Happy Mother’s Day!

Mr. T, you are so wise.


Make it so

I like themes.  Today is Star Trek day for me, apparently.  The Q & Data pic reminded me of this lovely clip from Extras with Patrick Stewart.  Engage!


Twitter Etiquette Lessons

April 11, 2010

Aimee Mann and Ice T just had a Twitter duel. Apparently she insulted his acting and he didn’t like that so much…

I love that this is news.

(It’s totally entertaining enough for weekend posting.)


The best news ever

April 10, 2010

Look!  Look!!  Newsies on Broadway! I bet the new Jack will even be able to sing.

And you thought the subject line was an exaggeration.

I don’t post on weekends for exaggerations.

I’ve never seen a Nicholas Sparks movie

April 7, 2010

Neither have I ever read one of his books. I don’t intend to ever do either. Cracked.com just gave me a tangible reason for this.

I can’t believe this guy thinks he’s better than Shakespeare and Austen…


Okay, I know I said stereotypes were fun, but really?

April 5, 2010

So there’s going to be an Asian Jersey Shore?

I feel like I should be offended, especially since they’re also doing a Russian one.  And it’s really not long until they get through every stereotype in the most offensive way possible.

On the other hand, I have two thoughts

1: It’s not all Asians “If you are not Asian but are obsessed with Asian culture or people in some way, email us and please explain.”  – This means at least one of our editors is TOTALLY eligible, and its about time that Kaks took it to the small screen.

2: Who am I to judge?  This is obviously going to be awesome.

The James Franco Show

April 1, 2010

I have an abiding love for James Franco that I think started when I was about 15 and he played James Dean in that TV movie. Bam. I’m sold. And then, shortly thereafter, I discovered he’s actually from my town and made out with my friend’s sister in high school and his younger brother is friends with some girls I knew in high school, and I knew it would be a long-term thing. When it turned out he’s actually intelligent and cool and multi-talented (actors are hot, but writers and English majors up the ante) and makes ridiculous videos making fun of himself, I decided we were meant to be.

But now, I’m not so sure. You see, he’s publishing a book of short stories, named after our lovely little California town, and Esquire has been so magnanimous as to publish one so we can get a taste of what’s to come. Gawker reviewed for us, and, well, let’s just say that this story involves a “dragon bong.” Whatever, that’s fine, but I’m more worried about his taking Palo Alto as his own now; as a writer friend of mine worries, can there really be two famous writers (or general writing/movie major players, in this case) from one town?

Just sayin’, James Franco should watch whose toes he steps on…
