Another Hint At Netflix's Inevitable Australian Launch

Netflix is coming to Australia! Probably. Maybe. I don’t know, actually, and I’m not going to pretend that I do.

Making Noises And Sounds Like A Foley Artist Looks Like A Lot Of Fun

None of the mics are actually plugged in and this video is an ad for COS by Lernert & Sander, but it sure makes the job of a foley artist look like a lot of fun.
