The Cult of Lincoln

Is it lame that I screencapped this and saved it? Or does my sheer win negate my sheer lose?

Project Runway. So... do the judges even remember their prom? You don't want you look cute and young and 17, you want to look mature and elegant. Sweet Pea should have won! The only dresses I would have worn to prom were hers or Chris'. Victorya's = Fug. Well, it's cute, but it's also cheap-looking and unflattering. While it may be a decent choice for a mixer or party, it is NOT appropriate for a prom!

Also, I feel so terribly wicked for thinking this, but even though I loathe Christian and want to slap him in the face whenever I see him, I kind of want him to stay on the show for the time being (though leave well before Bryant Park). Yes, his clothes are often rather interesting--albeit TRAGICALLY 80s--but he makes such a lovely TARGET for the natural drama of competition, and we need someone to mock now that Elisa is gone.

P.S. HAHAHAHA a girl looking for a designer for her prom dress chose Chris' portfolio over Victorya's? OHSNAP!

Some entertaining links for joo:

AMPTP vs. WGA: Jocks versus Nerds. There's an 80s movie to be made here, if only we had someone to write it!

Bill Gates' last day at Microsoft -- Gates rocks for doing this.

*laughs* Oh, win! Bryan Fuller said at Comic Con that a musical episode of Pushing Daisies is "inevitable." For a cast that includes Kristin Chenoweth and Ellen Greene? Yes please! :D

I've now seen the pilots of Pushing Daisies, Chuck, and Reaper. All three were lots of fun! I feel good about this new fall season. Half of the shows I watched last year were canceled (Veronica Mars, Drive, Studio 60, and you know The Dresden Files was canceled even though they haven't made a formal announcement), so I have some nice openings in my schedule!

Chuck was delightfully geeky and has Adam Baldwin, but Jake 2.0 did it better. I'll probably watch the next couple episodes, but the pilot didn't really grab me. I'll probably pass on it.

Reaper was absolutely hilarious, and I look forward to seeing if the next batch of episodes can match the pilot's evil brilliance when they aren't directed by Kevin Smith. Could go either way.

Pushing Daisies was a treat. I understand the network was looking for a show with a fairy tale sensibility and an Amelie flavor, and I'd say they succeeded. It could run the risk of becoming too cloying and cutesy, but I'll trust in Bryan Fuller's genius to keep it from stepping over the line. Oh, Bryan Fuller! My heart beats! You co-gave me Wonderfalls and Heroes, and for that you win my eternal gratitude and love.

For those curious, I'm currently watching Burn Notice and Flight of the Conchords. If you're not watching FotC, boy are you missing out! All my coworkers are obsessed with it, so sometimes I forget that other people aren't as crazy about it as we are. It follows the adventures of a folk duo from New Zealand as they seek to achieve fame and success in New York City, and it's pretty much the funniest thing ever. Every episode is chock-full of musical interludes, for example: The Humans Are Dead and It's Business Time. Also John Hodgman cameoed in a recent episode! Waaaatch iiiiiiiit.

And finally, Japan brings us Human Tetris.

Mmmm, Living Legend Eggs for breakfast! My culinary skills bring all the boys to the yard.

Here's a great interview with John Hodgman. I especially like what he has to say about satire, kicking people, and being attacked by wolves.

And speaking of my fake newsmen, here's Stephen Colbert's uproariously funny followup to his interviews with Bill O'Reilly, and the announcement of the results of another highly amusing bet. *adds Stephen Colbert Day to list of Fannish Dates*
