Lots of very cool stuff. This is one exert;

 

Palmer Explosion Audio Outtake


The following dialogue is the text from an audio outtake clip recorded by a production sound crew who worked on The Thing.  It is about a minute long and records the comments between Kurt Russell and the effects crew that set up the Palmer-Thing explosion.  It occurs after a particularly large blast goes off (when Mac tosses the TNT at the Palmer-Thing).  It turned out to be much stronger and closer to Kurt and the crew than anyone had anticipated.  If you watch that scene closely, you'll see Kurt almost gets knocked off his feet.  This clip is quite hilarious, but it has a lot of coarse language.  Unfortunately, we cannot post the audio clip on the site due to a strict copyright contract with Universal. 
Here is the text of the audio clip:
[An extremely loud BOOM!]

[The sound of many fire extinguishers and background people screaming and laughing.]

Kurt Russell: "Are you kidding me!?  Are you fucking with me!?  You're kidding me!"

Crewperson: "Are you alright!?"

Kurt: "Holy shit!  Yeah!"

Crewperson: "Are you alright!?"

Kurt: "You fucking asshole!  You gotta be kidding me!" (laughs)

Crewperson #2: "Are you alright!?"

Kurt: "Whoa!" (laughs)

Crewperson #2: "I didn’t expect anything like that!"

Kurt: "Holy fuck!  That shit blew by me sooooo fast man!  Boom!" (laughs)

Crewperson #3: "Holy shit!  A piece landed on my head!"

Crewperson: "Hey!  How was it over there for you?"

Kurt: "Cowafuckingbunga!" (laughs)

Crewperson #3: "Ha Ha!  Did you see that fucking piece burning on my head!?"

The next three silhouettes for www.charactr.co.uk are done. this time the theme is 'Tattooed Spider Woman':

This is what I wrote to go with the brief;
  • Again, look at the words, research possible meanings and directions that this could go. The first thing you think of will not be your best idea, play with it for a while.
  • Your design could be a scheming femme fatale of the noir film genre; lots of shadows and smouldering looks, or a genetics-gone-pear-shaped, crossbred nightmare, or an intelligent, elegantly evolved entity.
  • And don’t forget the tattoos; spider themed or otherwise. What do the tattoos say about the character?
  • Take a look at the images below. They should only mark the beginning of your research.
  • Do NOT use the comic character Spider Woman, which is copyrighted, obviously.


These are my silhouettes;
