Because now we need something mindless and silly and fun to balance out all the other stuff, I'd just like to say OMG THE MUPPET MOVIE OPENS IN THEATERS TODAY I AM SO EXCITED!!!11!!!1!

Ahem. I have always loved the Muppets, all throughout childhood and up until now. I was heartbroken when pieces of the company were sold off, one by one, during the early-to-mid oughties - and subsequently gleeful when they bought back pieces, though not quite what they were. I've been dying for more Muppet media, and I have to admit I'm going to be sad now that the hype has culminated in the release date. My inbox has been filled with youtube updates of Muppet promotions, and my twitter feed (thanks to @MuppetsStudio and @ToughPigs) has been filled with fun news articles and things. I don't want it to stop! Ah well.

I'm sharing a few of my favorite Muppet/Jason Segel related things. :D

-Clips of Jason Segel hosting Saturday Night Live with special guests The Muppets! I recorded last week's SNL, and it was awesome for three reasons: 1) MUPPETS; 2) Jason Segel is actually the most adorable man that's ever lived; 3) Florence and the Machine were the musical guests. Oh, Flo. You so crazy. My favorite of the three clips is #2 (the "REALLY?!" skit), mainly because Seth looked like he was having a really good time. XD However, if you look closely in the last skit (#3), you can see Flo in the background as a Massachusetts bar patron. I'm endlessly amused by this.

-American Way Magazine scans. I've read a lot of promotionals and articles over the last several months related to this movie, but this one is my favorite. This is the one that won me over to the sheer adorability that is Jason Segel. They're high-quality scans, and it's a really wonderful read.

-Bakerella: The Muppets Cake Pops. Guys! Recipe and instructions for making 5 Muppet cake pops! I was looking forward to my nephew coming to visit me this week, and had planned on making a big deal out of spending a day goofing around in the kitchen making these cake pops before taking him to see the movie. Well, he isn't coming now, but I MIGHT MAKE THESE ANYWAY. Because they're adorable and fun. I'm definitely printing the instructions, anyway.

And, finally, this - because it's just too cute:

Jason Segel and Kermit the Frog's original video inviting Amy Adams to be in Disney's The Muppets.

Most epic win I've seen since... the climax to that Indian action film Rick linked last night. Heh.
ladyoflorien: (Introspective: Joss Whedon Be Yourself)
Right. So, now that I've had a good and epic freak out rant, let's get back to your regularly scheduled programming. No, not the radio silence! :|

SO, GUYS. I haven't actually been keeping up with my flist, because I fail. YOUR MISSION, IF YOU CHOOSE TO ACCEPT IT: update me on what I've missed! This means: links to LJ posts, or fun pictures/videos/links, or tagging me for memes, or ANYTHING. *pokes at you allllll*

Cliiiick. You know you want to.

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 )
ladyoflorien: (Random: Inigo Montoya nametag)

Apparently, early gray mornings breed these things.

*scrubs eyes*
ladyoflorien: (Amused: ROFL diagram)

My day has been considerably improved.
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 [ profile] gypsyjr) EEEEEEEEE, I AM SO EXCITED! MORE FODDER FOR MY HEADVOICE! \o/!!!!
ladyoflorien: (Geeky: Strongsad Nerd)
Nrgh. Long day was long. How about some random happy?

I meant to post this stuff on Thursday night (because, srsly, this is how I spent my 25th birthday [after the second degree burns of course lolol]), but I generally fail at life. SO I'M POSTING NAO.

Random happy, mostly from youtube, stolen from your friends at the local crack chat! )

(Ahahaha, and I actually meant to post THIS last night! My failure, let me show you it.)
ladyoflorien: (Amused: FF LOL)

Also? YES:

I. heart. geeks.

Dudes. Four years ago today they released "Return of the King" in theaters. Where does time go? In honor of this auspicious day (suspicious? what day is it?), check it out: How We Became Middle Earth, yet another book! This one about NZ meets Middle Earth.

*wibbles* Whedon, Minear Creative Screenwriting Expo DVDs on sale for $12.95. I... I want! *pouts dramatically* DANG IT I HATE BEING POOR! I really want this.

Note to self: stop forgetting to buy Serenity comics, because new ones are being released and the longer you wait the more money you'll pay. Also to be released, "A Shepherd's Tale" comic featuring Book. Wheee, we get some *spoilerific* BACKSTORY on Book! Finally! I WISH THERE WAS GOING TO BE MORE FIREFLY, STUPID FOX NETWORKS! *shakes fist*

Oh, I am so all about THIS ACTION! Star Trek the tour?!?! I'm so hitting this sucker when it comes to NC. "THE TOUR will provide a unique opportunity to experience Star Trek up close and personal with sets, props and models, motion-simulator rides, merchandise and more all under one very large roof." Wheee!

Japanese Exercise Video/Language class? This... this... this is about the funniest thing I've seen in YEARS. No exaggeration. I laughed until there were tears - it's been a while since I've done that. The phrases they're reciting are so serious and ... they're doing AEROBICS?! *dies* WATCH THIS VIDEO.

50 Nerdy Things to do Before You Die. Some of these are pretty clever/hysterical. My favorite has to be #25.

I automatically endorse any comic that can make a respectable Pee Wee Herman joke. Such brilliance.

How many people have seen the new BSB music video for Helpless When She Smiles? I'm almost embarrassed to post this here. This video is so bad it's led me to declare the Boys just aren't even trying anymore. Aw what the hell, how about a black and white video filmed with a random emo girl out in the middle of nowhere? That sounds new and original. *shakes head* Like a bad Calvin Kline commercial. And I have to say I am rather annoyed that they chose this song to be their next single. Out of all the other perfectly respectable songs on their new album, they chose the freakin' rehashed syrupy overdone BALLAD. BOYS, DO I HAVE TO COME BEAT YOU?! WHAT ON EARTH ARE YOU THINKING?!?! *pinches bridge of nose* Worst choice for a single EVER.

In case you haven't seen it already, The trailer for The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian. The trailer begins playing immediately. And also, screen-captures! May 16th!!! Wheeeee!

Also, I would like to preface this link by saying I in no way endorse this movie: Trailer for The Dark Knight. Posted because you have to watch/listen to Heath Ledger's Joker and think to yourself: "...the hell just happened?!" o_O *twitch*

I give the movie 4 out of 5 stars.

GREAT movie. Like 4 9/10 out of 5 stars. ;)

Hm, I'm slightly relieved. I would have expected it to be more.

Finally, if any of my friends out there are having a crappy day and need a little glee? Click here, and I promise you'll be squeeing. (Warning: many pictures may cause the internetz to explode) :)

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. ♥
