Life goes on

Random thought - I've been thinking that I should create another LJ just for my personal rants - I was thinking that my user tag could be DireDebDownUnder.  I would have no flist and therefore none of you would have to put up with my moaning and groaning - does that sound like a plan?

Fandom stuff - on my re-watch of Veronica Mars I was reminded of how much I enjoy clever TV writing and why VM reminds me of BtVS; the intertextual referencing is such a joy i.e. Veronica and Mac turning up at Clemmons house and doing the whole Rocky Horror routine, or in 2:21 when Woody checks in to the lodge under the name of Underhill, my little Lord of the Rings heart went pitter patter - although when I pointed it out to J, he didn't get it, but then I explained to him that if you read the trilogy once a year for 10 years or so (from 15 to 25 or thereabouts), you probably would.  Does that make me a nerd, or just a fanatic??

Why I download - this week Australian TV is showing the 3rd or 4th episode of Season 9 of Stargate SG-1, and Season 2 of Battlestar Galactica is starting.  Bones begins next week.  Veronica Mars (Season 1) which started airing in December last year at 8:30pm on Fridays and ended at episode 10, and then re-started several weeks ago on Friday night at 9:30pm, is now shifting to 10:30pm.  I download because I can and to save the little of my sanity that remains!
