Zombieland= Best Movie of the Year (probably)

I love zombies. My mother loves Woody Harelson. Combined, Zombieland is the epitome of mother/daughter bonding.

Gay: A Linguistic Love Story

English, like all languages, experiences vernacular fads. Remember when the word “radical” suggested something “awesome? Or how “trip” suggests drug consumption, or “Mexican” suggests something of low value and/or poor socioeconomic standing? What I’m trying to say is that language changes, for better or for worse, and that English, with its hodgepodge of irregular syntax and borrwed adjective use, is custom-made to embrace these changes.

I guess that’s why I get so mad when I see commercials like this. Knock it off, people. The word “gay” has changed! What used to mean happy, care-free, and emotionally sunny,  is now a catch-all phrase for homosexuality. Same with the word “queer”, which used to mean peculiar, odd, and out of the ordinary. I am okay with this. English is designed to be okay with this. We absorb and reject words with the times, phrases become fads, and insults change by the week (remember “butthead”?)

Jason Segel

Sorry, I’m a day late on this one.  So, everyone who has ever met me knows that the way to my heart is through maximum hilarity at all times.  My favorite Hollywood funny-man is none other than Mr. Jason Segel, probably best known for his roles in Forgetting Sarah Marshall and I Love You, Man. He doesn’t play his characters with the slapstick humor and poop jokes so common with comedians like Adam Sandler or Will Ferrel, but with a self-awareness that is both endearing and believable.  Plus, he LOVES puppets.  In a recent interview, he was asked if he had a “man cave” in his own home – a place where no woman dares tread.  His response?  “It’s filled with puppets.  And I keep wondering why I don’t have a girlfriend.  I’m like, ‘Hey, this is my house; come check it out.  These are my forty puppets.’  …I think I have a bit of a reputation for being weird for that.”

Rupert Grint

this is the least tiger beat-y picture i could find.

Ok, he may be a little young. In all honesty, I’m not sure Rupert is even an appropriate candidate for Googly Eyes skeeting.  But then I saw this. (more…)
