There's lots of cool fandom stuff going down at my campus this weekend. There's a Firefly all-night marathon tomorrow night, and then Star Trek on a giant screen in the Quad. Except my brother is getting married this weekend, so, you know, I'm obviously going to do that. I'm quite happy for the wedding, of course, but that was just sad to find out.

In other news, I've caught up with How I Met Your Mother, and am appropriately in love with Barney/Robin.

Also: hey, who wants to watch Neil Patrick Harris be a singing supervillain other than Dr. Horrible? Here's the first half of an episode of Batman: The Brave and the Bold featuring the Music Meister, a singing supervillain voiced by Neil Patrick Harris.


Why yes, that would be a ring of hypnotized supers threatening Batman just like the Jets. Also, the Music Meister? Former band geek.

So, there's already an Inglourious Basterds kink meme. (No, you don't get a link.) Eli Roth's reaction, upon discovery, is to share it with the world via his Twitter. And double check with Quentin Tarantino about the accuracy of some of the prompts.

I find this hilarious.

I don't really have much to say about Michael Jackson passing away yesterday. While I'm a fervent devotee of the 1980s, I've never really gotten into his music. I am no heathen- I love "Thriller" and a handful of his other hits, but I've only recently toyed with the idea of buying its album since its reissue.

While I was in London, I watched the "Thriller" video for the first time and realized just how talented he was. I'm quite saddened by his passing, but more as a symbol than anything else, you know?

If you want to hear a far better memorial from someone who has fond memories of his music, read this post by [livejournal.com profile] cleolinda.

Clay Aiken comes out of the closet.

Wee. Oh man, all the insane Claymates are just exploding. It's truly hilarious to behold. I never had a stake in the poor guy's sexuality, because I like him for his voice and subdued, Southern bitchiness and sense of humor. And the fact that he loves being in Spamalot. :D So I'm happy for him and his new little family, because if there's one thing I love, it's nontraditional families. They're just so sweet.

I just can't wait to see the fallout. What's Kathy Griffin going to do now? She's got like six Gaiken stories- and now the funny factor is gone. :B The next Kimmel interview. 

OH THIS IS GOING TO BE GOOD.

:B

Is it bad mojo for the entirety of my New Albums playlist on my iPod to be Clay Aiken CDs?

Naaaaah.

(One sentence review of On My Way Here: The sappiest love song is terrible, but the bitchy break-up songs are AWESOME. :D)

Have discovered American Idol Rewind.

CLAY: Are you available, Ryan?
RYAN: Do you want to rephrase that?
CLAY: Are you available to play- OH. (NERD GUFFAW)

:D

CONTEXT IS FOR THE WEAK~

So, I just got back from New York. Needless to say, it was an absolute BLAST. I hurt all over, from toting around my camera and backpack and from the dance workshop. We did the choreography from You Can't Stop The Beat from Hairspray. I thought I was in pretty good shape.

I met David Hyde Pierce after Curtains! He's so very nice, and let me hug him. The whole cast was so sweet and nice. Video soon. Clay Aiken did not come out the stage door after - apparently, he wasn't feeling too hot. Either that or Natalya's warnings about me worked. D: And I am descending further into the pit of Clay fandom- I just ordered two of his CDs off of Amazon. WHAT?

I'm writing up a full report of the entire venture, but now I am wiped and just want to watch Clay Aiken snark at people.

EDIT: Eralk meets David Hyde Pierce. I shriek like a harpy at the end. I'm so creepy, guys.

Cookie/Brownie Tub o' Dough Sales: 7/200

My nerd!crush on David Krumholtz is growing to epic proportions. I'm starting to go through his filmography; I rented Ray for him (and the fact that it is an amazing movie, or so I have been told). I think I did that for Robert Sean Leonard last, which ended up with Swing Kids (WHICH WAS AWESOME).

My Netflix has been rigged to give me nerdy joy for many weeks- it's Numb3rs, Doctor Who, and Star Trek, and then I run out of Numb3rs and Doctor Who and it's movie, Star Trek, movie. :D I can no longer listen to any of the Ben Folds/William Shatner songs anymore, because I get about twenty seconds in and go ":B HAI KIRK" and I have to turn it off.

Clay Aiken talks about Spamalot and speaks in a British (well, Australian ish) accent.

I should really not find this as attractive as I do.

And from another interview that I don't feel like linking to:

JULIET: Do you have time to go the clubs?
CLAY: No. If you saw me at a club, wouldn't you leave?

CLAY CLAY MAKE YOUR NEXT ALBUM BROADWAY COVERS I'LL LOVE YOU FOREVER.

FOR SHAME, PEOPLE MAGAZINE.

You have a sexiest men issue and all Sendhil Ramamurthy gets a wee little picture in the "Sexy At Any Age"? YOU PUT DANE COOK IN THAT. DANE COOK. LIKE RIGHT NEXT TO SENDHIL. THEY DO NOT COMPARE, PEOPLE MAGAZINE.

I FULLY EXPECT A MUCH BETTER REPRESENTATION OF THE PRETTY THAT IS SENDHIL NEXT YEAR, PEOPLE MAGAZINE. THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE.

Man, only three episodes in the can for Heroes... luckily, that completes this current volume, so it's not jarring... bleh.

Work has commenced on the Tetra costume... in my head. :B I figured out how I'm going to do the hair. The clothes should be fairly easy, and perfect for the South in summer. I just need to troll some thrift stores... the pants, sword, and shoes are going to be the hardest part (in that order). I need to find white shorts, and stitch purple stripes near the hem, and I might try my hand at making the sword. The shoes will just be hard because while I do have a pair that might work for her, there is no way in hell I am walking all over DragonCon in them. I will just find some sandals that'll work. And, if that fails, I'll just wear my comfy sandals that are not piratey. OH DAMN THE EARS. Eh. Easy to find and buy.

You know, if I get this done before RenFest, I might try it out there, to see how it holds up for an afternoon. One summer costume for both events would be FABULOUS, especially with PANTS.

This is my reference- it's better than the Wind Waker one. Plus, Tetra does not approve of whatever the hell you're doing. She wants you to stop. Close that window, that's dirty!

Man, could you imagine how sheerly awesome that Blake/Jordin duet would have been had it been Melinda, and her fantastic stage presence, instead of Jordin? I think I would died from too much awesome.

...Constantine, please stop being creepy. I want to like you, really. But you need to stop being creepy first.

"Good luck, buddy!" I PLATONICALLY LOVE YOU SO MUCH RYAN.

When did they get Beatles rights? Did Michael Jackson feel benevolent today?

Melinda? ROCK THAT WORLD FOR ALL IT IS WORTH.

Sanjaya... oh, Sanjaya. I'm trying to write something about you and your performance, but all that comes out is words touching on the various themes of "GUITAR HERO" and "FUCKING ROCK GOD" and "PLEASE HAVE MY BABIES". Wind machine for the win!

Have fun, Jordin! Don't end up like Taylor, and you should do fine. Blake, you get a fantastic MCR Black Parade jacket (you either won it or fought Gerard Way for it) and a fantastic career fueled by your many fans ME JUST ME AND MY UNDYING LOVE FOR YOUR BEATBOXING WAYS your fans.

See you next January, American Idol!

I'm not too terribly torn up about Melinda's elimination- she is the best singer from Season 6, and she will be successful. After all, Chris Daughtry never made it to the finals, and his record is much more successful than Taylor Hick's.

But now Blake must win. Because Jordin cannot win.
eralkfang: (Default)
SANJAYA MAKES EVERYBODY WANT TO HUG HIM.

Aw. I thought for sure Phil would get voted off before Sanjaya, but then I hate Phil with a burning passion.

I do like Sanjaya, but I knew he had to go before the top four-ish. That highlights reel was so sweet, with Lakisha and then Ryan comforting Sanjaya. I hope he does well.

And he may be appearing on Hannah Montana, marking the first time I've turned on the Disney channel since they aired Hunchback of Notre Dame II and I just about died. From bad.

NOW TO THE MELINDA/BLAKE SHOWDOWN WE ALL KNOW IS COMING.

Fun with On Air With Ryan Seacrest, the radio show. From the 11/14/06 interview with Clay Aiken.

CLAY
Where did you say she was from?

RYAN
Uh, she's from Placentia-

ELLEN
Yeah, Placentia-

CLAY
Placenta? Is what you said.

RYAN
No, Placentia.

CLAY
I'm pretty sure you said placenta.

RYAN
I know the difference between a placentia and a placenta.

ELLEN
Yes, you do, yes, you do.

RYAN
A buddy just had a baby last week... and I just had a baby yesterday.

CLAY
Did they bury it in the yard?

ELLEN
Oh!

CLAY
'cause that's what- no, whoa, whoa, NOT THE BABY, the placenta!


WHY I AM HEARING THESE WORDS?!

ROBERT SEAN LEONARD

And he said, "Oh, you know, they're doing Romeo and Juliet over at..."- what was it... the East Ninety-First... the Shakespeare Festival, I don't know if they exist anymore- "you should play Romeo." And I thought (I was young and stupid) and said "Yes, I should." And I went in, and I read for Charles Keating, who was directing it, who's crazy in his own right, and I dove right into playing, I think, one of the worst roles ever written. I truly despised every minute of it. I love the play, I just wished I was Juliet the whole time. It's a horrible role. I think Shakespeare hated young men, that's my theory. He went to bars and they were mean to him and he wrote roles like Claudio and Romeo and Edmund- Edgar, I mean, they're all horrible, horrible roles.

LEONARD LOPATE

Isn't the responsibility of the actor to find something good in those roles?

ROBERT SEAN LEONARD

Virtually impossible. But yes, you try playing Edgar in King Lear, knock yourself out. Screaming naked from a rock. Putting barbs in your skin. They're all fickle and horrible.

-

Robert Sean Leonard hates Romeo as much as I do- well, maybe a little more, because he had to actually play the role. This pleases me.
