hey kids! oh it’s saturday and i’m getting my relax on – the weekdays drive me a bit batty so i love to slow down and take a breather on these two weekend days! although next week i have off thursday AND friday from work (thanksgiving came so fast this year) so i’m looking forward to a three day work week!



anyways tonight is another episode of my dear greg the bunny and this time the puppets tackle director lars von trier‘s bare minimum film dogville! now i love mr. von trier’s previous films including breaking the waves and dancer in the dark but i’ll admit i had a bit of trouble sitting through ‘dogville’ – it’s a very interesting concept (no sets – just lots of chalk) but greg and his sock pals do a killer parody of the film! so make sure to tune in tonight to IFC – greg plays before and after ‘dogville’ – so you can catch the parody plus the real thing – pretty convenient if i do say so myself! next week greg & company tackle director david lynch – i’ll post about that next week! popbytes over & out for now…xxoo!

Grace agrees to the terms and ends up meeting the locals, including the town doctor (Philip Baker Hall), shopkeeper (Lauren Bacall), and apple farmer (Stellan Skarsgård). Eventually, Grace’s standing in the town takes a downward shift as the search for her intensifies…
