Wild Wounded Woman Down...

Last night Stormy Knight and I took our friend Crystal Medberry to the emergency medical center because she got hurt at work. While working at Hot Topic Crystal was injured when a metal rod fell from an 8ft ladder on to the side of her head and gave her a 1 inch gash. Needless to say she told me she didn't need any stitches and she ended up with 2 staples. When I am right, I am right. Anyway here is a nice picture to get the idea. The orange coloration on her scalp is iodine.

Webisode W.O.W...

Check out "The Guild" on YouTube or Myspace. Hilarious World of Warcraft jokes. It's about a girl who's addicted to a MMORPG and can't shake her gaming habit. Only 3 webisodes at this point, but it is just so well done. Gamers will love and appreciate it. stormy concluded that it had a Strangers With Candy quality about it.

The Angelina Jolie Hands-Free Multiple Child Carrier...

I love Angelina Jolie and thought this was a hilarious parody advertisement for her.

"Angelina Jolie recently announced she has filed papers to adopt yet another exotic overseas orphan. Faced with the burden of carrying so many children while traveling the world for humanitarian reasons, Jolie commissioned a designer to create a stylish transport to fit her unique needs. The Angelina Jolie Hands-Free Multiple Baby Carrier is a sleek device that carries up to four children and features diaper storage, a bottle and sippy cup holder, an insulated snack compartment, and retractable toys. Best of all, the carrier allows Angelina to keep her hands free to pick up other orphans that might catch her eye. Available by special order only, but hurry, there's a growing wait list. Madonna has already placed her order and other celebrities are likely to follow."

Mandy Moore Under My "Umbrella"...

I went to see Mandy Moore at the Palace Theater in Greensburg on Friday September 21, 2007. It was the best concert that I have ever been to in my life and I am not kidding. She put on a hell of a show. My personal favorite moments were when she played the guitar for the first time on stage and also when she covered the song "Umbrella" by Rihanna. It was amazing. Here is a video of her doing that cover. I plan on blogging more about Mandy soon and my experience in detail, but for now here is a taste.

Rachel Yamagata Rocks...

She was one of Mandy Moore's opening acts and was amazing. I would call her a mix between Meredith Brookes and Paula Cole. Very angry and sad music. Heavy on the guitar as well.

Fewer Gay Characters On Broadcast TV, But They're Thriving On Cable...

GLAAD's annual report on gay characters is out (pun intended), and the news is mixed: There are fewer gay regulars featured on broadcast TV (a total of seven, most of them on ABC) than last year. And only one on a new show (ABC's Cashmere Mafia, coming midseason). Cable, meanwhile, features 40 gay characters as series regulars (many on Showtime's The L Word, not surprisingly, but also in less-expected places, such as The N's South of Nowhere).

“In the last year, we've seen a tremendous amount of visibility on the big screen, reaching a large audience anxious to see our stories,” GLAAD President Neil G. Giuliano said. “The networks, though, are not tapping into this audience and are failing to represent the reality and the diversity of their viewers and the world around them.”

These figures apparently only include characters who are out, so the numbers (which add up to 1.1% of broadcast TV characters) may turn out to be a little low. NBC's Law & Order, for example, had a lesbian prosecutor from 2001-2005, but the audience didn't know she was gay until she made an out-of-left-field reference to her sexual orientation just before departing the show.
