Random Notes...

This post is more than 2 years old.

I swear I'm not posting this just to get a May entry up...

I've started using my ipod a lot more recently and the more I use it - the more right it feels... by right I mean it seems to be the perfect hardware device. I noticed then when I gently rubbed my finger on it to crank up a song I was listening to. It reminds me of Tom Cruise waving his hands in the air to use his computer in "The Minority Report."

I've falled in love with a new band. If you get a chance, check out Out Hud. I read about them from another blog where they were described as a female New Order. To me, it sounds more like a cooler version of Lucsious Jackson, with maybe a bit of New Order thrown in. Be sure to listen to "How Long."

I've been warching the new Dr. Who series. Sorry, I mean my friend in England has. I haven't been bittorrenting them - I swear. Anyway - I'm really enjoying it. They seem to have captured the mood of the old series quite well, and the new Dr. Who is fun to watch (although I believe he will only be on for one season). The episode with the Dalek is quite cool. Is it odd that two of my favorite shows now come from England? I wonder if they will start up the Prisoner again!

[OK. Here I go outting myself as a total Doctor Who geek. Who knew?]

I, too, have a friend who has been watching the new series in the UK and describes them to me with what seems like frame-by-frame accuracy. ;-)

I love the new show and I think it stinks that Eccleston quit (http://www.bbc.co.uk/cult/n.... It's the role of a lifetime. Luckily, the tenth Doctor is on the way!

Christopher Eccleston didn't quit, he only ever wanted to do one series (supposedly to save himself being typcasted, allegedly) and the BBC broke its agreement not to reveal he planned to film just one series.
Read more here http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/.... The new Dr. Who is penned to be played by David Tennant from another BBC series Casanova (which was actually better than i thought it would be)

Also, how long does it take for you to get a frame-by-frame account from your friend? :o)
