"Never use a metaphor, simile or other figure of speech which you are used to seeing in print. Never use a long word where a short word will do. If it is possible to cut a word out, always cut it out. Never use the passive where you can use the active."

- George Orwell
Checked In: Noir on Foursquare

Lars reviews a lot of crime fiction here, so when I saw this short video, I decided to share it. It's short film noir based in Internet culture.

Interesting, but I'm not sure how she expects to get away with this one. Body to move, obvious homicide, etc.

Maybe she can dump it in the river, but it's the end of the story, so she doesn't have to get away with it.

Coffee is a caffeinated shotgun.

Nicely outlandish metaphor and that ending. Brutal.
