An interesting picture, although they've had to take serious licence with actual geography to get it all to fit.


so, just like the actual underground map...

Yep, although I don't know london geography whereas I do know world geography, so I can see the errors, rather than just know they're there.

WGA Award nominations announced

Good showings from The Sopranos, The Wire, Curb Your Enthusiasm and Flight of the Conchords.

It's a shame that most writers for animated shows aren't WGA members since the category does seem rather biased towards The Simpsons.

That's from the book, and if you order it online you can get a poster-sized version. Otherwise, try searching for a better scan.

As for it not looking like the world...totally missing the point!

I don't find you disagreeable in the least. I just happen to disagree with you on quite a lot.

At what seems to be a standard 6 episodes per season, it will take them 65.5 years to match the output of the original.

You can cut that in half. Those type of series tend to run 12-13 episodes per.

Golden Globes ceremony scrapped

QUOTE (IMDB.com - IMDB News Flash)
Amid Strike Fears, Golden Globes Reduce Coverage

In the wake of the ongoing Writers Guild of America strike, NBC and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association have proposed scaling back their coverage of Sunday's Golden Globe awards from a three-hour ceremony and dinner to a one-hour press conference announcing the winners. Fearful of WGA picketing, and a recent statement by the Screen Actors Guild that none of the 70+ acting nominees would attend the ceremony, the Globes made a mad scramble on Monday to come up with a contingency plan that would allow some kind of network television coverage (and thus save millions of dollars in advertisting revenue) without the fear of picketing or no-shows from high-profile celebrities. To insure that the show would go on in some way, NBC, Dick Clark Productions (which produces the Golden Globes show) and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association have decided to cancel the traditional dinner and ceremony, and instead broadcast a press conference via NBC News (which is not affected by the WGA strike) to announce the winners, and bracket this one-hour special with a number of different news programs centering on the Globes.

At press time, while the WGA had agreed to withhold its picketing from the press conference, it had not given an official go-ahead for the additional coverage. Negotiations were said to be ongoing regarding the use of clips and the Globes party coverage.

According to the Los Angeles Times, NBC issued a statement late Monday afternoon that said Sunday evening would tentatively contain the following broadcasts (all times are Eastern):

7pm: A Dateline NBC special with interviews and clips of the nominees (initially scheduled for Saturday)

8pm: Tentatively, a retrospective/clip show to be produced by Dick Clark Enterprises

9pm: A NBC News press conference announcing the Golden Globe winners

10pm: An Access Hollywood-style Golden Globes party show

The new broadcast plan will allow for a certain amount of red carpet coverage and party coverage in addition to the press conference. Nominees and party attendees would be expected to go down a traditional red carpet, but they would then split off to various parties. Once the awards were announced, the winners would have an opportunity to give a statement or reaction from either a party site or the press room. So far, no potential attendees have confirmed or denied they would attend any of the festivities.

Hollywood Stars To Boycott Golden Globes

Hollywood stars like Julia Roberts, Keira Knightley and Johnny Depp look set to boycott this Sunday's Golden Globes ceremony to show their support to striking writers. Actors represented by the Screen Actors' Guild (SAG) are in "unanimous agreement" not to ignore the plight of the Writers Guild of America union members, who are picketing over royalties. Announcing the union's decision on Friday, SAG president, Alan Rosenberg, said, "After considerable outreach to Golden Globe actor nominees and their representatives over the past several weeks, there appears to be unanimous agreement that these actors will not cross WGA (Writers' Guild of America) picket lines." In response to the boycott action, the WGA members thanked the SAG for its "solidarity and support." Other stars nominated for gongs at the prestigious ceremony include George Clooney, John Travolta, Denzel Washington, Cate Blanchett and Jodie Foster - all of whom are unlikely to appear at the awards show if the WGA members do not reach an agreement with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which organizes the Golden Globes, in time for next Sunday. Knightley, who is up for Best Actress for her starring role in Atonement, is particularly supportive of the strike, because of her playwright mother, Sharman Macdonald. A representative for the British beauty confirms: "If the strike is still in place then Keira won't cross a picket line as her mother is a writer."


This really needs to get resolved sooner rather than later.

I hope I'm not the only one here who's familiar with the works of Jan Svankmajer. I don't think I've ever mentioned him before, but I grew up on stuff like this:

Dimensions of Dialogue

Darkness Light Darkness

And the film Alice.

I just found out that all his short films are available on DVD in one set, which pleases me no end and I'm going to buy them for sure.

I've shown Alice to people and they've been terrified of it. Not just "Oh, that's creepy", but genuinely had nightmares over its disturbing imagery of things like living pieces of meat with rusty nails flying out of them, or half-horse half-bird skeletons fighting dolls in a house of toy bricks. I first saw that when I was 3 though, same as with most of the stuff of his I've seen, so I'm just fascinated by them.


When other kids think of the shows they watch as a kid and think of bright colours and Fireman Sam, I think of 2 clay people having sex by ripping each-other apart, and disembodied heads dueling by producing shoes from their mouths.

That first video I haven't seen since I was 10 or so, so it's really brought back memories. That DVD set I have to buy, it's my childhood in a box.

It's amazing I'm as "normal" as I am, really.

Apparently there's talk of the Oscar ceremony being animated this year since animation writers (except for those working on The Simpsons, Family Guy and King of the Hill are not covered by the WGA and would be able to circumnavigate the strike this way. The best suggestion so far has been the Guardian's idea of having puppets replace celebrities a la Team America: World Police. I don't think I'd want the strike to be resolved in time if that were the case.

I just read this about 15 minutes ago. I like that idea, but I'd prefer it be animated by the Futurama team and entirely presented by former deceased Oscar winners' heads in jars.
