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 and lilithlotr, 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.

I'm glad to see Ben Stein out there earning a bit of dinero. He's such a brilliant guy.

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.

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*
