Troy is the only thing keeping me from Hulk smashing right now

Hart Hanson retweeted this earlier:



Oh look, is that an Unfollow button I see?

Being annoyed with 'shippers is one thing. Being annoyed with 'shippers when you constantly tease the 'ship and then pull the rug out from the viewers for six long years, and oh yeah, are too chicken shit to write an actual romantic arc because you're convinced it'll get your show canceled, that''s something completely different. DON'T BITE THE HAND THAT FEEDS YOU. Fuck you, show-runners-in-general-and-Hart-Hanson-in-particular, you suck.


(I think it says a lot about my Twitter inconstancy that I quit watching Bones a few episodes into this season and I still hadn't removed him from my feed.)

On a final note: Dreamhost moved my site to a new server this morning with hardly any notice, and while the only difference I've noticed has been that it's become much zippier, there may be issues somewhere that I'm not finding. If you see something amiss, can you let me know (this goes double for you, bellanut and typicrobots)?

I was internet-less for almost a week and I've only now caught up (well, still one episode behind on Dexter, but other than that...), so I come bearing a meme:







And a few TV thoughts, while I'm at it:

I feel like I may have missed an episode of Castle somewhere along the line, so I think I'm going to track that down next.

In other TV news, even though I enjoyed the Cougar Town pilot, I haven't watched a single episode since. Eastwick was starting to bore me by episode 3, and when the cancellation came, it just became one less thing to catch up with. Still watching and enjoying: The Good Wife, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, White Collar, Castle, Dollhouse, etc. My reality shows are all losing their shine this season. I mean, it's been a steady decline over the past few seasons, but this season there hasn't been a truly excellent reality season in the bunch.

The Letter E: YOU'RE DOING IT WRONG!

Two things that bug the everlivin' CRAP out of me:


  • Unless you're using it as an adjective (the premier episode), the word premiere is spelled with an E at the end. The meaning of premier when used as a noun is

    1. the head of the cabinet in France or Italy or certain other countries; first minister; prime minister.
    2. a chief officer.


    Season premiere, world premiere, series premiere. But Canada's premier.

  • It's not Bros Before Hoes! That means you put your bros before your gardening equipment, for crying out loud! It's Hos. Ho-ho-hos! Just...GAH!!!




And now that I've gotten that out of my system, last night's TV:

I still haven't watched Flash Forward, but I've got it cued up to watch right after Top Chef, which is what I'll be watching in five, four, three, two...

Please, please, please, do not go

I figured that after last week's sharp decline in posting, this week would show some improvement, but boy was I wrong. Dead, dead, dead. That's what it is around here.



Last Tuesday I sprained my ankle slightly. Nothing too bad, just that feeling that if you put it down just slightly wrong you'll be doing some serious damage. So I've spent much of the past week in a prone position (the bad weather may also have had something to do with it). In that time I've finished
Bones season 1 and Roswell season 1 (rewatch), and over half of Bones season 2.

Then yesterday, in a fit of inspiration, I capped four episodes of Bones season 1 (disc 3, which has the episode that finally got me from a "I'll watch until it gets good" to a "okay, I'm watching this show" state of mind [The Man in the Fallout Shelter], and one of the prettiest episodes to date [The Woman at the Airport]). I also finished capping The Office season 2 (deleted scenes from the last two discs and the bloopers. That's pretty much all I'd planned to cap - unless someone wants something else capped?) and I capped two more episodes of Eureka and half of The Mothman Prophecies, but that movie is LONG, yo.



Today I've not been remotely as industrious. Sure, I've organized my bookmarks, done errands and cleaned my apartment, but unless there's something tangible I can put online, does it really matter? (It's sort of like that tree falling in the woods thing.)

I've also been alternating Bones season 2 with Man vs. Wild, which led to a lot of to-ing and fro-ing when it came to settling on which one to watch while eating dinner since the ick factor can be pretty high for both. (In the end I went for Bones, because the real life stuff always cuts deeper for me.)



Tomorrow: Closet overhaul, more cleaning and more TV! And I'll try to finish The Mothman Prophecies and continue with Bones (unless someone knows a good source for DVD caps? My "exhaustive" search started and ended with this post.)
