Lisa B LOVES Fringe and will mourn the end for a long ass time. If you’re not watching the best X-Files-y show since the X Files, you better answer for yourself.
Where do you fall: pro King of the Nerds or not? Kick their ass and take their lunch money or no?
ROBOT WARS! And now: Robot Combat League.
Anthony Bourdain, we still love you. Even with The Taste.

Episode 29 – Feliz Año Nuevo

Welcome to 2013! Wishing you all the best movies, music, TV, books, art in the new year…plus Liam Neeson’s cock.

Recorded 1.11.13

As big fans of Hollywood Babble On, Kevin Smith, and Ralph Garman, the least we can do is share in their affection for Liam Neeson’s private parts. Which, the man himself admits matter-o-factly in an interview, is pretty huge. (For HBO’s “Liam Neeson’s cock is so big…” website gag, check it out! [See what we did there?])
DUDE. Robotech. Fan-made trailer for non-existent movie which – fingers crossed – may happen.
If you’re a hip hop fan, check out The Art of Rap.
Highclere Castle is the Downtown Abbey digs. Tour it! (Or at least check out some beautiful shots.)
King of the Nerds. New TV show on TBS.
We love our local museum: LACMA! Couple awesome exhibits right now, including the Kubrick one.
Games Lisa is playing: The Walking Dead, Little Big Planet. Got any suggestions?

 

Episode 28 – Octopussy!

Miss us? Babies had (!!!), movies and TV watched, expletives not deleted,  panties shed, holidays celebrated…NBD. 

Ralph Garman’s Mom passed away. She will be missed.
Trailers: Pacific Rim, After Earth, Man of Steel, Warm Bodies, Oblivion, Iron Man.
Ian McKellan takes over The Hobbit’s Twitter feed – Ask Gandalf! Did you see The Hobbit? What did you think? Leave a comment!
Watch Live from Daryl’s House!
Palladia TV is awesome. Check to see if you get it – it’s basic cable package in LA.
Downton Abbey returns…do you watch?
If you’re not watching Fringe…you should be.
If you like pretty ladies in various states of undress, and you like Battlestar Galactica, you should definitely own the Acting Outlaws calendar with Katee Sackhoff and Tricia Helfer!
Why didn’t I get to learn about science from the Wu Tang Clan? Such a cool idea.
Don’t miss Bear McCreary’s AMA on Reddit – super good stuff for BSG and Walking Dead fans.

Recorded 8.28.12

Lisa aka TI flew solo to Celebrity Celebrity and got her geek on for a good cause…while totally crushing out on Nathan Fillion, Katee Sackhoff, Michael Trucco, and Josh Homme. As LA Weekly says, “In what may be the most meta-est example of fund-raising parlor games, Largo at the Coronet hosted the Pablove Foundation‘s version of a Celebrity deathmatch last night.” Read more – it was AMAZEBALLS.
Hey, wanna Pinterest-friend us? If you need man-candy, check out Ritzy’s MENS board…Lisa keeps a nerdy board, too.
Ritzy did battle with Periplaneta americana. (Pleased to announce she won.)
The Possession – in theaters now! – is a Sam Raimi film based on a story Lisa found, and in turn made into an awesome story in LA Times by our friend Leslie Gornstein. Recommended reading. Leslie is also on E! (Leslie, I love you and did not need to see the premiere xo Lisa)
“That was pretty fucking ninja.” Great quote from Generation Kill…also in Medal of Honor! Homage!
We love all things Top Chef. On now: TC Masters.
Kill The Noise video. Fucking awesome. Also awesome: Skrillex’s (Skrillexi?) vid for First Year of the Equinox. And he named his label OWSLA…he gains some serious Watership Down cool points for that.
