Skunkgal - Too Much Skunk In Your Junk

countdown to dark knight

going to the 8:30 showing since the 7pm was sold out ON TUESDAY. do you think 7:30 is early enough to get there? i just don’t know.

i won’t review this because it probably won’t affect whether you see it or not. unless it’s terrible, then maybe i’ll say so. i leave you with this amazing image, courtesy of sean.

two worlds colliding

jeff goldblum on law and order: CI

whoa. whoa. whoa.

jeff goldblum will be replacing chris noth on criminal intent some time soon, and my mind is officially blown. i’m pretty sure this has been the biggest casting news of L&O since … ever? or maybe since chris noth decided to come back. definitely more huge than anthony anderson on the original and only slightly more strange than fred thompson running for president. somehow, though, this is not as awesome as mark-paul gosselaar playing a porn star on SVU (and jesus, what is going on w/ his hair on imdb?). but i digress.

goldblum will be making $250k per episode (for reference, mariska hargitay and chris meloni make $350k, some of the highest paid people in tv), and i have no idea if wheeler (julianne nicholson) will be back.
i haven’t seen goldblum lately, but i’m hoping he channels his character from independence day — geeky and misunderstood scientist, whose daddy is judd hirsh (otherwise now known as the father on numb3rs) and whose love interest is the present-day ELEANOR WALDORF(!)

and if your head is spinning after trying to follow all those names and references … congratulations. you’re normal.

six degrees of blair waldorf

in honor of the best episode of gossip girl so far, i’d just like to indulge the blog in a mini version of my favorite celebrity game that i mostly play in my own head. the game goes something like this:
1. i watch tv/a movie
2. a character looks familiar to me
3. anywhere between 2 seconds to 2 weeks later, i recognize said character (omg. he was totally in that season 4 episode of buffy as that guy in the grocery check out lane.)
4. i feel really, really proud of myself
5a. i try to think of anyone who might also watch the two aforementioned linked shows/movies and text/email/im them
5b. or, since my tastes run to the obscure, i brag to anyone in the immediate vicinity of my pop culture intelligence and aptitude at recognizing faces, even if they don’t have a clue who i’m talking about.

this game gets especially tiresome for the people i’m around the most, and in dc, people tend to be culture retarded (enough w/ the lost and grey’s). all this just means that i slowly isolate myself into a pop culture bubble, never to be heard from again — that is until i’m overwhelmed and compelled to blog about my most recent revelation.

which brings me to GG’s (naturally blond) leighton meester as blair waldorf. she’s actually had bit parts in A LOT of tv shows — 7th heaven, house, law & order (but who hasn’t) — but three appearances gave me OMFG IMDB moments.
1. entourage: justine chapin, the britney rip-off virgin pop star who doesn’t have sex just like bill clinton didn’t have sex w/ monica lewinsky.
2. 24: debbie pendleton, the season 4 girlfriend of turkish terrorist spawn behrooz araz. she gets offed (why does this tea taste like bitter almonds?) for being nosy and white.
3. veronica mars: i won’t bother describing who she was in VM b/c absolutely no one will know what i’m talking about. i’ll just post video:

a good tuesday

half-priced burgers and free ben and jerry’s ice cream can’t compete with tonight’s 200th episode of law & order: SVU. robin williams will be playing some sort of creepy sexual predator.

in other words, euphegenia doubtfire will be taking a break from acting tonight.

happy new year to me

thanks to lloyd carr, this year’s january 1 was a marked improvement over the last. hooray to michigan football for not allowing me to watch the bowl game in a DC bar. alone. wearing the maize and blue. meeting a stage actor from michigan who was recently in an episode of law and order. taking a shot every time USC scored. and subsequently getting absolutely wrecked only having to show up to work the next morning on my 3rd full week at the job. (true story)

programming note: sorry for the blogging vacation i took, but there will be mass reports of my time spent in michigan. a teaser: snow, babies, pictionary, movies, and guitar hero.
