Every now and then (moreso when I had the layout where calendar days were little squares), I look at that archive section of my lj sidebar and wonder if I could plan out my posts enough so that by the end of a given month, the calendar would look like a Legend of Zelda NES dungeon map.

[EDIT] The icon and the label for these sorts of posts are always "NERD", but the tag is "dork". Discuss.

OMGs.

And I'm watching promos with Carrie Fisher in them right now!

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".

Ladies, I know you wanted me to think about Ohayocon, but OMG they just announced JemCon 2007 will be in Chicago! And it's totally easier to dress up as an animated character there, unless one of you sews me a Matsumoto outfit. I'll like, crochet you a Kon or something in exchange. Decisions, decisions.

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?

- I seriously do this ALL THE TIME and nothing bad has ever happened. I think it's only made funnier when I write gruesome things in the memo of Hello Kitty checks.

- I meant to go to bed early last night. I got in my jammies and everything. BUT THEN I REALIZED MY COWS NEEDED A BIGGER BARN. I went to bed at 1. Oops. Dr. Pepper is my friend.

- Why can't I find nice Harvest Moon images, screencaps, artwork, etc? I want a sheepy icon!

- Pictures from Oregon hopefully posted later today.

[EDIT] - Arr.

Weekend was nice. I got home and immediately took a nap after calling Kirk and telling him to swing by and I'd be home soon. I took a nap, woke up at 2, and he still wasn't there, and I remember throwing a temper tantrum about that when he did show up, before falling back asleep. I feel kinda bad about it, though I can't recall specifics. Let's blame it on travel! YAY! (Sorry, honey. I owe you a Coke.)

We played much Harvest Moon. I sat at the GameCube, and he played on the DS, and we discussed crops and cows and it was cute. My character has successfully married a cute doctor, though I still have to be a farmer and he doesn't help! Jerkass. At least my sheep love me.

P. Diddy wants to work together with Robbie Williams. I think their conversation would go something like this:

What?  I thought it was funny.

Pictures from the Bronx Zoo two weeks ago, where Kirk and I went for a mini vacation on our anniversary. There was much gooey smooshiness. And aminals. I heart aminals. Click on the pic to see more (and go through the photostream, since I'm too cheap to get a paid account and make new sets).

I feel like I have two pimples on the right side of my neck very close to each other. Like I was bitten in the night by a vampire with a very thin jawline.

I'm sitting at my desk and supposed to be working on a really fun and awesome project, and instead have writer's block. So, like, give me an idea and I'll write a drabble to make my inspiration start flowing.

This weekend was our one-year anniversary. I have approximately a bajillion pictures from the zoo (shocker: I like animals and cute things).

Cut to spare you the gory details )

Who Wants to Be a Superhero is NOT making me cry. SHUT UP!

[EDIT]: as suggested by [livejournal.com profile] f_o_n_y, who is pretty awesome. (Thanks for the books, lady!)
dudes, tomorrow we should all show each other pictures of our houses. or apartments or rooms or the box we live in under the overpass. inside or outside. this seems like good friday entertainment to me.

So when I post a million and one pics of my home, that's why.

Kirk and I have been going back and forth on what we want to do this weekend, for it is our anniversary and stuff. I was thinking Bronx Zoo, and some food somewhere, and probably UCBT. And then at the train station last night I saw this week's Time Out New York issue:


So now we're still thinking Zoo (unless it rains, so now I'm trying to come up with backup plans - any suggestions?), but we have tickets on hold for Saturday night's MC Chris show at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater. Aww yeah.

Working on a project that requires inspiration from mental hygiene films from the days of yore. So far I've watched a 10-minute film on an inept wife who can't cook, and wound up watching the whole thing. (I still don't understand why you'd make a cauliflower casserole.) I don't think it'll make me a better cook.

But damn, do I love these things. I think MST3K started it all.
