First order of business: May the Fourth be with you! Yes, happy Star Wars Day, everyone. XD

Who Knew? Yahoo! presents a quick little video on geek holidays.

Second order of business: I blame [livejournal.com profile] ceitfianna and [livejournal.com profile] the_croupier forever for getting me hooked on this game. I now share the torment with you. I created for a while, composing stirring symphonies of light and sound... then I decided to recreate some of my favorite compositions, and... lost. Lost forever in square grid music composition land? Le sigh.

Third order of business: I think my custom mood theme disappeared. :-/

Fourth order of business: Hey guys. I miss you. What's up?

Music
Hm. Ike Turner died on Monday. He was 76.

'U2 3D' Film Hits Theaters Next Month. The first live action movie to be shot, edited and shown in 3-D isn't some Spielberg opus. It's U2 3D, a 92-minute concert film set to premiere in select cities on January 25.

Jermaine Dupri Reveals Jackson 5 Reunion. As for whether Michael will be involved, Jermaine said, "He has to be. He is a Jackson." Yeah, but he sure as heck isn't as cute as he was when he was still a boy. Pun intended.

Andrew Bird - stream the entire album The Mysterious Production of Eggs. If you're not familiar with this man yet, then I seriously suggest you get acquainted. He is made of amazing, and YOU SHOULD LOVE HIM TOO!

And on a similar note, check out Scouting For Girls, for they are the cutest cute that ever cuted. Or something. *hugs them tightly* SUCH HAPPY MUSIC!

Movies
I'm sure by now everyone has heard about this, but for those who have not I'm going to post some of the more comprehensive articles I ran across. I'll also be giving out a healthy dose of my opinion on this endeavor, so remember you were warned in advance. The Hobbit motion pictures )

You know what movies I never knew were made? "Pretty Woman" redone for both China AND Japan. CAN I PLEASE SEE THE JAPANESE VERSION OF "PRETTY WOMAN"? BECAUSE... THE POSSIBILITIES FOR HYSTERICAL ARE UNENDING! Seriously, this discovery just made my day.

Time's Top 10 of the Year lists. 50 top ten lists, including the top ten movies (Sweeney Todd made #5 on the first list, and Waitress #9!), DVDs, TV series (Pushing Daisies #5!! Eeee!), etc.

And, this is not technically movie news, but USA cancels Dead Zone and 4400. *sigh* I knew The Dead Zone would get canceled soon (poor crazy Anthony Michael Hall), but I'm still sad to see it go. Unpredictable programming schedule and all.

Toshiba Builds 100x Smaller Micro Nuclear Reactor. Environmentally sound? Heck no.

Goodies!

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

what i am

cowboy boots and summer dresses; thirty-something self-proclaimed geek, writer, artist, lover, laugher, cowgirl, fighter; chronically ill and chronically smiling, a mess of leather and lace, wild curls, and summer dresses; beating it off the beaten path, creating something out of nothing, making art with you. ♥
