That shit is still under invitation-only beta. Is that only to make dorks like Jason Kottke feel good about themselves? How lame is that?

Anyway like everything else on Cosmodrome we do it better. Nevermind that FFFFOUND is the most read feed on my Reader. Observe:

The Most Magically Idiosyncratic Way to "Sell Out" Your "History," The Most Magically Lo-Tech way to Freak Me Out!

And by sell out, I don't mean that in a bad way. I'm hyper-stoked that Tay Zonday can be commercial even a little bit. He won a Youtube award. I've been freaking out about a bunch of things this week, and when I saw this today I had to get some of them out. This guy is the black Josh Groban, but except he immediately sold his hyper-repetitive song about black history to Dr. Pepper to make one of the most amazing commercials I've ever seen:

Serial Filmmaking

Michael Haneke has brought his maniacal art horror to the United States, remaking his 1997 film Funny Games for American audiences. What he has given us, however, is not your average Hollywood remake – snipped and streamlined for the more delicate stateside viewer, much as Ron Howard’s imminent remake of Haneke’s 2003 Caché is likely to be. No, this is what they call a shot-for-shot remake – a genre that, to my knowledge, only includes one other film, Gus Van Sant’s Psycho.

Critics have often compared Haneke to Hitchcock, or at least cited him as a reference point. This does seem an apt comparison, especially for Funny Games. The two filmmakers share a common instinct: to deconstruct and parody the family, often by putting a murderer in their midst (usually a stand-in for the filmmaker), and softly – or not so softly – suggesting a question: Who is more morally repulsive – the transgressive murderer or the repressive family members?
