My favorite guilty pleasure during this time of the Cannes Film Festival is the IFC Cannes Cam.
It's the coolest thing in the world. You can sit at home and enjoy this 24/7 little 4.5" x 3" window onto the red carpet. You can see watch people milling about, see the fashions, hear the wind, and even watch their formal gala pre-shows with Matt Singer and various guest hosts. I just caught the tail end of Austin's own Tim League doing a bang up job for Kung Fu Panda.
Check out the live feed here. It's addictive and lots of fun!
