A Bunch of Belated Congratulations: 5.29

So it was recently brought to my attention by not one, not two, but three completely different readers in three separate emails that I did nothing to recognize the recent 25th birthday of my avatar. I'm sorry, Chad Mike. Bro, I didn't mean to not recognize, yo. So a big happy 25th to my faithless faithful avatar, Chad Michael Murray. Congratulations on the quarter-century and may you live to see several more.

Another big congrats goes out to my man, Jeremy Piven. The Immaculate JP was recently awarded an Emmy for his work as superagent Ari Gold on HBO's Entourage, an award which I, for one, think he more than earned.
Yay I say!

Speaking of Entourage and congratulations, I finally finished watching this latest season, the third. I have to say that this year's most improved player on the show would have to be Kevin Dillon as "Johnny Drama." Frankly, it took me awhile to get into his character, but this season, Dillon seems to have finally found Drama's humanity and, to the greatest extent I think he's ever gonna get it, humility. And that has finally made Drama funny, not annoying.

Runner-up in this category would have to be Rex Lee's beleauguered gaysian assistant "Lloyd." Even though this year's apparently-obligatory season finale speech wasn't quite as good Season Two's rice rocket pep rally, Lloyd had some of the season finale's best lines, including his unexpected 'top' status and the transformation of the Gay Mafia into the "Gay Assistant Corps." Of course, he still seems awfully clueless despite having been Ari's assistant for what, like two years or so in the context of the show? I mean, telling Vince there was a bigger meeting than him? Hello! You say he's out of the office all day in meetings with his cell phone off and you'll do your best to get through to him as soon as possible.

And speaking of television, I have two words for everyone in the blogosphere: Veronica Mars

I just last night finished the second season on DVD since I'd missed some episodes and bailed on the finale to avoid ruining the season-long mystery. But I've finished my Mars marathon now, and trust me on this: BEST. SHOW. ON. TELEVISION. PERIOD.
Veronica is hot.
Creator Rob Thomas has assembled a dynamite cast led by Kristen Bell as the titular heroine, created an interesting, dynamic world in the fictional California town of Neptune, and tied it all together with sharply-written storylines. If you haven't really heard much about it, I advise checking out this post over at Overeducated and Underemployed. The clip is definitively lo-fi, but it'll give newbies a good overview of the show. So if that's you, I'm telling you, two words: Veronica Mars

So that's my congratulations. Way to get older, Chad Michael Murray. Way to act, Jeremy Piven. Way to not suck, Kevin Dillon. And way to just be, Kristen Bell.

I love, love, love Veronica Mars! It's great to hear other people do to. Everyone should watch that show. It's my favorite weekly TV date since Buffy went off the air.

I'm curious as to what the end of the sentence beginning "I mean, telling Vince there was" might be.

And happy belated birthday, Chad Michael...although I'm a little sad that it looks like the impending CW merger has killed off my beloved Saturday-afternoon "Voyager" reruns. *sniffle*

Hi!

So, I live in Norway and here we haven't got season 3 yet, and it will probably take a very long time! I was just wondering, when does it come on DVD in the USA? Please, help me! I'm a huge fan! And, does anyone know if season 3 is the last one?

Ancient Greek philosophy was divided into three sciences: physics, ethics, and logic. This division is perfectly suitable to the nature of the thing; and the only improvement that can be made in it is to add the principle on which it is based,Silver Tiffany so that we may both satisfy ourselves of its completeness, and also be able to determine correctly the necessary subdivisions.Tiffany JewelryAll rational knowledge is either material or formal: the former considers some object, the latter is concerned only with the form of the understanding and of the reason itself,Tiffany Bracelets and with the universal laws of thought in general without distinction of its objects. Formal philosophy is called logic.Material philosophy,Tiffany Earrings however, has to do with determinate objects and the laws to which they are subject, is again twofold; for these laws are either laws of nature or of freedom.Tiffany Necklaces The science of the former is physics, that of the latter, ethics; they are also called natural philosophy and moral philosophy respectively.
