Bodies are weird

I have a cold for what feels like the eleventy-Nth time this winter. “Intelligent design,” my ass. I am forced to assume that the proponents of that theory have either never spent a day doing shots of Robitussin and sucking cough drops to banish the lingering taste of snot, or believe that it’s all part of The Plan.

In more cheerful news, “Why Vagina,” the next installation of Isabella Rossellini’s short-film series, Green Porno, will soon be up at sundancechannel.com. You can read some of the poem she recites in the film in New York Magazine. My favorite lines: “I will develop a tunnel and it will be a labyrinth/It will be species-specific so I am not screwed by a bear…”

Finally, fans of Chuck Jones should tune in to Turner Classic Movies tonight, which is devoting four solid of programming to works by and about the man.
