Episode: Awesome

This blog is not going to be about reposting amazing videos, even though I've been doing that a lot lately. As soon as I do something interesting, I'll letcha know.
In the meantime...

Weezer has no human friends, apparently

Do not watch this music video if you are on any illegal substances.

No, wait, scratch that. ONLY watch this music video if you are on illegal substances.

It hasn't been the easiest month for me, what with burning my abdomen with boiling water and some other things, but there are reasons to smile.

Yay, health care reform! I never thought I'd see you! You're not exactly how I imagined, but I welcome you with open, surprised, insured arms anyway.

This NY Times article about David Simon and the upcoming HBO show Treme. Makes me wish I had HBO (as does The Pacific).

So good!

And they include Firefly!

Breaking Bad blog

My friend Kate is a WA over at the ever-stellar Breaking Bad and is doing a blog for AMC as Marie Schrader, the sister-in-law on the show. Enjoy!

Finished reading The City and The City. I feel about it the way Ashton Kutcher felt about Twitter before it became all mainstream and passe. Reading Lion's Honey now, which is less a reinterpretation than a laparoscopic look at the subtext of the story of Samson (the Old Testament being what it is).

I have a lot to do. Gah.

amusing dream

I had the weirdest dream last night that my stepdad was Vanna White's nanny on the set of Wheel of Fortune (and my stepdad's a little more Clint Eastwood, a little less Fran Drescher). At one point one of the kids slipped onto the stage and my stepdad had to run out and take the kid from Vanna. The camera closed in on him, he put the kid down, and looked into the camera... and started to speak Hawaiian (or some other Polynesian language). My stepdad's Polish/Russian, and I'm pretty sure this wasn't one of the episodes they do on the road, so that was particularly weird.

Also, and I say this with all due respect, suck it, James Cameron!

My mom's coming to visit me! Probably late April, but I can't wait! She hasn't visited me since I've been out here, so it's super-exciting.

I'm reading The City and the City. I love the idea of it and the execution so far, but we'll see how it pans out.

Outlining a spec sitcom pilot. I'm definitely feeling it.

And of course more news to come...

in the good

I'm so happy my heart feels like it was tickled by the Easter Rabbit's whiskers and then hugged by Mrs. Claus.

I'll leak details as they trickle on through.
In summing up, I wish I had some kind of affirmative message to leave you with. I don't. Would you take two negative messages?
