Microsoft and movie...
I was most amused by the videos at www.stayathomeserver.com; it's an advert for Microsoft's Windows Home Server, and viral marketing at its finest. My favourite is the 'computer expert' clip. "Everyone gets a cup, by the way."
Beth sent me a link to a forthcoming film that I'm very much looking forward to seeing. It's called Be Kind Rewind, and from the write-up it seems to have just the right blend of surrealism and comedy to appeal to me.
The fact the writer and director is Michel Gondry - who directed some of my favourite pop videos - endorses it even more, so I'm certainly looking forward to seeing it when it comes out. I'm hoping it'll be as compelling as Being John Malkovich, which I would certainly recommend if you like unusual films!

We saw the trailer for Be Kind Rewind at the theater the other night and it looks like a lot of fun. And, for what it's worth, Juno is also worth a look.
