If The Sopranos was syndicated on network TV, it would look something like this:

So I started watching Boston Legal in order to feed my recently rekindled love of James Spader and I'm liking it so far, although not as much as I might have if I hadn't started watching the Sopranos around the same time. I'm crossing my fingers that they come up with a new credit sequence for Boston Legal by the second season because, seriously, the one from the first season sucks beyond sucking. The music is completely wrong -- and not in an ironic way -- and the morphing of actors into cartoon-likenesses looks cheap and very silly.

I only started watching the Soprano's because of all the talk about the finale. I'm spoiled in the odd way that I know what happens in the last four minutes only. Read more...Collapse )

one of many good points made in the last 24 hours [May. 31st, 2007|02:54 am]

From the c/net article on the "lj revolt"

For its part, LiveJournal's abuse staff has defended pulling the plug on the communities by saying: "Material which can be interpreted as expressing interest in, soliciting or encouraging illegal activity places LiveJournal at considerable legal risk." That led one user, "femmequixotic," to reply: "I list 'gay marriage' among my interests--that is illegal in my state. With this wording my journal could be deleted, without warning, for the fact that I support equal rights of marriage for all."


ps -- I've avoided clicking on any links to W's of I. If you already have, you might want to scan your hard drive for spyware. This may be hysteria or me giving in to an urban legend of sorts, whatev.

To the ever amazing, super-talented janedavitt

You've made me purr, you've made me cry.  You've written some of the most amazing fics that I've ever read -- and I'm forever grateful for the fabulousness that is Secretary.

Happy Birthday!

the afterlife of My Favorite [Mar. 30th, 2007|04:21 pm]
Astrid
[music |The Secret History, "Our Lady of Pompeii"]

Last winter, one of my favorite bands, appropriately titled My Favorite, went kaput.  If you've never been introduced, check out this video:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pp53RoudMbU

When I was a kid, I spent a lot of time hugging my knees on a hill behind my house, overlooking the sprawling miles of farmland.  I'd wear out Smiths tapes in my walkman, because I loved to listen to "Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now" over the sound of crickets.  My hero was Joan of Arc, the original punk rock girl from a small town who got burned on her way to the big city.  I guess I was a My Favorite fan waiting to happen.

The band, minus Andrea Vaughn, has just reformed with a new female vocalist under the name The Secret History.  I listened to live videos of two of their songs --- but couldn't really make it through either of them.  It isn't fair to compare these to the polished recordings I've been listening to for years.  Just takes some getting used to, I guess.   Joan and I are kind of chums. We'll take walks together, or browse through Benetton. She's very concerned about the state of music...actually the way things are going, she's pretty much my steady on a Friday night.
