Did I ever post the YouTube clip of my friend J- giving Doc and Jackson their "Guild of Calamitous Intent" messenger bags at ComicCon? If not allow me to share:

Many things to share very quickly, first [livejournal.com profile] aelfsciene you must watch this by the amazingly talented [livejournal.com profile] wyomingnot, it will make you very happy:

It made me very, very happy. And for those who don't regularly read the [livejournal.com profile] jacksonpublick journal they've posted their annual Xmas goodness (um, spoiler alert for those who didn't see last season's finale, there's a big image on the journal that will kind of give away what happened so, yeah...). Anyway, this year's carol is from 21 and can be found here. It's adorable, of course.

Also dropped off gifts and Merlin eps for [livejournal.com profile] elo_sf and he's already pinged me to tell me he's hooked on the latter. All I can say is AH HA HA HA HA! Yeah, I know, pretty young boys in fantasy garb being ridiculously slashy, not exactly a tough sell, still I'm feeling smug. If anyone has read some good fic in the genre please point me at it, otherwise I'm going exploring myself in a bit.

I've gotta' admit I've been a bit lukewarm on this season's Venture Brothers, but the latest episode The Buddy System kicked some serious ass!

A couple of things behind the cut for spoilers... )

Third season sneak peek of the Venture Brothers, woo!

Comic Con sounds like it was a sweeping success and also that once again the people behind the con and at Adult Swim fail to see just how unbelievably popular this show is. Indeed I'd willingly bet it's the biggest thing they've got and yet they seem to treat the show with roughly the same consideration and savvy as Nick is with Avatar. So we get to wait until June for VB and July for Avatar. Well at least it won't be a dull summer, huh?

In other news I just saw a job posting for VIZ Media and nearly lost my shit. How much fun would that be? Sure a hellish commute, but what a job!

UPDATE: I already heard back from VIZ about my salary requirements...allow me a moment of pure SQUEE!!!

Second, the Flight of the Conchords album is out (thanks J- for letting me know!) and the play list is to die for:

1. Foux du Fafa (Album Version)
2. Inner City Pressure (Album Version)
3. Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenoceros [feat. Rhymenocerous and the Hiphopopotamus] (Album Version)
4. Think About It (Album Version)
5. Ladies of the World (Album Version)
6. Mutha'uckas (Album Version)
7. The Prince of Parties (Album Version)
8. Leggy Blonde [feat. Rhys Darby] (Album Version)
9. Robots (Album Version)
10. Boom (Album Version)
11. A Kiss Is Not A Contract (Album Version)
12. The Most Beautiful Girl [In The Room] (Album Version)
13. Business Time (Album)
14. Bowie (Album Version)
15. Au Revoir (Album Version)

I will own this, oh yes I will.

In other news I looked at one apartment earlier (a little on the expensive side) and I'm making an appointment to see another later today so the housing situation is coming along nicely as well.
ebonlock: (Brock pissed)
Hee! Ok, never been a huge fan of the song, but I have to admit it's damn near perfect for Brock:

ebonlock: (Doc Venture)
Did you know James Urbaniak, the voice of Dr. Venture had a Live Journal? Well he does: [livejournal.com profile] urbaniak! His political posts make me adore him even more than I already did.
ebonlock: (Brock pissed)
Season two DVD release promo here!

And OMG I want to see these two movies soooooo much!

Many thanks to Aelf for pointing me here!

This vid by [livejournal.com profile] mimisoleil for the Venture Brothers to the theme from "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly" is just brilliant:

ebonlock: (teh sex)
You know I don't think I can pick just one quote that I loved from this week's VB ep, so I've thrown down a few of my faves. Of course the Monarch doing a shoutout to LiveJournal was the best moment of the season so far. Lucky, lucky JollyRancher_42, she was right, the Monarch is TEH SEX.

Phantom Limb: Brock Samson. The Venture mule. Do you always hang out naked in the men’s bathroom?

Guild Soldier: (coughing) I think you may have got the kidney. I don't wanna die alone! (cough) Don't...don't go!
Brock: I don't think I hit your kidney.
Guild Soldier: No, no...you totally did! (cough) Please...please! Hold me!
Brock: Look, I'm pretty sure I missed the kidney. I mean, you could bleed to death in like...four hours, but ah..
Guild Soldier: I..I see a tunnel...I'm scared...could you...could you stroke my hair?
Brock: Alright, look...you are not gonna...
Guild Soldier: Well can you sing to me? Could you sing a Technotronic song? Maybe (cough) Pump Up The Jam?
Brock: I dunno..I..
Guild Soldier: What about Move This? Do you know that one?
Brock: (long sigh) ...Baby let me..

Dr. Venture: Why are you naked?
Brock: (panting, covered in blood) To prey on their fear. Move like an animal, to feel the kill.
Dr. Venture: Alright, now you're scaring me. What's going on?
Brock: I dunno. (holds up severed head) But judging from these goggles, it's The Guild. Seems like you made it to the big league, what'd you do?
Dr. Venture: Nothing! I was just sitting here, watching the worst porno ever. Is that a head?

The Monarch: Nice ass.
ebonlock: (Doc Venture)
Ok I just need to say that I finally watched this week's new Venture Brothers episode and it was freakin' awesome. I mean it is now quite possibly my favorite in the series. Though I'm torn about which I preferred, the Intergalactic Inquisitor or their take on an adult Johnny Quest, they both just had me howling.

So messed up.

I love it!

Oh, and best exclamation of horror and surprise ever: "Ladysmith Black Mombasa!"
ebonlock: (Brock)
Dude! They've got all the new episodes of the Venture Brothers available through the iTunes store!!!!

I know I've got them all recorded, but the temptation is strong to purchase them just to make certain that Adult Swim knows just how much we fans love, love, LOVE them!
ebonlock: (Doc Venture)
Just watched the last episode of "Venture Brothers" and I must admit that I'm torn between favorite lines for this one:

"Do you know what I do for a living?" "I don't know, card tricks and birthday parties?"

"All right, virgin, up in front of the target."

"Hank, you and Calligula take the rear...On second thought, Hank you and Freud are together, Calligula, you're on your own team."

"Dean, stop riding the perfect man, Brock has to kill him now."

And can I just say that dropping us into part two of a 3 part story was just brilliant? Oh hey, I just did. Love this show so very much...

Oh, for those interested, [livejournal.com profile] jacksonpublick has posted the titles for this season:

"Powerless in the Face of Death"
"Hate Floats"
"Assassinanny 911"
"Escape to the House of Mummies"

"Fallen Arches"
"Guess Who’s Coming to State Dinner?"
