five for tonight

13 July, 2010

Random things on my mind: 1.  I bow down at the geek altar of io9 for reinventing the opening credits to Firefly as an 80′s sci-fi action-drama. 2. And THEN… they followed it up with Simon Tam, MD: There are just no words for being overwhelmed with this much awesome.  Well played, io9, well played. […]

top 5 favorite things right now, completely (at) random

17 April, 2009

(with little or no explanation.  so take that!) 1.   Rock Paper Scissors Spock Lizard.  And on a t-shirt as well! 2.   The ending of Veronica Mars Season 2.  I know I’m watching this like 3 years too late to discuss it with anyone, but that season finale?  Holy crap.  It got a little Twin Peaks, […]

Top Five Cravings of the Moment

23 February, 2009

1.  Half-Sour Pickles from Trader Joe’s.  Salty.  Predictable.  Whatevs.  I bought two jars last time and they were gone inside of a week.  It’s an illness. 2.  The Beach.  Today was a nasty, rainy, windy mess or else I would have gone there just to walk and feel better. 3.  Fake fruit.  This is a […]

Five things that almost ruin “Four Weddings and a Funeral”

(a movie that I find fairly delightful) 1.  The absurd hats.  Did I miss something?  Were enormous floppy hats really that in style at the end of the 80′s? 2.  Andie Macdowell.  (in general) 3.  The line “Is it still raining?  I hadn’t noticed.”  (and the way she says it.) 4.  The line “Is it […]

Introduction:  I was going to make a list of my favorite episodes of television ever, but that is too long a list and I find myself stuck between what I think are the best episodes and what are my favorites.  That isn’t always the same thing and I’m aware of that.  So instead, here are […]

Foods that I’ve tried (unsuccessfully) to acquire a taste for

25 August, 2008

In no particular order: 1.  cooked peppers 2.  sushi 3.  spicy foods (curries, sauces, salsas, peppers, all of the above) 4.  lentils 5.  beer

Ordered List: Wes Anderson Films

18 August, 2008

I really enjoy all of Wes Anderson’s work.  The Rushmore vs. Royal Tenenbaums: “Which is a better film?” debate has been bounced around numerous times in my social circle.  This list is not actually representative of the BEST*, as much as explicit favoritism, in order from most favorite to least: 1.  Rushmore 2.  The Darjeeling […]
