everything goes back to Babylon 5 today...  

I received a notice that vol. 11 of the B5 scripts is coming out soon. This is the one that covers the transition from S.4 to S.5. Now, I remember the wankstorm of that period, especially the departure/firing/mistaken negotiating tactic of Claudia Christian and I'm desperately curious to see if JMS' story has changed at all in the intervening years. I gave up on getting all the volumes, focusing just on my favorites, even though I really want the "bonus" volume which contains the original outline of the five-year plan (hopefully someone will get it and post at least that part) but I might have to get this one.

Couldn't get into Supernatural last night. It's not like I don't like meta comedy episodes either (hell, I LOVE "200", although I'm a lot more iffy on "Wormhole X-Treme" from the SG-1 collection), but ... I don't know. Maybe it was me. Nice to see Gary Cole again, however briefly. Makes me want to dig out my American Gothic and Crusade DVDs.

Speaking of Crusade, sort of, I was watching Lost the other day and wishing one of the magical powers of the island would let Jin suddenly speak English. Do they have to be so stupidly realistic about this one thing? *sigh* But Daniel Dae Kim is still ridiculously HOT. (see icon for Jin yumminess) Someday I'll have to finish that abandoned story in which Matheson and his wife have hot telepath sex...

It's quite hilarious watching Lost with someone who grew up in Hawaii, though, because he can identify where they filmed everything. This past week it was Desmond's flashback where the "monastery" was my sister-in-law's high school. *snerk*

I'm writing my Jeremiah ficathon fic. *sigh* WHY, OH WHY, do I have to do these long plotty action things? Just cracked 5000 words and they haven't even escaped yet...

Everything should always come back to B5. All of this has happened before, baby.

*looks cute and fic-less*

I am IMMUNE to Bambi eyes right now, girlfriend. I have ten days to write (oh, and beta) at least another 5000 words.

But, nice try. :)

Which is sad. I shall console myself with B5 and writing fic, I suppose.

oh good. *ahem* I mean, yes, terribly sad. I'm very sorry that my lack of fic production is forcing you to write your own fic and watch B5. It's a tragedy.

You mock my pain!

Actually, there will be SG, first. And Painkiller Jane. And Bowie videos.
