Folding, spindeling, and mutilating lauguage for fun since Aug, 2004

I usually get bored watching You Tube videos where people are just speaking extemporaneously about things they like.  But this guy has a charming voice, and I liked his take:

 

 

My favorite quote: "I was getting worried that they were going to lose all the knowledge of the Aasgaard. That would have pissed me off because the Aasgaard, they were - you know sometimes they were kind of dicks but what super-powerful alien race isn't at one point or another?"

Indeed.

It's on the top of my Netflix list already! I'm TRYING to get it. I guess I'm going to have to stop checking in on you until I can watch it with all the SG spoliers... ;-)

Hey Dracut!

I saw Martian Child at Sue's house last weekend. Have you seen that movie yet (spoiler alert: he gets to keep the kid) LOL! Of course, you already knew that. :-)

I can't help but think that there were some...um..."politically correct" changes to the story from the real-life one, though. :-(

Yeah, David's blogged about that. He thinks it's part of the reason the movie seems a bit lacking. That and no pickled mongoose sequence, which I've always thought of as one of the strongest parts of the book.

A bit dissappointing. When I'm rich and running the world, I'll remake it... ;-)

I figured the main reason was because, in our society, the fact that the adoptive father was gay would over-shadow the story of the father-son bonding.

Instead of being about a wanna-be father and a wanna-be son finding each other and becomeing a family, it would be burdoned with all sorts of political baggage that has nothing to do with the real story which attaches itself to any story about a gay character...even though the reality is that in the real story the viewpoint character is gay.

I am looking forward to the day when a person can tell a story about a gay character and have it just be a story about a gay character.
