Girl believes she’s a wizard from Hogwarts (with a light saber, it sounded like) after getting her wisdom teeth pulled. All I did was throw up in the parking lot after Mom walked me out (after I went to sleep in the chair three times after regaining consciousness—asking “What time is it? Is it over?” each time I woke). According to Mom, her response to getting them removed was crying—my aunt’s was cursing everyone out. Nobody was fortunate enough to have the world’s nerdiest trip.

I’m now researching lunatic asylums of the late 1800’s for my [community profile] dark_fest fanfic. Wikipedia turned up Colney Hatch Lunatic Asylum, which has the longest corridor ever, taking 5 hours to walk. So if Holmes tried to escape from there during the night, he would still be trying come morning, unless he went out a window. I’ve also started digging through Victorian Era related tags over at [community profile] little_details. I haven’t found a list of everything done to people in asylums back in those days, but I’ve found a few things to reference.

David S. Goyer is reportedly going to be writing a new Superman movie, while Christopher Nolan directs.

There’s a list of people who screen tested to be Captain America. Personally, I think Nathan Fillion would work better. Even Mark Valley (who I don’t like due to his extreme blandness during his stint on Days of Our Lives) would be better.

Prompt claiming over at [community profile] dark_fest closes tonight at 11 PM CST.

The date the new season of Doctor Who begins on BBC America? April 17th.

And in other news, it was the starter that was the car’s problem. It’s fixed as of now, and Dad refused to pay them or leave until the clock was plugged back in, free of charge. The repairman wouldn’t tell Mom what the problem was with the car, because she was a woman. And that’s about when Mom drove off in it, leaving Dad behind to pay (he had his own car to get back in, so wasn’t stranded--he understood). She says it drives and starts fine now. Would have been bad if it wasn’t doing fine, as she attempted to storm off in it.

We’re getting 50 mph winds here, so I’m posting this in between it knocking out the internet. It’s reportedly going to be finished somewhere around 3 or 4 PM. It's caused the power to flicker here, and the lady that owns the used bookstore says it went out completely at her house, and caused a wreck nearby--at least, judging by the four ambulances and police car she spotted.

A man has built a life-size Dalek. It can be moved via remote control, and cost him about $1149 to make. Let us all hope he doesn’t turn into Davros.

While I don’t watch the show, this is for anyone on my friends list that does. As The World Turns has been cancelled. However, it will last until September of 2010.

It’s time for another round of collecting prompts over at [community profile] zombie_fest. I’m waiting for something Doctor Who (possibly OT3) related.

Nathan Fillion was interviewed over at If Magazine. He discusses Castle and Firefly--and his brief stint on Desperate Housewives. [profile] whedonesque discusses it here.

Red Dwarf might be back for a 10th season. From what I understand it’s not official, but scripts are already being commissioned. I’ve never seen the show, but I know a few on my friends list are fans.

For those that want to see something strange, Io9 linked to a clip of a scene from It’s A Bird, It’s A Plane, It’s Superman. I believe I saw part of another scene from there once, when I watched a biography of Superman.

There’s going to be a live action Jetsons movie, and Io9 lists their choices for Judy Jetson. Does anyone remember the movie from 1990, with Tiffany as the voice of Judy Jetson?

Over at [profile] toon_memories, someone linked to Rainbow Brite and the Star Stealer, over on Youtube. And I have to link everyone to a hysterical review (detailing the horror of showing this movie to anyone over the age of 8) of it over at Bad Movies.

[profile] cabledeadpool links to the 70 Greatest Deadpool Moments.

Someone made a huge Back to the Future Clocktower wedding cake—looks to be set in 1955, going by the fact that Doc’s cable is connected to the clocktower. Most of it appears to be edible.

Turns out you have to have created your journal before you apply at that RPG I mentioned in the last post. (Zooey Deschanel is now the PB.) So I'm trying to come up with a username for Cannonball, and am currently drawing a blank--other than flying_disaster, that is.

Beneath this second cut, you will find a poll. Simply write in your ideas for a username.

ETA: Please keep in mind this is a genderswap X-Men RPG, where Cannonball is female.


Here is the poll )

And lastly, I just posted my first rec for [livejournal.com profile] crack_van.

ETA: Just so everyone knows, the poll runs until tomorrow afternoon.

I just got back from seeing Superman Returns.

Here is what Dad and I went through to actually get to see the movie. We got there right as the theater opened at 11:30, and sat down.

After 30 minutes of previews, it was supposed to start at noon. Instead, they had technical difficulties, and didn't get the projector fixed until 12:30.

The other problem was that the first 10 minutes of the movie were fuzzy, squashed a bit, and odd looking. Suddenly, you could see someone's hand reach down, and straighten it. So I guess they noticed the problem, too.

I finally got out at 3 PM, and I am tired. It was a wonderful movie, and worth all the trouble--I'll post again later and include spoilers.
