WHOOOOOO. THIS HAS BEEN A CRAZY WEEKEND, FOR SERIOUS. IDEK.

Coherent update maybe tomorrow, but for now, I have some of the best friends in the world.

Exhibit A: From this year's SD Comic Con!!
Psych videos )


Exhibit B: A Futurama/Farscape crossover fic, with bonus Stargate parodying! Ahaha, I love the intarnetz.


Exhibit C: finally, I leave you with JANE AUSTEN'S FIGHT CLUB!

Cliiiick. You know you want to.
ladyoflorien: (Accomplished: Hiro - Yatta!)
I just received an e-mail from my nephew, asking if I would do this with him someday. My answer was, of course, yes.


Also, GOOD NEWS, EVERYONE!: Futurama will return WITH its original cast!!!!!! (Headline gacked from [livejournal.com profile] gypsyjr) EEEEEEEEE, I AM SO EXCITED! MORE FODDER FOR MY HEADVOICE! \o/!!!!
ladyoflorien: (Crazy: FF Mal A Little Bit Crazy)
Thank you, Old Navy, without whom it would be impossible for me to wake up at 8am with "The Safety Dance" stuck in my head.

>.<

This is enough to drive anybody mad.

Also, "FUTURAMA" RETURNS! Yaaaaaaay!

Nathan Fillion: The EW Pop Culture Personality Test. This is old in internet years, but it's adorable and worth a re-read. "Some might say 'geeky.' I might say 'super-duper cool.'" ♥♥♥

This is also a little bit older, but check out the awesome Green Lantern Fan Made Trailer! Why, o ye gods of YouTube, will you not let me download? One day this link will disappear, and I will cry tears of sadness. Also, is it bad that I recognized more than half the clips he used before I even read the list at the end? Yeeaah.
ladyoflorien: (Confused: FR What smells like blue?)
Okay, this isn't my usual fare. It's also just a teeny little spattering! Kind of a drive-by post for my new bestest friend Brittany. ;)

MORBO ICONS WILL KILL YOU:
1. 2.

So.. humans have easily injured knees. My race will find this information very useful indeed. Mwahwahahahaha! )
ladyoflorien: (Annoyed: Ouran - Get out of Renge's fand)
It's been a while since I've done one of these. Not for lack of effort or anything. I have saved goodies posts from February--FEBRUARY!--that, honestly, I'll probably post anyway for hilarity reasons. Also, just so I have notes in my journal about what happened when. Heh. Outdated news for the win, guys.

Hopefully these aren't TOO outdated (we'll ignore the fact I meant to post these a week and a half ago)...

Joss Whedon/Dr. Horrible
Guys, I want you to look closely at this screencap. No, not at the hilariously wonderful Neil Patrick Harris. Over in the window, all the way to the left. What do you see? Read more... )

Fan Videos: Dr. Horrible: The Early Years - Episode 1 and Episode 2. This kid is adorable.

More Dr. Horrible icons. I imagine these little suckers are all over the place now, but these ones were prettiful. I gives them special props. Also, there are five pages of them. So, keep yourselves busy. ;)

Also, the Captain Hammer comic rocks my socks. Seriously. While you're there, check out Sugar Shock too. ♥'s Joss.

Have any of you come to know the love of Patrick Rothfuss? If not, you must commence with reading his blog forthwith! The man, a fantasy fiction writer, is also one of the most hilarious personages I've come across in my internet meanderings. His blog is one of my few happy places. And he recently posted a review/reaction for Dr. Horrible. Read more... )

Also, Patrick Rothfuss Interviews Felicia Day Okay. I have to ask. Is Joss Whedon as cool as I think he is? Yes, he's worthy of every kind of crush you could develop, I hate to say it. He's one of the most creative people I've ever met and he has a good and true heart. A real gentleman and a pleasure to be around.

Epic Fu interview with Jed, Maurissa, and Zack. Pretty short little interview, in which they talk about a most awesome contest I fully intend on entering, if I can ever find the alleged information they promised would be on the alleged website...

And for those without iTunes, you can still watch the whole thing here. Don't worry, totally on the up-and-up. Joss gets props.

Oh, also? [livejournal.com profile] jedi_bria is writing Dr. Horrible fanfic. I heart this woman with all my soul.

Chat excerpt in which Bria and I unwisely combine two fandom obsessions - Dr. Horrible and Lord of the Rings )

Movies
Sony May Infect With "Venom". Oh no. Oh no oh no oh no. Oh god NO. *facepalms*

Let me preface this by saying I have not seen The Dark Knight, nor do I have any intention whatsoever of seeing The Dark Knight, so these thoughts are completely and utterly biased. Also, going behind a cut tag for those who are easily offended. Read more... )

This sounds like an amazing movie. Why haven't I seen it in theaters or advertised??

"Cinematic Titanic: The Oozing Skull" is AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD at the low, Steve Jobsian price of $9.99! I STILL NEED TO SEE THIS! Also, I pulled this from the CT Newsletter: Read more... )

MST3k 20th Anniversary Box Set )

Robert Downey, Jr. Steps Up for Sherlock. Aw man. Not pleased!

Ho jeeze... am I the only one who didn't know they were making a new Green Hornet movie with Seth Rogen? Funnyman Seth Rogen is working on the screenplay for the upcoming adaptation of The Green Hornet. In addition to penning the script, Rogen will also star as millionaire publishing magnate Brit Reid and his alter ego, the crime-busting Green Hornet. Columbia Pictures plans to release the film on June 25, 2010, which is exactly two years from today. No word yet as to who will play the Green Hornet's sidekick Kato, previously played by martial arts star Bruce Lee in the 1960s television series. Rogen has expressed interest in having Stephen Chow take the role. Rogen will also serve as the film's executive producer. Taken from here.

For all lovers of National Treasure (of which there should be MANY): Are you planning another National Treasure now? We are planning it. Whether we make it or not is tricky. We will make it if we feel we're not going to embarrass ourselves by making it, which means we think we've come up with a great story and somewhere for the characters to go. Taken from here. I hope they make more [good] ones. I deeply enjoy the National Treasure franchise.

OH NO. Tom Cruise a "Top Gun" Again? *HEADDESK*

Futurama
Interview: Futurama's David X. Cohen. There are some periodic flashbacks that explain a little more about things that happened [in the] first [film]. There'll be a couple instances of that in Bender's Game [due out this fall]. We explain the back story a little bit more of Nibbler and of the Professor and there will be a few explanations of things that happened. The attempt is made, at least, and I hope we pulled it off to do those things in such a way that if you didn't see them the first time, it'll just be a bonus for those people who say, "A-ha! That explains why..." WHOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Now all I need is to see The Beast With a Billion Backs. *headdesk*

Random
Tiny Ninja Theater presents: Macbeth. This is the answer. The question is "what is the most awesome thing ever?!"
ladyoflorien: (Evil: LOTR Merry/Pip Bill/Ted)
Hai! My first icon post! I is so excited! (Curse you, lolcats, for ruining my grammar!)

Massive amounts of info and images behind the cut tag. Go look! Enjoy! Share!

Preview:


86 Icons: Firefly Cast, Futurama, Pushing Daisies + Bases )


I'm currently working on a page to house all my icons, so you can see my older icons as well. Also, if you like these icons and think you know someone else who would appreciate them, spread the love! The more the merrier! :)

Icon post TWO: THE REVENGE OF THE DWEEB, is immenent. Some things included: Farscape icons en masse, Fruits Basket, lolcats, and moooore. Look out for that. ;)

Goodies!

ladyoflorien: (Random: Fifth Element Multipass)
You know what band I'm really into lately? Athlete. These guys are fantastic; go check them out.

Terry Pratchett has been diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's disease. ... Wow. ... That is really depressing.

I want a Fruity Oaty Bar lunch box. Some cool new Firefly/Serenity things are in our future! Er, and in our now. Ish? I really need to go pick up Those Left Behind. Can't waaaaaait for the new comics! And ohhh my god, I want THIS!

Exclusive excerpt from Serenity Found, "I, Malcolm". This has been around for a while, but I just needed to link it. It's a short essay written by Nathan Fillion on what it was like playing Mal, and it is fantastic. "As the show went on, I quickly understood how much I depended on those motivated, creative, hard-working ladies and bastards (typed with love, you bastards). Certainly, I was a small cog in a smooth-running (almost all the time) machine that produced product. Bottled sunshine? White lightning? Liquid gold? Red kryptonite? Call it what you will, it was great, it had kick, and would probably take ten years off Superman's life."

Um, that is the best suggested product pairing EVER, Amazon. Seriously... such brilliance. Such brilliance.

How To Lose Friends and Alienate People. How did I not know they were making this book into a movie?! There is a teaser trailer on this page, too! AND THE CAST! I am so excited.

I know I don't generally post anything outside of fandom goodies, but look! Dinosaur fossils! I am still an archaeologist at heart, even if my academic career says otherwise...

Because apparently I have nothing better to do with my time, I have been making icons. *shakes head* I am a pathetic person, and I'll probably be making an icon post in the near future. Look out for that. =P
ladyoflorien: (General: FB Mabudachi Trio)
(This post is over a week late, so if some of the news is a little outdated.... oops.)

Given the enormous size of this Goodies Post, I have decided to introduce a new format. The links and goodies will hereby be categorized alphabetically and by fandom for easier viewing and locating.

Anime
Test Your AniKnowledge Here! 70 Trivial Questions on Anime/Manga/Seiyuu! This is possibly the ultimate Anime quiz. I haven't done it yet, but I glanced over some of the questions and comments, and it looks like a really hard test. I'm excited to try my luck with it. If you fill it out, let me know your score.

Books/Comics/Graphic Novels
I really want to read the new "The Gunslinger Born" graphic novel. It's part of Stephen King's "Dark Tower" series, though, and I am not a Stephen King fan. However, borders.com has pages from the novel up for viewing, and my interest is piqued. To read or not to read, that is the question...

System of a Down Drummer Opens Comic Book Store. This has got to be one of the coolest things in music news I've heard since Radiohead released their entire album on-line on a donation basis. They don't carry any Serenity/Firefly swag yet, but I have high hopes for torpedo comics...

I love XKCD. A Princess Bride joke in the middle of a h4ck3r rant? This man is brilliant. Read this guy's comic: it is gold. (also the link I posted is part 5 in a 5-part comic, so you might want to go back to part 1 to get the whole story)

Futurama
IT'S D-DAY FOR FUTURAMA! That's right, the NEW Futurama movie, "Bender's Big Score," was officially released TODAY! I've seen the movie, due to sneaky underhanded on-line downloading means (but fully intend on renting the DVD and watching the episodes when they're aired on TV, because Matt Groening deserves my money, yo), and I have to tell you guys it is AWESOME. I have missed my Futurama! So, in honor of this auspicious day follow the yellow brick link to Can't Get Enough Futurama's special page of goodies (including reviews, articles, pictures, interviews, video and audio clips)! I highly recommend checking out the links to WIRED magazine--they did a great job on the article. *sigh* Can't wait for the next movie!!!!

Lord of the Rings
Also, I've been meaning to post this for a while but keep forgetting: DM of the Rings: a comic involving both LOTR and RPG humor. It is good stuff, especially if you've ever played an RPG before. One of my favorite comics can be found here (yay for Monty Python crossovers!). I think I annoyed M when she took me to her SW RPG last time I visited because of how not invested I was in what the DM was saying. I've been playing RPGs for over 7 years now, of course I'm uninterested in what the DM is saying! To quote the author of this comic: The DM will do a lot of talking, but if he's not rolling the dice then what he's saying is probably not important. The DM is mostly just there for mocking purposes. Anyhoo, be sure you read this comic AND the notes underneath. Obviously a DM in real life, this guy follows up each comic with an amusing post about the complexities of his role as DM and the idiocy of the people he plays with. Gotta love RPGers; I think I laughed the hardest when the comments for this comic quickly degenerated into an argument over who shot first: Han Solo or Greedo. I ♥ GEEKS!

Australia, meet Middle Earth. Whoever drew this is simultaneously not doing enough with their life and one of the coolest people ever ("Middle Perth" *snortgiggle*). Click here for the direct image link.

Movies
Did anyone else know they were making an Iron Man movie? I found out about this by accident as I was surfing around IMDB yesterday. At first I was excited. Then I looked at the cast. Robert Downey Jr.?!?! Are you kidding me?! Clearly you must be kidding me, because only a complete moron would think, "Hey, you know who would make a great Tony Stark? Robert Downey Jr.!" WHAT THE HELL, MOVIE INDUSTRY?! I am also not sure how I feel about Samuel L. Jackson being cast as Nick Fury. As a rule all Samuel L. Jackson movies suck, so aside from all the other evidence this movie will be a bomb, casting Samuel L. Jackson was like giving it the kiss of death. People... please... please don't ruin all of my favorite comics, mmkay? I mean, don't you think you're hurting me enough with The Dark Knight?? *stabs Christopher Nolan* We hates you, precious! *holds back yet another overly-agitated Batman rant*

Check out http://www.cinematictitanic.com/ Why? BECAUSE THE MST3K TEAM IS BACK, BABY! That's right, all the info is right there in this page. Please give it a look and pass the link along to spread the news. I am so very very excited for this. Yay movie riffing! (and in case you miss the link, starwars.com interviews Joel)

Stargate SG-1 (even though Ben Browder and Claudia Black will always be from Farscape)
MGM's official promotion pictures and movie stills for Stargate: The Ark of Truth. If you haven't heard about the Stargate DVDs, then click here for more info, and Look! The trailer!. It still weirds me out watching SG-1 now. There are too many sci-fi fandom characters in the cast now. It's like watching Starscapefirflandromeda... *rubs temples*

Stargate super panel at Dragon*con video 1, video 2, and video 3. Videos of the cast of SG-1 speaking at their Dragon*Con panel this September (Claudia speaks in videos 1 and 3). Also, Michael Shanks talks about spoofing Farscape. Oi vey, yo. ;)

Swag (various fandoms)
IE Best Buy Polo Shirts. Inspired by the Improv Everywhere Best Buy prank. This is possibly one of the most brilliant things I've seen lately. I want one.

The Piedmont Park swag is up for pre-order at the official Dave Matthews Band store! I am so excited the concert I attended is going to be on a DVD/CD. Wheeee, I told you all in my concert review that it felt like I was "part of DMB history!" BUY THE CD... IT IS GOD AMAZING! DMB also have concert footage up at http://attblueroom.com from their "World's Loudest Pep Rally," so be sure to check that out (always worth seeing Dave perform live). AND they have opened their very own facebook account with 16 different songs available to stream. Yay DMB music!

Writer's Strike stuff
Not the Daily Show, With Some Writer. This video captures one of the writers for The Daily Show cleverly and wittily talking about the on-going writers strike. Follow it up with another video on the writer's strike (by the writers of the Colbert Report). Support the Writers Strike: www.unitedhollywood.com.

Random
World Clock. Has anybody else seen this? This is nuts, yo. Check out all the features, too, by clicking the buttons on the top.

Also, this is mildly amusing. Ahh, the Dutch! Gotta love them. Does anybody know what the song is playing on this page? Because I totally dig it and want to download it. If anybody knows, please leave a comment.


Finally, I will leave you with this week's moment of zen: Something I Bet You Didn't Know! Joss Whedon co-wrote "Toy Story." Yeah, amazing isn't it? I don't know about all of you, but I'd like to keep this man paid. Anyone else? Anyone? www.unitedhollywood.com
ladyoflorien: (Geeky: Strongsad Nerd)
Radiohead Announces New Album Details. This is probably one of the greatest things I've ever heard. I love me some Radiohead. :)

Okay, call me a dummy but I knew nothing about this OR this! A TRILOGY?! HOW DID THIS ESCAPE MY NOTICE?! OH EM GEE, PEOPLE! I'M SO EXCITED!! I'm not going to worry about all the little details and worries that indicate this trilogy, like so many before it, will suck. For now I'm going to do my happy dance. Narnia!!!!

Also, it looks like they've finally settled on a Kurt Cobain movie. Hmmm...

DMB PIEDMONT PARK ATLANTA SHOW TO BE RELEASED ON CD/DVD
We are excited to confirm that the September 8, 2007 Dave Matthews Band show which took place at the Meadow in Piedmont Park, Atlanta, Georgia will be released in its entirety on triple CD and on DVD. Pre-Order details will be coming soon!

To make a donation to the Piedmont Park Conservancy, visit www.piedmontpark.org and click on Support the Park.


CAN I GET A "WOOO HOOO"??? THIS ROCKS!!!!! I wish I was rich enough to donate to Piedmont Park, because on their webpage they have all kinds of concert swag they're giving away with donations. Damn me and my crappy income! Also, they're giving away a guitar SIGNED BY DAVE?! *dies* DAMN ME ALL TO HELL!

In other news, I've discovered recently that Three Days Grace makes for great AMV fodder.... *plots*

Futurama Article to appear in WIRED ... There will be a big article on the return of Futurama in the December issue of WIRED magazine entitled "The WIRED Wish List." The release date is November 27th, the exact day that the Planet Express crew will return to TV screens in "Bender's Big Score." Yay!
