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."


  1. I can't wait to get the newest OZ collection. I've lost track of how many OZ dvds I've purchased over the years. LOL. But I can never resist!

  2. Wow. That Oz box set looks so good!
