New Professor Layton game

I am getting quite excited about the upcoming Professor Layton game which is slated to be released in late August! This is going to be a tragic time suck. Must get more sleep now in preparation.

Yay, Better Off Ted

New episodes of Better Off Ted will air starting June 23rd! I'm very excited we won't to wait until mid-season to see more episodes! This is one of maybe three shows that Totoro watches so you know it must be good!

Mandy Moore has a new album out! And Entertainment Weekly's blogger kind of likes it. I might have to check it out. 70s inspired folk pop is right in my wheelhouse.

DWTS dishonesty?

The Woz claims that the "bottom 2" from last night's show didn't really represent the bottom two vote getters and that his continued presence on the show was already assured. Interesting. Although I'm curious how he knows/thinks he has such a large voter base. Is it all Valleywag/Gizmodo fans?

DWTS injuries

People are already dropping like flies on Dancing with the Stars. Jewel and Nancy O'Dell have dropped out of the competition with two fractured tibias and a torn meniscus, respectively. Maybe that set is cursed.

Red Bull B-Boy Competition

I missed this quick mention of the Red Bull B-Boy Challenge airing on MTV last weekend, but it's airing again tonight on MTV2, so I'm going to check it out. I recently watched Planet B-Boy, and it was awesome so I'm looking forward to this.

Ghosts of Girlfriends Past

I'm not sure what to do here - this movie stars my personal silly girl Kryptonite (Jennifer Garner), but she's with skeezy dude, Matthew McConaughey. Should I see it or not? The trailer has actual moments of kind of cuteness and some moments of tragedy. The ghosts in the movie seem pretty unfortunate. I'll have to wait for the trailer to decide whether I'm just going to cast doubts and common sense aside and just see this.

P.S. Isla Fisher was so cute in Definitely Maybe that she might become another star who I'll see in anything.

The Jabbawockeez are in a new Gatorade commercial. I guess they are doing okay for themselves post-ABDC.

cc2 mentioned that I had missed a key announcement in the DWTS link earlier this week - Chelsie Hightower from SYTYCD will be one of the pros on DWTS. They certainly are stacking the cast with cute young things. Lil' Kim will be with Derek Hough. Yikes. And Mark Ballas will be with Shawn Johnson.

Awesome, Hulu uses newspaper ads to get viewers, giving them a large percentage of viewers over the age of 55.

Dancing With the Stars casting

Julianne Hough will be dancing with her boyfriend, country singer Chuck Wicks in the next season of Dancing with the Stars. Julianne had previously said she would not be returning to DWTS, but I guess the producers figured out how to get her back... Dance with your boyfriend! I guess there won't be rumors of showmance! I wonder who gynmast Shawn Johnson will be paired with; she and Derek Hough would be pretty adorable.

17 Again

Zac Efron and Matthew Perry are in a movie that looks like a retread of Big - Matthew Perry is 37 (really?) and his life is falling apart and then he magically gets turned into 17 year old Zac Efron. The trailer actually looks marginally entertaining. Marginally.

More Leverage

Via popcandy, 'Leverage has been renewed for a second season. I know totoro has been watching this show as well. My interest has varied on this show, but I'm still watching so far.

ABC gives green light to 'Let It Go'

ABC greenlit Lauren Graham's new pilot, but the plot - about a self-help guru who doesn't follow her own advice, sounds a lot like Heather Graham's failed show, Emily's Reasons Why Not, which bit the dust after only one or two airings.

Netflix + HBO

It looks like Netflix might be investigating streaming HBO Shows for $10. I don't think I'd be interested in this until there's a can't-miss show airing, but I'd be more inclined if it's easy to subscribe/unsubscribe and if I don't have to deal with Comcast in order to add/remove the service. I can't remember if Comcast also charges a fee to change your service, but the fact that I think they might is a deterrent to adding HBO... My dream of getting rid of cable is that much closer!

Taylor Swift concert tour

Taylor Swift's new concert tour "will feature graphics, sets and other visual elements—including an illuminated fairy tale-like castle—designed by the singer herself". But will it have a unicorn? If so, I'm there!


Dancing with the Stars dancers Mark Ballas and Derek Hough will release their band's first album on March 10, just in time to promote it on the new season of DWTS. I guess I'll have to check it out on iTunes and see if it's worth buying.
