Friday night, feeling kind of meh

Hey, you know the people who got in touch with me about The Illusionist? The same company has emailed me about The Tudors... because they found "Troy in Fifteen Minutes." This made me laugh and laugh, because this means that they haven't even seen all the times y'all and I discussed Elizabeth or Tudor history or The Other Boleyn Girl or whatever. Or even the times I actually mentioned The Tudors itself. What I'm saying is, they came to the right conclusion--somehow.

Also: hee.



There's more where that came from, but I'm holding off until I'm sure they're okay with a couple of things. Like reposting stills. Making icons. And, uh, making fun of the show. Because... you know... that's what I do. And if it's a good show, that fun will be affectionate. Of course, if they found me (again) through Troy/15, they probably know what they're getting into.

(I don't know if I would actually have the time or energy to recap a second show, considering I can hardly do Lost as it is, and trying to do Veronica Mars concurrently fizzled out within a month. We'll see what happens. I'm not getting paid to do anything anyway.)

Linkspam:

According to TMZ, she's back in rehab: "We're told the singer is hoping three times is a charm. The emergency custody hearing that Kevin Federline wanted has been cancelled because of the new development. There will be no custody hearing today [Thursday]. Sources tell TMZ Federline is concerned for Spears' welfare and wants her to get the help she is now seeking. We're also told this will be Spears' last chance -- if she leaves rehab before getting full treatment, Federline will immediately go to court seeking orders allowing him unquestioned full custody of the children. We're told Spears showed up at Federline's house to see the children last night and he wouldn't let her in. Sources say the kids are now in the custody of Federline, and have been since last week."

And why was there no custody hearing? Federline Never Requested Custody Hearing.

Unfortunately, we do have photographic proof that she was at Federline's house. Britney whups up on some photographers who staked her out at Kevin's house. You know, I was all on the She Crazy, Somebody Lock Her Up train until I saw these pictures. And you know what? I'm rooting for her now. Because I'm sorry, to me, you've crossed a line when you follow someone to a family residence. If she flips out on the red carpet, or even on the street in LA as a private citizen, okay, fine. Take pictures of her. But when she's already been to rehab twice in one week, don't go get up in her shit, man. You went over there, to a family residence, and provoked her. I am fully on Team FUCK YEAH FUCK THAT SHIT UP as far as this incident goes, because God knows if someone did that to me and I was IN REHAB MULTIPLE TIMES trying to (allegedly) kick METH during a WEEK-LONG PUBLIC BREAKDOWN and then I wanted to see MY CHILDREN, I'd go out there and crack some heads with whatever I could lay hands on. Damn.

Police blow up foul-mouthed CDs that blared in church: "Three CD players [duct-taped] under a cathedral's pews blared sexually explicit language in the middle of an Ash Wednesday Mass, leading a bomb squad to detonate two of the devices."

From holidays to yoga pants: luxury freebies for Oscars stars. "Luxurious holidays, state-of-the-art electronic gadgets and a lifetime supply of yoga pants are just some of the freebies that will be on offer to stars this week, despite a clampdown by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS)."

The Day the Earth Stood Still Remake Coming. It's funny how my outrage gasket seems to have been blown. I don't know what blew it, either. Maybe it's because I've seen enough crap and bad remakes/adaptations come along now and the world hasn't ended and so I'm at peace with 99% of the bad ideas that come down the pipe. I can't even summon up any indignation for the idea of Sam Raimi doing The Hobbit these days.

WB Eyeing Justice League Movie.

Anthony Hopkins to play Hitchcock? With Helen Mirren as wife Alma? Hee, I kind of like it.

trailer_spot: Next, Talk to Me, Blades of Glory, Full of it. Speaking of Next: "Paramount Pictures has unveiled the trailer for the new Nicolas Cage and Julianne Moore science fiction action-thriller Next , which opens everywhere on April 27." Dammit, Julianne Moore! Now I have to see this.

Miller: Sin City 2 Is Ready To Go. Last I heard, it would involve "A Dame to Kill For" and other stories. I've heard a number of casting rumors for Ava Lord, including Angelina Jolie, but the most recent thing I heard was that it's going to be Rachel Weisz now. This kind of blows my mind a little.

Lots and Lots of Inkheart Pics Arrive Online: Hey! No one told me Helen Mirren and Andy Serkis were in this! And hey, it looks like She of the One Sleeve is in it as well. I don't know why, but I've come to like Sienna Guillory, for some reason. Maybe for rocking the ninja schoolgirl look she was saddled with, I don't know.
