When they close Juniper over the summer, what happens to
So Mischa Barton wants off The OC. I hope the producers agree to her request, and instead of giving her the graceful move away, they dedicate an entire episode to different ways of killing her. Maybe everyone can have a separate dream of Marissa dying, then they stage an intervention, and as she leaves, a guest-starring Samaire Armstrong shoots her directly in the face. Who wouldn’t enjoy that? Highest OC ratings in years.
The Observer has spent a lot of ink over the last couple of weeks covering how ResLife, St. Mary’s College and the University in general is using Facebook to check up on people. The first article was fantastically well written by the fantabulous Mary Kate Malone, but now it just seems people are getting ridiculous with it. If you’re on Facebook, or MySpace, or have a blog, that stuff is public space. If someone wants to use that against you in some way, that’s something you have to consider when you partake.
It just takes a little bit of discretion. If you enjoy using cocaine, go on using cocaine, but A) Don’t list it in your interests, B) Try to avoid any pictures of you using it going on Facebook, C) Don’t blog about the awesome time you had snorting it off a stripper last Saturday night, D) Don’t leave MySpace messages about how much fun you had with whoever’s cocaine and E) Don’t join any Facebook groups dedicated to the love of cocaine. The same goes for lesser things, like enjoying The OC or being a Pittsburg Pirates fan. Just keep it on the DL and everything will be okay. No more Observer articles needed. Honest.
Speaking of the Pittsburgh Pirates, our terrible bullpen has dropped the third straight game to start the season. Granted, it seems the Brewers always have our number – probably some sort of Randall Simon sausage thing – but the season is not a loss already. Zach and Oliver both pitched well in the losses, we haven’t even got to try out Mike Gonzalez as a closer yet and we still have Ian and Paul yet to pitch. Besides, as Dill and Jack Wilson both reminded, the Astros started 15-30 last year before making the World Series. Considering the Buccos are just looking for respectability, there’s a lot of room.
Get scared, Nasty Nati. Ian's coming for ya.
Jeff’s review of Slither, which I might consider seeing, despite the fact I have a tremendous fear of aliens taking over human minds and slowly assimilating our entire planet:
When I first saw the trailer for the movie Slither I thought to myself “Oh lord, another horrible horror movie", but boy was I wrong. Slither had all the things you want to see in a horror movie. It had its fair share of scary moments as well as its share of funny moments. The people in this movie are easy to relate to and you even feel sorry for the ones who don’t make it. So if you get the feeling that you want too see a movie that is a mix between Night of the Living Dead and Tremors, I suggest you check it out. I give it 3 out of 5 stars.
Personally, he hooked me as soon as he made the Tremors reference. Nathan Fillion’s involved. I like it.
I'd like to say I watched all of the championship game Monday and had some great opinion on it, but every time I turned it on Florida was dunking on somebody and Ben Howland was looking confused, so the only lasting image I'll have is Joakim Noah screaming and doing the Chomp repeatedly. Worthy champions, and I hope they all come back, because the more powerhouse teams in college basketball the more interesting things are. Florida, Kansas, UNC and Ohio State should all be stacked with talent next year.
I just love this picture:
I’m often mocked for my love of “One Shining Moment” by those who don’t understand how absolutely awesome, wonderful and potentially tear-jerking it can be. I leave you with…sigh…Jim Nantz and Mateen Cleaves, in a nice little story on why the tournament montage is the best thing ever.
