Lars and the Real Girl.

Odd movie.

I will say, if you're going to be obsessive and hand build something, a fembot is more practical than aluminum airplane models.

The voice needs work though.

Sounds like a lonely Dwellar looking for love in all the wrong places.

I saw a doco about 3 years ago on Real Dolls and the guys who have one or in some cases, many. It was heartbreaking. The doco filmed the owner's daily activities and had them talking about their "relationship" with their Real Doll, so it didn't try to cast any particular slant on them, but they mostly came across as men who had either no self-confidence with women (one English guy felt that women found him repulsive, so the Real Doll was how he got around that) or weird. Another one of the subjects who seemed relatively normal had a girlfriend during the making of the doco, but by the time it went to air, that had come to an end. The reasons weren't discussed, although it did show her "meeting the dolls" and seeming to accept their presence. I haven't seem Lars and the Real Girl, but am guessing that it's something like this, but funnier and without the pathos of real life.

While we're on the topic, "This is not chick lit" has got a whole heap of great short stories including one about a real doll with a completely unexpected ending (and subject matter).

I think you'll find plenty of pathos represented in the film.

And humor. I like the part where the townspeople bought into it for Lars' sake and elected her for something. Not exactly in the clip below, but close.

SPOILER ALERT!

I can never remember the names of those drama masks, so I call them Pathos and Laughos.

Reminded me of this:

The hole in the middle,
I know, is to diddle,
But, for what can the hair on the rim be?"

The hair is like the drip-lip on a paint can.

Someone from the Cellar put this link on Facebook.

http://news.yahoo.com/s/livescience/...ntshumantissue

Quote:
Invetech has delivered what it calls the "world's first production model 3D bio-printer" to Organovo, developers of the proprietary NovoGen bioprinting technology. Organovo will in turn supply the devices to institutions investigating human tissue repair and organ replacement.
Keith Murphy, CEO of Organovo, based in San Diego, said the units represent a breakthrough because they provide for the first time a flexible technology platform for organizations working on many different types of tissue construction and organ replacement.
"Scientists and engineers can use the 3D bio printers to enable placing cells of almost any type into a desired pattern in 3D," Murphy said. "Researchers can place liver cells on a preformed scaffold, support kidney cells with a co-printed scaffold, or form adjacent layers of epithelial and stromal soft tissue that grow into a mature tooth. Ultimately the idea would be for surgeons to have tissue on demand for various uses, and the best way to do that is get a number of bio-printers into the hands of researchers and give them the ability to make three dimensional tissues on demand."
So with Mr. Trung's efforts and this baby, I figure we can have a Summer Glau type Terminator babe up and running in about 50 years.

I'd rather have a Cherry 2000.
