Rocket Pictures hopes to make the first Jane Austen adaptation to which men will drag their girlfriends. Will Clark is set to direct "Pride and Predator," which veers from the traditional period costume drama when an alien crash lands and begins to butcher the mannered protags, who suddenly have more than marriage and inheritance to worry about. - Source.

You know what's really funny about my having posted 3 times today? The fact that I sternly told myself this morning that I was not to log onto LJ during work today.

The talk radio station I listen to on the way to work has dumped Imus In The Morning for some guy named Mancow/Madcow. I hate when radio stations just change programming with no warning or explanation. (See same radio station abruptly going from Mike & Mike In The Morning to Imus, and/or local r&b station dumping the Tom Joyner morning show for the Steve Harvey morning show and/or the lame local top 40 station going from Jack and Karen in the morning to just Karen in the morning.) Would it kill them to put a blurb on their site, or something?

I scanned the dial, and everything else on the radio while I'm driving to work sucks. I'd listen to NPR's Morning Edition, but since our alarm goes off in the morning to NPR's Morning Edition, I'd just end up hearing the same stories over again.

I am MOST displeased.

In other news that is less of the suck, after years of price hikes, is apparently LOWERING its package prices by $10 for the 2009 season. Don't spend it all at once.

The Miley Cyrus/Hannah Montana version of the Little Mermaid's Part of Your World? is terrible. TERRIBLE. There is nothing about it that does not exude wrongness. It's so bad I couldn't even bring myself to upload it so you could listen and judge for yourself.

She's a cute little thing and I don't mind what I've seen of her show, but So. Bad.
What's up, f-list? I'm supposedly working a half day before I head home to stalk the Marlins. And by Marlins, I mean Mike Jacobs, WHO HAD BEST BE DHING THIS SERIES. I'm doing a very bad job of the whole "working" part of it.

My kingdom for mp3s of Jennifer Lopez's Waiting For Tonight (english or spanish version would be fine) and some Enrique Iglesias? I'm randomly in the mood. I'm looking for his cover of Sad Eyes, Bailamos, Be With You, Rhythm Divine... Come on, people. I know I'm not the only one who sprung for that cd.

My brother tells me that Peter Parker revealed his identity to the world at large in compliance with some crazy superhero registration act and that Storm is marrying Black Panther. BANANAS, f-list mio. Bananas!

You know that Gatorade commercial that re-imagines how some moments in sports might have otherwise gone down? And one of them is the out at home from the 2001 ALDS? Every time I see that commercial, Jeremy Giambi being called safe at home completely. weirds. me. out. Feel like someone's tempting the wrath of the whatever from high atop the thing.

Can't sleep. I should probably watch last week's 24. But...I'm kinda scared to >.>

Hugh Jackman was on Leno the other night, and they showed a clip from X-3. ([Bad username or site: trailer_spot / @] has it in his latest post). Um, I thought it was kind of bad. BUT I AM UNDETERED. Also, I got the sense some of the SFX weren't finished yet, which is kind of weird this late in the game, but maybe it was a deliberate directorial choice.

Also, do you have to, you know, have any appreciation of football to enjoy Friday Night Lights? 'Cause sometimes I'm vaguely tempted to check that movie out. Mostly 'cause I like the soundtrack. But then I'm like "eh, I don't really care about football." I've enjoyed some 'football' movies well enough - Necessary Roughness, Remember The Titans, The Replacements - but those weren't really about football, like, at all. FNL seems like it might actually be more about football and the football mentality and small town America, and a dozen other things I don't really care about. Thoughts?
Dunkin Donuts discontinued the Orange-Mango Coolatta. I went to order it today, as I was gearing up for a busy day of studiously not working on my Note. I went to order and the guy goes, "The mango coolatta's discontinued. It's the Tropicana Coolatta now."

Me: "Whaa?"

"Oh, it's the same thing," he assures me. "Just a different name."

Only, you know what? It's not the same thing, my friends. It's way more orange-y and not at all mango-y. I am frustrated at every turn.


Favorite song from an animated Disney film? I confess to way over-identifying with Reflection when I was in high school, but if I had to pick one and only one? Probably Baloo's The Bear Necessities.

ETA: I think it probably doesn't count, but I also very much like He Lives In You. It's on the soundtrack to The Lion King II: Simba's Pride, but I didn't really become a fan of it until I was listening to the soundtrack for the Broadway version of The Lion King, where it also appears. I tend to associate it more with the Broadway show than the animated sequel.

My eyes.

Did they make the rookies sing? See, I can get with making rookies sing. Anyway, somewhere, RuPaul cries.

In less distressing news: confirmed word that Brad Whitford has signed on to Sorkin's new show. ^_^

ETA: LOL, they did make their rookies sing. That's funny.
San Francisco Giants rookie Brian Wilson portrays musician Billy Idol while participating in a rookie hazing spoof of the hit television show American Idol prior to a Major League Baseball spring training workout, Tuesday, Feb. 28, 2006, in Scottsdale, Ariz. )

Dude, your name is BRIAN WILSON. There was a whole joke there.
These will probably all show up in the Yahoo gallery in the next hour or so, but what the hell.

B-Rob's biceps: Holy Hannah, people. I mean, I've seen the Phoenix workout pics and all...but gee whiz.

Kevin Millar really looks 10 kinds of wrong in orange and black.

ETA: if anyone wants the 2004 or 2005 A's commercials, I uploaded them for someone else earlier today. If you're not familiar with SS, it's the same concept as YSI. The download link appears underneath the ads in the center of the screen.

The eight 2005 commercials: zip file, 10mbs

The twelve 2004 commercials: zip file, 16mbs

1. I cannot find my glasses.

2. So I can't tell if it is honest to God fucking SNOWING outside, or if my eyes deceive me. Because seriously. I see snow. And it appears to be sticking. What the fucking fuck. It was like 66 degrees out yesterday.

If this planet goes to pot before the All Star break, I shall be very cross.
Flipping stations over breakfast this morning and what should I stumble upon but a show on the WB called Loonatics Unleashed. Um, did y'all know about this? How could no one tell me? I CAME UPON IT WITH NO WARNING. And there was scarrage.

Let me get this straight. Setting aside Taz and that chick who I'm guessing is Lola Bunny revisted. Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner...and Bugs and Daffy...are superheroes? And they defend Acmetropolis....TOGETHER? That's just...wrong. They hate each other. They're mortal enemies. Wile E. and Road Runner aren't boys. They don't hang. Wile E. wants Runner to not be alive anymore. Daffy can't stand Bugs. These are fundamental operative principles of the universe. So I say again. What the fuck.

What, I'm supposed to be okay with it because they changed the names and futzed with their look?

Whatever. I just feel betrayed, kids. Like, deep in my heart, I thought it was understood that there are things you just don't fuck with. The classic Looney Toons crew being one of them. I mean, Tiny Toons was one thing. But this. It's just wrong. **sulks**

And then on top of that, I got my resurrected Three Witches and it smells like ick. I think [Bad username or site: joseybird / @] said that she left hers open overnight and in the morning it smelled just like her old bottle, so cross your fingers for me.

In less soul destroying news, last night's BSG? I have just one thing to say: I CHEERED. Hu-freakin'-zzah and all that jazz.
+ There seem to be a couple big fans on my f-list, so I figured I'd ask... In my time, I've heard maybe three Decemberists songs in their entirety. I didn't care for The Soldiering Life but I really, really like Red Right Ankle and Here I Dreamt I Was An Architect. So, as much as that tells you anything, can you rec me some other songs by them to check out?

+ I can't find my cellphone charger, so I haven't turned it on in ages, but I managed to get it working long enough yesterday to check messages, and besides a couple messages from my parents, there were two messages from my friend Liz.

Message 1: Hello! I'm just calling to wish you a happy holiday! I thought it would be better if I called than sending you an e-card written in Arabic that I didn't understand. So I hope that you are celebrating by reading some nice sports porn or some such thing....

Message 2: See once you get me started calling, it's really hard to get me to stop. It's Liz, it is...Friday night? Whatever. I'm all by myself at the Arundel Mills Muvico Egyptian whatever? The Jillian's movie theatre. I'm going to see Capote by myself. I'm figuring I'm probably gonna be the only one in the theatre. ...You know how at the Muvico you buy your ticket and there's the little space where you walk and then you go to the ushers? So, right above the door to get into the place where they take your ticket, is a huge poster for The Gay Cowboy Movie. And I really - it warms my heart and I wanted to tell somebody about it and I figured that you would appreciate it, so I'm telling you. I hope that it warms your heart as much as it warms mine. I don't know if it's because Jarhead is opening this weekend so they want to get the Jake Gyllenhaal crowd? But anyway, prime advertising position. And there is a gigantic floor display for RENT right behind it....

Liz, I know I don't tell you near enough, but I love you a million Swedish fish ^_~

+ And speaking of messages from my friends, I came back from being away from my comp, to find [Bad username or site: johnnybvo / @] gripping about having been scarred for life when he stumbled across Duck Tales slash. (Don't ask me, I have no idea.) The content of which he felt the need to SHARE WITH ME and so I am now scarred for life. Because, clearly, that's what friends are for :-P

+ Tackling big projects on my plate has proven completely and totally unpossible. Going with clearing off the little stuff (cleaning my room, doing laundry, dropping off mail) and then maybe, MAYBE I'll be in the right place to get some honest work done.
Um, what the hell?

Commissioner's Office may not let Astros close stadium roof - In yet another postseason series where umpires' calls have been debated, the roof was just as hot a topic. The Astros were 36-17 at home when it was closed during the regular season, 15-11 when it was rolled back and 2-0 in games that began indoors and finished in fresh air.

During the regular season, the Astros pick their environment. But during the postseason, the commissioner's office makes that call.

You have got to be kidding me. [Bad username or site: catslash / @] was just talking about what a huge difference it makes, and Lord knows it drove me crazy how loud Minute Maid got during the NLCS -- and I was just watching on TV. I'm finding it pretty lame of MLB to step in and futz with this. What Roy O said: there's a reason it's called home-field advantage.

ETA: Am now registered for Spring classes. The 3Ls grabbed all the really interesting ones; the bastards >.>

E2: As much as Cho annoyed me ("Ugh, shut up, McMournypants!"), I really like the dress they've chosen for her for the Yule Ball. And images like this one and this one are quickly helping me get into Ron's shaggy do :-P And it should go without saying, but I love me Seamus in uniform. It's the tie thing. Gets me every time. He should hurry up and be legal so I can stop feeling like a complete perv.

Okay, so you know what would be cool? It would be cool if the MTA did not shut down the entire subway system on those of us with a Friday afternoon commute. And what's more? It would be cool if they would FUCKING ANSWER THE PHONE WHEN YOU CALL INSTEAD OF TELLING YOU TO DIRECT ALL QUESTIONS TO STATION ATTENDENTS WHEN THE STATION ATTENDENTS ALL LOCKED UP AND GOT THE HELL OUT OF DODGE HOURS AGO. And yeah, those "bus bridges" that they're allegedly running from station to station? Where exactly are those picking people up? Are they Knight buses, invisible to my fucking muggle eyes?

Thank goodness for my office manager and the fact that he lives one suburb over from me or I would be HEATED.
