Some nerdy afterthoughts...
In Star Wars: Episode 3, when the Emperor tells Anakin that his old master was so powerful that he could "even create life", that implies that Anakin's supposed "immaculate conception could have been orchestrated by the Sith in order to create the ultimate Sith Lord. Thank Lucas, for inventing a completely AWESOME concept within the Star Wars canon in the last 20 years and completely avoiding the concept...you probably did it accidentally, you jerk.
God, forbid, if Pushing Daisies gets canceled, my vision of the show involves Ned and Chuck living to a ripe old age, and on Ned's death bed, they finally kiss again, they they both die beautifully....OR it just occurs to me that Ned can die, Chuck kisses him, and then die of old age/.broken heart, etc, and NOT because she touched him. Agh, glorious tragedy. Bryan Fuller would never let Chuck die in any way not gorgeous.
I am SO into Histeria (tm) right now! the last vestiges of my childhood television watching and it will be how my children learn about Sergei Eisenstein and the Industrial Revolution. Yay learning!
Incidentally, Captain and Flapjack is one of my favorite new cartoons right now.
Also, I don't have to go to Greece to know about Greek mythology, asshole.
