Star Treking across the J.J.-verse

I saw Star Trek over the weekend. I thought it was a fun, refreshing “reboot” of the Trek franchise. I could get into what I liked and disliked about the movie and its plot, but I’m not a movie review blog, I’d be hard pressed to talk about that without spoilers, and there are plenty … Continue reading Star Treking across the J.J.-verse

In which I briefly emerge as an extreme LOST nerd

It is no secret that I am a fan of Lost. In fact, I have a whole blog category devoted to the show. Most of my Lost fan-ness is passively listening to podcasts, including The Lost Podcast with Jay and Jack, The Transmission, and I was recently (re-)introduced to Delta Park Gets Lost. I don’t … Continue reading In which I briefly emerge as an extreme LOST nerd

Mow Town

This morning, I saw a gardening truck for a company named “Mow Town.” It was in all the right fonts, styles, and colors to be of the motown record genre. It was so outlandish and surreal that I thought I might have been temporarily passing through an episode of Pushing Daisies. And speaking of Pushing … Continue reading Mow Town

Photos, Themes, & Cool Cats

Based on feedback, both online and off, I think I am going to go with a Flickr Pro account for my photo hosting. The Aperture integration is beautiful and the functionality is great. I’ll miss being able to pull up stats and the ability to mess with people who hot-link pictures from MySpace. I’m waiting … Continue reading Photos, Themes, & Cool Cats

My LOST Predictions

These are my predictions for the season finale Lost. They don’t come from spoilers or secret information, they’re just guesses and intuition and are probably wrong. * The episode will end with Jin in some kind of perilous situation to save Sun. Sun and the other Oceanic 6 will believe him to be dead. Even … Continue reading My LOST Predictions

Terminator annoyance

So I have been watching Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and something has been bugging me. If you can only bring flesh (or technology wrapped in flesh) and not straight-up technology through a time portal, then how did that bare terminator head get flung out of the bank vault and into the current-day storyline??? Posted … Continue reading Terminator annoyance

Moving pictures with synchronized sound

A few TV/Movie thoughts while I’m waiting on replacement clutch cylinders… To use a quote/show-title from coffejedi, I was pleasantly surprised by the “River Tam Beats Up Everyone” show (also known as “Terminator: The Sarah Conner Chronicles.” I was expecting it to be a crappy SciFi show melded with a crappy action show, but really … Continue reading Moving pictures with synchronized sound

Doctor Who’s Christmas Special

The new Doctor Who Christmas Special hit the Bittorrents the other day and I finally got around to watching it last night. A few impressions I got while watching: * I really need to re-read (or re-listen to the audiobook of) the Douglas Adams/Terry Jones novel Starship Titanic * The self-referrential deserted London because of … Continue reading Doctor Who’s Christmas Special
