Hotel Chevalier is a short film (12′) directed by Wes Anderson, starring Jason Schwartzman and Natalie Portman. Hat tip to SheComesFirst for turning me on to it. It is the prelude to the film Darjeeling Limited. You can watch the entire short film on YouTube…it’s pretty damned cool.

Just found this article after I logged out of my hotmail account. Enjoy, people, Lance only brings you the very best of the Web. Who’s heard of Hotel Chevalier? Not me! Also, since I posted this, am I one of the “lusty Internet peeping Toms” that the article is referring to? I want to bounce ping pong balls off of the rump in that picture. I’m getting a minor chub right now.
Friday haiku at HCWDB, sheer poetry that will make your teeth cry. No, SuperMang is not me, I have way bigger pecs. I do want to flicker my tongue at Lana like an undersexed snake.
It’s taken me a few days to get to this, but here it is. Instead of making a bunch of resolutions I’m going to try to give my year two foci. These are areas of personal development that I’m driving forward. I think this is a more strategic way to handle my projects for the year and it’ll be more productive than making a bunch of vague resolutions. I got this from Steve Pavlina’s 2010 Focus post…be sure to spend a few minutes checking out what he said.
I thought that DD’s post on her year in review was a great way to review, encapsulate, and reflect on what had passed, so I decided to give it a go as well. It seems like the best way to set myself up for my New Year’s resolutions, which will be my next post. 2009 was kind of a wild ride, and I’m aiming for more stability in 2010.
January started off kind of rough, as I was battling a kidney infection, turning out not to be a great snowboarder (despite Jake’s attempts to get me to enjoy it), and financial woes (hey, what else is new, the recession was in full swing). The big highlight was the Dooney & Burke wallet that Jake’s mom got me in a failed attempt to manipulate me into getting him to make up with her. I loooove this wallet and still admire it on a practically daily basis. Continued
I love it. Beautifulpeople.com, the site that only lets in hotties, has supposedly given 5000 members the boot for putting on too much weight over the holidays. It did this by reviewing new pictures that members had uploaded. Sounds like a big PR stunt to me…who uploads pictures of themselves looking that much fatter to an online dating site?
Money quote from site founder Robert Hintze:
“Letting fatties roam the site is a direct threat to our business model and the very concept for which BeautifulPeople.com was founded.”
