This is a great idea. Eddie Izzard’s Dressed to Kill stand-up routine is hilarious (though profanity laced). Matching the bits with Lego stop-motion animation turns out to be really funny and inventive. These are two of the funnier bits (without profanity).
Cake or Death
If you can get past the profanity, the Death Star Cafeteria is also hilarious…
There’s also a bit he does about American vs. British spelling that’s really . . . → Read More: Tuesday TubeWatch: Lego Izzard – Cake or Death?
Ever since “Ikea” popped up on one of my Pandora stations months ago, it’s been one of my favorites.
Every time I hear or see words like “Ikea,” “Thor,” or “Norsemen” this song immediately pops to mind. It’s surprising how many times that happens given I live in the US nowhere near an Ikea.
It’s catchy, and it’s funny. (And Paul, if you don’t listen to this one, I will hunt you down.)

The Dark is Rising sequence
When the Dark comes rising, six shall turn it back; Three from the circle, three from the track; Wood, bronze, iron; water, fire, stone; Five will return, and one go alone.
Iron for the birthday, bronze carried long; Wood from the burning, stone out of song; Fire in the candle-ring, water from the thaw; Six Signs the circle, and the grail gone before.

Okay, supposedly everything is migrated.
If you don’t get notified of this post, let me know…
Hey… just a quick note to anyone following this blog in a feedreader or email that if you don’t get any more posts from me by Tuesday, you might want to check back and resubscribe. I just started the migration progress from Feedburner to Google, and THEN started seeing reports of people having problems with that.
I should have checked it out first.
If you see a test message from me later, you’re all set.
Okay… that was one moody episode of Battlestar Galactica. Fair warning. If you haven’t seen the first of the final 10 episodes, turn back now. There be major spoilers ahead.
I’m not quite sure what to say about that episode.
If the episode was designed to make us feel sort of aimless and disconcerted, mission accomplished. The scenes just kind of meandered. Lots of jumping from person to person, with mostly little bits . . . → Read More: The fifth Cylon – say what? (w/spoilers)
While I’m spending time in the BSG universe, here’s a clip from the prequel series, Caprica.
The series debuts next year. Apparently it will not take place in space much, if at all, which makes sense, given the title of the series is the name of the planet. Seems like it will revolve around the creation of the Cylons. I’m willing to give it a shot.

Battlestar Galactica is returning for the second half of its fourth and final season tonight (NOTE for those recording… the first new episode is extended and will go about 4 minutes over the hour). Just 10 episodes stand between us and the final fate of Humans and Cylons—even fewer than that before we find out the identity of the fifth Cylon. If you’ve forgotten what’s happened to this point (or for some crazy reason you’re . . . → Read More: Battlestar blitz – be prepared
Recently Gather Little by Little posted an article on “Deal of the day” sites, such as Woot.com and Yugster.com. These are sites that offer one product per day for a substantially reduced price. The merchandise, frequently reconditioned but at times new, is sold until their quantity runs out or 24 hours is up, whichever comes first.
I took a look at a few of the sites that GLBLGuy posted. Some I found useful, but most . . . → Read More: 4 sites to get free/cheap stuff – finding deals online
