Ah, the joys of pop culture -- personally, I think it's wonderful when the Official Site of Merriam Webster references Spinal Tap.

I'm actually rather enjoying the Battlestar Galactica miniseries so far. I was going to give it a miss, but I found out that Jamie Bamber (Archie Kennedy from the A&E Hornblower movies) was playing Apollo, so I figured I check it out (what can I say? I think it's something about his eyebrows.)

The father/son angst thing is a bit overblown in places, IMHO, but overall, it's a lot more emotionally believable than the original. SciFi's been showing episodes of the old series over the past few weeks, and I can see why it appealed to me in sixth grade (including the obligatory crush on Dirk Benedict.) But, since I'm no longer in sixth grade, I'm preferring the new version.

Not sure I'd be interested in the impending spin-off series, but I don't do TV series in general. With the notable exception of Buffy (and, for a time, Bab5), I just don't retain sufficient interest, week after week to follow what's going on.

Anyway, if you missed last night's intro and are interested, they're rebroadcasting it before Part 2 tonight.

Yes, I know -- I'm babbling about inconsequentials. But it's actually nice to be able to babble about inconsequentials. Thanks to everyone who has expressed sympathy over Shawn's dad. It feels good to know that people care.


Marty DiBergi: "This tasteless cover is a good indication of the lack of musical invention within. The musical growth of this band cannot even be charted. They are treading water in a sea of retarded sexuality and bad poetry."
Nigel Tufnel: That's just nitpicking, isn't it?
-- This is Spinal Tap
