Handsome dog

this wouldn't be an issue if his name was "whitie" or "gayie" or "jewie"

damn racist hollyweird.

The dog from The Artist was better.

That's a gorgeous dog. That face is so cute! Kinda makes me wonder if my black lab/german shepherd mixed puppy has a little doberman in him. Might explain why he's so lanky, and is so built for speed. The face on that dog reminds me a lot of my dog's face.

Hmmnnn... Gonna have to get him genotyped soon. I've been meaning to do it since we got him.

Scorsese? DRINK!

/You'd be surprised how often that comes up in casual conversation.

In all honesty, that was a pretty cool dog.

Also, I have to add that any trainer that can get a Jack Russel Terrier to focus on a simple task for more than six seconds deserves a Goddamned trophy.

Hey, thanks for linking to an article about Scorsese's opinion piece instead of Scorsese's actual opinion piece. Thanks, Fark!

Scorsese's op-ed piece. (new window)

Skip shortbus...or shortlist...whatever.

FTAA,NTSWP: (from the actual article, not the stupid write-up)
Must we forget the magnificent physical achievements of such legendary Dobermans as Bingo von Ellendonk (who achieved a perfect score in the storied Schutzhund competition), Borong the Warlock, Baracuda Liborium or Caravelle Drillbit?


I *KNOW* dogs have dumb names (my greyhound can be looked up as MYTHIC WARLOCK on greyhound data) but I had to call him on that and google every one of those. I mean, this is straight out of the "Look Around You" fake-fact playbook.


/And damnit, he was right.

Dammit now I'm out of Grey Goose. Thanks a lot Fark.

I saw one promo for this movie, and it involved a horribly-done CGI clockwork mouse toy. I was so disappointed that they couldn't even do something so simple without CGI that I vowed to never watch the film.

if only you vowed never to write about it, either.

One vow at a time, I'm a simple man.

I could see them having special awards for animal actors, but half the time it is going to be a fairly trivial award. Putting them in for mainstream awards isn't going to be popular - what does it say about most actors if 99% of them do a worse job than a dog/cat/horse/whatever?

That's a shame because the rest of the movie is some of the most stunning CGI I've ever seen.

I'm pretty sure the mouse was done old-school using stop motion. (new window)

So very glad I was not the only one

/Martin Scores Easy

Glad I'm not the only one who saw the SAG awards last night.

/Thought the Bridesmaids girls were pretty funny

Fark that, if that one dude didn't get nominated for the role of Gollum, you don't get to complain about some dog.

Hugo is really one movie worth seeing in 3D. I never thought Scorcese could do a movie without having a body count or having the Mafia involved.

I didn't catch the first 15 minutes or so, and was dissapoint when there was no Fark thread to be found for it. Seriously, did you see what Sofia Vergara was wearing? Truly, I thought her dresser skipped the double-stick tape the way she was bouncing.

Is it detachable?

Yes, it is. Thus, he keeps losing it.
