Things that make you think of B5 unexpectedly
 
With this crowd, I'm pretty sure (at least I'm really hoping!) that I won't be the only one who sees something that reminds them of B5 - often by mistake. Just ran across this item on Ebay:

Quote:

Oregon Scientific Gaiam Zone Trainer Heart Rate Monitor Touch Watch - Purple
Emphasis mine. I automatically read that as 'Gaim' and the 'purple' part was just a bonus.

Anybody else have this happen?

A street near one of the St. Charles County, Missouri libraries is named Shadow Lane. I always think of Babylon 5 when driving near that library. ;)

I used to pass by a bar called The White Star.

I just looked at the Google map for the subdivision. Not only is there a Shadow Lane, but Shadowcreek Drive and Shadowridge Court.

I dispute that it is ever a mistake to think about B5.

:cool:

I think I will be staying out of that part of Missouri.

I concur.

Also, I made Breen for dinner.

+1 :)

Jan, this is eerie, because I had basically checked in to get ComicCon updates (thanks!) and to (maybe) start a similar thread, after having one of these pleasant experiences. :)



A few days ago, I spotted a new Iowa "specialty" license plate...

That's "Ducks Unlimited" for you birding muggles. ;)

I signed up for the Monterey Bay Aquarium newsletter when I visited there in June 2011. When I received their latest newsletter they had the abbreviation MBARI, which I initially read as Minbari. MBARI actually stands for Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute.

That's just what they want you to believe. :)

Humor is...
 
Every now and then I hear someone say in general that "Humor is such a subjective thing..."

I never need a reason or a prompt to think about B5. It always seems to be at the back of my mind. :)

Yesterday, I spoke to a Mr. Spoo. And I am not making that up.

This one isn't exactly a 'mistake', just kind of cool.

I've got a B5 micro-machine hanging from my rear view mirror. While waiting for a light on the way home this afternoon, the man in the car next to me pointed to it and let me know he was a big fan, too. We exchanged smiles and the light changed.

It was a fun moment.

I dont think it's a mistake to think about Babylon 5, but...

There are several songs that make me think of B5, most especially Rocket Man by Elton John. That song makes me think of Garabaldi going to Mars stating how he swore he would never go back. Plus the overall tone of the lyrics about how something that seems really futuristic and exciting can become boring and tediuos when you're doing it.

I think that's something B5 captured so well.



Flaming Telepaths and Veteran of the Psychic Wars by Blue Oyster Cult do, too, for somewhat obvious reasons.
