dwg: Should I be breaking out the photoshop to paste a raptor in the background of the Snow White picture? This has now become my knee-jerk reaction to misty blue forests. At the very least, there needs to be some kind of explosion happening to justify my retinas being blinded by that shade of blue. e__e
cleolinda: I would actually really enjoy a raptor, I think.
dwg: This turned out better than expected. Now instead of being "did I leave the gas on?" she's like "hunh, there's nothing to those stories about raptor infested woods..."
So I took it to Twitter.
@cleolinda: Raptors make everything better.
@Queenofthedorks: @cleolinda noo there goes our velociraptor free work place policy. http://img.ly/6wJz we were doing so well too.
Meanwhile: new Made of Fail podcast, Episode Forty-Four: Mischief Managed--the Harry Potter review with Kevin, Rinna, Mark and me, with Dayna in the non-Potter parts, and an extensive report on the North American Discworld convention. (Listening to it again: "Florida is just basically all coast" was a joke, sorry about that. I've been there, I know it's not.)
Speaking of the Made of Fail family, Dayna needs help. To that end, @JK_Woodward: "Have you ever wanted a comic pro to draw you your very own comic page? learn more here."
Total Recall, The Amazing Spider-Man, and (sigh) Ghost Rider 2
Comic-Con/Panel: 'The Amazing Spider-Man,' 'Total Recall' and 'Ghost Rider 2' Conquer Fan Expectation.

Comic Con 2011: Live Blogging The Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengence Panel.
Report: Spider-Man star Rhys Ifans arrested at Comic-Con: "Ifans, who portrays Dr. Curt Conners a/k/a The Lizard, was on hand among cast and filmmakers yesterday to debut footage in Hall H; apparently, the incident occurred when Ifans “shov[ed] a female security guard” and “insulted U.S.” prior to the panel. Developing… [The Wrap]"
BUT THEN: Sony Denies Report That New 'Spider-Man' Villain Rhys Ifans Arrested At Comic-Con: "It was a minor incident involving a security guard and smoking backstage. Police were called. But I was told Rhys was not arrested and was not handcuffed by the police. I am told he was given a ticket." Ifans then was introduced at the panel as the new Spider-Man villain Lizard. If Sony changes its story to me, I'll let you know but TheCrap is a notoriously inaccurate website. In the meantime I'm sure people will say this reeks of a publicity stunt."

@dantheshive: Wow. Even the new Spider-Man logo has lines pointing crotchward. I've gotta hand it to them. This movie chose a theme and is sticking to it.
@scottEweinberg: "It's how we do it on television!" RT @slashfilm: Lindelof Discusses The Secrecy Of ‘Prometheus.’
Apparently this is how they work. Damon Lindelof: "It's a SECRET." Ridley Scott: "There's TWO androids!" Together, they fight crime.

Breaking Dawn, Cosmopolis & Bel Ami
Bill Condon Talks Breaking Dawn Secrecy and Honeymoon: What Will He Keep From Fans? I like how Movieline gets right down to asking him about, and I quote, "the idea that Bill Condon would want to direct a Twilight movie!"
An unintended result of the Breaking Dawn panel: a look at, and explanation for, what turned out to be Robert Pattinson's spectacularly bad haircut for a scene in Cronenberg's Cosmopolis.
@cleolinda: I like how our joke theory about rampaging fangirls and fleeing a salon was only half wrong.
@fuggirls: I know, right?!
@cleolinda: And if you count the Paul Giamatti stalker character as a fangirl, it might be entirely right.
Back to hairfuller days: Bel Ami Trailer Helps Women Live Out Their Robert Pattinson Seduction Fantasies.

And then this happened
SDCC Exclusive: Jason Momoa on Conan the Barbarian; @EW: It’s not easy to be a barbarian. Stopping by EW’s VIP lounge at @HardRockSD Jason Momoa.
Yeah... about Jason Momoa. Trigger warning for HOLY SHIT WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU. This is what happens when you say you love that fantasy shows let you, as an actor, "rape beautiful women":
“I’ve never been a part of anything remotely close to this,” Momoa says, when asked to compare working on a Sci Fi Channel show to working on an HBO show. He loves that scifi and fantasy shows let you “rip someone’s throat out and rape beautiful women.”
@particle_person: Is that for real?!
@cleolinda: There's a link in the comments to the actual video.
@particle_person: *facepalm* (I like how the other panel ppl were like ACTUAL FACEPALM.)
@cleolinda: I like how every single person is facepalming except Peter Dinklage, who is just straight up "The hell?"
So... that's a downer note. I think we need raptors photoshopped in.
@Colin_Hanks: Oh, one last #ComicCon tweet. To the girl dressed up as a Rockford Peach: I saw you and you are awesome.
