Just in case you haven't seen the FckH8 video with the princesses yet...

... enjoy "F-Bombs for Feminism: Potty-Mouthed Princesses Use Bad Word for a Good Cause."

The video speaks for itself in very clear language.

I hate to get my hopes up, but is it possible that Paul Thomas Anderson may actually succeed in bringing a Thomas Pynchon novel to the screen?
Here's the trailer released today:



And here's an interesting discussion on WNYC's Soundcheck in which John Schaefer and Rolling Stone's Rob Sheffield talk about the music in the novel:
