Found via [personal profile] donutsweeper: The writers of Eureka dealt with ransom notes when it came to a missing puzzle piece. Read the hysterical saga here. Seriously, they need to have something like this for one of their episodes.

Thanks to Io9, you can see some Ghostbusters related artwork. My favorite is #5, with #6 a very close second.

Here’s a clip from Rex Is Not Your Lawyer. While David Tennant’s American accent is awful, I believe I’ve heard worse.

Azazel will be joining X-Men: First Class—Jason Flemyng will play him.

While Green Lantern is still in production, a scriptwriter has already been hired to work on the sequel.

You can watch an interview with Stephen Moffat about Sherlock on BBC Breakfast here or here. No spoilers, as they try to remain vague for anyone that hasn’t seen the third episode. Moffat seems to be saying there will be a second season.

There may be a Quantum Leap movie—but the Sam and Al we know may only be in a cameo role. They might have a new person playing Sam. Supposedly, Scott Bakula and Dean Stockwell are considered too old for their original roles now.

[community profile] heroines_fest is open and accepting prompts (both DC and Marvel related) here.

Some good news--as of the last time I checked on Toby this morning, he was fine. Nobody made any attempts to hurt him or dump anything in his yard during the night. He’s wiggling and happy, and...making enormous holes in the ground through his digging, like always.

Even if the temperature is hitting 110 today, I'm sending Dad over periodically.

Here’s the footage of Blue Beetle transforming that debuted at Comic-Con. It looks more like something that should be on Power Rangers or Big Bad Beetleborgs. I think I read somewhere that it’s for a transformation sequence in Smallville. Booster Gold and Blue Beetle will be in the final season, but it will be Jaime, not Ted.

Io9 lists The Best Cosplay of Comic-Con. Some of those costumes are great. My favorites are the guy dressed as Lobo in #21, Bender in #33—same one who was in the protests, Cloak and Dagger in #38, (well, mostly Cloak with a mannequin of Dagger attached at the hip) and Mystique in #47.

Topless Robot lists 11 Bad Draculas. The list includes Morgan Freeman in The Electric Company, along with the version of Dracula that appeared on Buffy. I liked Love at First Bite and Dracula Dead And Loving It, and they’re on the list.

10 Things Io9 Discovered About The Green Lantern Movie At Comic Con. One thing in particular--apparently 10 years ago when they were first looking into getting a movie into production, studio executives asked if Green Lantern could fight villains without the ring, since they didn’t like it.

Blogtor Who has pictures from the Doctor Who Proms. So far, this is the best version when it comes to footage of what happened there, even if it’s a little hard to hear what Matt Smith is saying at times.

The Five Best Moments From J.J. Abram and Joss Whedon’s Visionaries Panel. They answered some interesting and funny questions. In the comments over at Io9, someone mentions that when they think of Visionaries, they think of the 80’s cartoon. Same for me, actually.

For anyone that may have heard about a stabbing (in the eye) in Hall H at Comic Con, here’s what really happened. There were conflicting reports, according to various posts on my friends list. Geeks of Doom and Slashfilm were there when it happened, and the former gave their account.

Runaways is expected to begin filming in January.

Remember when Improv Everywhere did a Ghostbusters skit in the New York Public Library? This time, it was a Star Wars skit on the subway. I loved the reaction of the guy sitting next to Leia. Someone needs to do a Doctor Who related skit.

It looks like there’s yet another Bruce Banner casting rumor—I’ve mentioned the one of Joaquin Phoenix. This time, it’s David Tennant. And Nathan Fillion. And Adrien Brody. [profile] whedonesque discusses all this here.

The cover of Entertainment Weekly shows how Ryan Reynolds looks as Green Lantern. Something about it is off around the chest. Possibly the ribbing.

William Shatner stole Leonard Nimoy’s bicycle.

The 12 Greatest Sci-Fi And Fantasy Speeches. [profile] whedonesque discusses the list here. Bill Pullman’s speech in Independence Day is mentioned. Also mentioned are Buffy’s speech to Dawn in The Gift, Jonathan giving Buffy her Class Protector award in The Prom, and The Doctor in The Christmas Invasion—there’s another Doctor mention from the original series, back when he considered wiping out the Daleks.

Topless Robot asks everyone what their biggest nerd regret is. It's worth reading the comments.

For me, a Nerd Regret might be my 11 year break (1994-2005) from watching movies entirely. I could have been in the theater on opening day for X-Men, X-Men 2, Spider-Man, and Spider-Man 2. Instead, due to the 11 year gap, I eventually ended up there on opening day for Spider-Man 3 and X-Men 3. I apologized to Dad for dragging him to those two.

On the flip side of the above, the 11 year gap spared me from enduring Batman and Robin and Batman Forever, so there’s that.

Oh, and because I was still reluctant to go to another movie once I did start going again despite loving Batman Begins, I ended up going to see Serenity long after it was first released in the theaters—maybe 2 weeks before someone on my friends list convinced me that I needed to see it. I could have been there opening day, to see if any other Firefly fans were in the area. I’ve heard tales of people singing the theme song.

Some others that I can think of:

*Never been to a convention. I doubt I’ll ever be able to afford it.
*Also? If we're going with posters? Then how about buying a baseball player poster at a poster store the week before it went out of business. When I had the choice between that and a Thundercats poster--there might have also been at least one X-Men related poster there, but I'm not sure anymore. It was during my one week of interest in baseball, before I realized I didn't care about it after all. It’s still on my wall, because it looks oddly bare without it. For the curious, it’s a poster of someone named Jack Clark.

8 Obscure Yet Great British Shows.

The 12 Greatest Moments From Justice League Unlimited. All the moments I could think of managed to make the list.

The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Daleks. While I’ve linked to this before, this is an edited version—there’s a different voice narrating and he sounds much more like the late Peter Jones.

From Cracked: 6 Insane True Stories Behind The Stage Names of Celebrities.

The Top 10 Doctor Who Cliffhangers. Utopia and Bad Wolf are, thankfully, mentioned.

David Tennant singing the Modern Major General.

Over at The Nerdy Bird, someone’s going to have a Back to the Future themed 30th birthday party. A stretch limo that looks like the DeLorean is part of this.

Weep for humanity--behold Tent City. I'm not interested in following Twilight, but I had to stop and stare when I saw this. Follow the link to the post at [community profile] ohnotheydidnt for more pictures. I think the Twilight fans managed to beat all other fandoms for level of obsession. Mostly because I believe they were camped out far longer than people camped out for The Phantom Menace.

And if I understand right, this was only to see the stars of the movie walk by? And the signs. The horribly spelled signs. I’ve also seen the pictures of people under Twilight-themed blankets while waiting. Besides any other comment I could possibly make, isn’t it too hot outside? It’s hit 110 degrees this week where I am, but I don’t know about L.A.

A BBC radio advert for The Big Bang—the season finale of Doctor Who. It’s not really anything new, though. It sounds as though it’s just the final few seconds or so of The Pandorica Opens. You can watch Matt Smith’s introduction of the episode here. No need to worry about spoilers, since he remains vague about what’s in store.

The 10 Best And Most Memorable 80’s Cartoon Themes.

The TARDIS (Ninth Doctor era) is up for auction. It’s expected to bring in around $18,000.

Imogen Poots is in the remake of Fright Night. Going by how they say she’s Charlie’s popular girlfriend that didn’t know Charlie used to be a geek? I’d say they’re going as far from the original as they possibly can, but they were already doing that when they made Peter Vincent a Las Vegas magician.

There’s a new video in the I’m A Marvel, I’m A DC series. Iron Man, Batman, and pretty much everyone other hero that ItsJustSomeRandomGuy has used for his movie parodies—all singing about how Marvel movies have better continuity. It’s funny.

More news on the Being Human American remake can be found here. George is now named Josh, and Mitchell is now a Jewish vampire. Blood isn't kosher, is it? Syfy wants to make the show funnier than the original version. I don’t see this ending well at all.

The Amityville House is up for sale.

Four new clips from the next episode of Doctor Who have been released.

Tesla coils are used to do a lightning filled recreation of the Doctor Who theme song. The guy doing it kind of looks like a Power Rangers villain to me.

And on the bathroom sink exploding front: I do believe we got the fastest plumbers on the planet. Within 30 minutes of Dad phoning and begging for some help, they were here. It only took them a little over an hour. Part of that hour was them heading out to buy a new shut off valve, and figuring out how to get it just right. While they were here, they also fixed the kitchen sink—nothing extra for that, since it turned out to be only a couple screws loose rather than anything big. That’s fixed—all we need to do now is air out the carpet, or get new carpet in there, depending on how bad it is.

Mom’s currently wringing out and washing every towel and rag in the house. Since we used everything.

Io9 lists the biggest tearjerkers in sci-fi. They’ve left out The Body, A Hole In The World, and quite a few others. A lot of the ones that should be there are listed in the comments. [profile] whedonesque discusses the list here.

There has been an episode of a cartoon or a special that I have been trying to remember for over 20 years. The only things I could remember about it were that a lunchroom scene was involved, and a bully put taffy in a sandwich. This is so vague a memory that not even [profile] whatwasthatone could help when I posted something about it a long time ago.

Today, I was digging through the Wikipedia page for The Nostalgia Critic, and saw that an upcoming review will be The Care Bears Movie. So I just randomly started looking through episodes, and saw one was called Braces. Well, that’s what I remember. And a clip from the scene in question is here, the part I remember finishing within the first 21 seconds. The episode was aired in September of 1985 (so I was 4, as I thought) and I probably only saw it once. Can’t stand the show now that I’m older, but at least I know what I saw now.

You can watch an extended trailer for the new season of Doctor Who here. Before, the music was too loud for me to understand what the Doctor was saying. Now, it’s not as loud, and you can understand everyone. A few extra moments are in there, too.

A new clip—1 minute, 35 seconds long—from Vampires in Venice has been released. You can watch it here. After watching that, I think Matt Smith will do fine. I like him, at the very least. Also released, an opening clip from The Eleventh Hour—you can watch it here, at Blogtor Who, and here on Youtube.

Captain America has been castChris Evans will play the role. I gave it a few days before I posted it just in case it changed, due to all the rumors I’ve seen floating around. I’ve never seen him in anything, so I don’t know if this is good news or bad news. I avoided the Fantastic Four movies with him, because I don’t care for Jessica Alba. That, and I’m not really a Fantastic Four fan.

Matt Smith discusses how he sees the TARDIS.

The Support Stacie Auction is tomorrow--I’ll post a reminder and link to the thread then, as well as everything I’m willing to write.

On the subject of Revenant--I’m having a huge amount of fun when it comes to writing Selene possessed Meggan. I’ve also learned that the stranger ideas (little things, actually) apparently strike at midnight, while I’m sound asleep, during a thunderstorm. Nice way to set the mood, I guess. Hey, at least I can remember them until morning. *looks at icon I'm using* Never has my icon seemed quite so appropriate to the situation.

And now, an RPG related meme, taken from a few on my Insanejournal friends list:

What sort of character traits/types do you associate with me, and what sort of characters would you challenge me to play?

I’ve never seen him in anything, so I don’t know if this is good news or bad news. I avoided the Fantastic Four movies with him, because I don’t care for Jessica Alba. That, and I’m not really a Fantastic Four fan.

Matt Smith discusses how he sees the TARDIS.

The Support Stacie Auction is tomorrow--I’ll post a reminder and link to the thread then, as well as everything I’m willing to write.

On the subject of Revenant--I’m having a huge amount of fun when it comes to writing Selene possessed Meggan. I’ve also learned that the stranger ideas (little things, actually) apparently strike at midnight, while I’m sound asleep, during a thunderstorm. Nice way to set the mood, I guess. Hey, at least I can remember them until morning. *looks at icon I'm using* Never has my icon seemed quite so appropriate to the situation.

And now, an RPG related meme, taken from a few on my Insanejournal friends list:

What sort of character traits/types do you associate with me, and what sort of characters would you challenge me to play?

BBC America has a new promo for Doctor Who—you can watch it here. It’s not the same one as the other I linked to.

SFX lists the top 25 science fiction shows. Angel, Being Human, Firefly, Torchwood, and Buffy are all listed. As is Doctor Who, at #1. For some reason, they think Buffy was an influence on Xena—if anything, it was the other way around. [profile] whedonesque discusses the list here.

From Cracked: 6 Baffling Mistakes Criminals Apparently Make All The Time. And also from Cracked, there’s The 5 Creepiest Unsolved Crimes Nobody Can Explain.

Topless Robot lists The 21 Greatest Episodes of X-Men: The Animated Series.

You can watch the entirety of The Curse of the Fatal Death over here on Youtube, if you never have before. Apparently, you can upload things more than 10 minutes now? Unfortunately, you get at least one ad in the middle.

I just got my prompt from the person that won me at [profile] help_chile, so I’ll get started on that soon. They want Martha/Jack, set post-Last of the Time Lords, with the Doctor realizing (too late) exactly what he threw away, rather than acknowledge.

And lastly, a meme, taken from a few people on my friends list:

Ask me a question about one of my stories, or about my writing in general. Ask about my plans for future parts of a current series if you want to, or progress on something in-progress I've mentioned. It can be absolutely anything in any fic, and I will answer you as honestly as I possibly can. Don’t hold back.

Wolverine’s 10 Most Mortifying Moments. The strange Australian accent he was given in Pryde of the X-Men gets a mention.

The Monster Squad is getting a remake. Michael Bay is involved in this, too. I haven’t seen the original version of that movie since I was in elementary school—apparently extremely edited to remove all foul language.

A Wrinkle In Time is going to be made into a movie. I’ve never read the series, but I remember others liked them.

There’s a new 30-second trailer for the new season of Doctor Who. It’s not the 30 second clip from The Eleventh Hour that I posted yesterday, it’s a trailer. The music’s a little loud at one point, so I had trouble understanding what the Doctor was saying. It's better than the one I found on Digital Spy, though--couldn't hear anything except the music over there.
