I decided to start a new blog to announce the winners of the little quote game. Thanks to everyone who has participated thus far! It has been interesting to see who has seen which movies and who has played. The only bummer I've discovered is that character length is VERY limited, so I can't do some of my favorite lines...but I'll get something from the same movie in there at any rate.
If it takes me longer than normal to respond, it is because I am obsessed with watching Katrina coverage on CNN & MSNBC....my heart goes out to all of those who have lost homes, lives and loved ones due to this tragedy. Best Buy is planning on sending 5 people from our store (probably P-cola, Destin and Panama City, too) to volunteer with the Red Cross next weekend in Mobile since we are so close...I'm hoping that I can go. I can't even imagine losing absolutely everything...
Anyway, on a lighter note -- Lucius!! wins the latest quote (and also gets double kudos for being the farthest away = 3000 miles): "You taste like a burger. I don't like you anymore."
For those of you who haven't seen this movie yet: shame on you! (And you know who you are...ALAN.
Peace and love, homies.
Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle (Unrated Extended Edition)
Release date: 07 June, 2005
I had an idea today that flirts with brilliance. Since I am a trivia & movie harlot (whore is such an ugly word)...I thought I would incorporate them both while feeding the MySpace addiction by starting a little game that everyone can play.
From now on, my headline will be a quote from a movie or possibly a well-known televison show. Whoever guesses the correct movie/show first will be the big winner....just message me with the title. And...just to make sure you little buggers aren't looking it up on 'the IMDb', I will need the name of the character and a brief description of the scene in which the quote was uttered. Sound like fun? Of course it does!
We'll start with an easy one...just to get the ball rolling and see how many people respond and how quickly. The winner of each will be rewarded with a lovely comment on their page, and most likely a running comment thread on this blog. Ready?
Valley Girl: Music From The Soundtrack

Release date: 22 February, 1994
I haven't had much to blog about lately....work, work, work. However, I have recently happened upon something quite disturbing and I feel I must comment. Finding an ex-boyfriend or girlfriend on MySpace should normally be cause for some alarm (not many relationships end on good terms...for why would they end at all?), but finding this guy is like opening up the ark! My head is melting!
He was supposed to move to California and BE the next Batman...not join MySpace and post a picture of Batman as his default image! He definitely wasn't supposed stay in Orlando, become a stunt man at Universal Studios and start dating Vanna White's freaking clone! Plus...who told him he could age? He's supposed to stay the same way I remember him, and he's not supposed to make me do the math and actually COUNT how many years it's been since I've seen him and spoken to him. Euww!
It's gonna take some time to shake this feeling of ickiness (and I just got the Hoot out of me -- go figure).

Current mood:Not working!!!!! =P
I can't believe nobody has told me about Bunny Theatre yet! This genius, Jennifer Shiman, has re-created some of the most notorious films in 30-second flash bits, all re-enacted by bunnies!!! Apparently these little clips are on Starz and Starz on Demand, so shame on all of you who have Starz and didn't tell me about these little gems. Films include the Exorcist, Pulp Fiction, It's a Wonderful Life, Scream...even Titanic and Freddy vs. Jason (that's why I said most notorious instead of best films...cough, cough). Coming soon: Star Wars, Night of the Living Dead (with bunnies...my heart can't take it!!!), the Big Chill, Rocky and Scarface. Yay!!!!
If you don't already know about Bunny Theatre, please go here immediately:
One of my favorite things to do is stay up late and listen to Coast to Coast AM with George Noory. It's an AM talk show that covers topics from paranormal activities to the presence of Illuminati in modern civilization. Conspiracy, abductions, string theory, paranormal activity and time travel are all normal topics on this show. It is definitely one to look for on the dial if you are driving alone on a country road in the middle of the night, or having a slumber party -- especially the kind with just two people. It is on 1270 am here in Tally, and I just found out that it also runs from 1 am to 9 am on XM 165.
Please visit the website to learn more about it: www.coasttocoastam.com
Anyway, the topic of last night's show was John Titor, an alleged time traveler who decided to expose himself on the web in 2000, and then suddenly disappeared (claiming he was going back to the future). I know it sounds far-fetched, but I couldn't stop listening...it was totally fascinating. As of yet, they don't have a full recap posted on the site, but you can listen to the show using RealPlayer or Windows Media Player. I also recommend going to the John Titor website: www.johntitor.com (the guy who runs it was the guest last night), but it's probably not going to be as interesting if you don't listen to the show.
There are pictures of Titor's time machine posted on the John Titor site, though...very interesting. I studied them at length. My suspicions were raised about the validity of Titor's claims, however, when I saw his so-called 'time machine'...nary a flux capacitor in sight.
XB Destroy All Humans

Yes, I know it's shallow and petty, but dammit...I love to dish about famous people! One of my favorite spots to get the dirt (and some really great and unflattering celebrity pix) is:
Treat yourself to some snarky, silly comments and please check the archives. I swear 'Distressed Jeans' (the moderator/narrator) is channeling my inner bitch while s/he types his/her comments (she claims to have a girl-crush on Angelina Jolie, yet her diatribe is very 'bitchy gay male' in nature). I only ask that you check the archives because there are some Britney/Kevin gems in there that refer to Kevin as Cletus....oh, never mind. You'll have to read it for yourself to truly understand.
