There ought to be a law.

As I noted already, I watched no TV last night. The only opinion I’ve got about Hidden Palms so far is that I hate people using the HP abbreviation for it. Sorry, that’s taken by a huge fandom, deal with having to spell the whole thing out or find another way to shorten it. I [...]

Like black holes in the sky.

Boo! I suck. I fell in the Internet Black Hole today. I got to reading one thing and then followed one link after another until I had completely exhausted the trail. You know what I’m talking about? Yeah. Plus, I spent the morning at the dentist having my gums burned off (FUN!!) and my crown [...]

Am I the only one?

Because this is the type of day I’m having. Am I the only one who… Doesn’t care about Rosie and how she chose to leave The View? I tend to agree with a lot of Rosie’s views on things but there’s no doubt she lacks the grace to know how to get her point of [...]

I’ve got a spirit finger for ya.

There are days when I just don’t know how to start a post. Those are usually the days when I start out talking about things not at all related to the bulk of the post. Today I debated between asking anyone out there for a stamp or talking about my dental woes. This option wasn’t [...]

Operation Stupid is officially over!

I hope those in the US are enjoying their Memorial Day weekend. I certainly am… by doing absolutely nothing at all. Mo and I saw Pirates of the Caribbean on Friday and Disturbia yesterday with the latter surprisingly being the better of the two. I don’t know if I had too high expectations for POTC [...]

TGIF List

It’s the Friday before a three day weekend which means my office is pretty much empty and I’m bored out of my mind. I’d love to take off early and go to a matinee showing of Pirates of the Caribbean. I won’t, of course, but I’m *really* tempted. Anyway, it’s a lazy day which means [...]

Did Heroes get Lost?

Oh boy, is that subject line lame or what?! I’m sorry but I’m all TV-ed out and can’t remember any of the quotes I could use. Who knew I’d ever say that?! I’m not really, of course. Tonight I’ll be checking out On the Lot and starting on the last episodes of Studio 60 starting. [...]

Rob Thomas is a whore.

Veronica Mars trumps Heroes. I can’t even begin to think about that finale while I’ve got VM on the brain. Ahh, look, the first indication that I do agree that S3 was a far cry from S1 or S2. This is the first time I haven’t been able to think about anything other than VM [...]

Just lay back and enjoy it.

Well, if you gotta go down, fighting is the way to do it. It’s a bittersweet night. I wanted these episodes to be great. I avoided all knowledge of what was going to happen (the most I knew was vague stuff about filmtx‘s day on set and I got the impression Jason was there at [...]

You know how things are gonna be now, don’t you? You have to know.

I haven’t had time to talk about last night’s Heroes finale which I liked a lot more than most. What else is new, eh? I still don’t have time to talk about it as I want to get this post up first. Where to start? To say that Veronica Mars means a lot to me [...]

How can we possibly compete with the McCrazies?

I’m so excited for the Heroes finale tonight that I can’t think about much else. I’ve been reading people’s goodbyes to VM and enjoying them but I can’t stop and think about it just yet. I need to get through tonight first and then I’ll be able to focus on it alone. In the meantime, [...]

Chapter 23

*FLAILS* “Call me Noah.”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Fucking Nathan FTW. I knew Sylar took that damn cockroach’s ability to survive pretty much anything! How awesome was that chapter opening? I repeat… *FLAILS* PS: Sylar killed Claude didn’t he? (Did we already know this and I wasn’t paying attention? How else did he do the invisible thing?) PPS: So [...]

Fall Preview Madness

I’ve already briefly offered my thoughts on the various schedules. Based on description alone, there aren’t a whole lot of shows I’m dying to see but, since it’s hard to judge from descriptions alone, I decided I owed it to them to check out all the video previews and reassess my opinions. First, kudos to [...]

12 of 12: May 07

After seeing a few people do this last month and thus getting me addicted to Chad’s blog, I decided that I’d join in the fun and do 12 of 12 this month. I was supposed to be up north with friends which would have made for a more exciting day of pictures. Sadly, plans changed [...]

I’m sorry, what was the question?

TV broke me last night. Looking back I think there was at least one time (but more often more than one) that I cried during each of the finales I was watched. Hmm, well probably not The Office but the number of times there were tears in my eyes during Supernatural made up for that. [...]

Where the hell are we going to hide this time?

Moving past the topic of upfronts for a few minutes. First, LA folks can participate in the Annual LA Cancer Challenge this year on October 28, 2007. The challenge benefits the Hirshberg Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research. This is their 10th Anniversary so it looks like it’ll be a fun time. Nothing better than having [...]

Foxy Schedule

And then there’s FOX… who has me on the hook for one show but finally lost my trust this season when it comes to any of their new offerings. They’ve proven one too many times that it’s not worth it to get invested in their shows. I think I’ll wait it out and see if [...]
