UPDATE! If you missed yesterday’s deadline, do not fret – you can still purchase this t-shirt (albeit at a higher price) through the designer’s website. Click here. This site offers them in more colors and styles. Also, you can order this really neat poster:

Check out today’s shirt at Tee Fury:

Can you name all of the episodes represented? I see Purity Control from The Erlenmeyer Flask; is that the “sea monster” from Quagmire? There’s CSM and the Lone Gunmen, of course, but where’s that creature from the black lagoon from? I see the ship from Paper Clip, Flukie from The Host, Bees!, the cage from Jose Chung’s From Outer Space, the “plam” ice pick thingy, Tooms‘ arms and the worm from Ice. I’m so proud of myself for being able to recognize as much as I did.

Tee Fury shirts are all one-time deals, and available for only one day. You have only 9 hours before this one is gone forever, so get over there now!

X-Files Essentials

Filed under: miscellaneous stuff — Tags: — gina64 @ 1:15 pm

Question: When did the second X-Files movie, I Want To Believe, come out? Was it 2008? This is the internet, so I suppose I could check myself. Hang on…OK, yes it was 2008.

Anyway, back in 2008, in the lead up to the release of The X-Files: I Want to Believe, I entered into a contest and won a copy of The X-Files: Essentials DVD, a collection of episodes that deal with themes in the movie. I was psyched to win it – I never win anything! – but I had never actually watched it. So last Sunday while I did some work that I brought home from the office, I popped the DVD in and let the good old days wash over me. It was awesome.

The episodes I watched:

Beyond the Sea
The Host
Clyde Bruckman’s Final Repose
Memento Mori
Post Modern Prometheus

They are all classic X-Files, really great stuff, and they have aged quite well. The Pilot is really rough around the edges, but it still stands out as an example of the type of show you just don’t see on television very much anymore.

This is kind of neat.

It’s a fan-made trailer for a possible third X-Files movie, made as part of the “Believe in the Future” campaign, designed to convince FOX that XF3 is a good idea.

I think they could make a really good movie only if they went back to the alien colonization storyline and tied it into the whole 2012 thing. Don’t you think so?

I stumbled upon this great video while searching for an X-files Christmas video – very hard to come by, BTW! – and felt the need to share. I wish Castle and Beckett had this much chemistry.

Chatter: Summer Wasteland

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , — gina64 @ 5:51 pm

Is it just me, or is this summer particularly devoid of interesting television? It’s reality show after reality show, isn’t it? Ugh (although I freely admit to being a fan of Deadliest Catch and Wipeout) Thank God for True Blood! What I should be doing is watching the first few seasons of Mad Men on DVD. Oh, that reminds me, AMC is running a viewer’s choice marathon of Season 1 beginning at 8:00 tomorrow night, in case your interested.

Season 2 of Syfy’s Warehouse 13 premieres on this Tuesday night, July 6. It’s not a really great show, but it is sort of fun and lightweight and good for summertime viewing.

The A.V. Club has been re-watching and reviewing The X-Files and in their latest installment they begin season 3 with “The Blessing Way” and “Paper Clip”. I just loved the opening paragraph:

Season three of The X-Files is, for me, hands down, its best season and maybe one of the great TV seasons of all time… season three is where the mythology really works for me. It’s also the season where the standalones are generally the sharpest, despite a few clunkers here and there (no season is perfect). And, as the perfect capper, Darin Morgan turns in three episodes that rank among the best television episodes of all time. It’s a brutally consistent season of television, swinging from strength to strength, handily taking the show from cult sensation to genuine pop culture phenomenon, a show that would become a major part of the ’90s cultural landscape and an Emmy Award-winning sensation, instead of just a show a handful of devoted, fervent fans watched.

I must agree. Season 3 always has been will always be my favorite.
