24: season 6, hour 5

Tuesday, January 23rd, 2007

Same as the others–if you’re avoiding 24, this isn’t the place to be.

The Figurehead (post 2)

Same song, entirely different era. Robert here is probably younger than we are now, and so so sad. Simply so charming, it breaks your heart. Also, I want to know how exactly I missed this web comic.

24: season 6, hours 3 and 4

Tuesday, January 16th, 2007

Again, if you ever plan on watching 24 and not knowing what happens, go away.

The Figurehead

Ah, an old friend. So achingly beautiful, for what it is, and where it fits in my life with the Cure. Robert Smith says it is about a figurine from a set they used for a video shoot. It is also about what I remember it for–a time, a place, certain people, absolutes of experience. […]

New season (of 24). [duh, SPOILER]

Sunday, January 14th, 2007

I haven’t watched a 24 season premiere by myself, like, ever. So this year there was nobody around to freak out with during commercials. So, internets, I shall freak out with you instead! Obviously, if you dont’ want to know what happens, then you probably shouldn’t read this.

Now that I am on vacation, I’m going to try to finish a few musty blog posts that I’ve been meaning to get to. The first is my commentary on a Salon article savaging Annie Liebowitz for publishing a very personal memoir of photos from her personal collection. Karnasiewicz’s comments are a brilliant example of […]

Snow! And Muppets!

Tuesday, November 21st, 2006

Two quick yet exciting notes about today. One: It is only November and yet tonight I heard the weather forecast mention the blessed word, “snow.” Sure, they were just baiting to get me to stick around during the commercials, but still. There is snow in the mountains and it’s possible that a flake or two […]

Return of the Spooks

Sunday, September 17th, 2006

I love the British. This is a conversation between Harry Pearce, the head of MI-5, and the slimy MI-6 agent / Intelligence Committee chair Oliver Mace (on the BBC show Spooks, retitled MI-5 for US TV): Mace: If you’re asking me, “Is there, at present, anything we shouldn’t do to achieve our ends?” then frankly, […]

One house

Sunday, July 30th, 2006

Today was the last day over at the old place. It was pretty much emptied of my things yesterday, with but a box of cleaning supplies and a couple of shelves and brackets and breakables that were held back remaining. All but the main room were empty, vaccumed or scrubbed clean. We put the last […]

Weekend critter blogging

Monday, March 27th, 2006

It’s been a lazy few weeks, at least on the homefront. This is due in large part to the fluffy invader from the north, TiVo. No, not the delightful DVR technology. TiVo is also the name of K’s dad R’s calico kitten, about 7 months old (and counting). We have been cat-sitting, and it has […]
