fandom:

Hey, look.

ficathon for those ficathon requests that never got filled  I'm debating about participating, but i don't really wanna write any more ficathon pieces and don't have a deep desire for my 3 unfilled requests to be written.  Anyone potentially willing to offer up their services should definitely check it out, though.

Eternal Sunshine... icons quite different from the ones i usually see for that movie
I approve muchly.

Jonah and i watched "Shindig" tonight.  The importance of the slave dispute in the opening hadn't hit me until i saw it this time.

I mentioned to Meredith last night that i had loaned out disc 2 of my Firefly and she said she thought that was her favorite disc.  I was inclined to agree.  Looking again, i wasn't so sure, because Disc 3 is the dark one, and i tend to prefer that to humor, but no, i stand by Meredith.

Disc 1:
-Serenity
-The Train Job
-Bushwhacked

Disc 2:
-Shindig
-Safe
-Our Mrs. Reynolds
-Jaynestown

Disc 3:
-Out of Gas
-Ariel
-War Stories
-Trash

Disc 4:
-The Message
-Heart of Gold
-Objects in Space

Edit for further discussion:
I think OMR is a (far) superior episode to Trash. Shindig and Safe are great. Jaynestown is so much fun... (And it helps that Jayne himself has grown on me.) OOG is amazing. Ariel is a solid and important episode and i heart the ending but it wouldn't top my list of best/favorite episodes. I'm always torn about how much i want to watch WS, and there are things that drive me up a wall plus the obvious pain, but i also have love (though it hasn't held up to repeated viewing, in that the things that bug me grow in the amount which they bug me plus new buggies crop up).
It's a tough call.

politics:

rhipowered posted the following:

"He's good in every way, except he's not a woman."
-Sandra Day O'Connor on John J. Roberts

That made me smile since i recently saw an InstaPundit reader call Roberts "O'Connor with a penis."

a Londoner on the most recent bombings (via metaquotes)

D.S. Savage's response to a 1942 Orwell article gives me chills.
Whereas the rest of the nation is content with calling down obloquy on Hitler's head, we [pacifists] regard this as superficial. Hitler requires, not condemnation, but understanding. This does not mean that we like, or defend him. Personally I do not care for Hitler. He is, however, "realler" than Chamberlain, Churchill, Cripps, etc, in that he is the vehicle of raw historical forces, whereas they are stuffed dummies, waxwork figures, living in unreality. We do not desire a German "victory"; we would not lift a finger to help either Britain or Germany to "win"; but there would be a profound justice, I feel, however terrible, in a German victory...
From here.
