MTV’s Spoilers Has “Watchmen” Footage

22 February, 2009

Part of the scene when Night Owl and the Silk Spectre bust into the prison.  (You will need to watch a short ad first) It’s from the MTV Movies site. I’ve seen some comments around the internet  indicating that people think it looks silly or cheesy.  I can see what people are saying, but I […]

Homemade Memeness.

22 February, 2009

I rarely take part in memes.  I particularly don’t love the ones that involve lots of survey questions.  However, I signed up for this one (on the receiving end) and therefore, must now pay it forward.  That’s how it works. Here’s the deal: I am going to make some kind of gift.  The first five […]

Stop-Motion Love.

18 February, 2009

Darcy posted this video on facebook the other day.  I discovered (and fell in love with ) the song last summer, but had never seen the video.  Turns out it is really, really beautiful.

last splash

16 February, 2009

I don’t know.  I was just needing to hear this today.  This baseline rocked my universe in 1993…

ListCaps: LOST 5×04 “The Little Prince”

11 February, 2009

A few notes: If you haven’t already figured this out, scroll over the photos on my recaps to see captions.  Most of them have one.  Most of them are funny, although I don’t know if anyone will find them as hilarious as I do.  I crack me up. This was a busy, but excellent episode.  […]

This Week in Aggressive Apathy

9 February, 2009

The beat between apathy and rabid, nagging, annoyance.  Do I have distaste for these things?  Not really, I don’t care enough.  Nor do I wish to see, hear, read, or discuss them EVERYWHERE. The top five things this week that I really really –really- do not care to hear any more about: 1.  The Superbowl. […]

New HD “Coraline” Trailer + Neil Gaiman on “Buttons”

23 January, 2009

Watch this trailer. It’s wonderful. And now go to this Borders site for some fun behind-the-scenes stuff, such as Neil Gaiman discussing the fear of buttons. P.S. Reading Coraline at 27 years old brought me right back to the delicious scaryness of being 10 and reading Roald Dahl’s The Witches.  Yes, that good. I cannot […]

“Veronica Mars” might make it to the big screen… or at least a screenplay.

18 January, 2009

Via TVGuide:  Rob Thomas says that he and Kristin Bell are “both in” and the movie is his next project after Cupid… provided someone will pay for it. (Come on, Hollywood, I really want to see this movie happen!) And I know I’m not the only one.  However, I’m not sure it would do any […]

Andrew Bird’s “Noble Beast” available for preview streaming on NPR

17 January, 2009

On Tuesday, Andrew Bird’s new album “Noble Beast” will be released, but I already listened to it a few weeks ago.  (apologies for posting this kinda late, I meant to share… just never got around to it). NPR Exclusive First Listen makes entire (yet-to-be-released) albums available for streaming.  You can listen to the entire thing, […]

New promo + website redesign for “Dollhouse”

17 January, 2009

I went to this website yesterday and it was a one-page, static image of Eliza Dushku, some teeny little videos and some links.  I went back today and it is totally different.  More information, more pages, more videos (bigger this time) yay! It’s lovely.  And the videos are great.  I always love behind-the-scenes clips of […]

A PSA: NPH is hosting SNL tonight!

10 January, 2009

Hulu has the promo reel: Yay!

Five things that almost ruin “Four Weddings and a Funeral”

8 January, 2009

(a movie that I find fairly delightful) 1.  The absurd hats.  Did I miss something?  Were enormous floppy hats really that in style at the end of the 80’s? 2.  Andie Macdowell.  (in general) 3.  The line “Is it still raining?  I hadn’t noticed.”  (and the way she says it.) 4.  The line “Is it […]

LOST characters on Twitter!

5 January, 2009

Via ThinkGeek on Twitter, I just found out that LOST characters (the 5 that got off the island) now have profiles.   I added them to my follow list.  Even more reason to be glued to Twitter now.  ThinkGeek also pointed out something odd… I screenprinted it.  Here is Jack’s home page: and I went to his “following” page […]

Joss Whedon Reviews “Dr. Horrible” for Amazon

17 December, 2008

Can someone please get me a playdate with Joss Whedon for Christmas?   (and I mean that in a totally innocent way, he is the kind of guy I want to go bowling with.  For realz.  I just want him to be my new BFF.  Is that too much to ask?) Joss Whedon reviewed the dvd […]

the list of now’s year in music + “best music of 2008” lists round-up

14 December, 2008

This year I didn’t really follow new releases or review any albums. I have been working on many other projects and so when I reflect on a list for this past year of my “favorites”, it would be comprised of songs that I came across this year – many not from this year’s record releases, […]

a LOST season 5 news brief!

13 December, 2008

Just wanted to share.  I just read that season five of LOST is going to air uninterrupted (without one of those pesky month-long breaks that happened last year because of the writer’s strike).  You can read more here. Unfortunately, a SAG strike now appears to be looming.  So I have my fingers crossed that it […]

Artist Support Plug!

6 December, 2008

Kally has a poll up on her blog to help her decide on a subject for her next project (a rock icon portrait).  Her portraits are some of my favorite-favorites and if I could afford what they are worth, I’d comission one myself. Go vote right now!   (for Johnny Cash, please) (ok, ok… or vote […]
