little review

Poem for Friday

Collapse )

That poem makes me think of a couple of Doctor Who episodes. I don't have a lot to report except that my eBay seller quickly replaced the Xena DVDs that didn't work in my set, Daniel brought home the cheesecakes we bought to support his school choir, Adam discovered how to create an origami heart valentine on the internet, and my Valentines are all purchased. I didn't accomplish much today besides the bare essentials, but hey, the kids got picked up, the dishes got washed, the Star Trek episode I need to review got watched, and the cats did not starve to death -- though according to them, the latter was a near thing.

Since I was testing my new Xena DVDs, I put on "The Xena Scrolls," which had been on a dud disc (as was "A Day in the Life" so obviously these needed to be replaced ASAP). Gabrielle as Indiana Jones never gets old, but I must confess that I have trouble taking my eyes off Ares, particularly now, wondering what Kevin Smith would have been doing if only. And Next Gen's "First Contact" remains terrific. And I can't decide who's side I'm on in the Shepard Fairey-AP lawsuit; I certainly don't think the AP is entitled to compensation or to block the use of Fairey's image, but as someone who regularly finds her photos snitched and manipulated without any credit, I do think photographer Mannie Garcia is entitled to have his name on the credit for the poster.
