+ So it looks like "Zombieland" ruled the cinematic roost this past weekend...and to mark the occasion, here's a (spoiler-filled) interview with Jesse Eisenberg and Woody Harrelson. I didn't get a chance to see it but I heard good things. Did any of you check it out? What did you think?
+ Hey, here's a five-minute trailer for Roland Emmerich's "2012." I like the part where this blogger talks about how the next trailer should show character development so audiences won't think this is just a piece of CGI candy. Of course it's just a piece of CGI candy! That's the ugly beauty of any good Emmerich movie. He's our generation's Irwin Allen...and God knows, "Poseidon Adventure" could have used way less character development. (I'm looking at you, Ernest Borgnine's cop and his prostitute wife.)
+ This past weekend, Darth Vader was rescued by R2-D2's car. No, seriously.
+ Looking for some scary reading? Let me send you my bank statement! Ha, ha, no...I jest. Let's try that again. Looking for some scary reading? Here's a list of the 10 most frightening Stephen King novel. "Pet Sematary" lands at the top of my list simply for the way cemetary is spelled. Oh well, no one ever said undead animals could spell. P.S. My scariest King novel was "The Stand." Couldn't finish it. What about you?
+ In sad news today, James May's Lego House couldn't be saved and has been dismantled. The one silver lining? The millions of bricks used to build it will go to Legoland where they'll be used in their annual build competitions in support of autism research. Thanks, Emily, for the link.
+ USA Today has a nifty interview with cartoonist Berke Breathed, marking the 30th anniversary of my favorite comic strip of all time, "Bloom County." I still miss you, Bill the Cat!
+ You know how awesome watching TV is? You know what would make it even more awesome? A magic wand that could change your channels. And a clone of Rupert Grint to bring you snacks. That latter bit is still a ways off though.
