Oh my God, go here.

It is the 404 page for b3ta. Some of these are HIDEOUSLY offensive and some of these are the funniest things I have seen in weeks.

And now I shall return to my ridiculous crush on Michael Sheen who has a glorious Welsh burr, messy hair and just told Miranda Sawyer, who talked about Laurence Olivier's process of building a character, that when he is building up a characterisation he "starts with the arse". I love you Michael Sheen. You, me, Guy Garvey and Barack Obama are getting married, right now. Some of you lot can join our polyamorous union as long as I don't have to do the cooking or the washing up.

I went to see Milk today. I really liked it but I thought it couldn't quite decide whether it wanted to be a mainstream biopic or something less naturalistic à la Gus Van Sant usually. It was very unexplicit, unconfrontational, almost sanitised, as though he wanted to avoid alienating any potential audience member.

There was a moment where he did a Brady Bunch style screen-split, which jarred because it was exceptional and unnaturalistic in this film. I think he either needed to lose those moments or have more of them. As it was it felt like Van Sant couldn't decide what it wanted to be.

Sean Penn is excellent in the central role, conveying how charismatic and infuriating Milk was, and Josh Brolin was tremendous in what had to have been a tough role. I enjoyed the film very much but I thought it could've been a great film and it was only decent.

And now The Culture Show is talking about The Wire. They have an interview with Ed Burns on writing the show and Generation Kill. Everyone at work is talking about The Wire. People are posting on the noticeboard about The Wire. M is lending out the boxsets like a crack dealer trying to build his market.

I think the universe is telling me to watch The Wire. I am RESISTING. RESISTING, I tell you.

"The trick is to make them people"

Goddammit, I am going to have watch the bloody bastard Wire.
