This is my current favorite playlist. I was in a situation yesterday where there were no buses running between my house and the train station so I made the 45 minute walk listening to this list, and it kept my spirits high, high, high.....

Beetlejuice Love Part II

Just in case you weren't sure already...I really do love that Ghost with the Most!!!

Beetlejuice: The Animated Series

Memory lane is a wonderful, but sometimes painful thing. This evening we are reminiscing about Beetlejuice: The Animated Series. Short-lived and brilliant, this gem of a cartoon STILL has not made an appearance on DVD...and I think it's high time that it does. So many horrible, random, crap series get put onto DVD; why not this one? I have an overwhelming urge to pop it into my player and enjoy it on the comfort of my sofa, instead of being hunched over at my computer watching it on a tiny YouTube screen. I'm not going to start a petition myself, because I'm no good at that sort of organization, but I think I might search for one. Because I know 2 people who would buy it. Me and my sister. So DVD gods, if you're listening, I buy so so so many DVDs, could you maybe find it your hearts to make this one for me? please?

Another TV Blog and other updates

I have shared with quite a few people the TV list undertaking and instead of horror and disgust and "how can you spend so much time watching TV???"; I've had a LOT of enthusiastic responses and even recommendations to add to the list. So this list is being expanded as follows:

25. Carnival
26. Newsradio
27. Bit of Fry and Laurie
28. Weeds
29. Big Love
30. Family Ties

Newsradio I'm surprised we left off, since it's a favorite of both of ours. As far as Tv sit-com writing is concerned, I honestly don't think it gets much better than that. Bit of Fry and Laurie I bought for Griff at Christmas, it just unfortunately got lost in the pile. Family Ties I ADORED growing up and Griff has never seen. 

We finished The Wire, and I am still telling everyone and their brother that they need to watch it. For everything that is good and holy, it's a gem in television history. Then we moved on to The Prisoner. A little background:

The show was filmed in either the 60's or 70's. I don't actually care enough to research this point. Griff heard of it because the intro to Iron Maiden's "Number of the Beast" has a sound clip from the show, and a few people from (his) work have gone on and on about it. So I bought it for him for Christmas and he's been a bit peeved that we haven't started it yet.

So we finish the Wire, and I put the Prisoner on the list 2nd just to make him happy. WELL, I have tried to watch the 1st episode TWICE and have fallen asleep both times. It's insanely cheesy and boring and I have no interest in fighting this one out. Griff designated certain series to my own private viewings, and this one is going to be watched by his lonesome. Sorry I tried.

That sorted, we have moved on to The X-Files. While watching I have taken to my other website on and started a list of all my favorite X-Files episodes while watching. I genuinely forgot what a treat season 1 actually is. 

Otherwise, life is hectic at the moment. School is kicking my ass and in a way, I don't really care anymore. I'm ready for it to be finished and move on to the masters program. I don't feel challenged this semester, and I'm ready for a challenge. I'm also giving a lot of thought of what I would like to do career-wise. Lately, I've been google-ing information about publishing and editing. (You might not realize this by reading my blog, but I actually edit my work and other peoples quite a bit...thus I'm flirting with the idea). 

Griff, as always, is amazing.
