4 fish

first fish: there's something terribly final about the last toasted marshmallows of the summer.

second fish: why are all the damn-the-spam word verification thingies horribly typer un-friendly?
does that make sense?

third fish: a couple weeks ago, i caught an old-as-i-am episode of Reading Rainbow, & wondered if they'd ever thought of updating/redoing it. & lo, this afternoon's meanderings proved that they have. it was all hi-fi & whatnot, with Lavar Burton going all CGI & crazy maps & poetry & stuff. & a bit of propoganda to boot.

fourth fish: i love Eddie Izzard. i really do. i watched Definite Article this weekend & reminded myself of that fact. (please note: DVD link not region 1, e.g. if you live in the US don't buy it.)

eddie izzard.

This pic rocks!

Im writing an essay about how the wicked step mother in the old fairy tales actually is a parable for The "Mother Church".

If thats so, and the Goddess is real, then I am quite sure that Eddie has captured her current vibe.

I agree that some of the word verification things are a bit ridiculous. As far as Eddie - several of my coworkers love him but I'm slow to catch on and have no idea who he is. Looks pretty good in the gown, though.

livewire: you must investigate. i will send eddie things to wheresoever you are if necessary.

ms bell: there's not much churchlike about eddie izzard, except for the mockery, but if he's the Mother Goddess, i'm in.

marshmallows, like summer, always end too soon. and if i could come up with the word verification thingies, i'd come up with actual words, funny words that do not bear contemplating. like, erm, lemonsnicketty?

Ooh, Eddie Izzard. Happy.
As for the DVD, you can make your DVD player region-free.

Region-ified dvds are evil. Pure and simple. Luckily most players sold here now are region-free, but what happens when the *new and improved* technology replaces dvds and we have to update all our collections all over again.

As for Eddie Izzard, genius. But I haven't seen enough yet.

Oh Fence, don't get me started on that!!!

I would occasionally catch episodes of Reading Rainbow when my daughter was growing up and I always thought it was a well done show and a great idea. Anything that encourages reading among children is a plus in my book.

HAH! I used to watch reading rainbow all the time when I was a kid. Looking back on it, I sometimes find Lavar Burton to be a bit creepy, and perhaps not the type of person I'd leave my child alone with (if I had a child, that is). Maybe I'm wrong, but he's definitely a weird dude.

sock: er, best buy i think. i would buy them right from the hands of eddie izzard himself, though, if he wasn't all the way over there in England.

transcience: exactly why they should have a mischievous little pixie in the server coming up with that sort of thing.

anne: always makes me happy too. though i wish i had Dressed to Kill. or had seen his new one.

fence: the DVD player's an old one, & it isn't even mine. so for a time i must accept certain regional boundaries graciously.

carl v: i loved Reading Rainbow. i was a nerd through & through, from day one, i think.

skrambled: Lavar Burton is definitely a strange one, even without the Star Trek eye-thingie overtones. the one i caught was a new one, & he's still a little weird. i guess you have to be to do a kids show.

" there's something terribly final about the last toasted marshmallows of the summer."

that's the first line of something.

maybe not something that's any good, but it's a good first line all the same.

really? it seems melodramatic to me. i mean, i was being melodramatic on purpose. sort of.

it's almost Victorian, if there were anything at all Victorian about marshmallows.

Any DVD player now is region 0... even the $50 ones. I LOVE Eddie Izzard!!! We saw him at the Merriam (last November?)... time... horrible thing. Anyway, his show absolutely ruled. If you get an opportunity GO - no matter how much it costs.

ooh, saw him live? he's one of very few stand-up comedians that i'd actually go see eagerly.

what show did you see? was it Sexy (or is it Sexie?) or a new one?
