Summer Movies!

It's really starting to look like summer now - at least where I live! The sun is shining and although there is still a little bit of a chill in the air, it is considerably warmer than it has been lately.

Summer means it's time for a summer movie marathon. There are so many films out there that really capture the spirit of the season. My favourites are the ones with excellent humor, or an adventure of some kind. "Grease" will always top my list though, simply because it reminds me how much fun high school was (sometimes) and the music is great.

Here is a look at 10 of the Best Summer Movies of All Time. Is your favorite there? If not, let me know what it is in the comments!

John Cho talks Flashforward!

It's here! I posted last week about how I interviewed John Cho about Flashforward - now the interview has finally been published - yippeee!!!!!

When Flashforward was brought to an abrupt end last year, many things were left unanswered. Although John Cho couldn't answer the question of what might have been - he did throw around a few theories and ideas, some of which may be surprising to some. However, by far the most important part of this interview was hearing how he felt about the fans and their efforts to keep Flashforward on the air. Read what he had to say here: An Interview with John Cho - Flashback to Flashforward.

P.S I could have written a better post, but I am too excited! :p

Farmville Goes Gaga!

Farmville Goes Gaga

Yup, that's right - Lady Gaga is about to get her own farm! Well, virtually, at least.

My attention was brought to this story by my friend Clare (Thanks!!) and my first impression was to laugh out loud! Lady Gaga and Farmville don't really seem like the most logical of things to combine. But now I think about it a little more - I am kinda excited. I like FarmVille, I like Lady Gaga - how could I not love it?? I can't deny the weirdness of the idea though. What do you think? Good, bad or couldn't care less?

The night my Flashforward came true

Last night I had a dream come true. I spoke to John Cho on the phone and got to interview him about Flashforward!!

I have just been listening to some of the recording of the interview and am mildly concerned that I may have lacked a touch of professionalism in my overwhelming excitement! *blushes*

While I can't claim to know him after one call, my level of respect for John Cho multiplied last night. What I learned was that he really cares about his work and is very, very genuine. I am deeply honored to have had the chance to speak with him - and I'm not sure if my brain will ever fully understand that it really happened. There is a lot of work to do before the interview is published but I will keep you posted!

Without going into too much detail before I publish the interview - I will say that many Flashforward questions were answered. Perhaps not enough to satisfy everyone's curiosity but certainly enough that I feel a certain amount of closure now.

Not many people get the chance to say they spoke to a star of TV and movies from the comfort of their bedroom! *lol* It amazes me that such a thing can really happen.

Thank you, Mr Cho, for making my Flashforward become a reality.

New look, new location!

Hey guys!

I decided to move my entertainment blog over to Blogger too. I feel it has much more to offer than Wordpress and it looks WAY prettier! I got my new background and header from here. Thanks to the awesome people at Dotty Dot Dot for having such an amazing choice of backgrounds!

I still have a little more designing to do but for now - enjoy looking around! I will add blog rolls and fun stuff over the next few days!
