October 2008

Here’s an interview with a cheeky, slightly sloshed Matthew Goode. God, he’s so cute. Listen to that plummy accent. Really the best part is the very beginning when he gets the wine.

He does talk about Watchmen which is cool, but he can be irresistably charming even without the weight of a mega blockbuster behind him.


1. I have a new flatmate, and she seems to be a lovely, fun, well-adjusted person (MIRACLE)

2. www.ew.com has the LOST Season 5 Promo up and it looks gooooooooooooood.

Hand to God, I cannot tell which Carrie Underwood is real and which one is wax.

If you actually know me, and we speak on a regulart to quasi-regular basis, you’ll know that “Mergh” has been the status of my Gmail chat button for a while now.


It pretty much says it all, doesn’t it? Conveying those feelings of restless disapproval of the current state of being, a substantial chunk of heartache, a dash of fear, with anxiety to taste. And it’s not any kind of seasonal blues. I LOVE autumn. In fact, I’m more upset at myself for not enjoying my favorite time of year more!!! I haven’t visited a single pumpkin patch (the big tub at Sainsburys does not count) and am going to be too skint to send Halloween out in style. So much for October!

On a good note, I apparently have a new flatmate, as of a few hours ago, this really lovely Kiwi lady said she would be happy to take our old flatmate’s bedroom for the 2 month remainder of our lease. So I hope that works out well. If not….fuck it, you know? It’s only two more months.

To cheer myself, (and inspire you to do the same) visit www.icanhascheezburger.com for all of your hysterically funny- yet verging on “cat lady”- needs.

Was the guy in Marble Arch who BOOKED it for the bus and made it….while carrying a giant cello (sans case) on his back.

We salute you.

Usually in the UK, we’re 6-8 weeks (and sometimes longer) behind on US films. It can be a bit of a bummer, to get messages from friends saying something like “Tropic Thunder was so awesome, you saw it right?” and have to shamedly hang my head.

But now, because it’s LONDON FILM FESTIVAL time (woo hoo!!) movies are descending upon London like locusts! And it’s quite awesome. I’m hoping to catch a few things (even though the ticket prices are way jacked up). I’m a bit bummed I missed the only two screenings of Frost/Nixon though. I’m dying to see that.

But the point is, even if I don’t catch it at the LFF, the new James Bond Quantum of Solace will be released wide on October 31st here, and two weeks later in America!!!


And even though I sort of love going to see a Bond flick on Thanksgiving with my family (like we did for Casino Royale, possibly the best Thanksgiving night EVER) I’ll be happy to see it Halloween afternoon (because you KNOW I gotta go out Halloween night!) with my friends here.

Also, I’ve decided that even though the video is laughably bad, I really like the Jack White/Alicia Keyes Bond theme, “Another Way To Die.” Check that shiz out.

The most HILARIOUS FUCKING PHOTO I have ever seen!!!!
