Going Fishing

I've been inviting fishing, yes me a fish alergic, disagree with hunting for sport person (there really should be a word for that).

Anyway I'm sure that I'll be spiked by a merlin and then eaten by a Tiger shark so that's ok. (This will be a lot funnier when the site I want to link to is back up)

I'll report back after and now I have blogging from my phone working there might be live blogs with pictures.

About to watch second series of Bones which is starting tonight. I only mention this as it'll take months to get to the UK :) Watch out for me mentioning other TV shows starting here before it gets to the UK.

New Dave Sim web comic

No idea about this at all.

Babylon 5

Well I've just finished the last episode of series 5. The last series faltered at the beginning (this isn't an new idea by any stretch of the imagination) with the Telepaths and I really don't know why. I personally just didn't like Bryon. Lyta's slow tranformation from lapdog to terrorist (or weapon of mass destruction) was convincing it's just the rest came over to me like Church of England wimps. (I'm not calling all COE people wimps but you know the stereotype).

Anyway the rest was on a par with series 2,3,or 4. The last few episodes were great, and the feeling of the story ending as everyone slowly left the station was one I personally identified with as I have left one country and moved to another. Ironically I've watched the entire 5 series run in my new home.

The final episode was as affecting as The Body from Buffy, obviously both eps deal with death and how you deal with it, in one the inevitable death of yourself, the other the death of a parent/friend.

I think I'll have a gap before I watch the movies and then Crusade. Because they're not as good and B5 is a great story that needs a pause before another lesser story is told in the same universe.

It does make me slightly pissed off that I got rid of the 3 novel trilogies before I moved, but that was my choice. Maybe with the new B5 tales anthologies TV show that going direct to DVD they may re-issue then (or even better release them as e-books)

Update on weather

Well the hurricane passed 1000 miles away and we got a bit of weather. In fact I completely forgot about it until I was reading a guy's blog this morning, who was here for Fabian (a hurricane that hit 3 years ago and was the worse to hit Bermuda in 50 years).

So we got a bit of rain basically. When I announced the Ness that this was a bit boring, I got a the responce that where weather is concerned boring is good. :)

Went out for a meal on Saturday night with a group of people from the Bermuda's New Islanders Club, had a fun time and met some nice people.
