Well, not here here yet, but!  The Starman TV series is out on DVD!  

*insert many undignified noises here* 

Amazon has it, apparently under print on demand.  Not ideal, but since the only versions I've seen are old VCR recordings put up on YouTube in pieces (and all honor to the person who did so), I'll take it. 

I'm not sure this show ever even made it into reruns, but it was a mostly worthy successor to the original film--Robert Hays is a genius with the role--and is one of my 2.5 exceptions to my "you can't put an entirely different actor in the same role and expect me to believe it's the same person, you twit" rule (one of the several reasons I don't watch any of the Stargate series despite adoring the film.  Bantha!).  I recommend it highly, though it does reek of the '80s.  And the DVDs should be in my hot little hands tomorrow.  

First Max Headroom, now this.  If they'd put out The Wizard, I could die happy.

Let me just state that Steve Abshire is as smoothly amazing as ever, and that Paul Langosch has some very funny stories and tells them well.  And the two of them together are simply magic. 

Oh, and the food was great too!  :P

--This morning, while trying to catch a weather forecast, I saw someone I've known for more or less thirty-one years in a  TV commercial.  XD  Delight is only one of an array of emotions.

If you like octopi, you have to watch this; it won't take you long.  Snabbled from [livejournal.com profile] coffeeem.

Okay, the haiku are mine--she challenged me yesterday--but she illustrated them. Aren't they marvelous? :D Thank you, dearest! 














Plus the whole haiku idea is fun. Try some of your own.

I was out in the misty air today, admiring cherry blossoms (but not where you think) and paused to look more closely at the moss and lichen on a tree trunk. The moss was--what do you call it when it's on the point of blooming? Because if I recall aright, moss technically doesn't have flowers. Anyway, I took off my glasses for a very close look; age is actually improving my eyesight to a tiny degree.

And slowly, I realized two things. One, the tree's bark was purple. Not vivid, but a true purple, and I would have put it down to the quality of the light and the dampness on the bark, but for one other thing.

There were bugs in the moss. Tiny, tiny wormlike creatures less than a centimeter long, maybe half a centimeter--they looked like infinitesimal caterpillars rippling along, except I think they only had six legs. And they were exactly the same shade as the bark. I kept losing sight of them because they were so small, and such a perfect match. And, I think, they had silver eyes--I caught glimpses of silver spots at one end, but usually they kept their heads down.

The tree, the bark, the moss and lichen, the bugs--it's been a long time since I saw something so beautiful.

In other, possibly more interesting news, it looks like this Saturday is World Pillow Fight Day. Anybody going?

Gerald McCullouch is apparently either courageous or crazy.  Or possibly both.  This is terrific!  I had no idea he boxed. 

Bobby liiiiives!

Look what I got in the mail!!





clockwork locket  

It's a BPAL clockwork lavaliere, or scent locket. One adds perfume oil to something absorbent and stores it within the locket. A Halloween gift from [livejournal.com profile] cincoflex! It's heavy and gorgeous and I'm absolutely boggled. Thank you so much, dearest!

And I smell delicious. :D
