose bubble. Every time I turn around this guy is in another movie. True story, though, for a darn hilarious movie (I was actually crying it was so funny) check out Crazy, Stupid, Love. I'm not a big fan of Steve Carell, but he really pulls this off. It also has Emma Stone, who is cheeky and delightful and frickin' hilarious in Easy A. This actress is going places.

Okay, where was I? Oh, right. Movies.


The makeup folks were PISSED.

Five minutes of behind-the-scenes The Hobbit: The Part One Subtitle I Can't Remember is available. And by "five minutes" I mean twelve.

Oh, what else is going on... Oh, here have another YouTube video that I've been watching too much of. It's music, so be warned. Here's another. And perhaps the most soulful version of House of the Rising Sun I've ever heard.

You gamers out there, I'm still totally absorbed by Skyrim (and too cheap to pay for a MMORPG), but I'm hearing good things about Star Wars: The Old Republic. A former AOSHQ guestblogger sends this review:

-The fully voiced dialogue, in key scenes in particular, is superb -The writing is well done, KOTOR level - very great on class-specific stuff -Finally, I get to roam the galaxy with Rachel Leigh Cook by my side. It's a dream for 15 year old me.

SWIDT?

And, finally, in almost-DOOM, but definitely moron-relevant news, the FDA sent this poor man, a bonafide "sperm donor" (scare quotes, trust me), a cease-and-desist letter since he doesn't have a federal permit. Look, if the federal government wants a permit before I make a "donation," it's really gonna put a crimp in my style. And I suspect yours too.

Oh, what the hell, one more music video, but only good for you morons who can speak Spanish. This one's got eye candy for the boys and girls.

Alright, g'night, ONTers. If you just close your eyes, Santa will get here faster!
