Vappy Halentine’s Day

This Year, Give the Gift of Metal Roses

Garrison Dean over at io9 so totally made my day with this Valentine’s Day card, which was one in a series of science fiction-themed designs:

There’s a HAL card and a Planet of the Apes card, too. Good stuff.

Notice the image of a cat on the heart that the second, T-Rexish set of arms is holding—nice nod to the whole cat-food-as-crack motif!

District 9 is up for four Academy Awards next month: Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Film Editing and Best Visual Effects. I’d like to see it take all four of those, including Best Picture, but it’s up against critics’ darling Precious. Oh, and also that other movie about aliens—Smurfy aliens. What was that inferior 2009 science fiction movie called? Avolta-something? Viatar-blah-blah-blah? Surrogates? Dances with Wolves? The Hype Machine? Oh, who cares. I’ll never see it.

My friends say I should just throw it away. That it’s just a piece of rubbish. That it couldn’t possibly come from him. But I know it’s true.
