Check out the New York craigslist ad here:

"Anyone who thought that movie casting was a fine art should check out this entry on the New York version of classifieds site Craigslist. It's a request for extras to appear in The Baster, a Jennifer Aniston/Jason Bateman romcom about a woman who has a child with a sperm donor only to discover seven years later that the helpful chap was actually – gulp – her best friend. The film, due out next year, co-stars Jeff Goldblum (the quirky doc, perhaps?) and is based on a story by Jeffrey Eugenides, author of The Virgin Suicides and hermaphrodite novel Middlesex.

Anyway, Grant Wilfley Casting, the resourceful agency behind the post, aren't just looking for people to pad out a crowd scene. Don't go getting your hopes up; not just anyone can apply for these roles. What they're looking for are:

• A heavy-set woman who is able to ride a bike, comfortable in provocative wardrobe, and comfortable having profanities shouted at her.
• A woman with a round face, small eyes and upturned nose who is comfortable having profanities shouted out at her in a comedic scene.
• A rail-thin teen boy with bad skin, bad acne.

Specific, eh? Not just bad acne, but bad skin on top of it. And does the inclusion of the "comedic scene" clause in the second request suggest that the insults hurled at the first woman form part of a really heartbreaking bicycle moment?

Hopefuls are invited to send a recent photo and contact details to an email address. Are you tempted? Why not send in your snaps to us first at – we can tell you if you fit the bill. And who does this tell you more about: the Grant Wilfley Casting agency, or the people who might be likely to browse the small ads on Craigslist?"


Forget Jennifer Anniston. Jeff GOLDBLUM!!! I don't match these descriptions, but I half wish I did. Wouldn't it be cool if one of these parts got to share screen time with Jeff?

Soliciting Your Critique On SC

I am trying to really fix up SC and make it look as good as possible. I recently applied at for hosting (they give you a free domain name and I'm hoping to get "" or something along those lines) but I was turned down because, "Your site design, although coming along well, is not of a high enough quality as of yet. You are more than welcome to re-apply at a later date once you have acquired more web/graphic design experience."

This was pretty disappointing at first, considering I actually work as a graphic designer and have been doing it since I was eleven, but it's true SC doesn't look as good as it should and I've decided to take it as a challenge.

I'm pretty attached the basic layout and don't want to change it too much, but let me know what your ideas are.

Are there any little (or big) things about the site that bug you?

Is the head banner too big?

Is the whole site too wide? (I originally made it wide thinking I would have a "banners" page for people to use on forums but I still haven't gotten around to it. Still, if it is too wide, I cold always put those in the gallery or just make them pop up in larger windows for the full size.

What about the navigation bar? Do you think the text there should be smaller?

What about the main page? Do you think that it looks to cluttered?

Lay it on me. :) While I like the site pretty well for the most part how it is (and really like seeing the big header banners of Jeff when I'm on it (Ha ha) I would be ready to do a completely new design if that's the best way to go.

I appreciate ALL your thoughts. :D

Jeff's Aura Photo

Though I added this to the Random Facts page, I thought it deserved its own blog post.

A few weeks ago I discovered an interesting photo of Jeff - an aura photo. It was taken by Stephany Hurkos, wife of the famous psychic, Peter Hurkos.

This is how she read his aura from the photo,
"He is content, honest and sincere, music is his life... a non conformist and strong willed... a bit of a manipulate - he is a good friend to people... a chameleon, very bright..."

Good "Vibes"

I just watched "Vibes" with Jeff Goldblum (of course) and Cindi Lauper. It was a fun film!

I will probably write a review up of it over the next few days and will also try to post some screencaps. :)

Also, the site's back up! :D YAY.

Mr. Frost IS on DVD...

So Mr. Frost IS available on DVD, BUT it is under the title, "The Deadly Mr. Frost."

Mr. Frost Rare Advert

This rare advertisement (approximately 8x12 inches) is available on Ebay. Check out the listing here:

Just thought I'd share the rare pic with all you fellow fans.

Note about the main site: Looks like I am once again having hosting trouble. None of the site is loading properly. I have contacted the host but have yet to get a response. Out of my 6 websites, SC is the only one that has ever had so many hosting problems. I wonder if the site name is jinx...

Inspired By Mr. Frost

The following poem was written after I watched Mr. Frost for the first time last night. What a spectacular film! I can not understand why it is so hard to find and not well known. I thought it was completely enthralling and thought provoking and will write a review up of it soon!

In the mean time, here is my poem...

The Possession

The proper words elude me. It was lust
But more than lust - a nightmare and a dream.
The proof of my religion turned to dust
Yet haunted me until I moved to scream
But I was silenced by his forceful hand
Across my lips. I stirred beneath his grip.
My back against his chest, he left his brand
Upon my neck while clawing at my hip.
He twisted me to look into his eyes.
His pupils like a cat's, he studied me.
He might have uttered sixty thousand lies.
I'd not have heard or cared, he'd conquered me.
A moth into the flame - into the fire.
I hated him yet he was my desire.

I hated him yet he was my desire -
His kinky hair as bold and dark as death,
The falcon's nose, a riled badger's ire,
His pacing and his restless wolf-like breath
That echoed in his chambers every night.
A serpent's tongue, a stallion's awing skin.
Too much to still be sure of what was right.
Enough to make me rationalize sin.
Again my words fall short. No similie
Nor adjectives, or nouns, or metaphor
Could ever rival such an entity,
Could ever hold the esscence I adore
That is for all six senses like a feast
Despite how he corrupts. I love the beast.

Despite how he corrupts, I love the beast.
I find myself unable to resist
And too ashamed or scared to seek a priest.
Perhaps, deep down, I want it to persist
And yet I know my actions weren't my own
To an extent! I could have fought him more
Or could I? I was confident alone.
Too confident. Too weak to close that door...
I danced with Chaos, trapped, but happily;
His violent passion left me so fufilled
And yet so hollow. Love is misery...
And thus it was that fateful bullet killed
The body he possessed. It turned to dust
But now he lives in me and I am lust
