This video has been making the Interweb rounds this week. It’s actress Emma Stone appearing on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. In the clip, you’ll see Emma completely nail it the two songs she lip-synchs. Fallon is pretty good, too, and you have to love the choice of “Mr. Roboto.”

Doctorin’ the TARDIS March 16, 2013

So, I finally am caught up on Dr. Who and, yes, I am another statistic. I love the series. Back when Jason first introduced me to Doctorin’ the TARDIS by The Timelords I knew of the series and a little bit about the history of the show but at the time I hadn’t actually seen any of the episodes. After a bit of coaxing from a few fans and a bit more from a few of my friends who were huge fans, I decided to give it a watch. I started with Christopher Eccleston who is, so far, my favorite Doctor and watched all the way through David Tennant and as far as I could get through Matt Smith. The Tennant/Smith transformation made me weep like a child and because of the Weeping Angels, I can never visit the Statue of Liberty.

Now I’m heading back to the first Doctor and am watching those episodes all the way through. I’m also watching the spin-off “Torchwood” with Captain Jack Harkness. If you haven’t watched Torchwood, I would totally bypass the first season… or at least watch it with the understanding that it is terrible but will set up some main points that will carry over. I mean, really… a cyberwoman in the basement for months and nobody noticed!?

After all of that, it’s off to the Sarah Jane Adventures.

I haven’t been into a series like this since Star Trek… and yes, you have to suspend your disbelief with a few episodes… after all, we are dealing with a big ball of wibbly wobbly, timey wimey stuff. However, like Star Trek, Dr Who and Torchwood both delve into the human condition. Apart from a few non-PC jokes here and there, that’s the part I enjoy the most.

The reason I post about Dr. Who is because I ran into this on youtube… it is a video of Doctorin’ the TARDIS by The Timelords.

Allons-y!

Kim Wilde Is Awesome! December 16, 2012

Kim+Wilde

I mentioned on last night’s show that “my long lost cousin” Kim Wilde had a video taken of her on a London subway train earlier this week, performing “Kids In America” (and part of “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree”) with her brother Ricky (he’s the one with the guitar). And, yes, it is pretty obvious that she is drunk. Kim and her brother (who, if you don’t know, has always been part of her band) had just attended a Christmas party held at the MagicFM Studios, where she records a radio show called “Secret Songs.”

I absolutely love this video:

1. Reindeer antlers!

2. As I said, Kim is obviously drunk (for evidence, she gets awfully slurry at times), but who cares?

3. She and Ricky are also obviously having fun, as is everyone else on the train–with the possible exception of the two clowns on the left.

4. Kim sounds great–even though she’s “over refreshed” (as she put it on Twitter later that evening).

5. Since the video was posted & gone viral, Kim has had a good time with it on Twitter, including thanking people for all of the positive messages they’ve sent to her.

6. How cool would it have been to be on that train? (HINT: Damned cool!!)

I’ve been a fan of Kim’s for nearly 30 years–first for her music, and even more so because in every interview or public appearance I’ve seen from her, she has come across as a down to earth, fun gal. And this is even more evidence of that.

Happy Christmas, Kim!
