I haven't bothered naming most of my 21 birds because, frankly, I may have to sell a bunch of them; plus I can't quite tell a lot of the cockatiels apart, lol.  But, I'm in love with my canaries and have decided to name them.  I named the girl Moe after the Three Stooges character because she has this charming little mop of hair atop her little birdie head.  And I've decided to name the boy ZED after my darling [profile] zed_pm in honor of a generous gift she sent me and because it just seems to fit him. *BIG HUGS TO MY CHRISSY*

Piccy time!!!

Okay, now for some TV stuff!! 

Sarah Connor Chronicles continues to kick ass and take names. I LOVE this show. It's so multilayered and thought-provoking - verging on confusing at times.  But with the exception of that episode where Charlie's wife bit the big one, I've really enjoyed each episode this season.  I especially like the care taken with the characters (and Derek's hot tattooed bod).  The plot and flashy action scenes compliment the characters, not the other way around, which is how it should be in my ever-so-humble opinion.  Anybody want the mp3 of the Sampson and Delilah song that played in the season opener?  Here, have it. :-)

Who's watching Merlin?  I'm really enjoying it.  The latest episode - #12 - was my favorite.  Without giving anything away in case you haven't seen it, it's focused on Morgana.  I think Morgana is my favorite character.  Arthur is okay, too.  But everyone else is rather ... one dimensional.  Even Merlin.  Anyhow, I love that Morgana seems to be flirting with darkness ... I can upload these in Ipod (m4a) format if anyone wants me to.  Just let me know. What I really like about the show is the way that it takes the same old myths we've seen a gajillion times and twists them just enough to make them fresh and interesting. 

Also, I watched the first two episodes of Leverage.  I loved the pilot.  It was smart and fun and I found myself liking all the characters (and REALLY liking Christian Kane's character) with the possible exception of Timothy Hutton, who is okay but rather droll, I suppose.  Anyhow, I found episode 2 to be rather, um, how shall I say this nicely?  Dumb.  My hubby watched it with me (he hadn't seen the pilot) and echoed my opinion although the terms he used to describe it were something along the lines of "wretched and stupid."  Anyhow, I'm definitely going to watch more of it, not in the least because next episode is supposed to focus on delicious Mr. Kane's character.

Apparently, the slashtastic Crusoe has been cancelled, although there are still six new episodes yet to air.  Sigh.  Oh, well.  Hopefully we'll see more of Philip Winchester.  He's quite yummy.

After episode 3 of Fringe, I declared it too stupid to bear, but I've started watching it again.  I watch it at the gym on my Zune, and find that while the gore sometimes causes me to make horrified faces, I nevertheless enjoy it enough to do 48 minutes on the elliptical machine with it as diversion.  I also have most of these in iPod format if anyone wants me to upload them.

I've still got sadiane's recommended episodes of Due South on the Zune, waiting to be watched, and a bunch of episodes of the UK Life on Mars.  I've watched the first 3 eps of Life on Mars.  It's okay, but I sometimes find it hard to understand due to the accents, I suppose. 

I haven't watched this much TV in years.  It's fun!! :-)

Okay, after being convinced by all of the gloomy predictions about my beloved SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES being cancelled before it finishes its 2nd season, there's this great news:

Fox picks up 'Terminator' for full season

I can has Nekkid!Derek nao???

Supernatural

Spoilers for ep 4.03 )

Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles

Damn, I love this show! I love how well written, well directed and well acted it is. I love the pacing, the touch of religion, the teenage angst, the motherly love, the ass kicking, CAMERON (my one and only lesbian crush), and DEREK (slobber slobber nekkid in the shower with tattoos). Sarah's pretty cool, too.

I heard rumors that the show is close to being cancelled.  NO NO NO NO!!!  It doesn't seem to have a strong fan base, though.  At least, judging from SCC's presence at ComicCon and lack of comms on LJ.  There are a few, but nothing like SPN.

Sanctuary

I'm going to watch this tonight because I've heard good buzz about it and I like Amanda Tapping.  But am I the only one that thinks it looks like a rip off of Torchwood?

Breaking Bad

This is an original show in AMC about a high school chemistry teacher diagnosed with lung cancer.  In order to provide for his family, he hooks up with a drug dealing ex-student to use his chemical knowledge to cook up meth.  Hubby talked me into watching this, since he's a Chemical Engineer and the mere sight of periodic tables makes him froth at the mouth.  Anyhow, I've only seen 2 eps (of an 8 ep season, I think) and it's really good.  Kind of a dark comedy.  It's by Vince Gillian, of X-Files fame. 



twasadark: (Sea)
So, you may be wondering ...WTF is up with this twasadark broad?  Does she even HAVE a life or does she spend 23 hours a day recording podfics???  The short answer:  That's correct.  LOL.  The long answer is that I love love love listening to podfics so I figure that by recording them I have a bunch to listen to myself and hopefully will spread the gospel of podfics and inspire others to try their hands at them as well.  I genuinely LIKE doing them, as well.  And I'm getting quite a bit faster at them these days.

Then there is the other reason that I do so many of them, and spend so much time on fandom in general.  It basically keeps me sane.  RL has its share of issues for me and losing myself in fiction and TV has always been one of my main methods of dealing with all the trauma. Plus, my daughter is all grown up and at college now so I have a lot more time.  Time that probably should be spent cleaning the house.  But hey?  That's not nearly as rewarding!! 

I do have other interests.  I have a hubby, 2 dogs who I love to take out on hikes, and a continuous yearning for travel.  In fact, one of the reasons I've been recording so much lately is that Bran and I (daughter) are going on what I hope to be an AMAZING trip this weekend.  Four days near Bishop, CA where we'll be on horseback following wild mustangs and camping out.  I love to camp, and the opportunity to see mustangs in the wild??  We're both in heaven.  Although we'll probably be as sore as hell. 

And now ... two more Sarah Connor Chronicles podfics

twasadark: (amplificathon)
Um.  I'm off work for two weeks.  Can you tell how I've been spending my time??  LOL.  Although I did take the dogs for a hike today and we got RATTLED at by a frickin' RATTLESNAKE.  Eeeek! 

Anyhoo.  Here you go ...
