First, I want it noted that I'm posting before 8:00 pm. This is important because tonight is the first time I've been home from work before 7:00 pm in a looooong time. I told Dave that I wanted this noted on my performance evaluation. Oh, anyone who reads this probably knows who Dave is 'cuz there's only a handful of you, but juuuust in case you don't, let me introduce you...
Yeah you've seen this picture a million times (and it's fairly old - He's all white-faced now), but it's my favorite.
I don't have anything earth-shattering to share today, so I thought I'd tell you about one of my favorite TV shows - Fringe. Anybody watch it? I wasn't a watcher of X Files, but I'm told it's sort of X Files Next Generation. It's about a division of the FBI that investigates weird "events" that involve fringe science (alternate universes, time travel, etc.). J.J. Abrams created it, so right there you know it's good (except I find his current "Undercovers" to be a dud). Each episode has something delightfully disgusting in it - like removing someone's brain or people spontaneously combusting...I don't like gory movies, but I love this show. It doesn't hurt that Pacey is on it (Joshua Jackson...I wasn't a big Dawson's Creek fan, but...he's kinda sexy as a grown up) and the main character, Olivia (Anna Torv) looks like a grown up version of my niece.
She's only 14, but I could totally see her kicking some other-worldly criminal butt someday.
So there you go, it's on Fox Thursday at 9:00. DVR it and see what you think.
Oh, almost forgot the answers from yesterday are:
The Big Lebowski
Shakespeare in Love
Pirates of the Caribbean
National Lampoon's Animal House (filmed on the U of O campus, thankyouverymuch)
Scrooged (one of my favorite holiday movies)
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (the original, BEST version)
