The Walking Dead

This is an actual, factual, honest-to-God, T-Vee series.



Good job, AMC!

Mashupville

There are a few Cee-Lo/movie mashups already on Youtube (including Dirty Dancing, Reservoir Dogs, Say Anything and Shawshank Remdemption), but my fav of the bunch so far is this one from Napoleon Dynamite. While I've only seen the film once, the following clip still holds some special memories. Bravo and well-done.

Cee-Lo Sings Swears

The following video is merely a song, with lyrics shown so that you may sing along. The lyrics are very NSFW, unless you work in an office where the f-bomb gets dropped every few seconds. Proceed with caution, but damn that's a catchy track. Thanks, Cee-Lo.



It took me a couple of tries to find a legit copy. (YouTube loves pulling videos I embed for some reason.) So if it doesn't play, I beg, I plead: search it out.

Dream Movies


Dreamt just as I was waking up this morning about reading a list of the most anticipated Sci-Fi movies of all time. (Yes, I was reading Entertainment Weekly in my dream. That's got to be geeky.) Number 1 was an upcoming film by James Cameron called The Cell III, which was not only in 3D, but would have live action actors in a completely CG environment. The movie was a remake of a small European thriller and was set to star Brad Pitt, Hugh Jackman, and Nicole Kidman. (Why the third installment to a film series with a direct to video sequel, I'm not sure. The writeup didn't even mention the original starring Jennifer Lopez, only the European film that was its source material.) Finally, the article finished with a blurb, calling the film "a dark, psychological take on Jackass."

I want to go to this movie.

The Real Housewives of St. Louis

Not Pictured: Brandon Phillips hating a team with little birds on their uniforms. Also, Johnny Cueto kicking little bitches.
 
Cincinnati Red Brandon Phillips, on his feelings towards the St. Louis Cardinals:
"I’d play against these guys with one leg. We have to beat these guys. I hate the Cardinals. All they do is bitch and moan about everything, all of them, they’re little bitches, all of ‘em.....I really hate the Cardinals. Compared to the Cardinals, I love the Chicago Cubs. Let me make this clear: I hate the Cardinals."
Amen to that, brother. I'm not sure I can exactly pinpoint the day I become a Cardinals hater, but it must have coalesced around the 2006 postseason. Man, that was one terrible team that somehow won a World Series on the back a "hitter" with a career OPS+ of 88. And Tony LaRussa? Scary. Old. Man.

Charlyne Yi - Cannot

Having not seen Paper Heart, all I know of Charlyne Yi is from her YouTube channel (and her hilarious scenes in Knocked Up). So here is one of her most recent songs, which I thought you should see. You might hate it. But hopefully you won't. Because then I would have to take you to friend divorce court. Because I want the dog and the original edition of Settlers of Catan. Pfffft.

Jammy Jams


Just listened to this one six or seven times in a row while flipping through my g-reader. "Mahgeetah" was one of the first MMJ songs I remember hearing, and even though I'm not their biggest fan these days, I have to admit this track kicks serious a-words. As in, ass.

By the by, I didn't actually watch the video. Not once. I'm sure it's a fine live video job thingee. But come one, come all. Either crank up the amp or grab your headphones, because this one needs to be heard at an incredible volume of sound. But seriously. Skip the video.We've seen enough southern hippies playing guitars to last a lifetime.

Dinosaurs Lie To Get What They Want!

How do we get back at astronomers for taking away Pluto?

If this is true, then what else is untrue?

Morph-osaurs: How shape-shifting dinosaurs deceived us (NewScientist.com)
Dinosaurs were shape-shifters. Their skulls underwent extreme changes throughout their lives, growing larger, sprouting horns then reabsorbing them, and changing shape so radically that different stages look to us like different species.

This discovery comes from a study of the iconic dinosaur triceratops and its close relative torosaurus. Their skulls are markedly different but are actually from the very same species, argue John Scannella and Jack Horner at the Museum of the Rockies in Bozeman, Montana.

....

[Mark] Goodwin says the recent work is convincing and will mark a major shift in the field: palaeontologists must now factor in extreme changes in skull shape or risk misunderstanding evolutionary relationships and overestimating dinosaur diversity. Ignore physical development in dinosaur palaeontology "at your peril", he warns.

This is why science is so awesome, and so frustrating, all at the same time. It's also why I need a personal scientist on call 24/7 for followup questions and independent verification of purported facts.

Yes, please.

I would like one of these to go. Thank you.
