Josie and the Pussycats was such a goddamn good movie. It's ridiculous. And the soundtrack is pure gold. Check out this clip of the climax--the good punky bit starts a little ways in, give it thirty-four seconds.

WikiBible

I have no idea if the actual content is any good but it's the best idea ever. The actual name of the project is WikiWrit.

Oh my God, it all makes sense. An entirely new way to look at Star Wars ep4 in the light of the first three that's really a whole lot more interesting than the first three.

Anacrusis again

Have I mentioned lately just how awesome Anacrusis is? Blink fiction is apparently the term, if you're willing to be that pretentious--101 words a day, self-contained and whole, some funny, some sad, some adventurous. They aren't truly stories, there's no beginning or end--they sound kind of like excerpts from novels. They all work as their own thing, and most of them are unconnected to each other, but one appears every once in a while with recurring characters that occasionally overlap--taken together, one character's thread, doesn't quite tell a whole coherent story, but the characterization is phenomenal and what you do get about their stories is really interesting. I suggest reading Chicago (intense, dramatic) or The Chosen Ones (actiony, funny) first. Start at the bottom and work up.
