"You should never say bad things about the dead, only good… Joan Crawford is dead. Good.” —Bette Davis

Ming-Na is one of those people who seems so awesome somebody must have made her up: those looks at that age, a brilliant actress who's been working in genre projects for decades with the occasional side forray into little things like The Joy Luck Club and ER, and a self-confessed geek girl.

GS: If you had to choose between kicking evil in the head or the behind, which would you choose, and why? Minsc: I'm not sure I understand the question. I have two feet, do I not? You do not take a small plate when the feast of evil welcomes seconds.

I'd swear she was half her actual age, looking at that picture.

I've said it before, but this is such a great time to be a geek, with genre projects tearing up both the television and box office. I never understood the need of some people to try to guard the doors of geekdom. It's like, "Dude, wake up! Even if I were to accept your premise of "fake geeks", which I don't, if you were to drive them all off the popularity of super-heroes, sci-fi and fantasy will take a nose dive, and with it all the money that's paying for the creation of those shows and movies. We'll be left low-budget rip-offs directed by the likes of Uwe Boll and remakes of "Trial of the Incredible Hulk."

Love is stronger than death and harder than sorrow. Those who practice it are fierce like the light of stars traveling eons to pierce the night.

Watching the AoS finale, when Ward started explaining the gun set-up to Bobbi, I started saying "tlot-tlot, tlot-tlot". Daniel looked at me funny. So I gave him the further hint, "Bess, the landlord's black-eyed daughter." He got it after I said, "The Highwayman." Funny thing is, that old poem has been on my mind for a couple of weeks.

That's funny, Andi, I hadn't thought of that before, but it's pretty perfect for the scene. The Highwayman and the Charge of the Light Brigade were two of my favorite poems for the way the meter matched the action.

Hey, I was thinking about The Highwayman as well. I remembered studying that poem in college (plus, of course, there's the Lorena McKennitt song version.)

this mess was yours / now your mess is mine

Re: SHIELD, Tim said something like, "I wonder if we'll find out how many copies of the 'twins' there are." And I thought he meant the duplicating redhead in the finale, but he meant Patton Oswalt.

And then I realized there needs to be fanfic of the Patton Oswalt guys dating the duplicate redheads. YES.

If I want to become a cloud of bats, does each bat need a separate vaccination?

WANT.

So, Daredevil. I'm enjoying everything about it except the actor who plays Foggy is just so terrible. The bottle ep with all the flashbacks where he finds everything out would have been gutting if I'd believed in Foggy as a character, but the actor is so wooden and robotic, it was just only ok.

"I'm useless alone." // "We're all useless alone. It's a good thing you're not alone."

Foggy was definitely my least favorite, though he grew on me a bit. However, the entire series needed twice as much Rosario Dawson.

So come, my friends, be not afraid/We are so lightly here/It is in love that we are made; In love we disappear

Five times as much, seriously. ALL THE ROSARIO.
