My cousin's visiting with his Wii and it's distracting me from the internet. A few things I need to post about:

[ profile] nentari, thank you SO MUCH for the book & the card! It's awesome, I can't wait to read it.

There's still one favourite character that nobody's guessed, from 'The Middleman', so I'm not posting the rest of the answers yet.

Regarding the above clip - how did I not know about phenomenon? Fabulosity at its best. I would like to point out that I like Single Ladies but pretty much despise If I Were a Boy, which is sexist, nar

I've been cleaning. I have a lot of crap. I took most of my posters down because my room still looked like a teenage girl's room and I'm trying to move into an adult living space...with FRAMED posters! I could do with more photo frames that go on the walls, too.

Question for people who design their space brilliantly a la [ profile] indilime: how does one put up a huge poster properly? Like, do you mount it, or frame it, or what?

I saw the 'Milk' trailer tonight at the movies. I want to see that movie yesterday.

There's this ad on Facebook that's like 'meet singles in your area!' with a picture of a random guy. I'm pretty sure that I've seen both James Franco and Van Hansis in there. Which, a) not in my area at all and b) what are they trying to tell me?!

Okay, link fans, here's your fix.

New HBP images of Weasley's Wizard Wheezes and Slughorn (the WWW picture is the first thing I've liked about HBP in a long time.)

Cool new 'Lost' promo.

'Dr. Horrible' on AFI's 'Moments of Significance' list and a viral web videos of 2008 list which completely dismisses what it really is, basically.

'Serenity' merch: someone's a Jayne fan.

Gorgeous Katharine Hepburn picspam, with quotes.

This'll be one of my last posts before Christmas, because I'm leaving for Sydney pretty much straight after work tomorrow and my internet access is limited when I'm away. I'll try to do a Christmas post, though!

Dollhouse sneak peek! It's only a sort of extended scene from some bits we've seen before, but I like it.

Harris Eager For Horrible 2, Dollhouse. Fans eager for more Neil Patrick Harris. Top Ten: Most anticipated of early 2009. Dollhouse should be #1.

Kristin Chenoweth already has a job lined up for after 'Pushing Daisies', like someone as awesome as her could be unemployed for long. Knowing that 'Pushing Daisies' is ending prematurely still makes my heart hurt.

New Lost sneak peek!

Private Practice preview clip that - get this - actually features Chris Lowell. Like's he's a regular cast member or something. OH WAIT.

New 'Wolverine' trailer with...wait...yes, I see Dom! He's in the group shot! HIS ROLE DOES EXIST! On a side note, both Liev Schrieber and Taylor Kitsch look kinda awesome in this.

Joss blogs about the Doc Horrible DVD. I kind of love that it will make no sense to anyone who a) hasn't seen Dr. Horrible already and b) is not used to Jossisms.

Two new brief but excellent promos.

Dr. Horrible makes the cover of Time Magazine! No, it does. Squint. It's on the left, under the heading 'Top 10 TV Series'.

Mark Sheppard talks Tanaka - which is the name of his role on Dollhouse. Iiiinteresting.

The LA Times discusses ways of turning 'Beedle the Bard' into a movie. Uh, no thanks.

Dan, Rupert and Tom Felton recorded some stuff for the ride, which I am more than likely going to go on, in spite of the fact that I am wary.

Kenneth Branagh is directing Thor.

Hi-res Dom picspam.

Rolling Stone did an awesome RPattz interview. Also, he proposed to KStew, is too manly for modelling, bites people and has a raw crotch. Just to round it off, Twilight: The Puppet Saga.

Paley Center takes a look at 'Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog' and announces their own sing-along event. The pictures accompanying that first article are amazing.

Eliza talks 'Dollhouse', 'Nobel Son'. I didn't know Dollhouse's premiere date was Friday the 13th! That's...kinda awesome.

New 'Dollhouse' picture and quote from Joss.

I spent a while today reading the comment thread at Whedonesque about Prop 8: The Musical. I am so stealing some of the reasoning in those threads for future reference.

NPH and Nathan Fillion "maintain their commitment to comedy through web-based musical ventures." I totally stole that quote from Whedonesque, and I'm not sorry.

Five things in Hollywood that Christian Kane would steal.

Got this awesome link from [ profile] truffle_shuffle: 8 Things Modern Vampires Could Learn From ’The Lost Boys’. I still love My Chemical Romance and their tendency to walk abound all 'wah wah wah cry cry cry'.

Hilarious fan-made movie poster anagrams.

8 Best Picture Oscar favourites this year. I want to see nearly all of them.

Why are there no openly gay leading men in Hollywood? Because nobody appreciates Neil Patrick Harris! This line, though:
This leads to a dynamic in which heterosexual actors such as Penn or Tom Hanks (in "Philadelphia") have no problems being believed as gay men—or murderers or mentally challenged characters—yet there's much doubt that an openly gay actor could be convincing carrying a romance with the opposite sex.
Yes. Good comparison, there. I'm sure that's really helping.

List of upcoming sci-fi sequels/remakes. I would really enjoy a Logan's Run remake, I think.

Joss speaks!

*dies laughing* Twilight fan loses her shit when faced with RPattz, Taylor Lautner, and the Vampire Volvo of Justice. Also, they are now asking Daniel Radcliffe about Twilight, which I think is kinda nuts. He's Harry freakin' Potter! With an ugly beard...

Happy birthday, Melissa Tancheroen!

Pretty much all my e-mail notifications from the last week-ish just hit my ibnox at once. Nice one, LiveJournal.

Apparently, the 'Dark Knight' score is ineligible to win an Oscar because too many people worked on it. This is like how the Coen brothers always put just one name as director. It's ridiculous. Filmmaking is collaborative!

There's a bunch of ADORABLE behind-the-scenes Battlestar Galactica shots on Trucco's webpage that warrant a visit.

Brilliant RPattz quote as quoted here by [ profile] grrliz:
I had a stalker while filming a movie in Spain last year. She stood outside of my apartment every day for weeks — all day, every day. I was so bored and lonely that I went out and had dinner with her. I just complained about everything in my life and she never came back. People get bored of me in, like, two minutes.

LMAO. I can't understand how ANYONE can get bored with him. He's hilarious! Also, this, and two clips from 'Little Ashes'. THE FIRST ONE!

15 questions with Neil Patrick Harris.

There's some cute Buffy icons here. On the topic of icons, my most favourite icon maker is taking requests, so you should go put one in before it's too late. Once in a lifetime opportunity, people! Well...once in not terribly often, anyway.

Happy birthday [ profile] dekolette! My LiveJournal world would be a much sadder place without you.

So today, the highligh of my day was going to the fete at the school where I work at the after-school program. It was lots of fun, which was cut short because I had to go pick my sister up from work.

Ahh! No! Put it back the way it was! Nobody's looking at my userinfo to see how many comments I've made or how many tags I have, including me. Eurgh.

Okay, I had this post made up, but it can basically be summed up by the fact that Bryan Fuller might return to 'Heroes' because 'Pushing Daisies' might be cancelled, 'The Middleman' might be cancelled, 'Dollhouse' has been dumped on the death time slot of Friday nights at 9 pm, and Nathan Fillion's new show 'Castle' has had its order of episodes reduced. So, everything sucks.

In the last two days I've seen three chick flicks. Well, not so much chick flicks as movies about and for women...and at least one full-blown chick flick.

My favourite icon maker, [ profile] mouthfullofdust, made a completely gorgeous 'Lazarus Rising' picspam. This show is SO PRETTY.

Something else that is awesome: Dress Like Javi Day! Oh Middleman, please be renewed.

Video of Dom on the Criss Angel red carpet. Christina Hendricks, too. I love it when he starts in on the religiousness of the States. Is it wrong that that totally does it for me? Although, Halloween, not about worshipping the devil.

Ugh, ugh, ugh: ABC fires Brooke Smith, more likely than not out of fear of the lesbian relationship. UGH. Assholes.

Seth Green Spills All About His Directorial Debut, "The Freshmen". I AM EXCITED. Caps-lock level excited! I forgot he was going to be on Heroes, actually. I should catch up instead of downloading the episodes, skimming through them, and then ignoring them. Oh, and how ironic is it that Seth tests badly when Oz never went to school and tested ridiculously well? Just an observation. Why don't I have an Oz icon?

And more Jossverse actor news: Christian Kane talks 'Leverage' and, in an upcoming interview, will discuss his music career and - what? - lingerie line.

Finally, the man himself: Joss interview, Joss and family (and Felicia!) at a Dr. Horrible Halloween screening. I can pretty much count Nathan Fillion as a Whedon now, right? I understood almost nothing in that video, except something about a ninja in-joke.

I am most likely an enormous geek for linking this, but Stephen Fry blogs about language.

Today, instead of going out to the movies (because all of my slacker friends refused to go with me), I watched two fandom-related movies at home on my computer. I am also now officially caught up on Chuck.

Two bromance articles, appropriate considering the movie I saw yesterday: Television's hottest 'bromances' and 30 Burning Sci-Fi Bromances. One thing
Nightclub singer Willie Scott may have a handle on the good doc’s gonads, but it’s the plucky Shortie who captures his heart by uttering such nuggets of wisdom as “Hey, Dr. Jones, no time for love. We’ve got company”—albeit in an almost-parodic Chinese accent.
Uh, Vietnamese, actually. Because Ke is Vietnamese. And that was just how he talked. Also, the Lost entry is inaccurate.

While reading that, I found this: Why Pushing Daisies Is The Best TV Show You're Not Watching. Although, I think the sweetness is part of its appeal.

There's a few animations from that Jensen scene over at Supernatural TV. Also, new season 4 promo pics, and Kripke & co apparently don't think Dean's a dick. Good to know.

It's almost enough to make me excited about comic books: Seth Green wants to direct 'Freshmen' adaptation (I have a signed copy of the first one) and ALFONSO FUCKING CUARON has first right of refusal on 'Umbrella Academy'. I COULD DIE.

I don't get it, why did people not like Josh Groban's bit at the Emmys? I thought it was cute. Much better time-wasting than the awful hosts.

If there are any Spanish Dom fans on my flist, his new film 'I Sell The Dead' will be screened at a festival in Catalonia.

Fox8 now has the Australian rights to Dollhouse instead of Ten, which means it will not be free-to-air. This SUCKS. ENORMOUSLY. Not just for me, but for the show, because cable is not very popular here and the show will never get much momentum over here if it's not free-to-air. SUCKS. NOT HAPPY.

2. WTF, why is Kid Rock's new song Werewolves of London but crap? I keep getting excited when I hear it on the radio and then feeling let down when Kid Rock start...doing what he does. I wouldn't call it singing.
3. My new car CD has both 'The Doctor and I' and 'The Wizard and I' on it.
4. Pat Benatar is FIERCE.

The 26 Most Disturbing Kid Movies Ever. Uh, try most awesome. Well, some of them, anyway. Willy Wonka is one of my all-time favourites, as is E.T., and I declare both Pan's Labyrinth and Temple of Doom null and void for NOT BEING KIDS' FILMS.

George Takei's wedding procession.

Mother steals daughter's identity and poses as high schooler to be a cheerleader. Wow. Clearly a mother who'd seen "The Witch" too many times. That'd be the Buffy episode, kids.

Saxon couple buried in each other's arms discovered to both be male. It's sad that they originally assumed them to be man & wife, but once they discovered both bodies were male the archeologists instantly uncoupled them in their minds. It shows how deep-seated homophobia is - and if you asked them, I bet all the archeologists would claim not to be homophobic.

Apparently in this Supernaturalthe Impala gets an unfortunate upgrade. Speculation is a CD player, but I reckon that for TV Guide to call it unfortunate I reckon it's going to be much worse.
