Jesus Appears on Backside of Beloved Pet!

Angus MacDougall is a three-year-old terrier mix that has recently been blessed with the revered and holy image of Jesus Christ on his hindquarters. Is this manifestation of The Prince of Peace a coincidence or a bona fide miracle? One thing is for certain, this apparition of the Son of God is sure to inspire controversy. Not much if any true scientific or theological inquiry has been made into the nature of this sign to date, but seeing is believing as little Angus terrier-tush is obviously marked by the likeness of Christ. Click on the image below to witness His astonishing appearance, first hand then be sure to visit the links above to learn more about Angus and his sacred derriere extraordinaire. We hope you enjoy your visit!

Witness the miracle here.

This week I have been mostly listening to Costello Music by The Fratellis

Given the way that this site is decorated it probably shouldnt surprise anyone that The Fratellis Costello Music caught my eye. And when you add the fact that they appear to have lifted their name from the villains in The Goonies, I liked them before Id heard a single track. And I bought the album.

And now Im feeling really pleased with myself because its a really good album.

It has quite a retro feel - 1970s mainly - which gives their songs a feeling of being vaguely familiar, but not quite familiar enough to be able to say where it came from. And then they twist it a bit, in a cheerfully uptempo manner, to come up with a series of vibrant pop anthems that really do keep things moving along.

Just fancy that!

I like listening to 50 Cent and I can groove to his music but I don’t want to groove to him on screen, just yet. Maybe if he does five movies and he shows some talent.

There must be something wrong with this test

Joe Normal
43 % Nerd, 43% Geek, 39% Dork
For The Record:

A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia.
A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one.
A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions.

You scored less than half in all three, earning you the title of: Joe Normal.

This is not to say that you dont have some Nerd, Geek or Dork inside of youwe all do, and you can see the percentages you have right above. This is just to say that none of those qualities stand out so much as to define you. Sure, you enjoy an episode of Star Trek now and again, and yeah, you kinda enjoyed a few classes back in the day. And, once in a while, you stumble while walking down the street even though there was nothing there to cause you to trip. But, for the most part, you look and act fairly typically, and arent much of an outcast.

Id say theres a fair chance someone asked you to take this test. In any event, fairly normal.

Congratulations!

The best of the movie blogs

Following on from my last post, maybe now would be a good time to start filling up the blogroll all over again. But I have no intention of doing this myself which is where you, dear reader, come in.

For me, FilmRot, FilmStalker and Twitch are all required reading. But if you know of a film or film-related blog that deserves a plug, leave a comment so we can all take a look.
