technocracygirl: Cartoon Raven from "Teen Titans" glaring at you from over the top of her book (Default)
A very excellent documentary, and one that make me want to go and read books by the people who were on the documentary. One of them is on ebook at KCLS, and I got a copy of the one that seems most apropos; A Drinking Life. We'll see how good it is after I finish the two I'm reading now.

The take-away message does seem to be that you can't legislate morality, with a side bonus of if you don't fund the enforcement, people will break the law. The entire thing is, as edited, very apropos to today, and I think that there's some very interesting parallels in the story to today. Like much (if not all) of Burns's other work, it is well worth the watching.

FANSQUEEE!

Okay, my fansquee just gave out in joy.

So, I loved Martha. She was smart, she was witty, she was rational, she was put together. I love her far, far more than I ever liked Rose. (Donna took me a while to warm up to, but I love her too now. But not as much as Martha.)

I was very, very sad that she didn't go on for season 4, but I had heard that Freema Agyeman was going to be in Law and Order: UK, and went, "Hey, the woman is working. Good for her."

But now [personal profile] lithera linked to this post wherein it is described that L&O: UK is going to be premiering on BBC America this October! Freema! On my TV! Yaaaaaay!

So then I have to go check out the wiki page on L&O: UK, to see who she plays, and...who's that on the other side of the cast photo? Is that...Jamie Bamber?

OMIGOD I HAVE SO MUCH SQUEE.

If I were not exhausted and having to do this 3:30 am thing again tomorrow, I would be on the net trolling for fanfic.

Yeah, that's getting TiVo'ed.

I found this movie on Netflix. Today, I watched it.

There is a dinosaur. It is, quite possibly, the best part about this movie.
[profile] wanderingfey is convinced that there was a sale on dinosaur FX when they were making this movie.

We watched it sober. DO NOT DO THIS! This is a movie to be watched at least two glasses in, if not three entire sheets to the wind. Robert and Thorpe? Really? Mrs. Holmes, you have much to answer for in this universe.

And, honestly, as long as you are drunk, it's pretty good.

And in good Sherlock news -- PBS's Masterpiece Mystery is going to show Sherlock! THe last time I heard about this, the BBC had made it impossible for anyone outside the UK to even see the trailer. And I hate watching things on the computer anyway. But, SQUEEEEEEE! I will get to see it! (Provided KCTS doesn't screw this up. And they shouldn't; they're good about Masterpiece. [I am still miffed that the Great Performances show of Chess never aired in our area.)

Mmmmmm, broken Holmes. Love, love, love.
