Alas, you missed last night’s blog post. I miss it even more than you as wordpress managed somehow to make the darn thing disappear. So I’ll give it another go. This time, the usual two sentences a topic. Let’s see how I do.
I don’t even remember Chuck is on on Fridays anymore. Although we did have a watch a fun Thanksgiving episode craving on Thanksgiving but we’d loaned the DVDs to a friend.
Hart of Dixie had a double header this week: fun. Cast is excellent, I’ve always liked Tim Matheson, it’s good to see him play someone with an edge.
Good Luck Charlie Christmas road movie was loud; want to watch it again and have a second opinion. Had some serious moments and a runaway story that might save a scared individual someday.
Arthur Christmas was full of Christmas fun and wonder, Aardman scores again. Solid story, excellent animation as always and great voice talent, especially Bill Nighy, who keeps popping up on my radar.
Eureka Christmas Special — oh yeah. They managed a great episode, included Taggart, left out Zane, gave a shout out to every animation style and animated Christmas special you can think of and had a bonus (and funny) Jim Parsons voice cameo.
Have been picking up Archie Comic Double Digests on visits to the comic book store. Lots o’ fun + comics for $3.99; Jughead’s edition my favorite so far.
There was a Joan Jett haiku but I’ll deal with that at a later date.
Did you see Joan Jett and The Foo Fighters on
|Letterman? Pretty intense, they all looked like they were having a great time and crushing “Bad Reputation” on their guitars was all they ever wanted to do in the world.
And the two sentence limit takes a pause:
Being in that zone is an amazing thing. Trying to get there with a new project — iApocalypso — and adding a new collaborator to the mix. So far, it’s a project of mystery kind of thing, although I am working on a logo* and there is a Tumblr account. Between the Mayan apocalypse and the upcoming political one, I figure there’s going to be no way to avoid to the wave of mention/interest, so why not try to use it as fuel. So if you have a favorite apocalypse scenario or related reading material, drop a mention in the comments or @ me. Twitter is where all the conversations happen.
My favorite people on Twitter are the ones who play along with Blink Kitty Love, the crazy crushing cartoon band that is as much a work in progress as I am. Experimented with having a guest stop by for an interview on the band blog, @TravisErwin, fun and funny author of The Feedstore Chronicles. Sent him half a dozen (half of them goofy) questions (the band is the snacks, music and goofing off parts of my personality), happy with how it turned out. Might look for a few more people to ask questions. Could be you. Here’s a sample:
Top a burger or build a sandwich for us so we can decide if we want to stop by for a snack.
I am a near complete carnivore so for me burgers and sandwiches are all about the meat, and nothing green, will ever taint my meat. Bacon, cheese, layers of other meats. That is the ONLY kind of toppers for me. I also do a lot of blends for the backyard bashes I throw. Grinding, say ham and beef together to create my own hamburger patties.
Feedstore Chronicles: how funny is it (aka is it safe to drink snortable fluids while reading)? And who should we buy it for?
I hope it’s damned funny. I hope it is Exorcist-like in that fluids shoot with great force from those crazy enough to drink while reading.I know it still makes me laugh and I’ve read, edited and re read the stories dozens if not hundreds of times. The reviews have been great. Well, all except for the guy who was kind of ticked he’d given the book to his nearly 80 year old mother. Apparently it was a bit risque for her taste. So I’ll say it’s for anyone with a sense of humor and a tolerance for lewd comedies.
Check out the rest of the interview here.
Another group of @blinkkittylove buddies are Kristyn Burtt, Sandra Payne and Jennifer Bobiwash, all of whom once worked on the excellent The Web Files, which I’ve mentioned before and which just got nominated for IAWTV (International Academy of Web Television) awards in three categories. Check out Burtt’s blog for details. Congratulations. Glad to see all of their hard work get recognized.
Enjoy your holiday season. Hope whatever it is you want, you find yourself in that neighborhood. With parking available ; )
*Logo in progress, this is the second take:

My sister actually likes the massed cold crowds in parking lots approach to starting the holidays. I’ve never understood that. This is the time of year I don’t even drive by malls, thereby avoiding traffic and retail related craziness. I did take advantage of Black Friday deals from 3 online retailers, one of them being Blackheart Records. Yes, I finally acquired Joan Jett related gear (1 hoodie, 1 CD — usually I do digital downloads but Gayle wants to listen to it in the car. Turns out (a little sadly) that the car has the best stereo we own.) I need to upgrade my office acoustic set up.
Movies: oh, best thing I’ve seen recently was Masterpiece (yes, the PBS people) Page Eight, with Bill Nighy and Rachel Weisz. Very excellent, full of precise conversations and Nighy’s expressive and subtle face. I’m still appalled that they CGIed over it in the second Pirates movie. Bill Nighy is also one of the voices in Aardman’s new movie, Arthur Christmas, which looks more fun the more I see of it. And great voice cast. I’d really love to see a voice actor Oscar category.
Been reading. Still getting through Retromania a chapter at a time; still enjoying it. Picked up The Best of Archie Comics, 70 years of good + good natured storytelling. It’s actually pretty impressive.
Caught up with Hart of Dixie again. Some very funny moments. And Rachel Bilson is charming. Liked her on How I Met Your Mother, liked her on Chuck, good choice to build a show around.
Kung Fu Panda: Legends Of Awesomeness is Nick’s new half hour animated series. Animation continues to mix styles and the replacement voices do a good job. Solid effort. I’ll watch ‘em when I come across ‘em.
Started catching Supah Ninjas again. Nice mix of comedy + action, plus bonus George Takei. Good Luck Charlie’s having a Christmas road movie. Looks fun. Wizards of Waverly Place is heading for the wrap. They should cheat + find a way for all three Russos to keep their powers. China Anne McClain keeps knocking songs out of the park and A.N.T. Farm is doing a good job with variety comedy styles — you’ve got the dumb blonde, the snide blonde, the smart dumb blonde, the snappy patter, the clever reference, the Keystone Kop, the slapstick, whatever it is, they’ve probably tried it. Jessie’s actually having nice ensemble movements and Debby Ryan is freed by not having to play off of or up to Cole Sprouse.
Want to catch the Muppet movie this weekend. And maybe pull a few favorites off the shelf. What about you?
Have been missing stop motion animation so Calvin and I cut out robots + had some fun in the backyard this afternoon. Enjoy.

Reading Retromania: Pop Culture’s Addiction To Its Own Past. Solid music references + author Simon Reynolds knows how to keep a discussion moving + interesting. Enjoying it. Considering who is innovating these days. Also, Joan Jett is trying out new music in concert. I’ve never had the anticipate a Joan Jett and The Blackhearts album thrill. I think I’d like to.
Finally picked up Malinda Lo’s Huntress but wasn’t impressed. Ok, girls kissing, but is that really the only reason people like it?!?!??! Very thin on plot and character. Too simplistic for me. Trying to figure a fictional way to get the taste out. Gayle suggested Bellwether. Read Bellwether if you haven’t; it’s a wonder.
Has anyone read the new Terry Pratchett, Snuff? I’m curious but fear that some plot points might be off putting. Pratchett can do that. But mostly what he does is turn out comic gems so if I see it at the library I’ll give it a try.
Tower Heist was mediocre, although I enjoyed Téa Leoni, Matthew Broderick and Casey Affleck’s perfomances. Rest of movie uneven. Car out the window stuff entertaining.
Catching up on the sixth season of How I Met Your Mother, which we skipped last year in prime time. Solid stuff.
Chuck just makes me sad this year. So much potential + comic talent wasted. And why is only Chris Fedak talking it up. Is the lack of Josh Schwartz influence part of the problem?
14% voter turnout on Tuesday. Appalling. Local write in city council candidate might have actually gotten enough votes so that’s the excitement of democracy in action. Of course, then he might get booted for a 20 year old drug charge, which is unclear legal language at work. Ah, America.
Being impressed by hustle. And considering how to be a bit more proactive about my own projects. Jason Sadler’s I Wear Your Shirt is selling next year’s calendar now. They wear shirts 365 days a year promoting businesses through social media. It seems both an unusual + successful strategy. And that’s a lot of energy + personality to put into a business. Lori Kirk of Cavata Clothing also impresses me with her get the brand out there + make something happen hustle. I want to do a Boston T-shirt/music safari sometime. Between Cavata, Declaration and Regan Smith Clarke, there’s certainly some things to see.
That’s 20. What are you reading/watching/thinking about?

Happy Halloween. Have been finding the season inspirational, as mentioned in the last post. Four new Blink Kitty Love comics + I also turned the latest 12 panel one into a slideshow which you can see at the end of this post.
And now for some reviews. Let’s start with Warehouse 13, as we had a disco Halloween with the Duped episode from Season 1. If you haven’t seen it, it’s a great suspenseful stand alone Alice in Wonderland meets Vegas episode that’ll have you hooked. Joanne Kelly plays so many moods + thoughts so well. Scary good.
So was the Warehouse 13 Season 3 finale. Resolved all the previous pacing issues in the last hour, after the ridiculous let’s kill H.G. pause. Sure, get rid of your genius asset, that’s a great idea. (Yes, there will be more spoilers if you continue or you can skip to the next CHUCK in bold).
They ended up with a huge can it all be rescued cliffhanger? How far can they go back, who can they save + what will be the cost are the questions fans will have months to consider. If it’s too easy, well, no one will probably mind. But I think there have to be consequences. But then I also think I don’t want H.G. gone permanently. I’d miss the swagger, wink and snark. I think Steve Jinks was a good addition, but Warehouse 13 has never really incorporated Leena in any useful way that develops her character (Season 4 goal, Warehouse 13 people?) so more new characters has its dangers. But hey, the ride’s been fun so far, let’s see what happens next.
Can’t muster up any Chuck enthusiasm, especially after seeing this season’s kick off episode. You see, the truly wonderful thing about Chuck is that Zachary Levi is an incredibly gifted physical comedian. He could do intersect awesome while ninja kicking while at the same time seeming to be moving his leg like that for the first time. It’s a frikkin gift, Chuck powers that be, and why your show worked. Just dropping the intersect into Morgan’s head won’t reproduce that. Now, Joshua Gomez can be funny, but I don’t think this storyline plays to his strengths either.
Good Luck Charlie is doing a road trip Christmas movie. Wikipedia claims My Babysitter’s A Vampire has been picked up for a second season. Hope so; enjoyed the humor + the charm.
Blackheart Records released a Spooky Mixtape for Halloween. Good way to get an introduction to the Blackheart’s bands. Liked Joan Jett’s Season of The Witch, Girl In A Coma tracks enjoyable, and got to try another Kate Crash song, which fit in nicely. Also enjoying the new Girl In A Coma album, Exits and All The Rest early, thanks to the Blackheart Brigade. Try the video for Smart, which I think is my favorite of the songs, although One Eyed Fool is close second. Mother’s Lullabye grips. Girl in A Coma has a unique sound and while lyrically, I’m not as drawn in as I am by some other musicians, the sound and voice package makes me think dancing along would be fun.
DC 52 in the order I like ‘em: Demon Knights (YES! Etrigan, rhyming, swords, knights, magic, multiple heroes who are women, etc.), Batwoman (had to pick it up, good character, GREAT art), Flash (always liked Barry Allen, also great art), Legion of Superheroes, Legion Lost, Justice League International, Blackhawks (gets one more issue). Not keepers: Static Shock (sad about this, but too much back story + first person narration), Teen Titans (too angsty, also heavy on 1st person narration + back story).
Love the art on Spider Island: Deadly Hands of Kung Fu, so different. It’s great how the names of the martial arts moves are written into the stories as the characters perform them. I am also always glad to see Iron Fist, one of my favorite characters, used well.
Captain America is out on DVD; looking forward to picking that up and watching it again. Back to the one DVD a month Netflix plan again; there are movies + episodes of shows I don’t want to buy but do want to see.
And I think that’s it. Stay safe, have fun and make someone laugh. Cheers.

Start off October with the Disney My Babysitter’s A Vampire marathon on Saturday. Fanged fun.
Glad to see Caroline Sunshine (finally) in the opening credits for Shake It Up and Noah Munck in the iCarly ones. Both actors key parts of the ensemble.
Moneyball was an excellent, enjoyable, worth seeing movie, although the last 10-15 minutes seemed directed/written by somebody else. Red Sox owner’s collapse of established societies talk rang a little general/shoehorned in and the earlier scene in the gym when Brad Pitt’s face is averted from the camera and you see the emotion in his entire body as the A’s try to win 20 was much more moving than the close up on his profile/eye toward the end, daughter’s song was great though.
Hart of Dixie…trying to watch more soap operaish storylines and like Rachel Bilson from her Chuck arc so this was fun and a good start.
Have been on a How I Met Your Mother kick and we caught the season premiere, which made me want to see what happened next. Also realized actress playing Victoria (Ashley Williams) was one of this season’s Warehouse 13 villians so let’s see more of her, people.
This season of Warehouse 13 is not building the suspense as well as last season. Too many episodes that don’t quite get to consequences, also possibly too much of Pete issues (and I even like Pete).
The Big Bang Theory two episode season premiere, which I liked so much better than the end of last season, although the second episode was forced. Penny + Amy have better chemistry than Amy + Sheldon so when it’s girl time, Amy works into the equation nicely.
iCarly: Freddie and Sam are dating and I’m laughing. And watching again.
Victorious: yep, give Daniella Monet as much to do as you want. Jade without Beck is scary but Andre on mad rants about girls is fun.
Books: been in a reading about cooking mood. Man With A Pan was solid, entertaining and full of good quick read chapters.
Comics: the DC 52 titles I bought (reviews later): Justice League International, Blackhawks, Legion of Superheroes, The Flash, Teen Titans (probably not a keeper), Legion Lost and Static Shock. Also decided to take a chance on Frankenstein, Agent of S.H.A.D.E. + Demon Knights, which my comic book guys are acquiring.
Flipped through Action Comics #1, but too …..simplified maybe????? I think there’s too much pressure on the reboot of Superman and more fun might be had with a character like the Flash, who strangely enough, also has an interesting + intelligent local reporter/love interest in his vicinity.
And on that note, time for reading myself to sleep. Good night all.

(Skip to the BOLD if you’re not interested in Chuck and/or Scooby Doo ranting)
And I was disappointed. For such a personal show, with such loyal fans, the last bit of this season’s Chuck was a let down. Ok, I could let no Jeffster at the wedding pass, but no reception at all, no hint of honeymoon, just a tacked on set up to what looks like a way to totally fail at keeping me interested in Season 5.
Where to start? Too much; why didn’t Sarah die instantly when everyone else exposed seemed to? Where was Vivian’s convincing rise to then decline of Volkoff villainy? Why pack two full show’s worth of dramatic moments and confrontations into 40 hectic, oddly paced minutes.
Bright point: Timothy Dalton has excelled all season and he continued this episode.
Nice acting, as always, from Zachary Levi and Yvonne Strahovski (who is off to film a movie w/ Seth Rogen and Barbra Streisand). The Chuck and Sarah relationship is the heart, bone, blood, marrow and soul of this show. Which is why the ending tanked right down into the I’ve got a really bad feeling about this end of the spectrum.
Morgan with an intersect?!??!?!?!? Start the Bobby Ewing planning now, Chuck creative types. Rebooting Season 1 w/ Morgan will not draw me in. What makes Chuck work is not the nerd out of water scenario but the Chuck and Sarah relationship, its honesty, charm and development. You will not replicate that with Morgan. Morgan is the comic relief, best at the Buy More, not always that great when interacting with Casey. Please get over your crush on Morgan as the focus of season 5 and challenge yourselves enough to make me think that you had a thought past get them married, that’s a great ending, oh hey, bonus, season 5; oh wait, we don’t have anything past the wedding…
And that was my Chuck season finale rant.
Time for a mini rant re: the latest animated version of Scooby Doo aka Scooby Doo: Mystery Inc. Caught three episodes, Daphne and Velma spent most of one of them worrying about prom, and much of another was more emo dating dribble. The third was “let’s prove Scooby’s not a sidekick.” Now, yes, a lot of the originals were goofy no dialogue chase scenes but there were stellar bits of comedy in those. I laughed, got a little spooked, had a lot of Saturday morning fun. Now Scooby Doo’s just another show visiting Degrassi Pablum which is a waste of voice talent, a treasured brand and the very stylish new moody dark color palette.
Now for things I’m actually looking forward to:
Watching the Chuck pilot on DVD tomorrow night again so I can have good Chuck thoughts.
Seeing Cars 2. Not a Pixar fan and the original Cars didn’t thrill me, but the Mater shorts on Disney have been fun and I’m always glad to see or hear Eddie Izzard in a project. Have you seen any of his solo shows. Find a DVD of one, laugh until you hit the floor. Here’s a clip.
Warehouse 13 Season 2 DVDs on June 28th.
Buffy coming to Teen Nick on May 31st.
Victorious and iCarly teaming up.
Foodjammers: The Cooking Channel is becoming our default TV station and Foodjammers is a show about 3 guys who build food related contraptions. It’s fun.
And did we mention Bitchin Kitchen will launch its second season in July; have you started watching yet. It’s a hoot.
Joan Jett’s (and other Blackheart label bands) late summer/early autumn Concert dates.
Getting my “Censor This” shirt — shirt.woot cyberpunk derby.
Book I’m having an interesting time reading: The Smart Swarm.
Rereading the first Hopeless Savages collected series, have been reading them in random order and enjoying their excellence. I am very fond of comic books that mix the comic format with music: Hopeless Savages, Blue Monday, Love and Rockets, Phonogram, Scott Pilgrim, CGBG
And good night.

I have a list. I’ll take you through it.
H.G. Wells, the Warehouse 13 version, made an appearance in the Season 3 promo and an H.G. Wells spinoff is being developed. Good news.
Thor: Tom Hiddleston played Loki’s erraticness excellently, Chris Hemsworth turned in a hitting all the good notes performance, S.H.I.E.L.D. continues to be my favorite thing about the Marvel movies, Jaimie Alexander did good work as Sif in her limited screen time and Idris Elba rocked solid on the rainbow bridge. Good job, Branagh.
Hot Fuzz: really liking Simon Pegg (both the actor and writer) right now. Hot Fuzz had some stalls but the final fight was epic, all the actors were amazing and though I’m still not sold on Edgar Wright as a director, I’ll check out a project if Pegg is involved.
Zach and Cody Graduate, The Suite Life On Deck series finale…if only any of the rest of the episodes had been that sharply written. Brenda Song comic timing was sadly wasted most of the time by people who don’t know how to write dumb intelligently.
Chuck: Oh, man. Sarah collapsing…there’s a heart stopping moment. Don’t think they did the best job developing Vivian Volkoff the villain but looking forward to the finale and congrats on the Season 5 pickup.
Bitchin Kitchen…have been having a friend join us on Wednesdays to watch The Middleman and Bitchin Kitchen, always good to laugh in company. Glad to hear it got picked up for Season 2.
Originals With Emeril Legasse…he talks too much. Was excited about the concept but it’s nobody but Emeril and there’s too much of him; Guy Fieri does a much better job of sharing the spotlight on Diners, Drive Ins and Dives.
Tee Blitz: New t-shirt site about to launch, with t-shirts by comic book artists. They’ve been tweeting out impressive art links and are running a win 365 t-shirts contest.
Spaced: where my Simon Pegg study led. Laughed very hard at the first two episodes, then it got tedious and there was too much performance art*. So we’re bumping the rest of the first season in the Netqueue and getting the newish Star Trek next instead.
Reading: Have been stopping by the library on the way to tai chi class. From Flappers 2 Rappers is fun; slang words frequently morph their meaning rather than disappear entirely.
Weekend plans: reading — just started William Gibson’s Burning Chrome short story collection, #photofloralsafari, cooking, cleaning, ripping the wrap on a DVD, etc. Might see Jumping The Broom next $5 movie Tuesday, although Gayle is tempted by Bridesmaids.
Enjoy your weekend.
Free comic book day was fun, comic book guys are always pumped up, which is nice. Not much variety, mostly mainstream + movie tie ins left. Picked up a bunch of Power Girl’s at the $1 a pop sales price. Nice humor, great art…added it to my list. Need more heroines now that Spidergirl’s finishing up at #8. Might try out Zatanna (there’s an upcoming Zatanna-Black Canary team up #teamfishnet maybe?!?); turns out Gayle’s mental image for Zatanna was actually Vampirella — the things you find out when you actually talk about something — and how surprisingly easy it is to differentiate by costume description.
*Which left me wondering if you could actually successfully spoof/parody performance art. Just stay away is my thought. Mimes, yes; robot mimes, heck yes; performance art, please no.

And it’s racing along. Have started serious Much Ado About Nothing prep. Having fun trying to design a logo…mostly fun. Had an artist lined up but that didn’t work out so I’m back to design it myself. It’s a good way for me to focus on what the story is about in its simplest form and where my presentation of it is going to start. Theatre Under The Trees is very me, so the years I get to design the logo may not be the pinnacle of graphic arts design but they do capture the spirit of what I’m trying to communicate to the audience. Developing a wedding bouquet pierced by sword image; the working title is DangerBouquet.
There’s a new Blink Kitty Love webcomic in the universe; those are fun to do.
Partly inspired by the fact that the band won a seemingly random free t-shirt from @subversiverobot. Tonight, fun facts about skunks helped them win a t-shirt from @Omunky. They seem to be on a free t-shirt roll; I just have to stop them from heading to Vegas. T-shirts, alas, are not legal currency.
What’s up in my reading/watching/wandering universe.
Prom: was fun, solid performances, pretty good script for a teen prom mostly comedy, excellent soundtrack and some very nice moments. Enjoyed it. Looking forward to Thor this weekend and Free Comic Book Day. Would like to see Fast Five, I think the addition of Dwayne Johnson to the mix is an inspired idea, but it violates my acceptable level of car carnage in a movie limit. So tell me how it is.
Chuck: still funny, some dud moments, but mostly hitting the group comedy chemistry, kick ass action scenes ball right out of the park.
Went to the Supershow, fairly new comic convention in Reading that my brother discovered. The nieces and nephew love it. More exhibitors than last year but still a nice friendly feel. Too tired for a cool stuff I found/acquired linkapalooza now, but I’ll try to hit the highlights sometime soon.
Have a huge stack of books from the library. Best one so far is a 12 Reasons Why I Love Her, a graphic novel by Jamie S. Rich and Joelle Jones. The art is lovely and the story is a fascinating exploration of the misunderstandings, mergings and musings of lovers.
And that’ll cover us for now. Take care. Thanks for stopping by.
Oh, there’s a Eureka/Warehouse 13 Mother’s Day Marathon on SyFy…good stuff.

Note: posted last weekend on the alt blog.
Trying to finish Winter’s Bone; see why the guy playing the uncle got his nomination. Quiet menace. Jennifer Lawrence also does very well. Movies in theatre: have been looking forward to Beastly, but tired of seeing Alex Pettyfer on my TV in ads for his movies. It’ll probably be our $5 Tuesday movie because Adjustment Bureau reviews are piqueing my interest. Emily Blunt is someone who’s not in enough movies.
Piece in an art auction this week. For details see my art blog.
Like the addition of Vivian on Chuck. Have been getting she should play Mrs. Peel in a new Avengers thoughts so that’s a good thing.
Girl In A Coma’s Walking After Midnight up for voting in the Independent Music Awards cover song category.
Going to try to get into a better working routine next week. Setting up a short film mixing Shakespeare and animation (thank you whoever keeps finding this blog by Googling that). The two actors I need are in, next step, costumer.
Taking extra sentences to wish you an excellent weekend! Take care.
