next_to_normal: Broadway cast of Into the Woods (Into the Woods)
[personal profile] next_to_normal
* The Into the Woods cast is doing interviews. Here's Meryl Streep and James Corden (funny they both mention new songs that ended up getting cut), and Anna Kendrick. Plus, here's a Q&A panel with the whole cast.

Under a cut because I blathered far too much )

* And more reminiscing from the original Broadway cast.

* It's confirmed: Michelle MacLaren will direct Wonder Woman.

* James Gunn has some good points about putting the cart before the horse in developing shared universes.

* Another interview with Natalie Dormer about Mockingjay and Game of Thrones.

* Here's the trailer for next week's Flash vs. Arrow crossover. The cast of both shows also did a Q&A at a special screening of the two episodes - here's part 1, part 2, part 3, and part 4 of the panel.

* I think Matthew McConaughey would make an excellent Randall Flagg in The Stand.

* A series of interviews with Damon Lindelof about the first season of Lost.

* Here's a trailer for Agent Carter.

* The Jurassic World trailer looks hilariously ridiculous. Chris Pratt riding a motorcycle flanked by velociraptors! If at any point during this movie, he actually RIDES A DINOSAUR, automatic five stars.

What I'm Reading:

Scorned & Beloved: Dead of Winter Meetings with Canadian Eccentrics by Bill Richardson

A bit of a romp, backed up by moments of stream of consciousness writing when I lost patience and skipped over segments. I particularly enjoyed the chapter on Professor Charles Henry Danielle who took Newfoundland society by storm toward the end of the 19th century. A very industrious soul who came to the island as a teacher of dance and left this world as a hotelier of the Octagon Castle. He was quite the character indeed.

What I've Read:

When That Rough God Goes Riding:Listening to Van Morrison by Greil Marcus
I think the thing I enjoyed most about this book was being introduced to some of his music I didn't know. Listening to particular versions of his songs while reading about them was a great introduction. (Thank goodness he has avid fans on youtube who have uploaded a lot of his lesser known work.) It's not a particularly good introduction to Van Morrison, but it's an excellent intro to his music which means the book achieves it's goal. Great for fans.

What I'm going to read next:

Something with a plot I think.

DRUSILLA: Come back with me.
SPIKE: To Los Angeles? I've done the whole L.A. scene, Dru. Didn't agree with me. Besides, I've got a sweet little setup here in Sunny-D. Decent digs... not to mention all the tasty townies I can eat.
DRUSILLA: Naughty! Shh. You needn't make up stories. I already know why you're not coming. Poor boy. Tin soldiers put funny little knick-knacks in your brain. Can't hunt! Can't hurt! Can't kill! You've got a chip.
SPIKE: Right, so you've heard. Poor Spike's become a cautionary tale for vampires, right? "You better be good, kiddies, or else they might wire you up someday!"
DRUSILLA: I don't believe in science. All those bits and molecules no one's ever seen. I trust eyes and heart alone. And do you know what mine is singing out right now?
DRUSILLA: You're a killer. Born to slash ... and bash ... and... oh, bleed like beautiful poetry. No little tinker-toy could ever stop you from flowing.
SPIKE: (whispers) Yeah.
DRUSILLA: Ohh.
SPIKE: But the pain ... love, you don't understand, it's ... it's searing. It's, um, blinding. DRUSILLA: All in your head. I can see it. Little bit of ... plastic, spiderwebbing out nasty blue shocks. And every one is a lie. Electricity lies, Spike. It tells you you're not a bad dog, but you are.

ANGEL: You're an idiot, Spike.
SPIKE: You think? Huh, because I'm not the one chained to the ceiling with hot pokers in my side.
ANGEL: You hired a vampire. What do you think he is going to do with the rings when he finds it, huh? Hand it over to you?
SPIKE: Good Lord, why didn't I think of...? Oh, half a mo', I did. I hired a guy who doesn't care about the ring, or anything else on God's green earth except taking blokes apart one piece at a time. It's called addiction, Angel. We all have them. I believe yours is named 'Slutty the vampire slayer.' (The music ends and Spike breathes a sigh of relief) Thank you. Speaking of little Buff, I ran into her recently. Your name didn't come up. Although she has been awful busy jumping the bones of the very first lunk-head who came along. Good-looking fellow. Used her shamelessly. She is *cute* when she is hurtin', isn't she?
ANGEL: I think she's cuter when she's kicking your ass.
(Marcus starts the LP over and Spike sighs.)
SPIKE: I think I will go get a bit of fresh air, leave you two kids to it. (Marcus sticks another hot poker through Angel's thigh, who lets out a short scream) Now THAT'S music.

Food post!

next_to_normal: (choose your weapon)
[personal profile] next_to_normal
I have been remiss in telling you about my culinary adventures! (In fairness, "culinary adventures" miiiiight be overstating it a bit.) Still, this is what I've been baking lately.

Breakfast Apple Pie: Egads, this was a really long time ago, because I made it for a Sunday brunch back in the SUMMER. Oh well. It was still good, so I'm going to tell you about it. It's the oatmeal that makes it breakfasty.

Outrageous Peanut Butter Brownies: I actually made these a while ago, and almost didn't bring them in to work because they were soooo good. But in the interest of not weighing a thousand pounds, I decided to share and all my coworkers loved me for a day. Then the next day, they were like, "What'd you bring us?" because they are greedy, ungrateful wretches.

We are having a potluck Thanksgiving lunch in work tomorrow, so this is what I made to bring:

Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits: We all know the only reason to go to Red Lobster is the biscuits, so now you don't have to leave your house! Not hard to make at all, and tastes even better than the restaurant ones.

Buttermilk Cornbread: The jury is still out on this one. I don't know if it's my oven or what, but these needed to bake quite a bit longer than 15 minutes. Which I did not realize until they had cooled and I cut into them and they were still kinda gooey. (I don't understand, I did the toothpick test and it came out clean...) So I put them back in the oven. We'll see how this goes. Also, I made the "jalapeno" variation, and whoooooo that is spicy. Kinda glad I also made the biscuits, since these may not be to everyone's taste.

Mayor Wilkins: (smiles up at Trick) Do you like Family Circus?
Trick: (seriously) I like Marmaduke.
Mayor Wilkins: (disgusted) Oh! (shivers) Eww! He's always on the furniture. Unsanitary.
Trick: Nobody can tell Marmaduke what to do. (grins) That's my kinda dog.

FRED: We should've done this a long time ago. I don't know what I was thinking letting these books be all unorganized.
LORNE: Well, one does tend to let the housekeeping slide during an Apocalyptolite. Hey, honey, all this to-ing and fro-ing is making me edgy...er.
FRED: What's that?
LORNE: Oh, relax. It's just a buzz saw. Nothing to get worked up over. It's Gunn and Wes down in the basement. They're dismembering that armor-plated demon, Skip.
FRED: Oh, right. Well, there's been an awful lot of dismembering going on in that basement lately, if you ask me.
LORNE: Well, it's been a busy month.
