"The hammer is my penis."  
++ Spoilers regarding SPN's fourth season. Mainly casting spoilers and episode concepts. Apparently people have been kind of displeased with because these appeared during Thursday's rerun episode, no warning or anything. I normally don't look at SPN spoilers, but looking at what's being planned I cannot wait for the new season. In the midst of everything involving my fandoms, Heroes and Supernatural, this fall season is going to be frakking awesome!

++ Okay, how come I didn't know that HSM 3: Senior Year is going to be a theatrical release? I initially thought it was going to be just another Disney Channel Original Movie. It's the same insanity that there's going to be a midnight release party for the new Twilight book very soon. These franchise's people, I don't even know.

++ Dr. Horrible, (Finale) Act III, in typical Joss fashion. EPIC MUSICAL WEBSERIES IS EPIC!

++ I don't know if anyone else knows about this but, ABC Family is going to have a miniseries event with Samuari Girl, based off the book series by Carrie Asai. I'm pleasantly surprised by this, since out of all the young adult books I've read it's kind of unexpected that this would get greenlit. I half expected them to have a successful shot at Fearless before anything else (which I still am expecting soon, or praying for, in the near future). But hey, I'm not complaining. Watching the trailer it looks to be a decent adaptation. Already just from the first book I'm kind of squeeing over certain scenes because it's almost exactly out of my visionary while I was reading them. I think it's going to be enjoyable, whether it stays true to the books or not. Also, there's nobody in the cast that I recognize aside from Brendan Fehr, which is good. I like unknown casting from time to time, keeps things fresh.

It's a good thing I have the episodes downloaded so I don't have to sit through getting spoiled and whatnot. But yes, I'm completely flailing over what's going to happen in the new season! My favorite will have to be Dean getting out of Hell and having it be only like, months since his death but his time in Hell would've been WAY WAY WAY longer. That's going to be interesting to see, and I can't wait to see Sam and Dean interactions again and how they'll deal.

INORITE?!?! This was just AWESOME! Nobody can do hilarious musicals like this but Joss Whedon. Now I want an evil!Dr. Horrible subplot with more encounters with Captain Hammer now turned sissy. ;D

OMG have you seen the new ruby?arg not happpy

that samari girl looks cute
Renée: Ruby. Amazing crack.rogueslayer452 on July 19th, 2008 10:04 pm (UTC)
I haven't seen the new Ruby, and I don't want to. I mean, on one hand I'm glad they're continuing her storyline since I'm still intrigued with what's up with her but on the other, WHY DID THEY GET RID OF KATIE?! They said it's about budget issues, but with what exactly? Her contract? Her time staying there? I don't get it, but it's bullshit.

She does look adorable, doesn't she? I don't recognize her from anything, which is good. A fresh face is always good and I'll be really looking forward to her performance.

Fearless.... <33333 I love thee. Although I'm so incredibly sad that I can't find "Tears" anywhere. I wanna read my books :( But they cost a fortune and are impossible to find.
Renéerogueslayer452 on July 19th, 2008 10:38 pm (UTC)
Yay, another fan of Fearless! I really do wish they could make something in the media for that, because ever since reading them I've imagined what it would be like to make it into a series or movie or something. IDK, I just think it'd be cool to see how they'd managed (they tried once, but it failed to meet the criteria so it was never greenlit).
sunshinealiasagent on July 19th, 2008 11:31 pm (UTC)
Exactly. Man though, I wish I could somehow read all the books I haven't yet. And they are not being sold any more, at least not some of them. *sigh* It's a difficult thing to find, that series. and the worst part is that I think it might be my favourite book series ever. Sort of. At least from what I can recall atm

Oh, thanks for the link to the Samurai Girl trailer! It actually looks better than I expected. I didn't recognise anyone except Brendan either, though Kyle Labine's name seemed so familiar that I went & Googled it. He's the younger brother of Tyler Labine -- the guy who plays Sock on Reaper. I love big Canadian acting families. :D

I didn't even know they were making a TV miniseries for it until someone on my FList linked me to it, and I'm pleasantly surprised at how good it looks as well. While I do want some of the books I read possibly made into a series or movie I'm skeptical and wary of how it'll be treated, but this looks like a decent adaptation from the preview. I can't wait to see how it turns out. :)

Hee, I'm pretty sure that was me! I remember linking it last month ... and then I promptly forgot about it until you posted the website link. :D I've seen the CM for it a few times since, and you're right -- it looks pretty good! I still feel a bit nitpicky about the choice of lead actress, but her performance was better than I expected.

Not gunna lie, I thought the HSM3 trailer looked *cough* kind of good.

Act 3 of Dr. Horrible made me re-realize Joss is as much bastard as he is genius. *grumbles* stupid web series. *kicks imaginary rock*
Renéerogueslayer452 on July 21st, 2008 04:00 am (UTC)
The movies are decent I'll admit that, but it's the rising popularity that scares me. But HSM is more tolerable than the Twilight hoopla, IMO.

That's the genius of Joss. We just hate to love him because we KNOW what he'll do to us with his projects. He'll make us love it and then, at the last second, squash our little hearts into pieces. Joss Whedon, The Magnificent Bastard. And we love him for it.

I actually saw a commercial for the Samurai Girl movie, and my friend asked if the girl was ever on Real World. Haha. I rarely watch MTV, but I looked her up, and she was definitely a cast member one year. Apparently, she was the most boring person that season because she was so well behaved, so good for her :)
And yeah, HSM 3, now... I love musicals. I love cheesy family musicals, but the popularity of it just astounds me. I think Disney should have left it as a tv movie. Making the move to theaters just shows that executives only want to cash in on it and they no longer care if the stories suck. I have to admit that I enjoy HSM, so I'm a little worried if all they care about now is money. Which, hey, it's Disney, so of course they care about the money, but it's still a little worrisome.
Dr. Horrible, by the way, amazing. I seriously hope there are more projects like this from Joss in the future.

I don't watch Real World either, but good for the girl for not making a jackass of herself like other "cast members" of that show do. I actually remember when I did watch RW when they were in New Orleans there was a blonde girl that hardly was ever featured, because she was so well-behaved too. Heh.

Yeah, I wouldn't mind so much if it was just a one-time thing, but since the Disney corp. is all about teh monies it's frightens me the lengths they'll go for the popularity.

Knowing Joss, he'll have more up his sleeve. Without a doubt. :)
