Marauding Monday to you all, my little gingersnaps. I trust you had a lovely Thanksgiving weekend. And for those of you who aren't American (wait, there's places that are outside of America??), I hope you had a lovely weekend. How many of you went shopping on Black Friday? I have never in my 37 years of life, gone shopping on Black Friday. I hope to keep that tradition going until my dying day. Why? Because PEOPLE ARE CRAZY.
Case in point... a lady at a Walmart pepper sprayed at least 20 people in an attempt to get more merchandise. Which Walmart did this happen in? At the Walmart CLOSEST TO MY HOUSE. Oh yes, if I happened to stake out Walmart on Black Friday, I would've gotten a face full of pepper spray. Which is just one more reason to stay home and sleep in. (and then shop online)
Oh and they are still looking for her! Which means she is roaming free and able to pepper spray next year's Black Friday.

In other news, several people are reporting that the birth scene in "Breaking Dawn" has given them epileptic seizures. I'm not epileptic, so it didn't give me a seizure, but it did give me PTSD. I'm currently on medication and hope to forget the traumatic scene of emo-vamp biting his way through his wife's womb to deliver their freak-of-nature baby. More Xanax please!
New Twilight Reportedly Causes Seizures
Birthing scene too intense for epileptics
(Newser) – Twilight, Breaking Dawn: Part One might be just a bit too sparkly for epilepsy sufferers. Several people have reportedly developed seizures during the film’s infamous birthing scene, as red, black, and white flash across the screen, ABC News reports. In one case, a Sacramento-area man convulsed so violently that paramedics were called in, and the rest of the screening was canceled.
In celebrity news, Arnold Schwarzenegger is insisting on doing his own stunts in his new film. Because he's just that awesome. Arnold can do no wrong. I don't care if he cheated on his wife or bankrupted my state... he gets a clean slate from me. It doesn't make sense, so don't even try to question my reasoning. Anyone who's poster graced my childhood bedroom walls can do no wrong. So I guess that includes George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley. And Holly Hobby.
Arnold has been filming "Last Stand" in New Mexico for nearly two months. Sources on the set tell TMZ ... A.S. has politely declined the producers' offer to put stuntmen in the dangerous scenes, because he thinks it's just more believable for him to do it himself.
As for what Arnold is doing ... among other things, in one scene he's driving a Camaro, dragging a "bad guy behind" -- even though the scene involves crazy driving, it seems the bad guy is the one who needs a double.
Arnold is also doing a scene where he's suspended high above the ground by ropes -- we're told this scene is dangerous.
Speaking of Arnold... here is a clip of him doing the commentary of Total Recall. If you have 4 minutes to spare, you MUST listen to this. Arnold should do a commentary on every movie. Arnold Commentary FTW.
This Is A Video Of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Total Recall DVD Commentary Where He Describes Everything Very Literally
Gawker brings us a pre-Black Friday miracle, in this higlights reel of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Total Recall DVD commentary, where he basically just describes everything that’s happening in the move for two straight hours.
As an example, here is the insight Arnold brings to the famous “Two Weeks Lady” scene:
This is a wonderful scene where I come up to Mars as an old lady. As a fat old lady. And I’m actually hiding underneath the thing which is the amazing thing which we find out later on. Now things are going wrong with hte face, the uncontrollable distortion of the face and everything and that’s what busts me right now because the face does not stop it says the wrong things all the time. What a surprise to come up there as an old lady, then all of a sudden the thing malfunctions, and then they catch me. But of course it’s not just a face, or a head, it’s also an explosive device.
Also his take on the three-breasted woman is a REVELATION. If you can make it through all 4 minutes of this, reward yourself by watching it again. Reminder: This man was Governor of the third largest state in America.
And now, for a Thanksgiving Day FAIL!

Hey, WTF??!! Well now we know where the Prince of Darkness does his shopping.
And that's all the time I have for today. Grab yourself a Wii and a can of pepper spray and annihilate anyone in your way. Until tomorrow then...
They are just saying 'walla- walla"! This is called a “walla- walla scene” and it is used to make the extras look like they are talking to each other. The only thing they have to say is walla over and over again to do the trick.
If you want to make it more realistic just mumble animatedly reproducing the fluctuations of conversation without much use of real phrases. In the U.K. it’s called “rhubarb”, and in Germany it’s called a “rhabarber”.
People literally say these words to fake conversations.
Did you know that the average extra’s salary is $112 a day?
