And if the vid show thing doesn't work out, well. Who doesn't want to see more Lord King Bad Vids? There are whole fandoms that missed out on the last round due to not really existing yet. I feel like Merlin, for example, just cries out for Lord King Bad Vidding.
2) When you are feeling physically wretched for an assortment of not-very-good reasons, there is nothing like seven episodes of Mythbusters in twenty-four hours to make you feel better. Although the sleep, drugs, and pizza probably helped.
3) So last summer, maybe you remember this, I got kind of hooked on the Varg Veum movies, which are from Norway. So, also sometime last summer, I think, I became a fan of Varg Veum on Facebook. It's really entertaining to see occasional posts on my Facebook newsfeed entirely in Norsk. I'm pretty sure that the first of the six new movies is premiering, possibly at some sort of film festival, on Thursday the 26th, and from the set photos posted a week or two ago, I'd guess they're hard at work making more movies.
Now I just have to wait for the movie(s) to make it to DVD, get subtitled in English, and cross the Atlantic. No sweat. In the meantime, I should chase down another of the novels in translation....

5) Speaking of Amy Pond and my undying love for her, Neil Gaiman shares a scene cut from the episode he wrote, which is about to go to table-reading.
This year I may be looking forward to the Amy and Her Boys Christmas Special (which, to be clear, is not the episode mentioned above, but still, AMY AND HER BOYS) more than Yuletide.
6) Also speaking of Amy Pond, I was following David Hewlett for a while on Twitter (because Joe Flanigan got on Twitter and I was following him and it seemed obvious) but then I had to un-follow him for his egregious failure to appreciate Amy Pond. :(
The Flan continues to be pretty entertaining, though.
7) I should write something. Speaking of Amy Pond...
The red-haired girl was easily as tall as Cordelia but a generation younger; she came to an instant, wide-eyed halt when she saw Aral and the men flanking him, and Aral watched as her eyes darted around, no doubt taking in the rest of his inner perimeter and the street which was empty but for his own vehicle.
Aral limited his own gaze to a quick survey. She was dressed Betan-style, for hot weather and loose standards, in a shirt that covered her arms to the wrist but a skirt that left her legs bare halfway up her thigh. Her hair fell down around her shoulders in soft waves
She stood framed in the doorway of the blue box like a deer poised for flight. In an accent Aral could have sworn was straight out of the hillcountry, her voice high and strained, she called out, "Doctor!"
A man stuck his head out of the door just behind her. He had long untidy hair, mousy brown, and his eyes swept smoothly over the scene outside the box.
"Would you look at that," he said, seeming entirely unsurprised. "Pond, you've stopped traffic."
