It's time for another hodgepodge post on My Pet Blog. Today's post is brought to you by the letter L and will have absolutely nothing to do with lizards, leaping or otherwise. I just love alliteration.
Let's get started, shall we?
Show: Veronica Mars
Portrayed by: Jason Dohring
So, yesterday I was having one of those confidence free days where I didn't know why I was bothering to write a book at all (I think we call it "Thursday") so I decided to knock off early and partake in a Veronica Mars marathon. If you're unfamiliar with this show, I highly recommend it but be sure to tune in on April 25th when this special, completely awesome show gets its first very own post. Anyway, I'm digressing. Partway through the pilot episode, I decided I had to make mention of one of my very favorite characters ever, Logan Echolls. When we first meet him, Veronica says, "every school has an obligatory psychotic jackass— he's ours." And he certainly starts out that way but through the three too short seasons of the show, he evolves into quite an interesting, complicated character.
Best lines: "Annoy tiny blond one. Annoy like the wind." (Season One, Echolls Family Christmas)
"My day is complete. Veronica Mars has accused me of evil doing." (Season Two, Green Eyed Monster)
Show: Gilmore Girls
Portrayed by: Lauren Graham
Lorelai Gilmore is quite possibly the coolest mom in television history. I love writing dialogue and I love a show that has well written dialogue. And this is one such show (all right, so the last two seasons weren't all that great. But there were still occasionally funny moments). One of the taglines for this show was "Life's short. Talk fast" and no one embodied this philosophy more than Lorelai. It was probably that coffee addiction. But whatever it was, she was always ready with a clever quip which makes it so much harder to pick favorite lines for her. Really, you could pick any episode and there would be some awesome Lorelai moment. So I'm just going to post this video of one of my favorite conversations between Lorelai and her daughter, Rory. The video's about three minutes long. It's not the one I wanted to post because the shorter version had the embedding disabled. Uncool, YouTube people. Uncool.
And now for something completely different...
Because I do recognize the fact that some of you (most of you) out there are not as television obsessed as I am.
Live (the rock band...not as "Live! With Regis and Kelly!") 's first album was Mental Jewelry in 1991. They achieved their biggest success with their 1994 album Throwing Copper. The following video (one of my favorites) is from that album.
