WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON HERE OMG
FUN STORY so once I was at Haus Maus and I found this rainbow-colored slinky, and Maus’ cat (who goes by many names these days) was lying on the floor, so I said “Hey cat wanna see a magic trick” and started sending compression waves along the slinky in front of him. Since this cat is all about acrobatic ultraviolence (chasing nerf darts is a big thrill for him), I figured he would try to catch the compression or something. Instead, he began licking his nose, very rapidly. Stop the slinky, the cat stopped. Start the wave, and there goes the tongue.
We learned later that a cat licking its nose very rapidly is part of an anti-seizure reflex, so apparently there is something about the compression wave (the color? the sound? the lines?) that triggered seizure defense lines.
This story wasn’t fun at all, was it? This story was “the day I tricked a cat into thinking he was having a seizure, several times.”
actually that’s fucking hilarious

[On how she got her role on ‘Hugo’] “Basically, I got a call from my agency and they were like “Look, Martin Scorsese is making a movie,” […] they said “We’re only casting local brits because we want the real accent, we want the whole thing,” and I was like “Okay, well. You know, I’ll do a tape and I’ll audition for it.” So I wore a little wig, and I did everything in a british accent, and he loved it. So he flew me and Asa Butterfield— the kid who played Hugo— to New York to do an audition for him, in front of him. So I flew out there, keeping up the act that I was british […] And then as I was leaving — luckily, he was amused — I said in my regular voice, “Bye Marty!” and he was like, “Wait. What? Where’d your accent go?” And I was like…”
