No, this isn’t exactly earth-shattering news, I get that. But, I’ve somehow* managed to find myself re-watching four–Count ’em. Four!–shows on DVD.
We’ve got two of my all-time favorite sci-fi shows (I’d be willing to say all-time favorite shows, period) Farscape and Babylon 5. Look! Spoilery videos!
Then, we have Veronica Mars…a show that not only has one of the best TV dads ever (it’s true…even Joss Whedon says so), but also introduced me to my future wife:
And, finally, we have the underrated sci-fi/action/comedy The Invisible Man:
*: Actually, I’m pretty sure it’s all Ashley’s fault. Even if it isn’t, I’m just gonna blame her anyway.
Truly the greatest time of the year…
I haven’t posted in a while, and with good reason(s).
First of all, my computer apparently caught the swine flu. I blame all of the spam I get on a daily basis. (Get it? Spam –> Ham –> Pig –> Swine) After spending a good week trying to repair the silly thing–which left me feeling a little bit like this:
–I finally had to break down and shell out the cash for a new machine.
Secondly, I was out of town for a few days on business.
But, now I’m back, have a shiny new laptop, and a bunch of posts just itching to be written.
Today is Edgar Allan Poe’s 200th birthday. Or, would be if he were still alive. Of course, since it’s Poe we’re talking about, maybe he is still alive.
The New York Times has a nifty little slide show to celebrate the occasion. Not to be outdone, I wanted to post a clip of Poe’s The Raven. But, which one? Sure, there’s the awesome Homer Simpson version. Or the Vincent Price/Peter Lorre version. In the end, though, I think I picked the right one:
Rachel introduced me to “The Worst Pirate Song” by Ceann. And, let’s be honest, pirates make any day better, right? Sure. So here we go:
If you like that, there’s a pretty good chance that you’d like some of the other songs by this Irish American band from Pennsylvania–particularly if you like whiskey, mead, PBR, or coal miners’ daughters.
Whether or not you’ll be celebrating the season, I hope everyone has a great December 25th. I’ll probably be eating non-stop for at least the next 48 hours.
Now, for no good reason, I give you Muppets:
I’ll probably be too busy in the next week or so doing Christmasy things, so I wanted to make sure I found time to post a little something.
In honor of the holidays, I give you these clips of Neil Patrick Harris from How I Met Your Mother:
I’ll be back as soon as I can with some end of year “Best of” lists (which I know you all love).
