Ahead of what is likely to be a good few evening hours in front of a report I’m writing, this is exactly what I need:

I never watched the movie but I can’t imagine that any bit of it tops this for sheer joyous intensity. Elsewhere, the whole Jack Black thing can get a bit much, but when he sets himself loose in his own universe it’s somehow delightful and hilarious. And sunny.

That title reminds me that I should write about the movie Sunshine sometime. I really liked it, despite the silly ending. Here’s a trailer (NB watch in HD, full-screen, for best effect). Boy, do I like trailers. Edit: stupid Youtube has disabled embedding of the HD trailer. So the one below is kind of crappy resolution; click here for the full thing.

OK: onward.
