Woody? Bigfoot? Just Relax™

First, a welcome to Pixeldusted, and may he continue to toil in anonymity for our bemusement.

Last night I went to see Match Point, Woody Allen's alleged comeback film and the first time he has turned his camera away from his home of Manhattan to another city, London. For those of you wondering if the movie does, indeed, represent a return to form- a real Woody Allen movie, one that has some of the same combination of pathos, casual intellectualism and visual cues swiped from much better French directors- let me just say


no. it sucks. do not give Woody ten dollars.

In more important (and exciting!) news, Bigfoot has been sighted! It would seem that the tribesmen of a southern Malaysian state have spotted a

12" hairy man-beast on the outskirts of a national forest. Three fishermen of the tribe started a popular obsession last November when they reported seeing three of the creatures at the edge of the Endau-Rompin reserve. Apparently the tribesmen have less of a credibility gap then might be expected from a people who believe the hairy hominids to be the largest of three mysterious proto-human species living in the forest, as the government has dispatched "an official Bigfoot-tracking team" to the site. Of course, Maylasians are in no way familiar with the Bigfoot of western culture, so every news story you will read will contain a healthy portion of Lost in Translation. Other than it being twelve feet tall and hairy, and possessing a propulsion system capable of making the enormous footprints it apparently left on the river banks, there is little to go off of as far as what the creature might look like, though I have clear picture in my mind:


"Man, do I get off on fucking with Malaysian fishermen!"

Even more elusive and unctuous than Manimal, Man-Boy George took to the floor today to announce that *gasp*

MILWAUKEE - Saying the nation is on the verge of technological breakthroughs that would "startle" most Americans,


Our nation is on the threshold of new energy technology that I think will startle the American people," Bush said. "We're on the edge of some amazing breakthroughs — breakthroughs all aimed at enhancing our national security and our economic security and the quality of life of the folks who live here in the United States.


Shucks, was that ever easy! A month ago we had to do something and now it's almost here, the solution! Hurrah! I can officially accept the opposite of everything you say to be true! Thanks! Seriously, though? Seriously? The State of the Union focussed on energy independence and then our plan is Deus Ex Machina? "Something will come along to fix our problems!" That's the answer!?
