My ashke has left me... to go watch a couple episodes of Stargate on Tivo :) I've also gotten her into Firefly. Now all that's left is the final step of Babylon 5, and her journey to the dark side will be complete! Muhahahahaha!

Er, ahem.


Well, at least in terms of tv. I need to get her reading some Vernor Vinge or something like that. She complains that most science fiction is depressing, which i find strange because the Robin Hobb books she likes so much are just as depressing as most science fiction i read, as are some of the comics she's gotten me on to :)

Oh, in other SF/anime news i watched the first DVD of Last Exile last night, which was pretty cool.

Now i'm going to go walk to the village for a late lunch/early dinner in an attempt to help jump-start my brain.

No, Robin Hobb's books, at least the ones I've read, are far MORE depressing than a typical SF. Doesn't mean they're not good, mind you.

You've read the Assassin ones, right? Yeah, those are the ones that i thought were particularly dark. Liveship Traders isn't quite as depressing, but Caithris hasn't read those yet anyways.

Last Exile is pretty awesome. We've watched up to episode 15 in the local anime club now, and it's still good. Alex Rowe is everyone's hero.

Is Alex Rowe the one who shows up in the last five seconds of episode 4(?) (well, other than his two brief appearances earlier) or is he from later in the series?

I think so. Pulls out a big gun and stands there looking cool? Yeah. You'll be seeing a lot of him. Also, Sophia, who you probably haven't seen much except for the out-of-sequence bit at the very beginning, kicks lots of ass too.
