Random Links - Mother's Day Edition

Mother's Day.

Yep.

I have just one question: where's Children's Day? Oh, that's right. There *is* a Children's Day but it's celebrated just about everywhere but the United States.

Is this fair?

Nope.

Should every child, young and old, refuse to celebrate Mother's Day in order to finally shine a light on this glaring oversight? Where's our brunch, people? Where's our awkward phone calls and last-minute Hallmark cards? Huh? Huh?

Anyway, here's another batch of random links:


  • $665 million for a statewide emergency radio station? That money could be better spent on a bottle of whiskey for every man, woman and child in Oregon. If we're ever hit by a disaster severe enough to knock out communication statewide, which would you rather have by your side? A broadcast telling you we're all screwed or a fifth of Jack Daniels?


  • I think I'd rather eat a deep-friend Twinkie, honestly, than one of these.


  • Is this a grim portent of Portland's future? If so, this place is starting look worse than that alternate Hill Valley in Back to the Future Part 2. I mean, at least the middle class can afford to live and play in an urban war zone.


  • What would happen if Bruce Willis decided to show up semi-randomly on a message board overloaded with cranky film geeks to defend the next Die Hard movie? Click here to find out.


  • Here's a link to a blog post that offers a rundown on the greatest long tracking shots in cinema history, complete with clips. Those awesome shots from Children of Men come in somewhere in the middle.


  • Here's a great news story to bring up when you're eating brunch with your mother on Sunday.


  • Here's another one. You're welcome.


  • And finally...
