somebody pointed me to some great "shred" videos. A lot of them are over-the-top rock videos, which are, like, whatever. it's so obvious, generally. but, Itzhak Perlman playing sloppily and out of tune? CHECK PLEASE.
So painful. I've mentioned elsewhere, I imagine this is what singing with me can be like.
I've also been reading a little bit about Sovereign Citizens. they're crazy nutters who believe incanting the right magic legal spells will free you from being under US law and make you essentially your own sovereign nation or something. And that, gasp, if they use a gold fringe on the flag in the court, they're a military or admiralty court instead of, like, a "common law" court or whatever the term is they want to be able to use. While (in my non-lawyer opinion) law is often about having the right magic words in the right place at the right time, their magic spells, unfortunately, not only don't work, but are completely frivolous. unfortunately, the people who go in for this stuff are often of the sort to lack the proper cognitive capacity to understand this and have strong reasons for wanting it to be true. so people are able to sell them this crap.
I've also spent some time watching Dr. Who. We not only watched the special when it came out, we watched the "Five Doctors" thing with Davison after - it was great and 100% worth the half hour and I believe it's still on the web - and we also went to a theater on Monday to see it in theaters in 3D.
i think they might be winding the series down. they have enumerated the doctors up to the limit, they have run up to his final resting place, and they have indicated what he has "always been going toward" - HOME. a big final mission, eh?
so Family Guy, which I don't really watch, killed off Brian. yikes. i watched it because, you know, brian.
