For the not-very-religious/non-Christians, Easter is a day for a nice dinner, time spent with family, and of course, all the candy you can shove in your face. One Easter favorite are those fluffy little marshmallow Peeps.
The Seattle Times ran a reader submission contest for scenes made out of Peeps. Among them, No Country for Old Peeps, the WGA strike staged in Peeps, and my personal favorite, Mrs. Lovett’s Peeps Pies (at left). There’s even a little Peep Sweeney Todd in the upstairs window.
In case you can’t get out to the theater to see the new romantic comedies Definitely, Maybe and 27 Dresses, you can get any of the movies below on DVD to watch with your sweetheart, or all alone with a bottle of wine and a box of Godiva.
Just Friends – Ryan Reynolds in a romantic comedy focusing more on the comedy than the romance.
Fever Pitch – Drew Barrymore again, this time with Jimmy Fallon in a love story about a boy and his baseball team, and the girl that gets in the way.
Mr. & Mrs. Smith – Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt in the action movie that launched their own relationship – the chemistry between the two is clear, and the action is awesome.
If you’re really on a Drew Barrymore kick, you can also watch 50 First Dates and The Wedding Singer, both romantic comedies starring Barrymore and Adam Sandler. You could also watch Ever After, Barrymore’s take on Cinderella, or go old school and watch E.T. and enjoy the love between a girl and her alien friend.

For those of you that are sick of the traffic, fed up with holiday shoppers, and are prepared to scream if you hear “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” one more time, this list is for you. Rope of Silicon has a list of the Top Ten Deranged Christmas Flicks, which includes The Nightmare Before Christmas, Bad Santa, and Gremlins (which I wholeheartedly agree with – I still don’t like listening to “Do You Hear What I Hear”).
The number one is surprising, but appropriate. Check out the full list on Rope of Silicon.
TBS starts its 24 hours of A Christmas Story tonight at 8pm. As if you could ever get tired of seeing the kid stick his tongue to the pole, Ralphie in the bunny outfit, or Randy oinking like a piggie at dinner.
