This is what I watch. . .

when LOST isn't on.

LOTR. My husband has forced me for the last four nights (before last) to watch these all over again. EXTENDED versions. I am agreeable and humor him by watching with him but I'm cross stitching my LOST Island Map at the same time. The only remarkable thing I can say about the films this time around is THOSE ORCS MAKE ME WANT TO GAG. Yuck. And Frodo needs to quit his bitchin'. Sam really deserves all the credit for hanging in there with Frodo that long, if you ask me. The whole thing is entirely too long, while marginally entertaining. I'd much rather read the books.

Yo Gabba Gabba. I really REALLY don't like that I like this show, but I do. I fought it for a pretty long time, and the male-voiced puppets still weird me out a little (Muno, Brobee, and Plex) but the rest of the show seriously cracks me up. Sometimes the music on this show is like one long Sixteen Candles soundtrack. It's cool.

And then you get things like THIS. Leslie, a guest "dancy-dancer" showed up to perform GLITTER HANDS GLITTER HANDS GLITTER HANDS GLITTER HANDS, RAZZLE DAZZLE! RAZZLE DAZZLE! Hilarious. Then her free-styling with the rest of the group? Hilarious! There are a few other things that I find funny, like everyone's random monotones and DJ Lance's FRICKING OUTIFT. . . . . it's definitely worth watching.

Pirates of the Carribean: At World's End.
My children have taken a liking to this series, my almost four-year-old daughter has the serious hots for Will Turner. Or she wants to be Will Turner, I can't figure out which. I love these. The most striking thing in this one, for me, is when The Flying Dutchman resurfaces at the end, the fish men all turn into real men again and Will Turner as he takes the helm as the new captain of the ship. Almost tear-worthy. The scenes with Calypso are nice too.

I Know What You Did Last Summer.

I on-demanded this last night and made it approximately 40 minutes. Did people actually watch this? I mean, I know I saw it in the theater (I was young and dumb) and all the rest of those late 90s new horror films like it, but wow. Jennifer Love Hewitt seems to have definitely influenced KRISTIN STEWART'S (bella swan) acting style, as in, gasp and glare a lot and just try to be mousy. . . .

and also, NICE FASHION. This coming from me, is serious, since I have no fashion sense at all. The long skirts in this film are almost ridiculous enough to make it worth watching. As I have never ever been able to stomach Ryan Phillipe, this film really didn't do him any favors, either, what a douch-ey character. I completely believe he's that big of a dick naturally, he was very convincing in the role. Gross.

Gosh I wish LOST was on.

ok seriously, that DJ lNace outfit in person was fing KICK ASS! i was DYING! i did NOT realize his belt said ROCK. i have had very few star encounters but that one too the cake for me! and he was soooooo sweet! one time bill nye the science guy came to rumpus and was a total douche! so i was happy that DJ lance is as sweet in person as he is on TV! he seems to really like being dj lance!

i really wish i was there watching "i know what you did last summer" with you because i have not seen it since it came out and i am sure i would have been dying for many reasons.

kristin stewart bugs the heck out of me.

you know, i think my absolute favorite thing about the whole show (gabba) is that we are to "believe" that DJ Lance is just out there, walking around with his special boom box that he just happens to keep CREEPY PUPPETS in who get to come alive when he sings the arbitrary words YO GABBA GABBA. and he's always up there above them, watching over them and giving them things.
