Fan Girl Friday

Iiiiiiittttssssss Friday!

And I have scoured the globe (and by globe, I mean internet) and collected the most interesting and intriguing dorky delights to start your weekend off with a bang!

 

The Lego Movie comes out on DVD Tuesday, June 17th! After you head to the store to pick up your copy, pack a lunch in this bad boy and have a movie picnic date with your sweetie!

"Every lunch is awesome!"

“Every lunch is awesome!”

 

 

I don’t know about you, but I am seriously jonesing for some Walking Dead. I’m super sad that we have to wait almost 4 months for it to come back on! And I’m a little terrified that some of my favorite characters may get the Game of Thrones treatment this season. I think I might send a picture of me drinking out of this mug to the producers, just to let them know I mean business.

Seriously.

 

Speaking of GoT, George R. R. Martin has an interesting proposal for you. He is currently raising money for two of his favorite charities, The Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary and The Food Depot, and has made it enticing for YOU to help out!

"Donate or Tyrion gets it."

“Donate or Tyrion gets it.”

If you donate, you are entered to win a bevvy of prizes! Including a helicopter ride with the author at the wolf sanctuary! Give what you can–every bit helps!

 

A few months ago, Huff the Hubs and I were talking about what else–Legos–and discussing how excited we were for Hermione to be old enough to play with them. Then I said, “I wish I could work on the development team….They should make a famous female scientist set of Legos.” So while I was perusing Pinterest the other day, guess what I found? THAT’S RIGHT! My idea! Well, sort of.

"Science girls are awesome!"

“Science girls are awesome!”

Lego will be releasing three different sets of female scientists–an astronomer, a paleontologist, and a chemist–this August! I am so. freaking. excited.

 

And finally, hungry for more Star Wars: Episode VII news? JJ Abrams, that sneaky little sneak, has been posting set pictures on his Twitter account, debunking rumors about a certain ship.

"You've never heard of the Millennium Falcon?"

“You’ve never heard of the Millennium Falcon?”

I ain’t buying it, JJ.

 

Fan Girl Friday

Iiiiits Friday!

I’ve spent the majority of the day carbing up for my marathon on Sunday. And let me tell ya…eating is F-U-N! I think I’m going to list it as one of my favorite hobbies on Facebook after today.

I’ve got gobs of geekery to share with you so let’s dive right in!

First, man-oh-man is there a plethora of movie news out about some highly-anticipated films!

We all know Henry Cavill is Superman and Ben Affleck with be donning the cowl in Zac Snyder’s Superman vs. Batman but it looks as though there’s a third party being thrown into the ring! That would be Cyborg–a character first introduced in the comic book back in 1980–who, after a tragic accident, becomes a mechanized superhero! Fun fact: the actor playing Cyborg has also been rumored to be in the next installment of the Star Wars films!

Where my 80’s girls at? get ready to squeal with joy, because  Jem and the Holograms are reuniting! EEEEEEEE! That’s right people, our favorite Hubba Bubba-hued rockstar is making it to the big screen with a live-action movie titled–what else?–Jem and the Holograms!

jem

If the leading lady looks familiar, its probably because you’ve seen her in such gems (pun TOTES intended) as Sharknado and Ace Venture, Pet Detective Jr. Yes. You read that right.

 

I am counting down the days until the final Hobbit movie makes its debut. However, I may have to re-do the screen print t-shirts I’ve made because P.J. (AKA, Peter Jackson) has decided to change the title from The Hobbit: There and Back Again, to The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. Yeah. I’m serious.

There’s been a tiny, Daryl-Dixon-shaped hole left in my heart since the season finale of The Walking Dead. And its going to be AT LEAST 6 months until I get to see my favorite crossbow-wielding bad boy crack some zombie skulls. But maybe I can find solace with one of these, and snuggle up to it every night while singing Soft Kitty…

Claimed.

Claimed.

 

As I’ve said (about a gazillion times) I’m running a marathon this Sunday! My first (and ONLY) marathon. I’ve got everything I need: GU, running shoes, trashbag poncho in case it rains, but I’m missing something else. What am I missing? Earbuds shaped like my spirit animal: Grumpy Cat. Thankfully, Hot Topic is there for me in my hour of need:

I hate running.

I hate running.

 

Have a great weekend, peeps! And keep your fingers crossed the marathon isn’t a washout!

 

 

What’s a Zombie to Do?

Warning!

{River Song voice}

Spoilers. 

If you haven’t watched the latest episode of The Walking Dead, do not read on. Unless you want some stuff ruined. But really, not that much happened. So I guess you can read on. If you daaaaare!

So far, this season of The Walking Dead has been pretty good. I mean, we finally got rid of Lori whining about everything and sleeping with everyone. We watched as Rick lost his mind and went Chuck Norris on some inmates. We breathed a sigh of relief when Carl left the house and actually did some good. And fangirls everywhere squealed with delight when Daryl cuddled with baby Judith.

After Michonne left Woodbury and Rick’s gang got Glen and Maggie back, I can’t help but feel as though the writers have started taking naps and using pages from the “How to Write for Soap Operas” handbook. I feel like nothing has really moved along and everyone’s at a stand still.

These last three episodes we have left better be some doozies. I want to see the bad guy get taken down and some zombies lose some limbs. I feel like those lifeless biters have really taken a back seat on the show. That’s why when I saw this, I cracked up and thought, “You got that right!”

Here is what I want to see before the season ends:

1. Andrea kill the Governor (and stop walking like an idiot).

I’m sorry, but I can’t stand the way Andrea walks. Her walk is so unbelievably uncoordinated, even the Ministry of Silly Walks wouldn’t give her a job.  She can redeem herself from her ridiculous saunter if she takes out the Governor. I love that Carol told her to give him a night he’d never forget and then kill him. She should’ve done it! Then Daryl could’ve given her a cool nickname like The Black Widow that everyone would laugh about over rainwater and canned peaches.

 

2. Merle save his brother and tell him he loves him with his dying breath.

In season one, I couldn’t stand Merle. Season 2, I forgot about him; but I couldn’t shake this feeling he was waiting in the wings. So when season 3 came along and Merle showed up I found that my feelings…well, the hadn’t changed a bit. Guy’s a douche. Especially after what he did to Glen. However  I do think that like Daryl, Merle will be able to redeem himself. Its obvious Merle loves his brother and would do just about anything for him. My prediction/hope is that Daryl will be cornered by one of the guys from Woodbury, only to be rescued by Merle. I honestly think Merle is going to give his life to save his brother and everyone will talk of Merle like a hero.

 

3. Herschel finds an artificial leg. 

"Let's have some sweet tea and talk about this on the porch."

“Let’s have some sweet tea and talk about this on the porch.”

It really freaks me out that Herschel has only some crutches to keep him up. I mean, seriously, he basically has a sign on his back that reads: “Zombie food, made to order!” I really like Herschel because I feel like he’s the only one that can bring Rick back from his crazy delusions about dead people calling him on the phone. Plus, I feel like Herschel fills the moral compass gap that Dale left when he got himself eaten.

 

4. Rick takes over Woodbury…. 

rick and governor

I’d really like to see the Governor dethroned and Rick take over the town. I think Rick could do a lot of good there. However, that would probably slow down the pace of the show, sort of like the farm did in season 2. However, Shane was still making problems and so was Lori, so season 2 wasn’t a total bust. But still, if Rick took over Woodbury, it’d be  great victory for him, but probably not so much for the show.

 

5. …Or they have to take their chances on the road. 

Seriously.

Seriously.

We didn’t get to see what the winter months were like for the prison folks. All we know is that they were constantly on the move. To be honest, I’ve kind of missed the days when they were constantly look for refuge. I felt like there was more action and zombie-killin’ when they were nomads. Plus, with Judith added to the mix, I could see many a bated breath in season 4.

 

No matter what happens, I’m sure I’ll still stay glued to the tube with at least one eye closed, waiting to see what happens next. Unless Daryl dies. Then I’ll stop watching. Just kidding, I probably won’t. I’ll keep watching just so I can triumphantly say things like, “SEE?! If Daryl were here, THAT wouldn’t’ve happened!” or “Gah! If only Daryl were here, he’d know what to do!”
