Catching up on Memes

TV Show Meme (From PJ)
I thought this one looked fun though I'm not sure if anyone who reads this blog whould be interested in participating.

a. Post a list of 10-20 TV shows you love (current or cancelled)
b. Have your friends list guess your favourite character from each show
c. When guessed bold the line and write a little bit about why you like that character
d. Post in your own blog. (if you want)

1. Ugly Betty
2. Star Trek (TOS)- You guessed it Lee! Kirk is my god.
3. The Adventures of Brisco County Jr- Lee got this one too, it's Brisco of course.
4. Angel
5. Doctor Who- Lee got this one too, it's the 9th Doctor, Christopher Eccelston.
6. Star Trek the Next Generation- Oh Lee you know me so well! It's Riker!
7. Freaks and Geeks
8. Futurama
9. Spaced
10. The Office (US & UK)- MC got this one, Dwight on the US and David on the UK.


8 Things Meme (Ben tagged me on this one.)

Here be the rules...argh...

1. We have to post these rules before we give you the facts.
2. Players start with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
3. People who are tagged write their own blog post about their eight things and include these rules.
4. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names. Don't forget to leave them a comment telling them they're tagged and that they should read your blog. (I'm not going to tag anyone on this because I think most of the blogs I read have already been tagged on this but please feel free to do it if you wish!)
5. 8 is a magic number. Not three.

1. The movie I'm am most looking foward to is My name is Bruce directed by, written by and starring the man himself Bruce Campbell. In the movie Bruce is mistaken for his character Ash from the Evil Dead trilogy and forced to fight a real monster in a small town in Oregon. SWEET! Should be out sometime next year.

2. I recently had a photoshoot with a dominatrix named Mistress Mena. She has a great look and I had a great time working with her. Here are a couple pictures we took:




3. I'm jealous of cats...I see them lying in sunny spots or in window sills not a care in the world and it makes me want to be a cat. I'm sure the grass is greener and all that stuff though...

4. My favorite episode of The Simpsons is You Only Move Twice where Homer gets a new job for Hank Scorpio Bond villian and all around good guy. I think my favorite scene has to be the one where Scorpio has Bond tied to a table and is about to cut him in two with a laser. Somehow Bond escapes and Homer clumslily recaptures him and sends Bond to his grave. Hilarious!

Here's a scene from this great episode:


5. When i was a kid and people asked me what I wanted to do when I grew up I used to answer Elvira. Seriously she's the coolest woman in the world, basically she's a witch who gets to sit around all day and watch b-movies. Perfect.


6. This picture of Eric Bana leaves me weak in the knees. Now I know why he had so many wives...worth risking your head...


7. Speaking of weak in the knees Jodie Marsh has the same effect. She's so cute!



8. There's probably something wrong in my head I mean who takes pictures like the one bellow? I do and I love it!



I won't tag anyone on these but please feel free to do them if you wish!

Becca said...

Lee-
1. good guess...she's so glam but ctually not my favorite character.

2. Of course Shatner is my god, the man can do anything.

3. Correct! BC is only a lesser god to William Shatner. I actually met Bruce and got a chance to talk to him him...ooooh. In 1995 a friend of mine and I hopped in a car, drove 6 hours and snuck onto a college campus where he was appearing. They showed Evil Dead 2 then there was a Q&A with Bruce and I got to ask a question. It was totally thrilling. Afterwards i got his autograph, he signed it:

"Becca- Marry me!"

Needless to say it's a cherrished item. If Chins Could Kill is a great book, it's very, very cool you got an autographed copy!

4. I do dig Cordy but she's not my favorite...probably my second fav.

5. I was always a Pertwee girl until I saw Christopher Eccelston and now he's my favorite Doctor.

6. You know me wayyyyy tooo well! Riker is also correct! We would rock on the Newlywed Game...assuming you know what that is...of course why on earth would you get bad American gameshows from the 60's or 70's down your way...

7. It's a freak.

8. Nibbler is great but he's not my fav. I love his voice!

9. Good I bet you will love Spaced! It's a great show!

10. And she was very funny in Shaun but not may favorite character.

Randal-
LOL! I did actually laugh out loud when I read that quote. That episode is so great!

2. Yes definitely...Kirk is my god. That's how you can tell I'm a total nerd.

3. Brisco is my favorite but I do love Lord Bowler.

4. Doyle was a really cool character and I really miss him when he's not on the show anymore. The actor who played Doyle really led a messed up life, he had a major drug problem and died at such a young age...but Doyle is not my favorite character.

6. Lee guessed it right, I'm a Riker girl.

8. I love Bender Bending Rodriguez he's so funny but not my fav character.

If I was smarter I'd watch more porn than broadcast television.

I'm so glad you got the reference, I've watched that Clerks cartoon DVD more times than I care to admit.

MC-
1. No it's not Betty though she is adorable!

2. It's Kirk as I've said before he is my god, and the man can rock a song.

3. Bruce Campbell is the man and Brisco is my favorite role he's played.

4. It's not Spike...actually Spike is like one of my least favorite characters on the show.

5. Tom Baker is very, very cool but somehow Christopher Eccleston has become my favoriet Doctor.

6. I love every one of those Barkley episodes, he was the man! But I'm a Riker girl.

7. No, but Seth Rogan is really funny on that show.

8. I'm actually not a huge fan of Zoidberg.

9. It is really tough to pick a favorite character from this show everyone is so funny on it but it's not Daisy.

10. Yes! Exactly! Dwight never fails to crack me up and Ricky Gervais is so funny as David Brent. I love on the special when you get to see his music video. Classic!

Is it Miss Turanga Leela?

Arjan said...

Futurama: got to be Bender..
Angel: Spike

Nice blog. I gotta see
The other Boleyngirl now, if only for the women in green *drool*.
Jodie Marsh..men don't get week knees, but ..... *hush!!*

The pinhead pic: hahahahhaha! great. No kissing.
Going to get back to give someone the blogging star.

Made my own series list over at Soundtracksofwhatever

PJ said...

Thanks for the blogging star, you sexy diamond pie.

I'm going to guess that your fave characters are a) Lorn in Angel, and b) Leela in Futurama.

Becca said...

J.D.-
Alas no.

Arjan-
Thanks for stopping by! Your blog looks pretty cool as well. I too am a fellow soundtrack junkie and glad to see another soundtrack blog born.

PJ-
Oh PJ you make me blush! Such a naughty nun!

And while Lorn is quite cool he's not my favorite.

J.D. said...

Fry?

MC said...

I thought you might want to play with my version of the meme too Becca.

MC said...

Since you correctly guessed Tim Bisley for Spaced, it seems like a good try for me to guess him as one of your favorites as well.

And how about Scruffy for Futurama?
