The Backstreet Cockatoo. This is what the Boys were talking about on TRL last week, just in case you haven't seen it. Hee.

Review of Unbreakable ) WARNING!: The preceding review is brutally honest! If you can't handle a review that contains anything more than "OMGOMGOMG I LUV IT BSB R AMAZZZING!!1" and a frank, straightforward review might make you angry, then don't read it. I don't have time to deal with flamers.

Has anybody else heard about two episodes of Star Trek the Original Series coming to theaters for a special 2-day event?! I just found out about this yesterday. You cannot believe how much I'd love to go see this.

I can has cheezburger (dot) com is one of the greatest websites known to man. When I saw this picture I laughed so loud it echoed off my monitor. Also, for all the Star Trek TNG fans (or X-men, for that matter)...

I meant to post this a LONG time ago, but I completely forgot! Amazing Bathrooms. The world's 13 most amazing bathrooms. No, seriously. Check them out.

Custom Yoda My Little Pony. I'm not even kidding. Look at it! It is a thing of beauty. If you go to this chick's deviantart gallery she has some other amazing My Little Pony creations up too, such as Edward Elric from FMA and Tohru Honda from FB. Heee.

Is it sad that I really want The Daring Book for Girls?

And I REEEAAAALLY want this. I already know it's sad. Hee, but funny! Oh man I wish I could buy this!

I'm suddenly having a complete block on whatever else I wanted to post. So enjoy these goodies for now. See ya!

For those of you not on the BSB mailing list... BSB news ) I have to be honest. I'm excited for the new album, but I'm a bit disappointed at the write-up. I was really hoping the Boys would mix it up a bit, release something a bit different, experiment with the music some. I love their voices, their harmonies are great, but I don't want to hear the same recycled songs over and over again just because some big label says they're "hit material" and worth "big bucks." Every now and again they do something totally different than what they release for the radio, like "Beautiful Woman," or "Siberia," so I know they can stretch their wings and still sound good. But every single album seems to have the same song -- "I Want It That Way," "Shape of my Heart," "Inconsolable," they all sound alike. It aggravates me. WIDEN OUT BOYS, FOR PETE'S SAKE! AND DO A FREAKIN' A CAPELLA SONG PLEASE!! Oi.

Also, I finally got to talk to Bria tonight, and during our conversation she started going through her BSB photos to see if she had a picture of AJ wearing a bandanna (long story there). Anyway, in the middle of a perfectly legitimate conversation she suddenly busted out with this:

Bria: ...why is there a picture of Gollum in my Nick folder?

I don't know, maybe you had to be there, but that cracked me up. I couldn't stop laughing for an honest-to-goodness good 5 minutes or so. It just seemed so terribly appropriate to me that there would be a Gollum picture in her Nick folder, and the absurdity of the statement in the middle of our conversation was just priceless. Even better than one of my more recent quotes that I'm proud of... I have quite a collection of toys on my desk. Just one of those things writers do to enable their procrastination. I have a Darth Sidius toy near my monitor (you know the ones you got at burger king with the force control action squirt gun?), and a couple inches toward the other side of my monitor I have two miniature LotR busts Bria gave me when FotR came out. Well I had a friend here last week who felt the need to touch, pick up, or move every single toy on my desk. I noticed a few days ago that Darth Sidius had been moved considerably closer to my LotR busts so I sighed aloud as I moved him back to the other side, "Please refrain from letting Boromir and Pippin near the Dark Lord!" I said it in all sincerity, and the absurdity and appropriateness of the statement didn't strike me until several seconds later. I laughed unabashedly. I'm funny, yo.

Also, I am ecstatic to announce that a new Wes Anderson movie was released in theaters today: The Darjeeling Limited (trailers available on that site, too). I'm so excited about this movie that I might just pay the outrageous theater ticket price so I can see it as soon as possible. God I love Wes Anderson. The man owns my soul. Now, if only I can find the preceding prequel short Hotel Chevalier on-line somewhere...

Also, for all you hardcore Wes Anderson (or Jason Schwartzman) fans, Borders.com has about 7 hysterical interviews with the duo about the new movie. Can't wait can't wait can't waaaait!

Sooo... last night was the season premier of "Heroes" and I'm probably the only person on this planet that didn't watch it. Because I never actually watched the entirety of last season in time. Oops. It's fine, I'll probably end up downloading it at some point in the future...

Watched sister's new show, "Journeyman." It was... interesting. I kind of liked it. We'll see how it goes the next couple of weeks. Also watched "Chuck," which was hysterical. I also kind of liked it. Yet another 'we'll see'. Also noteworthy to mention, Wanda Sykes is one of my new favorite actresses evah. Hysterical.

Did all you Backstreet fans know they finally released their video for "Inconsolable"? Well they did, and it's up at the new Backstreet Boys website. The new site is pretty nifty. Lots of new content. Oh, and they have the official track listing and cover art for "Unbreakable" up, too! 13 brand new songs! Ahh, can't wait. Maybe they'll finally do a dang a capella song... without Kevin? No baritone? meh. Stupid Kevin. Also, plenty of TV spots lined up for the end of October, and did anybody see this People magazine article? Interesting stuff! No wonder Nick looks good in the new video, he lost over 40lbs! Sheesh.

Hey, is anyone else reading Joss Whedon's new comic book, "Sugarshock"? This thing is brilliant. I highly recommend you stop whatever it is you're doing and read the pages up on the above website right now. No, really, now.

They've finally released the final DVD of Ergo Proxy! Today volume 6 hit the market, and let me just tell you how excited I am about this. I think I'm going to buy the box set when they release it. Regardless, I've been slavering for some good DVD-rips of the episodes to come out on a bittorrent site for EVER now, and hopefully that will happen soon. WANT DVD-RIPS, PEOPLE!

I also want the last dang episode of Hana Kimi. *sigh* Curse you, Em. Curse you.

I'm about to pimp a new band called Anuna... if you guys like Irish/Celtic music, especially that of a choral nature, then you definitely have to check these guys out. They are AMAZING. Check out the concert they did at a Borders bookstore here.

All right, I'm off to watch the season premier of House and the latest episode of Beauty and the Geek. Have I mentioned how awesome the cast for B&G is this year? It is. Awesome. I'm so addicted to this show. Can I just say the casting bits in the premier episode last week were so frickin' 'ilarious I almost peed my pants? Good stuff, good stuff. I wish I had applied for this season! ;)
