I've been escaping by searching Youtube for recut movie trailers. Like the one that puts clips from "The Shining" over a Peter Gabriel song and makes it look like a feel-good movie about one man's self-discovery. Or the one that makes Cecil B. DeMille's The Ten Commandments look like a high school comedy circa 1998. I found a hilarious one yesterday called "David Lynch's A Goofy Movie" that caused me to nearly cramp my abdominals from laughter.
