Fun fact: It takes 5 minutes to fly from LAX to Burbank if you’re already in the air. (On a delayed redirected cursed @virginamerica plane.)

Always fun to start off Monday morning with a 1,000-word look at recent developments in the career of someone I admired immensely as an impressionable youth. Come for the compilation of quotes about why Kevin Smith is self-distributing Red State, stay for the comparison between Kevin Smith and today’s independent web producer!

Don’t know when exactly I can say what it is, but let’s just say that I’m hoping not to pull a Sarah Lacy. (Also, this TOTALLY means I will be at SXSW. VERY EXCITED.)
Got thorough education in Bollywood today, now Wikipedia-ing “X-Men” comics history for @liztellsfrank. Not sure which is more complex.
Thank YOU, @hunterwalk, for doing today’s 5 Questions! Your responses were great. http://dlvr.it/DwZPS
If you’re awesome like me, you’ll be attending tonight’s @cinefamily screening of “Josie and the Pussycats.” In PJs! http://bit.ly/dR0WDJ
I always like to tell this story: I was fucking Christian Bale, Batman, up the...– Ewan McGregor on his experience in Velvet Goldmine (x) Best story ever. I like that he gleefully tells stories about this and dropping his pants. (via turnabout) The thing that takes this from pretty awesome to full on awesome is the fact that he makes sure to identify Christian Bale as Batman.

Me: Baby, I want a laser blaster.
Him: Well, you have to get a Goa'uld first.
Me: Sure, okay. That's a symbiote?
Him: Yeah. It possesses you entirely, though.
Me: Hmm, I don't want that. I want what Dax had.
Him: A Trill?
Me: Yeah. The one from the good show.
The Worst Movie of the Decade, Redux →
meganwest: liztellsfrank: In which the credited screenwriters of this week’s LTFWHI, Battlefield Earth, attempt to shirk the blame for the horror. (Thanks, commenter Sean!) If I had to sit through this damn movie you can go and read a short, pithy Liz Tells Frank segment about it. Seriously, Liz owes me. More than the whiskey and salad I consumed as my due right. Hey, you didn’t...

Awesome job working with awesome people, based out of the SF office. Please pass along to anyone you might know who might be awesome enough for it, and email me at lizshannon at gigaom dot com for details.
Golden Globes: Tracking Ricky Gervais
(A collaborative effort with “Maggie.”) The internet is full of rumors that Ricky Gervais, the purported host of the 68th Annual Golden Globes, disappeared from the third act of the show, possibly since he made fun of Johnny Depp, Angelina Jolie, the president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and/or God. Free from an Battlefield Earth-enduced haze of anger and apathy...

How To Watch "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" Season 1
Get ready for some nerd talk, guys. See, apparently awhile back, I went on some epic rant at Barrett about how the show Star Trek: Deep Space Nine was subversive and revolutionary for its time, eschewing previous Star Trek formula to instead push the limits of multi-arc storytelling in the sci-fi genre — essentially proving to be a training ground for Ronald D. Moore prior to his equally...
So, just out of curiosity, who’s hitting tonight’s @IAWTV meetup? Hoping to make it if work will allow.
So I got some special help for today’s @NewTeeVee web series review — my mom: http://bit.ly/fX5gEG (cc: @hotrodrodda)

Finally watched “Surrogates.” I’m pretty sure it was about bloggers, based on the fact that real people wore pajamas and didn’t shower.
I don’t know what exactly is trying to punch its way out of my stomach right now, but I look forward to meeting it! #ouch #kindahopeitsalien
