sick day post: Torchwood, Episode 3

After the first two episodes of Torchwood, my feeling was: I didn't love it so much that I was sure that I would keep watching it forever, but I also didn't dislike it enough to stop watching. It seemed like it had enough potential to be worth keeping an eye on until it was clear whether or not it would be worth keeping up with.

Episode 3 came out this week and I have to say I liked it the best of the three so far; if the series continues to be this good I will be pretty happy.

While I was falling asleep last night, though, I thought about the episode some more and managed to confuse myself about what the Plot Device did, exactly. Spoilers and overanalysis Collapse )


I hope some trick-or-treaters show up. Otherwise I will end up with a huge amount of candy.

(And for once in my life I don't feel like eating a ton of candy. I guess I could throw it into the freezer until I do.)

open mike Wednesday

Chris and I are planning to have a short practice after work tomorrow (Wednesday November 1); then we're going to head over to Tazza for some open mike playing! So this is probably a good time to repost my offer:

If you come to an open mike to see me play, I will buy you a drink of your choice (alcoholic or not).

The Tazza open mike generally starts around quarter to 9 pm. I generally try to get one of the first slots. If desired, I can call people and let them know which slot I get, so that you can get there in time for my playing without getting exposed to too much of the open mike experience. (Although I think the quality of the Tazza open mike is generally pretty good, as these things go.)

In other music news: Due to a scheduling screw-up, Nick-a-Nees originally didn't have us booked for all of November. However, earlier this week one of their bands cancelled on them, so we will be playing a week from Thursday (so on November 9) after all.
