Da Vinci

It's late and I oddly don't have much that I feel like blogging on. Oh sure, I could talk about last night's finale of House, which was bloody weird. Especially the bit with Cameron and the auto-surgeon device. But really, it wasn't much of a cliff-hanger ("Will Dr. House survive?!" Well, I should bloody think so, it's his show). Nor do I feel right talk about Lost because I missed most of the season, although I'm certain there is enough there to give the devotees seizures for most of the summer.

Oh, by the way, if you want to rewatch season two of House, it will be out on DVD August 22. I probably will, although as I said before, the first third of the season was a mess. But they picked it up nicely once Stacy left the show.

The later part of August is shaping up to be expensive for DVDs, what with House, season two of Veronica Mars and the first season of The Tick. Oh, and this article says that 12 of the 13 episodes from the first season will be shown. One is tied up with legal problems, which is quite annoying. I want all of my Tick, damn it.

Yeah, in case you haven't figured out from the links, I hit quite a bit. Great site if you want info on your favourite TV shows, well, coming out on DVD.

And now, one last bit of culture before I away off to bed. I haven't seen The Da Vinci Code yet, and I remain one of the small group of people in an armed conclave who haven't read the book. Why? I don't know. But I do have a greater understanding of people who are proud to say they've never seen Star Wars, and never will. I always use to think they were mad, but maybe they were onto something.

Anyway, with a book and movie that popular, you knew the porn industry couldn't be far behind. From a link off of Warren Ellis' site, I give you, The Da Vinci Load.

I still think they're crazy.

(says the geek who waited in line to see Episode I in St. John's - lol)

Well, I've done that and more. We lined up to not only buy tickets in advance to go and see the 12-hour Lord of the Rings marathon, but also early to get good seats. And then spent 12 bladder-bursting, back-breaking, colon-shattering hours watching the damn thing.

And I've done similar things for Star Wars, Batman and whatnot. So I'm not unfamiliar with crazy geek things.

Having said that, I do have a great appreciation on bucking what everyone watches or reads just for pure, sweet spite.
