The R2-D2 Case Mod

I'm floored. I didn't think it could go this far. Check out that slideshow too. I would probably go for a Death Star Case Mod though.

Suicide Mistaken for Halloween Decoration

Suicide Mistaken for Halloween Decoration
The apparent suicide of a woman found hanging from a tree went unreported for hours because passers-by thought the body was a Halloween decoration, authorities said.

I'm not going to comment on this.

George Takei is Gay

So... what?

For the record, I'm not gay but I can't believe people are still ashamed of being gay. I can't believe that people still have to hide. What's upsets me about this announcement is that people's sexually orientation is still not their own business. There shouldn't have to be an announcement.

I understand that for him and knowing his background that this is a big deal. I'm glad he was bold enough to announce this especially in the current political atmosphere but someone telling me that they are gay just doesn't get a rise out of me. It doesn't make me feel weird. It's kinda TMI IMO.

On another note-
Announcing he's gay implies that he's still having sex. If he's still able to get it up at 68, I think he should be able to put it where he wants to. :)

Girly Squeal for Gary Sinise

Ever wake up one morning thinking, "Wow, Gary Sinise is hot!".
You too?
Yeah, I finally had that morning myself.

Sober and fully awake, Gary Sinise and hotness never quite went hand in hand. But I gotta tell ya, the vision of him griping and swinging sharp objects about raised his hotness level*.

That's all for now.

I'm still alive

Sorry, I've been swamped.

One word.


It's a month long celebration for me.

ABC is looking for nerds

I hate these these types of casting calls but I had to share.

My name is Kirstin and I am a Casting Producer for ABC Televisions show, Wife Swap. I am reaching out to you in hopes that your group can help me find a family for our show. We are specifically looking for a family that is into Science Fiction.

We want families that not only love the movies and TV shows but also love to attend the conventions and participating in any type of sci-fi club! The premise of the show is to take two very different families and switch the mom's for a week. Each family should consist
of two parents and at least one child over the age of five and should reside in the continental U.S. It's a positive experience for people to learn about other families and other ways of life.

My hope is that you would post this to your yahoo group so that anyone interested in applying, will be able to contact me. This is a very unique experience that can be life changing for everyone. In addition, each family that tapes an episode of Wife Swap receives a $20,000 honorarium. Anyone who refers a family that appears on our program receives $1000 as a 'thank you" from us. (that would be Jen Segrest from, thank you very much)

If you have any questions, please call me at the number below. Please let me know if you are willing to post this to your group so I may keep track of where this message is posted. Thank you for your time.*

Nicholas Cage: Geek, Mad Man or Did He Loose a Bet?

I caught the daily show last night and Jon Stewart went on a rant about Nicholas Cage naming his son Kal-El. While it's not as bad as Pilot Inspektor, I have to really wonder what's going on out there in Hollywood.

When Jon Steward first said it, I thought it was a cute name. A second later I was like, "Wait, did he say Kal-El?". Nah... Wait! WHAT?
Then I thought, wasn't Nicholas Cage going do a Superman movie? I thought that project got scraped. If the project got scraped then why did he name his kid after Superman?
That's when my head started to hurt.

I think the world is about to end

I just can't wrap my mind around why there are so many good TV shows lately. The insanity is that the current state of quality TV, may actually turn into a complaint from me.

I've been starved for good content for so long with the whole Reality TV era that I can't tell if these shows are really good or if my standards have been lowered to accept these shows. I do have to question my standards because of my enjoyment of Charmed but the show isn't horrible and it outlived the latest Star Trek series.

It's getting to a point where I can't TiVo all of the shows at once because they are all competing in the same time slots.
Let's look at this seasons ridiculously impossible to catch all of the good shows line up this season.

*Show that I watch
+Show that I'm forced to obtain by other means because it conflicts with another show in the same timeslot
#Show that I've seen and liked but can't ever catch because something else I like is on
^Show that I've heard is good but I can't fit it into my schedule
~Show that I had to give up

#~Cold Case
^The West Wing
*Law & Order: CI
~Desperate Housewives

^Las Vegas
*CSI: Miami

+House M.D.
^Commander in Cheif
*Law & Order: SVU
^Boston Legal

^Criminal Minds
9pm- Impossible Timeslot
+~Law & Order

^Night Stalker

^Killer Instinct
^Ghost Whisperer

There's nothing to watch.

This is way too many shows to watch. Not mention the re-runs I may want to catch and TV movies. Good TV shouldn't bee this much pressure.

Feast or famine I guess.

Mal is a guy who would shoot Greedo first

from Rotten Tomatoes:

"Like watching the original Star Wars for the first time, or better yet, watching The Empire Strikes Back... Mal is a guy who would shoot Greedo first."

That has to be the best Serenity blurb that I've heard yet!

Serenity: Hell yeah!

I loved this movie and have no complaints....

I'm pretty pissed about Book and Wash but it made for a good movie. I'm glad Simon grew some balls; nice development.

The origin of the Reavers was great storytelling. I'm not sure how the story would look to someone who hadn't watched Firefly though. I half expected for them to discover that River was a Reaver. I miss the Hand of Blue guys but The Operative (Chiwetel Ejiofor) was awesome enough.

I actually feel like holding a candlelight vigil for Wash and Book. I guess we can't have it all.

I'm happy for Joss Whedon. He did a damned good job. Now if he doesn't do any half-assed prequels, he may stay on my good list.
