I've Linked Everything (Plus Friday Five)

Scarlett has apparently been in Louisiana recently recording her album, Scarlett Sings Tom Waits, which I hope will not be a total disaster because she's golden and everything she does is rife with potential for me to spend money on it.

I, however, am going to WizardWorld Chicago today, and therefore won't be around to do any throwing down or any such thing. So, here's a combination links post/random observations/and Friday Five while I'm off supporting Becca's art career.

First, the Friday Five. Just because I was in the mood to hear them again, I put up five tracks from Hilary Duff's new album Dignity, which I reviewed yesterday. They were basically the ones I liked best.

1. Between You and Me
2. Outside of You
3. All Work, No Play
4. Never Stop
5. With Love

Yes, it occurs to me that many of you are not interested in hearing them, but hell, it's my blog, so there.

I see that Carla Gugino is playing Sally Jupiter in the Watchmen movie, which is certainly the kind of dead-on, age-appropriate casting we've come to expect from Zach Snyder. I can't wait to see his next movie, King Lear with Orlando Bloom.

* Splotchy offers some free movie titles, horror and romance.
* The Last Visible Blog has a sadly typical story of comic book stores.
* Ken Levine awards his favorite shows.
* Zaius Nation has a great collection of Mae West quotes.
* It's Star Wars. With hippos. At the Skullcave.
* Final Girl unearths a quote that makes Rob Zombie look like a hypocritical ass.
* Semaj has something to say about Sir Elton John becoming the newest elderly celebrity dickhead acting like an old crank. Elton John a hypocrite? Yes, always.
* At Exquisitely Bored in Nacogdoches, there's a video of one of my favorite pretty tunes, Santo & Johnny's "Sleepwalk", and notes on another Beatles classic.
* Zaius Nation has some nice pictures of Supergirl.
* Speaking of pretty girls, Becca has this week's sexiest pictures of Aria Giovanni ever. And, ladies, she wants you to check out Kurt Russell's penis. I didn't need to see that.
* Cracked: The 5 Stages of Online Dating

Here's a terrible picture of me at WizardWorld in 1999, at the tender age of 23. That's Claudia Christian next to me. I'm a little uncomfortable because I feel bad making her sidle up to a homonculus such as me. Still, looking forward to meeting someone else today. Maybe I'll have some pictures up this weekend.
* Angry Ballerina wants to know what the fuck Susan Atkins is doing with a website.
* Chance has some info on why kids eat junk.
* Jess Wundrun has a hilarious take on the major difference between Keith Richards and Alberto Gonzales.
* Wonkette makes me want Rudy Giuliani's daughter; surprise, she's an undisciplined party rat who can't hold her liquor, like every young girl these days.
* Dr. Zaius has something to say about this week's Democratic debates. So does Dr. Monkey.
* Dr. Monkey also talks the Kuhns, the Fisher-Price recall, the 6th of August, 2001, and Mitt fucking Romney and his fucking worthless kids.
* Robert Scheer talks about the surveillance bill and our imperial president.

And finally, here's a couple of thank you's.

Thanks, Exquisitely Bored in Nacogdoches for my third Thinking Blogger Award!And thank you J.D. for my second Power of Schmooze Award!I'm bowing out of passing it on, because I've passed both on before. But I do like the honors, and I thank you.

Here Comes Johnny Yen Again has my favorite post this week. Just some pictures of the Sears Tower. I love my town!

Have a nice weekend, y'all. I'll probably be back here on Saturday.

And remember; no matter what certain lesbians, fake science heroes, apes, and rubber-suited monsters tell you, chicks dig Daleks. Won't you consider voting Monkerstein in 2008?

"I've seen everything. I've seen it all."

Thanks for the linkage man.

Splotchy said...

Oh, and have fun at WizardWorld!

Semaj said...

You got to meet Claudia Christian in person. I'm jealous, she's such a lovely woman

Dr. Zaius said...

Thanks for the links! The last bit of the video with Patrick Stewart is hilarious!

You are right about the Daleks. Women love Daleks! They are so good at housework, and they just love those scrubbing bubbles!

EL FAMOUS said...

Chicks do indeed dig daleks...I don't know how much they dig my blog, but they do dig daleks.


Dr. Monkey Von Monkerstein said...

Thanks for the links and for the Dalek porn. Sweet, sweet Dalek porn.

angry ballerina said...

holla, thanks for the plug love!

Johnny Yen said...

Your favorite this week? That is flattering, considering the other great posts you mentioned!

Wish I'd known you were going to be in Chi-town this weekend!

SamuraiFrog said...

Splotchy: No prob. And I did!

Semaj: She's even more lovely in person. She was just incredibly nice and sweet. She offered to take that picture, too, which was very nice of her.

Dr. Zaius: "Have you never seen Star Trek: The Next Generation?"

El Famous: Nice! Daleks dig chicks, too!

Angry Ballerina: You're welcome!

Johnny: I loved those pictures. And technically I was in Schiller Park this weekend!

MC said...

And of course, the irony that you posted that picture of you with her on the same day as her birthday isn't lost on me ;)

Hope the convention is going well.

SamuraiFrog said...

Holy shit, it was her birthday? That's just an amazing coincidence!
