Television and Music news


Just a couple of quick thoughts this morning ...

Last night's Charlie-centric episode of Lost was a good one. And next week we revisit Sawyer's backstory, plus what TV Guide calls "a search for redemption on the island". Btw, did you notice how cozy Sayid and Shannon were getting during that panning shot in the cave?

I'm not sure whether or not I'll make it to the end of the Bartlett administration. The West Wing is starting to feel a little tired; I particularly notice it in the episodes where Josh is absent. The second-string team is on the field now, and I just don't see any sparks.

I didn't think I'd miss Serena Sutherland on Law & Order, but I do. Jack's latest assistant does nothing for me. And, really, did they have to call her Alexandra? The franchise already has an ADA named Alexandra (Cabot -- on SVU -- currently in the witness protection program, but scheduled to make some appearances this season).

*******************

LJ is broadening my horizons. For proof of this, just note the fact that I found myself reading a little article about Peter Doherty in the Arts section of today's New York Times. Seems PD finally made bail and is determined to kick his heroin habit "for the sake of his relationship with the model Kate Moss, his band mates, his mother and his fans". I wonder how his mother feels about only coming in third on the list. I've still not heard music by either his former or current band; if I were curious, anyone want to make a suggestion about a good place to start? (C, this means you.)

I did pick up a new CD the other day -- the debut album recorded by Tim Buckley (Jeff's dad) in 1969. I can't seem to stop playing it. His voice at 19 was just amazing.

I think it's rather a good sign that she's not first on the list. That would really be worrying -Boys fortunately stop thinking of their mother first when they're mature. The boys who don't ... well...

I think this is important to me. I hope someday my children just stop thinking that I'm the most important person in the world. Well my eldest children did already. And Héloïse too. That leaves Clémentine and Chloé and tell you what? It's a real burden. I wish I was free from kids' love.

You probably have a few years to go yet with Chloé. As for Clémentine, all you can do is be patient.

This piece of sage advice is brought to you by the woman who neither has children of her own, nor any nieces/nephews. Feel free to toss it out on its ear.

I think you can give wise advice even if you have no kids. After all, I write male gay stories (porn, sometimes) without being a man! ;)

Oh, yeah, I'm great about giving advice to other people. But taking my own advice, let alone advice from others, is another story altogether.

Well, you could turn to me for Libertines things, of course. Tell you what, now that I have your snail mail addy, I know what I'll be sending you. :-)A Libertines best off. A complete lesson in Libertines love from the Libs with Pete and Carl, to them without Pete to BabyShambles (Pete's new band). ;-) It means you won't be getting it before a week or so, I suppose (no idea how long until it gets to you from here...), but that way you'll get a good sample. And since there's no guarantee you'll like them, I'll include something else in that as well, French music or something. :-D

Oh! Wasn't expecting to hear about the bands from you (guess I should go back and see what sort of things you were writing about before we met on Aline's lj). msdaccxx (do you know her?) writes a lot about music and bands in her posts, and is the source of the (very little) I know about the whole Libertines-Babyshambles story. It sounds like you and she would have a lot to talk about.

French music, yes please! I don't know anything about contemporary singers, and hate to just buy blindly at Virgin.

Yeah, I know her from around (she's on my flist) and we do share the Libs love, lol. She's also extremely close to sparktastic, and sparky's the one who got me hooked on the Libs initially. I went to Paris back in early November and was at their concert there for free, spent the night following the band around... it was fun. :-D Actually, if you're curious, you can see the pics I took that night here. But anyway, msdaccxx would probably be able to tell you more about them and all, but I'd be happy to send you a CD if you want (I was planning on sending you the French stuff anyway, so... it was going to be a surprise, now you know, lol).
