1.) Every time I see the commercial for this week's Joan
, I think,( Itty-bitty S2 Dead Zone spoiler )
2.) Netflix has the new, really good Little House on the Prairie
miniseries on their "sometime in the future, but don't start holding your breath just yet" list. I've been hunting, but so far I haven't found any release info. Even so, I'm going to take that as a good omen. Come to me, shiny DVDs!
3.) It's utterly impossible for me to imagine living in a world where I haven't always known the spoilery twist endings to movies like Citizen Kane
, Planet of the Apes
, or Soylent Green
. I've tried, I really have. But they were already punch lines when I was born, and I can't imagine what it would be like to have seen them without that baggage. Which isn't a bad thing, really, just a... thing.
4.) Those Darth M&Ms are evilly addictive. I definitely need to stock up before they vanish. They're pretty, too. *g* In other Star Wars
blather, FSM has something rather interesting today: Doug Adams (of the forthcoming book on the LotR
scores) and the Kaplans sharing their first listening responses
to the Revenge of the Sith
score. OooOOOooh. Spoilery, of course. ( Cutting a couple of quotes that really aren't spoilery, but people seem to get more het up about SW spoilers than any others in the universe, so... )
5.) Something about the ads for Hitchhiker's Guide
reminds me really strongly of 5th Element
. I don't know how I feel about that.
6.) So I've been following Spielberg's next gigundo television project, Into the West
, for a while now, thanks to a great (if slightly odd) cast and a subject that interests me. Well, happily it has a website
now, which makes things much easier. The gallery's small but growing, and some of the images there already are quite nice. Plus, there are a couple of pictures of Skeet up, looking rather furry. In a frontier sort of way. Heh. Anyway! I've been bopping around the cast/crew section, figuring out who's related to whom, and it's a trip and a half. ( Um, slight character relationship spoilers? I swear, I'm so paranoid about someone freaking on me these days. )
7.) Who knew Michael Palin was so popular?
