I am (still) fannish.

I've been wondering why I've felt so lukewarm about shelling out money for shows on DVD that I really do like--Nip/Tuck, Monk, Dead Like Me, S1 & S2 of Due South, etc. I haven't even seen all of first-season N/T and Monk, and these are tops on my Wish List. And yet. Then I thought about shows that aren't yet available on DVD, and realized that there are in fact some I'd snap up in a minute if they were/when they are:

  • Battlestar Galactica (full first 2004-5 series)
  • Invisible Man (only in UK right now, sigh)
  • Odyssey 5 (sob)
  • Action (coming out soon)
  • News Radio (coming out soon)

    Obviously I recommend these.

    I want the other shows too. I'm just trying to be gentle on my credit card, and I still have three full sets of Buffy & Angel seasons I haven't rewatched yet, so....

    I dedicate my icon to the bastards who have not yet released Odyssey 5.

    ETA: Sadly, I think I was wrong about Action coming out soon. Also, I commented with some pimpful show descriptions.

    JP3 rec: Going Home

    Going Home by Kaly. A nice coda to the movie, and a modest PG--which actually suits the source material, as you can smoothly roll from the end of the reel into this story, which gives the shippy developments greater plausibility.

    You know, I might actually find myself writing a little JP3 ficlet, if I didn't feel compelled to learn something about Pteranodons before doing so. And thus the injection of research kills the slash virus.

    that music meme

    Why? Why?! Because I am bored! Bored!

    Total Volume of Music Files on My Computer: On my work computer, 2.06 GB. 1000+ files.

    Last CD I Bought: *Most* recently, probably a bargain mark-down at Half-Price Books, but I don't know what in particular. But Amazon.com tells me that in late 2004 I bought a CD single of "Solsbury Hill" mixes by Erasure. (Great CD.)

    Last Music I Listened to Before Doing This Meme: "Vivi Davvero" by Giorgia.

    Five Songs I Listened to a Lot This Week (because they are on my work-out playlist):

    * "Sin Wagon" - Dixie Chicks
    * "Knock on Wood" - Amii Stewart
    * "Waiting for You" - Seal
    * "Solsbury Hill" - Erasure
    * "Battleflag" - Lo Fidelity Allstars

    I defy convention and tag no one with this meme, ha ha! My god, I'm a trend-bucker. That doesn't rhyme with anything, by the way. No. Not at all.
