Midweek Tidbits

Greetings! As a new Wednesday feature, I want to introduce "Midweek Tidbits". I will do my absolute best each Wednesday to post some links that I find entertaining to help get you through hump day! Because once we get through Wednesday, it's all downhill from there.

  • Can't get enough Jackie Chan? Word has it that the star is writing a musical about his life. And if that doesn't sound entertaining, I don't know what does.
  • We all know what happens when Tim Burton, Johnny Depp, and Helena Bonham Carter collaborate on a movie: weirdness occurs on a bizarre and grand scale. Think "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory", "The Corpse Bride" or "Sweeney Todd". The trio are reunited once more in Disney's "Alice in Wonderland", and the list of songs from the movie soundtrack were revealed yesterday. Notably, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals cover Jefferson Airplane's "White Rabbit". Trippy, to say the least.
  • The fugly blog is one of my favorite time-wasters and has become a familiar reference in our apartment. The writers of the blog post pictures of celebrities wearing crazy/weird/ill-fitting/inappropriate outfits and then write about them. I visit the blog less for the pictures and more for the hilarious critiques and suggestions. Even Mark recognizes the blog's draw. We were channel surfing the other night and landed on the People's Choice Awards, and this came out of Mark's mouth regarding a presenter's dress: "Ugh, that'll probably be on the fugly blog tomorrow." And sure enough, it was. Hey, someone's got to tell it like it is.
  • Another time-waster (as if we need more): Failbook. Mark and I spent WAY too much time on this site last night. Failbook works the same way as the fail blog, only it posts status updates/conversations from Facebook walls (user-submitted). Some of the posts are pretty inappropriate, but there are some real gems in there.
