This entry was better planned before but I'm sucked into Netflix right now, so you get the "HEY I NEEDED TO MENTION THIS. GOTTA GO BYE." version.
Thing the first: It's like an hour away (told you, better planning is not the strong point here), but if you get the Cooking Channel (it's the same as the Food Network for me, apparently--I don't watch those channels ever), at 10PM EST The Culinary Adventures of Baron Ambrosia
premieres! YOU SHOULD WATCH IT. Baron's from the Bronx and actually has a show on the channel I work for called Bronx Flavor
that is basically the local version of what he aims to do on CABA. I saw it described on GetGlue as "like if Adult Swim decided to do a cooking show" and... I guess, yeah, that is a good description. We are really proud and want the best for Baron because he's actually a great guy and just won a New York Emmy in March for Bronx Flavor. So if you are around, WATCH IT. Especially if you like those shows that feature weird foods and exotic stuff.
Thing the second: Tomorrow I'm going to Philly again! This time for Wizard World Philly, which will be the second time I've gone. splits_thesky
is cosplaying as Captain Jack from Torchwood and my Twilight Princess Link cosplay isn't done, so in a last ditch effort, I am going as Ianto Jones! I've never seen Torchwood before, but I needed fancy work clothes anyway and it seemed like a good reason to buy bright colors and a new tie and vest. Well, I just sat down and watched the first episode of TW and really enjoyed it, but I promised myself and splits_thesky
I'd get through Primeval first, so that's what I'm aiming for tonight and next week. ...after I watch this Janeane Garofalo special that was featured in (A)sexual.
Thing the third:
The (A)sexual documentary is on YouTube
. I don't know if I mentioned this before, and I have nothing to do with it (other than being asexual) but I watched it finally and it was heart-breaking but good! If anything it's a good introduction to the world of asexuals. I did wish it went further into the asexual spectrum, because they sort of skirt around the fact that some asexuals willing do have sex. Each of the couples they feature is like "yeah, we stopped." Also my heart aches for David Jay. I KNOW THAT FEEL, BRO. Come here and be my cuddle buddy. Anyway, I'm not sure that it's an official release as the filmmaker and David himself haven't mentioned it on Twitter, but I've waited long enough to watch it and promote it, so all the people I wanted to see it are getting alerted. When it's available for buying, I will put up the money for it as well.
ETA: Bah, apparently it wasn't
an official release. According to the Facebook group it comes out on June 5th, so I'l re-link to it then.
Thing the fourth: I bought tickets to see Frankenstein encore screenings on Wednesday and Thursday downtown at AMC Empire 25. I'm pretty sure I've mentioned this on Tumblr, but all I got back was "oh, but Sherlock NYC is seeing it Saturday!" Well, as I said above, I'm out of town tomorrow. And I'll willingly go alone, but I thought I'd mention it if anyone here wanted to come along. I promise I won't bite--either day. ;)
Also, this song has been in my head alll week, IDEK. I am not even technically Cumberbatched anymore.
