  2. >Oh, yeah, there is a lot of this on YouTube, and some of it is well done, as this one is. When I saw the last movie, there was quite a bit of giggling among the mostly teen and early 20s audience in scenes that were clearly fodder for future YouTube m/m slash.

    By the way, have I ever mentioned that “I am so going to hell” is my favorite label on the internet? It’s up there with the quite remarkable “sit down, man, you’re a bloody tragedy” (on blogger).
