That’s just super

3

As hard I made it for you to guess the theme here, it’s superman. I’ve never been a huge fan of the tale. I like my superheroes, like I like my food- hot, spicy with a hint of saucy. Iron-Man RDJ fits the bill perfectly with the playboy, your-opinion-is-irrelevant attitude

.

I am a MARVEL girl, for real. When I was born, the doctors said ‘She’s a marvel this one, you are the luckiest parents alive.’ I also like the Marvel comics. X-Men ftw. My biggest dream as a kid was to be Rogue especially when I started watching X-Men Evolution. She was the brooding face of my earliest blog and continues to be my favorite comic-book character for reasons that probably extend beyond her wardrobe.

Like I said, probably.

Which brings us to Man of Steel or does it? Well before we get to that, I just have like a small subset of the million things I have to say, that I have to list.

Best Lois ever- Erica Durance

Pitbull on a pantleg

Best Lois & Clark ever- Teri Hatcher & Dean Cain

They have Chemistry and Dean Cain is just chilled out and funny and doesn’t spend all his time brooding in a barn.

Hottest Superman or blur or whatever- Tom Welling Hands down

That’s not from Smallville, it’s from when he was an Abercrombie model, but so cute and hot. It can’t be easy to be both those things at the same time.

But here’s a ranking  if you wanna see the contenders or if you’re one of those people who finds Daniel Craig attractive.

Man of Steel- the real story

So my best friend calls me when the movie was still in production and is like ‘OMG WE HAVE TO GO FOR IT!’ and I’m like sure, but why so much enthusiasm, shouldn’t you attempt to curb it and then well:

1.She tells me Henry Cavill is superman. I’m like who is that?

She tells me Henry Cavill is superman. I'm like who is that?

2. After I Google Henry Cavill

After I Google Henry Cavill

3. She tells me Amy Adams is playing Lois Lane

It takes me a while to get over that one.

4. It takes me a while to get over that one 

She tells me Amy Adams is playing Lois Lane

5. We debate what the casting director was thinking and question his/her better judgement about the Amy Adams decision

6. I start watching the movie and Henry Cavill comes on screen 

sooo hot

7. We can’t help ourselves as we watch the culmination of manly perfection despite his terrible acting

low how big he is with sush

8. Amy Adams comes on screen

9. Amy Adams has lines.

rs IT TALKS

10. Then Jonathan Kent has to go and die.

11. Every time Henry went off screen

12. When I realize the guy who plays the good(mostly) Dr.Emil Hamilton on Smallville is playing the Dr’s assistant- Officer Sekowsy, in the movie

omg the mil from smallville is the fake emil s assitant in this movie thatss so fucked up

13. My friend when I point this fact out to her

14. Amy Adams and the sexy new supes start making out almost as randomly as Ron and Hermione in the last Harry Potter movie

amy adams kissing hc

15. I find out that they’re planning on making this a trilogy

say what now

16. Henry Cavill comes back on screen yelling and flying and seemingly devoid of any actual lines

tell me i m pretty

17. Amy Adams starts talking again

no i dont wanna hear it

18. I remember the trilogy thing and ask God WHY they do such things

they will never elanrTHESE GUYS WILL NEVER LEARN. A HOT GUY DOES NOT A MOVIE MAKE.BUT IT DOES MAKE A LOT OF TV SHOWS. THE CW NETWORK IS A TESTAMENT TO THAT.

19. I start praying for mercy and that by some miracle Christopher Nolan will MAKE more Batman movies and not lend a producer credit to “meh”inducers like this movie and start muttering in frustration

why cant you just make more batman

20. Finally, I go to seek solace in galleries of Tom Welling

me at TW

Elementary my dear Spoiler Alert

0

Now in all my years of existence, I have never had a google alert for anything ever. Mostly because I have no idea how to set one, and also because there isn’t really anything I want regular alerts about, except maybe if Ian Somerhalder suddenly finds himself single and/or in need of CPR, but I like to be realistic. That’s why if I ever do set an alert I will set it on “*insert CW network actor’s name here* single and looking for hot Indian love”.

I’ve finally rewatched all 8 seasons of Full House and I have concluded that this is all I want for Christmas:

I’d be okay with the kid too.

The entire month has been one of regret and regression.

  1. I saw the entire 4th season of Scrubs again. Elliot gets more shrill every time and I am left feeling distinctly disappointed that I don’t have someone to do the eagle with:
  2. I started reading the entire Mediator series by Meg Cabot again. Gawd I love Happy Endings( if you know what I mean). Consequently I had a conversation with my great grand uncle, which was really weird because he is still alive and very opposed to talking to “little girls”.
  3. Having read the Mediator series again I realized Jesse whateverhislastnameis from the books must have been inspired by John Stamos as Uncle Jesse. The resemblance is too uncanny to ignore imo unless you are an expert at the art of bliss through ignorance. I am seriously considering taking that course. People go in stupid and they come out happy and intellectually unchanged. Image
  4. Also I finally watched the Breakfast club and my non-arachnid senses started tingling. You see I have this superpower I can identify people who have made cameos in the shows I watch when they show up in other parts, however tiny(that’s definitley not what she said). In fact I saw the tinier the part in the movie/show/whatever/anti-drug ad campaign, the better. SO turns out the Alison character looked super-familiar and I was like WHOA that’s Mr.Yin from Psych. And those were the 5 most exciting seconds( things your girlfriends says about you ) of the whole movie for me. I finally knew what Molly Ringwald looks like and Judd Nelson should definitely consider eating some cayenne peppers and trying to breathe fire. It just might work.

In the spirit of my regression I feel this link about teen/Disney/twins/Amanda Bynes is quite appropriate http://bit.ly/16pEARW

Next on my agenda catch a bunch of Hitchcock movies and actually read The Great Gatsby before I go see the movie next week. Check out this hilarious video I found while trying to find out what the movie was about:

My week in TV

  • Elementary: So far honestly the show has been good, but after Sherlock I wasn’t expecting much. I liked it, but did not love it. The finale changed all that for me. I have two words for you : Irene Alder is Jim Moriarty. HOLY SHIT I DID NOT SEE THAT COMING. I also love the woman they got to play Irene, she is brilliant in it. She went from helpless hellokitty type to ice queen assassin in under 60 seconds and boy did I enjoy the twist I was all like: nooooooooo
  • Seriously though the finale was ohmygawdsoveryawesome. I actually had an impromptu all stuffed animals are invited dance-party for 10 seconds to celebrate the awesomeness.
  • I’m not big on reviewing stuff. If something blows my mind imma tell you.  This week’s Psych was it’s usual amazingness but I love Dule Hill’s AWWWWWWWWWW YEAH so much. He really should host radio. I would listen to that show, you know that’s right. Speaking off which I’ve never heard Howard Stern on air either(just add that to my pop-culturally challengedness).dulee
  • If anyone is actually reading this I would love some suggestions on easily covering the vast extremely well-charted waters of pop-culture.
  • Also check out my piece for the-nri.com http://bit.ly/10FbMRf
  • There’s an awesome new book out by the writers of Psych : Psych’s Guide to Crimefighting for the totally unqualified. I haven’t read it yet but I know I will love it. The Psych writers are brilliant, so very incredibly brilliant. Speaking of books written by writers of Tv shows. I know you guys have heard of Tina Fey’s Bossypants and possibly Mindy Kaling’s ‘Is Everybody hanging out with me”. You should check these books out though they are so hilarious that the milk I drank came out both my nostrils, even the left one which usually doesn’t even let air in(or out).psychs
  • 30 Rock writer Vali Chandrasekaran and The office writer Steve Hely wrote a travel guide which will make Lonely Planet blush. It’s funny, it’s ridiculous and it’s a race between a hare and a bear.
  • Also by Steve Hely of The Office fame ‘How I became a famous Novelist’. The book is definitely funny, not ass hilarious as the Ridiculous race. It kinda sputtered out in the end, going all serious-ish, but worth a read still.
