As usual, less productive than I had hoped

Please note that a good 70% of my Tonner announcement freakout euphoria earlier today was specifically doll-related. Remember, I already made my list of Ten Dolls I Would Like to See Tonner Make, so... this is all doll-collector crazy right here. Mostly.

(Since I mention a Susan doll in that top ten entry, here's pictures of the Narnia dolls Tonner pulled from their site [maybe they went back to the drawing board?]. Not only do I want them to actually get around to selling these, because I desperately want a Susan, but I also want them to make a Caspian so bad so I can buy him for her. I know, it's crazy, but for some reason I love Susan in the movies. [That's probably not how you expected me to finish a sentence beginning "I know, it's crazy," is it?] )

Also, in completely unrelated news, I created a media page on my little personal wiki, mostly as a scrapbook for myself so I can remember when people let me pretend I was someone important (whee!). So SUCK IT, WIKIPEDIA! Media outlets have occasionally mistaken me for someone notable enough to write about!


Whoa, where did all the linkspam come from?

This is horrible but it made me laugh, since I find David Blaine's "magic" antics to be so willfully ill-advised (YOU DON'T HAVE TO HANG UPSIDE DOWN AND RISK A STROKE OR GOING BLIND, DUDE): He is TETHERED, you can GET HIM.
And according to Inside Edition (which is on right now) there is possibility for him to suffer a STROKE or go BLIND, so that'll be exciting to witness if you go.

The Best & Worst of the 2008 Emmy Awards [Recaps]; Emmys show failed for a host of reasons; Emmy Hell Postmortem: The Only Thing Worse Than the Hosts Were the Ratings; Emmy ratings may be worst ever; The Hater: Someone Made This Show?; Every Awkward Emmy Moment in Two Minutes [Clips]. All I know is, occasionally would people would pop into the comments of my HAI GUYZ I SNERFLE post and be like, "There are five hosts and they all suck" or "Josh Groban is scaring me." I really was better off passed out amid a pile of Kleenex, apparently.

("Say what you will about his talent, his popularity, his banality, his backstory, whatever, but [Groban] isn't stupid. He knew the position he was in, he knew the job he had to do, and unlike the hosts, writers and producers who pumped (and tape-delayed!) three hours' worth of bullshit into America's beloved televisions, he did his job. And he pretty much meant it — every outlandish segue into a condescending gospel choir or Muppet guest appearance seemed to nudge his energy incrementally higher.")
