Playing with your words

This site is oddly addicting: Wordle

I don't know if it's because I'm into words and typography and design (my job involves all of those), or if I'm just weird, but I can't stop playing around with it. Here's the one I was just messing around with:



And here's the original words (courtesy of Ani Difranco):
i'm no heroine
i still answer to the other half of the race
i don't fool myself
like i fool you
i don't have the power
we just don't run this place

I recently learned that there is a reality show on A&E about the two Coreys (Haim and Feldman), conveniently called "The Two Coreys." If you grew up with me, you know how much I loved the Coreys, especially Haim, whose posters were plastered all over my walls. (Along with my NKOTB posters, of course.) I haven't really kept up with either Corey over the years, though I did see Feldman at the MGM in Vegas once, but I still can't believe I didn't know about this show, which is now in its second season! After looking at the Web site, I think I'm too afraid to watch it. It just looks sad. I've heard all kinds of past rumors about Haim, and I'd rather think of him as the boy in The Lost Boys and Dream a Little Dream than a recovering addict/porn star, or whatever he's been up to lately.

A reality show I do watch, and LOOOVE: So You Think You Can Dance. I don't know what it is exactly about this show that makes it, in my opinion, so much better than nearly every other reality show, but I freaking love this one. If it weren't for Mary, one of the judges, it'd be perfect. The dances are usually really, really good, and more than anything that's what keeps me coming back to it. I guess it's the former dancer in me. Watching the show makes me want to go take classes and get my body moving again. I don't yet have a favorite dancer, but I find myself leaning toward Kourtni. I love her tattoo, and she's twice danced to Ani's music, and she's probably an underdog in the competition. But it's just week three of the show, so we'll see what happens!

Lastly, this looks pretty amazing. It's an online musical (?) from Joss Whedon, called Doctor Horrible's Sing-Along Blog. I don't know much about it, but Neil Patrick Harris = I'm sold.
