MERRY CHRISTMAS (For Real This Time)!!!

I still love Christmastime. Still get excited for exchanging presents, eating cookies and listening to Christmas music (just spent a while buying X-Mas songs to make my own CDs...).

So here's to a happy Christmas (for those of you who celebrate...and even those who don't). Enjoy this hilarious Christmas video David Lafuente (AMAZING artist) posted on twitter that I fell in love with!

Merry F#%^ing Christmas. >:-(

So my aunt, uncle & cousins were burglarised yesterday. TVs, laptops, sentimental jewelry, and yes, CHRISTMAS PRESENTS, all stolen while everyone was at work. Thanks. What a wonderful fucking world we live in.

I have never wanted to hurt someone more in my life. I want to rip them apart with my bare hands. I hope they get a flesh-eating disease...

The End. ::sigh::

I Love You, Paul Rudd.

I Love You, Man

How Depressing Is This? Thanks Again, America!

I'll never understand people's fear of homosexuality. It doesn't affect you if you're not gay. Let these people frakkin' BE!

Here's the body, if you're too lazy to click. ;-) haha

US balks at backing condemnation of anti-gay laws

UNITED NATIONS – Alone among major Western nations, the United States has refused to sign a declaration presented Thursday at the United Nations calling for worldwide decriminalization of homosexuality.

In all, 66 of the U.N.'s 192 member countries signed the nonbinding declaration — which backers called a historic step to push the General Assembly to deal more forthrightly with any-gay discrimination. More than 70 U.N. members outlaw homosexuality, and in several of them homosexual acts can be punished by execution.

Co-sponsored by France and the Netherlands, the declaration was signed by all 27 European Union members, as well as Japan, Australia, Mexico and three dozen other countries. There was broad opposition from Muslim nations, and the United States refused to sign, indicating that some parts of the declaration raised legal questions that needed further review.

"It's disappointing," said Rama Yade, France's human rights minister, of the U.S. position — which she described as in contradiction with America's long tradition as a defender of human rights.

According to some of the declaration's backers, U.S. officials expressed concern in private talks that some parts of the declaration might be problematic in committing the federal government on matters that fall under state jurisdiction. In numerous states, landlords and private employers are allowed to discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation; on the federal level, gays are not allowed to serve openly in the military.

Carolyn Vadino, a spokeswoman for the U.S. mission to the U.N., stressed that the United States — despite its unwillingness to sign — condemned any human rights violations related to sexual orientation.

Gay rights activists nonetheless were angered by the U.S. position.

"It's an appalling stance — to not join with other countries that are standing up and calling for decriminalization of homosexuality," said Paula Ettelbrick, executive director of the International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission.

She expressed hope that the U.S. position might change after President-elect Barack Obama takes office in January.

Also denouncing the U.S. stance was Richard Grenell, who until two months ago had been the chief spokesman for the U.S. mission to the U.N.

"It is ridiculous to suggest that there are legal reasons why we can't support this resolution — common sense says we should be the leader in making sure other governments are granting more freedoms for their people, not less," said Grenell, who described himself as a gay Republican. "The U.S. lack of support on this issue only dims our once bright beacon of hope and freedom for those who are persecuted and oppressed."

More than 50 countries opposed to the declaration, including members of the Organization of the Islamic Conference, issued a joint statement Thursday criticizing the initiative as an unwarranted attempt to give special prominence to gays and lesbians. The statement suggested that protecting sexual orientation could lead to "the social normalization and possibly the legalization of deplorable acts" such as pedophilia and incest.

The declaration also has been opposed by the Vatican, a stance which prompted a protest in Rome earlier this month.

A Vatican spokesman, the Rev. Federico Lombardi, said the Roman Catholic Church opposed the death penalty and other harsh repression of gays and lesbians, but he expressed concern that the declaration would be used as pressure against those who believe marriage rights should not be extended to gays.

A new Vatican statement, issued Thursday, endorsed the call to end criminal penalties against gays, but said that overall the declaration "gives rise to uncertainty in the law and challenges existing human norms."

The European nations backing the declaration waged their campaign in conjunction with the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

The Dutch foreign affairs minister, Maxime Verhagen, said countries that endorsed that 1948 document had no right to carve out exceptions based on religion or culture that allowed discrimination against gays.

"Human rights apply to all people in all places at all times," he said. "I will not accept any excuse."

He acknowledged that the new declaration had only symbolic import, but said it marked the first time such a large number of nations had raised the cause of gay rights in the context of General Assembly proceedings.

"This statement aims to make debate commonplace," he said. "It is not meant to be a source of division, but to eliminate the taboo that surrounds the issue."

Although the declaration's backers were pleased that nations on six continents had signed it, there were only two from Asia and four from Africa.

Oldie But Goodie

One of my "old college buddies" (yeah, all right, I only graduated like 6 years ago) use to mimic this for me all the time. I would fall over laughing every time but had never seen it for myself until today. Someone in my office said "old man," to which I spouted this impression of an impression...of an impression. I then had to explain, which led me to look for it on the magical interwebs (seriously, what the hell did we do without it?!).

Anyway, enjoy, it's awesome (the first bit is the one my friend would crack me up with):

I ♥ Tina Fey & 30 Rock!

My super-awesome, so-totally-great friend, Scott Adsit (a.k.a. Pete Hornberger) invited me to the set of 30 Rock yesterday! (Only fair, as I brought him up to our offices a while back. Granted his job is way cooler, but hey, he's a comic-book nerd, so it was cool to show off my job as well!) I'm a huge 30 Rock fan, so this was very exciting!

I got to see a scene with him, Tina Fey & Alec Baldwin. I only really just said hello to Mr. Baldwin along with the rest of the crew, but I did get to talk to Tina for awhile. And boy, she is just as cool as I imagined. Seriously sweet and very funny. I love her! I also got to hang out with Judah Friedlander for awhile while he waited to see if he had to be in the background of a scene. He's also a super cool guy and I'm definitely going to be checking out his stand-up ASAP! Everyone on the set was incredibly nice! (Between this and Heroes, I'm really starting to want to work in T.V.!)

I also got to see Tracy Jordan's and Jenna's dressing rooms, sit at Kenneth's page desk, and walk through Jack Donaghy's office and Liz Lemon's apartment! I'm not supposed to be posting the pictures, so I won't, but I HAVE to post this one! That's my pal Scott, Tina and me! She's adorable! Ahh!! What an awesome night! Thank you, Scott!!!!!!!

The End.

PS This couldn't have come at a better time, as some complete f@$%-wad tried to break into my car last week by prying the door open, which was then stuck in this position. They also broke the molding along the edge of the car where the door hits it which now has to be replaced. All this coming to a grand total of $541. Thanks. And they didn't even get in, and even if they HAD, all they would have found was a bunch of CD books. ARGH! So, yeah, this brightened up my day a bit! ;-)

28 November 2008


I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! I have to say, I am so thankful for my family! It's a bit sappy, I know, but they are THE best! I brought a friend who wasn't able to get to his family this year and they were great, just adding him in to everything. I know a lot of families are cool like that, but it really just made me love them even more. And also they all make great food, which is a plus because I cannot cook at all! hahaha

Anyway, there are other things to be thankful for, and here's the Marvel video about that exact thing (note: I'm in there!):

Week Late, But Still Great!

If you missed Saturday Night Live last week, here's my favourite bit. SNL has made me actually adore Justin Timberlake! Between "Dick In a Box" and THIS... fucking A!

JT is also fantastic in the Beyoncé video skit, but I can't find it online. I'm sure it'll make it's way back on youtube or something eventually, keep your eyes peeled!

I'm gonna go listen to "Sexy Back" now...

Google Loves Magritte! Yay!

Just a cool thing I saw this morning as I was about to sign in to my email. You know how Google sometimes dresses up its logo (usually for holidays). Well, today it was dressed up with Rene Magritte stuff!! (See?)

I was pleasantly surprised as I consider Rene Magritte one of my favourite artists! I'm not a big art person. I did horrible in art history class, I rarely go to museums and when I do, I don't pay as much attention as most do. But there are a few artists who stuff I adore (Picasso being another one). I guess I like more modern art more, though some of it is ridiculously pretentious. ANYWAY, I found Magritte when I was at MOMA for some class in college. I can't remember what it was for, but I had to choose a painting I liked and do something with it. I found this (actually I think it was another in the series, but the idea was the same):

I just thought it was super cool how it was daytime in the sky and nighttime on the street. Then I started looking at some of his other stuff and saw all these paintings that I'd seen before, that are also great. These are some of his fairly well-known ones:

Awesomely enough, I found this t-shirt a year or so ago on Threadless (excellent place for cool t-shirts, by the way, if you live under a rock and haven't heard of it :-P), combining the above painting with one of my favourite video games of all time (Mario Bros., duh). Bought it immediately, of course:

Anyway, that's all, just thought it was cool that Google was showcasing him (if you click the logo, it directs you to Magritte images and sites) and wanted to point him out in case anybody who reads this never heard of him. Definitely check out his stuff if you haven't!

The End.

PS On quick wikipedia check, I see that today is his birthday, so that must be what brought it on. I guess there's a Magritte fan in Google's creative department... haha

19 November 2008

Ack! Horrendous!

Found on the Bendis board (good place to find stuff)! This is atrocious! Its moronic! Makes you wonder who actually voted for Obama and WHY. Seriously, what is up with this!?

R. Beast's Out of Love - A Webcomic!

I won't claim that I'm a big webcomic reader. In fact, I only check out a few here and there. But this one, R. Beast's Out of Love, is one that I will definitely follow regularly from now on. While it is a bit bizarre and cryptic, I'm still utterly enthralled and very curious to see where it's going. Not to mention, the art style is fantastic! So, if you like webcomics or you like indie comics, please take a look, there's only 21 pages so far so it's not hard to catch up!

(Here's a sample, it's page 12.)

All I know is, I want my own R.Beast-style mask! :-) And how cool is that bird!?! :-P

I've Been Interviewed! Yay!

I was pulled aside at the Baltimore Comicon for an interview and here it is!

Living Wednesday to Wednesday #31.4: the Jen Grünwald Interview!

There's even a video! There's a link to it on the page, but I figured I'd embed it here. You can't hear it all that well, but the above link has it transcribed. My voice is a bit raspy, I think that was due a lot of partying the night before, but I must say...I like the way it sounds! I should mess up my voice more often!

Anyway, here's the video, but check the link if you can't understand what's being said. Thanks to Stephen for giving a crap about what I've got to say, and especially for linking the blog! Sweet!

The End.


I haven't been proud to be an American for a long time now. Finally, I can feel it again! I actually WANT to put up a flag!!!! This is amazing! Here's to change! I don't expect everything to be fixed immediately, but I actually have hope and a good feeling he will be able to get us on the right track! I can't wait to travel abroad now and not be embarrassed about where I come from... ;-)

Thank you to everyone who voted for Obama. You made the right choice. :)

WOO HOO!!!!!!

Mark Twain Is Smart

"The so-called Christian nations are the most enlightened and progressive...but in spite of their religion, not because of it. The Church has opposed every innovation and discovery from the day of Galileo down to our own time, when the use of anesthetic in childbirth was regarded as a sin because it avoided the biblical curse pronounced against Eve. And every step in astronomy and geology ever taken has been opposed by bigotry and superstition. The Greeks surpassed us in artistic culture and in architecture five hundred years before Christian religion was born."
--Mark Twain

Just a great quote I found on another blog. Man, how terrifying is the childbirth anesthetic thing?! Cripes!

The End.

Garth Ennis' Night Witches

I went down to my favourite comic shop last night (Jim Hanley's Universe) to say hi to me pals Garth and Russ as they signed copies of their new book The Night Witches! (Actually the series is called Garth Ennis Battlefields, which will be three stories, three issues each. Night Witches is the first, drawn by fantastic Jack of Fables artist, Russ Braun.)

I got my signed copy and read it on the way home (after having a few beers with the lads, of course). LOVE IT! The story is awesome, about Russian FEMALE bomber pilots!! Fantastic! And Russ did a bang-up job on it as well. Highly recommended!!

There are two covers, the John Cassaday one is my favourite though:

And here's my favourite page (might try to wrangle this out of Russ in the future...hehe):Anyway, definitely pick this up if A) you like Garth's work; B) you like war stories; C) you like tough chick stories; D) you like pretty sequential art; or E) you want to read a great comic. And this isn't my friend bias talking, promise!

Oh, one last thing, Garth is really great for writing about true war stories, if you think this is cool, definitely read about the real Night Witches!

I Love Carrie Bradshaw!

I've been watching Sex and the City from the beginning on HBO OnDemand and I am loving it. Never thought I would like it this much, but it's excellent. Can NEVER. EVER. EVER. watch this with my mother (like she wants me to, she loves this show), however.

Anyway, the reason for this post: The end of Season 3, Episode 3. Carrie gets a thank you note for attending a fundraiser from the bitch who married her ex. It says something along the lines of "So sorry I couldn't be their."

Carrie laughed at the thing that would have drove given me a similar reaction. She spelled THERE wrong. haha She calls Miranda laughing and calling her an idiot. Awesome.

Obviously, she might not be an idiot, sometimes you just write things incorrectly even if you know the right way...but it's amazing how many people mess up the their/there/they're and other similar grammar traps. And I'm using the term "traps" lightly, as this is really not that difficult. ::sigh::

Anyway, that moment made me really love Carrie.

Now I Want A Frakkin' XBox 360

I played Fable 2 at my friend's house the other day for about an hour and a half and I can't stop thinking about it!!! I'm already looking on ebay to see if there are cheap used XBoxes... ::sigh::

It's cool, cuz your character changes with the choices you make (though I haven't played long enough for it to happen to me yet). You can even get fat if you eat to much fatty foods! But mainly you turn either good or bad depending on whether you do good deeds or bad ones. Frakkin' awesome. And it's also interesting b/c you fight villains etc., but you also flirt with and marry people, have kids and homes (you can have multiple homes and rent them out). Craziness! I couldn't find any screen shots with the girl (which I picked, you can be either or), but her are some. I believe the dude is flirting in the first one.

This is just some art or whatever, but I liked it. I love your trusty dog sidekick that goes with you everywhere. I named mine Ajax. :-P

I know if I do somehow manage to get a cheap XBox and this game, I'll either never leave my house, or I'll play religiously for a few weeks before I get distracted and forget about it. Either one kind of sucks, but I'm not thinking about that right now. Right now I'm thinking about avenging my sister, getting new Will or Skills and learning new expressions! haha

Very Relevant Quote

"We will destroy from within what we are trying to protect from without."
— Dwight Eisenhower

Ok, so I got it from The Daily Show guest Eugene Jarecki (whose book I now want to read, The American Way of War), but still. Awesome and very fitting. I wish our government would pay attention to smart people. ::sigh::

Anyway, not to be too serious, here's an AMAZING clip of Jason Jones talking to the folks over in Wasilla where our dear Sarah Palin seems to think the best people are made. This is actually the second time The Daily Show has had a segment in Wasilla. While they're both hilarious (and scary), I like this one better because he tries to find out what the mayor of Wasilla is actually responsible for and how that prepares someone to be the Vice President of the United States...

Starbuck! ::sigh::

Starbuck. I love her. She's so the awesomest ever. Once upon a time I was obsessed with Xena. I still love her, don't get me wrong, but Starbuck is the Xena of the FUTURE! ;-) haha

Seriously though, she's awesome, so I'm going to be her for Halloween. I've got the tank tops, the dog tags, a gun hip holster and I'm just waiting for my replica gun! I also plan to dye my hair blonde, but if it doesn't come out right, I'll get a wig. (The dying my hair thing is not that big a deal as I change my hair colour nearly every 6 months.) I even bought the Galactica lietenent pips to put on my jacket!

There really isn't much more to say, but I'll post pictures of me in costume when the time comes. In the meantime, look how awesome she is:

PS I didn't mention, but if you live under a rock, Starbuck is from the new Battlestar Galactica series on the Sci-Fi channel. :-P

I KNOW he's a Scientologist!

Since I've been talking about Beck all last week (and continue to, obviously), I've been hearing from everyone "He's a Scientologist, you know."

Yes. I know.

And I don't like it either. But what are you going to do? I love his music (and his voice... ::sigh::) and that's that.

Anyway, here's an article I found. It makes me feel a little better about it...but I really wish he just thought it was funny to be a Scientologist or something...

Beck, The Scientologist

While I'm not a fan of ANY religion, this one seems particularly stupid because the book it's based on was written in many of its believers' lifetimes AND by a KNOWN science-fiction writer!!! Does that not seem suspicious to these people??? What the hell?! At least for most of the other religions (I say "most of" only because there might be another I don't know about), the "holy books" and whatnot were written so far back that you can't "prove" any of it was fake or whatever.

Ahhhh...I still love him, though. ;-)

The End.

PS And just look at him! Adorable...


Where the hell have I been?!?! I haven't missed more than a day (or two) since I started this blog, then I go 5 days without posting! What gives?! BECK! Beck is the reason!! My most favouritest musician in all the world! The one artist I could never give up, the one I would choose if I had to chose one to listen to for the rest of my life.

And I got to see him THREE NIGHTS IN A ROW!!!! WOOOOO!!! So super frakkin' awesome, I can't even explain.

He played pretty much the exact same sets the first two night, but then switched it up a little for the last. For example, he started with Loser the first two, and Devil's Haircut the last. But he put Loser in during the middle, but started it off with a little guitar solo. Sweet. Also, only on Friday (the last night) did he play any songs I didn't recognise. I'm not sure if they were just from the newest album which I haven't heard TOO many times (though I think I'd at least recognise them) or if they were new, as of yet unheard, ones. That would be nice. But I have no idea.

Anyway, here's some pics from the three nights. He had like a giant Lite-Brite® board behind him that did differnt stuff, like show pictures or giant colour light shows or my favourite, showing him and the band.

This is my view the first night:

Here's the second night. MUCH closer, but also MUCH more expensive. Damn you StubHub! (But TOTALLY worth it!) (And this show I was accompanied by the person who introduced me to Beck in Junior High when I was 12 or 13. Awesome.)

I thought this bit was pretty cool, they all stepped away from their instruments and came up front with little handheld electronic type shit. They played Hell Yes and Clap Hands this way...and something else, I can't remember.

This chick was awesome. :-) I wish I was her...

Here's some from the last night, much further away, but still frakkin' awesome. I love him. Seriously. A lot.

Anyway, you can see some of the colour light show-y type stuff!

Lastly, I managed to snag bits of video here and there. Here's him "saying good-bye" after the encore on the last night:

And here's almost all of one of my favourite songs, which I've mentioned before:

I really miss going already, it became my nightly routine! :) (Oh yeah, this was up at United Palace all the way uptown on 175th St. I'd never heard of it before, but it's a really pretty place, very small, and I think it used to be a church!) '

I can't wait until he's back here. I think I have to go to every show he ever plays in NYC. :)

The End.

PS As if that wasn't enough, I've been listening to my entire collection of Beck on shuffle all day (and a bit this weekend, as well). :-P

Vote NO in Palin PBS Poll

Just take a second. It may seem silly, but any little bit to help influence people to NOT vote McCain/Palin is worth it. And this really is easy. PBS has an online poll posted asking if Sarah Palin is qualified. Apparently the Republicans knew about this in advance and are flooding the voting with YES votes. It's only a poll, but it will be reported on PBS, picked up by mainstream media, and can influence undecided voters in swing states. Please do two things -- takes 20 seconds. Click on link and vote yourself.

Here's the link: http://www.pbs.org/now/polls/poll-435.html

Then send this to every single Obama-Biden voter you know, and urge
them to vote and pass it on. The last thing we need is PBS having to say our viewers think Sarah/ Palin is qualified.

As a reward, watch this funny Palin clip!! I always loved David Letterman!!!

Sketchbook Series #2

I got a new sketch the other day, one I never thought I'd get, so I'm thrilled. Steve Dillon! However, my good friend (and artist of Jack of Fables) currently has it so I didn't get a chance to scan. Instead I'll post another one! haha

Since the first one I posted was Bryan Hitch, here's the sketch I got in San Diego from Bryan's inker, Andrew Currie (who, by the way, is a sweetheart). It's my girl Rogue!

I was almost going to have a Rogue-themed sketchbook, but I didn't want to be to limited so I just went with ladies (though I added the animal clause to get Lockheed, Ampersand and others in there). However, since Rogue's my favourite super hero, I've got a few of her already, and I'm sure there'll be others. :) This one's an awesome rendition!

Tonight's The Daily Show

Real quick. Too funny to not post about. The Daily Show tonight had a segment where they taped a bunch of old Jewish Floridians watching the presidential debate and their reactions. The segment ended with this most hilarious bit:

Old Woman: She's a big horse, isn't she? I shouldn't say that. Thats's...nothing against her.
Old Man: Who?
Old Woman: Michelle. She'...uh...
Old Man: She's got a big tuchas.
Old Woman: She's a big horse, I said.
Old Man: Yeah. A lot of black women have big tuchas.
Old Woman: Not all of them. They have to come from a certain tribe.

Hahahahahaha Old people. Funny, but scary... :-P

(Also, this segment was hosted by my new favourite correspondent, Wyatt Cenac!!)

My New Favourite Thing!!

I'm currently in Baltimore for the comic convention. So far so good, I got to watch Brian Bendis debate Robert Kirkman, hang out with friends I only get to see at these things, and picked up a few cool Marvel drinking glasses.

On the con floor today, however, I found my new favourite thing: The Basics by Brian Smith! I've known Brian a long time as he was an editor at Marvel when I first started, but he left soon after that. I had no idea he was making these awesome comics now! This is the awesomest thing. You need to see these. And if you're in Baltimore, please stop by his table and pick up his cool comic & buttons bundle (for around $3, I think)! Cute and funny...and just great!! See for yourself:

Tonight's game was awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Since they say it better than I can:

On the threshold of a loss that might have left them with little more than a mathematical chance of playing in the postseason, the Mets stormed back from a three-run deficit in the final three innings to beat the Cubs, 7-6, on Thursday night.

One inning after Ryan Church ad-libbed a slide to score the tying run, Carlos Beltran lined a single off the glove of rookie first baseman Micah Hoffpauir to score Jose Reyes from second base with the decisive run in a 7-6 victory that moved the Mets to within one game of the idle first-place Phillies in the National League East and assured them of at least a share of the lead in the race for the NL Wild Card.

It was especially fun for me, as it was my last game at Shea. :( I took a bunch of pics of the stadium and I bought the final season program and the 2008 yearbook (for no small fee, either). But I lost my voice screaming, while I sat one mere row underneath the overhang, luckily not getting wet...but still freezing.

Great game. So glad I stayed for the whole thing. Kick. Ass. :)

The End.

PS I honestly don't think we have much of a chance to get into the playoffs, but here's hoping!

Mets Stress

I got this email from a co-worker. Though it upsets me that the Mets are blowing it, I still found it pretty funny:

I was in traffic all morning trying to get across the Tappan Zee Bridge. Once I was able to get across the bridge, I saw that someone was trying to jump off. Cops were able to save him. I did take this picture when I passed. This is the guy that was trying to jump off the bridge...

Heh heh

I also received an email of this link to an Onion article from different co-worker. You don't have to read the whole thing, but Mets fans should definitely read the last paragraph before closing the page:

Struggling Mets Combine to Form Carlos Voltron

I'm supposed to be going to the game with my mother tonight. I'm really hoping it doesn't get rained out because it'll be the last game I go to in Shea Stadium. I'm looking forward to the new stadium (especially the roomier seats), but I'm going to miss the place. It's sad... :(

More importantly, though, we need to get to the frakkin' playoffs!!! Come on, guys! Pull it together!!! (And if you Phillies can start blowing it too, that'd be a big help! Thanks! ;-P)

The End.

Heroes is Back! Woot!

Heroes started up again last night and it was good. I know Season Two got a lot of shit from fans...and I'll admit it wasn't as good as Season One, but the new season looks like it'll get back on track to being awesome. :) Future Peter is awesome, Hiro and Ando are fun again, and Claire-bear is as cute as ever. (And boy is the "dark" Claire frakkin' HOT!) I think I might start liking "Veronica Mars" too. ;-P

Anyway, since the show has started up again, I thought I'd post the pictures from my tour of the Heroes studio last July. Having the awesome job that I have, I've made some pretty awesome friends that like to do nice things, and Jeph Loeb is one of those friends. If you don't know, he's a very popular comic-book writer and in recent years has become the Executive Producer for this little show. ;-P So, right before the San Diego Comcicon , I stopped in LA and Jeph was kind enough to let me wander around the set...for like 6 hours!!! The crew is AWESOME, they were all so nice and let me go pretty much wherever I wanted and I got to hear a bunch of secrets and meet some of the cast! hehehe

So without further ado (aka babbling), here's my Heroes experience!

Jack Coleman and Ali Larter (she's so pretty):

Adrian Pasdar!!

There's the man himself, Jeph Loeb, as seen through the non-wall of the fake bathroom:

They've got this awesome wall with pics of all the fallen characters!

Remember this door to Mohinder's dad's apartment?

The famous floor!! Soooooo awesome that I got to walk on it!! :)

More of Isaac's-loft-turned-Mohinder's-lab:

The map of all the hero connections. I'm pointing to the prop guy that was showing me around. They got to use crew pics to fill up the map! :)

Sylar's watch shop! REALLY cool!

Workin' at Sylar's worktable! heh I love this picture...

The apartment where Mohinder and Parkman stayed with Molly:

Peter's bedroom... heh heh heh

Claire's kitchen!!

Previous tenants of the studio — including GOLDEN GIRLS!!!

The prop room was fun, I got tons of cool souvenirs!

Awesome view from the lot:

There were more, but I can't post everything...

I got to watch two scenes being filmed, each only a couple minutes long, but were filmed from every angle, focusing on every character, so it took ages. I even got to wear the headset for one of them (writer Jesse Alexander is also super nice and let me use his!). It was awesome! I saw a scene with Mohinder and Maya, but since I don't really like their characters (especially Mohinder) I didn't ask to take pictures with them. haha Mohinder did ask me where Jeph went at one point, though, so I talked to him. ;-P haha

So, all in all, AWESOME experience! My next studio tour should be 30 Rock...can't wait for that one! Tina Fey is super cool!!!

The End.
