But Then Gawker Said It For Me...

I know I said I didn't want to get into the whole Terry Schiavo thing but this is about what I was thinking:

CNN: A Longer Answer to a QuickVote

(I was just going to republish the Gawker post here but blogger no longer offers direct image hosting because they are trying really hard {and succeeding!} at pissing me off)

Mitch Hedberg

So yeah, Terry Schiavo died today. I'm sorry for her family but am hoping this story goes away in a day. I'm sickened by the continued abuse of her name & image for political gain. But I don't want to get into this because it's makes my head want to EXPLODE.

I'd rather take some time to remember Mitch Hedberg, an extremely talented comedian who died last night. Here's his Comedy Central bio. He was fucking hilarious and I always enjoyed when he was on Letterman & Comedy Central & Howard Stern. I have been trying to see him live for the last couple years but always managed to check his club dates the week after he was in NEO...

The Chocolate MPire

OK, first off, blogger is a pain in the ass lately... but who cares because dark chocolate M&M's are making their debut this weekend. And there's a fun M&M/Star Wars trailer to announce it. As a Star Wars fan, I should maybe be appalled by this but there's so much more to dislike George Lucas for these days. And somehow, the fact that there are going to be dark chocolate M&M's in the world wins out. And also, M&M R2D2 is so f'in cute.

When Supermodels Attack!

I was so hoping this would happen... I saw a E! True Hollywood Story the other day about Janice Dickenson, "first" supermodel and ass-crazy judge on America's Next Top Model. And now Television without Pity has recapped it. Woo-hoo! Meanwhile, if you missed last night's episode (like I did), you can get your Janice quota & a (maybe) flesh-eating disease to boot when they rerun it on Friday.

Bewitched, Bewitched...

I just watched the trailer for Bewitched and I'm a bit confused. I thought it was going to be a movie based on the TV show... instead it's a movie about a movie based on the TV show. I can't decide how I feel about that. Still, it's got Will Ferrell in it and he looks hilarious as usual. Nicole Kidman looks better here than in The Stepford Wives except she needs to lay off the botox or eyebrow plucking or whatever is making her forehead look like that. Maybe I'll see it. Meanwhile, I know you've all been wondering what the words to the Bewitched theme song are, so here you go:

Bewitched, Bewitched,
You've got me in your spell.
Bewitched, Bewitched,
You know your craft so well.
Before I knew what I was doing,
I looked in your eyes.
That brand of woo you've been brewin',
Took me by surprise.

You witch, you witch,
One thing is for sure.
That stuff you pitch,
Just hasn't got a cure.
I never thought that I could be had,
But now I'm caught and I'm kinda glad to be Bewitched.

From here on Wednesday will be known as Project Wednesday in my world... this is the day (night actually) that I will be dedicating to my creative ventures. Arts, crafts, design... it's all fair game on Project Wednesday. Now tonight will probably just be kinda a lame PW because I need to gather all my supplies and decide where to start. But I'm hoping on getting some sketching practice in. I also want to create a list of all the projects I'd like to do... I bought a ton of practice fabric at Goodwill this weekend so there will definitely be some sewing projects soon.

In other news, I think I might be a mini geek because I just ordered the "premium" slipcase for the LOTR extended DVD editions... I didn't really think I'd like LOTR that much. But they're really good movies. Last week I watched the extended edition of Return of the King and didn't even realize that it was over 4 hours long. Weird. I have to remember to send in the rebate for Return of the King before the end of the month.

I need to clean my desk off, it's getting super dusty.

Starbucks has a new coffee liqueur that I will be trying soon (maybe even tonight)... I grabbed a mini bottle at the grocery the other day. The website wants to know: how will it inspire you? Well, Starbucks... my guess is it'll inspire me to drink more. Also: Please note: the caffeine in this liqueur does not counteract the effects of alcohol. Heh. I'm coveting the square martini glass featured in the mochatini recipe... pretty.

Dream Job

OK, maybe it's not my dream job but getting paid to watch The Dukes of Hazzard would still be dreamy... oh, until I got to the Coy & Vance season. But for $100,000 I'd suffer. And I'm gonna have to seriously consider going to Dukesfest 2005...

Best. Episode. Ever.

Last night's episode of Lost was my favorite since the Locke episode. I wonder how many people are going to play Hurley's numbers in the lottery this weekend... so many I'm sure. Now Lost is on hiatus for a month or so, so I'm free to watch America's Next Top Model on Wednesdays. Then it's all about who's gonna die on the season finale (of Lost not ANTM). The rumor is that it's one of the boys... I'd vote Boone or Walt off the island personally... just cause they annoy me. I'll be really pissed if it's Charlie, Locke, Hurley or Sayid. Any other character would only piss me off slightly.

The Benefits of The O.C.

I knew there must be some benefit to sticking with The O.C. during it's sophomore slump and now I've found it:

Star Wars trailer to premiere during OC

So far, this Star Wars movie is the only movie I'm really excited about seeing this year. Now, let's get back to The O.C.:

Note to writers... Mischa Barton still can't act and still isn't hot. This pseudo lesbian storyline you've got her in couldn't be less thrilling. Also, Ryan hasn't taken off his shirt all season... what gives? Thanks for getting rid of Lindsay, DJ & the crypt keeper, Kim Delaney. You can keep Zack & Alex. Also, more Julie. And maybe a little less meta... but I did love the Laguna Beach nod last week. Oh, and why don't these kids go to school anymore?
