Mandatory Viewing

It should come as no surprise that of the few soft areas left in my heart, one of them is for Carl Sagan.  If it’s been a long time or – don’t even tell me if this is the case, my rage glands will burst – if you’ve never seen it, now’s your chance: Sagan’s seminal Cosmos is now playing at Hulu, all 13 episodes of it.

Carry on, Space Buddy.  Carry on.  <–Just to give you an idea of what a nerd I am, typing that just unexpectedly made me cry.

[Update: and Quantum Leap and Dark Shadows! The Dark Shadows remake!]

    Hey sub. longtime no see. well, except for that time when our fair city was doing the Hoth imitation…

    Just thought I’d let ya know that the missus and I just finished watching Cosmos ourselves. I think it’s the first time I’ve managed to see all 13 episodes. And I’ve discovered I can do a pretty good Carl. And I ain’t just talkin’ the old “billions and billions” bool-sheet. I’m talkin’ full-on explaining the solar system to my children with silverware and the salt shaker.

    also: DAMN, homeboy could rock the t-neck like none other. Also: did I happen to tell you that we named our second daughter after Carolus (= Carl!)Linnaeus and Madame Curie?

    You did tell me! Or your ladyfriend did, anyway.

    I had forgotten how really trippy Cosmos is. I mean, I watched them in school as well as at home… no wonder I’m so weird.
