Weeeee're heeeeeere!!

So here I am skipping class once again (nothing really bad about it this time, we're just watching a movie), and in thinking about what to do with my academically belligerent self, I realized that a post is needed. Many things have occurred since the last time we posted, and it's time to make some formal acknowledgments.

First of all, the great Soupy Sales has passed on. One may remember Soupy from his pie-throwing antics, or for his joking suggestion to the children of America that they steal their parents money and send it to him. This proved successful, thus proving the growing stupidity of America's youth. Though these are all fine and good, we prefer to remember him from this:

And of course this:

So RIP Soupy. Rest in pie.

Second line of business, Halloween is on the way, and we at Screen Mavens are super excited. So excited in fact, that we are proposing a Halloween movies poll. We are going to rattle off some Halloween films--be they traditional Halloween films or not so traditional, for kids or adults, psychologically disturbing, horror, or suspense--and your task is to tell us which one is your favorite. We will then make a Halloween entry devoted to the winning film, complete with clips, pictures, information, and trivia. You can vote for your film by commenting on this entry with your choice from the following list:







We here at Screen Mavens know that the choice might be difficult, so we will say that you can vote for 2. Vote for your first one, and then leave another comment voting for your second one. That way it will make it easier for us to count.


That's all for now, guys, don't forget to vote on your favorite Halloween movie!! Until next time...

Updates, and a special introduction.

So as I'm sitting here dogsitting, with a neurotic dachshund on my legs, I thought I would make an entry, because obviously that's a very novel concept when you have a blog. So sorry to have kept you waiting for...a month. Damn...we're kind of bad at this. Hopefully we get better later. To our credit, we have both been busy pretending to do homework and acting like we're academically inclined, so once we get tired of pretending to care about our futures, we'll get back to this.

Oh, before I get started on the post proper, 2 things need to be covered.

Item 1:

Emily and I both bought this, against our better financial judgment. It has EVERYTHING--a book, an ad collection, a WATCH (WTF), and HELLA bonus materials that weren't on the 2004 set. It really deserves its own post, but suffice it to say here: it's worth every penny.

Item 2:

They FINALLY released Mary Tyler Moore, Season 5. Emily bought it the day it came out, I bought it the next day. We were both super excited--Emily thought Penny Marshall's appearances were in season 5, and I for some reason thought Chuckles Bites the Dust was season 5. Turns out, they're both season 6. Failure. Oh well, it's still amazing.

Ok, now that those items are taken care of--on to the post.

Emily and I want you to meet:

(I hate that she's Katharine Hepburn's niece. The apple fell pretty damn far from the tree on that one.)


Emily discovered this, and sent it to me in an IM with the words "STOP EVERYTHING!!!!!!!"

This is the one she sent:

I'm pretty sure that those people are US.

My favorite.

I am absolutely obsessed. There are more on youtube. Go check them out, they're hilarious. Ok I guess I'd better...oh but wait....WAIT....THERE IS SOMETHING ELSE I FEEL COMING ON...IT'S....

What is this video even? I love how 3/4 of this video is made up of clips of Judy from The JG Show that have nothing to do with Valley of the Dolls or this song. So much love.

Anyway, I think that's about it for this edition of Screen Mavens. Tune in next time, for "The Wizard of Oz: 70th Anniversary Set" or "The Wizard of Oz: If I Only Had A Financial Brain."
