And I'm Floating Like God in his Heaven:
I did some surfing the other day and somehow ended up at The Brick Testament. The website has a lot of passages from the old and the new testament illustrated with pictures of a cast of, get this, Lego characters. And what makes it truly remarkable is that the scenarios are very elaborate and the pictures are gorgeuos. I've picked out a couple of my favourite pictures, so you can see what I'm talking about.
It's very impressive stuff. And then Jesus said onto the disciples:"Don't call me Shirley!"
Oh, Roger Avary has posted the teaser poster for his version of Bret East Ellis' The Rules of Attraction. How cool is that poster?

Lookin in My Mirror and Not a Jacker in Sight and Everything is Alright:
It's been a busy, but good day today. I had a talk with someone from the public relations company today, and I'm now officially running the Scandinavian internet campaign for a movie, which will open later this year. I'm not going to talk too much about my work as experience shows that it's best to keep work and blog separated. But I'm very excited about this new gig and I have been working on my assignment for hours and have atleast another hour of work in front of me, before I can go to bed.
Today was also the first day of Blogcritics.com, which featured a live interview with Cary Sherman of the RIAA. You can read it here and my review of Whip It On by The Raveonettes has also been published now. You can already find a lot of interesting reviews and articles there and because so many articles have already been submitted a lot more stuff will be added over the next couple of days.

She Blinded Me With Science:
I just came home from a night out of drinking beer and discussing evolution and science, so I really should be going to bed. We were discussing the blind faith people have in science and whether there ever will come discoveries as important as discovering that the Earth is round and that it isn't the center of the universe. No conclusions were drawn, but beer and white russians were consumed.
But before I hit the hay I just thought I'd publish this press release first:
I'm very excited to see the Blogcritics.com site later today and I hope you'll stop by as well.
I've gotten some feedback on the Worst Collaboration post. Ross left his thought in the comments and on his website and Eric continued the discussion at his site.
I'm getting a call tomorrow morning with more details on my new public relations job, so I really should get to bed now.

I Am The Very Model of a Modern Major-General:
I had a job interview with an English PR company months ago, where it was decided that when they got campaigns in Scandinavia I would somehow be involved. Well, I just received an email today, where they asked if I could work on a campaign for a movie, which will open here in September. I've received some materiale and I should get a phone call later today with more information. This is pretty exciting as I've never really done any PR work before, but I think if I get a few pointers I'll be just fine.
Yesterday I got together with my brother and a friend to watch the Community Shield game. It was a pretty good game and it was nice to see Gilberto O'Sullivan (as my bro calls him) score on a perfect delivery from Bergkamp. The team looks really promising even with Pires and Ljungberg injured.
The AGF - Silkeborg game didn't go quite as well making it five years since the boys from Aarhus last won a game in Silkeborg. And why Josta Dladla didn't start in is beyond me as he is the only one on the team with any technical skills worth writing about. Oh well, better luck next week against OB.
Do you Googlewhack? I had a hit last night with Dadaist Homestretch (combinig my love of football with my love for modern art), which put be on the list of people, who've whacked Google. But apparently it's easier than I thought because in a mere 12 hours more than 60 people had entered new whacks, so my name won't be up there for long.
