Two Years

I try not to talk about work on this blog, mainly because I know my bosses read it and I think it's better safe than sorry. However, a milestone happened at work today that I think is worth noting.

As of today, I have been working in Athabasca for two years.

I'm still not exactly sure how that happened. In a job where the reputation is you just stay at a station like Athabasca for a year or less until moving on to something bigger and better, I'm still here.

It's starting to feel good here. I've made some friends, made some connections, things are going good. What can I say? I'm starting to like it here.

The next milestone comes on May 25. On that day, this officially becomes the job I've held the longest.

Thanks for that personal moment...now back to the usual stuff I talk about.

Kevin Smith just announced that Money Shots, the online video journal for his upcoming film Zack and Miri Make a Porno, will be premiering on May 15. All I can say is if it's as good as Train Wreck, his online video journal for Clerks II, then it's going to be great.

Lucasfilm has also just announced the latest batch of Star Wars action figures that'll be exclusive to Disney theme parks.

As you know, because of Star Tours, there's all kinds of Star Wars exclusives available only at Disneyland and Disney World.

First, they brought us Star Wars action figures of the Star Tours characters. Then, it was Disney characters as Star Wars characters. Coming in 2008, it's...

The Muppets as Star Wars characters!

The line up is:

Kermit the Frog as Luke Skywalker
Miss Piggy as Princess Leia
Fozzie Bear as Chewbacca
The Great Gonzo as Darth Vader
Rizzo the Rat as Yoda
Beaker as C-3P0

This isn't the first time that Star Wars and the Muppets have crossed paths. Who can forget that classic episode of the Muppet Show with guest hosts Chewbacca, C-3P0, R2-D2, Luke Skywalker, and Luke's identical cousin Mark Hamill? Great stuff.

And, the last thing, it's been rumored for years, but it's about 90% official today.

As we all know, it was around four years ago or so that Jay Leno announced that he'd be retiring from The Tonight Show and that Conan O'Brien would be his replacement. The question that some started asking back then was, "Well, who's going to be taking over as the host of Late Night?"

Well, it looks like Conan's personal choice is getting the job. Starting in 2009, it's going to be....

Late Night with Jimmy Fallon
