One down, one to go

Tuesday, September 30th, 2008

I finished one! The short one, but still, one! some kind of strange, by me “Hi everyone,” the second Clark said cheerfully. “Don’t worry, we’re from the future. Everything’s fine, we’re just here to help with the explanations.” Follows forward progress, but there’s no reading prerequisite.

Sci-Fi Friday: SGA 5.10, “First Contact”

Friday, September 26th, 2008

Minutes 0-3 Daniel Jackson is very cheery. Rodney is very cranky. Nothing has happened so far. (first commercial break) Minutes 4-14 DJ has allergies. And is looking for a secret lab. Rodney and DJ make veiled allusions to Rodney doing secret research no one knows about. John admits to having a relationship with Todd; Woolsey […]

By the numbers

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2008

Number of days I’ve gone to work in a row: 9 Days left until I have a full day off: 4 Days left until the end of September: 7 Stories I want to finish before then, so I’ll have October free to ponder NanoWrimo, and reread my old nano novels so I won’t accidentally change […]

More on Robin Hood…

Sunday, September 21st, 2008

As with all fun tv shows, I was left with some burning questions after watching the first three episodes: 1. Whatever happened to Luke Scarlett? I’m sure he got rescued from the gallows, and then he was just gone — never showed up in the outlaw camp or anything. 2. Where is Robin getting all […]

Sci-Fi Friday: SGA (“Tracker” 5.9 )

Saturday, September 20th, 2008

(aka: This must have been vacation week for the other half of the cast. Is everyone planning on showing up for the finale, at least?) I’m having trouble working up the enthusiasm to say *anything* about this episode. It was only an hour long, and we can all be thankful for that, I guess. Here’s […]

Okay, it’s later

Robin Hood (not the movie, or that other movie, or actually any of the movies, or any of the tv shows except for the 2006 BBC America version) What’s not to love about this show? It’s all about pretty men running around a forest. There is a woman (one), but all of her her clothes […]

Let’s pretend this was posted Thursday…

Thursday’s entry got distracted watching Robin Hood (the BBC America 2006 series, and why is there not scads of fanfic about this show?). More later.

Dear spambots: phhbllttt!!!

Wednesday, September 17th, 2008

My spam has exploded in the last few days, after being very quiet for about a week. According to hundreds of “commenters,” with their stupid fake spambot-created names, my site has a (direct quote) “Great design!” Apparently, I am expected to be happy enough to be getting positive feedback that I will ignore the ridiculously […]

Movie Review: A Dog’s Breakfast

Tuesday, September 16th, 2008

That is one weird movie. The special features are awesome, because David Hewlett is v.funny (go squirrels!), and I love how they totally acknowledge the awesome power that is fans (esp. sci fi fans — shout-out to the people making the fan eps of Star Trek!). The movie itself? Weird. Kind of scary, actually — […]

Emoting to the max

Monday, September 15th, 2008

HP is my escapism fandom. So when I’m feeling like this: I read stuff like this: The Task at Hand, by Dementor Delta “I know it must be bad from an ‘I’ve got that idiot Potter panting after me’ standpoint, but from here it’s loads better than the Contrary.” When I feel more like this: […]
