Well, yeah, on my better days, I am Lloyd Dobler


I read this on IMDB and thought it was some interesting stuff, although not everything you hear on IMDB is true...

Cameron Crowe says he got Billy Crudup's line: "Well, yeah, on my better days, I am Russell from Stillwater," directly from John Cusack's response to a girl in a bar who asked, "Aren't you Lloyd Dobler?" (his character in Say Anything... (1989))

Yeah!


Serenity came out on DVD today. So I was so excited to get it I stopped at that evil empire that is WalMart in Troutdale, parked at the back of the parking lot because it was way full with all those fun holiday shoppers and walked through the notorious Troutdale wind and rain to get into the biggest and lamest and busiest WalMart only to find they were all out of Serenity in Widescreen. "Fuck this" I said to the cashier. Oh wait, actually what I really said was, "Hey, do you have any more copies of Serenity in Widescreen?" And he replied, too busy to even look at me while saying it "What I have is what is out there on the shelf." Well thanks for nothing. Thus endeth my time at WalMart, and I quickly ran to the car and drove to my favorite Fred Meyer out there on 39th and Hawthorne and of course they had Serenity in Widescreen as well as Gilmore Girls Season One for only $24.99. "What a steal!" I said to myself, as I accidentally knocked the movie the Notebook and a copy of Serenity Full Screen on the floor. Thankfully one of the nice Fred Meyer shoppers felt inclined to pick them up for me, cuz God knows I was just going to kick them away. Then in line I saw a youngish man who happened to be buying Serenity Widescreen too, and he was hiding something underneath it which I later discovered was The Beatles 1, assumedly a present for his assumed father who he told to go away when he came up to him in line. I proceeded to chit-chat with the youngish man about the rumored Easter egg on the Serenity DVD, probably totally impressing him with my knowledge. Then I bought my respective wares and went on my way. Good times.

A. He is cute, good looking... and has a nice backside.
2. He is funny and has a great sense of humor.
D. He is loyal and courageous and hero-ly.

The End.
P.S. Yes, yes, yes, i know he is a fictional character...

Seeing Serenity again in the theaters, for the third time. Hopefully I will see it again before it leaves the cheap theaters and make it an even four. Zing!

oh how i love the x files


SCULLY: Mulder, it is such a gorgeous day outside. Have you ever entertained the idea of trying to find life on this planet?

MULDER: I have seen the life on this planet, Scully, and that is exactly why I am looking elsewhere.

What's good for you this week?


X Files Season 6, Podcasts, especially The Transmission (all about Lost), NPR: Movies (all about movies), NPR: Pop Culture (only one episode so far but it was really good), TV Guide Talk (all about TV, awesome!), and the assorted Joss Whedony podcasts I listen to too, although I won't go into too much detail there. Also good- finishing finals (I did my final project on Firefly, yes yes, big dork, but it was cool so hopefully I will have that posted on here soon for all to enjoy), and coffee, yum. This is what's good for me.
When I typed in "it's good for you" on google pictures I found this pic about rum. I don't know if I agree though...
What's good for you this week?

Aeon Flux = Good


Saw Aeon Flux the movie yesterday. It ruled. Weird, but not as weird as the cartoon. Charlize Theron was good. I knew I was going to like it, but dang, I really liked it! It was good. Go see it.

i used to love you, but now i don't


this album is good. in fact, there is not a bad song on here, which in my opinion is a rare thing. weezer, you used to be oh so good. what happened?

a quick little note to the man who stole my car

Dear Sir,
Thank you for stealing my car. Again. I'm assuming it was also you who stole it in July and in January. It has been so much fun waiting around for the police to find it. Boy, and the paying for towing to a secure location! That's been fun too, because we all know I'm just rolling in the dough, that's why I drive such a sweet car. The '86 Toyota Camry might not seem like much to some people, but you sure seem to love it. I hope you enjoy the pack of American spirits I left for you, I know there were only four in there, but I'm sure you appreciate it. Sorry about not leaving the face on my CD player, but I'm sure you will steal it anyways, because, hey, why not. Enjoy the box of organic cereal that was left on the back seat and I hope the cops catch you this time.
Sincerely,
C. "Please Steal My Car Cuz I Love It"

You know what I like?


Elvis. The song "If I Can Dream" can like, rescue kittens from burning houses and cure disease, it's that good. Check it out.

Who do YOU have a crush on?

So I'm bored, watching Firefly and surfing the internet super highways, hanging out on myspace, and I come across this bulletin that someone on my friend list posted, and its all, oh go here type in your crush and find out if you're compatible. I'm bored so I'm like, ok, funny, this will be like one of those things that has to do with the number of letters in your name or something, but not even, its just some lame prank to get you to type in your crush and then they e-mail it to the person who sent you there. Yup, I was duped. Lame, I mean, it's not like I really care because what the fuck, are we in grade school, you know who I have a crush on? But its just one of those things where you are like, what the fuck, did I really fall for that? I'm lame. I wish I had invented it. This is the kind of this you could really use in middle school to ruin peoples lives with. Ha ha. As for now, long past middle school, I will just be content feeling stupid for actually being bored enough to click on this link and actually typing in the name of someone I have a "crush" on.
Shaking head in shame.

You know what's good?


LOST.
You know what's not good, there isn't going to be a new episode until January!! WTF! I guess I'm going to have to kill the time by catching up on another good show which is on at the same time, 9pm wednesdays, Veronica Mars. Anyone happen to have any episodes from this season recorded? Anyways last night's Lost episode was pretty much awesome. I was never a big Kate person, I was more all about Charlie, you know, cuz I dig the whole cute rock star thing. BUT, this episode made me really apreciate Kate, getting her whole motivations and all, and dang! Anyways I really like Anna Lucia, I know most people don't because she shot Shannon and all, but I dig her. She can hold her own and thats cool. And she didn't MEAN to shoot Shannon, it was an accident. Anyways I gotta go watch Firefly. My roommate has never seen the Pilot. Weirdo!
