A couple of highlights from Arnold Schwarzenegger's commentary on the Total Recall DVD.A couple of highlights from Arnold Schwarzenegger's commentary on the Total Recall DVD.

Normally I'm usually quite opposed to post anything from a Gawker-related media site (in this case the main Gawker.com site of all things) but this one was just too good to pass up. Watch the embedded video and you'll hear Arnold quip about some interesting points during the movie-making process that was Total Recall. Here is a great example: 'this scene is unbelievable because my frustration that this taxi cab does not understand where I want to go.'

Eight websites you need to stop building according to The Oatmeal.Eight websites you need to stop building according to The Oatmeal.

After carefully perusing this comic (and laughing a little bit too loud for office-level volumes) I was a little discomforted by the fact that the Pork'd mock design looks ridiculously similar to the current version of GLM.

Minister: lt's not particularly silly, is it? I mean, the right leg isn't silly at all and the left leg merely does a forward aerial half turn every alternate step. Mr Pudey: Yes, but I think that with Government backing I could make it very silly.

Seriously, you'd think that most of these headlines would have come right out of The Onion - but no, sadly these are all real headlines. My personal favorite: 'Report on reports sees too many reports'. That's some good reporting.
