I miss the Muppet Show.

The Muppets doing a Paul Simon song. So awesome.

Slapsgiving Part DOS!


In case you're wondering what to get me for my birthday, which is today, here are a couple suggestions:

Sam Worthington


Chris Pine
The man, not the magazine. Though, I do want the magazine too...

Preferably tied with a red bow. Together or separate. I'm not picky. ;)

Leap Year trailer

<br/><a href="" target="_new" title="Exclusive: 'Leap Year' Trailer">Video: Exclusive: 'Leap Year' Trailer</a>

Sure, it looks like a typical rom-com, and it probably is, but Amy Adams and Matthew Goode are both completely irresistible. And I like rom-coms.

Caprica poster

Interesting. I still haven't watched the pilot, which was released on DVD months ago. I should do that soon.

I don't even know what to say about this. It's clever. And catchy.

Clash of the Titans trailer

I'll most likely wait for DVD, even though it stars one of my favorite new hotties, Sam Worthington.


Goddamn Zach Gilford is hot.

You're like a big bear, man!"


Green Zone trailer

Is Matt Damon ever not awesome?

It's as good as I'd hoped

I was lucky enough to hear Kris Allen's debut album early thanks to a friend who got an advance copy, and let me tell you, it did not disappoint. There aren't any surprises; it's exactly what you'd expect. But the funny thing is: that isn't a negative. Kris's voice is just as lovely as it was on American Idol and his songs are catchy. I think he's going to have a huge career.

Salt trailer

With Tom Cruise this would've been a typical Tom Cruise movie. So glad it was recast to fit Angelina Jolie. She's so much better.

Prince of Persia trailer

I don't care that no one in this movie is actually Persian. It's hot as balls Jake Gyllenhaal and Pirates of the Caribbean type silly, unrealistic, patented Bruckheimer action. I'm there.

Super creepy

I'm currently decorating my room with an Alice in Wonderland theme, tastefully and adult-like, not Disney. And also not Burton, because his take on it is decidedly creepy.

Won't stop me from seeing it the minute it comes out though.

Boston boys FTW!


Seriously. I love the Afflecks and the mighty Damon.

What the...?

Hold the phone. Since when is Jim Parsons hot? Funny, yes. Talented, definitely. But hot?! The world is all askew.

So awesome.

The covers of Abbey Road and London Calling made entirely from Rubik's Cubes. Wow.

I still don't get it

Don't ask me why James Franco is going to be on General Hospital. I read somewhere that he wants to be versed in all aspects of his "craft" or whatever. He's a weird dude, is what it comes down to. Since when do Oscar nominees do guest stints on soaps?

And sure, I'll check it out when it airs. He's a fantastic actor, and I wonder how true he'll play his role (which has been kept under such tight wraps that even Soap Opera Magazine doesn't know what it is) (and I know that because my mom told me). Wouldn't it be awesome if he played it super over the top and cheesy? I mean, most of the performances on those shows are played that way to a certain extent anyway, right? I haven't watched soaps since I was in high school and Marlena was possessed by the Devil on Days. That was my limit of absurdity.

Also, he looks SMOKIN' HOT in the picture released today, so that'll get me to tune in at the very least.


OMG, this is the best news I've read all week (and yeah, it's only Tuesday, but go with me on this). TNT has agreed to air the 13 Season One episodes of Southland, and the 6 existing Season 2 episodes that NBC didn't even bother to try to get on the air before canceling the show last month. In addition to that, TNT will be adding in extra footage to the Season 1 eps, which is awesome.

If you didn't watch Southland last year before NBC executives lost their minds and cut all of their 10 PM programming for Jay fucking Leno, you should definitely check it out on TNT. The show is raw and powerful with a phenomenally talented cast. It's not your average cop show - I generally don't like cop shows - but it's also not glitzy or overly stylized. Seriously, give it a shot.

And if all things go well on TNT, maybe they'll pick the show up permanently. It should match well with the dramas they already have, and clearly they like cop shows - Saving Grace, The Closer, Dark Blue...

That's FOUR zeroes after that one.

Joss Whedon continues to be the most awesome person in Hollywood.

An Open Letter to the Terminator Owners. From a Very Important Hollywood Mogul

Dear Sirs/Ma'ams,

I am Joss Whedon, the mastermind behind Titan A.E., Parenthood (not the movie) (or the new series) (or the one where 'hood' was capitalized 'cause it was a pun), and myriad other legendary tales. I have heard through the 'grapevine' that the Terminator franchise is for sale, and I am prepared to make a pre-emptive bid RIGHT NOW to wrap this dealio up. This is not a joke, this is not a scam, this is not available on TV. I will write a check TODAY for $10,000, and viola! Terminator off your hands.

No, you didn't miscount. That's four -- FOUR! -- zeroes after that one. That's to show you I mean business. And I mean show business. Nikki Finke says the Terminator concept is played. Well, here's what I have to say to Nikki Finke: you are a fine journalist and please don't ever notice me. The Terminator story is as formative and important in our culture -- and my pretend play -- as any I can think of. It's far from over. And before you Terminator-Owners (I have trouble remembering names) rush to cash that sweet cheque, let me give you a taste of what I could do with that franchise:

1) Terminator... of the Rings! Yeah, what if he time-travelled TOO far... back to when there was dragons and wizards? (I think it was the Dark Ages.) Hasta La Vista, Boramir! Cool, huh? "Now you gonna be Gandalf the Red!" RRRRIP! But then he totally helps, because he's a cyborg and he doesn't give a s#&% about the ring -- it has no power over him! And he can carry it AND Frodo AND Sam AND f@%& up some orcs while he's doing it. This stuff just comes to me. I mean it. (I will also offer $10,000 for the Lord of the Rings franchise).

2) More Glau. Hey. There's a reason they're called "Summer" movies.

3) Can you say... musical? Well don't. Even I know that's an awful idea.

4) Christian Bale's John Connor will get a throat lozenge. This will also help his Batwork (ten grand for that franchise too, btw.)

5) More porn. John Connor never told Kyle Reese this, but his main objective in going to the past was to get some. What if there's a lot of future-babies that have to be made? Cue wah-wah pedal guitar -- and dollar signs!

6) The movies will stop getting less cool.

Okay. There's more -- this brain don't quit! (though it has occasionally been fired) -- but I think you get my drift. I really believe the Terminator franchise has only begun to plumb the depths of questioning the human condition during awesome stunts, and I'd like to shepherd it through the next phase. The money is there, but more importantly, the heart is there. But more importantly, money. Think about it. End this bloody bidding war before it begins, and put the Terminator in the hands of someone who watched the first one more than any other movie in college, including "Song of Norway" (no current franchise offer). Sincerely, Joss Whedon.
From here.

And for the record, I think Joss would do a fabulous job with the Terminator franchise if given the chance. Just sayin'.

Most adorable celebrity family Halloween costumes

How freaking cute are these three? I love the tails! Their baby is as cute as I'd expected her to be, too. I heart the Hannigan-Denisofs!
