The WGA strike is showing - our TiFaux (it's a TiVo, but not!) is not set to record much of anything for the next...unforeseen amount of time. I was reading EW's Best TV moments of 2007 and got a bit overly excited over this one
, much like the writer did. In fact, I did a dramatic reading for Ryan, and got applause. ;)"Remember the way she switched her gaze from Rory to Luke and the tone of the song changed completely and how that spoke volumes about her adult life? Remember when her voice kind of frogged a little when she got to the line ''I'm not what you ne-ee-ee-eed''? Remember when she looked like a darted deer at the end before scooting off the stage and how in the audience it looked like Liz Torres the actress and not Miss Patty the character had to clutch at her heart in disbelief? It was that powerful, people!(...)But see, she started off singing it to Rory! She was drunk and was using drunken jazz hands. And then — and then! — Luke walked in, and he was half smiling...and okay, in the light of day, after the wine has worn off, I see that maybe my enthusiasm might seem a little overwrought. But Graham's face was doing that vintage crumbly chin thing and she really can sing and Luke's jaw went all clenchy and she wishes him joy and happiness!"
In a season of not a lot of good, that was good. And as I look at my nearly empty TV recording queue I miss the good old days of the Gilmore Girls, when things were consistently enjoyable and you didn't want to throttle anybody so often. Maybe I need to do a mini-marathon of quality Gilmore Girls episodes, one of these days.
Speaking of that roundup of good TV moments...there were a surprising number of reality crapfests in there. It was disturbing. But, "A Dog Took My Face and Gave Me a Better Face to Change the World: The Celeste Cunningham Story" got a mention, so it's all good. ;)
In other linkage, I stumbled across these BSG propoganda posters
via [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com]
, and Neil Gaiman
blogged about BPAL
. Specifically, he mentioned an as-yet-unreleased SNOW GLASS APPLES oil, which causes a person to smell like "sexy vampire apples", and I love "Snow Glass Apples", okay? Eeep!
Lastly, the Bad Baby Names Blog
, where you will find such gems as:"I REALLY like the name Raegan for a girl. It is VERY important to me that the middle name has Leigh in it somehow. Which sounds best??
1. Raegan Molleigh
2. Raegan Presleigh
3. Raegan Baileigh"
I love the name Praline I am just not sure it sounds good with Cecilia. I need some opinions on whether it sounds good or some other first names that would go good with Cecilia. We also have 2 boys Kiefer and Ezwrin so we need another unique name."
And now I am off to work on a couple of SEKRIT PROJECTS, and then, depending on how generous I am feeling, I will go to the kids' vocal concert at school.
