Dear Pop Starlet,

Tell your people to hold up on their promises. We were told we'd get Krispy Kremes in exchange for politely listening to you; those are obviously Dunkin Donuts. There may be a riot.

Kiss kiss,

My morning train ran incredibly late when I wanted to be at work early. My evening train ran perfectly on time, the one time I was late, despite it running perfectly late for the past, say, three weeks.

But none of that matters, because after work, I got this on DVD:

Also, a box of microwave popcorn. Eeeeeee.

EDIT: Oh fuck me, Little Mermaid THREE?! The second one didn't suck enough for you, Disney?! And the only preview you have for it is a "musical preview" that's not of an original song?

EDIT 2: Oh for crying out loud, CINDERELLA THREE?! So that time you fired all those animators, they were what, the only people with good ideas?

EDIT 3: I had forgotten how bad the animation quality was on this. Especially when compared to Beauty and the Beast, just a year later. I mean, it's not TERRIBLE, but it's like it was drawn as an especially special episode of The Gummi Bears.

EDIT 4: Oh God, I love "Poor Unfortunate Souls".

Cable network G4 has picked up the shared cable rights to Fox's veteran series Cops, distributed by Twentieth Television. G4 will share Cops with Court TV, tho we're talking about different episodes. G4 has picked up 160 episodes of Cops, which it will air 6x a day beginning in either December or January, including two daily episodes in primetime. According to Variety, G4 has signed a three year deal, at $100k per episode. G4 has beefed up its programming of syndicated series of late, with the acquisitions of Star Trek: The Next Generation, and off-net rights to The Man Show and Arrested Development.
What? No, really. What? Okay, you got The Man Show because since you're a video game/technology network, your demographics skews towards males. Fine. You got Star Trek, because despite putting down anime as for losers and nerds, sci-fi is awesome. Fine. You got Arrested Development because it's a critically acclaimed show and you want to boost your audience. Whatevs. But COPS? Seriously? Explain that one to me, please. You better not marathon that shit on the weekends when I watch X-Play.

All five episodes from season one of the MTV cult classic The State will be digitally remastered and available for purchase at the iTunes Store starting September 26 for $1.99 each. Originally airing in the 1990s and running for three seasons, The State was one of MTV's first sketch comedies targeting Generation X.
But will it be on DVD, you jackasses?

NOLA mayor criticizes NYC.

Upon being criticized for the delay in rebuilding New Orleans one year after Katrina, mayor Ray Nagin replied, "You guys in New York can't get a hole in the ground fixed, and it's five years later."

Because debate over how best to build a memorial/tourist destination is totally the same as rebuilding a devastated city and bringing back its residents and restarting the community. Seriously.

Man, because whenever I look at the state of feminism today, I always say, "Gosh, I just wish women could be more sexualized. And we need more mediocre female pop stars, especially those whose singles take the form of competing with other women and needing physical justification from men." Luckily we have the PCD to step up to the plate. Geez.

I was carrying two armfuls of tapes to the 8th floor from the 6th. I made it all the way to the last step, and then BAM! Tripped on the last step and everything went flying out of my hands. AWESOME.

Bush Vetos Stem Cell Bill

President Bush cast the first veto of his 5 1/2-year presidency today, saying legislation easing limits on federal funding for embryonic stem cell research "crosses a moral boundary" and is wrong.

"This bill would support the taking of innocent human life in the hope of finding medical benefits for others," Bush said at a White House event where he was surrounded by 18 families who "adopted" frozen embryos not used by other couples, and then used those leftover embryos to have children.

You know what I think is wrong? The number of children already adrift in the system that could've been "adopted" by these couples. Y'know, the ones put up for adoption by the proper sluts who didn't have abortions. The ones who are being bounced around by foster care. But I guess those aren't really YOUR children unless you squatted them out yourself.

"They remind us of what is lost when embryos are destroyed in the name of research. The remind us that we all begin our lives as a small collection of cells. And they remind us that in our zeal for new treatments and cures, America must never abandon our fundamental morals," Bush said.

Our fundamental morals like life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, and the right to be eavesdropped on. And don't forget the moral of separation of Church and State.

Said Bush: "As science brings us every closer to unlocking the secrets of human biology, it also offers temptations to manipulate human life and violate human dignity. Our conscience in history as a nation demand that we resist this temptation.

Except in wartime, and only then is it okay to manipulate human life and violate human dignity, due to extenuating circumstances.

The Senate voted 63-37 on Tuesday, four votes short of the two-thirds majority that would be needed to override a veto.

You bastards.

The Poll function wouldn't let me write as much as I wanted, so I pose this question to y'all in basic form:

What's worse?

1. This listing of pretty much every pairing imaginable in the HP universe, involving characters who have/will never meet, characters who have never appeared and were mentioned by name only, beastiality, incest, and silly pairing names.

2. This account posted by a non-child (agewise, anyway), ranting and raving that she had to wait a few more minutes for her non-special HBP book because she lost the costume contest to a child. Also, the fact that almost everyone who comments gives a resounding "Hear, hear!" and not a resounding "What fuck wrong you?"

And I started writing this just as [livejournal.com profile] prettykate came in and said, "Man, am I sick of hearing about Harry Potter on my friendslist."

Dear Night Shift Cleaning Crew,

I appreciate all you do. Really. I know there are plenty of people in the universe who look down on you and think that because you're around, they don't have to clean up after themselves. I apologize for those jerks.

That being said, please stop fucking cleaning up my desk. I'll tell you the same thing I used to tell my mother - it looks messy to you, but I understand where everything is. It doesn't help me for you to put all my VHS tapes in a stack, not when they're unlabeled and my only way to organize them is to spread them out over my desk. That picture you keep moving is SUPPOSED to be on its side. Anyone actually looking at the picture could tell you that it's not a vertically-shot photo. That's the part that makes me think you just have a vendetta against me and are trying to drive me loopy.

And if you are going to move around anything, how about throwing out those boxes at my desk that say "TRASH" on them?



Dear Konami,

I love the Dance Dance Revolution games and think more people should love them, too. In addition to being addictive, challenging, and above all, fun, they're a vital part of a workout for many sedentary, video-game-crazed kids such as myself. I try to get as many people as possible interested in the game. Therefore, I think I should get a commission or at least a nice check from y'all.

For example, last Friday night I was in Best Buy, and a woman was curious about purchasing the latest game for the Playstation 2, DDR Extreme. She wasn't sure what to buy, exactly, and the salesperson in the games department wasn't exactly helpful. I turned to her and let her know that it was a great game, even better with two official Konami-produced pads. I also explained that there were previous PS2 and PSX versions of the game, and if she and her children enjoyed DDRE, she should pick those up. She thanked me for my input, stating she wasn't sure how any of this worked. As I was checking out, I saw her purchasing the game with two pads. A job well done if you ask me.

So think about it, won't you?

Some days I think I'm just too smart for the internet.

But then I read about guys who think they've astrally projected into Sonic the Hedgehog fanon to fulfill their furry sexual fantasies, and I don't care if the internet is dumb; it's always entertaining.

Dear friendslist:

All of you rock and I want to thank you for saying nice things about me when I need them. It makes me feel happy in my tummy, and distracts me from the person at work who just sent out an email asking for makeout music.


While I'm on the subject of work...

Dear freelancer:

Thank you for distracting me by giving me an absolute rage-on for you. Most producers seem to have their spots edited so quickly, and you keep asking for more time, and more VO, and then complaining about money. Every time I think I can't get more angry with you, you one-up yourself. Awesome!

Thank you,
