Some days I sorta wish I could just sort of procedurally generate random OTP text. Like I have all the links here, and I have all the webtools to make a post, why can’t the internet just write it for me too? I am tired and lazy and entitled and frankly that has not gotten me as far in life as I was hoping. Speaking of…

At some point a design has so much of a “never gunna happen” factor that it actually wraps back around to be super awesome.

Like 45 trailers came out this week like Green Lantern (yawn) and the new sexy Little Red Riding Hood with a sexy little red riding hood and a sexy wolf being sexy in a sexy village and even Amanda Seyfried couldn’t keep me awake through a trailer trying that hard to show me how much of a sexy supernatural romance it was. Anyway, this was the only one that didn’t disappoint me.
