See you on the flipside.

I'm going on hiatus. Why? Because I'm heading out to gorgeous and tons-of-fun California tomorrow morning for Halloween / Election Day shenanigans with my most favorite people in the world. Until I return, have some James Franco.

New Half-Blood Prince international trailer

It sucks that this isn't coming out until next summer. It also sucks that they felt the need to change so much. But other than that, AWESOME. I totally had goosebumps.

Baby news!

Amy Poehler and Will Arnett are now the proud parents of a baby boy. This means no more SNL for Amy, which means no more Amy on SNL for us, which is really sad. But great for them! Can't wait to find out what they named him.

Update: They named him Archie. Archie Arnett.

For Michelle

Barack Obama dressed as a pirate for Halloween when he was a kid. Our next president has ALWAYS been awesome!

Vot e NO on Propositon 8 in California

It's so important.

Not exactly funny, but still pretty great

Hottest man ever, and funny too!

An outtake from tonight's Supernatural:

Jensen Ackles, you are amazing.

Awesome Chuck casting news!

My favorite Hobbit and Lostie Dominic Monaghan will be guest starring on Chuck this season. Any time Dom gets work, I'm happy. He's a sweetheart and very talented.

Aww, congrats!

One of my favorite celebrity couples, Alyson Hannigan and Alexis Denisof are expecting their first baby.

So maybe there was truth in the theory that Lily was pregnant a year from now when she didn't drink the $2500 scotch in last week's HIMYM episode.

Alright, Wahlberg. You're cool again.

It turns out Mark Wahlberg does have a sense of humor about himself.

Fine. I'll go see Star Trek.

Chris Pine might be one of the most beautiful men I've ever seen. And it's ridiculous how much Zachary Quinto looks like Leonard Nimoy. It's eerie. All of this plus Simon Pegg? I didn't stand a chance of resisting.

Barack and roll.

Barack Obama is ridiculously awesome. I couldn't support a candidate more. This speech is amazing.

Battlestar Galactica will be returning on January 16, 2009. Mark your calendars. It's 91 days, in case you're wondering.

Rock the Swing States

The Beastie Boys will be embarking on their Swing State Tour in support of Barack Obama. They'll be joined by Sheryl Crow, Tenacious D, Jack Johnson, Ben Harper and others along the way. I don't live in a swing state, so I'll be missing out. The Beastie Boys are amazing live. If you happen to live in any of the states they'll be hitting, you should go.

Pretty funny.

I can't say I'm not excited.

I loved Iron Man, and everyone in it. I thought Terrance Howard was good in the role. That being said, having Don Cheadle in Iron Man 2 rather than Terrance Howard? Well, I approve. Don Cheadle is one of my all-time favorite actors, as is Robert Downey Jr. Having those two in a movie together will be fantastic. Plus, the recasting worked out really well for The Dark Knight with Maggie Gyllenhaal.

FYI: When I first saw a picture from Tropic Thunder, I thought Robert Downey Jr. was Don Cheadle. LOL.

Attention Upper East Siders...

According to Ausiello, The CW has ordered two additional episodes of Gossip Girl for this season, which brings it to 24 total, where most other hour-long dramas have a standard 22. I'm glad it's doing well, ratings-wise, because I love the show and I'm tired of shows I like either being on the bubble or canceled.

I love Rock Band, but isn't making a TV show taking it a little far?

Way to have a sense of humor about yourself, Marky Mark.

Apparently Mark Wahlberg wasn't very amused by the Mark Wahlberg Talks to Animals skit that SNL did two weeks ago. I, however, was. It might not have been hilarious in content, but Andy Samberg's impression was spot-on, which is what made it brilliant.

It's sad when people take themselves so seriously. I mean, he used to do this:

The Dark Knight vs. Toy Story 2

My friend Brian finds the funniest things online.

That's just ridiculously well done.

What's up, Supernatural?

I love when they do comedy.

And this is bad why?

This is the cover of the November issue of W magazine, and it's causing controversy. Because she's breast feeding. Even though we can't even really see anything.

This country is so fucked up. Really. Try bitching about, oh, I don't know, the fact that the government gave AIG 85 BILLION DOLLARS to save their asses and so the AIG employees went on a spa retreat that cost $440,000. That's a real controversy, America.

General TV news

The USA Network has renewed Burn Notice and Psyche. This makes me happy.

Not making me happy is the general lack of interest in Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. Is the problem that Fox just doesn't know how to work with a sci-fi show? It's not lack of advertising, really. I don't know what the problem is, but the show kicks ass and people should be watching it. I mean, I'm not even well-versed on the Terminator mythology, and I had no problem catching on. Just...watch it, ok? Fox recently ordered two more scripts, but what I want to hear is about the back nine. Or, back seven, in this case.

Hello, pretty.

James Franco is on the cover of Out Magazine to promote his upcoming movie Milk. He is ridiculously good looking.

Two Twilight posts in a row?

Yeah, well, it's been a slow-ish week, and I've been busy working on my Halloween costume.

Here's the official trailer.

Twilight HD Exclusive Trailer

Wednesday, October 8, 2008

This poster sucks. Just like the movie probably will.

The new Twilight poster. I agree with everything Amy Wilkinson has to say about it over on EW.com. Why bother making such a big deal about how beautiful Edward/RPattz is if you're going to just make him look like shit?

James Gunn's PG Porn

Don't know who James Gunn is? Well, he wrote and directed Slither, which was actually really good, and he used to be married to Jenna Fischer. And now he's making these little web shows, aptly titled James Gunn's PG Porn, for those who love everything about porn except the sex.

The first one stars Nathan Fillion, who is never not awesome.

Nailing Your Wife


I want this Dismember-Me Zombie Doll. My birthday is in a month.

"My friends" is the new "Maverick"

But I am not McCain's friend. And I want this shirt.
Available here.

Battlestar News.

Season 4.0 (i.e. the first half of Season 4) will be released on January 6th along with a boatload of bonus material. Also included: Razor, which many, many people already bought. Thanks for that, Universal DVD. (I didn't buy it because I wasn't a huge fan of the movie itself, but now, who cares? I'll have it anyway).

I'm ready for the second half of the season. Bring it.

I think I might be a fan.

I didn't expect it, but Anne Hathaway was really, really good on SNL last weekend. The skits weren't that great, but she never visibly looked at the cue cards, always hit her jokes, and sang, which was a surprise. Plus, she made fun of herself, which I always respect in a person. So, let me jump aboard the Hathaway Bandwagon. I officially think she's pretty awesome.

A Mesa, Arizona Success Story

I love Jimmy Eat World. Just...fyi.

They make me so happy.

Sunday, October 5, 2008

This one might be better than the political one, though.

Andy Samberg NAILS his Mark Wahlberg impression. This is the best animal-related skit since Brian Fellow!

Another great SNL political skit.

It's kind of expected now, isn't it?

De - wait for it - lightful!

Television Without Pity has an interview with Craig Thomas, one of the creators of How I Met Your Mother up right now. It's not spoilery, really, but gives decent hints about things to come.

Howard Stern got married.

He said it would never happen. I was listening to his show when he got divorced, when he met Beth Ostrofsky, when they moved in together, and he always said he'd never get married again. Well, now he has. Congrats to the happy couple. I've always been a fan of his, and I hope their marriage is a great one.

Kirk Cameron is crazy.

This is old news - old in that it's from over a week ago - but I just read about it. Kirk Cameron had his wife stand in for an on-screen kiss in a movie he did because he "vowed to only kiss her" when they got married. Dude. You're an actor. Actors kiss other people. If you don't want to do that, don't take roles with kissing. Relax. I seem to remember Chelsea being on Growing Pains too, which means she just might understand if her husband has to kiss another lady as part of his job.

On the other hand, I suppose it's nice that he's so committed. But still. You're. An. Actor.

*Couldn't resist posting a pic of little tiny Leo from his Growing Pains days. Aww!

Paul Newman. :( It's still sad.

Robert Redford wrote a nice article about his departed friend here.

Entertainment Weekly has him on the cover (see above) and has a nice article, tributes, and a list of 30 unforgettable roles as well.

Should be a good night of TV

I've never watched The L Word, but I really enjoyed Secret Diary of a Call Girl, so this news about the show getting a second season makes me happy. I'm also looking forward to the Diablo Cody-created show with Toni Collette.

Register to Vote. Leo says so.

I've been registered since before I was even 18, because I was going to be 18 by the next election. I was more excited to be able to vote than any other privilege of being "of age" (which, admittedly, there aren't many other than voting). I've never missed an election since, whether they're state ones or the ever important Presidential ones.

Pass this on to people who haven't registered. They're running out of time.
