Random Acts of Pop Culture - "You didn't hear about the polar bear?"
Random Acts of Pop Culture|
It finally happened. I'm watching TV, and two commercials showed in a row: the visine commercial with Ben Stein... followed by the Dish Network commercial with Ben Stiller that recreates the scenes from "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" (the "Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?" scene). Now THAT was wierd. *L*!onecheekyhobbit
, have you seen "The Omen" yet, to catch your favorites, David Thewlis (in the David Warner part as the news photographer) and Liev Thewlis (in the Gregory Peck role as the father)? *G*
I saw the preview for it, and I want to see it, even though, I don't think I'll like it.
Yes... it's actually written by the same person who did the original, so it's more of a re-creation using current actors, rather than a new look at an old classic. But I loved David Warner's role, and I can so see Thewlis in it. I'd like to see it for him.
If you see it before me, tell me how he was...
(*G* I actually got a crush on David Warner when I saw the original; thats why I remember that role so well = *L*!)
I'm glad to see Ben Stein out there earning a bit of dinero. He's such a brilliant guy.
*G* Can't believe you have an icon for this!
Oh, I have a few Ferris icons! He's my hero.
*G* Come on up to Chicago some time and we can do a Ferris Bueller tour together!
I don't have time, unfortunately. I haven't seen any movies since... I can't remember. Brokeback, I guess.
Too bad. This would have lots of Liev, since he's the main character, but I heard his performance described as a bit too low-key.
Did you know Stephen Colbert's balrog clip is up on that site? http://www.comedycentral.com/shows/the_colbert_report/videos/most_recent/index.jhtml
It's the "search for a new black friend" one.
"BALROGS are MAIAR who refused to serve ERU and instead followed MORGOTH into THANGORODRIM! Get your facts straight, CNN!"
No, Colbert, you get YOUR facts straight. Balrogs are Maiar refused to serve Eru and followed Morgoth into UTUMNO. It's the Eagles in Thangorodrim, you noob.
Hee, that just made me feel like a total geek.
He calls them "maulrogs" once, I'm using that word from now on.
You ARE a total geek, oh geeky one! *G*

WHAT?!?!?!?!?!?! It's OUT??? THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I would have given just about anything to be there... *sigh*
awwww I know and I'm sorry babe :( But sounds like this is just the beginning for him, so hopefully you should get the chance to catch him soon!
Oh, I mean:
*L*!!!!! Thank you!
REALLY appreciate it! I was doing my niece's photos all night and never got on LJ, so it would have been ages before I found it. *S*
not a problem, I like to keep people informed of their fandom :)
