Now you know and knowing is just a touch over half the battle.

Daily Musings 3/13

Posted by goldwriting on March 13, 2008

1 – I’m buying one of these for my bathroom. Then I’m going to throw a big party when I hit 80 o’clock. [via Josh Spear]

2 – Are we really ready for 9021-1? It’s being reported that the CW network and the minds behind Veronica Mars are planning to rehash the classic Beverly Hills mega-drama 90210 and launch it as a spin off. If they can generate even half the tabloid buzz and future celebrity meltdowns as the first one, I think we would have a true hit on our hands. [via Perez Hilton]

3 – I heard this tape floating around detailing parts of a hate filled speech given by Sally Kern, a state representative from Oklahoma, but I didn’t really want to post it up here and give her even more airtime. Now I can’t avoid it since Ellen decided to go on the comedy attack yesterday, so enjoy this and remember, never piss off intelligent comedians. [via Perez Hilton]

4 – It looks like it is teetering on the truth to say the final Harry Potter movie will be split into two separate films, slated for release in 2010 and 2011. By that point we can start to expect the deluge of spin-off films, like Fred and George’s Wild Ride to Burma, Muggle Pie 7: Hogwarts New Class, and the action packed quidditch flick, Seek It Like Beckham. [via Starpulse] (even while writing this entry it was made official by the President of Warner Brothers! The movie split, not my planned spin-offs)

5 – While the movie itself might be embroiled in some creative quagmires, the trailer has finally arrived for the new Incredible Hulk starring Edward Norton as our not-so-jolly green giant. It looks pretty good in my opinion. Thoughts? Fears?

6 – I think we are all glad to see Britney getting her sh*t back together, but the record company behind her is still trying to figure out how to salvage anything from her new album, Blackout. The first video shot for it was laughably horrendous, so this time with the new single Break the Ice they decided to do the whole thing anime style, skip using Britney all together. The animation isn’t bad, but you can feel the concept was rushed because it is a blatant rip-off of The Matrix. If you want to see for yourself, head through this link and type in “danger” and “victory” in the two password boxes at the bottom of the page. Honestly, I think I was more excited by the Tron inspired Honda Civic ad that played before the video. [via Defamer]

7 – Sexman is back for his review of 10,000 BC. I honestly don’t know why I continue to write my own reviews, I will never reach this level of sophistication and depth. I bow to you, Sexman. [via FilmDrunk]

8 – Is it just me or in this new full length trailer for Speed Racer did they show his first grade teacher saying “Speed Racer, slow down!” while he was in class. His real name is Speed Racer? And somehow they are acting shocked that later in life he can only seem to think of one thing? Talk about paving your kids road for him. Might as well name him Youngest Senator or States Best Juggler. As for the trailer itself, please for the love of God do not go to this film on LSD, you’ll never make it out alive. [via FilmDrunk]

9 – Another Muppet movie? The sun just got a little brighter today. šŸ™‚Ā  [via ComingSoon]

10 – This was bound to happen with the comfort on anonymity online. Welcome over burdened souls to Online Confessionals. [via CNN]

    Ellen is so clever. I wish Kern would have answered the phone!

    I want to be upset that HP7 is being split but I’m not. The further into the books the movies get, the worse they have been. The movies cut out major portions of the books, almost to where you can’t understand the plot unless you’ve read them. HP7 should not be skimped on so I’m actually applauding this move by the studio.

    I don’t understand why there is ANOTHER Hulk movie! Sequels and remakes blow. (but you already knew my opinion about this.) Other than that, I love Liv Tyler. I can’t believe she’s doing a comic book movie. I bet she’s way taller than Norton. hehehe.

    I think movies like speed racer are weird. There is so little acting because everything is digital. It’s weird.

    I can’t be upset about Harry Potter being split because that should mean that we are going to get one movie about character build-up and dramatic moments and a second movie of all out Potter wizardry and ass kicking in the big, final battle. I think the war scene should be filmed like Apocalypse Now. šŸ™‚

    I don’t know why they made another Hulk film either, but since they did, I totally have to see it. I’m such a junkie.

    Speed Racer = epilepsy in a bottle.
