Captain Kangaroo was always awesome.

Friday Night Lights on NBC was an awesome show, but I don’t know what the hell happened to it. I suppose I could google it and find out, and maybe I’ll do that after I’m done posting this, but whatever.
I’ve been watching this show. It’s about vampires in Louisiana. The show treats vampires as though they are another race of people, they’re fighting for “vampire rights” and stuff like that. I only started watching it because Anna Paquin is hot. Unfortunately, on the show she plays the character of Sookie Stackhouse, and sheÂ is a vampire-lover. Oh, and she can “hear” whatever someone is thinking (except for vampires).
As part of the plot, True Blood is the name of a Japanese scientist’s invention of synthetic blood, which has allowed vampires have progressed from legendary monsters to fellow citizens overnight because they no longer have to suck human blood. And while humans have been safely removed from the vampire menu, many remain apprehensive about these creatures “coming out of the coffin.”
Yeah, I would too.
Religious leaders and government officials around the world have chosen their sides, but in the small town of Bon Temps, Louisiana the jury is still out.
Anyway, I’m about to go watch tonights episode now, I recorded it earlier. Also, I’m going to go cut a piece of blueberry cream cheesecake first, because I’m hungry, and because blueberry cream cheesecake rules.
Awesome. I’m watching it now. Kari is seeing if the beer-goggles myth is true. I can tell you from experience, it is. However, Kari Byron is harsh when she’s buzzed. She says she’s going to get drunker though, so we’ll see. A commercial is on right now.
Ok, I watched it. I don’t entirely agree with their testing methods. They started with a group of 30 pictures of girls/guys and judged them from 1-10 on their attractiveness, however, they used a different group of 30 for each subsequent test. Therefore, it’s possible there were more people in the 2nd or 3rd group that they found to be attractive. I don’t know if I’m explaining it right, but anyway, I already knew that getting drunk makes you do fugly chicks sometimes.
Also, it was cool watching Kari Byron get drunk.
I got The Happening DVD in the mail, and was immediately looking forward to watching it. I’ve been a fan of most of M. Night Shyamalan’s films, and figured this one would be no different. Right now, I’m not real sure what I think of it. I know I enjoyed watching the movie while I was watching it, so that’s probably all that matters. Plus Zooey Deschanel was in it, so that is awesome. I’m definitely still a fan of Shyamalan’s movies, and will continue to see whatever movies he makes. This movie was promoted as being the “first R-Rated film” from M. Night Shyamalan.
In this thriller from M. Night Shyamalan, a deadly airborne virus threatens to wipe out the northeastern United States. Fleeing from contaminated cities into the remote countryside, science teacher Elliott Moore (Mark Wahlberg) and his wife, Alma (Zooey Deschanel), fight to survive and discover the truth: is it terrorism, the accidental release of some toxic military bio weapon, or something even more terrifying? John Leguizamo and Betty Buckley co-star.
Heckler is a good comedy documentary from Jamie Kennedy, and featuring many of the top comedians and filmmakers giving their opinion on hecklers. Some of the hecklers are even interviewed. The movies covers several topics, obviously hecklers, but also movie critics and online bloggers.
I guess I seem to fit into the “critics” or “online blogger” categories, as I am critical of things I hate…but do comedians really have any room to talk about critics? Most of them have made a career out of “making fun” or certain topics or people. Sure, hecklers, in many cases, deserve to be beaten over the head with a stick, but heckling is a lot different than a movie critic or some blogger giving their opinion. A heckler sits in an audience and interrupts a performance by yelling out criticism, whereas I don’t interrupt anyones performance on my blog, I simply call them stupid or horrible, and move on.
Anyway, it was an interesting film, and you should add it to your Netflix queue when you get a chance. +1 for Deep Roy (the Oompa Loompa from the newest Willie Wonka movie).
Nearly anyone who performs in public on a regular basis is familiar with the notion of the audience member who makes their opinions loudly and clearly known during the show, and like most comedians Jamie Kennedy has dealt with his fair share of hecklers over the course of his career. However, when Kennedy moved from stand-up comic to actor, he encountered a new breed of heckler — the on-line film critic who posts angry rants on the internet, taking Kennedy to task for nearly every aspect of such critically drubbed movies as Son Of The Mask and Malibu’s Most Wanted. Kennedy teamed up with director Michael Addis to make the documentary Heckler, which explores the increasingly combative relationship between artists and their audience. Heckler features interviews with a number of comics and musicians discussing their experiences with loud-mouthed spectators (including Bill Maher, David Cross, Louie Anderson, Rob Zombie, Joe Rogan and David Allen Grier), but Kennedy goes a step further, confronting a number of the writers who’ve bad-mouthed his work and questioning their role in the creative process. Kennedy and Addis also talk with filmmaker Uwe Boll, who went so far as to challenge his critics to a boxing match. Heckler received its world premiere at the 2007 Tribeca Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide
This is karma coming back to bite OJ Simpson in the ass. If he gets life in prison, that would be nice, but I seriously doubt he’ll get such a sentence, although it is possible. OJ deserves whatever they give him and more, after brutally murdering his ex-wife Nicole Brown-Simpson and Ron Goldman and being acquitted of the crime. Kudos to the jury who convicted OJ Simpson on his latest crime spree. The conviction comes 13 years to the day after he was originally acquitted of murder.
O.J. Simpson guilty of armed robbery, kidnapping
From Paul Vercammen
CNN Senior Producer
LAS VEGAS, Nevada (CNN) — Former gridiron great O.J. Simpson was found guilty Friday of all 12 counts in the armed robbery of two sports memorabilia dealers at a Las Vegas, Nevada, casino hotel last year.
Simpson, 61, and his co-defendant Clarence “C.J.” Stewart, 54, were charged with a dozen offenses stemming from the alleged sports memorabilia heist. Stewart was also found guilty of the same charges as Simpson.
Simpson sat quietly and showed little emotion at the defense table as courtroom clerk Sandra Jeter read the verdicts.
I purposely didn’t put a “?” question mark on the title. I don’t know why.
There’s several good shows coming on TV tonight. I won’t be home until near 10pm, so I will have to record a few to watch later.
The season finale of America’s Got Talent comes on at 9pm…I haven’t really been watching this show very much, but will probably tune in to see who wins anyway. The Tapout show comes on at 9 & 10pm, and as a fan of mixed martial arts, I usually watch it.
However, it appears there is a 2-hour block of ALF coming on WGN, starting at 8pm Eastern Time. I might have to record these, Alf always was awesome.
The Discovery Channel has some show called The Ten Commandments Of The Mafia. I will see that.
I’ll watch Ghost Hunters, because my TV guide says they will be in Florida. I’ll probably end up watching Destination Truth again as well, but maybe not.
I just looked at MTV’s schedule for 10pm, they have some show called Man and Wife. The description says “members of the hip-hop community discuss marriage.” ROFL. I love how MTV always goes to members of the “hip-hop community” for advice and discussion. America’s kids are getting great advice.
