The first person to find me a picture of Andrew Eldritch WITHOUT sunglasses on wins a prize. I'm serious. I'm dying to see if he actually has eyes. I'm starting to think he doesn't.

Two reasons I want to see this movie. 1. The title is awesome. 2. Justin Long. If those aren't good enough reasons to see a movie, I don't want to know what are.
Ok, ok. It's a horror movie and I would watch it anyway. WHATEVER. It looks interesting and different from anything I've seen latelty, so yay.
Go watch the trailer: http://www.dragmetohell.net/

It's not often that I'm on the edge of my seating and totally engrossed in a movie...but that definitely was the case with Taken. Liam Neeson's character was very likeable. The type of character you pull for throughout the entire movie. This is more of a thriller than an action movie (don't get me wrong, there are plenty of fights) and I think that's why I was into it.
If you like LOST (and who doesn't?) Maggie Grace (Shannon) is in this movie. Upside is she is not nearly as annoying as she was on LOST and the downside is she looks really bad with brown hair.

J.J. Abrams is right up there with Ryan Murphy for creating two television shows that are awesome.
LOST. Oh, man. What an awesome show. This is the type of show for people who like to become obsessed with a series and anazlyze everything. I LOVE IT. There are so many twists, so much interconnectedness and still so many questions left unaswered that I am dying to know the answers to.
Fringe. If you haven't seen this new show yet, you need to. If you liked The X-Files or if you like J.J. Abrams' style, then you will easily become obsessed with this show. It has many of the same qualities of LOST: people being connected in strange ways, people are not always what they seem, Easter eggs and foreshadowing, cliff hangers, etc. It took me a few episodes to get hooked, but now I am REALLY into it.
I think I am going to have to follow this up soon with a Ryan Murphy appreciation post. I can't think of anyone else to create more than one tv show I like. Anyone else?

Needless to say, I am REALLY excited to watch a new episode of LOST this week.
Random side note: Whenever Daniel Faraday is on the screen all I can think about is his portrayal of Charles Manson. Anyone else?
EDIT: OH WTF. Apparently it's a re-run tonight. WHYYYYY!?

Peter Murphy is second from the left in both pictures. Look at those cheekbones!! Undeniable. You can't fuck with those. There is something about his predominantly black wardrobe and unmistakable voice that gets me going. I'm serious. Watch the music video for She's In Parties right now and try not to get turned on. I DARE YOU. Be sure to check out his solo stuff, it's just as sexy.

I'm going to start with my one true love, Dave Gahan (Depeche Mode).
He is on the right in both pictures. Holy damn he is one of the sexiest men EVAR. Do yourself a favor and go watch their music video for Halo and the one for Personal Jesus. You will not be disappointed with the sexiness that is Dave Gahan in those two videos. I think the fact that he can sing AND dance add to his timeless appeal.
On a really exciting note...tickets go on sale next week for Depeche Mode's 2009 tour!!! Ahhhhhhhh!!! I have a bad feeling about the amount of money I am going to spend for the chance to be close enough to Dave Gahan to taste his sweat. Yup. I'm sick.

Elaborate makeup aside, there were other note-worthy things that night. There was a guy that looked like he could have been in Bauhaus. His 80's goth look was in full effect and I loved it.
Unfortunately he looked to be in his late 40s. Where are all the 20-something 80's goth rock looking guys at? Hit me up! I'm not talking Hot Topic, I'm talking Ian Curtis look-a-like.
There was also a goth girl there doing some classic goth dance moves such as "kicking the smurf" and "moving through the cobwebs". Priceless.
In an effort to steer this post away from 100% goth talk, I ran into Mel and Shane that night. It was great seeing them again.
Melisser is leaving for Europe Thursday and will be leaving me dance partner-less for weeks! SIGH.I think the best way to end this post is with a picture of Steve Strange of Visage:
