Sunday Night is all right for watching...

So it's Sunday night in G-vegas and since I'm exhausted from being a social butterfly over the holiday, I decided to do the TV marathon. This time in the form of the Tudors...

While watching, I was obviously talking to David on good 'ole ichat, and here is our convo:

L: My Goal tonight--finish the second season of the Tudors
D: How many episodes do you have to go?
L: I think somewhere between 6-8
L: Ambitious? Yes.
L: I wonder if anyone has made a You Tube video montage of the Tudors while "Womanizer" was playing

(ED NOTE: 3 minutes later, after a quick youtube search)
L: Apparently 'yes' is the answer to that question:

And that conversation leads to this viddy:

Love, Indubitably

Steve and I just finished watching "Love, Actually," my favorite Christmas movie and a guaranteed tear jerker for me. I lose it and start bawling at least four times whenever I watch it. The only movie I can think that make me cry more is "Lilo & Stitch." Don't judge me!

In case you hadn't heard... Fox is working on a new pilot, a dramedy about four single gal pals who live in New York City. The catch is that they're werewolves. The name of the series: Bitches. That sound you just heard was the end of civilization.

On the upside this is bound to be a huge hit with furries.

Ok, so perhaps I watch too much televison. Well, I definitely watch too much television, but that doesn’t mean I deserve to be bombarded with Billy Mays infomercials every commercial break. I mean, is there anything this guy doesn’t sell? I looked him up on You Tube, and there were no less than 12 different products he has endorsed with his trademark obnoxiousness, and his wikipedia page says he’s endorsed 55 products. FIFTY FIVE. One of these products is insurance. No joke.

My mom offhandedly advocated his murder once, I don’t remember the actual quote, but she definitely wished death on him. Personally I prefer Vince from the Sham-wow commercial—he’s just awesome.

If you aren’t familiar with this guy, I’ve added some videos after the jump, including Vince from Sham-wow. I wonder if Pop Cultured gets any $$ for posting these videos? David, do you know?

My roommate actually bought this once. It did not work very well.

And here’s Vince—I just LOVE this guy and he loves the Germans.

I didn't watch this last night or anything...

An all new Muppet special, as you can imagine, it was quite an exciting night for Laura!!

The film co-starred the guy that played the original Tom Collins in RENT, Jenna from 30rock, Uma Thurman, Nathan Lane, Whoopie G, and Mayor Bloomberger. The plot revolved around the Muppets (more specifically Kermie, Gonzo, Pepe the King Prawn, Rizzo the Rat and Fozzie Bear) getting Letters to Santa before Christmas. The music, and frankly, the plot, left something to be desired, but sadly Jim Henson is no longer with us--and they can't all be winners.

SNL Recap: John Malkovich

This week's SNL was great, Amy Poehler returned and John Malkovich did a fantastic job as host. Per usual, Hulu left out a few of the really great sketches, but with any luck they'll post them later, (keep your fingers crossed for J'accuzzi). My favorites from last night's SNL:

'Twas the night before Christmas

"When I was a child, we used to suck on pennies...and it was a delight"

More after the jump


Virginia Horsen's Pony Express

I love this character.

Boy George explains himself. Don't touch his computer.

Our President Elect plays it cooooool...

Maybe we're too obsessed with Disney Fowl...

So having 2 Scrooge McDuck videos is a little much, and it does seem like our blog features either something from Ducktales The Muppets, or Full House every other day, but my motto is, "write what you know." Or, in our case, post videos of things that you know.

ANYWAY, this was in the related videos section of the previously posted video on YouTube, and I couldn't resist. It's very educational, and could maybe we could learn something from Scrooge in these tough economic times.

P.S. The voice of Scrooge McDuck in this video is the voice of Jock the Scottie in the movie Lady and the Tramp.

Repo! The Genetic Opera at the Angelika

So we saw the 1:30 showing of Repo! The Genetic Opera this afternoon at the Angelika and it was every bit the hot mess I was hoping for. It's showing right now in LA, Austin, New York, Las Vegas, and San Francisco. It'll be in theaters in Toronto on November 21. If you like rock operas, gore, hating Paris Hilton, Anthony Stewart Head, staring at a screen with incredulity or torturing friends who don't enjoy any of those things... grab a friend and GO NOW! If you aren't lucky enough to live in one of those few cities, where it's showing on a combined 8 screens, the DVD is coming out January 20th!

We, in fact, do love Duck Tales.

David and I have been getting a lot of flack recently for our "slight" to the Duck Tales Theme song. In all honesty, we forgot to place it on the original list--the only reason it got added was because I couldn't find an acceptable version of the SNL intro. Glad I got that off my chest. Right now I'm sitting in the Charlotte airport waiting for my 1:40 take off and I'm trying to think of a way to appease the Duck Tales Gods (and Girl Woodie and Tug). All I came up with was sharing the wikipedia synopsis.

From Wikipedia:

The show features the adventures of Scrooge and his nephews. The nephews, who were originally living with their uncle Donald, are left in Scrooge's care when the former joins the Navy.

Though Scrooge is the richest duck in the world, he constantly tries to find ways to increase his wealth. Many episodes involve protecting his wealth from villains who want to rob Scrooge of all his money. The prominent recurring antagonists in the show include the Beagle Boys and Magica De Spell who are always finding ways to rob and swindle Scrooge and his nephews. Scrooge's nemesis in the show is Flintheart Glomgold, who always tries to devise plans to dethrone Scrooge McDuck from his "Richest duck in the world" title.

What a fascinating show. As my dear friend Rebecca "Soul Glo" Morrell will most likely add, Donald Duck didn't care for pants, which leads me to ponder his decision to go into the Navy. Don't ask don't tell, indeed.

British Television is Just Cooler

So earlier today I read about a new TV series that simply BLOWS MY MIND... Dead Set, a horror mini-series that aired on Britain's E4 in October. Combining two of my favorite things ever, reality television and zombies, Dead Set aired over five consecutive nights, chronicling a zombie outbreak that strands housemates and production staff inside the Big Brother house during the taping of a fictional season. It can be viewed on Youtube here:

Dead Set - Episode 1 (Parts One, TwoThree, Four, and Five)

This came on the heels of me reading about a 1992 BBC program, Ghostwatch, which featured prominent broadcaster and journalist, Sir Michael Parkinson. This 90 minute fake docudrama was purported to be about a news team's investigation into a haunted house which goes horribly wrong, resulting in the live possession of the aforementioned journalist. Large segments of the viewing public responded poorly, with children suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and one teenager committing suicide. This led to the BBC enacting a decade long ban on the program. The program in it's entirety follows.

Epic Car Crash

This clip, from Final Destination 2, is without a doubt the most melodramatic and insane car crash ever put to film. When I worked at a movie theater we had this film and I would run into the theater just to see this sequence. Warning: viewing this sequence will make you REALLY freaked out whenever a logging truck is in front of you on the highway. It also makes me mildly paranoid about beverages in the car. Seriously a hot cup of coffee and a water bottle KILL PEOPLE in this scene.

Princess Clara approves!

Dollhouse Officially the New Firefly

Joss Whedon's new series Dollhouse has been plagued with production issues. The network decided the first Pilot's tone was off, so a new pilot was shot and the original was made the second episode, until it was decided that it should be scrapped altogether. Production shut down entirely for two and a half weeks so Whedon could work on script issues. The episodes have all been produced out of order. Once again production is being delayed so because of script issues with episode 7.

To top this all off FOX announced today that it will no longer be on Mondays with 24 but instead will be inheriting the Friday night slot of death. Dollhouse premieres Friday Feb 13 at 9pm. Feel free to pick up the Complete Series set with all the unaired episodes next fall.

Top 5 James Bond Themes

With the release of the ridiculously-named, but awesome-looking Quantum of Solace on Nov 14th getting closer and closer I thought I'd take a look back at some of my favorite James Bond themes. Quantum of Solace's theme by Jack White and Alicia Keys, an odd pair for sure, is "Another Way to Die." If you haven't heard it be sure to click on over and check it out. 

The World is Not Enough - Garbage
I feel like this Bond theme is seriously underrated. Shirley Manson's bizarre, singing, severed robot head makes the video worth a look all on it's own.

More naked ladies, guns, and music after the jump! 

Die Another Day - Madonna
The video for this makes the mistake of referencing Madonna's ridiculous cameo as a fencing instructor but it's a GREAT dance song. "Sigmund Freud.... analyse this... analyse this.... analyse this... this... this... this..." That bit of randomness along with the beat stopping abruptly so that Madonna can grunt make me happy. 

A View to a Kill - Duran Duran
This video is psychotically 80s. "Dance into the fiiiiyah!" I'm a firm believer that you can never go wrong with Duran Duran.

Live and Let Die - Paul McCartney 
You know you did used to say Live and Let Live....

Goldfinger - Shirley Bassey
Goldfinnnnga! I mean it's the classic bond theme. I count my mom's LP of this soundtrack as one of my most prized possesion.

This short from College Humor shows us what the future will look like when either Obama or McCain wins the election... according to their opponents.

When Is a Vote Not a Vote?

So I went to go vote today and was told by the volunteers at my polling station that my names weren't on the roll. This was my first election since I registered in New York State. Up until now I'd always voted absentee from my home state of South Carolina. I had checked repeatedly on the New York Board of Elections website to see if my registration had been added and I even attempted to call to talk to a representative there last week to see what the hold up was, as I'd sent in my registration weeks before the deadline. I spent 30 minutes on hold on my cellphone before I gave up.

I went to the polling station with an ungodly amount of ID on hand. I had my Driver's License, my passport, a recent utility bill with my name and address clearly on it. And because of the Board of Elections failure to post my registration to their rolls I had to cast a provisional ballot. Assuming the Board of Elections can eventually verify that they received my registration... it will be counted.

According to one commentator on The NY Times Cityroom blog:

 "People that registered on time, but at the last minute (myself), were not put into the system. There are approximately 200,000 people this happened to according to the NYC board of elections representative i spoke to. I called on friday to check on the status of my registration and was told that “due to the backlog, they wouldn’t have time to enter everyone in the system”. When i asked the extent of the problem, i was told 200,000 people. I don’t understand 1) how this could happen and 2) how the NYT could not think this warrented a story. I called the city room at the New York Times on Friday to report this problem. The editor(s) didn’t think it warranted a call back nor a story. In short, i was forced to fill out a provisional ballot."

It's amazingly disappointing that after taking the time to register in New York because it felt important to me to vote in person for this election, my vote may not count at all.  I feel like I did my civic duty today but sadly I don't feel like I voted.

Puppies vs. Kitties

Natalie Portman and Rashida Jones are at it again, encouraging people to vote... for kitties. Not to long ago, they were saying the answer to the global financial crisis was puppies. Which is it ladies?

Things That Exist - Theodore Rex

The other night, during an insomnia prompted channel surfing endeavor, I came across this gem of a film. According to wikipedia New Line dropped out of theatrical distribution on this bad boy after some negative reaction at screenings. Who could've predicted that? It thus became the most costly direct-to-video film ever at the time of it's Blockbuster debut. Without further ado... here's the movie where Whoopi Goldberg solves crimes with her dinosaur partner.
