A few thoughts upon the end of the year.
I’ve known for a little while what the theme of 2009 was: upgrading. This stage of one’s twenties is that way for most people, I suspect, and for me it was both literal and figurative. For example: I got a new computer. I got a new phone. I got a new solution for my digital media needs. I paid for these things myself, with money I’d earned working two jobs. And they’ve...
Watching the “Leverage” pilot as a special NYE treat to myself. Frak me, its delightful.

Got haircut today reminiscent of Stana Katic’s during the first season of “Castle.” VICTORY.
RT @bronwyn: since we’re about to roll into 2010, can we stop calling it “new media”? at least until we get the Star Trek holodecks?

In case you missed it, I put up my top 10 indie favorites list last night — series produced independently that really impressed me over the last year. But while I’m reminding you about it, I might as well mention that there were some Honorable Mentions I shoulda included — like Kuroshio Sea Aquarium, which was really just one video, not a series, but was one of the most...
This was an incredibly tough list to make. Too much good content! RT @NewTeeVee: Top 10 Independent Favorites From 2009 http://bit.ly/5saLqi

synecdoche: matt-t: I have a feeling this is ‘relevant to some of y’alls interests’ and I’m not just saying that because they used one of me and whiskey, but I am flattered. i’m a big fan of that one dude who has a system of a down sticker on his dresser. This is all right. But needs more Clooney.

Home alone at my parents’ house tonight. Trying to tell myself that this isn’t the way a hundred different slasher movies start.
Allow me to join the barrage of Tweets and texts by saying: Hope everyone is having a nice day today, Christmas or otherwise.

Family was so distracted by me introducing Mom to Maru the Cat that the garlic bread caught on fire. Whoops.
Nursing a cold today, so it’s nice to be home with the folks. Though wandering around yelling “CODDLE ME PLEASE” worked better when I was 5.
Home again home again jimmy jig. Tucked away safe in my childhood bed. (After two hours of talking about “Avatar” and “Star Trek,” natch.)
Not exactly world-ending drama, but RT @NewTeeVee: Time Warner vs. Fox: Here We Go Again http://bit.ly/6ypKT3
Spent the weekend on a decongestants bender. It’s like being high, except the high comes from being able to breathe.
Today’s killer of time: Trying to stump the character guesser at http://us.akinator.com. I managed once, but it was a near thing.
AGREEMENT! RT @caseymckinnon: OMG! Just heard that Patrick Stewart will be knighted. SO happy for him right now!
It is sad that it took Jackson’s passing to make this happen, but GUYS “CAPTAIN E.O.” IS COMING BACK!!! http://bit.ly/7SbBRe

This was written at the end of 2008. Looks like, at least when it comes to this year’s Oscar contenders, they got two out of ten right. Still, fascinating in retrospect.
This Time of Year: The Christmas 2007 Mix
This year I had much ambition to make a new Christmas mix for friends, family and Internet stalkers alike, but unfortunately the last couple of weeks have been a mite crazy and lack of energy ultimately prevented it from happening. Thus, I present to those didn’t receive it the first time, This Time of Year, a mix to get you through Christmas and into the New Year, including: 1) Some of...
Chat inspired by yesterday's NewTeeVee Station...
Liz: Every time I feel like I have tapped out all my snark reserves, I find new strength.
Rudy: Snark is infinite.
Rudy: In fact, they're looking into using it as an energy source. As if THAT will ever work. Pfft.

Tell us over at NewTeeVee, and you could win Monty Python DVDs! My only request is that you show a little creativity in your answer. Because that’s really what we’re rewarding.
Catching up on HOUSE tonight...

JJ Abrams’s take on “Star Trek,” ftr, is a masterwork of subtle nerdity. Red shirts, Kobayashi Maru, and of course the creation of an AU. <3
Today’s very-not-grown-up decision - buying a PS3. Watching “Star Trek” on Blu-ray as a result, and HOLY CRAP. So this is what HD means.
Lunch with @jaybushman today was 25% actual business, 75% nerding out about British TV. The way it should always be.
My roommate and I are failures at adulthood.
So here’s the deal. My roommate and I have not done the dishes in… It’s probably bad if I can’t remember, isn’t it? Anyways, we are resorting to desperate measures today, because this really cannot stand any longer. Thus, I have just taken a picture of the kitchen as it currently stands, and published it on this blog for 1 PM today. The only way we are allowed...

Had this saved in a tab so long I’ve totally forgotten who posted it first (maybe Warren Ellis?). Anyways, Ocean’s 11 in space. Dear Britain, please make this show now.
My first day doing @NewTeeVee full-time has been fun, challenging and exhausting. Looking forward to tonight’s @webtvmeetup, and its beer.
Can you make it all the way through this video? Because I sure as hell could not.
Nearing the end of “Farscape” season 2. My respect for people who have not seen “Farscape”? Dwindling. Have Netflix? GET TO WORK.
teamtigerawesome: Are you excited for James Cameron’s Avatar? Are you confused by Avatar’s shitty trailer? Well, we got an exclusive scene from the movie that not only clears up any confusion but also showcases some insane special fx. Enjoy. If you do enjoy, please DIGG this and tell your friends to do the same. Shot by Jonathon Nicholas. Animation by Mike Parker. Starring Sean Bury,...

This article fascinates me not as a piece of gossip, but as an anthropological study of a world I will most likely never, ever inhabit.
