Sci Fi Friday

More Sci Fi Friday this evening with another barrage of Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis, and Battlestar Galactica. The one change from last Friday is that (hopefully) there will not be another power outage, planned or otherwise.

Just a snippet of why I talk about this all the time (or most of the time): for the last few years, mostly since I've been in school, I've gotten more and more irritated with broadcast (and some cable) programming.

For the most part, I've usually got too much happening - school homework, family, or being sick - to waste time watching the same mindless crap on the boob tube.

Bearing this in mind is why I've pretty much limited myself to watching stuff on the Sci Fi Channel on Friday evenings - it's my 'weekly reward'.

Oh sure I might watching some psuedo-documentaries on Discovery Channel or the History Channel or maybe even The Military Channel (which I just recently discovered), but for the most part I watch stuff on Friday evenings with the occasional smattering of FoxNews in the morning ifi my daughter doesn't groan too loudly (this from a kid that watches multiple hours of the lame Hanna Barbara cartoons from the late-60s/early-70s on Boomerang).

So since today is Friday, it's time for me to go 'off-line' and indulge my inner geek in some juicy science fiction.

CodePunk Caught Red Handed

Here's another aspect of CodePink that clearly shows that they're not 'supporting the troops' one iota:

Heath Ledger angry at ban

HOT Oscar tip Heath Ledger yesterday compared US bans on his gay cowboy film to racism.

Ledger said he was not surprised a Utah cinema had banned Brokeback Mountain, which depicts a lifelong love affair between two Montana cowboys.

"I heard a while ago that West Virginia was going to ban it. But that's a state that was lynching people only 25 years ago, so that's to be expected," Ledger said.

"Personally, I don't think the movie is (controversial) but I think maybe the Mormons in Utah do. I think it's hilarious and very immature of a society.

Heath, Heath, Heath....just because a movie is made doesn't mean that all theaters are obligated to run the movie. If the theater owners and/or operators don't want to run yours or anyone else's movie, then that's that; this isn't a communist state where the state dictates what is to be shown and what is deemed 'offensive'.

Heath, you've got the 'chops' for acting - stick to it instead of sitting on a fence post crowing about what is 'racism' and what isn't. (BTW, racism is not liking a person of a specific creed or ethnic group whereas bigotry is probably the word/label you were looking for...you dumb bunny. )

[/Daffy Duck]

Do I have a problem personally with 'Brokeback Mountain'? I dunno....hadn't really planned on seeing this movie. Maybe when it comes out on DVD, but that too is doubtful. But if we're to follow Mr. Ledger's mind-set, then I'm under obligation to watch it under penalty of being called a racist bigot.

And if that's the worst that happens to me in-the-near future, then I'd be lucky.

Making Demands, Are We?

Exsqueeze me!?

Mexico Demands U.S. Allow More Immigration

Diplomats from Mexico and Central America on Monday demanded guest worker programs and the legalization of undocumented migrants in the United States, while criticizing a U.S. proposal for tougher border enforcement.

Meeting in Mexico's capital, the regional officials pledged to do more to fight migrant trafficking, but indirectly condemned a U.S. bill that would make illegal entry a felony and extend border walls.

Migrants, regardless of their migratory status, should not be treated like criminals," they said.

And I demand more refried beans with my Three-Rolled Taco entree.

It's so nice/funny to see nations demand certain concessions from the United States when they're....well, in NO position to be making demands. It's sort of like your spoiled nephew demanding more chocolate pudding or else he'll hold his breath....

Smash vs. Bob Filner

Once again, I'm not feeling so hot this morning - damn migraine & nausea are back.

But I thought I'd link to something that I was witness to yesterday: Citizen Smash versus Congressman Bob Filner.

(Audio mp3 of the exchange here)

And here a first-person witness that really puts it all into perspective and just exactly how the crowd in that church were quasi-ill to realize that someone would dare ask a serious question.

Good stuff - all around.

More later from my perspective if I'm feeling better....
