I burned the pad of my thumb on Wednesday, so now you know why I haven't been posting or commenting as much as usual. I followed the SOP for burn treatment and now it's just a little sore, which isn't bad for what was probably a second-degree burn.


Holiday photos are up and half-heartedly captioned in the castle.geek.net gallery album for Christmas 2005. I wrote most of the captions while half-awake, so feel free to point out any obvious errors. I'll fix the awkward phrasing in the photo credits from Christmas Day later.


Vogon created Netflix identities for me and the midget. Rating films to get better recommendations is interesting. I initially indicated that I liked the Television genre instead of just adding the few series I'd like to see to my queue and now it keeps recommending Sex and the City and Friends even though I click "Not Interested" every time one comes up. Laurel's only favorite genres are Anime & Animation and Children & Family, yet it recommended Friends to her too. Bleh. After adding about a dozen movies to her queue from series or characters I know she likes, we started rating her recommendations and it's getting better, though I had to rate her not interested in Enterprise too after it somehow made that connection.

On that note:
- Which Mr. Show discs would you recommend? Should I just start at the beginning and watch them in order of release?
- Why isn't Robot Chicken Season 1 coming out on DVD until March?
- Is Goodnight Sweetheart ever going to be released on DVD?
- Is anyone else as amused as I am by the end of the voice talent of Bratz: Rock Angelz including Lacey Chabert, Soleil Moon Frye and Wendie Malick? Or that it's even mentioned in the blurb?

awww. some super cute photos in there. =)

Thanks. I have no idea where she gets it from. (;

It's kind of funny, now that she has her own camera she takes more photos with mine because she noticed her camera doesn't have an LCD preview pane on the back. Picky, picky! Heh.

I'd actually start in with Season 3, really. Seasons 1 & 2 had their moments, but they were a bit more uneven. There's probably enough there to make you go "Oh, there is something to Mr. Show!" but there's a few more clunkers. They didn't hit their stride until Season 3. And, sadly, Season 4 is the last.

I'm just confused why it's taking so long for Wonder Showzen to come out...

Also, according to the boards, apparently Time-Life is putting out copies of Goodnight, Sweetheart, which means that while those discs will probably be overpriced and barebones, a Real Version will probably be coming out relatively soon. (IIRC, same thing has happened with a lot of shows, including the Muppet Show.)

Thanks. I was hoping to tap your wisdom on Mr. Show.

I've heard about Goodnight, Sweetheart being released a few times now but I haven't seen anything yet.

And for your amusement, the first ten movies in my Netflix queue:
  1. Storytelling

  2. Fire

  3. Awakenings

  4. The Lathe of Heaven

  5. Pi: Faith in Chaos

  6. Harsh Realm: The Complete Series: Disc 1

  7. Harsh Realm: The Complete Series: Disc 2

  8. Harsh Realm: The Complete Series: Disc 3

  9. The Iron Giant: Special Edition

  10. The World According to Garp

great photos! that little gal is adorable, and quite the budding photographer herself.

She was really peeved that her new camera didn't have an LCD preview screen on the back like mine. The way digital camera prices are coming down, I told her that she can have my current camera as soon as it's replaced by a newer model.

Who is Lacey Chabert? should I know her? Am I too lazy to use IMDB?
Jan. 8th, 2006 03:40 am (UTC)
I think her best-known role was in Party of Five? I never watched the show. I know her from being the voice of Eliza in The Wild Thornberrys and the kinda ditzy girl in Mean Girls.

reference the pics - that Santa looks evil.
Jan. 8th, 2006 03:43 am (UTC)
Which one -- the life-size Santa figurine in the first photo or the one from the Santa photo with Laurel? The latter was friendlier this year than the last one she saw (in 2001, [photo].
Jan. 8th, 2006 06:53 pm (UTC)
no, the first one. He looks like that burger king commercial.
Jan. 9th, 2006 06:14 am (UTC)
Yeah, that Santa was weird. It was standing in the middle of a display of artificial trees, which made me wonder (the other freestanding Santas, reindeer, etc. were on another display island) and then I saw the tag and nearly peed myself laughing.
