haha, i just thought of this:

“welcome to foot, balls!”

Today’s recommendation is a no brainer.

The Office starts tonight.

It’s an hour.

It will be awesome.

You should watch it.

I’m also looking forward to Oct. 30, when 30 Rock starts back.

The new NBC comedy Kath & Kim looks like it might be a winner.

Oct. 9th for that one.

And don’t forget It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia at 9 tonight!

Thursday nights are the greatest nights of tv ever.

p.s. I recommend fulfilling all of your candle needs here:

Serenity by Jan

Today’s Married to the Sea made me laugh.

Hahaha, “Vacation approved!”

Speaking of vacation. I haven’t used a day yet this year…

So I have taken off every Friday from now until Thanksgiving.

Booyah.

The following video is 30 minutes.

I realize that’s long.

I just felt I had to share this amazingness:

Heat Vision and Jack was created as a 1999 pilot for Fox. Written by Dan Harmon and Rob Schrab, directed by Ben Stiller, this series was passed over by Fox despite critical acclaim from those who’ve been lucky enough to see it.

The 30 minute pilot is about an astronaut (played by Jack Black) with a medical secret who is on the run from the evil Ron Silver and the rest of NASA, with the help of a talking motorcycle called Heat Vision (voiced by Owen Wilson)”

Hold on to your butts.


Club Dread

For the majority of this movie, I was quite underwhelmed. It was done by the Broken Lizard guys, who brought us such classics as Super Troopers, which is nothing short of amazing, and Beerfest. For the first 3/4 of this movie, to be honest, I almost turned it off a few times. The only thing it had going for it was Jay Chandrasekhar‘s ridiculous British accent. Even still, it just wasn’t anything special. The end, however, was perfect. It had a bit of a twist, a bit of gore, a bit of suspense, and a bit of hilarity, which is what they were TRYING to achieve with the whole movie. They nailed it at the end. Without the ending this movie would’ve definitely received a C, maybe even a D, but I finished it with a smile on my face (and even laughed out loud). If you like the others mentioned, I’d give this one a shot, and stick it out.

Bully

This movie is very, very graphic. I wouldn’t recommend it to most people. Sheena and I started watching it, and ended up turning it off. I did a little research on it, and found that it was based on a true story, so I decided to finish it to see what happened. It is about some friends who decided to murder one of their “friends” because he was a bully to everyone, to put it mildly. Movies based on actual events, especially things that just seem so out there, are very intriguing to me. I’m glad I finished the movie, and I immediately found articles on the murder to figure out what parts of the story were real. From what I’ve read, this movie is very true to the story. The acting and script were very lacking, but the movie itself (after you get an hour or so in) was very interesting. Again, not recommended to most, but a good movie, in a not-so-good way.

Taken

This movie was pretty good for the most part. It had a bit of a silliness factor in parts, but overall it was pretty intense. Liam Neeson is really good at being awesome and beating the crap out of everyone. Just to give you a short synopsis, since you’ve probably not heard of it, it’s about a former American spy (Neeson) who’s daughter goes on a trip to Europe and is kidnapped and sold into slave trade. Obviously, the subject matter isn’t light in the least. The plot is a bit weak at times, and the ending, although a happy one (of course), seems a bit low-key, but the meat of the story, when Neeson’s kicking butt to find his daughter, is pretty awesome. I think it’s one worth checking out.

Get Smart

I was definitely surprised with this one. It wasn’t amazing or anything, but it was quite better than I expected. I thought it would be a lot of physical comedy with no real meat. It definitely had it’s share of slap-stick moments, but the plot and the action was actually pretty good. I freakin’ love Dwayne Johnson (The Rock). I think he’s hilarious. This is definitely a good rental.

Tonight is the Season Premiere of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

Possibly the funniest show on television.

Definitely the most politically incorrect.

I’m pumped. ‘Cause it’s so awesome. Duh.

What would make this day better?

If I were heading to UNC Chapel Hill for the Ben Folds Five show.

That’s right, the Five (three) are getting back together for one show.

They will be playing The Unauthorized Biography of Reinhold Messner in it’s entirety.

Which will be so awesome.

I wish I were going to be there.

But I’m not.

But I wish I were.

I love Dexter.

It is without a doubt one of the best shows ever created.

But from it’s awesomeness has come a great debate.

Who is the hotter female on the show?

Lila or Rita (alphabetical order)?

Yes, my wife knows I’m posting this.
(She’s actually a part of the debate.)

I need your vote, faithful readers.

So far, from a small few tallied, it’s neck and neck.

I won’t tell you my vote, or Sheena’s, so as to not sway anyone one way or the other.

Below are unbiased promo photos taken for the show.

(Click for larger pictures.)

Lila:

Rita:

I understand that if you don’t know the show, you don’t know the characters, and that would undoubtedly affect your choice, but for now we’ll have to simply go with outward appearance.

I trust you will choose wisely.

Brian posted this video a couple of weeks ago.

I immediately stole it from him. I don’t think many of our readers overlap, so I felt okay about that.

I was saving it for just the right time, but I think it may be old news now.

Whatever. I’m posting it anyway because if you haven’t seen it, you need to.

‘Cause it’s awesome.

This is straight up rock ‘n roll. Not for the faint of heart.

That guitar player is awesome.

ZAP!
