Devon Lohan Likes! #2

This week I have a variety of likes, ranging from TV shows, to albums, to even iphone applications. Last week's entry brought on a few comments, maybe we can get a little more this week? Unless you're Theresa. In which case, fuck off as usual.

  1. Dollhouse. - If you haven't checked out the latest FOX series from mastermind Joss Whedon, then you are definitely missing out. I've been a big fan of all of Joss's previous shows, i.e. Buffy, Angel, Firefly, and Wonderfalls. I'm not the biggest fan of Eliza Dushku's acting, but she's definitely no eye sore. Olivia Williams is the villainous boss, and the dude who played Obama on Little Britain USA is constantly kicking ass. It feels a little like Alias, but that's not a bad thing. It has all the great spy vs spy action of Alias, with the campy cheese of the Buffyverse.
  2. "The Seldom Seen Kid" by Elbow - The fourth album from the award winning British alternative rock band. Saw these guys on Glastonbury Live '08, on my HD Palladia channel (which you should check out if you have it in HD) and really liked the sound. According to Wikipedia, the band only has 5 regular members, but when they play they have a mini orchestra, so there's actually like 15 or more people on stage. This album is really good, if you like Brit rock.
  3. Restaurants (iphone app) - this application shows you just about every major fast food restaurant, and their complete menus - but the real catch, and what the app is all about - is the calculator. It tells you exactly how much fat and how many calories are in each of the things you eat. A medium sized Big Mac meal has over 60 grams of fat, and 800 calories. I've been on a diet and trying to eat better, and this app has helped me to actually stay away from all the fast food. When you know just how much of that bad stuff is in it, you don't want to eat it, trust me.
