Odds and Ends

+ If you haven't seen it yet, check out this exclusive scene from "Dollhouse." I'm "meh" all over again. I really wish I could get more amped up about this show. Must remember my Whedon loves always start out slow...

+ This makes me sad: Eight Signs That Apple Customers Are No Longer Special

+ io9 has a helpful list of sci-fi marathons to help us while away the holiday hours. Looks like Friday's the day I finally figure out what all the "Highlander" fuss was about...like ten years ago. It's never too late, though, right?

+ Three words: Extreme Poodle Grooming. Oh my God, I don't think I've laughed this hard in days. You have to check it out just for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Poodle. I'll give you a sampling with the truly messed-up camel dog:



It's just so, so wrong in so many ways...but still I laugh and laugh.

And thus, with visions of camel-shaped dogs still fresh in our minds, I bid you farewell for two days while I make with the Christmas festivities. Since it is technically a birthday celebration, I'm hoping there'll be cake! Happy Hanukkah and Merry Christmas to everyone! I hope your holiday is peaceful, relaxing and filled with good friends and good cheer!

Just a quick thank you for sharing nerdy goodness with us this year! I am so glad that I found this blog--how else would I hear about Extreme Poodle Grooming?!? (As well as all my fave geek stuff. :) )

Just ... THANKS!

Wishing you Happy Holidays. Am so glad I found this Blog!

Re. Highlander - I've no clue either, and since I'm in the UK, and nowhere near the marathon, I shall have to remain ignorant even longer!

That Wired article is so dumb. why do they have to play it like a bad thing that good computers are good, apple is a smart company, and they're gaining marketshare? better than the reverse, right?

As a Mac user, I'm all for feeling less special, if it means that Apple has to give up on some of their snobbier aspects... like how hard they make it for their customers to customize products or get them fixed without having to stand in line for three hours at a Mac store. Really, I love the OS, but some of the company's policies are really starting to annoy me.

Oh, those poor dogs!

(But, um, I would like you to know that I didn't become a Mac user to join a super snobby sect and "be special"... they were what my college used. >_>)

I miss Buffy, and seeing Faith reminded me of that. Couldn't get into either Angel or Firefly, so I hope I can get into this one.
