Is it just me or are movie posters getting supaflydope lately? I was browsing Animal New York tonight and one of their bloggers briefly profiled these sweet “minimalist” film posters.

When I saw those, I immediately thought of this. (WANT)

Recently, my co-blogging edub partner mentioned buying this masterpiece. Now, she’s on the right track (…yes baby, she was born that way). But I want more! I want TV shows to consistently produce high quality posters as the norm.

Poster art is serious business to this edubber. How serious? Theme-of-my-bat-mitzvah serious. That’s right. Movie posters adorned the walls of the colorfully decorated Belvedere Recreation Center in the fall of ’92 when I celebrated becoming a daughter of the commandments and my mom caught [Redacted] smoking pot in the boys’ bathroom. I digress.

It seems like, thanks to the interweb, film posters are emerging from designers all over with unique, swanky takes on their Silver Screen favs. So I ask, what about us boobtoobers? Where’s the creative force designing 2d-iconography for our favorite sitcoms or serials?

It’s revolution time people (too soon?). It’s time for every tv show to create a poster, just as every movie creates a poster. Separate is not equal. Honestly though, can someone please just print a black hole with the Henrickson family falling gracefully, surrounded by stamps of Nikki’s best one-liners? Is that so much to ask?

She liked this one. I much preferred hers.

When you’re right, you’re right.

This is the biggest week in edubTV history. To whoever is coming to this blog (it’s actually a lot of folks looking for Lauren Graham pics…awkward) thanks! On to the updates.

  • Big Love is totally wonderful this season and I’m loving it even more now that HBO isn’t backing down from LDS. Turns out they’re stepping on some pretty big-name toes in the Mormon community.
  • Anything involving Jason Bateman and Will Arnett will probably end up on my DVD rack. This viral video is doing wonders for their new show Sit Down, Shut Up.
  • Another internship for you in the TV industry, this time at the Travel Channel.
  • And finally, my favorite non-TV related link of the week: Bad Paintings of Barack Obama. Keep refreshing the page for some real gems. Some of these people needed to hear, “No, you can’t.”

Do you realize how much good TV comes on Wednesdays? Wednesday is my new Thursday. Booya.

  • A bunch of analog stations switched over to digital yesterday ahead of the new deadline. So far the FCC is reporting very few issues. Sidenote: A kid I work with just submitted his application for a converter box. I asked him “What took you so long?” He said, “I didn’t know anything about it.” If you don’t watch enough TV to hear about the digital transition, I think it’s okay if we transition without you.
  • Amy Poehler’s new show, Parks & Recreation,  started filming today! Color me geeked! Kristin Dos Santos has an interview with the star herself.
  • Angela Kinsey (Angela from The Office) and her husband Warren Lieberstein have separated. If the name Lieberstein sounds familiar, it’s because Warren is Paul Lieberstein’s (aka Toby Flenderson) brother.
  • I think a recession era economy, novelty shoes should be the first things to go. Check out these Family Guy and Fresh Prince insprired sneakers.
  • Speaking of late night music, U2 is going to perform on Lettermanfor a straight week. I’m sorry, but that just doesn’t sound appealing to me.
  • Speaking of LOST, it better watch it’s back. It’s losing viewers every week and it will have to compete with American Idol starting in March.
  • After 19 seasons The Simpsons got brand new opening titles. It’s the same general theme but we get to see a lot more of our town favorites. There’s also a few homages to past episodes in there.
  • Guess which washed up early 90’s rapper is getting a TV show? MC Hammer. I know, I was hoping for Snow too.
  • Tracy Morgan’s apartment caught fire due to a busted light in a fish tank. Surprisingly the fish were okay, as were the rest of the folks in his building.

I’m writing this and watching LOST at the same time. Gosh I wish I knew more about physics!

  • Top Chef is getting a spin-off! It’s called Top Chef Masters and it’s going to star master chefs I guess. I don’t quite get it just yet, but I’ll probably end up watching it.
  • Dark Knight got nominated for a Kid’s Choice Award. Not exactly the film’s target audience. I suppose it was better than Hotel For Dogs.
  • This Inglourius Basterds clip is making its way around the internet. It involves Brad Pitt, Quentin Tarantino and Nazi killing. That’s all you need to know. BJ Novak is in it too. Hopefully he’ll break the chain of bad luck Office stars have had with films.
  • My Favorite Non-TV Related Links of the Week: The latest addition to my Google Reader, This is why you’re fat. It’s essentially food porn. Also, I’ve become addicted to KenKen puzzles this week. Seriously, do one online, you’ll be addicted too.

Hip-hip hooray, time to get going. My online jeopardy audition is in 40 minutes.

  • Speaking of long-running game shows, Pat Sajak is kind of repulsed by the gay couple in this clip of Wheel of Fortune.  I am now repulsed by Pat Sajak.
  • Nancy Cartwright, the voice-talent behind Bart Simpson, has been using her Bart voice to promote Scientology events. That’s probably not going to go over so well.
  • Connie Britton is one of my new favorite actresses. Dalton Ross talks to her about the new season of Friday Night Lights.
  • I am seriously on the edge of my seat for Jon Hamm on 30 Rock. This clip is tiding me over.
  • This interview with Lauren Graham made me miss Gilmore Girls a little but I’m excited for her new show on ABC.
  • The format of My Life On The D-List is changing. The next season is going to be more like a talk-show. Not sure how I feel about this just yet.
  • My favorite non-TV related link of the week: Giant Inauguration Picture! Zoom in and out, it’s awesome. I think Clarence Thomas is sleeping.

  • Has Friday Night Lights always been on Hulu? I might’ve just missed it. Seasons 1 and 2 are on the site which means you can find me in front of my computer for the next several days. I don’t think I’ll finish in time for the January 16 return but it’s worth a shot.
  • Tim Allen and his wife Jane are expecting their first baby together. I only tell you so I have an excuse to link to the best mugshot ever.
  • This 2001 clip of Obama on Check, Please!, a local food review show is making its way around the internet. I also like corn cakes Mr. Obama. That’s going to be my opening line when we meet at the inauguration.
  • Kathy Griffin is no longer banned from The View. Hopefully she makes an appearance sometime soon. Anyone else watch her with Anderson Cooper on New Years Eve? A-Maz-Ing!
  • Sanjaya’s album is finally coming out creepers! This cover art will make your brain-box explode.
  • And finally, my favorite non-TV related link of the week: Instructables.com. This handy site will teach you how to do just about anything. Unrelated: This week my mom helped me sew up my very own Slanket (some of you may know it better as the Snuggie). Best invention ever. Make it yourself. It’s cheaper and you get to pick a cooler fabric.
