Rud éigin faoin seile na buaf agus colm bán

4 October 2005


I’d half a huge long post written about Serenity and the fan ranting and raving and the non-fan flaming, and the Joss getting involved[1] but then I decided, nay, I don’t want to post on this.

Instead I’m going to say, you know this Night Watch looks all interesting. And I’ve read they’re even making the subtitles all cool by changing the look of them depending on the emotion behind the words.

Even the subtitles join in, Bekmambetov seamlessly weaving them into the action, sometimes having them whisp onto and off the screen in smoky italics, sometimes blasting them out in capitals. His work, to risk an obvious word, is spellbinding

Oh and a little disclaimer, that Irish in the title, not a clue if it is correct. Well, I mean the words are, but grammer-wise I’m not sure if they make much sense.

    I don't know if you saw where I told you on my blog, but Friday, I bought Ellie (my daughter) a Cabbage Patch Doll for her birthday and her name was Serenity. Made me think of you.

    Yup Anne, you got it.

    Heather I hope your Serenity is a lot more peaceful than the ship, or the battle. Are Cabbage Patch Dolls big again? I remember seeing a few around last Christmas. Which reminds me, I saw an Christmas ad on the telly yesterday. That is just plain shocking. imo. I mean, as I've pointed out, it isn't even Hallowe'en yet.

    Not too big, not like in the 80s. But they are still around. She loves baby dolls so I got her that. Holding off on Barbie as long as I can.

    We have Christmas already in the stores in the States. It came before Halloween this year. As soon as the back to school stuff was out of the way, here came Santa.

    I think one of the big toys over this year is going to be that evil crazy frog thing *shudder*

    You know pretty soon it'll be Xmas all year round, and not the good sitting around part, but the hellish buy buy buy aspect
