I know a few Mac users on my Friends list have posted about iPhoto and sharing photos on LJ. If you have a paid account  and want to use Scrapbook, LJ's photo hosting service, there's an iPhoto plugin for it.  It's still in beta, but here's the announcement in fotobilder_user.

I have lots of things bumping around my head to post, but I need to let them sort themselves into coherent posts first, plus I'm catching up on my LJ Friends posts back to Friday (the 21st) since I was pretty much offline all weekend. I'm sitting down and reading/commenting between tending to Laurel and the laundry (working on Mount Washmore today *g*).

Random question: Do you watch NBC's new series Medium? If so, what do you think of it?

We kinda of like it. It's very low key.

The mystries are not so great, because they hide clues from the viewer, but the stories are cool.

We loved last night's episode as she walked her daughter through dealing with being a medium.

I like it, but I have to remind myself when it's on. I should note its time on the calendar so I don't miss future episodes!

I fear it's going to die quickly because the last new show I liked this much (Fox's Harsh Realm) was pulled after just three episodes.

Mount Washmore! Bing!

I am totally hooked on Medium. I wasn't a big P. Arquette fan before this, but the whole cast is knocking my socks off, acting-wise. The writing's pretty good, no silly cinematic weirdness (cf. Boston Legal), no stupid cameos (cf., again, Boston Legal), etc. My only worry is that it's opposite CSI: Miami. So far that hasn't been a conflict--due to creative rerun scheduling--but at some point I'm going to have to pick a show to the detriment of the other. I have the same problem w/ Veronica Mars (which I am NOT just watching because I'm infatuated with Kristen Bell. NOT infatuated, I tell you!) and Scrubs/Committed.

*sigh* It looks like I'm going to have to break down and get a TiVo.

Or a girlfriend.

Yah, I like Veronica Mars, too -- and it's not because "Veronica" was my favorite name for a chickie until... well, not so long ago. (Though, to be honest I wouldn't complain too much if Kristen Bell were to decide to take her clothes off over here -- did you know that she attended Tisch?)

But, if I had to choose a show it would probably be "Block Buster {again tonight}" since most TV shows have moved from just 'boring' to outright 'sucking', sad to say. Gilmore Girls is still kinda ok and Housewives is fun, but... eh, there isn't much in the way of TV that's really worth watching, is there?

I did not know she attended Tisch, which is probably a good thing since I'm afraid that I have too many stalker tendecies as it is.

I'm with you on the decline of Western Civilization as illustrated by TV lately. Gilmore Girls has been off-kilter for a while now. Even Monk--which used to be my Numbah One Fave--has left me a little disappointed. Although the other old standby, ER, has been getting better, I still feel a little jilted. I gave up a social life for this crap?

But BlockBuster hasn't really done it for me earlier. In fact, the last movie I rented and really enjoyed was "Mean Girls." Everything else has been yawn city.

OTOH, I have been reading more, and that has been wonderful. I'm almost done with the second book in Neal Stephenson's Baroque Cycle and it's rocking my world. . .

City of Lost Children and Riddick are currently on my favs list.

Mount Washmore is a term I picked up from FlyLady.

I never got into CSI: Miami, so there's no conflict for me there, but now that I know Veronica Mars is opposite Scrubs... well, it still wins because Vogon doesn't like Scrubs.

Given the choice of TiVo or girlfriend, I would go with the TiVo. A girlfriend wouldn't be half bad, though. I have no idea where to find one here or I'd offer recommendations. (If you were female looking for a boyfriend in Denver I could offer several choices complete with letters of introduction and notes on their bad habits.)

I know what you mean about CSI: Miami. I'm not all that into it, so it hasn't been too painful to give it up in favour of Medium. For me, it's always been like methadone to my CSI: LV heroin.

How can Vogon not like Scrubs? All in all, though, VM still wins for me, too--and not just because of the crush I do NOT have--because it's just a better, more intelligent and entertaining show.

I think you're right about the TiVo v. Girlfriend debate, too. Even if I could just go out and buy a nice girl, there's no guarantee she'd be reliable in the tape-my-shows department. Plus, I know for certain that TiVo will absolutely love the cats.

Scrubs is kind of like when you try a new restaurant and the food is good but somehow just doesn't work for you. It's like... trying to have a salad at McDonald's, all you keep thinking about is how Jason's would easily have been a better deal.

And, the place to go to find a gf in Dallas seems to be Matchmaker.com, even though I dislike them muchly (but, if you do go there, be brutally honest while being completely vague at the same time; this appears to be both what the women there want, as well as what they strive to be -- usually with great success). But, I know a bunch of nice girls, if you know what you're looking for... I tend to be a bit of a red hair junkie, so I know a few of those, too. And, I know where to find the "not really looking to date... much" girls. LOL But, I'm happy with my own choice, so this is all useless knowledge.

I haven't seen it, just because it _really_ pisses me off when networks put that kind of crap on.

(Unless, she's, like, not actually psychic or something, and they're all like "DO YOU SEE THE MURDERER?!?!?!?!" and she's all like "I see... water..." and they're all "That's what you said the last ten times! And the last time, when the person was killed by a washing machine, you said that counted!")

I find it amusing, though I'm still not sure why they had so many Texas Rangers greeting her plane in the first episode. I thought the channel had changed or something, it was just so strange.
