The RBM 6th Month Anniversary Party (and Sleepover and Breakfast) was a night of dancing, drinking, bacon-wrapped-scallops, and violence. One of our temps, Kehley, took a grip of pictures, maybe we’ll post them later. Probot and I failed at the Run DMC-kick-dance and I threw my diamond watch at an annoying kid (don’t worry, I got it back). May we never hire DJ USA again.
Spoiler Alert: Okay. Season 4.5 of Battlestar premiered on Friday night and as incredible as it was, I really don’t want Helen to be the fifth Cylon. She’s been out of the picture for two years and Tigh has grown so much as a character since then. And what about Starbuck burning her own body, prviding one of the most eerie images in BSG history. The suicide of D was insane, but at least she died happy. Her death also led to two of the most tense scenes ever: Lee and Adama’s talk in the morgue and Adama’s confrontation with Tigh. Shit, I need to go watch it again…
I’ve never been into movies about boy wizards, I’m more of a farmboy Jedi man myself, but this Japanese Harry Potter fansite managed to knick tons of new images from Half Blood Prince. Ch-ch-check it out here, nerds.
While battling strep throat on Saturday night, I made it out to see the new Lifetime original movie, Notorious. Check out my review of it here. If you live in trigger-happy Greensboro, NC, you can’t see the movie. A man was shot in the lobby and the actor who plays Biggie, James Woolard, happened to be in the theater. Whether this is connected or not hasn’t been confirmed yet, but they will no longer be showing the movie. There have not yet been any shootings related to Paul Blart: Mall Cop.
Pour One Out For: Bob May, the actor inside the Robot suit from the ’60s show Lost in Space, died on Sunday of congestive heart failure at the age of 69. From Yahoo! News:
He was a veteran actor and stuntman who had appeared in movies, TV shows and on the vaudeville stage when he was tapped by “Lost in Space” creator Irwin Allen to play the Robinson family’s loyal metal sidekick in the series that debuted in 1965.
He went on to appear in numerous films with Jerry Lewis and in such TV shows as “The Time Tunnel,” “McHale’s Navy and “The Red Skelton Show.” He was also a stuntman in such 1950s and ’60s TV shows as “Cheyenne,” “Surfside 6,” “Hawaiian Eye,” “The Roaring 20s” and “Stagecoach.”
