I love Hugh Jackman, but…

This looks like the silliest movie ever:

I can’t wait.

Things that are making me infinitely happy–

The Academy Awards have left me inspired, motivated, optimistic, and feeling light and fizzy. Even Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron are starting to grow on me. Anyway, here! look! exciting:

Barbara Walters really should have interviewed Taylor Swift instead of The Jonas Brothers during her Oscars special tonight, but that’s okay because:

klasdjfklajeflkjf!!!!!!

And speaking of the Barbara Walters special, this is literally THE most awkward thing (no, really…it is…), but Hugh Jackman is a dream, regardless:

And, I’m feeling really grateful for the people associated with Milk. I suck for not seeing that film or the majority of the other nominated films from tonight, but fuck yeah to them for bringing attention to Prop 8!

As a sort of intellectual nightcap of sorts I will now retire to bed with the genius of the latest installment of the This American Life podcast.

Final note: Barbara Walters asked Anne Hathaway to finish the statement, “Anne Hathaway is…” and she replied, “Anne Hathaway is happy.” My sentiments exactly.

Big Burly Men and Stuff

Could I BE more excited for X-Men Origins: Wolverine?  No.  I really don’t think I could.  It comes out May 1, 2009, which is relatively soon, when you don’t think about it too much.  I’m so ecstatic that they’re making this movie because, first of all, X3 was a huge disappointment.  I went through this phase where I decided to purchase all of Hugh Jackman’s movies on DVD (I own Kate & Leopold, Swordfish, Someone Like You, X-Men, X2, and Oklahoma!), but I really have no urge to own that film.  It doesn’t do any justice to…anything.  Ellen Page is pretty cute in it, though.  Walking through walls and big, burly men and stuff.

Anyway, this trailer better not be more exciting than the final product:

Good job with the ending.  All trailers should end with someone threatening to cut off Liev Schreiber’s head. 

I also think it’s hilarious that IMDb lists Ryan Reynolds in the cast.  Not to get all six-degrees-of-Kevin-Bacon, but Hugh Jackman was in Woody Allen’s Scoop with Woody’s much-used Scarlett Johansson who just married Ryan Reynolds who used to be involved with Alanis Morissette who played God in Dogma.  That’s enough.  I just wanted to mention Alanis because it would be the best Christmas present ever if she started writing angry songs again that are good.  And this time they would be about Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett instead of Uncle Joey and whoever’s back he was scratching his nails down.

Of course he's an asshole--his last name is French. (Mine is, too.)

Botched abortions and projectile vomiting. Or something else entirely.

Don’t you love going to a movie and being like, “HEY!  That’s the girl who played Patrick Swayze’s dance partner who had the botched abortion in Dirty Dancing!”  Or, “That’s the chick who played the ghost that projectile vomits all over Haley Joel Osment in that Bruce Willis, ‘I see dead people’ film!!”  Okay, no one would say that.  They’d just say something like, “Oh.  Mischa Barton.  Who cares.” 

I saw Australia yesterday and was so excited to be able to do that regarding this guy: 

I can’t believe Rachel Ward and Bryan Brown are married when Luke was such an asshole to Meggie in “The Thorn Birds“.  Anyway, Bryan Brown who played evil Luke, the man Meggie marries to try to get over Father Ralph de Bricassart, plays the evil cattle baron King Carney in Australia.  I think it’s worth seeing for two reasons:

1.  

 

 

 

 

  

 2.

 

 

 

 

 

One last thing.  On the subway home from seeing the man above, I saw the woman below.  She had a cold, she was studying a textbook, and she was so cool:

Fiona Apple!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Fiona Apple!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’ve Been So Happy Since Tuesday Night

THIS is why I love the ridiculous genius that is The Onion. Right after I devote a post to the time-space continuum, they go and devote an article to not only the time-space continuum, but to how “skyrocketing consumer prices coupled with stagnant wages have forced many Americans to work a fourth shift in another dimension in order to make ends meet.” It’s so silly and satirical and subversive and it makes me so happy.

I read it on my commute home from work yesterday/earlythismorning and probably disturbed quite a few 3am Flushing-bound subway sleepers. I never officially announced not being unemployed anymore, but that’s just because I still kind of feel poor and unsure of everything. I’ve been thinking about taking the GREs, but that requires something like $140 and…I don’t even know what I want to go back to school for or when or even if. I’ve entertained ideas of getting my master’s in a different country. Canada, Australia, or North Korea. Still deciding. Australia has Hugh Jackman, but North Korea has this guy–

Too gorgeous for his own good.
