Bait and switch

So, new Joss Whedon show with Eliza Dushku. I would get excited, but it's on Fox. They've ordered 7 episodes, so I expect that's all we'll get, and the writer's strike won't help. Whedon fans are ever-realistic, though, so we already have a Save Dollhouse campaign and petition. HA.

I see Prince is being an arse, and has got the lawyers on to his fan sites telling them to take down pictures, lyrics, videos, anything else that's remotely copyright protected. I suppose it's just as well that Prince fans tend to be quite rabid anyway and probably won't stop buying his stuff.

Via matgb, the "Liquorice Allsorts are SRS BZNS" saga is now all together in one place at allsortssrsbzns, and made me giggle a lot. When I was at school, one of my friends wrote to Matlow Swizzel and complained that her 2p Drumstick lolly was all white and no pink flavour, and they sent her back a whole huge box of Swizzel sweeties. Matlow Swizzel > Cadbury Bassett, clearly.

Rolling Stone has an Almost Impossible Rock'N'Roll quiz, which I did remarkably well in - I got 31 points, which makes me a Whiz, apparently - although a lot of the answers I got right were due to knowing how multiple choice questions work.

And I did a "Do You Have An Inclination for BDSM" quiz, which is better than it sounds, really.

Season 2 of Heroes is really kicking in now. I'm hoping they've got the first story arc completely written so that the writer's strike won't affect it - fingers crossed! Monday's episode was great again. Loads of cracky theories to discuss with people.

Hello. I should have said hi when I friended you the other day, stumbled across your journal on one of those LJ meanders...

I was happy to hear about the new Joss Whedon, though I'm not sure about the plot idea. Hmm..

Might I ask, where are you watching the new season of Heroes? I'm just catching up with the first series now...

Cheers!

Hello! It's OK, I'm really bad for not letting people know when I friend them, because I never know what to say...

The plot idea could be good or could be awful, I suppose. So I'm keeping hopeful for the moment.

I've been downloading Heroes from mininova every Monday night/ Tuesday morning - can't wait another year for it to come on the BBC!

Ah, cool... I've not actually done BitTorrent before, time to try it! Thanks!

(Sorry to hear about Rent. It is a great show, I saw it years ago.)

I started running through the BDSM quiz but got to

"35. Homosexuality and other deviations are for people that are dissatisfied sexually "

and decided it maybe wasn't the quiz for me since I just can't bring myself to think of homosexuality as deviant even if by the strict linguistic meaning of deviation it is I suppose...

Yeah, I know :( It was a bit weirdly phrased...

I just tried the Rolling Stone quiz and scored 29, which also qualifies me as a whiz. The think I scored highest in the 60's section - but then there were two Beatles questions, so I knew those straight off.

I had to take two goes at the quiz, as on my first attempt, we had a random five second power cut. The streetlight just over the road appears to be dead now, though the other two I can see are working. Maybe that had something to do with the brief power cut.
