It's time to play the music. It's time to light the lights. It's time to meet the Muppets on the Oscars Show tonight!

There's a Facebook page that's been pushing to get the Muppets to host the Oscars in 2012, and I must say that I can't get enough of the idea.

Imagine it... Kermit is your primary MC for the night with Scooter as producer. Fozzie does some bad stand up to kick off the night. Gonzo does crazy stunts to make the ceremonies more exciting (and to impress his chicken, Camilla). Miss Piggy will expect a Best Actress Oscar ("For moi?"), but Kermit has to break it to her that she's not nominated (I assume some karate-chopping follows). Instead of the stuffy orchestra, you get Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem as the house band for the night.  Sam the Eagle can be there to make sure it's a wholesome, All-American show. Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and Beaker can present the technical awards. Crazy Harry can present a montage of all the stuff that blew up in movies this year. The Swedish Chef can cater the entire event. And Statler and Waldorf would comment on all of it from the balcony.

Honestly, I could watch that every single year.

Click here to vote in the Hasbro fans' choice poll to determine which Star Wars character will be the next action figure.

Admittedly, a lot of the characters are from the extended universe or are third-rate side characters that you probably didn't even notice the first time you watched any of the movies. But still, pretty cool that you can vote.

BTW - I voted for Emperor Palpatine in his throne from Return of the Jedi, just so you can use the line, "Now witness the firepower of this fully ARMED and OPERATIONAL battle station!"

I can't tell you how many times I've been at a social event and said to myself, "if only I had a giant purse filled with wine!"

Well, now that can be a reality with the (terribly named) Baggy Winecoat. Essentially you buy a box of wine, remove the bag of wine from said box and hide it in this purse that has its own little tapper on it.

Start your Christmas shopping off early and get one for yourself here. Then do the rest of your Christmas shopping with a zinfandel buzz on.

Halloween isn't just about girls wearing slutty costumes. Well, it's mostly about that. But it's also a time for eating way too much candy and letting your inner geek come through.

Enter: The Death Star Pumpkin! Pretty cool. I'm not sure I'll be attempting one of these myself this year, but you can check out full instructions on how to make your own Death Star Pumpkin here.

And be sure to give an extra Snickers to any kid who shouts "It's a trap!" when he sees the Death Star on your porch while trick-or-treating.
