you mean, i can’t call you doogie?!

so, i saw the brave one today. and i couldn't help

thinking about naveen andrews as "sayid" on LOST.

it was quite unfortunate actually. as they were beating

the crap out of him, i saw the others beating the crap

out of him. (if you don't watch the show, don't bother)

it kind of sucks in a way, that certain actors get pegged as


  • neal patrick harris - doogie howser
  • daniel radcliffe – harry potter
  • jon heder – napoleon dynamite
  • anthony hopkins – hannibal lectar
  • eh, im lazy you can make your own list

personally, i tend to make my own pegs. but not really "character pegs"

they're more like creepy pegs. like for one thing, ever since i saw red dragon i can't even look

at ralph fiennes without wanting to pee on myself and run away, and everytime i see a full back

tattoo, i picture phillip seymour hoffman

in a burning wheelchair rolling down the street. i usually retain

movie plots and characters pretty well, and sometimes their

a bit too hard to shake. i'll always see natalie portman as that little girl

in the professional, steve carrel and rainn wilson will always be michael

and dwight, and will ferrel will always be… oh dang…uh…. he'll

always need more cowbell. i think that's why i get so frustrated when books are turned into movies and

tv shows, because i always have to remember everything about certain characters and plots. .. or i just like

complaining, that's probably the most likely reason.

reeding is for weenies

so, i was pretty fed up with books to movies/tv shows after the sisterhood of the traveling pants.
so, i saw children of men first and th
en read the book; and now i know why. it's pretty much like someone read the book, went on vacation for a month, then decided to write the screenplay while watching every season of the oc. i don't understand why they don't warn us when books have nothing to do with the movie except for a basic outline. but this is just silly:

it's a season 1 promo picture for gossip girl, thats gonna be on the cw. i can tell by looking at the cast they didn't pay attention to much detail. in fact, that girl on the far right is supposed to be 14, have DD breasts, and have thick, curly brown hair. the only thing they got right is the school uniform...and the girl part. and that guy to the left of her is supposed to be fat, blond, a closet gay, and have a pet monkey on his shoulder wearing matching outfits. (yup, i'm pretty serious about my reading) i wouldn't be surprised if they hired james earl jones as the narrator. boo, the cw producers, boo. heres the teaser trailer for season 1:

it's somewhat similar to the books, and i'll probably still watch it (i can't help it), but come on now.


it's summer time allright

so, i thought tthe point of having a little brother was that i would'nt be subjected to this nonsense:
yes, i was forced to watch high school musical 2 not once, not twice, but THREE TIMES!!!
and then the little jerk made me burn it to DVD. are we being serious?! who sits and writes this stuff down? i also had to
  • put it on my ipod
  • pretend to like it
  • sit down on the couch and actually watch it
  • and deal with the fact that i'm apparently the only human left that does'nt like it
what the duece?! i hate high school musical!!! i hate the disney channel! what happened to even stevens and lizzie mcguire?

not all kid's movies/shows bother me, but this crossed the line; i wish i could burn zac efron on the amazinglyy green lawn he sang and dance on
