Veronica Mars the movie!

Veronica Mars Movie Finally in the Works - E! Online

Fuck yes!

"What that means for me is that I have a couple of months to write the Veronica Mars movie," Thomas says. "I suddenly find myself with enough time to write that script. That's the next project."

So what's the planned plot for the final send-off of V.M.? Rob spills the details...

Although previously reported that the movie would give fans a taste of Veronica solving crimes in college, Thomas clarifies: "I think it would open just days before Hearst College graduation, so Veronica would be at the end of her college career."

As for where she'll go from there, Thomas hasn't quite nailed that down, but has plenty of ideas. "[The story is] 70 percent broken in my head. I've been struggling with one plot point, and I'm hopeful [that I will] figure that out. On the dry-erase board at my house there are Veronica Mars plot points that I want to see, so it is at least there."

The Manhattan Project (the whole movie)

Hulu - The Manhattan Project - Watch the full feature film now.

Hulu describes this film as "A high school student builds his own atomic bomb in an effort to expose the fact that the government is secretly building nuclear weapons in his home town." but what I remember is this: badass teen nerd pumps his mother's boyfriend about the security system at the local nuclear power plant then uses a clever array of gadgets (including using two frisbees to fool motion detectors) to steal fissionable material and build his own basement nuke. Which he almost detonates.

This is one of my favorite Heroic Nerd movies from my childhood. (See also, Real Genius, Pump Up the Volume, My Science Project)

24, the Conservative Movement, and a Love of Torture

With New Season Of 24, Right-Wing Falls In Love With Torture All Over Again

You guys, 24 is fiction, right? Just because Kiefer can torture people and solve problems on TV doesn't mean torture works in real life.

The Best Television Episodes Of 2008

The Best Television Episodes Of 2008 | The A.V. Club

7. Generation Kill, "A Bomb In The Garden"

The title says everything that needs to be said about the final episode of Generation Kill, Wire creator David Simon and company's brilliant adaptation of Rolling Store reporter Evan Wright's book about his experience as an embed with a Marine recon battalion in the Iraq War. In a stunning three-week campaign through the country, the Marines have forged their way through Iraq, overcoming poor armor, equipment failure, and inept, potentially disastrous decision-making at the top in order to get to Baghdad. Once they arrive, the war has created such chaos and destruction that the best they can do are little things, like defusing an unexploded bomb lodged in a garden where children play. It fits beautifully into an ongoing theme both here and on The Wire: That decent, well-intentioned people can make a small difference, but they're doomed to be let down by their leaders.

Commentary the musical -- the lyrics

Sing-Along Blog (Soundtrack from the Motion Picture)

Commentary the musical is the hidden bonus musical on the "Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along-Blog" DVD. It's surprisingly awesome.

02. Strike!

Music and Lyrics by Joss Whedon

Performed by the Writers

WHEN YOU START NEGOTIATIONS
WITH INTEGRITY AND PATIENCE
AND THEY JUST CRY “BATTLE STATIONS!”
WHAT’S TO LIKE?
WHEN YOU ASK A SMALL AMOUNT AND
THEN ENCOUNTER COUNTER’S COUNTER
AND THE DEAL IS TANTAMOUNT TO
“TAKE A HIKE”
YOU CAN’T SIT AROUND WITH YOUR HEAD IN THE SAND
YOU PULL IT OUT, YOU STAND UP AND
YOU STRIKE
