Geeking Out for Your Pleasure

It's a historic day, friends. California overturned the gay marriage ban. I think, mostly, I love that California said "Eff you, George Bush and your lame, puritanical ways. We'll marry who we want and you'll like it!" (because can be California very aggressive sometimes. I mean, come on. We have a Governator).

Further adding joy to my day, Bob and Harvey Weinstein are planing a live-action movie musical of Fraggle Rock. I was the biggest Fraggle Rock fan ever (it may have something to do with Red being the coolest character). Yes, I realize my freak-out about this makes me completely insane, but I'm okay with this.

Furthering my excitement, a teaser for Life on Mars, the new series coming to TV this fall based on the BBC show of the same name, if floating around the internets. Check it out:



Ignoring the horrible voice over, this commercial looks promising. I'm hopeful LOM will be more The Office and less Coupling.

My excitement just reached 11.

The ad looks good, but admitting that you love Fraggle Rock or the Muppets adds 30 pounds and 20 zits right away. Just so you know.

You pictured me some other way?

I don't really spend much time picturing anyone - I just assume we're all a little disappointing. Kind of like Journey without Steve Perry.

Pistols, that's probably very, very true.

I LOVE FRAGGLE ROCK!

Prediction: Shia LeBouf will play the head Fraggle, whose name I can't remember.

I'm trying to sing the song, because they say all their names in it...hold on...

The first two are a blur but I remember Boober and Red. WHAT THE FUCK IS THE LEAD FRAGGLE'S NAME??? ARRRGHHH.

I even remember the dumb ass Trash Heap, but I can't remember him. Hobo. Bobo. Gobo. Yoyo. Damn it.

BeckEye said...

Hey, my third guess was the charm. It was Gobo. Thank you, Muppet Wiki.

However, there were 5 main Fraggles, not 4 as I previously thought.

Falwless said...

All I remember from the theme song was, "... down at Fraggle Rock.."

I suck.

Jim Breuer should play the Fraggle that sounded stoned all the time.
