Leaves falling to the ground, randomness in the air

More school shootings. October's not going to be any better, is it?

(Are we in a retrograde of some kind? Again?)

Before you get too deep into your wiki, notice at the bottom left corner that there is a tagging function. Yeah. I have a lot of pages to go back and tag now. Just click the +, type a word in the box (Characters, Settings, whatever), and you're good to go. Then click a tag you've made, and through that you can get to "all page tags used on this wiki" (http://whatever.pbwiki.com/tags.php?pedit, where "whatever" is your actual wiki name. Click on that link and change it to make it work), which is helpful for adding or deleting. Sadly, they're saying they want to keep the system "simple," but hopefully people will bitch about it enough that they'll eventually be more flexible. Also, I noticed that you can't put more than twenty on a single entry--which sounds like enough, but I started going through and tagging character entries, for example, with the titles of all the stories the character appeared in; whether s/he was male or female, so I could then pull up a list of all women, or all men; all locations (i.e., countries or cities) the character visited or originated from; any groups the character was part of (like Dr. Munro's Inventors Club); "deaths" if I'd planned on something happening to that character; and so on. You can see how a main character like Rose Hannah maxed out pretty quickly, and I wasn't even done with her yet.

The other problem is, they don't seem to list the tags in alphabetical order at all--I can't even figure out what order they are using, because it doesn't seem to be frequency, but I'm not sure it's "most recent" either, although the latter seems most likely.

Director fights to get out of father's shadow. To my shock, this was not about Sofia Coppola.

George Michael Arrested on Drug Charges. I am seriously beginning to wonder if this man is ever going to be able to pull his shit together.

Seven-metre fingernails win place in book of records. With undated picture of much shorter nails, which is scary enough. "Redmond, 65, earned an entry in the latest edition of Guinness World Records with the world's longest fingernails that have now reached a resplendent 24 feet 7 inches (7.51metres)." That's got to be some kind of typo. Twenty-four feet. Jesus. I can't even fathom that.

Discworld Cake.

Warning: many of these pictures are enormously hi-res, and some movies have a hundred stills or more (see Perfume in particular). All from filmz.ru (yes, I waded through all that Russian, which might have been ancient Aramaic for all I could understand of it, so you wouldn't have to). Enjoy.
