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: (ON A MISSION: 24 - Jack is SAVING ZELDA)
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!

There's a lot this week, and some of the news is old, therefore I'm putting it behind a cut-tag to spare my friends page. Those of you who are interested, please clicky-clicky! ;)

Goodies and News! Farscape, Firefly, LotR, Music, Movies, etc! )

All right, this wasn't nearly as big as I intended for it to be. I ran out of time. More updates are imminent, but for now I run to catch a PLANE! Oh family visiting, oh impromptu trips away from home, how you backlog my journal so!

As of a few moments ago:
sardonicynic: You're the Nathan to my Tony!
(see: previous friends-locked post for clarification)

I? Am seriously amused by this girl.
ladyoflorien: (Random: Fifth Element Multipass)
HEY GAIS! Yesterday was a fantastic day in geek history. Why? Because it's the day when both Rockne S. O'Bannon (writer and producer for Farscape!) and John Lasseter (head of Pixar, and coincidentally the guy who heads the translation of Miyuzaki films into English) were born (in '55 and '57 respectively)! Also? ALSO?! Batman the series premiered on ABC on the SAME DAY in '66! AND in fiction it's the day HAL goes operational (in 2001: A Space Odyssey)!!!! Dudes, this should be a nationally recognized holiday! People should get Jan 12 off of work! Why is this not happening?

On a related note, it both amuses and saddens me that Hayao Miyazaki was born on the same day Momofuku Ando died (January 5th). Dudes, I can't believe it's already been a year since the great Cup O Noodles inventor died! Sheesh. Time flies. And Graham Chapman & Terry Brooks were also born on the same day (Jan 8). Geek solidarity, yo.

I'm sorry, FARSCAPE FANS! Stop what you're doing! What I'm about to show you wins ALL: Ben Browder on Party of Five. That's right people, YOU HEARD ME RIGHT. BEN BROWDER WAS ON PARTY OF FIVE. I DID NOT KNOW THIS, UNTIL [ profile] wordsthatfail (who rightly gets my firstborn for this) FOUND THIS PAGE. LOOK! AT THE FLANNEL! AND THE HAIR! AND THE RIDICULOUSNESS THAT IS THE 90s! There are GALLERIES, people! GALLERIES AND GALLERIES OF PICTURES OF BEN BROWDER ON PARTY OF FIVE. This? Is my new favorite page ever. Aaaaand I'm so making icons.

5-page Vanity Fair article on Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. There are some good photos included. Looks like May 22 is the official release date. Here's hoping it's good, and Shia LaBeouf, bless his little heart, doesn't screw it up.

New York Entertainment: For Your Consideration: Alan Tudyk of 'Death at a Funeral' for Best Supporting Actor. Death at a Funeral, not Fun at a Funeral! Death! A very nice article about Alan. Also, um, picture of him NAKED?! O__O WHY DID I NOT GO SEE THIS MOVIE?! CURSES!

Nathan Fillion Interview (for White Noise 2). I think this is old, because I remember seeing bits of the interview other places and giggling, but it deserves re-posting because HEE! NATHAN FILLION! COME READ HOW ADORABLE AND FUNNY HE IS!

EW's "Sci-fi's 25 Top Movies & TV from the Past 25 Years". Dude, this is a very comprehensive list. Quantum Leap, Futurama, ESOTSM, Firefly/Serenity, Back to the Future, ST:TNG, etc etc. Granted, they have a few bombs up there I don't agree with, and HEE, ROCK ON FARSCAPE FANS FOR PUTTING UP A FUSS! Because, seriously? You pick "Lost" over "Farscape" on a sci-fi list?! AT LEAST FARSCAPE HAD A WELL-THOUGHT-OUT AND ENGAGING PLOT. KEY WORD THERE: PLOT. *shakes head* I actually think I'm more about the 17 choices that didn't make the cut than the 25 that did, honestly...

Why I love Joss Whedon: Joss Whedon speaks at WGA Rally in Boston (1 of 2) and Joss Whedon speaks at WGA Rally in Boston (2 of 2). This man owns my soul. Not only is this extremely informative about the writers strike, but it's delivered with humor, wit, and modesty. Also, Dragons! Heck yes!

Muppet Wars. I respect anybody who can beatbox and play the flute SIMULTANEOUSLY. Not to mention play the Muppet Show theme/Star Wars themes!

Did anybody catch Improv Everywhere on ABC's 20/20 last Friday? I forgot to watch because the "Psych" season premier was on at the same time. They supposedly had a brief segment on IE in the opening act of the program with clips of the No Pants ride in 2004 as well as the Mp3Experiment Four from this summer.

All right, I leave you now to your own devices. This goodies post was particularly fangirly, and I apologize for that. But, hello: Me = FANGIRL. I loves the boys, yo.

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. ♥
