Crisis on Infinite Wolves

I’ve been absent from my blog. From much of online, in truth. There have been Things. But there will always be Things. So it goes. Here’s some stuff I’ve been saving up to talk at you about. ~~~~~~~~~~ I’ve been watching TV lately. By that, I mean watching programs within a week of when they air. As someone whose natural proclivity is to TiVo an entire season and a half before I bother watching (if […]

Time division.

The plan was to get up and write about what I dreamed. Typically I then didn’t dream anything remotely coherent. The best I can recall is that it featured Seth Green, Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty, and a drop of blood on a golden labrador retriever. I dunno either. But I will tell you that Maleficent fucked me up when I was a kid, so apparently I’m still five. I’m loving doing my old SNL reviews, […]

Master List of Lists

 

I’m pretty anal about both lists and keeping things organized. Maybe you are too. If so, this is the page for you. Since I like to go through stuff in big chunks made up of lots of little chunks, the respective lists linked from these pages will break it all down for you, making it easy to find exactly what you’re looking for. I figure this will mostly be useful for serials, such as my […]

A Href = Wednesday, 16 June

The Internet’s a big place. There are at least 100 different sites out there! How will you ever find the time to sift through the dregs for the funniest macros, the awesomest pictures, the interestingest lists? You can’t. It’s impossible. Don’t try. Instead, let Jet Wolf do it for you. Here’s today’s dose of random shit that I took the trouble to bookmark, just for you. Historypin. It combines some of my favourite things: photos, […]

LOST: Final Thoughts.

I gave myself a day to ponder on the show as a totality, as the sum of all its parts which I’ve picked on and needled and enjoyed and appreciated and hated and dogged and questioned quite extensively for the past six weeks. Here’s my final conclusion: It just wasn’t a good story. It had its moments, absolutely. Stripping it down to the bone, Jack had a fully realized and ultimately satisfying character arc. He […]

LOST: The Big List (final version)

As you all doubtless know by now, about six weeks ago I decided to run a marathon of Lost. If for some reason you don’t know then I recommend reading Intro to a Lostathon. Sunday night was – as pretty much everyone also knows regardless of their personal interest – the finale. I already posted my notes for that episode, but those were episode specific. With this post I’ll be going back to look at […]

The Heavy Burden of Lip Balm

I had someone in to fix our heater on Friday. This is but the latest in a long string of guys out to fix my heater, which is a tale of some frustration perhaps for another time. However, as I tried to make some small talk (never a forte of mine) I asked if he was going to watch the Super Bowl. “Hell yeah!” he responded enthusiastically. I nodded. A pointless gesture, as he had […]
