They Are Remaking Carrie Again

It almost seems like the dust hasn’t settled on the last Carrie remake (The Rage). Now I learn that they are making another one. I didn’t think much of this until I found out that Chloe Grace Moretz is the actress who played Hit-Girl in Kick Ass. I’m terrible at remembering the names of actors and hardly ever pay attention to them, but she did a fairly good job in Kick Ass and she’ll have 3 years of maturity to add to the part.

It could be good. To be honest so long as it has the phrase “They’re all going to laugh at you” in the script I’ll be happy…

Twitter Wine! Kinda…

I was skimming through the website of Yiying Lu The person who designed the Fail Whale and noticed that she’d done the design for the label of ASDA’s own brand California wine…

I can only find the “California Fruity White Wine” on ASDA’s website but that doesn’t mean they don’t have the others in store.

Hows that for a nice bit of social networking trivia?

Update: I’ve also found the Rose, Zinfandel and Juicy Red on ASDA’s website.

Fail whale Cake

The “Fail Whale” is a fairly iconic image that anyone who’s used twitter has probably seen at some point, unless you never use the web interface or have been really lucky. This cake was created by Mariana Pugliese a cake designer from Buenos Aires.

Interestingly the Fail Whale was designed by a Chinese illustrator Yiying Lu and was originally an elephant:
