Hands up who likes me?

First, isn't that the guy from Drop Dead Fred and second, what television show is this from?

Update: Thank you to STUDIODYNAMO, Moose and Anonymous for letting me know the show is The Young Ones... and it's currently in my Netflix queue.

Book Review: Gulliver's Fugitives by Keith Sharee (Star Trek: The Next Generation #11)


Gulliver's Fugitives by Keith Sharee
Rating: 1/5

I read two other books while reading this book - that should give you an idea of how much of my attention and interest it captured.

The Enterprise encounters the planet of Rampart occupied by a group of humans who wished to leave Earth and create a new world full of fact. These people did not see the point in fiction, yes, fiction. They consider anything fiction, from literature, art, myths, imagination, exploration, etc. illegal – basically if you have to use your imagination you are considered sick with a disease called Allpox. So when the Enterprise stumbles across this planet looking for the lost ship the U.S.S. Huxley the Rampartians (I guess I can call them that) consider all of the Enterprise "sick" because they speak of nothing of fiction – the very idea that aliens exist is fiction and therefore they must “fix” or destroy the Enterprise and all its inhabitants.

Now that little summary may seem interesting, which I would have to agree, but the sad fact was that this author did a horrible job telling a plausible or interesting story. He even had trouble with writing the canon characters, which caused me to wonder if he even watched the television show. And the worst part for me is that he spent so much time with Troi and her having “hallucinations” of a connection with an alien force (which had nothing to do with nothing) and being a “chick”; as in she could never defend herself or have capability to exert any type of leadership. Granted the TV series does this as well, but I don’t like it there either.

The moment you realize you...


Look, I'm an adult and I can make my own life choices... whatever, don't judge me.

Live Action Daria Movie


Did you know they are making a live action movie of the television show Daria? No, well they are. And Aubrey Plaza will be Daria. You probably know Aubrey from such films and TV shows as, Funny People, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, and Parks and Recreation. Can you say perfect casting? Don't believe me? Just jump on YouTube and search for videos... then you will see.

Now ya know!

Poor, sad Moe

I'm just gonna die lonely and ugly, and dead.

How did I miss the 2011 Tony Awards?

Neil Patrick Harris (NPH to the real fans) had a wonderful opening number.

And this bit with Hugh Jackman was lovely.

Alexis Carrington - the baddest bitch in a hat


Even if you never watched an episode of  Dynasty, I'm sure you're familiar with the fabulous Alexis, played by Joan Collins. Alexis was a bitch, and I mean that in all the fabulous and nasty connotations your mind can imagine.

I love Wikipedia's explanation of her character,
Alexis' schemes to destroy ex-husband Blake, undermine his marriage to angelic Krystle, and control her children drive much of the action over the series' run. Passionate yet vengeful, Alexis loves her children fiercely and will do anything to protect them, but she often ignores their own needs and desires in place of what she thinks is best. Often seen smoking her signature black Nat Sherman cigarillos, Alexis rises and falls again and again, continually stirring up trouble for all around her.

But her signature was her hats and fierce 1980s make up. It's all about the eyes...

If you can pronounce correctly every word in this poem...

The internet told me, “If you can pronounce correctly every word in this poem, you will be speaking English better than 90% of the native English speakers in the world.

I read it out loud and I am not ashamed to say I stumbled a couple times, but even if that stat above isn't true, it's a pretty clever poem.

Dearest creature in creation,
Study English pronunciation.
I will teach you in my verse
Sounds like corpse, corps, horse, and worse.
I will keep you, Suzy, busy,
Make your head with heat grow dizzy.
Tear in eye, your dress will tear.
So shall I! Oh hear my prayer.
Just compare heart, beard, and heard,
Dies and diet, lord and word,
Sword and sward, retain and Britain.
(Mind the latter, how it’s written.)
Now I surely will not plague you
With such words as plaque and ague.
But be careful how you speak:
Say break and steak, but bleak and streak;
Cloven, oven, how and low,
Script, receipt, show, poem, and toe.
Hear me say, devoid of trickery,
Daughter, laughter, and Terpsichore,
Typhoid, measles, topsails, aisles,
Exiles, similes, and reviles;
Scholar, vicar, and cigar,
Solar, mica, war and far;
One, anemone, Balmoral,
Kitchen, lichen, laundry, laurel;
Gertrude, German, wind and mind,
Scene, Melpomene, mankind.
Billet does not rhyme with ballet,
Bouquet, wallet, mallet, chalet.
Blood and flood are not like food,
Nor is mould like should and would.
Viscous, viscount, load and broad,
Toward, to forward, to reward.
And your pronunciation’s OK
When you correctly say croquet,
Rounded, wounded, grieve and sieve,
Friend and fiend, alive and live.
Ivy, privy, famous; clamour
And enamour rhyme with hammer.
River, rival, tomb, bomb, comb,
Doll and roll and some and home.
Stranger does not rhyme with anger,
Neither does devour with clangour.
Souls but foul, haunt but aunt,
Font, front, wont, want, grand, and grant,
Shoes, goes, does. Now first say finger,
And then singer, ginger, linger,
Real, zeal, mauve, gauze, gouge and gauge,
Marriage, foliage, mirage, and age.
Query does not rhyme with very,
Nor does fury sound like bury.
Dost, lost, post and doth, cloth, loth.
Job, nob, bosom, transom, oath.
Though the differences seem little,
We say actual but victual.
Refer does not rhyme with deafer.
Foeffer does, and zephyr, heifer.
Mint, pint, senate and sedate;
Dull, bull, and George ate late.
Scenic, Arabic, Pacific,
Science, conscience, scientific.
Liberty, library, heave and heaven,
Rachel, ache, moustache, eleven.
We say hallowed, but allowed,
People, leopard, towed, but vowed.
Mark the differences, moreover,
Between mover, cover, clover;
Leeches, breeches, wise, precise,
Chalice, but police and lice;
Camel, constable, unstable,
Principle, disciple, label.
Petal, panel, and canal,
Wait, surprise, plait, promise, pal.
Worm and storm, chaise, chaos, chair,
Senator, spectator, mayor.
Tour, but our and succour, four.
Gas, alas, and Arkansas.
Sea, idea, Korea, area,
Psalm, Maria, but malaria.
Youth, south, southern, cleanse and clean.
Doctrine, turpentine, marine.
Compare alien with Italian,
Dandelion and battalion.
Sally with ally, yea, ye,
Eye, I, ay, aye, whey, and key.
Say aver, but ever, fever,
Neither, leisure, skein, deceiver.
Heron, granary, canary.
Crevice and device and aerie.
Face, but preface, not efface.
Phlegm, phlegmatic, ass, glass, bass.
Large, but target, gin, give, verging,
Ought, out, joust and scour, scourging.
Ear, but earn and wear and tear
Do not rhyme with here but ere.
Seven is right, but so is even,
Hyphen, roughen, nephew Stephen,
Monkey, donkey, Turk and jerk,
Ask, grasp, wasp, and cork and work.
Pronunciation (think of Psyche!)
Is a paling stout and spikey?
Won’t it make you lose your wits,
Writing groats and saying grits?
It’s a dark abyss or tunnel:
Strewn with stones, stowed, solace, gunwale,
Islington and Isle of Wight,
Housewife, verdict and indict.
Finally, which rhymes with enough,
Though, through, plough, or dough, or cough?
Hiccough has the sound of cup.
My advice is to give up!!!

Book Review: The Desire for Dearborne by V.B. Kildaire


The Desire for Dearborne by V.B. Kildaire
Rating: 4/5

Perpetually sick and bookish Leander Mayfield travels to London to become the new Earl of Dearborne. London is a bit much for this poor American farmer who prefers to spend his time reading about King Arthur. Now meet Julien Sutcliffe, the Earl of Blackstone, whose reputation preceeds him for liking "the company of men." Julien is immediately drawn to Leander and the romance begins... but wait! There is a plot afoot to steal the Earldom from Leander!

Overall this was quite an enjoyable read. At times I forgot I was reading a "published" book because the story does have a fanfiction feel to it (but that might be because I've read a lot of slash fanfiction). I have to admit I did get a little annoyed at how weak and innocent Leander is portrayed but the quick moving story made up for it. I'm looking forward to reading more stories from this author.

It buttons on the right side!


I saw this photo (above) and chuckled, then I goggled and found this.

Oh yeah, that's a screen capture from the film Paris is Burning.

That is all.
