Well, most everybody's heard about it. Everyone was "tweeting" about it last night. But, it still bears saying: this is the last season of 24. For real, this time. Though, according to this article, it seems like the 24 motion picture is all but a reality, with State of Play screenwriter Billy Ray lined up to do the script. Which I wouldn't mind, because that was a rather decent movie.

My thoughts on the cancellation? Read more... )

Now, since I'm rather depressed, and it's been a while since I've done one of these... how about a Goodies Post? Which is to say "A geek-fest where Gabby flails about random things that in no way are even remotely newsworthy," but hey. GOODIES.

Cinematic Titanic, D*C, BSB, DMB, Psych, funny stuff, OH MY )

I am hoooooome at laaaaaast! Arrived around this time last night... got in a good nap, now have to go to work. Meh. Nine hour workday after sixteen hours in a car does NOT equal good times. D:

But I will survive.

Details about my trip upon my return home this eve, or on the morrow. Depending on how exhausted I am tonight. Until then, a few things:

Cinematic Titanic is going on tour again, this time with a double-feature, two-night event! I WANT TO GO. They'll be in Atlanta on May 15th & 16th, but alas! No money for hotel room, and no one to go with me. Wah. Gabby sad now.

One reason why I adore the Cinematic Titanic guys: They're talking about their latest release, BLOOD OF THE VAMPIRES, in the newsletter, and J. Elvis Weinstein says this: "In my opinion it's our best work to date, and having just performed it live in five cities, it's road-tested funny. Our thanks to the film-makers for providing us with this canvas on which to work - A vampire movie, set in 1800's Mexico but shot entirely in the Philippines with an all-Filipino cast. If this movie had a chemical symbol, it would be Au." I just. BWAAAHAHA.

Piratemod is having a post-tax day sale. 20% off! I think it ends today. GUYS, GUYS, GUYS! SOMEONE SHOULD BUY ME THE TREASURE MAP! It's only $8! XD? (Coupon code is: PM069TXTIME)

And, lastly (but certainly not leastly!), CLUE: 24 EDITION. I just... BWAAAAHAHAHA. I want this. Please, god. It was Nina Meyers in the Oval Office with a BALLPOINT PEN. XD

Fic post.

Yes, you read that right.

Title: He Never Looks Behind Him
Fandom: 24, Day 2
Characters: George Mason, with mentions of other key characters
Rating/Warnings: PG; spoilers up through 2.15
Summary: Broken thoughts are all that's left when you've got less than two minutes to live.
Notes: Baby's first 24 fic. It's only 554 words. It's bitty. Also, it is entirely the fault of [ profile] wordsthatfail, without whose consistent belligerence and enabling, this would never have come to be. It's dedicated to [ profile] moofoot, to whom I promised one fic for every day she was gone on a weekend trip. *eyes calendar* Er... I never said you'd GET them on those days, though. ;)
(Don't expect Shakespeare... honestly. Also, I don't have the 24 DVDs, so many apologies for the italicized quotations that are more than likely not quite right.)

He never looks behind him )

Due to the fact that "24: REDEMPTION" is airing in less than 7 hours and I'm TOTALLY EXCITED ABOUT THAT, I've decided to post a little Goodies Post for ya'll! *skips about*

The Full-length trailer for the new season of 24. Eeee! Kieeeeefer! Also, OMG TONY. *FLAAAAIL* It all goes down in another 4-hour 2-parter, Sunday January 11th and Monday January 12th (8-10pm ET). Hopefully season seven is a bit better than season six. >.>


Face Off: Jack Bauer vs. James Bond. This just plain amused the heck out of me. Also, if you scroll to the bottom of the page, you can see a special video snippet of the making of the school attack scene in "24: Redemption!"

Cinematic Titanic
A new episode of CT is out now! It's the all-new Cinematic Titanic take on "SANTA CLAUS CONQUERS THE MARTIANS." There's all new jokes plus several more minutes of the movie that were cut for time on the MST3K episode. SEE THE TRAILER... "We've got a runner in CT7!"

(Also, according to the newsletter, "the DVD ($14.99) is available at our STORE and following tradition, comes with an autographed thank you card from one of the Titans (psst, this episode is Joel)." XD!)

Nathan Fillion
I'm not sure which surprises me more: the fact that Nathan Fillion actually said that, or the sheer number of items you can purchase with the quote printed on it. *facepalms* Not that it isn't true, but. Come on. Nice, Nathan. Really.

Actually, speaking of which, is there anybody who hasn't heard of the PG Porn project yet? Anybody? No? Just... *facepalms MOAR* If you haven't seen the clip, I highly recommend you don't watch it.

Oh oh oh, and Nathan is going to be in a new ABC sitcom/drama? (trailer) called "Castle!" It looks kind of cheesy but... LOOK AT THAT FACE!! *SMISHES*

Tim Burton
Selections from Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter's feature in Vogue magazine. I heart them.

This is just plain awesome: Essential Headgear For The Modern Astro-Traveller... An entire webpage dedicated to Steampunk inventions? I'm so there. I MEAN, SERIOUSLY. LOOK AT THAT HELMET! I WANT ONE!
