Links of the Day

Lego Zombie Apocafest 2009 - Clink the link for pictures of the Lego Zombie invasion of a Lego City. Of note is the invaded Carnival, troops getting trucked in and various attempts at defense as the Zombies march to consume some brains. The display is part of BrickCon, a Lego convention.

Nicole Eggert Back in Baywatch - The star of Charles in Charge, Baywatch and childhood crush of many in the 80s, has grown up and to me remains gorgeous. Apparently to others that is not the case as this amusing video with the actress shows.

New 2012 Trailer - Click the link for a new trailer for the disaster movie that is coming out in late November. The movie clearly follows the formula of friends/family attempting to survive a disaster. All I care about is the CGI effects where things get destroyed in spectacular fashion. Overall, it’s shaping up to be a visual interesting (but probably plot and character empty) movie that makes for perfect escapism.

Fall TV Update - The Fall TV season is not even a month old but already some signs of who will live and who will die is starting to become clear. In the survival department is Glee, The Cleveland Show, NCIS: LA, Good Wife, Modern Family, and Cougar Town which all now have full season orders. On the cancellation fence is Hank, The Middle, and Community. In great danger is Eastwick, Brothers, Accidently on Purpose, The Forgotten and Melrose Place (which will probably stick around to see if Heather Locklear can save the day again).

An Actual Democrat with Balls - 8th District Democrat Rep. Alan Grayson is shaping up to being the ideal Democrat that American's want but can't seem to find as he shows some actual fire and spine as he chastises his fellow Democrats for bending over backwards to accommodate Republicans who have shown repeatedly they are not receptive to those efforts. He also takes Republicans to task for their clear view that corporate America is their one and only concern and not the welfare of the American people. While his speech likely fell on deaf ears, it is something worth listening too.
