Choose Wisely

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted an overly mindless or fluffy post so I figured I’d come up with one for this cold and snowy March evening. Rather than dredge the internet looking for something fitting, I’m just going to go ahead and post a link to my newest poll.  Enjoy

Yes, I Know…

I”m well aware that I didn’t do a music post on Sunday. Sheesh! I was busy and I didn’t have anything to say. I do three posts and all of a sudden I have people expecting me to do it every damn Sunday. It’s a lark folks. I do it when I feel like it so there’s no need to email me about it. I’m well aware that I didn’t do one.

As W.C. Fields said “Go away kid, ya bother me.”

A Little Less Mystery In The World

Apparently German researchers have finally confirmed the identity of the Mona Lisa as Lisa Gherardini del Giocondo, the wife of the wealthy Florentine silk merchant Francesco del Giocondo. While this had been speculated on prior to this, there was little or no evidence to corroborate the statement.

I really don’t know how I feel about this. I’m all for academic achievement and discovery and the news doesn’t lessen the immense impact the painting has had but there’s a fairly large part of me that is saddened by this news. It’s one less mystery in the world. One less speculative dream that inspires conversation and thought. Now all that is left is one more hardened fact, one more pillar of Science strengthened.

*sigh* I guess I’m just a dreamer and romantic at heart and always will be.

Joss Whedon Is Still My Master

As a friend of a friend so aptly noticed, Serenity has been named the top Sci-Fi movie.

There was much rejoicing.

That is all. I now return you to your regularly scheduled dull and boring lives.

File Under: Easily Amused

I’m easily amused. We all know this. It isn’t any secret so none of you can act surprised that I found this amusing:

A Sci-Fi Resurrection Poll

I’m in a mindless mood, so all you’re getting is a mindless post and then I’m going back to doodling on my map some more — which I’ve redone yet again since my last post. No there aren’t any pictures yet and yes, I am twelve thankyouverymuch, now fuck off1.

Err, where was I?

Oh yes, the poll. It’s not mine but I agree with the end result wholeheartedly. Farscape was a very close second and I’d have the original Stargate as a write in 3rd place vote just cause it’s that damn cool but only if Richard Dean Anderson came back full time.

1 See Amanda, I even type it now and again.

One Step Closer To A Dance…

Looks like good ol’ Mr. Martin actually heard and listened to my previous belligerent rantings about A Dance With Dragons and decided that ten and a half months between teasers is much too long of a time for the average fan to wait. He went ahead and posted a new teaser chapter as a milksop for us while he continues to muddle through with finishing the book. This is the first chapter with Jon in it (Cheer!) and will be alternately rotated with the existing Danaerys and Tyrion chapters that he’d already posted. I apparently have had crap luck because I had no idea that he’d even posted a Tyrion chapter. Every time I’ve checked the sample pages it’s always been the Danaerys chapter. Who knew...
