The Bathroom girl tried to get into X-Factor at the insistence of her mother.

She did not get through to the auditions....something about her music not to their taste.

Me'thinks, the casting person was an idiot.

Off to Kingston for Remembrance Sunday.

So more money is to be lent to Northern Rock. £12bn, but since it will be split into two banks, the good bank gets all the money, whilst the bad bank has to pay it back to the tax payer.

Did a Labour Minister get promised a Directorship for this scenario?

Month 4 Week 4

Season 2
Episode 2: Annoyed that they got the Invisible Woman killed and they did it off screen. I suppose being invisible is just too hard a character concept to write.
They have some different ideas, but I can see the comparisons to Torchwood and Primeval. For a bunch of super killers, Ashley and her cohorts looked stiff.

Could they not have come up with a better male character than the recycled Daniel Jackson clone?

Read more...Collapse )Dollhouse Season 2 Episode 4

I did feel that the ending was a cop out, but it did let Dichen Lachman stay on in the show.

I am seeing that Whedon is avoiding the mistakes made with Firefly. Basically Chinese culture without any Chinese people or Asians to be seen.
Dichen is of Asian descent within the main cast and we keep seeing other Asians in the background including one agent and one police officer.

Now we just need to have him learn a few things about sexual slavery.

I am seeing some similarities to his character of Inara, the companion/ courtesan. At least, in her case she supposedly chose it of her own free will.

Sierra is different, she was forced into becoming a sex slave. THere should have been a scene in which Boyd and Topher convince her that she would be safer in the Dollhouse.

Are the Dolls being shown as people who did not have direction in life and are (at heart) submissive personalities?

Knew I was going to crash so went to bed early. Time went back for the Autumn and so managed to get an extra hour for sleep. Crashed for six hours.

Eskrima practice. Should have checked to ensure tube is running. Engineering works again and had to detour.

Went with the guys for a run.
Three miles.

Then more Eskrima.

Still unsure how my Everyman pattern will be affected by the Seasonal changes. Winter time usually means more sleep for me. Will see what happens.

Stargate - Universe

As I have discussed with a friend.

I hope some of the annoying ones get vented out of the airlock before they meet any alien race. They're liable to embarrass the rest of humanity.

Did they have to go for the Deus Ex Machina of the friendly alien to help them find the right sort of sand?

GI JOE: Worst Movie Ever


Just seen G.I. Joe:

Good points:
Sienna Miller in leather outft.
Rachel Nichols in leather outfit.

Bad points:
Karolin Kurkova not in leather outfit and not enough scenes.

The rest was mediocre at best.
GI JOE: Worst Movie Ever

Team America = destroying the Eiffel Tower. Does Hollywood have any knowledge of Paris? How about destroying the Louvre instead?

I'm a fan of Ray Park, but his build was wrong for Snake Eyes.

They also turned Storm Shadow into a murderer.
