Here is an eBay auction (expires in a few weeks? Local copies of photographs: #1, #2, #3, and #4) with a seriously broken laptop/notebook. This woman must be very strong to get her leather boot in the screen. I can't imagine her kicking someone's or my butt. Ouch!

Worth1000's Doctored Images: Modern Mod Ren 5 -- If modern celebrities were the subjects of (slightly less) modern art.

| | |

Modern Mod Ren 5 is the current theme on Worth1000. Its doctored images theme is basically if modern famous celebrities were the subjects of (slightly less) modern art. It depicts a modern celebrity as the model in a piece of fine art -- not done in the classical photorealist style. The piece is with a distinctive style (i.e. brush strokes, specific textures, exaggerated features, etc.) like impressionism, pointilism, cubism, charcoal sketches, or anything so long as it's not photorealistic.

50 Top Movie Deaths

| | | | |

Compfused.com posted a link (Warning: Second page has a screen capture of women's breasts so it is not work friendly and offensive to some people) to the 50 Top Movie Deaths. "Total Film Magazine, in its July 2004 issue, provided an article on the 50 Greatest Movie Deaths throughout cinematic history. Their results below, based on a non-scientific poll taken from interviews with film critics, listed the 50 most highly-rated death scenes. Deaths in death scenes can be either cool, teary, metaphoric, grisly, scary, bloody, amusing, violent, transcendental, unforgettable, spectacular, frightening, funny, or shocking. The victim's death may be well-deserved, accidental, expected, sudden, or intentional. Some effective death scenes even occur off-screen."
