My offering to DW today is a couple of "unreleased" tracks from the Aladdin soundtrack, which are pretty hilarious.

- "Call Me A Princess"
- "Why Me?"
- "Humiliate the Boy"

Awesome.

This is a clip from an 80s Winnie the Pooh live-action television show, where Pooh and Piglet sing a musical number about how you shouldn't let people touch you in a not-okay way.



... actually I think it's pretty comprehensive and well done. But. So strange to hear coming from Pooh.

Instead of adapting the newest sentai series, ABC is airing Mighty Morphin Power Rangers in 2010, and Bandai is bringing back MMPR toys.

I really want to bring my mini-van to DC despite the fact that I would only use it to go to:

1. The grocery store.
2. The mall.
3. Northern Virginia?
4. Baltimore for the LSAT?
5. ... Long Island for Easter?

But. But.

Ode To Driving A Car.

Cars are convenient and easy and wonderful. You don't have to sit next to smelly hobos. You can tell the people in the back to shut the fuck up if they start raving like the crazy people on busses. You can eat in your car.

A car is always on time, and that time is "whenever I'm ready to leave." You never miss your car. When you're planning a trip, you say "It takes X amount of time to get there," not "it takes ten minutes to get from my place to the bus, then twenty minutes on the bus to the metro, then five minutes on the metro, then another ten minutes on a different metro, and then five minutes to walk to where I'm going -- and I'd better pad in at least ten minutes on each leg of the trip in case something goes wrong!" No! You just go "It takes X amount of time to drive there"!

A car doesn't run on a limited schedule on the weekend. A car doesn't stop running at three in the morning. A car doesn't drop you off two blocks from where you live, so you never have to trudge back with all your groceries, or freak out because it's the middle of the night and you're heading home alone.

And you can listen to NPR in the car.

Driving my car to DC would probably cost as much in gas as a plane ticket would. Insurance would probably be more expensive than paying delivery fees from the grocery store and taking public transit. Parking places costs money. I drive a big Honda Odyssey, and the streets in DC seem small to me... but still...

I wanna bring my car to school.

Coverlet.

My mom and I are vaguely shopping for coverlets (and pillows for my bedroom, and a suit for me). We walked into Pottery Barn and found this.



I wasn't allowed to get it.

"Contains mild drug themes" is my favorite.

Grand Central, part of the publishing conglomerate Hachette, has pounced on Grahame-Smith, signing him up for a two-book deal reported to be worth more than half-a-million dollars. [...]

The first book, said Greenberg, will be Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, "a presidential biography in the vein of a Doris Kearns Goodwin or David McCullough, but repositioning the president as the greatest vampire hunter to walk the earth". Unlike Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, there is no source material, so the novel will be all original writing. "But rather than just toss vampires in wherever he feels, Seth is doing a lot of research to see where they could fit in properly to the actual events of Lincoln's life – from childhood on," said Greenberg.

As a note to everyone I game with, I will be scarce! Because... I am staying with people who don't have wifi, though I'm totes capable of plugging my laptop into their router lol. THANKS FOR THE HEADS UP TO BRING AN ETHERNET CABLE, DAD'S OTHER COUSIN.

But hahaha oh god, these two kids -- my second cousins? -- that I'm staying with are so cute. One is a seven year old girl who told me all about the exciting lives of her dolls. The other one is a nine year old boy who is ridiculously impressed that I know what YouTube is, and who proceeded to show me ALL THE COOLEST THINGS ON YOUTUBE, including:

1. Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny
2. Some Weird Al song about homicidal Santa
3. Weird Al's "Yoda"

And then we played Lego Star Wars. As a side note, how have I never played this game before? Leia and RotS!Obi-Wan killing battledroids together is godly. This kid is five years behind the times but also my hero.

Oh my god there is a Thomas the Tank Engine Wiki.

EDIT SORT OF RELATED TO CHILDREN:

Jon Gosselin might soon be minus Kate & 8. The reality star show has been busted cheating on his wife and RadarOnline.com has obtained an exclusive video interview with a man who saw Jon romantically kissing another woman.

David Reitnauer, a security guard at a Pennsylania motel, says Jon shows up frequently and goes to the bar “Legends.” Reitnauer caught Jon kissing a woman in a stairwell and describes what happened that night in this exclusive video.

His interview follows another published report that identifies the woman as third grade teacher Deanna Hummel. Her brother tells Us Weekly that Jon and Deanna have been having a three-month affair has been intimate with her at their Reading, Pa. house.
