"If the day and the night are such that you greet them with joy, and life emits a fragrance like flowers and sweet-scented herbs, is more elastic, more starry, more immortal- that is your success. All nature is your congratulation, and you have cause momentarily to bless yourself. The greatest gains and values are farthest from being appreciated. We easily come to doubt if they exist. We soon forget them. They are the highest reality. Perhaps the facts most astounding and most real are never communicated by man to man. The true harvest of my daily life is somewhat as intangible and indescribable as the tints of morning or evening. It is a little star-dust caught, a segment of the rainbow which I have clutched." - Henry David Thoreau

I love the middle seasons and the sixth season is no different -- so many good quotes I didn't realize were season six:
: Never! Never, Marge! I can't live the button-down life like you. I want it all: the terrifying lows, the dizzying highs, the creamy middles. Sure, I might offend a few of the bluenoses with my cocky stride and musky odors -- oh, I'll never be the darling of the so-called city fathers, who cluck their tongues, stroke their beards, and talk about what's to be done with this Homer Simpson?!
: Attention, Marge Simpson: your son has been arrested. [later]
Attention, Marge Simpson: we've also arrested your older, balder, fatter son.
: Back, you robots! Nobody ruins my family vacation but me... and maybe the boy!
: I don't think Bob won that election legally. I can't believe a convicted felon would get so many votes and another convicted felon would get so few.
: Now look, boy: if your Dad goes gaga, you just use that... Shin of yours to call me and I'll come a-running. But don't be reading my mind between four and five. That's Willy's time!
: Have you noticed any change in Bart?
: New glasses?
: No... he looks like something might be disturbing him.
: Probably misses his old glasses.
: I guess we could get more involved in Bart's activities but then I'd be afraid of smothering him.
: Yeah, and then we'd get the chair.
: That's not what I meant.
: It was, Marge, admit it.
: I'm worried about the kids, Homey. Lisa's becoming very obsessive. This morning I caught her trying to dissect her own raincoat.
I know. And this perpetual motion machine she made today is a joke! It just keeps going faster and faster.
: And Bart isn't doing very well either. He needs boundaries and structure. There's something about flying a kite at night that's so unwholesome. [looks out window]
: [creepy voice]
Hello, Mother dear.
: [closing the curtains]
That's it: we have to get them back to school.
: I'm with you, Marge. Lisa! Get in here. In this house, we obey the laws of thermodynamics!
: Talking out of turn... that's a paddling. Looking out the window... that's a paddling. Staring at my sandals... that's a paddling. Paddling the school canoe... oh, you better believe that's a paddling.
: I can't relax, nor can I yield, relent or -- only two synonyms? OH MY GOD! I'M LOSING MY PERSPICACITY!!!! AAAAAAAAHHH! [runs away]
: It's always in the last place you look.
: Boy, when Marge first told me she was going to the police academy, I thought it'd be fun and exciting, you know, like that movie, Spaceballs. But instead it's been painful and disturbing like that movie, Police Academy.
And of course, followng the Police Academy insult train: "How could you?! Haven't you learned anything from that guy who gives those sermons at church? Captain Whatshisname? We live in a society of laws. Why do you think I took you to all those Police Academy movies? For fun?! Well, I didn't hear anybody laughing! Did you?! Except at that guy who made sound effects. Where was I? Oh yeah: stay out of my booze."
Hehe and so much more! It's funny, I read some reviews of these older episodes and a number of people thought they were horrible, while I was too young to see it and understand it at the original air date. Now I think the new ones suck, but I don't think I'm biased, I actually quite liked it up to around 2001, 2002. These last two seasons were like, WTF? Maybe ten years down the line, I will be quoting fom the sixteenth season, too. Hm... ::ponders thoughtfully for no reason again::
Oh and I really hate Dual Discs, of which I already own three (music and DVD content for the same price as the song album -- can't... resist...). In the new imports I've seen they still release them in two separate discs. Are DD's that popular?? I think Dual Disc sucks because now it's twice as likely for the information to get marred, plus, no disc art!! It's also a real bitch to store. I'm so glad the Revenge of the Sith soundtrack (which includes a DVD) didn't opt to go the double D way. I finally gained a little respect back for George Lucas.

After watching ROTS (for the second time) on the 12th, I popped in my ANH DVD for continuation purposes and was transported once again to my relatively recent youth... and as scenes with Obi-Wan Kenobi (Alec Guinness) progressed I started to cry, which surprised me, but even more surprising, why? I knew he was going to "die," I had seen the movie at least 5 times (and about a different edition each time; thanks George). Or maybe it's because of my estrogen. Hahaihahalhahaohahavhahae hahaehahawhahaahahan hahamhahachahaghaharhahaehahaghahaohahar.

I never understand dreams. I dreamt that I was lost with all my old classmates, and I don't mean lost-in-a-mall lost, but lost like that ABC show Lost
. I think we were on an island and we were waiting for someone to pick us up. Anyway, a mystery ensues because for some reason my Manhattan Portage messenger bag was stolen. I go around asking people and finally it turns out Eddie took it and put it somewhere. So I confront Eddie and I say, "if you don't give that bag back to me you'll have to pay me $30 or $40 for it." He says he'll get it and it turns out all my stuff inside had been passed amongst the girls. Okay notice I said "girls" and not "guys" or "everyone else" because strangely enough I had feminine products in my bag (and this bag is not that big)... such as two boxes of tampons and a box of Venus Gillette razors. I confront the girls too and get my stuff back. And then something happened. Like a polar bear came out of nowhere in the hot jungle or puffs of smoke appeared or something.
(All actual people from my past and my real bag featured in my dream!)
It was weird since it was like a combination of two of my favorite new TV drama series to come out last year, Lost
and Veronica Mars
. Watch it on Wednesdays at 9 pm in the new fall season!!
Which reminds me, there's too much stuff coming out in the last two quarters of this year
This is all the stuff I want... that's available for pre-order

It's so weird, the Revenge of the Sith novelization is extremely, extremely well-written. I've read the other novels based on the episodes too, but I don't remember them being as good. I mean, they were better than the actual films, especially Episode I and II, and I remember reading Return of the Jedi at least four times (once during a building blackout). Yet ROTS is just so much better and interesting to read than the other books. Maybe Matthew Stover is just that awesome?
This is the only SW novelization I want to buy, but if I get it I will feel compelled to buy the other five, only because I MUST HAVE A COMPLETED SET OF ANY SERIES, SERIAL, OR SAGA
"Obi-Wan Kenobi opened his eyes to find himself staring at what he strongly suspected was Anakin's butt.
like Anakin's butt -- well, his pants, anyway -- though it was thoroughly impossible for Obi-Wan to be certain, since he had never before had occasion to examine Anakin's butt upside down, which it currently appeared to be, nor from this rather uncomfortably close range."
Later, the evil Darth Vader was born.

Ugh, I want so much stuff
, I'm disgusted with myself, but here it goes again:
I was going to get the Veronica Mars soundtrack on the release day, but it was too expensive so I am patiently biding my time...
Then there's stuff that don't even have images yet, including the Shakira - Oral Fixation CD (I must be stuck back in the 20th century!), and The Simpsons 7th Season.
Sin City - Recut & Extended Edition: Haha, I knew not buying that bare-bones release back in August was a good idea. Suck on that, everyone else who bought it then!
