Thanks everyone for your thoughtful comments on my "why all the men?" post. I'm working my way through replies.
Comments on FMA 30 later, but for now, check out these scans from Newtype. (Not scanned by me.) Especially this pic of Hughes and Roy. They're in casual clothes and Roy, particularly, looks amazing.
Not exactly Stargate
Saturday we went to a local production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and I learned that it's now impossible for me to watch/read anything about Ancient Egypt without running it through the Stargate filter. I did manage to restrain myself from shouting out "Jaffa kree!" when the jackal-headed guards took their bow. Also, Joseph's initial costume looked a lot like Luke Skywalker, which seemed appropriate.
I stayed up late to watch SNL and catch the HP sketch. How hilarious! And I admit that I went all "My fic!" at the Fred/Hermione/George bit. I must ponder writing some more about them.
Afterwards, there was an SNL re-run and lo! David Duchovney playing Mulder in a sketch where Janet Reno is putting the moves on him. It made me very wistful about TXF. And then I went to bed.
Shatner! James Spader! OMG, Elanor! That is all.
I went to see Kill Bill today, which was very enjoyable. More on that later. But, damn, I've got to find a way to see a movie without getting a huge fucking headache. Good thing I can get codeine over the counter. :)
I've been re-reading Snow Crash, as you can probably tell from my icon. I'd forgotten how odd the pacing is. There are huge info-dumps and then strange action sequences. I love it. I also re-read Zodiac not long ago, which was very cool. I still haven't made it all the way through Quicksilver though. I loved the first section, but I'm bogged down in the second. I think the dialogue is too clever for me there.
