First heard about Dr. Horrible when we went to “this american life” live couple of weeks back.  You could actually watch Dr. Horrible’s blog on line on Hulu.  It was created by Mr. Joss Whedon, the man behind such cultish shows like: “Buffy the Vampire Slayer“, “Angel“, “Firefly“, and “Dollhouse.”  Really clever and cute and catchy….


Found this retailer on Etsy the other day.  I think these types of personalized items are the coolest thing ever.  The simplicity and the elegance with great design makes these gifts just fantastic.

As I watched the season finale of “big bang theory” with John, I couldn’t believe that one thing that I hate more than anything, okay, that’s not true, just something that really bothers me have invaded one of my favorite show on tv.  SNUGGIES!!!!!!!!!!


The season finale of Fringe was so beautifully and brilliant executed as usual.  The timeless sci-fi question of  parallel universe / alternate universe / multiple universe was addressed in the best way that I’ve seen done in a really long time.  Superman had his Bizarro World and Fringe has it’s “sweet spots” to travel to the alternate universe.  I am beginning to wonder if JJ Abrams is taking this whole alternate universe/time travel a bit too far with his projects since LOST and Star Trek was all over this stuff.  Doesn’t he realize that the die-hard Sci-Fi fans would just eat him alive because it only opens doors for more questions than answers? 


The last scene of the season finale was the revealing of Leonard Nimoy as William Bell and agent Dunham realizing that she was standing in one of the Twin Towers still standing.  New York Post front page indicates that the White House was destroyed not the World Trade center, stock market has been closed for 21 days (from possible attack), and JFK didn’t die in an assassination in Dallas.  Eerie and super cool at the same time.  What a way to end the season!


Mr. Manuel before he got famous

Mr. Manuel before he got famous

This is Mr. Lin Manuel Miranda before his big broadway hit “in the heights’ came out.  He was part of a very unique group called Freestyle Love Supreme.  There was a point in my life when I was obsessed with the guys.  Just saw them perform the other month and they were good as I remember them to be.  But of course, Lin Manuel’s touch/flare to the group was definitely missed.
