I finally finished my first read-through this weekend, by the by. Seems like the scale of the story keeps steadily escalating with each volume, which I have no complaints about.

One other thing I notice towards the end is how the unintended consequences for economies in the process of scaling up can pile up PDQ...

Decided to add one for tv-eh.com to my feeds. It's a blog devoted to Canadian-made TV series. 
 

 

Playoffs

Well, there went that hope for this hockey season.

More later, if I can focus the brain and energy enough after work tonight.

1. The seventh game of the playoff series between the Ottawa Senators and Pittsburgh Penguins starts tonight shortly after 8 PM EST.

2. Today is the 40th anniversary of the launch of Star Wars (Episode IV: A New Hope) at the movie theatres.

The phrase "Do, or do not. There is no 'try'" comes to mind, and I expect I'm not alone in that.

Good night, and good luck.

Yes, I saw some of his 007 work.

But for me? His Saintly adventures on the silver screens of our living rooms are worthy of our better attentions.

Vaya con dios, Sir Roger.

Good morning, and good luck.

Going back to work tomorrow and my lungs are still bugging me.

Manchester

Just started seeing reports about Manchester, UK. Not going to post any links because you've all probably seen more than enough by now from other sources, and the news story is still very much "in progress".

If you lost anyone tonight, I'm sorry.

...going out to [personal profile] dianeduane and [personal profile] m_danson, seeing as your Occasions of Note fall a day apart from each other.

Hoping your days have been kind to each of you.

You know how for years, people wanted Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill play out the dialogue of The Killing Joke, and eventually we got that direct-to-video movie out of that desire of the audience?

Well, there's the first ten(?) pages of Jessica Jones # 8 from Marvel this past month. Two characters, Jones herself and Maria Hill, in Jessica's bathroom. Spoiler-free as I can make it, it's a combination plot-infodump, airing of grievances, confessionals, and contract negotiations between the two characters.

I would like to see/hear Krysten Ritter and Cobie Smulders play out that scene in character.

Ottawa Comiccon is this weekend, and among the actors named as guests at that event are the following:
  • Peter Capaldi
  • Jenna Coleman
  • Alex Kingston
  • John Barrowman
We have enough "names" present in Ottawa-Gatineau as of this morning that we could have filmed an episode of Doctor Who entirely on location hereabouts. A script worth performing and a production team were unavailable, however.

Missed opportunity.

Much like the CBC letting the series escape to Space Channel...

One: tonight's Doctor Who is an argument for labour unions if ever I've watched it.

Two: pleased by the Sens' game one results.
dewline: (canadian media)
I saw that movie tonight. I laughed, I cried, I swore (in both official languages)...and it was worth it.

Music video (that's actually related)!

dewline: (celebration)
...to [personal profile] jkcarrier!

Many happier birthdays to you!

So this is growing ever more horrific. I say again: we should not have to endure living in a world where Global Evil Conspiracy Theories are actual facts proven/provable by credible journalists.

And there's a Canadian connection, in Victoria, BC. AggregateIQ by corporate name.

The people who try to organize such conspiracies ought to be serving time. Though, for what and under whose jail system...?

A further note: I would count the Guardian's people uncovering this info as a good thing. It's now out in the public realm, where we can figure out what useful things can be done about it.
