I've been working at my summer job, which has prevented me from posting as I wanted to. I'm a canvasser for an environmental group, which is fun and sucky by turns, so I'm looking for a nice boring job at a bookstore with better hours.
I have now seen Jaws and rectified my failure as a film fan. It was lots of fun, in a gory, totally scientifically-inaccurate, awesome way. I called the way that they killed the shark very early on. The music really made some of the scenes, I have to say. Major props to John Williams. Also, Matt Hooper really, really reminds me of Hodgins on Bones.
for researchgrrrl: Alkali metal explosions
British accents and exploding metals! What's not to love?
for maribou413: Autopsy videos
More awesomely-accented science videos, this time autopsies and plastination with Gunther von Hagens and his AWESOME and NONSENSICAL hat. Warning for the non bio geeks: graphic depiction of human internal squidgy bits.
for, uh, everyone: Dean het vids
The product of a vid contest over at the_dean_show, these vids are basically Dean Gen!Porn in pretty packaging, set to "Heterosexual Man." Mmmm, Dean. (The one by beluga is basically a slideshow with a Sam "voiceover" - I'd skip it. But the other two are very nice indeed.)
