Grudge Report

Erik and I spent much of last night watching season 5 episodes of Buffy. We're plugging away -- we've seen the first 7 episodes of the season (1/3 of them). Gah, the series is sooo good! Erik is finally getting a true appreciation for the characters, the storylines, the writing, etc. Wee! I love it!

Afterwards, I was able to catch up with this week's episodes of Charmed and Lost.

Finally, Charmed is back to normal. The episodes are back on track, just like classic episodes. I loved the one last week and this week's was great too. Lost was pretty good. I've been reading some spoilers and, boy, there are some great surprises still to come. Apparently, there is an episode coming up that will be better than even the best episode of Alias! Not sure about that but I'm game. I'll watch until I'm no longer interested. I think, though, I will be watching this show for a while.

This morning FX was showing the Buffy Musical Episode Once More With Feeling and I was able to watch a tiny bit of it before going to work

I was actually singing and dancing in our living room -- I didn't want to go to work! Hahahaha! I'm such a dork.

While watching TV last night I caught the trailer for the new Nicholas Cage movie called National Treasure. Now, this is funny -- right before Jeff (the brother of the guy who starred in Gigli who I talked about yesterday) and I broke up last year he was telling me that his brother had just scored a part in "the next Nick Cage movie" that had something to do with "a treasure map" and was going to be "a big adventure movie" because Jerry Bruckheimer was directing. At the time I thought it was a dumb idea. Seeing the trailer makes me think otherwise.

Check out the official website to learn all about the movie (you can also get your own Justin Bartha buddy icon for AIM) or you can go HERE to see the first 10 minutes of the film (the link was sent to me by Jeff, the brother, this morning). This is kinda cool ... right?

Well, if that's not cool enough for you I have something else ... how about the new Superman's Friendster profile [courtesy of Defamer]:

You can see his actual Friendster profile HERE but who knows how long it will be active now that he's going to be all famous. And, to tell you the truth, he could have posted some better pix of himself too:

I wonder if Christian Bale has a Friendster profile too?

Anyways, let's get to the (short) list of news items:
  • I had to do a double-take when I read this news headline -- Mexico's Venegas Tops at MTV Latin Awards. Hahahah, as far as I know, even though we share the same last name, we're not related. MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (Hollywood Reporter) - With three wins including artist of the year, Mexican singer-songwriter Julieta Venegas dominated MTV's Video Music Awards Latin America on Thursday. I love that her name is Julieta (pronounced Hoo-Lee-Etta).
  • Wow, it seems that Madonna and Celine Dion are relatives of one another. Are Madonna and Celine Dion related? ... That’s the claim being made by genealogist Troy Dunn, who traced back the ancestry of the two very different songbirds and found they shared roots ... Dunn, of says that the company contacted both Madonna and Dion with the happy news. “Madonna’s people had no comment,” he said. “Celine’s people were horrified.” Hahahahaha! Hilarious!
  • HERE is a list of video stores across the country that are giving away free rentals of Fahrenheit 9/11. If you haven't seen it yet, get your butt out there and see it!
  •, always the cool website that it is, has posted the results of its latest Sex Poll (which is politically themed). Do yourself a favor, check out the results ... they're awesome [courtesy of M@]
And that is all. I am TOTALLY going home today. My parent's weren't home yesterday so I'm going today after school. The Grudge finally opens today and Erik, Sarah and I are going to check it out.

I cannot wait to see this film. All I've heard is how scary it is. We'll, regardless, Sarah Michelle Gellar is in it and I love her so I'm sure it will rock balls!

The closer we come to Saturday the less likely it seems that we will be able to do our trip to Cedar Point for Halloweekend. I'm pretty bummed, I haven't been to Cedar Point in a long time and I really wanted to go this time. Sarah and I have had some great times at Halloweekends there in years past and I was hoping that we would be able to do it again.

But no one, especially me, wants to go if it's going to rain and now there is a 60% chance of rain all day long. Boo! So, the weekend will be up in the air ... who knows what's gonna happen.
