Playing with Wordle iz fun.



I've been having way too much fun with Wordle, which creates "word clouds" out of text pasted into the leetle box.

First, because I wanted to see whether I mentioned Deadpool or Deathstroke more in Weapon Chapter 6, I did a Chapter 6 word cloud. And it came out looking totally cool. Bonus points because they have a color set that's mostly red and black. W00t.

Naturally I couldn't stop THERE. How could I leave Wordle before seeing what Weird Al's Angry White Boy Polka looked like?

Or LOLCat Bible John 6 ("Jebus giveh cheezburgerz to 5K").

And, just for cleolinda, a choice snippet of Twilight Chapter 13. (Edward...glistening...sparkled! If I had the whole chapter it would probably be even more ridiculously silly.)

This thing is awesome.

...

I've been having lots of fun lately, what with the recent vacation and friends in town, but I'm going to do a separate entry on that due to picture-intensiveness. *g*

...

And now, in linkspam, mainly via our good Cleo:

Eustace Clarence Scrubb cast in Voyage of the Dawn Treader.
I approve. He looks right for the part and sounds like a fun and intelligent kid.

(And, apropros of nothing, gratuitous shot of Edmund the Just Badass. Skandar Keynes rocks.)

In other movie news, Will Christian Bale be Robin Hood?
OH PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE. I finally watched American Psycho (with Dave and Jeremy) last night, and was reminded once again how talented and gorgeous great CB is. Plz to have more CB moviez now. (Esp. more where he is in some sort of heroic role, as opposed to complete psycho role, although the movie was quite good and gratuitous naked CB is A-OK with me.)

Silver Surfer not getting the green light?
You know, the Silver Surfer is a cool idea and/or plot device, but he's never really appealed to me as a main character. Of course, I never saw Fantastic Four 2, so maybe he was more interesting on screen than in the comics, but...well, anyway. There are other comic book movies I'd rather see made. (OMG how fantastic would a Cable & Deadpool movie be???)

Will Atlas Shrugged ever be a movie?
I love the book, but man, I can see why trying to make it into a movie could be daunting. Talk about mammoth texts with a lot of nuanced plot to get through. Whew.

More movie news: Wanted's McAvoy faced danger.
Um...why haven't I heard of this movie? Seriously, how did I completely miss it? Anyway, McAvoy is cool.

And finally, LOOOK. Watchmen action figures from DC and others.

Hee! I put in the entire chapter and it wasn't as fun. You know, all those stupid boring words like "said." It might be interesting to put in one of my commentary entries, though. The biggest word would probably be "WHAT?"
particle_person From: particle_person Date: June 22nd, 2008 05:11 pm (UTC) (current file)
Yeah, I just tried the whole chapter and I got a huge "EYES," "HAND" and "FACE," which I guess does pretty much sum up that chapter.
cleolinda From: cleolinda Date: June 22nd, 2008 05:30 pm (UTC) (current file)
Exactly. I was very disappointed.
foresthouse From: foresthouse Date: June 22nd, 2008 05:39 pm (UTC) (current file)
But your commentary on Book 1 was fun to see - I linked it below. I like that "death" is the same size as "ponies." HEE.
cleolinda From: cleolinda Date: June 22nd, 2008 06:07 pm (UTC) (current file)
Heh--I did the second book commentary and the biggest word was BELLA in, like, 600-pt font. Obvious, and yet somehow fitting.

Oh, and someone on my journal linked to a wordle they did of "Jabberwocky," which was awesome.
foresthouse From: foresthouse Date: June 22nd, 2008 06:13 pm (UTC) (current file)
Oh, totally cool. There are so many crazy words in that poem.
foresthouse From: foresthouse Date: June 22nd, 2008 05:11 pm (UTC) (current file)
Hah! Well, they have a setting where you can "remove common words" which would get rid of all the "the" type words. Don't know if it would take care of "said" though. Maybe give it a try?

The biggest word would probably be "WHAT?"

Yeah, that or maybe "OMG" or "HEE!" or possibly "help me help me this book is crazy." Well, maybe not that last one.

Hah, awesome. Also:

Cleolinda's thoughts on Twilight, let me show you them:

Actually, re: Nottingham... Bale would be playing a total dick version of Robin Hood in that. The Sheriff is the good guy in that script.
foresthouse From: foresthouse Date: June 22nd, 2008 05:12 pm (UTC) (current file)
Oh, really? Huh.

Well, at least he wouldn't be eating people. I don't think. Heh.
fabfunk From: fabfunk Date: June 22nd, 2008 07:29 pm (UTC) (current file)
This just in from reliable sources- Bale NOT Robin Hood.

Booo!

BOO.

Dude, I can't see CB as Robin Hood, but then again, many doubted he'd make a decent BRuce Wayne/Batman. Those people were probably on crack though.
foresthouse From: foresthouse Date: June 22nd, 2008 05:41 pm (UTC) (current file)
Hah. Well, I guess I just assume CB will make whatever role awesome and totally PWN it. *g* But I wasn't aware this script makes Robin Hood a bad guy. Now I can really see him doing it.
library_of_sex From: library_of_sex Date: June 22nd, 2008 05:43 pm (UTC) (current file)
That would be AWESOME! I wanna see some BAD CB again!
skyblade From: skyblade Date: June 22nd, 2008 11:51 pm (UTC) (current file)
Deathstroke will never win at googlefights. He simply uses too many codenames--otherwise known as Jean Grey syndrome.

I love the Silver Surfer, but a blockbuster of a CGI guy doing angsty soliloquies is probably not money in the bank.

I find Pitt/Jolie's fascination with Ayn Rand to be a little baffling, and perhaps a lot poserish. (Except I guess a mutual architecture fetish.)
foresthouse From: foresthouse Date: June 23rd, 2008 02:24 pm (UTC) (current file)
Well, Deadpool also has several names and aliases. :)

Yeah, I can't really see what the Silver Surfer movie would be about besides that. Hrm.

Re: Silver surfer

I like Silver Surfer as a character, but FF2 sucked so very badly. I can;t believe they do a movie spinoff from that crap.
foresthouse From: foresthouse Date: June 23rd, 2008 02:24 pm (UTC) (current file)
I never saw #2, but I remember thinking #1 was fun, but not that substantial. I could see #2 and the SS one being like that, too.

I like the Silver Surfer, but I don't see how a good movie focusing on him will be commercially viable. He's really a product of the Sixties and it would take a genius to get his wandering, introspective feel into a movie with lots of explosions and the other stuff Marvel movies require.

James McAvoy is fun. Have you seen the miniseries State of Play? He only has a supporting role in a great cast of British actors, but it's my favorite character of his.
foresthouse From: foresthouse Date: June 25th, 2008 03:27 am (UTC) (current file)
Yeah, I just don't see him as a good main character.

I haven't seen it! I thought State of Play was that movie they were filming near my building recently? This must be a different State of Play. Heh.
chrryblssmninja From: chrryblssmninja Date: June 25th, 2008 03:42 am (UTC) (current file)
they are turning the British miniseries into an American movie. Sadly, McAvoy's character seems to be written out, according to the IMDB cast page. He played Bill Nighy's son, and Nighy's part is now played by Helen Mirren, which should be interesting. The slightly quirky father-son team was very fun to watch.
It also had Kelly MacDonald (that cute IRA agent in one episode of Alias, she's been in movies since) as a cool reporter; her part is now being played by Rachel McAdams.

Ah-ha - it sounds good! Well, I'll have to check it out!!
