Monday, January 16th at 8pm- Harmontown
People always ask us “What is Harmontown?”, and that’s a tough question to answer, but here’s the closest thing we’ve got: we gave the creator of Community a night to do whatever he wanted, and what we got was Harmontown.
Attend a town meeting in a land free of brevity, where Mayor Dan Harmon and Comptroller Jeff B. Davis (Whose Line is it Anyway) take another small, vodka-soaked step toward colonizing the moon. Evening may include ineffectual rants, songs, shameful stories, special guests (Allison Brie, Donald Glover, and Gillian Jacobs have all stopped in), forehead sweat and repeated exposure to the phrases “like” , “uh”, “sort of” and “you know.”.
Tuesday, January 17th at 8pm- Justin Willman’s Magic Meltdown

I like things that are extremely ridiculous. They make me stupid with giddy and joy. Below is one such example of something that I cannot help but to love. It is a bit like the video for David Hasselhoff’s cover of ‘Hooked on a Feeling.’ It is just so wrong, it is right!
I have a plan for this dance. I’m going to learn it and do it one night, on camera, as I do my Geeky Pleasures radio show. It will be stupid and wonderful and fun! I thought I’d share the video here because every one needs some stupid and wonderful and fun in their lives.
I challenge you to be ridiculous today and learn Double Dream Hands, having fun while doing so.
I felt the need to make such a ridiculously obvious fangirl title for this post because if I had named it after the actual video people might not give it a chance. I swear, it is not what you think it is.
I’m sure a lot of you hardcore Supernatural fans have already found this gem (or at least if you follow Misha Collins on twitter you have) but when I discovered it the other night it pretty much kept me giggling for hours. And then I re-watched it and it became a guffaw. If you don’t follow him on twitter already you need to get on the bandwagon: @mishacollins.
When Halo: Reach came out, I thought that would be enough to keep my better half entertained for a while and that we would be trading in our old XBox towards one of my games(namely Fallout: New Vegas)but alas I was mistaken.
Dead Rising 2 came out this past Tuesday and yours truly got sent to go and pick it up after I was sick for most of the day. This is not a game I would ever enjoy playing I don’t think but I have to say, the weapons you can create…they are EPIC with a side of AWESOME. My new personal favorite is the homemade lightsaber, created using a flashlight and gems…which you bust jewelry store cases to get to. The ridiculous amounts of zombie carnage warm my heart and make me giggle like I used to while mooning over a boy band at age 10. The story leaves something to be desired but the crazy weapon combos(like the IED made out of a propane tank and nails, or the 2x4s attached to a lawnmower which makes a very efficient zombie grinder), and the really sweet costumes were enough to make me actually put my iPhone down and watch the game.
It’s not one I’ll play…but I could watch my husband kill zombies with a smile on my face for hours…:)
