Isabella Rossellini does bug porn

The web site hosting the stills has apparently already flipped over and started waving its legs in the air, but:

Green Porno is a series of very short films conceived, written, co-directed by and featuring Isabella Rossellini about the sex life of bugs, insects and various creatures. The films are a comical but insightful study of the curious ways certain bugs "make love". "Green" echoes the ecological movement of today and our interest in nature, and "Porno" alludes to the racy ways bugs, insects and other creatures have sex, if human, these acts would not be allowed to be screened or air on television, considered instead as most filthy and obscene.

Each film is executed in a very simple childlike manner. They are a playful mixture of real world and cartoon. Each episode begins with Isabella speaking to the camera "If I were a..." (firefly, spider, dragonfly etc.). She then transforms into the male of the species explaining in a simple yet direct dialogue the actual act of species-specific fornication. The costumes, colorful sets and backdrops as well as the female insects contribute to the playfulness of the films. The contrast of this "naïf" expression and filthy sex practices adds to the comicality of Green Porno.

Sundance Channel Signs Up Isabella Rossellini For 5 More 'Green Porno' Shorts

Sundance Channel has commissioned Isabella Rossellini to create five additional short films for her series titled "Green Porno." There will be a total of eight films in the series. Sundance Channel had initially funded three earlier pieces which have recently been selected to premiere at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival. A selection of Rossellini's "Green Porno" shorts will also debut at the 2008 Berlin international Film Festival.

Sundance Channel plans to premiere these shorts on mobile devices and online in spring 2008. Once they make their digital debut the "Green Porno" shorts will air as interstitial pieces on Sundance Channel.

yeah, how about that.

Chafee remains contemptuous of Democrats who helped Bush to gin up this unnecessary invasion:
That includes New York Sen. Hillary Clinton, whom Chafee says put her presidential ambitions above standing up to Mr. Bush and the rush to war in Iraq.

"I find it surprising now, in 2008, how many Democrats are running for president after shirking their constitutional duty to check and balance this president," writes Chafee...

"They argue that the president duped them into war, but getting duped does not exactly recommend their leadership. Helping a rogue president start an unnecessary war should be a career-ending lapse of judgment."

no party for you.

Bug 392686: Mozilla ten year anniversary party.

I haven't been even remotely involved in the project for nine years, so none of this really has anything to do with me (and hosting their party would have only cost me money) but I still think it's pretty sad that the anniversary is going to go completely un-celebrated.

I kind of expected their response to be, "But we have a perfectly good cafeteria", or "Oh, we're just going to get a booth at the Tied House instead", but this is even lamer. Saying "We're not having an anniversary party because we're celebrating all year" is like saying "You don't get a birthday party because every day is equally special!"

Remember that time when you entered the science fair, and then they decided to give everybody first prize, even the kid who ate paste? It's like that.

I really shouldn't care about this. But, geez.



Update: Hey, they changed their minds! There will in fact be a Mozilla Ten Year Anniversary Party at DNA Lounge on Mon, Mar 31. Details TBA.

Update 2: Scratch that, they changed their minds again. No party for you.
