Before watching the full length, make sure you give its 30-minute version a view first. Check out young Sofia Coppola’s cameo in it, too.

But as they say, nothing compares to oldies but goodies. NetworkAwesome, founded by Jason Forrest and Greg Sadetsky, is a super cool website which takes us to a telly-fic [...]
Audrey Hepburn has a meownderful cat on Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Emily the Strange has three purrfectly black companions. Girls adore cats and it should be imperative that cats adore girls, too! Speaking of cats, take a look at Midori Yamada. She uses watercolor, pen, coffee, and acrylic to make lovely art pieces of felines and females.
