Dawson's Creek - Season 6
Season 6 of Dawson’s Creek started.. oddly. It came out in 2002, but has an extremely 90’s feel and look. There’s a sassy voice-over by Joey and “awesome” special effects like this Pacey looks terrible - he’s at his puggiest here with a chin beard and greasy hair but it’s fitting, since he suddenly finds himself playing Giovanni Ribisi to Dana...
Sorry for the recent Creek overload on this blog. Work has been kind of stressful lately. This is how I deal.
Also this happened.
Called it! I probably would have done the same. If this version of Ken Marino (vs this version) had been my English teacher. There was kissing AND then Joey learned a lesson about incomplete endings being the best kind of endings. Otherwise, Season 5 of Dawson’s Creek was kind of a wash. Sure, Sherilyn Fenn made a cameo (her most unflattering role ever? no stills from me here) but...
Are you a fan of the band Rooney? I’d heard this song but wasn’t really familiar with the band until I looked up this guy (Ned Brower, the drummer) while watching Dawson’s Creek. So, he went from this (a weird nerdy guy who for me is possibly the most relatable/interesting fringe character on the show) to this (far right) to this (still from Are You Afraid of Me?) So...
Dawson's Creek - Season 5 - Episode 18
Amy Lloyd: Favorite movie of the last couple years? Off the top of your head, don't even think about it!
Dawson: Run Lola Run
Amy Lloyd: Liar! That's the movie you whip out to show people how cool you are. I'm not interested in cool, I'm interested in the movie that made you cry and you have no idea why. I'm interested in the movie that you're embarrassed to tell your friends you went to go see on opening night.
Dawson: - sometime later - By the way, mine is Roadhouse. With Patrick Swayze. I've seen it like 37 times. Every time it's on TV I have to watch it all the way through. I own the tape. I love it and no idea why.
Amy Lloyd: That's a good one!
(there’s an awesome gif here for those of you reading this on your tumbr dashboard) “The problem with your story, Joey Potter, is that it ends at the very moment it should begin.” I’m (finally!) starting Season 5 (THE COLLEGE YEARS) of Dawson’s Creek and am reminded once again of why I love this show so much: guest stars! Ken Marino is playing the very sexy...
There are a lot of great things up on Hulu right now (The Elephant Man, Chaplin, Moonstruck, etc), but the thing I’m most excited about is Julia Sweeney’s God Said ‘Ha!’ I initially discovered my love for Sweeney about a year ago by way of This American Life. The episode and the above overlap somewhat, but if you’re new to the story, please give this video a watch.
The gang from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia have a ‘celebrity playlist’ up on iTunes (one for each cast member). I’ve no idea how to link to it, but it’s on the iTunes Store music main page, right next to Julia Louis Dreyfus’ playlist. Some interesting selections.
My mom took some great stills from the beautiful 1927 Soviet silent film Bed and Sofa.
Have been watching the first two episodes of FlashForward on Hulu. It’s interesting enough but there are SO MANY redundant flashbacks (I know, IRONIC!) I don’t know how long I can stick with it. It’s the same issue I had with Fringe - the idea that an audience has to be constantly reminded why something is significant. I thought the success of Lost would have taught tv...
remember when i mentioned my latest metrocard had the word ‘optimism’ on it? turns out people are selling these as collectors items! hydroponicsonline ($29!) / ebay / sekaimon
Hey - I was away in upstate NY since Friday - more on that soon - but now I’m back! Hooray for electricity and being back at work!
