You'll believe a man can fly. Again.

Yes, my dear sinners. HE's back. He flies. He looks pretty a-m-a-z-i-n-g. Yes, it's not the trailer, it's just a short Coke promotional commercial, but still, it will help to ease the pain 'till we get to see the real deal. Enjoy. Superman Returns , sinners.

L'amour! Crepes! Secret agents!

Just when I was about to accept that God hates me, Rob, my dear old friend gave me some great news... Are you ready? Well... The new JAMES BOND TEASER is finally here, sinners!!! And it looks sooooooooo cool (even though it's in French, hehe)
So, today, I reached two conclusions:
1) Casino Royale will be awesome, even though some puritans still think it's a bad idea to cast Craig. By watching this teaser you can star appreciating that Craig is perfect for the role of a younger Bond, just starting in the business. He gets dirty. He bleeds. Yet he's still the man for the job. It looks like a pretty well done movie, with great special effects, lots of action, explosions, and stuff that will sure keep all of us, damn Bond junkies hooked up even more with the franchise... And my second conclusion of the day..
2) Today, God doesn't hate me. I just realized he just has a damn weird sense of humor. I guess HE's been pretty bored lately. *sigh*

Doctor, Doctor give me the news, I've got a bad case of loving you (8)

I guess no one remembers that song... Hm.. .Anyway, something incredible is happening. I'm really liking this Doctor. After being introduced to the world of Doctor Who by Chris Eccleston, I never thought I could possibly accept someone else. I But I guess I was wrong. Even though I miss the maniac, hyperactive Eccleston, David Tennant has proved me that he too can have a place in my little and tender heart. Tooth and Claw, the second episode of Tennant as the Doctor (or third if you count Christmas Invasion), shows a happy, funny, childish yet inventive Doctor, that along with Rose, saves Queen Victoria from The Empire of the Wolf (or in other words gets rid of a big bad werewolf). What about Billie Piper? She has grown as an actress since the days of "Rose". I like watching her on the show (I can't say the same thing about Mickey...grr) What I'm most amazed about this season is to see good special and visual effects, CGI, good directing and lots of extras. Maan.. They really have budget now!
So, in all, I can't wait to see the next episode School Reunion, with no other than Buffy's Anthony Stewart Head (aka Giles). Plus... K-9 (I'm not sure if that's a good thing...sigh). Seems it's going to be something worth watching. =)
Damn it. I'm an addict.

Oh yeah. Sexy papa Kent.

What can I say? He's sexy, funny, sexy, handsome, sexy, strong, cute... Did I mention he's extremely sexy? Yes, my dear sinners, John Schneider. Ex Bo Duke. Ex Papa Kent.
Mr. Marshmallow , Mighty Pulgoso (the other cutie in the picture, yeah the one with the red cape) , Omnipotent Puedquito and I met the guy at the Brisbane's Supanova Pop culture expo, and let me tell you he's funny, entertaining and really nice with the fans. He didn't seem very happy with the idea of leaving Smallville, but what the hell. He's making independent movies now. Oh, and I'm sorry to say that I also got a picture with him. So sue me. He's one of the cutest guys I've seen in my life. Actually, I think I'm in love. =)

Puedquito and Pulgoso's adventures in the city

Mighty Pulgoso (left) and Omnipotent Puedquito (the one in pink) decided to go out today and got to meet a really nice guy named Phil Jimenez, artist and writer of comics such as Wonder Woman and Infinite Crisis. Hopefully, Phil will get inspired and make them part of the next issue of Infinite Crisis. I'll keep my fingers crossed. =)

Time to learn Chinese!

Two good reasons to go to the 2008 Beijing Olympics:
1) It's where, in theory, La Banda (the gang, my beloved friends from Numbtown) will meet again since each one of us will be living in a different continent very soon.
2) And because Lord Almighty STEVEN SPIELBERG and Zhang Yimou (Hero, House of a Thousand Daggers) will be designing the opening and closing ceremonies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Can you even imagine how interesting, creative and out of ordinary this will be?? I WANT to be there. It's official: Ms. Mysterious has a mission, sinners!


Oh, grandmother what big *beep* you have!

Really, have men no sense of proportion? Look at the size of those two things! Each of them is the size of her head! You could play bowling with them! Or bounce with them to the moon and back! On the other hand, you would arrive before anybody else to your appointments. Villains would choke to death if they were between those two things. Or you could cause international panic when people confuse your "attributes" with two planets approaching earth. Of course you have to be careful enough not to trip with them. Or fall forward. Whatever. Baad Joe Benitez, baaad.

To life!

Perchik: Money is the world's curse.
Tevye: May the Lord smite me with it. And may I never recover

Don't you just love how movie quotes become part of your life? Oh, the magic! The wisdom!
So, you'll never guess what play I went to see this afternoon. I'll give you a hint. It involves a fiddler, and he's on a roof most of the time.
*BUUUUZZZ!* Yes, my dear sinner! Your answer is correct! I went to see Fiddler on the Roof! But wait, that's not all! Guess who was playing Tevye? *BUUUUZZZZ!* Yes, Topol is the correct answer!(2 points for you, well done)
But let's rewind a little bit. For those of you who have no idea what I'm taking about, run to the nearest video store and rent the 1971's movie Fiddler on the Roof, directed by Norman Jewison, winner of 3 Oscars back in 1972, for best cinematography, best sound and Best Music, Scoring Adaptation and Original Song Score, by no other than god John Williams. The story is about a Jewish milk man and how he copes with his family, his traditions and the constant changes in the world. Or something like that. Damn it just watch it.

And what about the play I went to see? Excellent. 30 years later, Topol still sings, dances and acts like when he first did the movie. The rest of the cast do a great job also, especially recreating dancing sequences such as the one of the bar (To life) and the one in Tzeitel's wedding (The bottle dance - those guys are just hypnotizing). I tell you, it was a great experience, even though there are no surprises for someone who has seen this movie like 40 times and that knows all the dialogues and songs by heart (and by someone I mean mainly myself).

I can't complain, it was a great day (I also went to the spa. Mr. Marshmallow invited me. Hollowed be thy name!). I know, the whole spa- theatre thing sounds way too posh and aristocratic. Hey, a girl can have a couple of days like that from time to time, don't you think? I need to relieve the tensions of my unemployed life *sniff*

To life, sinners! Sleep tight.

It is time...

This is the time to decide, sinners. To choose whose side are you on. I know this is difficult, but sooner or later you have to make the choice.
Maybe after watching this video, the decision will be much simpler.
Are you ready? Because this is the moment of truth. The day earth's fate will be decided. The question is...
Are you a cats or dog person?
Undecided after watching that CUUUUUUUTE little cat? Do you still think that dogs are better? Smarter? Tougher? Well my dear sinner, then take a look at this other video. This is what your precious dog would do to a cat. Absolutely nothing.
So, besides our very own plush dog, Mighty Pulgoso, dogs are idiots, and as Neil Gaiman wisely said in A Dream of a Thousand Cats (from The Sandman series), cats will inherit the earth. Again.

Remember sinners, Superman knows what's good for you!

*Ms. Mysterious runs to the fridge and drinks all the milk she can find*
Hey, he is Superman after all! He can be pretty convincing...
By the way, Mr. Marshmallow and I were thinking... Superman wears his costume under his regular Clark Kent clothes right? Can anyone tell me where the hell does he hide his boots?
Oh, another unsolved mystery of life...


Counting the hours to watch Doctor Who's. brand new episode... Oh, the pain, sinners! The pain!!!!

Where have all the cowboys gone?

There was a time back in Numbtown when I basically stopped reading comics. Why? No money, no trips to the USA, no place to buy them. (I'm sorry but I think is a blasphemy to read them in another language that the one they were originally written in). Anyway, since I arrived to Kangarooland, I've been able to finally catch up with some of my favorite series. That means that I'm reading old issues and you're going to hear me praise and complain about some of them. I apologize, but sometimes I just can't keep my mouth shut. So here we go:

A couple of nights ago I ask Mr. Marshmallow which superhero would he have an affair with. His answer was Wonder Woman and Black Canary for a one night stand, and for a long term relationship, Barbara Gordon. Then he asked me who would I choose. Who? No others than Bruce Wayne and Oliver Queen. They are cute. They are sexy. They can kick your @#&. Plus they're both millionaires (most of the time).
So I remembered that I haven't been able to read some of Green Arrow's last year issues. I loved Kevin Smith and Brad Meltzer's stories. Then came Judd Winnick, and some of them were still pretty cool. In all of those issues art by Phil Hester was just perfect. Just what those stories needed.
Imagine my shock when I saw in issue 46 that a guy Tom Fowler took over.
Sinners, there's no way that guy was a good option to draw GA! His art is not bad, but only if he's drawing for MAD MAGAZINE! My eyes bled every single page that I had to watch what he did to Ollie, Mia, Connor and Roy. I almost stopped reading. Really.
Praise the loooord because we now have Scott McDaniel.
Now, I just want someone to explain to me what the hell happened in that year. *sigh*

I guess there's nothing I can do, but wait. Until then I will keep on thinking which superhero would be the greatest one night stand.. Hmm. Tough job, I know, but someone has to do it. Don't worry about me, I have a lot time to kill. I know it's a dumb question, but really.. who would you chose?

Are you ready?

Give me a L!!!
Give me an I!!
Give me a S!!!
Give me another S!!!
What does it say!!??

Congrats Liss! I'm really happy for you, and you know that. I'm so proud that I'll even eat pizza this weekend, just for you.
Oh yeah, my friend is going to Harvard this summer. =)

More useless videos for you, sinners

Ever wonder how would copy machines strike back? Watch this video.
(You are going to love this, Rob)

Say goodbye to your sorrow , and hello to tomorrow (8)

I've been meaning to blog for months now about a great rock band I heard when I first arrived to Kangarooland, but you know, I'm lazy. Anyway, the band's name is Wolfmother, and they tooootally rock. Anyway, maybe you've heard them already, so you're free to not read this post. If you haven't, trust me, and keep on reading. Listening to this guys is just like traveling back in time to the seventies, when gods like Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath ruled the earth. Check out some of Wolfmother's songs at their official site. I just love the whole album and I highly recommend you to out check out at least these songs: Mind's eye, Tales From The Forest Of Gnomes, and Joker and the Thief, you won't regret it.
Enjoy :)

If you listen to the sound within your mind
you may find the answer flowing in the tide
- from the tales from the forest of gnomes

Oh, beautiful saturday afternoon!

Perfect day to watch a crazy guy skydiving with a turbine! Watch it here.

This is what the rebellion should've done...

Darth Vader invades Japan

:) Yes, it made us laugh, so sue us.

With a gun barrel between your teeth, you speak only in vowels.

Hello, my dear sinners, today, I feel like quoting:

Man, I see in fight club the strongest and smartest men who've ever lived. I see all this potential, and I see squandering. God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables; slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don't need. We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War's a spiritual war... our Great Depression is our lives. We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won't. And we're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off.

Fight Club (1999)

This is Ms. Mysterious' way to say ...daaaaamn.

Play it again, Sam. You dirty bastard.

Oh, it's been a hard day for Ms. Mysterious , my dear sinners. First, my computer got sick, so I had to steal Mr. Marshmallow's computer. Since it was not my computer, I didn't want to ruin it by using it too much, so I HAD to play Xbox to kill some time before my tae kwon do and hapkido class. Then, when I came back, I just HAD to watch some Dirty Sanchez videos (you know, the guys that do stupid things like playing with poisonous spiders and jumping off buildings just so we can watch them get injured -Nasty frackers by the way. Not for weak stomachs).

Anyway, when I finally was brave enough to use Mr. Marshmallow's computer, I went to a site called Pandora (music genome project). This is a pretty cool site for all you filthy sinners that love music, and that are thirsty for more. This thing is basically a radio station, the only difference is that they help you discover more music that you'll like. You just start by telling the station one of your favorite bands, and the site will start showing you different songs, from bands that have the same characteristics. How? by analyzing "the musical qualities of each song one attribute at a time"
Anyway, enough talking. Just try the damn site. It's free. We all like free stuff, remember?
Ms. Mysterious has spoken!

Thank you, Morpheus...

Okay, I just woke up, and among the many, many stupid dreams I had, one of them was about Daniel Craig (aka James Bond) and me competing against each other in something that resembled the Triwizard Tournament but in the city (looked like London) and instead of dragons, King Kong.
Of course he falls in love with me and... Sadly I don't know what happens after that. That's when I woke up. DAMN.
So why am I talking about this dream? Well, because the first thing I saw today on the TV (DW Channel?) is that Sean Connery will appear in Casino Royale in a minor role. Is it true? Was I completely awake when I heard this? I think so. Is this a good thing? Hm... Not sure.
Now, if you'll excuse me I'll have breakfast, and prepare for another hard day of reading comics and playing Fable.

Something sexy this way comes (8) (8)

Date: April 21 - 23, 2006.
Event: Supanova Pop Culture Expo
Who am I going to marry that day? None other than SEXY PAPA KENT! John Schneider. YEAH BABY!!
Okay, maybe I won't marry him, but daaamn I'm going to seduce him or something.
Who cares that Richard Taylor's going to be there! Who cares that Geoff Johns and Phil Jimenez are going to give an Infinite Crisis Masterclass? We are talking about Bo Duke, sinners! He's HOT. Period.
I guess God loves me after all :)

It's a bird! It's a plane! It's the Simpsons teaser trailer!

Monday morning. Still in Kangarooland. Sleepy, tired and still unemployed. *sigh* I'm starting to believe this is somewhat of a family curse.
Anyway, nothing like a nice teaser trailer of one of our most beloved and stupid characters of our era to avoid reality, at least for a minute. Who am I talking about? No other than Homer Simpson, my current role model. Hey, if he still has a job I think I still have possibilities to get one, don't you think?
Enjoy =)
