The summer movie preview Entertainment Weekly just came in. Interesting pictures on some of these movies--and they put Batman ahead of Star Wars, which tickles my schadenfreude bone for some reason. Still, way too many pictures of Wookiees for my taste.
Also, I'm trying something new with my Yahoo calendar--making certain things available for y'all to see. Granted, I'm not showing you everything, but I'm thinking I'll post anything interesting I see in the TV listings, like good movie recommendations (you can add to calendar straight from Yahoo TV), and you can get a small glimpse into my schedule. Because, you know, I am just that fascinating.
(The real reason I'm posting this link is because all the new Lost eps are marked on my calendar, and if you hover your cursor over the event title "Lost," you can read a brief summary of that ep. ABC put out a press release, apparently, which I in turn snaffled from a Snarkfest post.)
(Note: please do not try to add me to your Yahoo Messenger, because I'm going to turn you down. It's nothing personal; I just don't have time to talk to folks. Seriously, I use it to talk to one person (guess), and occasionally Sister Girl when she's too lazy to walk twelve feet over to my room.)
Meanwhile: I'm doling out the last several pimps in smaller groups, so: if you haven't appeared yet, you will. Yes, new requests are closed until the end of May.
aberranteyes: "Could I possibly inveigle you into pimping aeoncontinuum and the comms for the individual Trinity Universe role-playing games (aeonadventure, aeonaberrant and aeontrinity)? They're actually etherlad's, not mine, but I'm doing this as a favor for him, since I'm sure there must be a TU fan somewhere on your flist. ^_^ "
cabell: "For people interested in fun, affordable art, frippy does awesome paintings, and has recently branched out to some painted objects like boxes. She's got a website with a lot of her art available to view at http://mentalsewage.com and she's started listing her work on eBay if you're interested in buying some. It'd be really nice if she could get some exposure because right now she feels like she's pressuring her immediate circle of friends to buy her work, not that she actually IS, but she definitely deserves a wider audience. I have one of her bunny paintings in my living room and lots of people have commented (favorably) on it."
hey_montana: "Could you also be so kind as to point out that tomorrow (April 23rd) is 24 Hour Comics Day? It's a worthy cause overflowing with geekery. Hooray! Further information can be found at www.24hourcomics.com."
layered: "You could pimp me.. because I always like having new friends. :) Yay? Oh, also, Anderson Cooper 360, which is on at 7:00 on weekdays on CNN and everyone should watch it because Andy's the best. And Dr. Sanjay is also excellent."
Land of the Lost: The Movie?
Orthopedic surgeon Gary Michelson said Friday he is considering philanthropic alternatives for some of the $1.35 billion Medtronic Inc. plans to pay him to end a patent dispute.Dear Dr. Michelson: Please marry me. Not because you are now filthy rich, but because you are awesome. P.S. You are also cute.
"All you can really do with that kind of money is give it away. There's no way you can spend it," he said. "What I'm interested in doing is setting up a medical research foundation and seeing if we can't make a difference in the world."
