Man if "Epitaph One" had actually been the last episode of Dollhouse ever madeI would so upset.

Maybe Spoilers (mostly just me flailing) )

In conclusion, I can not wait for the next year of Dollhouse.

Sherriff Lamb is on my soap opera! And he gets to be demented and crazy! Also Adam finally has some facial expressions that aren't just squinting. I didn't even love him that much on VMars but I love when fandoms collide (even though the trip from recurring character -- even if it was on The CW -- to soap opera is a downgrade.)

I still don't care about American Idol but I accept that Adam Lambert is made of glitter and joy.

Lost got awesome sometime after I stopped watching. I'm so glad I started watching again. No spoilers please I am only at the beginning of season 4.

People I know who love Michael Jackson, I'm so sorry. I like to remember him in his eighties heyday even if I wasn't there at the time. I'm going to link to this slightly later performance because it really is that awesome. I've actually just gotten involved in a big MJ is awesome phase lately. I think I'll probably listen to Thriller a few more times in his honor.

Read this!

The best thing I have read all day is this letter from a former slave to his former master. I love all of it, because it is so honest and amazing. There's all these passages that are so badass but in this subtle way that makes them even more badass. I'm really fond of this passage: "have a comfortable home for Mandy (the folks here call her Mrs. Anderson)." It's so matter of fact and simple but so powerful. It's filled with quotes like that. You should go off and read it right now.

I was thinking today that many of the people who are right now protesting are the kids of people who protested in the 1970s. Maybe it took thirty years but it seems as if the message that people have received from that is that you can change the world through protests. It seems that the children of Iran have learned this lesson almost too well for those in charge. These kids grew up hearing about what happened then and now are taking action. This is an astounding moment.

Reading Guests of the Ayatollah is the most I have ever learned about Iran and the hostage crisis. It was an extremely good book and one of the most fascinating reads I've had in a long time. I can't recommend it enough to people who want to gain a few insights into Iranian American relations and history. It is super long though.

I started to read The Stand, which is legitimately a pretty freaky book. But less freaky since most of the action takes place after everyone is dead from the flu. Of course this not being completely freaky only works if there isn't news every night about a possible FLU PANDEMIC! It is timed for my maximum freaked out ness. I am really enjoying the book so far even though I am not far in it. Even if it is extra freaky.

In completely unrelated news, I've been watching the Chloe/Davis scenes on youtube and I am amazed that Smallville has been on for EIGHT years. How is that possible?

I loved Watchmen! Loved it.

I highly recommend it.

It's just a little over twelve hours until George W Bush won't be president anymore! For the first time I can remember the president won't be named Bush or Clinton. (Reagan was still president when I was born but I don't remember that so it doesn't count.)

I'm so excited for tomorrow. I wish I could have gone to DC. I wish I had a Barack Obama icon also.

For the first time since starting I've come out on top of my word goal for [ profile] getyourwordsout. I feel awesome!

I got my Deadwood complete series DVD boxset. It's so very pretty. It's probably one of the nicest DVD sets on my shelf. I can't wait to watch all of it and it's bonus features.

Now I have to try and hit some of my word count. I've been slacking.

This is the second time I've done Yuletide and I got just as lucky this year as last year. It's Speed fic! About Jack and Annie. And it's such a good satisfying bit of ending. It's called Walk The Wire and everyone should read it. Yuletide is the greatest exchange of the whole year.

I reject this cast for the Avatar movie. Jesse McCartney can not be in the movie. Also why are they all white people again? Because that does not look like the world of Avatar I have been watching.

And yes I watch Avatar. My brother hooked me on it. It is really quite entertaining. I was looking forward to the movie but if this who they are going to cast, not so much.

I was so excited to see my Yuletide assignment in my inbox! I can't wait to start writing. Sorry in advance for the flist spamming.

Yuletide Letter )

I have a secret love. It developed over this long election season. I love MSNBC. I love it a lot. They have the best coverage, in spite of/because of the rampant infighting. The infighting might have only lasted the one week (that glorious week when they were in a parking lot in Denver to report on the Democratic National Convention) that we know of but it was still the moment when MSNBC became "must watch" for me.
This is long. Really Really Long. )

Now that I effectively wrote a book about this, I'll stop.

If Rahm Emmanuel studied dance at Sarah Lawrence it stands to reason that he could have been one of those people who dance on the lawn during conference week. I'm choosing to believe that this is so. It's going to make every political event he appears at so much funnier to me.

The snow we got last week has finally melted and it seems weirdly like it is spring because the ground smells all earthy and it's warm again after being cold and snowy. I'm dreading when actual winter starts up.

I have got to remember to sign up for Yuletide tomorrow. I just have to finish up with my requests.

I just can't seem to stop crying. I'm so happy. For our country and for the world. This is a beautiful day.

I can't wait to hear Obama's speech!
brigid31: (Keanu-Sandra-Speed-mooreoaks)
Yay! I Voted!

The poll workers were saying it was a really big turnout (bigger than the last few elections) and I don't live in a swing state. There aren't even any Senators up for grab in this area. And most of our local positions only have one person runnng for them. It's so exciting.
