Vanity Fair: We Spent 24 Hours Searching for the Elusive “Butthole Cut” of Cats

Seth Rogen and Rian Johnson are among the filmmakers demanding to see the NSFW version of 2019’s most bizarre movie. But does it really exist?

You can blame—or thank—Seth Rogen.

On Tuesday, the actor and writer partook in the ancient theatrical tradition that is trying to understand the baffling, inscrutable movie-musical Cats (recently available on digital). Rogen wrote a long Twitter thread about the experience, marveling at the impossibly small cat shoes worn by several characters and wondering what the hell a “Jellicle” is, anyway. (For the record, that made-up word is a play on how posh Brits pronounce “dear little” cats).

In the process, Rogen also tweet-quoted a post from screenwriter Jack Waz, who claimed to know a visual effects artist who had been tapped to work on Cats back in November.

Sorry I should have been clearer and my choice of words could have been better.  The family in the article haven't just gone and raided the supermarket, they've built up their stockpile over 15 years.  If that gives them comfort and assurance then I won't hold that against them.

 

 

Indeed. That is completely different. They have done exactly what the official advice recommends, and they have done it in spades. Good on them. I have nothing against survivalists.

This must be inserted into the article on Stuff just in case nobody mastered basic multiplication at school:

 

 

 

"The prototype uses a newly developed anode that can potentially offer a lifespan of more than 1000 full charges, meaning a battery with an 800km range should last around 800,000km"

While this thread is fun New Zealand is being very well served by it's media. In places like the UK and the US the idiot Karens are encouraging people to breach lockdowns and saying closing pubs is an over reaction.

 

The New Zealand media is being very responsible on the whole.

Yes, sorry, but I am an old person. And you don't have to get personal about it.
