#Supernatural 5.20: The Devil You Know

That's two weeks in a row Show has given a shout out to one of my favorite books.  This week, the boys are presumably hunting down Death and Pestilence for their bling, with some (probably) ill advised help from an unlikely ally.

If you're not bleeding internally, you're not having a good time

We weren't even in front of the speakers, we were behind then, so we're not even getting the full blast of the bass. It was rattling so hard that ... you realize that your eyeballs are being rattle in your skull.

The dancing glitter at 5:20 is trippy.  Tip o'the hat to @rd2020.

Artfully #LOST - part of the second

More great LOST inspired art from Ty Mattson.  He kicked things off with a series of viewing party invites that he turned into posters, and is now creating illustrations based on each episode of the current and finale season.

This new work distills the heart of the episode into starkly elegant form.

"Recon" might be my favorite.  I'm still holding out hope for a Sawyer / Juliet reunion in Timeline B, despite the fact that she's busy fighting aliens in Timeline V.

#io9moviemonday - Reign of Fire

The home world has picked another gem to tweet tonight.  Reign of Fire should have been much better than it was, but somehow just ... didn't ... quite ... get there.

Despite this

And this

And most certainly this!

Join the fun and follow along with @io9commentary at 9:00 pm EDT.

It's a Stampede! Link Roundup 4/18

This month I'm spending my student loan payment on Wendy Brandes' effulgent Spike inspired Vampire Diana ring.

Real vampires don't sparkle.

When I marry my next ex-husband, this is what I'm wearing.

Created by Chicago designer Christina Liedtke, more than 1,800 flowers were individually cut and sewn from 600 wrappers of the world's most perfect food - peanut M&Ms.

Tip o'the hat to @nahtzen.

Seriously, fandom?  Seriously.

Castiel is the #1 rising name for boys so far this year.

Of course it's the parents who start naming their kids Ruby and Azazel that you have to watch out for.

In the name of all that is good and holy, do NOT click on this link unless you have several hours to kill. You've been warned.

Apocalypstick Now pegged it ... yes, this is my pattern.

One week from RIGHT NOW, Zoomom and I will be in New Orleans at Jazz Fest.  Based on previous experience, the Fair Grounds will likely be one big mud bowl by then as well.

This year, I'm planning ahead, and will be shod accordingly.

Even dark lords of the Sith gotta eat.

Star Wars inspired chop sticks.

So this is apparently a thing.  Tip o'the hat to @rd2020

Left For Dead On A Monster Planet - not just the name of my new band

You are killing me Vin Diesel!
He and David Twohy have been talking up the third Riddick movie for the past year, and now we receive another glimmer of hope that the project is moving forward.  Riddick himself released this concept art via Facebook.

As always, take the "chop chop!" as read.

That's a damn fine cup of coffee. Damn fine.

20 years? TWENTY YEARS???


It's hard to believe, but April 8 was the 20th anniversary of the debut of Twin Peaks.  I was in college at the time, and clearly couldn't be seen hanging out in the TV room when I could be out doing college type stuff, so I had my mom tape it for me.  This meant when I came home at breaks, I would have 5 or 6 hours of show that I would watch all at one go.

It was kind of like having your brain removed, danced on by a midget, and then replaced with pie.

I wonder if Josie is still trapped in the night stand?

British Friday, Part of the Second: Hot Scot Edition

Tip o'the hat to Nip/Tuck Catherine for pointing out that while Becks is a perfectly cromulent British Friday pick, a little Henry Ian Cusick love is well in order. And so, part of the second, in honor of this coming Tuesday's Des-centric LOST episode.

I've got your package right here, brutha.

It's British Friday! It's British Friday!
