295. The best way to tell someone your pregnant is to move an entire living room set to their lawn and stick an unlit pipe in your mouth.

296. Next to the "raw power" of Iggy & the Stooges everything else seems a bit precious in comparison.

297. Babies comes out not covered in viscera, but blood and guts.

298. Hamburger phones are just like really awkward to talk on.

299. Dogs are farty (think mine already taught me... And the one right next to me just taught me again).

300. There's too much to learn from Ellen and her movies, so we need to try for 500!

Woohoo going for 500, ballsy :). There's no other Ellen related news at the moment so this is kinda the only thing to talk about here. My posts per day count alone was higher than the number of posts yesterday :lol2:.

304. It's possible to be a huge animal rights activist without being a vegetarian (great for me, can't stop eating meat but I feel guilty), and it comes down to things as simple as what brands you buy.

305. Louis XIV was the first person to eat meals in courses.

306. If someone does not like the food you made it is appropriate to offer to shove it up their ass.

I thought Ellen was using a pawn though, :uhoh: - which changes the symbolism - :laugh:

311. She seems to only fall in love with clones, dudes that can freeze things or awkward Minnesotan boys with gold shorts.
In the country dead bodies live in swamps and ditches and shallow graves. A man dumps the body of a girl in a ditch. The body rotts melts into slime. Flowers pop up where the body lies, seeds fly out of the flowers and a bee sucks the flowers and makes honey. Then the family of the girl buys the honey from the store. And the family eats the girl.

Definitely a bishop... then again maybe I need to go a 3rd time myself just to check too :lol2: .

312. "I'm taking an SAT prep course" is a fail proof way to trick your parents into giving you time to do anything you want, which may or may not be roller derby.

313. Kick ass indie music, particularly Kimya Dawson, is an excellent supplement to a kick ass quirky indie comedy.

Jim, you don't need to watch it a fourth time. It's indeed a bishop. A pawn is much smaller than the figure shown in the movie :yellowink: I should know this because I played chess at school for several years :brightly:

Well I do, of course, trust that you're right, but ........ I think I'll have to force myself to go one more time, just to check for sure :yellowink: :cheekygrin:

315. Bishops and pawns are apparently difficult to distinguish :lol2:. :)
316. Winter is exciting because you get to wear sweaters.
317. Great actresses attract great fans (yes you people :totalhappy: ).
318. Vanishing of the Bees is playing in Venice, CA tonight, 7:00pm - 10:30pm at The G2 Gallery, 1503 Abbot Kinney Blvd. Venice, CA, and somewhere in New York, NY tomorrow which is named in a link my computer won't open. Just thought I'd pass on info from her Facebook page ;) .

319. Kurt Vonnegut is an amazing author, been told by teachers but I don't trust THEM :sassy: .

Just for reference on 318., EPO has an event calendar which Dominik recently updated with the "Vanishing of the Bees" showings:

Oh I saw it on her Facebook, guess I'll check the calendar now, I wanna see it at some point, but it seems to be avoiding me, I leave to go to New York right after it shows in New York, and right before it shows 20-30 minutes away in Venice :laugh: .

Also since I mentioned Mark's age earlier, after watching Juno yet another time, making this 4 in a month, I caught a little problem. The song was released in 1972, yes? Mark claims that it's older than he is. He also says he danced to it at his senior prom, which would make him 18 or at youngest 17 when he danced to it. He says "This is how we did it in '88" which would put his birth year at 1970 or 1971. Hmmm, curious, especially since the song was not only released in '72 but recorded only a few months prior to release. Oh well, humans make mistakes, guess it just makes him all the more of a human character, perfect for the movie :lol2: .

321. If you are attractive and become a famous actress, men from all over the world will write poetry on your Facebook page professing their love for you. True story, and all the Canadians say "PSH please you don't even live in the same country as her" :laugh: .

^^^ Listening to that interview as we speak.

323. There's nothing more awesome than going home to your favourite cafe drinking fair-trade coffee with a book!
