I haven't decided how I feel about this:

New Star Trek Coming January 2017

I do know exactly how I feel about being expected to pay for it up front (instead of at the super market/car dealership/clothing-shoe store as in the good old days.)

How about you?

It was 20C here again today.  They are now promising bad weather.  Did I say I wanted the nice weather to stop?  I did not.

Today's Prompt:
What is the most important lesson you learned as a child, and who taught it to you?

My dad always said, "If you don't want someone to read it, don't put it in writing."  It was always sound advice, but since the advent of the internet, it seems both obvious, and damned near prescient.  Every time I see some idiot raging because his/her on-line privacy has been violated (violated, I say, VIOLATED!) and now all the naked pictures/incriminating data he/she uploaded to the cloud are in the hands of the public, I remember his wise words.

Is "don't upload naked pictures of yourself/loved ones to the internet" too obvious??

Humans.  Feh.

An adult Doctor!  A real true grown-up!

And a terrific actor into the deal.  :D

Now if they could just lose the perky little companions for a while...

Why is no one saying how great she is in Much Ado About Nothing??  "Nathan Filion blah blah Clark Gregg blah blah Reed Diamond blah blah ** -" and yeah, they're all good, but she has to carry the damned thing, and she kills it.

Also, Joss Whedon has a really nice house.

** Full disclosure - I could happily -- very happily --  spend two hours watching Alexis Denisoff watch paint dry, so suffice it to say, I think he's  fine fine fine in this..

Well damn.

I really like Matt Smith as The Doctor.

  "I think that all writing is useful for honing writing skills. I
   think you get better as a writer by writing, and whether that means that
   you’re writing a singularly deep and moving novel about the pain or
   pleasure of modern existence or you’re writing Smeagol-Gollum slash
   you’re still putting one damn word after another and learning as a

   (I just made that up. I imagine it would go something like: “Oh, the
   preciouss, we takes it our handssses and we rubs it and touchess it,
   gollum….no, Smeagol musst not touch the preciousss, the master said
  only he can touch the precioussss…. bad masster, he doess not know the

This week's Torchwood sucked.

And Doris Egan wrote it.

Let's pretend it's a coincidence, shall we?

Dear Glee:

For reasons too numerous to list, we are done. I'll leave your CDs and the ratty old t-shirt you insisted on keeping in a box, to the left, and you should pick them up at your convenience, but before garbage day. We'll always have those first six eps. Lose my number.
