11:53 PM: Hey, what happened to Mighty Big TV? Try to go there, you end up at http://18.104.22.168/suspend.html?. First the whole Angel section looks like it had lost the last week's worth of things - I mean, maybe you didn't like that last episode, but not even a topic about it? Then I get email from them saying that their hosts have "accidentally" trashed a bunch of mailing list subscriptions. Now the whole site is off the air. I suspect foul play.
Saul got be a copy of Being John Malkovich on DVD for my birthday, neat! But. Sigh. It is of course inevitable that I am now having some kind of SCSI errors from the DVD drive on the brrrrrrrand new computer. Also rattling and general
badness. <--high tech "lingo"Crap.
In addition, I was the truly, truly grateful recipient of the cast CD from Annie, Get Your Gun starring Bernadette Peters. No, truly. I mean, everybody knows I just love musical theater.
Weekend Media Report: Went to see Titus, Julie Taymor's adaptation of Titus Andronicus, one of Shakespeare's more heartwarming, family-oriented dramas. You certainly could tell it was directed and adapted by someone used to producing for the stage. Sometimes stage things just don't work on film. Like, hello, dawn implies sunrise, we get that. We don't need to sit there and watch it. I really like the part where Jessica Lange is dressed up as Barugon. Or is it Gaos? I'm not quite sure. Now, if she had fought Godzilla instead of Anthony Hopkins, that would have been cool. Or Godzilla and Anthony Hopkins! Anthony Hopkins IS Godzilla - as you've never seen him before!
Today I had some more anti-informational conversations about DSL service. I am beginning to think that really stands for Damned Souls Linger or something. Also I got all my contracting work done this weekend, so a gold star for me.
Willfully blind self-indulgent nebbish or amusingly quirky old coot? And how bout that local sports team? Discuss among yourselves.
All names are fake, most places are real, the author is definitely unreliable but it's all in good fun. Yep.
