Good myth.

Sometimes it's early in the morning and you're awake and drinking your instant coffee and staring at the television and the only thing you can say to yourself is, "Okay, I've woken up early, and now I've got all this extra time and I'm -- watching Extra and Inside Edition and the Tyra Banks show? Clearly this is a beneficial use of my time."

So, the last episode of BSG was -- it was a thing that's got me thinking very hard and I will make a post on it (and don't any of you think I've forgotten my plan to someday make a post called 'Know Your Bears', because boy, am I ever going to do that -- it could save lives), but right now I want you all to link me to the smart things other people have said about that episode because I'm sure someone far more intelligent/eloquent than I has interesting things to say and I'd love to read it.

Also, get thee all hence and read hackthis' and rageprufrock's Kitchen Confidential stories which are, respectively Five Times Jack and Steven Never...Okay, That's a Lie and The Queen of England which are both wonderful and funny and completely capture the as the French say "I don't know what" of the show and should win awards for really great titles to boot.

(no subject)

1. I am so tired I can barely recognize the alphabet.
2. I have just come home from my first day at my new job.
3. I have found that the way to peace lies through watching obscene amounts of America's Next Top Model.
4. I have decided that Joss Whedon's theme song has to be Something to Believe in by Poison. Buffy, Angel, Serenity/Firefly -- they all tie into it. No, really. Thinking about it. Here, let me give you the lyrics:

Will I see him on the tv
Preachin’ ’bout the promised land
He tells me to believe in jesus
And steals the money from my hand

Some say he was a good man
But lord I think he sinned, yeah

Twenty-two years of mental tears
Cries a suicidal vietnam vet
Who fought a losing war on a foreign shore
To find his country didn’t want him back

Their bullets took his best friend in saigon
Our lawyers took his wife and kids, no regrets
In a time I don’t remember
In a war he can’t forget

He cried forgive me for what I’ve done there
Cause I never meant the things I did

And give me something to believe in
If there’s a lord above
And give me something to believe in
Oh, lord arise

My best friend died a lonely man
In some palm springs hotel room
I got the call last christmas eve
And they told me the news

I tried all night not to break down and cry
As the tears rolled down my face
I felt so cold and empty
Like a lost soul out of place

And the mirror, mirror on the wall
Sees my smile it fades again


Sometimes I wish to God I didn’t know now
The things I didn’t know then
Road you gotta take me home


I drive by the homeless sleeping on a cold dark street
Like bodies in an open grave
Underneath the broken old neon sign
That used to read jesus saves

A mile away live the rich folks
And I see how they’re living it up
While the poor they eat from hand to mouth
The rich is drinkin’ from a golden cup

And it just makes me wonder
Why so many lose, so few win


You take the high road
And I’ll take the low road

Sometimes I wish to God I didn’t know now
The things I didn’t know then

And give me something to believe in</i>

Laugh all you want. But then -- then think about it.
