As you may have noticed, my Veronica Mars week was kind of a failure. Sigh. Life got in the way and now I have the blog blahs and this is the best I can do for a post. Hopefully I will be inspired soon and you will be inundated with post after post after post. In the meantime, go rent Veronica Mars so that we can discuss it and hopefully I'll be back soon!

Reason #2 to watch Veronica Mars

It's sick how good the music on this show is. Here are a few of my favorites (top picks are "I Hear the Bells", "Sway", "Feel So Free" and "The Edge of the Ocean"):

Get a playlist! Standalone player Get Ringtones

And then there's "Momentary Thing" by Something Happens. Awesome song, but unfortunately it wasn't available through and most of the YouTube videos for it will spoil certain Veronica Mars storylines, so here's a random Joan of Arcadia themed video that includes the song:

Reason #1 to watch Veronica Mars

These reasons are in no particular order, but this one is definitely near the top of my list. There's this character named Dick Casablancas and even just a look or one word from him makes me happy. He's hilarious or, more specifically, the dialogue on Veronica Mars is hilarious, especially when it comes from him. He's my Dad's favorite character too. I think we all cheer a little bit on the inside when he comes on screen.

One of my favorite Dick Casablancas (I have problems with not including his last name!) scenes. His fraternity is accused of raping women and he's asking Veronica for help proving they didn't do it.

And another video dedicated to the genius that is Dick Casablancas. My personal favorite moment comes at 2:22ish.

my new obsession

So I recently discovered Veronica Mars and I'm completely obsessed. I watched all 3 seasons by myself, then got my parents hooked on it and rewatched all 3 seasons with them. Then I bought all 3 seasons on DVD (we had previously rented them). And then I found this awesome website that lists all the music from the episodes, and I downloaded all the music. So yeah, I'm slightly obsessed. In fact, I even bought the first season of Party Down, based solely upon the fact that it's from the same people that did Veronica Mars and has a bunch of the same people in it. (It is also awesome, by the way.) If you have never seen Veronica Mars, I would highly recommend that you check it out. The WB website rotates through the 3 seasons, so you can currently watch seasons 1 and 2 here. And also, if you have seen it, why is it that you never told me about it and I had to discover it on my own?

As you may have noticed, I've had nothing to blog about lately, so for the next little bit, I'm going to post on my favorite things about this show, in hopes that I'll convince you to go watch it. (Yes, I know I have no life!) For starters, here's a little promo clip for the show from Comic-Con:
