199 Months [Oct. 29th, 2010|03:18 pm]
[Current Mood |sadsad]

At 3:00 PM today, our cat Gandalf died in my arms after a long illness. He took a turn for the worst late yesterday and we realized his time was approaching. After checking him at the veterinarian's office this morning, we stayed with him and cuddled him until it was over.

Gandalf first came to me in June of 1994. He was one of a litter of kittens that was rescued from drowning in the Genesee River. "Gandalf" turned out to be a poor name for him, he was more properly a Falstaff -- a cat of devious wiles, endless appetite, and indiscriminate affection. At his peak he weighed nearly 20 pounds.

He will be sorely missed.

Movie Thor Costume? [Jun. 3rd, 2010|01:05 pm]
[Current Mood |curiouscurious]

So Newsarama is reporting this shot as a possible leak of Chris Hemsworth in "Movie Thor" regalia:

If authentic (and it certainly doesn't look like a fake), it would suggest that they are being inspired strongly by the makeover of Thor that Olivier Coipel did when J. Michael Straczynski resurrected the title a few years ago, including the peculiar "gridmail" shirt.

There's something really wrong about Boston being the hottest spot on the map.

So. LOST. [May. 24th, 2010|09:42 am]
[Current Mood |disappointeddisappointed]

The LOST finale did what I kind of expected it would do, which is leave us with a "And then Starbuck disappears" kind of ending. No big questions answered, other than "What's up with the alternate timeline?", the answer to which is deeply unsatisfying, primarily because it's the answer that Cuse and Lindelof spent most of the first three seasons insisting wasn't the case...which was true at the time. 

Only the season six arc was resolved, and then in a somewhat unsatisfying way. Jacob & the MIB were not tied back to "The Man Behind The Curtain" in S3.  The MIB's name, which was supposedly significant, was not revealed. The importance of Walt (WAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLTTTTT!!!!) was not explained.  The DHARMA Initiative, time travel and Jughead are apparently left as unimportant red herrings in the overarching Jacob/MIB conflict.

Again, the comparison to the BG finale is apt: the fact that the denouement made me cry a little bit does not make up for the fact that the writers apparently felt empowered to pull unbelievable crap out of their asses at any point, and not have to explain it later.
