What I Did With My Friday

I drove up to Cleveland to hang out with these guys:

For those of you lamentably behind in your geek culture studies, the two fellows sitting on the couch are Paul & Storm, and the fellow lurking behind the couch is Jonathan Coulton, and their thing is to entertain the geekoidial masses with songs of mad scientists, sea captain’s wives and, of course, zombies. They gave a groovy show, which is to be expected, and aside from that were mad fun to hang about with otherwise. Also in the hangout crew: artist Len Peralta, who handed me a lovely kid’s book about zombies that he illustrated. Zombies! They’re everywhere, man.

Cleveland was a bit of a jaunt for a concert, but P&S&J were folks with whom I’ve been friendly with online and with whom I share a number of mutual friends, so it was time to close that loop, as it were, in do the “meet in real life” thing. And, well, you know. It’s not like I have a job or anything. So why not. It was time well spent, in any event. I’d make the drive again.

The Permanent Stargate: Universe Discussion Thread, Season Two

This is the SG:U discussion thread for the second season; The season one discussion threads are here: 1|2|3

As there is an interest in having an official comment thread here on Whatever for the discussion of Stargate: Universe episodes, themes and details, behold! This is it. Henceforth, let this be the place you come here to chat with other Whateverites (and occasionally its Creative Consultant as well) about what you see on the show. I’ll put a permanent link to it into the SG:U sidebar widget so it will always be easy to find.

NOTE: This thread will almost certainly contain spoilers of the most recent episode if you come to it during or after the first airing of the show in the US/Canada. Be warned.

All right, then. Discuss the show!
