My mom is Deep Thought. She produced me, after all. And I am now the answer the Life, the Universe, and Everything.

I guess that makes my dad a hyper-intelligent pan-dimensional being.

This sums up the switch from "SciFi" to "SyFy" (I say "Siffy" aka rhymes with "Sissy") nicely:

Also, click "previous" to see part 1 - "Here's why being associated with illiteracy, sissies, and possibly syphilis is actually more desirable..". Heh.

Not that there aren't some kick-ass shows on "Syfy" right now (Eureka, Warehouse 13) - but it's the new marketing stance I find...."sissy"...

Following suit with the lovely [livejournal.com profile] felisviolaceous, I decided to change my LJ name, from scrith to.... [livejournal.com profile] zenhedon. It's a name I came up with a while back, because I strive to be Zen in outlook, and well, I am a Hedonist. Plus of course the last 3 letters are apt :-)

I took the opportunity to revamp my LJ pics a little too, and upload the new one you see here (from a photo shoot with my sexy wife!)

Does anyone have Dr Who Series 2 (ie the first one with David Tennant) on DVD & would be willing to loan us disc 1 & maybe 2? PBS is showing series 2 right now and I'm recording it - but we missed the first few episodes. We don't want to watch it without starting 'at the beginning' - but if we don't start soon, the DVR's gonna fill up! We watched Series 1 straight through last year...now that TV series are drying up...we're jonesin'. Can anyone help a Who-addict out?

I read this on Slashdot and I thought it must be some sort of early April Fool's joke. Nope. It's right there on the front page at http://www.scifi.com - "Experience the brand evolution". The Sci Fi channel is changing it's name to "SyFy" - "to pull in a more 'mainstream' audience."

At least it will finally resolve the glaring incongruity of having Pro Wrestling on a Science Fiction TV channel.

The Slashdot article has more.

For those of you who don't have [livejournal.com profile] brandyeileen on your friends list....

You gotta watch it all the way through, no matter how cheesy. Worth it...sooo worth it! :-)

And how did your wife react to the news, sir?

Well....she ran to the front door naked, flung it open and screamed at the top of her lungs (and believe me, that's sayin' something), "YES WE DID!!!!!"

It was a sight to see, lemme tell ya....

My brother-in-law has been doing an awesome once-a-day blog for a while now - "I am jealous". [livejournal.com profile] thenakedredhead and I read it, but I realized just now - it deserves to be seen by more. He comes up with something intriguing, daily, and posts a link-as-picture as well as a short commentary (which are often quite profound).

The basic theme is - we are all jealous of something. You know, when you see some awesome idea, or site, or thing, and just *want* it, or want to have come up with it, etc. That's what he blogs about.

Find it here: http://iamjealous.wordpress.com

It's also syndicated on LJ at [livejournal.com profile] i_am_jealous

Seen this before, but never actually filled it out. Suddenly was intrigued to see the states I've been in marked. Some of them, I've lived in, some just visited. I left out ones I've only driven through or stopped in their airports...

or check out these Google Hacks.

Hmm. I guess I don't get north very often :-)

So, last night, [livejournal.com profile] thenakedredhead & I started watching BSG, part 2 of the season finale of Season 1. We were fully intending to go right into the season premiere of Season 2. Got the box out with Season 2 & had it ready.

But, we had neglected to check that we truly had all the discs for Season 2. While we had the cases for all the discs of Season 2....it turns out Disc 1 was not in its box. We discover this AFTER just finishing the season finale...and are of course jonesing for "more more more, now now NOW!".

A frantic search ensued, all over the house, to no avail. I remembered that before moving, I had opened the set & pulled out disc 1 to watch it on my new TV (so, jan 07 or so). I may well have left it in the DVD player. But since then....who knows? The DVD player is in a box somewhere. The stuff from the wall unit is in a box somewhere. Aieeeeeee!!! It may take weeks to find it. So....

Does anyone have Disc 1 of Season 2 of BSG that they could loan us two poor BSG addicts in mid-fix & jonesing hard??? Puhhleeeeezeee??? Prettyplease helpus helpus!!!!!

During lunch, for basically vague & uncertain reasons I decided to go to Albertson's. It was more of an intuition, like being drawn or guided to go there. I wandered about a bit, trying to figure out what it was I wanted to get there, why I was supposed to come, without any success. Finally decided to just leave, but stopped by the book section (one of the possible reasons) on my way out. And there it was, I saw what I was there for: The God Delusion, by Richard Dawkins. I hemmed & hawwed a bit, but decided, yep, it's a sign (with thoughts of Mike, the english gent we'd met on honeymoon in my head - "me I'm a Dawkins man meself"). And then had to smile at getting a book on atheism based on being "guided" to the store and seeing it as a "sign". Heh.

I just hope ol' Mike is doing ok back in the UK (unless he went back to the resort!) and that it *was* simple irony at work here, not some sort of cosmic-synchronistic-coincidence harbingering something bad happening, like (ahem. "god forbid") him dying. Let's not have that, shall we? God err Luck be w'ye, Mike!

Does anyone have the first episode of the new season of Eureka - "Phoenix Rising" on tape? I missed it :-( And I was soooo looking forward to it!!

I haven't posted much in a while, but I'd been reading LJ pretty regularly...until mid April. Then...we moved.

I now live in Pflugerville, in a wonderful huge new house with my wonderful darling [livejournal.com profile] thenakedredhead (who can finally BE naked, thanks to dark-enough curtains).

I've also been to PBF, CMA, and Edinburg, TX in the past couple weeks (the latter for work, a new facility, and much subsequent time-suckage at work, hence no LJ reading).

Tonite I rebelled against going to bed early (sowwy sweetie!) so I could scan LJ. Well, not so much rebelled as I was just wound-up from 2 late-nite trips to Walgreens, after a meeting with my parents about the wedding, and a failed attempt to replace the front porch light (wrong size bulb), and...and... so much to do for the new house. I haven't even finished moving all my stuff out of the old one! Much less unpacked most of the boxes that I *did* move over here. Or even set up my PC (I'm using the laptop for this..). Whew! So glad THIS weekend is (more or less) free. Last weekend was CMA. Weekend before was PBF. Weekend before was moving here. Weekend before was moving (ex-)housemate out. Etc.

Heroes!

iPhone is out... (Scroll down til you get to the iPhone part.)

Does Internet, Video, iTunes, 2-megapixel camera, and of course it's a phone. Has a neat feature where it knows when you rotate it from vertical to horizontal. Runs OSX. Uses Safari.

It doesn't have a keyboard...instead it can use the *screen* has a keyboard. Big, wide screen (size of the phone). 160dpi. Some fancy new finger-based touch interface, no stylus (yeah we'll see, but it sounded good)

As the editor on Slashdot said: "they're going to print money with this thing." I know *I* want one :-)

Not available til June though. And...the exclusive carrier is.... Cingular (that sucks, they should let you use it with T-Mobile as well, dammit).

While doing a little research to help out the Little One with her science project, I ran across this little gem:

http://uk.answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20061202142259AACq1hh

Excerpt:
If you drop a buttered piece of bread, it will fall on the floor butter-side down. If a cat is dropped from a window or other high and towering place, it will land on its feet.

But what if you attach a buttered piece of bread, butter-side up to a cat's back and toss them both out the window? Will the cat land on its feet? Or will the butter splat on the ground?

Even if you are too lazy to do the experiment yourself you should be able to deduce the obvious result. The laws of butterology demand that the butter must hit the ground, and the equally strict laws of feline aerodynamics demand that the cat can not smash its furry back. If the combined construct were to land, nature would have no way to resolve this paradox. Therefore it simply does not fall.
