Basketball Decapitation = AWESOME

I received voice mail from my brother today asking, "Is Deadly Friend something I watched with you, or with somebody else? All I really remember about it was that somebody's grandmother was decapitated with a basketball."

I called back and said, "No, you did not watch it with me. And I'm a little mad at you right now for not telling me about this movie sooner."

(In other news, blogger does not recognize "decapitation" as a word. The hell?)

Brain Dump: Things With Which I Am Currently Obsessed

Some of these obsessions are long-standing, some are brand new. All are a little strange, I will readily admit.

  • Typer Shark, wherein I berate myself if I am under 90 words per minute or 95% accuracy
  • Marion Nestle's What to Eat, leading me to yell, "What's up with you and the damn sugar water???" every time the husband drinks a Coke
  • Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me! (must find Adam Felber!!!)
  • Paul Adelstein, still, thank you very much
  • The Logan Square Theater, where one can take in a movie for $3
  • Filmspotting podcasts, both for the film reviews, and for the ridiculous sibling-like banter between Adam and Sam
  • Identifying the specific locations appearing in Stranger Than Fiction
  • Jonathan Coulton, creator of awesome songs like Code Monkey, Skullcrusher Mountain, and You Ruined Everything
  • My Super Sweet 16, although now whenever I watch it, I have to say, "It's ok, Satan, you're not as bad as the girls on My Super Sweet 16!"
  • Broadsheet and Bitch Magazine, to keep up my feminist cred
  • Marketplace podcasts, although I usually fast-forward through the numbers
  • BLTs from Milk & Honey
  • The Once More, With Feeling sing-along scheduled for this weekend (still contemplating whether to go get some PJs in order to dress up as Xander and Anya)
  • Sunflower Market, which provides cheap (unlike Whole Foods), consistently good (unlike Trader Joe's) organic produce
  • Joss Whedon's Buffy, Season 8 - March 7, baby!
