Casting Internets

I meant to post this earlier today, but the time does fly.

Anyone watch the Emmys? They were alright, Neil Patrick Harris did a great job hosting and I especially liked the obscure filmography call-outs and the PC guy from the Mac & PC commercials doing color commentary. I still don't think anything can make the made-for-TV movie stuff interesting. Has anyone heard of more than two of those movies? Yawn. It gave me time to read Michael Chabon's The Yiddish Policeman's Union.

I love Boner Party. About 99% of the time, they match up pretty perfectly with my views on the ladies, especially Zooey Deschanel getting married to Ben Gibbard. Now I know what it was like for teenage girls in the 60s and 70s when they found out their favorite Beatle was getting married. Sigh.

This Is Photobomb brings you this amazing picture with Leonard Nimoy, William Shatner, a sleevless rock and roll cowboy and yellow Mexican bootleg Spider-Man.

/Gamer has a slew of awesome photos of a real life representation of the Piranha Planet from the Mario games. Check it.


  1. Let me know what you think of that Chabon book when you're done. I was in the middle on it.

  2. Oh fear not. Finishing a book is such a major event in my week/month/year that I will surely be talking about it. I loved Kavalier & Clay, but also tried to read his semi-kids book Summerland and couldn't get into it. This one definitely took me a good 30 pages to get into, but I think I'm along for the ride now.

  3. It definitely has its ups and downs. I just finished Rucka's new book and it was quite good if you want to borrow it. Of course, if you decline, keep in mind he could be reading this right now...

  4. I hope he is, I love his comics, but haven't checked out any of his books. I might take you up on that after I work my way through a few more books in my huge to-read pile.
