    The likely final season of Scrubs is starting at the end of this month, and I'm psyched, especially with Braff trying so hard to get Tobias in a guest role. Plus, Season 4 just came out on DVD, which resparked my interest in the show. So, until the premiere, we can discuss the greatness of the past seasons, no matter how ridiculous JD's love for Turk became. I didn't think I would like Season 5 too much at the onset, especially once Elliot started dating Keith, who I still can't stand (especially since they seem really adament about pushing their relationship as a serious one). Still, they busted out one of their best episodes ever in "My Lunch" (probably my personal favorite), and stayed strong until the cliffhanger finale. TV.com has a list of the first few episode titles for season six, including "His Story IV," which I assume will be from Kelso's perspective. I've found the "Stories" to be hit or miss, with Cox's, The Janitor's, and Elliot's to be really good, while Turk's and Carla's were lacking. And there is no better recurring character than The Todd. I hope they go out with a bang.

    Oh man. I feel okay downloading it because I'm getting it via iTunes and the limited edition vinyl. It's driving me crazy that the official track name is "Sink Ships" instead of "Sinking Ships." What the fuck? I love that they've finally managed to capture The Cardinals' live feel on a studio album. For months I've been listening to straight up bootlegs because they sound so much better. That'll be changing. "Magick" is INSANE. I can't pick a favorite track.

    These songs are actually written/performed by lead guitarist Neal Casal. They've been setlist staples for awhile and are on his album No Wish to Reminisce which came out a year or two ago. And yeah, the new songs are outstanding. "Cobwebs" might be one of the best things he's ever written, "Fix It" gives off a great Dead vibe, and "Magick" just fucking rocks. I'm still insanely jealous, I have to wait another month to see them.

    Campaign 2008

    This makes Tina Fey's "I'm going to tell everyone I'm voting for Barack Obama, but actually vote for John McCain" line on 30 Rock all the more appropriate.
  5. I just heard that the director of Lakeview Terrace is the same visionary behind the Wicker Man remake. This solidifies the movie as a future classic.

    Do elaborate.
  7. The new Samuel L. Jackson movie Lakeview Terrace looks like our next great unintentional comedy. The preview was getting laughs throughout when it ran before both Pineapple Express and Tropic Thunder. "I'm the po-lice, you HAVE to do what I SAY!"

    The Youtube thread

    According to the comments on the video, $20 "Liberian tender" is all of about 31 cents American. That's outstanding. .999 Silver leaf. "A silvery tribute to all who were lost on that tragic day."

    The Youtube thread

    This commercial is always on G4. Fucking hilarious. "On the front, the frosted towers stand out against a mirror-like background, much as they did in the gleaming sunlight of that fateful morning"
  11. I was thinking the exact same thing, although I can only recall seeing it for Pineapple Express. Good idea in theory, lousy execution.
  12. Anyone else a fan of Flight of the Conchords? It really grew on me. The first few episodes I was watching just for the music videos, but the second half of the season was tremendous. Rhys Darby (Murray) and Kristen Schaal (Mel) were consistent scene-stealers throughout the season. The Most Beautiful Girl in the Room

    Pineapple Express

    I think I'm going some time this weekend. I was pleasantly surprised to see that Stan Sitwell was in the movie. And if I hadn't heard Danny McBride speak in the commercials, I wouldn't have recognized him without the mustache. Guy was the best part of Hot Rod (and that is saying a lot).

    Completely worth it. You can actually download/stream his shows from earlier this year, because it'll probably be similar to those, with the possibility of some new stuff. He's a lot more laid back than he was years ago, and it's very likely you'll see a 15 minute "Easy Plateau" jam and random stage banter about robots and Diet Coke and Mariah Carey.

    Games you can beat to death

    I've probably finished Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening for Game Boy more than any other game. Though most of the times I played it I ended up stealing the bow and arrow from the shop, which made every character call you Thief. Worth it.

    The Dark Knight

    2008: The Year in Music

    Has Evil Urges by My Morning Jacket been mentioned? Killer album, though I think I still like Z better overall. "Highly Suspicious" is the jam this summer, man.

    I am a heron. I have a long neck and I pick fish out of the water w/ my beak. If you dont repost this comment on 10 other topics I will fly into your kitchen tonight and make a mess of your pots and pans.

    Has anyone seen Poison and/or Dokken live recently? They're playing a show in Tampa in July and I think it has the potential to be one of the most surreal experiences of my life.

    Wow I did not expect this. p.s. Loved the hamburger phone.
  22. The digital cable channel Soapnet plays 2 hours of The OC every weekday, from 3-5. It's a damn good show, with great writing and enough to cater to a pretty broad demographic, which I guess explains its success (for the first season or two, at least).

    Albums Listened to Today

    eMusic offered me 75 downloads in addition to the 30 that come with the basic monthly subscription ($10), so I'm downloading heavily. I probably won't keep it after this month, though. Also:

    Book recommendations

    Got Youth in Revolt for Christmas and breezed through it in two days. Obviously I wish I had read it about 5 years ago, but I still loved it. Are the sequels any good?

    Jason Bateman gave my favorite performance of the film, I think. Loved the chemistry between Michael Cera and Ellen Page. Some of the one-liners got a bit annoying but I adored the entire film. Also, hello Velvet Underground and Belle & Sebastian and other members I didn't recognize from the great soundtrack.
