I saw a taekwondo facility named "Koreana."

Yesterday, I had snow tires put on my car. When the tireman pulled the valves the air made a nasty high pitched screaming whistle. I immediately checked for shadows.

Please-please-please make an audio recording, next time.


I finally saw "The Dark Knight Rises", and it started out with Firefly brainflashovers ("barn swallow"), then Bane said:

Just watching Animal House tonight and couldn't help but think "So this is how Londo and Vir met".

The rooms of AA

Truthfully, hearing people share about their journey through sobriety and continuing with my own one, quites from Babylon 5, especially some of Delenn's mor spiritual ones, often help me on tough days.

It could happen...

Refa: [to Londo] Let it go. War's over, man. Mordon dropped the big one.
Londo: What? Over? Did you say "over"? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Minbari bombed Regesh-3? Hell no!
Durano: [to Vir] Minbari?
Vir: Forget it, he's rolling.
Londo: And it ain't over now. 'Cause when the goin' gets tough...
[thinks hard of something to say]
Londo: The tough get goin'! Who's with me? Let's go!

Congratulations on your sobriety, some of the coolest people I know are sober...not saying that I've ever met JMS however.

Dr. Fusa Miyake recently reported signs of the Earth being struck by a beam of high energy radiation found in ancient cedar trees.

Theories of solar flares, or a super nova, even a 'red crucifix' seen in the skies have been ruled out.

Only one obvious answer... Shadow Battlecrab!

Skimming the headline today, I did a double take, thought it read "Not the One".

I can hear Zathras now explaining about three threes.

Just saw a headline posted:

EA CEO To Step Down

Couldn't figure out why I'd never known that the Earth Alliance *had* a CEO!

Watching 'Time Bandits' today.
As our pint-sized hero steps through the wrong portal, he finds himself in ancient Greece witnessing two warriors battling alone on an open plain.

At the point the victor (Sean Connery) removes his Helmet... our hero exclaims "Your King Agamemnon!"

Star Trek: Breen: Alien Race
Babylon 5: Breen: Narn's answer to swedish meatballs

Malachi is the last book in the Old Testament. IN Babylon 5, the prime minister to Centauri Prime (before he was killed by Lord Reefa) was Malachi. I find that amusing.

Probably insignificant, though, as I believe that, as with the emperor himself, they simply used the actor's name ...

Emperor Turhan, played by Turhan Bey
Prime Minister Malachi, played by Malachi Throne
