melissa joan hart didn’t even give mario lopez a speech about “spanning time.”
star trek IV is the best star trek, and i will physically fight anyone who says otherwise.
also, in his speech at the end, mario lopez says something about how he “lost a lot” because of truddie. um, what? what did you lose? your shitty girlfriend was mad at you for like five seconds until you implied you had bought her a diamond and then your engagement continued as planned until YOU broke it off. the whole kidnapping was, at worst, a MINOR INCONVENIENCE for you. WHAT ARE YOU EVEN TALKING ABOUT, MOVIE?
“if in the first act you have an old tymey pistol on display in a diner, you must kidnap mario lopez with it like, thirty seconds later. otherwise, do not put it there.” — anton chekhov
i think my favorite part was where the brother came out at christmas dinner and the grandma (sorry, grandma!) did a spit take but she clearly didn’t have anything in her mouth so she just kind of blew a raspberry? also the fact that the roadside gas station in the middle of nowhere just happened to have extra virgin olive oil? this movie, you guys.
work was so busy today, good grief. there are so many people! why are there so many people?? i would definitely be okay with a whole mess of people getting the 4400ed away, minus the part where they come back MYSTERIOUSLY. what are the holidays like for you, adult monsters with real jobs? are they everything i always dreamed??
now i am eating a salmon burrito and continuously refreshing the ups shipment tracker, like that’s going to make these stupid comic books get here faster.
my mom wanted to name me ichabod at one point, but my dad was NOT having it.
are you allergic to a specific component of the ocean (salt? kelp? CRABS?) or just, like, THE OCEAN?
what a tiny delight!
see, i’m sort of the opposite: i usually just wait for trades, because i like being able to read a whole arc in one sitting, and i just like having everything in a nice hardcover (if available) book on my shelf, but there are a couple of series (saga in particular, and batman, incorporated, when that was still running) that i’ve been debating switching to monthlies for because the wait is excruciating.
what comics tho?
i’m in! i’ve already seen a handful of them; i’ve always wanted to try and watch them all.
i am getting over a cold, but i think i can probably still look forward to having a hacking cough for no reason for another month or so, because that’s just sort of what happens whenever i get a cold.
i have to work tonight and friday, but both are closing shifts during our “extended holiday hours” that no one seems to know about, so the store is basically dead for most of the night.
tomorrow my family will be doing our traditional thatnksgiving-at-the-beach, which is always fun even though i am a grumpy vampire who hates the beach.
now i am eating a comically large roast beef sandwich and watching mystery science theater and fidgeting with this stupid design thing that was supposed to be due last week but then when i went to submit it the deadline had been pushed back to the middle of december, so now i’m just going to fret over every little detail of it until the last minute like a real dummy.
no more stupid recap thing at the beginning of the episode! the part at the end where our pals both let their beautiful hair down after a long day of haunted house hunting was v cute. also, francesco francavilla’s poster for this episode is one of my favorites so far:
one question i have about this week’s new girl is has jess always had that car with the flame decals? didn’t she used to have like a blue station wagon or something? like, it obviously doesn’t matter, but i don’t remember it and it just struck me as weird for some reason.
ALL OF THESE. (all of these except for the polar express.) i’m kind of flabbergasted that no one has mentioned elf until now (i’m not going to read back through the thread to see if that’s actually true). ELF IS THE BEST.
that’s the worst name i ever heard.
i feel like the other mst3k santa claus always gets overshadowed by conquers the martians, but it’s one of my favorites as well. plus “no, lupita!” is one of my favorite running jokes, AND i once saw a mexican woman legitimately shout it at her young daughter on a bus, and i’m dead now.
millions is basically a very cute remake of boyle’s earlier shallow grave, but they are both great.
r.i.p. all of us!
also, the nightmare before christmas is technically a halloween movie AND a christmas movie, so.
the videogum spooOOoOoky holiday movie club!:
-silent night, deadly night
pretty okay! not perfect, but better than i had expected.
tonight i am playing my first show since my old dumb band broke up like a million years ago (july). i am only moderately terrified.
