WAR! YTMND.com goes to battle against Ebaum's world over the latter's petty theft of Lindsay Lohan! Mayhem, DoS attacks and I believe you have my stapler? Ensue! WARNING: sound fx, etc more inside
North Star actually three. Twin suns of Tatooine? Pfft! more inside
Fictitious autibiographies, fictitious authors. An interesting confluence of events--The Smoking Gun starts out looking for a nice mugshot of James Frey (author of the drug addiction memoir A Million Little Pieces) and discovers that real life just doesn't compare to the details in his book.

Tempbot. A short film with breathtaking CG work by a gentleman named Neill Blomkamp, previously known for the excellent Tetra Vaal short (which uses the same 3D robot model). (Both links Quicktime, embedded) Here, the model is used to superb effect, and I found the entire thing heartbreaking. Bonus points: look for ex-Wonder Woman Lynda Carter as the (inexplicably) VERY lonely neighbor.
