The Fall television series is finally upon is, so for the last two or so weeks, I’ve been getting loads of preview material for upcoming shows.
I’ll admit, while I love television I have a major commitment problem. I’ll DVR some stuff, then never get around to watching it; then when it comes on DVD, I’ll feel like it’s too much pressure to bang out a whole season at once. I’m working on these issues, but in the meantime, each season I will try to catch a new series right from the beginning and then watch it in “real time” — this happened for me with NBC’s The Office, SCI FI’s Battlestar Galactica, and NBC’s Heroes. For the 2008 Fall season, the new Fox series Fringe, created by JJ Abrams, is definitely my “real time” show of this season.
I didn’t know too much about Fringe until the other day when a large box and poster tube arrived from Fox’s publicity department. In it were Fringe promo items — lenticular notepad, backpack, t-shirt, poster, and the limited edition 2008 Comic Con comic book — and an envelope from the FBI marked “CONFIDENTIAL.”
Time to get viral! (Photos at right and here below.)
Oh, I’m so in my glory now, because I love me some Wall-E and WALL-E himself. And my Mama (who you might remember from this guest entry) knows it too, so when she saw this 10-inch action figure at her local Blockbuster store, she got it for me … for no special occasion, just cuz she loves me, her only daughter :-)
And I didn’t know it was coming, hell, I didn’t even know it existed. Now that I look, there are a ton of Wall-E related toys out there. But that’s for another time. For now, let’s look at my little item.
Ever since I was a child, I loved getting stuff in the mail, whether it was my latest issue of the official Star Wars Fan Club newsletter Bantha Tracks or a letter from a friend away at Summer Camp.
Now that I run a fairly successful entertainment website, boxes of DVDs, CDs, and comic books come in the mail every day — my dream come true! But every so often, something pleasantly unexpected arrives.
A few weeks ago, I received a small box and inside it was a snowglobe from Disney! It was one of those snowglobes that you can insert a picture into the center, and inside this one was an invite to a cocktail party hosted by Disney.
I think this is a cool little item all on its own, but if you saw the numerous amounts of Disney-themed snowglobes in my home, you’d understand just how much this means to me.
