pop culture (monkey) princess

So, last night we went to see American Splendour (or Splendor, if you prefer), which was absolutely fantastic and which I strongly recommend. So funny, and so sad. I really loved it.

And on a much more cheesey note, tonight I saw my first episode of The OC, which I recorded last night and which is now my new favourite show. They started showing it last week, so I missed the first one, but on the basis of the second episode, I'm hooked. This afternoon I told my visiting-American friend Sara that I was going to watch it this evening.

Sara: All the ladies in my office are totally in love with Seth Cohen, me included. I predict that you will be in love with him too.
Me: Pshaw!
Sara: No, you really will be.

And I am! How well she knows me.

(it's all i can do to keep up on angel - adding the oc would be quite beyond me. though it is all over my friends list.)

We're a little obsessed with Seth Cohen and The O.C. in my house. And it just keeps getting better!

Alas, it's on TG4, an Irish TV station. Technically, it's an Irish language station, but they show loads of cool American shows (in the original English, don't worry!) like Curb Your Enthusiasm, and now The OC. If you really want to see it, I could record a few episodes for you and post them!

That's really sweet but I think I'm going to survive. Plus I have home internet again and no longer need a life because I can spend all night downloading things to watch.

Seth Cohen
Love Seth Cohen also! Miss him being on Gilmore Girls, though.

2nd episode? Were you watching re-runs? OC started airing a few months ago. Anyway, I think it's probably a terrific little guilty pleasure, unless you live in OC. According to my husband, former CA resident, there are several inaccuracies; however, inaccuracies don't stop him from drooling over S.C.'s mom.

Next episode: Jan. 14th on FOX.

Re: Seth Cohen
As I am in Ireland, the show's Fox airings are, alas, useless to me. They just started showing it on an Irish station, for which I am thankful!

I just read Harvey Pekar & Joyce Brabner's book 'Our Cancer Year', and really recommend it. The other American Splendor books are patchy - stories vary from great to so-so, and the art varies from great to appalling. But this one is fantastic. There's a LOT which isn't in the film. It's very moving and even manages to be funny in places, and there's plenty about Joyce's anti-war projects as well, which is very interesting.
