12 Jump Street

WTF it up with this news story about a 29-year-old sex offender posing as a 12-year-old and enrolling in middle school? And not only did he manage it, he managed it at a couple of schools, for a couple of months, without anybody saying "Hey, that 12-year-old is awfully f'in developed!" Are people really that willing to just go along with whatever they see? Meanwhile, check out how the guy's "live-in sex partner" was very upset to find out that his partner wasn't a minor! God, there's a majorly messed up after-school special in this.

Garbo = As Good As Chocolate

Ah. Just watched one of the zillion Greta Garbo movies Mom got me for my birthday. This was a silent I'd never heard of, The Mysterious Lady, and plot-wise it wasn't much, but it afforded amply opportunity to ogle Ms. Garbo in all manner of completely anachronystic "pre-WWI" satin dresses, with her face lit by highly improbably lighting, so that made it very satisfying. I'll have to do screen caps later.

P.S. Yep, new icon. Not from that movie, but from Queen Christina. And for truly obscure trivia, the throne she's on was later used by The Joker in Tim Burton's Batman.
