Because you can never have too many good things in your life, and because we tend to overlook the good stuff far too often, here, in no particular order (and for no other reason than I felt like it), are 101 things that make my life awesome! I was surprised by how short a time it took me to list them all. (The best part was I probably could have kept going!)

It was sad enough to hear of Farrah Fawcett's passing this morning, but this . . .

Michael Jackson has died of cardiac arrest at the age of 50.

Regardless of what he became later in life, he was truly one of my first favorite performers of all time. Another supremely talented star, with an all too tragic end.

May he rest in peace.

ETA: Larry King just made an excellent point: by next week so many people are going to make the tabloids explode with their horror stories and "newly revealed" scandals about Michael Jackson. For the brief time that we have between now and then, it's best to remember him for the good things that he did - he was an undeniable talent and gave so much to the world of music.

Okay, I used to watch Land of the Lost all the time as a kid. So at first it was actually kind of exciting and nostalgic to see it again for probably the first time since then. (There's been an all-day marathon on Sci-Fi to promote the new Will Ferrell movie.)

Seriously, flist. In all my recollections, I simply don't remember there being such poor acting, so many reeeeeally bad special effects, and so much . . . banjo music. (Because nothing says fleeing from sleestaks and sockpuppet dinosaurs more than banjo music!)

And yet, like a train wreck, it's been virtually impossible to look away.

Regardless, I'm still pretty psyched about the new movie.

Normally, I say why mess with a good thing? Was The Last Dragon not one of the most wonderfully cheesy, highly quotable movies of the 80's? Sho'nuff! I recently heard they were doing a remake and I thought: the original is a classic! There is only one way a remake would be even remotely worth watching.

Apparently those making it thought the same thing:

Samuel L. Jackson to play the Shogun of Harlem in The Last Dragon Remake

Oh god, yes! If anyone can do the role even half as well as the late Julius Carry, it would be Samuel L.!

And the Super Bowl leads to even *more* 80's cartoon geekery!

Watch (in HD) before it's taken down!

Here are the answers to yesterday's Christmas movie cap game. All of them were guessed except one! Yay!

'Tis the season, so how about a . . .

Christmas Movie Cap Game!


This isn't a long one because, surprisingly, my Christmas DVD collection is rather limited. And many of them (with a few exceptions) would probably be considered "new classics." (As is my tradition, I tend to catch many of the classic-classic Christmas movies when they're actually *on* television throughout the holiday season, so I never bought the DVDs.) As a result, many of these will probably be very easy, but I like cap games anyway. So guess away!

Comments will be screened for now, and I'll post the answers sometime tomorrow.

Notes:
- Not all of these are Christmas movies, per se. But they all remind me of the holidays in some way or another.
- Kudos and virtual Christmas cookies to anyone who guesses #9. Very obscure, not necessarily a holiday film, but it was originally aired around the holidays. In fact, I still have the original Christmas commercials on my old Beta (!!!) tape of that movie!
- Not at all dial-up friendly!

Play Here! )

This will only be of interest to a small number of people on my flist, but I wanted to recognize the landmark 25th anniversary of my first fandom.



On September 17, 1983, the D&D Cartoon debuted on CBS, and I've been a fan from the beginning. Unrelated to the RPG (which I've never played) in nearly every way (with the exception of its name, and a few cameo characters), the series was very much ahead of its time for the early 1980's. Although we (now much older) fans have analyzed the cartoon in ways that were probably never intended by its creators, in 25 years the series has never ceased to be fun. Some of my favorite fic that I've ever read is in this fandom; some of my favorite fic that I've written is in this fandom. The show gave birth to a small, but dedicated group of viewers who remain extremely active, even 25 years later.

Happy Silver, D&DC!
