If you haven't watched it, check out "Haven" and "Defiance".  Love science fiction but it needs to maintain some form of reality.


I've just finished Haven. It makes me want to visit Nova Scotia. Not to mention the more shallow reasons for watching it (for example). I'm going through withdrawal so need to watch the gag reels and other promotional stuff.
What next?

I'm also enjoying a 4-part detective series called "Hinterland". From the name, you wouldn't realise that it's set in Aberystwyth (West Wales) and the characters speak a mix of english and welsh (with subtitles). Welsh is used for greetings, casual conversations and such but for anything important, they switch to english. What I like about it is that it has regular people doing bad things under difficult circumstances rather than psychopaths.

Yes, I know :) I am a little anti fan in this - I love DW and I like Sherlock but both are ran by Moffat so it takes forever for both shows to get another season :D

We had our first bad experience attending our little community theater the other evening, at a showing of ON THE TOWN. It's not that the performance was terrible ... it was not great but conveyed the cute and clever optimism of the story. But unfortunately, there was a row of younger people (even more unfortunately, seated directly behind us) who were clearly friends with the actor playing Gabey, and they hooted and hollered over his every move and facial expression - whether or not he was the focus of the scene - the entire show. After his songs, they chanted his name. Not only did it distract the audience in the small theater, but I'm certain it must have distracted him and the whole cast. He started out being my favorite performer in the cast, but by the end he seemed distracted and seemed to have a couple of flubs.

We were in a raucous audience last year for THE DROWSY CHAPERONE, and some of the people on that night knew the actor playing Aldolpho, whose performance stole the show, but the laughter was appropriate on that occasion. This was just awkward. At the end, there was no standing ovation (rare), except by that one row, and I thought the entire audience was just exhausted and turned off by it. Too bad those people couldn't recognize it's not a one-man concert. Luckily, it's an inexpensive evening. I can only imagine how I'd feel if somebody did something similar on Broadway, with how much those tickets cost.

I saw LUCY with my daughter today. Meh. The "science" in it was ridiculous, and it had all these implications that increasing human knowledge somehow decreases people's humanity. The premise (random person absorbs superdrug by mistake, giving her super knowledge and abilities) was somewhat interesting - if it were a standard action movie. But instead it went all metaphysical and deep, and it was just too ridiculous for me. But my daughter liked it, and she can make me see so-so or even bad movies for the rest of my life, since I owe seeing Les Mis to her.

What I found most interesting was noticing that Scarlett Johansson has crooked bottom teeth.

Wow, 100% positive early reviews - after 19 so far - for Guardians of the Galaxy.

Guess who showed up at ComicCon this year. Don't expect any drop in McConaughey mania any time soon. :P

Kristin: Hmmm. No idea. I just click on it and it goes away, even if I don't click on any of the threads. Apr 26, 2013 7:05:34 GMT -5
narrows101: Thanks Kristin. When I click on it, it takes me to the list of threads with recent replies that I have bookmarked. Depending on what number is in "bookmarks" tells me how many of the threads have replies. For some reason that one no. 1 won't go away. Apr 26, 2013 19:05:26 GMT -5
Kristin: Have you tried just clicking on all the threads you have bookmarked? Maybe you just missed one? I'll find out if there's a way to clear the notifications. Apr 27, 2013 4:29:28 GMT -5
Kristin: Try going into your bookmarks, go to the bar atop the list of threads and on the right side, click on "select" and choose "all" and then click "action" and choose "mark all read" and see if that makes it go away b Apr 27, 2013 4:33:03 GMT -5
narrows101: Yep, tried all of that and it won't go away. Funny thing is, it happened once before and it just disappeared one day so maybe it will happen again at some point! Just annoying seeing it. Thanks for the suggestions. Apr 27, 2013 6:21:47 GMT -5
Wolvietat: The Habs Hugh? The Habs? *sigh* May 2, 2013 21:28:27 GMT -5
Kristin: I know! But then again, those tix were probably comped, so you go with the flow. May 3, 2013 14:03:35 GMT -5
narrows101: I just want you to know that I FINALLLY got rid of that "1" hovering over the "bookmark" word on the toolbar. I went into "profile" then "edit profile" and unchecked everything to see if it went away and it did. Then I checked everything one by one. Sept 19, 2013 20:35:27 GMT -5
narrows101: After "edit profile" and then "notifications" I unchecked everything and checked again. The culprit was "Forum" - "when a bookmark is update" - took that checkmark off and the "1" went away. Checked it again and it came back. So that was it. No idea why. Sept 19, 2013 20:37:35 GMT -5
ocycd: can anyone tell me why the photo I had for my avatar suddenly disappeared?? Sorry, I'm kind of a dunce when it comes to these things! Sept 21, 2013 15:14:33 GMT -5
narrows101: ocycd - I still see your avatar. Sept 22, 2013 9:24:14 GMT -5
Kristin: Ocycd - It's probably an issue on your end, with graphics not loading properly, because I can see your avatar too. Unless you can see everyone else's avatar and not yours, then I'll have to figure out why that's happening. Sept 22, 2013 20:37:44 GMT -5
Kristin: Pat - Awesome! It was bothering me that I couldn't figure that one out. Sept 22, 2013 20:38:07 GMT -5
ocycd: That is so weird cuz I can see everyone else's avatars but still not mine... and the same is true on my mac and my pc laptop... very strange. Maybe I'll try reloading it on my laptop next time I'm on it... thanks narrows101 and Kristin!! Sept 23, 2013 16:22:48 GMT -5
ocycd: My avatar is BACK! And I didn't do a thing... thank you magic virtual wizards!! Sept 27, 2013 15:01:45 GMT -5
24601: Kristin, what do you see below my avatar? Nov 19, 2013 22:53:12 GMT -5
nmb: :) Dec 12, 2013 18:42:47 GMT -5
24601: This is an absurd question. How does one post a new freestanding post within a thread? Using Reply button is all I know and more often than not becomes tedious, repetitive, bandwidth sucking reading. Feb 23, 2014 15:13:32 GMT -5
Kristin: You can't. You can only reply to threads or create a new thread. You can use the quick reply to just post something without responding to anyone in a thread, or quoting someone, but as far as just posting in a thread, you have to use the reply button. Mar 21, 2014 13:25:23 GMT -5
frances: The hair is one thing but I wish we had more opportunity to see that face without the beard. May 6, 2014 12:07:05 GMT -5
