pushing daisies season 2.

My favorite alliterating-alliteration-using show returns!

For me, this was the best show that premiered last year, and it’s only bound to come back stronger, I mean, we could only watch the season 1 DVDs enough times before we’ve picked up any theories of future plot threads.

Plus, Autumn Reeser in the season premiere!  w00t!

zombie babies, death metal, et al…

It’s been a few years since I’ve been hooked to an anime AND manga series — and now, what’s been keeping me ROFL-ing at night is … Detroit Metal City. (nope, don’t understand the website either.)

Thanks to Mikko‘s suggestion, I’m now waking up to death metal — here’s the plot from wikipedia:

Negishi Soichi leaves his family’s farm in Oita Prefecture for the bright lights of Tokyo. While there he swaps his taste in Swedish pop for the totally out-of-character death metal and takes the role as vocalist in the trio, Detroit Metal City, adopting the name Johannes Krauser II. Through the story, he is placed in countless situations caused by his new alter ego, Krauser and at some point he develops a sort of schizophrenic relationship with Krauser, such as if his temper is pushed he will turn into Krauser, or if he is being pressured to make a decision or fans bother him too much he draws Krauser out to save himself. After the fact, he feels bad about what ‘he’ did and tends to lock himself in his apartment until he can overcome his regret.

Which makes for some hardcore, heavy-metal-retardershits.  To me, this is like reading BECK all over again, the story of a simple kid thrust into the world of music — an adept, honing his craft — except that the band is death metal, and the protagonist really isn’t into death metal, because it’s not trendy or Swedish-poppy enough.

Check out the anime’s trailer for baby zombis in action!

Plus, as if that wasn’t metal enough, a live-action movie was shown in theaters (in Japan!) just last month.  With Ken’ichi Matsuyama playing both Negichi and Krauser II.  (He also played L in the live-action Deathnote movies.)  Gene Simmons is in the movie, whose role is, for anyone who’s seen the anime or read the manga — quite obvious.  (Clue: Demon God of Rock and Roll.)

See it, if you can (episode 2 FTW) — or buy the manga!  (Because that’s the most heavy metal thing you can do!)

happy birthday, autumn reeser!

Everyone (what, just me?) remembers her as quirky girl Taylor Townsend from The OC — and now that that’s over, she’s appeared in numerous tv shows and a movie.  We’re bound to see her in the first episode of the season premiere of Pushing Daisies and in (gasp!) C&C: Red Alert 3.

Happy Birthday, Autumn!

tina fey as sarah palin on SNL 09132008.

After a week’s worth of speculation … it happened. Further proof that the only likable thing about Sarah Palin is how she sorta reminds us of Tina Fey.

surah cunner returns!

Monday featured the season 2 debut of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles — and picks up exactly where season 1 ends. 

Lena Headey and Thomas Dekker return to their roles as mother and son, Sarah and John Connor.  Brian Austin Green, the uncle from the future, and Summer Glau as Cameron, “come with me if you want to live” the terminator.

What’s pretty interesting is the new character — Catherine Weaver, played by Shirley Manson (yes, Garbage) who plays a mysterious Cyberdyne executive. 

Will it still be balls-to-the-wall weekly action?  Hopefully.

(I’m gonna need a lot of convincing that she’s not a terminator in real life.)

feist on sesame street.

Okay, for starters — how awesome is Feist?  Her song “1234”‘s already part of my songs-to-hum-while-you’re-happily-walking soundtrack, (seriously, look the song up, see if it doesn’t pop in your subconscious every now and then) and now it gets a Sesame Street version!  (Just in time for the 39th season.)
