Who says the Germans don’t have a sense of whimsy? Some fellow has recreated Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” video with Lego men (for the vid, go to the bottom of the page where it says “Technische Daten & Download” – and be patient, it’s a big download). Dig the big dance number at the end – that’s just nutty. Zagnut nutty. The saddest part is the Lego Jacko has a more realistic nose than the human one. Link from House of Hotsauce.
Don’t know if I mentioned it, but the two Neko Case/Sadies shows at the start of April are being recorded for a live album. That will kick so much ass, it will have to recruit a second ass to handle the surplus of kicking.

The security tags in the new US currency gives new meaning to “Money to burn”.

Traveler’s Diagram has an interesting round up of what everyone who’s anyone in Hollywood is up to right now.
