I'm wondering...

Has Olivia Munn' role in Iron Man 2 ever been actually announced? I'm still dying to know who she's playing! If so, I guess I'm just out of the loop, but I don't think we know yet.

I wish May would hurry up and get here! The Hall of Armor at SDCC was one of my favorite things on the floor. Pretttttty cool.

Anyway.. stopping now.

Probably one of the funniest videos I've seen this year.....

Other things we should address...

Along with my super nerdy side, I also have a pretty girly side.

First, my absolute obsession with all things Hello Kitty. I love Hello Kitty. I think she's the most adorable thing ever. I buy almost anything I see that features Hello Kitty. At Comic Con, I combed almost every booth for anything Hello Kitty, including a Hello Kitty jello mold...... from Comic Con..... I'll let you marinate on that for a moment.......... Ok marinated? Good. I have about as much Hello Kitty stuff as Star Wars stuff, which makes for some interesting decor in my house as well as my body. Oh, you want to see my tattoo?? Sure..............

Yup.. Hello Kitty Stormtrooper. I'm proud of her! I couldn't decide if I wanted a Star Wars tattoo or a Hello Kitty tattoo so I got both. And I do refer to anything Hello Kitty as 'her/she'. For example, I sleep with a Hello Kitty blanket every night. If she's not in the bed, I immediately ask 'where is she?' and my boyfriend knows that we must look for the HK blanket before I can fall asleep. Sad, but true.

Second, I also love Katy Perry. I love her style, music, eveything. Yah. I won't bore you with those details, but I love her. AND I've kissed her. Yes, I've kissed Katy Perry smack on the lips! She actually kissed me, but I definitely kissed back!

Jennifer's Body.

I am so PUMPED for this movie.

A) Diablo Cody is one of my favorite screenwriters. I love her wit, sense of humor, and twistedness. Hmmm.... I don't think twistedness is a word. Moving on! I loved Juno, and I am a huge fan of her Showtime series, The United States of Tara, so I'm pretty sure I will enjoy this movie. She is probably one of my favorite females in the entertainment industry, coming second only to Katy Perry........ yah don't dwell on that one.

B) The obvious one. Megan Fox. She's hot. I might go lez for her.

C) Adam Brody! Hello! Boys won't understand this but I totally had a thing for Seth back in the day when the OC was cool. He was my dream boy! Fortunately, Adam Brody the real person is supposedly not that much different from that character so he is still one of my dream boys.

D) I just think it looks good lol.


So, unless you've been living under a rock, you probably know about the Marc Ecko Star Wars stuff. I own quite a lot of it. Mostly t-shirts, all incredibly awesome.

But what do I find when I look at the site today? Why a Chewbacca bubble jacket!

Naturally, I am seriously considering buying this. If it weren't for the fact that I look entirely ridiculous in bubble jackets, I would have already forked over the $125 for it. I'm still thinking about it though. There's also a ton of other new and awesome stuff that I want, want, want. GAH!

Top 10 reasons why Star Wars is better than Shit Trek

I view the world as divided into two parts: "Star Wars" and "Star Trek" geeks, and never the twain shall meet. It's like the University of Michigan-Michigan State rivalry -- you're either one or the other. If you ask me, there's no place for fence-sitting or wishy-washy I'm-a-fan-of-both bull puckey.

Perhaps a better metaphor would be Christians and Muslims, considering how dogmatic fans of "Trek" and "Wars" can be, how their reverence borders on the religious. Who is your one true god? George Lucas or Gene Roddenberry?

10. Chewbacca is the superior co-pilot. Sure, Spock is ruled by logic, and has a nasty nerve pinch, and both are fiercely loyal. But Chewie is the man-beast I'd want by my side in a scrap. At more than 7 feet tall, he strikes an intimidating pose; his growl strikes fear into the greatest foes; he's accurate with his bowcaster in a firefight. Not to mention his skills as a mechanic, and the heart-on-his-arm-fur compassion he shows -- something Spock keeps buried.

9. Han Solo vs. Captain Kirk. No contest here. Solo is the epitome of cool, thanks to Harrison Ford. Kirk is an uber-suave ladies man, but, let's face it, William Shatner, highly entertaining as he can be, veers into camp.

8. Enterprise or Millennium Falcon? The Starfleet ship is a beautiful and majestic craft, no argument there. But the Falcon is a scrappy little hunk o' junk, easily underestimated by its enemies. It takes a lickin' and keeps on tickin'. It's also more versatile, and can be piloted into the heart of a Death Star, while the Enterprise must rely upon its size and ability to absorb a lot of firepower. I'll take the underdog every time.

7. "Wars" is the less bloated franchise. "Wars" parts I-III are weak, I'll admit that -- combine the best elements of all three (including the still-amazing Darth Maul-Qui-Gon Jinn-Obi-Wan Kenobi battle -- more on that later), and you have roughly one good film. I will also concede the godawful "Star Wars Holiday Special" and the Ewok and Jar Jar plagues here. But among 11 "Trek" movies, roughly, what, three of them are worth watching? Who actually paid to see "Insurrection" or "Nemesis"? Did anybody give a flying frak about the "Enterprise" TV series? Could anyone stay awake during "Star Trek: The Motion Picture"? I rest my case -- even with Bea Arthur singing in the "Holiday Special":

6. Bad guys. Darth Vader is one of the greatest, scariest, chilling-est villains in the history of everything. He's an icon among icons. "Trek" has, besides a bunch of creepy Vulcans and Romulans and such, what? Corny ol' Khan, with his feathered mullet and waxed chest? Side note: I was amazed to see, during a revisitation of "Wrath of Khan," that Kirk and the bad guy are never in a scene together. What, did Shatner and Ricardo Montalban not get along? Or was the director afraid the inevitable overacting duel would torpedo the picture?

5. One word: lightsabers. On the gear/tech/weapon end of things, the phaser can't compete. Kids run around mimicking the vwoom-woom sound of a lightsaber, a testament to how deeply its ingrained into popular culture. It's also one of the most symbolic representations of "Star Wars," not to mention the sci-fi genre in general.

4. Fighting. Kirk is good with his fists, and Spock's pinch is impressive. But "Wars" is loaded with epic lightsaber duels, skillfully choreographed and, in the case of Darth Maul, made extraordinary via the use of a real martial artist (that would be Ray Park).

3. Catchphrases. "A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away" or "Space: the final frontier"? "May the Force be with you" or "Live long and prosper"? "What an incredible smell you've discovered!" or "Dammit, Jim!"? "I am your father" or "He's dead, Jim"? "These aren't the droids you're looking for" or "I've given her all she's got, captain"? So far, it's a draw. But what "Wars" has over "Trek"? Yoda: "Do or do not, there is no try." "Adventure. Heh. Excitement. Heh. A Jedi craves not these things." "That is why you fail." "Size matters not, ... Look at me. Judge me by size, do you?"

2. "Star Wars" probably wouldn't exist without "Star Trek." This might seem contrary to my argument, but hear me out. "Wars" greatly expanded what "Trek" started, reaching massive audiences and selling heaps of merchandise. Meanwhile, Trekkies remained a cult of diehards only. You could even argue that the "Trek" film franchise would never have been launched in 1979 without the success of "Star Wars" in '77.

1. Trekkies are far, far nerdier than "Star Wars" fans. So much so, an entire movie was made about them, and we couldn't help but laugh at the Spiner Femmes and the kid obsessing over the width of the stripes on his Federation uniform. Sure, "Wars" has the 501st Legion as an example of nutty fandom, but at least they look awesome in their stormtrooper gear.

----stolen from John Serba (gotta give credit where credit is due).

Trekkies.... let me know when you get a weapon as awesome as the lightsaber. Also... I did see the Star Trek movie that came out this past spring. Let me rephrase that... I was dragged to see the Star Trek movie this past spring. I was dragged by my boyfriend who is purportedly a bigger Star Wars fan than I am, but at this point I'm not really sure. I am a Zach Quinto fan, because I love him on Heroes, but that didn't seem to me like a reason to see that shitty movie. I didn't even want to see it just so I could make fun of it! But no, I had to go. I'm still pissed, and I have nothing good to say about it except that Chris Pine is kinda hot and made it marginally more bearable and it served to remind me why Star Trek is so shitty.

Thank you very much.

Let's just get this out of the way now.

Ok, so.... I like Twilight. *cringe* BUT WAIT!! Don't stop reading just yet. I am not, I repeat, am NOT one of those ridiculous Twilight fans that I like to call Twi-tards. For example, you would not see me in this following picture at any point in time, for anything Twilight related anyway.

I'm not too sure of the context behind what is going on in this picture, but I can only assume it had something to do with the appearance of one of the cast members from the Twilight films. Most are wearing t-shirts emblazoned with either 'Team Edward' or 'Team Jacob' or some other Twilight shirt. At Comic Con I even saw groups of grown ass women dressed like this! In my opinion..... it's just flat out embarassing! Yes, the books are great. I was hooked. I read them all in a day a piece because I couldn't put them down. Which I guess brings up the point that I was a late bloomer when it comes to Twilight fandom. I have had the first book for over 2 years, and just never got around to reading it and then finally got around to it and loved it. Yes, I like the movie. But it isn't the best thing I've ever seen. Yes, Robert Pattinson is attractive, in the movie but not in real life. But I will NOT ever be found in a screaming group of girls going APE-SHIT because Taylor Lautner has just taken his shirt off in the 5 minute clip they showed at Comic Con......... I will spare you the video, it might make your ears bleed.

I will admit, I was kind of excited to see the new footage at the panel in Hall H, but it was ruined by the fact that I could not HEAR over everyone's SCREAMING. And when Tim Burton was onstage during the previous panel he mentioned something about Edward being one of his favorites, as in Edward Fucking Scissorhands and there was even a commotion then! It was totally, and utterly ridiculous!

I hate all the ravenous, stupid Twilight girls. I am not one of them. I am a girl, and I am a Twilight fan, but a Twitard I am not. I refuse to see New Moon on opening night because of those girls. I might need to wait a week or so. And when I'm excited about a movie I always see it on opening night whenever possible, if not a midnight showing.

Now, if this was Star Wars related, and say..... Harrison Ford appeared, it would be an entirely different story.

James Cameron's Avatar

If you have not seen the trailer for what appears to be the amazing Avatar...... you can view it below.

Now. I have to admit. I felt like I had most likely failed at life yesterday when I discovered that this movie is in no way, shape, or form related to Avatar Avatar. I mean, I was present for all 5 days of Comic Con. Surely I'd heard something about Avatar! But alas, I did not. I really wanted to go to the Hall H panel, but my boyfriend almost passed out from lack of nutrients since we hadn't had food for about 6 or 7 hours by the time we got through all the previous panels in Hall H.

I didn't get tickets for Avatar Day, which I'm a little bummed about. I work a 50 hour week so taking time off work to see a 15 min. clip just couldn't really be justified unfortunately. I look forward to hearing what everyone else says about it. The technology that is going into this movie is absolutely astounding. So many new techniques are being put to use in this movie that it's insane and truly groundbreaking. I can't wait to see the finished product!!

Who do you think you are?!

I'm a dork. I also happen to be a girl.

I am not the dorkiest girl on the planet, by a long shot. But who really cares? I'm not an expert on anything, but I do have opinions on everything. So hopefully.. someone wants to read them!!


Always remember, she may not look like much, but she's got it where it counts!
