Somewhat like Blanche Dubois....

I have always depended upon the kindness of strangers.

However, I have also depended upon the kindness of good friends.

As Sonic so gently reminded me (as has Pursey, and Piet, and CD, in his own enigmatic way), in my blogging experience, I have depended on the kindness of both;friends, strangers, and strangers whom I have never laid eyes upon, but have become, well, friends.

I have been feeling down of late. But the support of all of the above, as well as some rather kind comments from a group that I will not talk about here (but who, in their own, innocent way, are a tad responsible for my troubles of late),in addition to the first- five- the- rest- to- come -within -the- week episodes of TORCHWOOD have gotten back into a semblance of good spirits.
That, of course, and the many times in the past month that I have actually initiated Protocol 417.

Let us just say that spring has sprung, I am off in the big blue pick-up for some well deserved R and R, and there will be at least five days of Greek "We Are Not White Boys" Havoc with my other should of been brother in the Sunshine State.

Sadly, in order to raise my stealth value above 43, there shall be no photos of Capt.
Jack on Shore Leave.

God. I am SUCH A GEEK!

That I ordered the first five episodes of TORCHWOOD off of ebay (Season One, Volume One), on the hopes that tha anyDVD program on my computer could let me watch region two DVD's.

Well, the gamble paid off. I have my Capt. Jack fix. I have spent the evening eating steak, drinking a fine chardonnay, and watching the first three episodes of TORCHWOOD.

Sigh. It is even better than I could have dreamed. So much so, that I just went back on ebay and ordered Season One, Volume Two.

I want to move to Cardiff.

Am I Blog Addict?

Hello, loyal readers. As you may have noticed, I have not been posting much lately. There has been a mixed reception to the starting of this blog after the unpleasantness of the past month. Some people are all for it-others fear that it shows signs of an internet addiction. As soon as I find a new therapist, I will discuss it with him/her to see what they think.

I do know that my heart may not be in it as much these days, but I will keep doing something fairly relevant maybe once every week or so.

So, keep the torchlights burning......

Blast From The Past, # 1-A Tribute To Our Namesake

(First published June, 2006, on a blog long ago and far away....Sadly, the original video for the first part of the post no longer exists. Here is a more than suitable substitute.And yes, I am a Geek.)

My God! I just realized what the right is so afraid of with this gay marriage thing. Gay Marriage is what ultimatly produces.....Capt. Jack Harkness.

Yes, THIS is what gay marriage will lead to-overly confident, free-thinking, wittier than Oscar Wilde Bisexuals. They are afraid of the pansexual hotness of our beloved Capt. Jack...I mean, really, who wouldn't dump traditional marriage, children, and a lifetime of one man/one woman for this martini drinking, butt gun hiding, RAF uniform fillin' out hot hunk of man love?

And thanks to the glory that is YOUTUBE, I can share with you EXACTLY what I'm talking about!

And just to prove that you can't get enough of Capt. Jack, here is another fan vid that captures all of the sexual tension between Jack, The Doc, and Rose. Just to piss of the Religious Right. God, I can't friggin' wait for TORCHWOOD.

BTW, Sonic. This is just for you. And me, of course. I ain't stupid.

When In ROME

During the long dark teatime of my soul that has been the past three weeks (don't worry, everything resolved, no details, but I still feel a bit battered by the whole experience), I returned many times to one of my favorite movies to cheer me up: the brilliant British comedy Bedrooms and Hallways. This charming film stars two of the most handsome actors every to grace the silver screen: Kevin McKidd and James Purefoy. If you have not seen this film, run do not walk to your closest video store and rent it. It will cure all emotional turmoil, and requires repeated viewings (a tad obsessive compulsive, I know, but....)

Well, just let a few years go by, and both are now stars of the HBO series ROME. I had no idea, until one tragically lonely night I did an IMDB search on both of them. So, I have started watching the second season On Demand, and am ordering the DVD of the first. What a difference a few years and some physical training make:

Pity they don't get to snog in this one, though.

A New Beginning

Those of you in the know will know who I was, and how I was resigned to abdicate my title. At the moment, there shall be nothing new, though I will be posting what I feel are my more relevant and insightful bloggings from the past.

Bear with me in the transition.
