+ The big Battlestar day draws near, which means all sorts of good stuff is happening around the internets to celebrate the occasion. This Friday, in fact, check out Galactica Sitrep where Messrs. John Hodgman and Rob Kutner, staff writer for 'The Daily Show,' will be engaging in a brainy discussion of everyone's favorite Cylon-saturated space opera.
+ Has anyone else been watching the new season of '24'? Is it just me or does Kiefer Sutherland now sound exactly like Andy Samberg's impression of Mark Wahlberg? Weird.
+ Also, oops, I totally forgot the Golden Globes were on this past Sunday -- and instead watched "Tess of the D'Urbevilles" on "Masterpiece Theater," which was, wow, kind of a downer story. Anyway, I know I'm three days late in saying this but Tina Fey's acceptance speech (at the Golden Globes, not on "Masterpiece Theater") was awesome. Here it is for anyone else who missed the glitz and glamor of the Foreign Press on Sunday:
+ And finally, have you heard the PETA wants to rename fish "sea kittens" so that people will be less likely to go fishing and eat them? Okay, first let me just say, I think PETA does some very fine work and the world is a better place because of them and I can kind of understand the point they're making. Second, though, what the hell? It's statements like these that make them sound crazy...and also make me laugh in a sick, ashamed way, so yay:
"Most parents would never dream of spending a weekend torturing kittens for fun with their families, but hooking a sea kitten through the mouth and dragging her through the water is the same as hooking a kitten through the mouth and dragging her behind your car," Byrne says.
Again, I love animals and cheer loudly whenever another panda mauls a drunk guy at the zoo, but this seems like a rather skewed PR scheme. Good for them if it works, though, I guess. I can't wait to break out my set of cards tonight and play Go Sea Kitten....
