I'm behind on the Snack Deathmatch! Today: Apple pie vs. peach pie.
I am behind on so, so much, actually. Particularly the linkspam. And discussing the bush fires (which we will get to in greater length this weekend. Again: The Red Cross). I spent much of the day sneezing, strangely. And I'm an hour late on getting dinner because I passed out napwise from five to seven. So I'm not feeling so much with the good right now, I guess.

'Twilight': First peek at Catherine Hardwicke 'Director's Notebook.' THAT'S ENOUGH, ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY. Or, as my mother put it, "You got Twilight in the mail again!" The 'Director's Notebook' preview does seem to be worth it, if only to find out that they originally wanted Edward to have long hair, and got as far as extensions before Robert Pattinson demanded they be pulled out (callie: "He looks like a Thundercat!").

Two Nights with the Girls of 'Sorority Row.' I pulled this headline for the sole excuse of being able to tell you about one of my favorite video boxes back when I worked at Movie Gallery (good Lord, ten years ago now). I had two favorites in the "Mature" section (The Sex O'Clock News and Thar She Blows) and one particular favorite in the horror section, and it was Sorority House Massacre 2, which bore the magnificent tag line, "It's Cleavage Vs. Cleavers And The Result Is Delta Delta Deadly!" Trufax.
