Catching up  
I visited with my good friend who's now living in Fairbanks, Alaska. Damn. It's seventeen below there. I'm a weather wimp, I know, but that's ridiculously cold! Three hours of sunlight. But on the really, really cool side of the equation: businesses have dog runs to keep your commuting vehicles happy while you're at work!

OMG, the BSG trailer has finally landed! meep . Plus the Lost trailer/vid! WHY IS IT NOT JANUARY? WHYYYYYY?

My only consolation in late December is going to be the Dec. 20 broadcast of Lost Treasure of the Grand Canyon with Michael Shanks, JR Bourne, and Shannon Doherty. There muse be some con stories about that film shoot, or there is no justice. Plus, it's got to be AWESOMELY BAD CRACK. *marks calendar*

Only 3 more eps of Dexter. Woes. It's so freakin good this season. Tonight's especially. OMG, the look on Debra's face when she thought it was Anton's body they found and how she was still struggling to hold it together... man, I love Debra. Also great was how Dexter puts all the pieces together and realized Miguel PWNED him. I figured Miguel was gonna be toast eventually, since he was gonna get on Dexter's hit list, but not because he was playing Dexter the whole time. Well done, show. Jimmy Smits is totally bringing his A-game to this - charming and populist, and just as sociopathic as Dexter.

"My first real emotion..." uh, yeah, Dexter, that's called being really pissed off. heh.


On a totally other subject, I am pondering getting kidlet a wee keyboard for christmas. He loves his music class at school like crazy (and is learning a mean xylophone! *g*) but instruments have the potential to be SO annoying. At least it's not a drum kit...

We're opting for the wee acoustic guitar ourselves.

I know you're looking for something more "real" but a while back we got our guy this hilarious "cat keyboard" that really has tempo control, various synthesized beats, and can record a long string of notes *and cords* (many of them just do individual notes). I was pretty impressed for a cheap Target toy. Anyway, my overzealous and energetic kiddo has been pretty good with it, and right now he's really enjoying recording his music and listening to it.

All of this is to say "Go for it!"

Haven't watched the BSG trailer. Honestly, I'm not that excited about the next season, so maybe I *should* watch to get more excited/nervous...

hee, the Kitty keyboard! I saw that but I didn't realize it did so much. cool to know. That would certainly be more useful than some of the keyboards.

and yeah, I think you should watch the trailer. It doesn't give away too much (but yes, spoilers for at least the overall direction beyond "Finding Earth does not lead to peace and joy", which, duh), but does have a whole lot of "What the frak!" moments. at least for me.

I don't recall any Helo in it, but there's definitely some Athena. Lots of Kara, Bill and Laura, and lots of fast snippets of others.

I actually watched and don't regret it at all. It helped me get a little more excited.
