Blogger has decided to cap its label structure at 5000 labels per blog, which, believe it or not, renders this blogging platform almost useless for me as a research tool. So I've decided to finally bite the bullet and move to WordPress, effective immediately. I haven't got things looking quite like I want yet, but the basic idea is up and new posts are going to start appearing over there beginning immediately.

Sorry to force the update to your bookmarks. Hope you'll follow me over.

The wisdom of the market has determined originality is overrated.
Which is the only original feature film to make it into the the top 20 grossing films of this decade (so far)?This is my surprised face.
Finding Nemo, which lands at #15 with $864.6 million.
If you take a look at the top 30 films from this decade, there is only one other original film property among the bunch, that being…
DreamWorks Animation’s Kung Fu Panda, #30 spot with $631.7 million.
In fact, out of the top 50 grossing films of this decade, there are only 9 movies based on original properties. And five of those nine films were created by Pixar Animation Studios.

How to speak like a 1950s hipster.
Today's the last day of my twenties. Tomorrow, I am old, as depicted in the following synopsis-of-my-life Spiegelman comic that was given to me by Amalle when I passed my exams:
Now entering panel four. Banana peel approaching. Abandon all hope.
