This is a big fucking deal!

The American Affordable Care Act is upheld, including it's individual mandate, by the Supreme Court of the United States in a 5-4 decision. Justice Roberts, the conservative Chief Justice was the surprising swing vote. The rest of the world may laugh at our lateness, and we still have a long way to go, but America is finally limping steadily towards universal health care.

Hey, did you hear? Ryan Reynolds is the new Connor Macleod. Vomitous.

My eyes!!!

I wandered briefly into Poirot/Hastings slash fic. I'll never be the same again.

..that Sylvester McCoy is stealing the movie. I've been reading that between the lines in a few places, including it being explicitly stated by Quint over at AICN. A couple of weeks ago, Elijah Wood made an appearance on Steven Colbert hinting at the same thing. Way to go Sylv! I'm very much looking forward to these two movies.

Well, kind of. ;)

Squee worthy casting news..

Stephen Fry will play the Master of Laketown in the Hobbit, and I do a little happy dance! By the way, have you seen the cast list for the new Torchwood series?

RIP Elizabeth Sladen.

Elizabeth Sladen is gone, and I'm gutted. Frankly, I didn't even know she was sick. One of the best loved companions on Doctor Who, perhaps the actress that best understood and executed such a tricky (deceptively easy) role on television. Seeing her return to the franchise for the past few years, thirty years after she left the show, was such a treat. I feel like the loss of such an actress deserves to be handled within the shows Universe, and I hope they do so, preferably of Doctor Who proper. A proper tribute episode would be nice. Over on her spin off show, I understand the Sarah Jane Adventures was only half way done it's 5th season. While this death seems sudden, I presume they were well aware of her condition and probably have a back up plan. I really hope they handle her passing with class, but knowing the people in control, I have absolutely no fears that they won't. This would be the event it would be nice to see Tom Baker back and involved for in some fashion.

Dangermouse has written a TNG novel. Who references? Maybe some jabs at Voyager?

It's me, I'm not dead! Yay! Had a great time last weekend seeing jblum, lordalius, and jvowles, among others. Thanks to jvowles for having us all over on Saturday. I got my first look at Outland, a pilot sitcom out of Australia which is my new favorite thing in the world. You can see the pilot

On Tuesday, I then saw lordalius again as he came to town to stage manage what I'm sure was a lovely baroque french opera. Luckily, I wasn't busy today, so we were able to hang out and scream at Mubarak to get out already as well as watch various lovely things. We haven't actually seen each other face to face for about a year now, believe it or not. We'll have to do better. ;)

Being a Verizon customer, I have only just now entered the iWorld with my new iPhone, which arrived yesterday, and I'm in love. Where has it been all my life?

No surprise, I'm sure, that I've been absolute rubbish at livejournal for.... well, about the past year at least. Hope to do better! I have been quite busy. And, as I don't believe I've hocked it here yet, you can buy my recently (well, several months ago at least) released album of Italian Opera Arias here on Amazon, as well as on amazon.co.uk and on iTunes. The album is available on these sites as either a CD or an MP3 download. You can also hear samples of all of the tracks for free! If you want a special treat, you can see a bad review right on top of the reviews on the amazon link. Still, I've had some great reviews on the various sites and it's been selling reasonably well. I'm told the publisher just had to re-stock amazon, in fact.

I know I only really have contact with many of you through livejournal, so I apologize for being so bad at keeping up lately. If you are active on the social networking sites, you can find me much more active on both Facebook and Twitter. Add me! Most of all I hope everyone is doing reasonable well, and doing their best to make it through this winter!

Ciao for now!
