This was interesting, the author
of “100 Things to Do Before You Die”—died. He was only 47. Evidently, he died in a fall at his home. Weird. Think it’s a karma thing? He did all the things he wanted and then….
Here’s a clip
from Terminator-the Sarah Connor Chronicles. Season One is out now on DVD. I think I read in season two, John will not be such a wuss… It’s about time.

Now, on to a subject near and dear to my heart. This from Elaine Bergstrom
who got to see the first four or five episodes of True Blood. Take it away Elaine:
Oh yes. I will be watching this big time. Spilling is problematic because I have taken a pledge to not spill (my job) but I thought Anna Paquin as Sookie is marvelous. Bill is interesting, really seems older, as he should, and I am finding him, over time, to be the most sympathetic character in the series, other than her. I am really enjoying the southern decadence of the setting and characters. Since Alan Ball (6 Feet Under) is doing it, it has a lot of different subplots; I would suspect even more than the books. Of course, it's already had a few murders, so it's a kind of whodunit. I'm glad I never read the books.
Erik just has a few minutes so far, but it's a killer scene. I think you'll all like it.
Thanks to all my pals who have pimped Legacy this week. It’s much appreciated.
