Cocktails and Dinosaurs: News and Libations for the Weekend of FRIDAY THE 13TH!

Semi-weekly posts that were intruding on my happy hour schedule, but I'm bringing it back!

This is the Scott Pilgrim trailer with the panels from the graphic novel replacing the live action-ness. You should watch it. Then read the books. Then watch the movie. Do it.
  • ZOMBIES!!! Who doesn't love them? The comic book series, The Walking Dead, is being turned into a TV series on AMC. You won't have to wait long for zombies to invade your TV screen, but if October 2010 is too far way, you may want to consider finding your immobile somewhat rotten mate for life on ZombieHarmony.

  • How do I segue from zombies to Korean girls dancing with pizza? Oh, that should do it.

  • Wyclef Jean for President of Haiti. Who wouldn't support this? Maybe Pras, fellow ex-Fugee, who is supporting Michel Martell as the more "competent" candidate. Did Martell get nominated for Golden Globe in 2005? I don't think so.

  • Holy Shit!! The original lineup of Van Halen is getting back together to record a new album. When did money become more important than holding a grudge?

  • Johnny Marr is writing the theme song to the new David Cross TV series "The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret" and you should follow the link to more links to the pilot and trailer for the previously mentioned TV series.

  • Countdown to the Polaris Music Prize 2010! Fucked Up won last year. Who will win this year? Check out the short list and let me know your predictions. I think there is going to be a five-way tie.
Cocktail of the Week: Sangria!!

Sangria is a great summer beverage. This one is from our favorite NYC brunch spots, Sacred Chow. Fruit is a great addition to any drink, add some wine and brandy and it really is perfect for any season.
