F@#! these rings are expensive, but Gods D@#! do I want them! Tip o'the hat to Daddy Likey.
New Orleans is getting the David Simon / Wire treatment.
I'll be wearing these when the Old Ones rise. Hail Cthulu!
Have you ever looked at a super hero and thought, "Yeah, he could be a little more beardy"? Artist Vanja Mrgan did.
There are many copies. And they're delicious.
Death comes shining a thousand bright colors

Most of the music I listened to in high school (and a lot of what I still love) was either thanks to my friend Brian L. or Carol Taylor at WNOR.

Gods, where is Buffy when we need her?
Keep your mitts off Boone though. Takes note, Cullens. Have some fun already. You're vampires.
Although it is acceptable to go to the pier, but only if you're on a dinner and/or recruiting run.
Modesty and the fact that my mother may be reading this preclude me from adding any The Hunger clips, but come on. Blood, sex, howler monkeys, Bauhaus, and David Bowie? Vampires were just cooler in the 80's.
And I may be Team Jacob, but don't think you're getting a pass either, dogboy. This is how you do werewolf.

Written by Ben Edlund, directed by Phil Sgriccia.
And now, promos and clips below! EW's Ausiello also has an exclusive clip, but beware - headline is spoilery for character casting. But then, if you're watching it, you're probably not concerned about such things.

To mark the day I'm reposting this entry from the 12/26/08 wax|wendy archives. Don't say I never gave you anything ...
When I was a kid, there were a few occasions when gifts would magically appear a few days after Christmas. One year, my mom forgot about a pair of earrings she'd gotten me. Another year, my brother really, really, really wanted a Colossal Fossil Fight. Mom couldn't find the game anywhere, and finally happened upon one, on sale, post-Christmas.
So she put it under my brother's bed, and told him she thought maybe Santa had come back with an extra present for him. Oh, the joy in our house that day! Oh, the hours of fun and entertainment we had!
The present I leave under your bed today? Yeah, it's nothing like that at all.
Behold! I give you ... The Star Wars Holiday Special ...
Under no circumstances should you try and watch this 2 hour abomination in one go. I barely made it through the list of guest stars, and that's only the first 2 1/2 minutes. Bea Arthur! Diahann Carroll! Art Carney! Harvey Korman! It's like an episode of the Love Boat up in here.

The blue cave of Bisevo is not terribly easy to visit. First you must get yourself to the Croatian island of Vis, by ferry from the city of Split. Once there, travel by bus or motorbike to the other side of the island, the tiny fishing town of Komiza. There, hire a boat or tour to take you to the island of Bisevo, about an hour boat ride from Komiza. Then you will approach the cave via a small rubber raft, which is just small enough to enter the tiny cave entrance.Atlas Obscura via Neatorama

In this installment we go BAAAAAACK to the LOST beach, nearly get swept away by a rogue wave during a Sun moment, and partake of a local delicacy.
You know, I'm not really sure why the Losties are trying so hard to leave the Island. I mean, seriously? Why?

Super fan Becky uses Chuck's phone to trick Sam and Dean into attending a Supernatural fan convention, complete with fans dressed up as Sam and Dean. One of the activities is a live action role-playing game, but things quickly turn sour after a real ghost appears on the scene.
Jim Conway directed the episode with teleplay by Eric Kripke and story by Nancy Weiner.
Nancy Weiner also had the story credit on "Monster at the End of this Book". Well played, madam. Well played.
