Finally, a Fletch I can get on board with

I know it's been a while. For the 5 of you out there that read this, greetings from the beyond.

Busy busy lately with the launch of Alli Arnold Art as well as topFIVEdesign. Still playing in my weekly poker game and still losing on bad hands. I would regurgitate last night's, but it's too painful.

Seen a few movies. Hostage is really dark...like a dark Die Hard. Hitch was funny. Predictable, but funny. The NCAA tournament has been abysmal for Jayhawkers like myself. Bucknell? Really? And these so-called "classy" seniors can't manage to shake the hands of the team that flat-out outplayed them? I expected more.

And then there's this. I have complained before about how I think that Jason Lee would have been great, but Zach Braff...he's so hot right now. Hansel. So hot right now. Scrubs is one of my favorite shows and Garden State was a terrific movie, one that should have been more acclaimed than it was last year. At least he won an Independent Spirit award and a Grammy for best Soundtrack. I think he is a rising star in Hollywood and I look forward to all that is coming from him. Would love to see him as Fletch. Or Ryan Reynolds. He would be good too.

UPDATE: Kevin Smith has confirmed that they (Braff and him as well as him and Weinstein) have spoken about it and all are excited about it...I am excited!

And work screeched to a halt...

The internet is broken.

At least it is here at work. Since all of our work sits on a network drive (for backup purposes) and our e-mail system, which sits on the mother-of-all-network-suckages, Lotus Notes, is inaccessible. There are things that I could be doing, but not much.

Isn’t it funny how dependent we have become on this minor thing called the Internet? There are those out there who feel our dependence on technology may eventually be our downfall (hello, Terminator!), but I still think it’s a good thing.

Which is why, now that our network is back up, I’ll get back to the things I was working on. Have a nifty day.

Television Awesomeness.

Brian says it best here.

JJ Abrams is the new Joss Whedon.

Although I was never a huge fan of Buffy or Angel or those shows, it was hard to deny their popularity or originality. I don't really want to see Jennifer Garner bust out in song like the Buffy musical (although she has sung on the show before), I would be more than happy for Alias to have the longevity that Buffy had over the years.

And LOST. What can you say about LOST. Such a good show. Brings me back to the first season of Alias in its originality. Chills went up my spine at the end of Wednesday's episode. The numbers bring back everything that was awesome about the Rambaldi storyline. While they've abandoned the crazy Italian Prophet this season on Alias somewhat, I expect him to come back in a big way during the second half of the season.

Sark on the loose? Awesome. This show needs more Sark.
