I watched all six seasons of Weeds last week. That was an interesting experience and I wish I'd stopped after season three (loved those first three seasons). I've never seen a show change so dramatically for the worse from one season to the next. It was like a completely different show (and not a very good one).

If I'd been watching Weeds in real-time, I doubt I would've stuck with it through the fourth season. Marathoning a show has a way of making you keep going, though — you always hope it'll get better soon and when soon is maybe two hours away instead of a month away, it's a lot easier to watch the next episode. Sadly, It never did get better and seasons 4-6 are just a blur of wandering mediocrity. WTF Weeds? How does that happen and why? Stagnation is bad, so I can understand wanting to change things up a bit, but throwing out everything that makes a show good and turning it into something completely different makes no sense at all.

I've read that season seven will be the last one, so when it airs later this year, I'll watch it just to complete the show and see how it ends. I think I already know, though. Well, I have some speculation... )

Back when Warehouse 13 premiered (July '09?), they offered a free HD copy of the pilot on iTunes and I added it to my cart. My recollection is that I started the download, but it was over 2gigs and very slow, so I killed the download and deleted it. Since then, every time I buy anything, iTunes starts downloading that damn Warehouse 13 pilot again. I always stop it and delete it, but it's there again the next time. I've even let it download completely before. That didn't end the madness either. My account always shows I have that one item available for download. I can't figure out how to get rid of it!

I think that Warehouse 13 pilot got sucked into a parallel universe and the doorway to it is inside my iTunes account.

It seems people like The Sarah Connor Chronicles as much as they like the word FUCK. WTF TSCC was the number 1 video on their "Around the Net" segment. It's at about 6:20 into the segment below. Or you can watch just the part about the vid here.

In other news, I've used far too many exclamation points in my subject lines lately. I think for my penance, I should refrain from subject line exclamation point usage for at least two weeks.

This is way cool: io9 picked up on my WTF TSCC vid. It's nice to see TSCC mentioned on there again, even if it is just for a silly bleeping video. Oh show, I love you so much. And I love you even more when you can make me laugh.

I have something like 6 fan vids in various stages of progress, but for some reason, this idea called to me and I had to run with it. After a few days of obsessive editing, it's done. This isn't exactly a typical fan vid — just a creative use of clips (no music). Explaining too much could ruin the fun, so I'll leave it at that. I laughed so fucking hard while making this. I hope it'll amuse you.

Warning: This is completely unbeta'd crack (I deemed it not worthy of someone's time for beta).

Watch it on youtube
Watch it on Vimeo
Download it (42mb, 640x360 Quicktime movie)

ETA: Updated... again. I'm finally satisfied. Next time I finish a vid, someone remind me not to post it for three days so I can see the problem spots with fresh eyes before making it public! I guess that's what beta is for, eh? Heh. Lesson learned ;)

My giant crazy cat ate my favorite necklace. Well, he didn't eat the little charm, but he ate about 95% of the leather strap it dangles from, including the clasp. WTF cat?! I must have left part of it sticking out of my jewelry box or something and he yanked it out. The jewelry box was still closed, yet I found the remnants of the necklace on the floor.

He's like a shark, this cat. He'll eat anything. He's been known to eat plastic, tape, paper, carpet fuzz, rubber bands, pieces of vinyl mini blinds, styrofoam, hair, ponytail holders and aluminum foil. And now I'll add a leather strap and a metal clasp to the list. I wonder if all this stuff is just stuck in his stomach?

I've got the vocals from the baby monitor in Sarah's turtle dream in Complications (it helps to have an audio engineer in the family). My brother (the sound guy) said there were 2 distinct vocal tracks in there. He isolated them, cleaned them up as well as he could and slowed them down a bit.

Don't get too excited because they're still quite distorted. It kind of sounds like someone whispering from the far end of a long metal pipe, and on the first few listens it'll sound like nonsense. But after repeat listenings, you can tell there are words being said.

The links to MP3s and my interpretation of what's being said are below:

Baby monitor vocal - Part 1
"because I made you"

Baby monitor vocal - Part 2
"you've become mine"

Let me know if you think they say something different.

I saw a guy with a comb in his back pocket and a mullet.

I don't just mean a regular comb. Remember those combs with the long handles that people used to carry in their pocket as a fashion accessory? When was that, like 1980 or there about? Well he had one of those and it was sticking a good 4" out of the back pocket of his jean shorts, complimented by long socks and a muscle shirt (sans muscles).

And when I say he had a mullet, I don't mean an ordinary mullet. I'm talking full-on Billy Ray Cyrus Achy Breaky Heart mullet, the length of which was pulled neatly back in a ponytail that hung to the middle of his yellow muscle shirt (which matched his yellow muscle car, by the way). Here's the odd thing: he was using a girl's scrunchie to hold his ponytail.

How does a guy end up like that? I think there's a story there.
