Please tell me you caught Friday's Batman Brave & the Bold
so [ profile] charliesmum did a Shag, Marry, Cliff meme and I said, "sure, why not!"

Then she threw me a curve. )

So comment if you want to be tagged for some inexplicable reason.

The first person I heard was Paul Rudd, usually phrased as "that guy from Clueless".

My wife says I look like Harrison Ford but she's biased.

A recent addition was Jeroen Krabbe

Pretty much you can go with any dark haired actor with a substantial chin and you'll probably see a resemblance.
yet another 20 questions meme )
If you ignore the plot, it's pretty entertaining.

Though it was interesting to see Marc Warren (a.k.a. Elton from Doctor Who: Love & Monsters as a tough guy in it.

There are a lot of shows that I've fallen in love with, only to see them fall by the wayside. Journeyman on NBC last year was quite good. The sequel to Babylon 5, Crusade was finally finding its way towards the end of its all to brief run. But since I have to pick one, I'll choose Brimstone starring Peter Horton as a dead cop sent back to the Earth to hunt down souls escaped from Hell. In particular, it was John Glover's performance as the devil, and the interplay between the two of them, that made the show.
So Matthew's a fan of Word World a cute little show with a catchy theme song about a world where everything is made up of the letters that comprise it. i.e. a dog will have the letters D, O, and G make up its body.

Throughout the episode they'll take the time to address some point of language and inevitably, "Build a word." Well on Sunday my wife and I got to thinking about just how incredibly dangerous and powerful this could be. My wife wonders if there's some sort of Darwinian instinct that keeps them from building plague or black hole. Meanwhile, I noted that they had an episode demonstrating that adding an S to a word makes it plural. Can you imagine the arms race in Word World if war ever broke out?

Your result for The Doctor Who Companion Test...

The Brigadier

You are The Brigadier. Strong, Intelligent and generally friendly, you are a loyal ally to have around. No matter how many incarnations the Doctor goes through, there you are, showing up in the nick of time! You have years of experience, a solid brain on your shoulder, and a positive outlook. When trouble comes...

...You march right into it. Which is really your biggest achilles heel. Your penchant to approach every problem from the completely bureaucratic angle leads you to get stuck in unfortunate circumstances all the time, leaving The Doctor to come and clean up your mess. Oh, well - some people never learn.

Can you tell it's a slow morning at work? I responded to [ profile] morgeil on this one and never gave my response. Here it is

Comment on this post. I will choose seven interests from your profile and you will explain what they mean and why you are interested in them. Post this along with your answers in your own journal so others can play along.

[ profile] morgeil asked about the following:

anime - Shockingly, this actually predates [ profile] darkwingjhu. My first memories of anime, though I didn't have that term or even japanimation in my head at the time, were waking up early on mornings in the late 70s to catch Star Blazers. From there I moved on to Tranzor Z, Voltron, and Robotech. The first time I caught something really thinking the term anime was probably Fist of the North Star in High School. Nowadays my wife, who was hooked by [ profile] darkwingjhu, and I watch a lot of serials. Currently we're watching Black Cat and The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya

blues music - A small part of this came from my parents, but, perhaps like all children of my generation, my primary interest in blues music came from The Blues Brothers. It introduced me to many famous artists from blues' history and my collection has extended both backwards and forwards as I love just sitting there and listening.

roleplaying games - Let's see, I played my first RPG of Dungeons & Dragons when I was.. oh.. eight or nine maybe. I created a halfling (it's a class dammit!) named Hasscotch. But to be honest, I didn't really get into RPGing until I came to college and joined HopSFA.

gilmore girls - Despite their incorrect spelling, they do share my last name and I love witty banter. This series contains one of my favorite lines ever, which I'll paraphrase, "It was just like the first twenty-five minutes of Saving Private Ryan, except they got to go to France!"

freedom of speech - I picked this one up during one of the LJ censorship flaps. But if you're going to ask me which one, I can't recall. Obviously though, I support freedom of (truthful) speech.

tilly and the wall They're a band I heard about on NPR that doesn't have a percussionist. Well aside from the tap dancer. Lots of fun

kungfu - Aside from the films that my wife and I enjoy, during the early 2000s my wife and I joined a wushu school here called Jow Ga Kung Fu. The sifu is a former marine/now county police officer and a great guy who concentrates more on teaching than on selling tests or belts for advancement. It was a great way to keep fit before we had Matthew.
which if you're reading this LJ entry is almost impossible.

Yes, I've seen Act I of Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog

You should too.

Yes, I'll be buying it when it gets released on DVD

I didn't see it myself, I was too put-off by the car.

But Knight Rider is being commissioned for a series
Including on a friend's LJ. But still.. it must be distributed

Well just one really, but it's a good one. Little did I realize that this guy

A.K.A. Patrick from Coupling is also this guy

A.K.A. Dascomb from V for Vendetta

Man isn't the internet fun? I can't wait till they have the internet in Xandrapolis

So we kinda ended up watching tonight's first Torchwood episode (the repeat) on accident. It was pretty good which means three good episodes in a row to start the new season.


I'm going to buy Torchwood Season 2 on DVD and then my completeness tendency will make me buy Season 1.

But that's what happens when it snows/sleets/freezing rains/rains in the area. Pretty much the worst was from the 395 on ramp to the beltway. Once I got outside of that it wasn't too bad. But there were definitely some nervous spots.

Home for a snow day! )

Anyways, don't forget to visit Xandrapolis today. Hopefully you won't see the kind of crime you find in the Rogue Isles.
