As very few of you are probably aware, I have been away for a while. Now that I have returned from winter vacation I can start posting again, and I will start with a few weird things I have found around the internet over the past few months.
First, we have an ad that I noticed right here on Weird Universe:
I know Microsoft is evil, but getting their rival to link to their competing service? That's just terrible.
Another Google ad, this one somewhat more dubious:
For those of you who don't know, Brandon Tartikoff was an NBC executive in the 1980s.
Next, we have a few bizarre suggestions from Netflix (if any are too small to read, simply right click and open the image in a new page):
I give up, what do The Powerpuff Girls
and Star Trek: The Motion Picture
have in common?
Note the related genres.
I don't know what's stranger, the related movies or the fact that this is one of the results for the search "Breakfast at Tiffany's" (Don't believe me? See for yourself
And finally, an announcement. Over winter break I came into possession of a machine that was almost literally built to spread weirdness. I am of course referring to a 16mm movie projector. I only have a few mildly weird films at the moment, such as a 1940s John Deere farm safety film and a Bell Telephone Company film that reminds businesspeople to dial their own calls and not bother the switchboard operator, but over the next few months I should be able to find more weird and wonderful films to share with the world. As soon as I figure out a good way to transfer 16mm films to my computer I will start uploading some of the weirder films in my small collection.
For anyone who may be interested, here is a picture of the projector (I'm still waiting for the films to arrive, I got them during winter break in Houston and it is taking a while to have them shipped to Chicago):
