a lengthy entry full of contents of interest to nobody

My brother and i started watching Monty Python’s Flying Circus. Clearly i have been spoiled by the Monty Python and the Holy Grail movie, which is consistently very funny. The series thus far (episodes 4-6 of Season 1, episodes 23-24 of Season 2) has been unimpressive.

However, Gavin Millarrrrrrrrrr’s commentary on Shunt's Utopia (the murder play with the train schedules from 2.24 -- scroll here or view in plain text here) was surrealist in a way that reminded me of the Questions game from Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Dead (not that i am claiming it to be even near as brilliant) and made me want to memorize it just to be able to reel it off at random moments.

Of interest to at least a couple people i know is the following from Joss Whedon over on Browncoats:
Here's an odd little story:

Summer did read for Kitty in X3. I know because she called me and mentioned she was going to and did I know anything about the character (there were no 'sides' to study -- they had to get them when they came in). So the girl I turned into sort of a superhero in my movie was going to read for the character that most influenced ALL my girl-heroes, Kitty Pryde. Karmically funky. Anyhoo, she called me after and said it was very emotional and kind of like when she read for FIREFLY, she just got into a very intense groove. She started telling me about the scene she read and that's when I realized WHY it was kind of like she read for FIREFLY. 'Cause (as you may know) it was a scene I wrote for Astonishing X-Men issue #5. I assume they just didn't have sides ready and used that but this was like a karmic moebius strip, it was just too folded in on itself. In this time of odd, I turned to beer. (No I didn't. Stay in school.)

I don't know what the X-peeps are looking for -- or even if that other girl has really dropped out -- but for my money, Summer would make a wonderful Kitty. (And I don't say that lightly.) As long as it doesn't interfere with SERENITY II: RICARDO MONTALBAN'S STILL PISSED -- or, much more importantly, SERENITY III: SO VERY NUDE.

I have job interviews in the offing. This pleases me. I have an eye exam appointment next Wednesday. I should probably schedule a physical while i still have health insurance, huh?

I met Emma at the Museum of Science today for an all-too-brief visit. We had lunch at Halftime Pizza right across from the North Station commuter rail station, and i was actually pleased with the food.

(Note to MBTA users: The Lechmere Green Line currently stops at North Station. Thus to access the Museum of Science you can get off at Government Center and transfer to a bus, or you can get off at North Station and walk.)

There’s a new sign on the FormerlyFleetCenter. From tdbanknorthgarden.com, says “Go ahead, call it the Garden again.” This made me happy.

Doing research for a fic (i swear) i learned that Collapse )

Poll #524047 Sorting Hat

Which Hogwarts House would i be in?


I’m amused that i’m more interested in rereading the first 5 HP books to read fic rather than in anticipation of Book6.
