-- Fr. Schiller, "On the Pathetic"
Rewatched all but the last twenty minutes of "Kontroll" last night after our rotation (we finished it today).
Thereafter I put on "Clerks", silently, in the background while sitting in the office and ... Read more
Completing and beginning, summing up, and miscellany.
At the beginning of the year I did the 'January Jumpstart', and did a mix of cardio and various videos over the course of four weeks. It was at times difficult to stick with it, ... Read more
Sunday celebration, Monday rotation, and various and sundry.
What do you do on the 17th of March? If it's 2012 you get some good and frequently (but not exclusively) Irish beer from the best beer store in town (or, in this case, acr... Read more
If there's a group I've enjoyed ridiculing this year, it's all those related to the quacktastic ( www.quackwatch.org/01Qua ckeryRelatedTopics/holisti cdent.html ) Weston A. Price Foundation, such as Sally Fallon and her book ... Read more
Ms. S. worked an extra shift and sleeps mightily. For breakfast/brunch she gets a waffle; since Clinton at the least and a certain 'Doonsbury' strip we taken "to waffle" as synonymous with "to flip flop", "to vacillate"; and the waffle is a food... Read more
An all 'X-Files' and 'Millennium' entry.
"Unusual Suspects" (a Lone Gunmen-centric episode) and "Sense and Antisense" today in 'X-Files' and 'Millennium' watching. The former is quite entertaining, a good but not favorite episode, a... Read more
So I learned from Carl Sagan in 'Cosmos'. In any case, it's Pi(e) Day.
For those who don't pay attention, the simple 'logic' is as follows: March 14 = 3/14 (in the U.S.) = 3.14 = pi ... pi Day!
But if we 'mirror' 3.14 we 'get' PIE (don... Read more
1. Today in 'Millennium' Frank had to "Beware of the Dog". Or, rather, dogs.
2. Today in 'X-Files' Scully almost died again, but of course didn't; Skinner and others were mistrusted; and we ended up more or less where we began.
3. I ma... Read more
"[...] Details are confusing. It is only by selection, by elimination, by emphasis, that we get at the real meaning of things." (Georgia O'Keeffe)
Confusion, creativity, and craft beer.

Why there was never that crossover marketing with 'The X-Files' I'll never understand ...
1. We began season two of 'Millennium' today and season five of 'The X-Files'. Usually I'd have more to say about each episode. I found both amazing i... Read more
... if J.L. did a Judge Dredd remake?
It's Sunday evening, we had delicious and filling food down the road -- hint: margaritas ... quesadillas ... fried ice cream ... well, I splurged on that, but someone else was much better behaved --, an... Read more
Friday we had our triple feature; Saturday featured pancakes and mounds; and the evening brought us a return to form.
The Matthew McConaughey triple feature was: "Magic Mike", "Killer Joe", and "The Paperboy".
In order of good-... Read more
Shopping, potatoes, animal concerns; or: economics, eating, and ethics.
Ms. S. and I decided -- post "Holy Motors" -- that we ought to watch the apparent trainwreck that is "The Paperboy". And I'm also in the mood for the higher-cla... Read more

It's all about microwaves and miniatures today.
We stopped at Innisfree downtown last night after the wonderful and watchable "Holy Motors".
The beer selection at the bar was laughable, but we knew that going in, as they had t... Read more
