Michel Gondry, one of the most visually interesting directors working today, has opened his new website to the public, and as expected, it's quite fun. It's not particularly innovative, but it has just the right amount of childlike sensibilities to charm users.

The real coup is in the exclusive goodies that the director offers via his site. Of course you can order his new DVD Michel Gondry 2: More Videos (Before and After DVD 1), the follow-up to his landmark Director's Series cut released in 2003. You can also purchase his functional memoir You’ll Like This Film Because You’re In It, which examines his quest to democratize filmmaking by making it readily accessible to anyone and anything.

Michel's Notes From The Throne Toilet Paper is one of the cheekier items offered, featuring his whimsical ideas and sketches printed on toilet paper. After watching David Cross prance around in a giant poop costume in one of Michel's earlier shorts, it's clear that Mr. Gondry has an obsession with everything fecal.

Finally, if you want Michel to draw your picture and sign it when he's done, just e-mail him your photo with a twenty dollar bill and you will be immortalized by the man who made ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND. Check out his crap-tastic website here!

Extra Tidbit: With his upcoming GREEN HORNET starring Seth Rogen, I'm willing to bet that Gondry is on his way to becomeing one of the biggest directors in Hollywood.
