The new Transformers movie has broken poor A.O. Scott's brain:

“Transformers: Dark of the Moon” is among Mr. Bay’s best movies and by far the best 3-D sequel ever made about gigantic toys from outer space. I apologize if this sounds like faint praise, but let me provide some perspective. The second of Mr. Bay’s “Transformers” movies, “Revenge of the Fallen,” released in 2009, struck me as not only the worst movie of that year — measured in raw box office dollars, it was certainly among the most popular — but also as irrefutable evidence that our once proud civilization was in a state of precipitous decline. Perhaps my own enjoyment of “Dark of the Moon” is further evidence. I can’t decide if this movie is so spectacularly, breathtakingly dumb as to induce stupidity in anyone who watches, or so brutally brilliant that it disarms all reason.

In a similar vein of stupidity-or-possibly-brilliance, I'm enjoying the new season of True Blood. Probably because I fast-forward all the boring bits to give myself a diet of 100% Pure TB Crack. (Yeah, I totally even downloaded the leaked episode.) My life will be complete if the show writers include the bit where, possible spoiler based on (a regrettable) knowledge of the books ) Lol.

New True Blood mini-episode: Eric & Pam. Given my obsession with So You Think You Can Dance, I think you'll understand why I found this absolutely hilarious. It was nearly as good as fanfiction.

(ETA: It's worth reading this from Racialicious about that video, though.)
