Just a news-filled update today...

I've got to be honest, I'm lacking a lot of time which is needed to do the research and critical thinking required for original content today. Nothing bad, just really busy.

So, I'm gathered the most interesting things from my RSS Reader.

First and foremost, is SCIFI has ordered a third season for Eureka. All I've got to say to this is, "hooray!" Now all I need to do is get the first and second seasons on DVD so I can watch the ones that I missed.

Second, ABC is planning a SF show for Fall 2008 which the producers describe as a mixture of "House" and "X-Men." Not a lot of details on that, but it should make for an interesting thing. At least there is hope for more sci-fi after this crop of shows, and the potential for failure this season due to SF overload.

The third, and final, thing of interest that caught my eye in my RSS feed was an article from Website @ The End of the Universe suggesting we try foreign films if you're disgusted and tired of the cookie-cutter SF fare being produced by Hollywoood these days. I'm of two minds about that. I do see the tripe that Hollywood is producing, but Pan's Labyrinth (the last foreign film I watched) was just so violent and bloody, often unnecessarily so, that I'm hesitant about looking more closely at European films. That said, I still love my Anime (movies and TV Series) so who knows.

Well now that that's all out of the way, let me tell you about my little Jedi. He's 10 months old, and a happy cruiser who believes that everything exists solely for his amusement and or comfort. So, whenever he have something that he wants, say a bottle, or a cup, or a toy, or just us to be near enough to him to pick him up, he'll stretch out his hand, and make baby-babble, as he lifted one eyebrow.

I'm serious, he looks like Vader in the Cloud City scene of ESB. Except he's a baby, and doesn't have that whole black mask, and breathing problem going on.
