We started watching in Germany in German! Then we watched pirated streams in English. Then we went our separate ways, and now it's 2014 and I'm rewatching alone from the beginning!

s1:e6 - We are all so predictable. Angela predicts Booth & his girlfriend's relationship progression: Keys to each others place, weekend away, then long vacation before eventually moving in together, marriage and finally divorce.

Angela: Oh... you two are so ready for the pre-shacking up test vacation.
Booth: (mumbles) whadomean.
Angela: You have keys to each others places. You've done the weekend away a couple of times.
Yeah. It's time for the 10 day vacation.
You know, Jamaica is like a dry run for living together only with rum punch and steel drums.
Booth didn't get stage six, living together.
I made it to living together, yeah!

I'm on s2, and realize that Cammie shows up in first episode.
The Gravedigger starts. They bring in her father. They use same themes for the TV series Chuck.

Lots of missing father and mother. Role reversal for gender.
Bones analytical, career oriented; Sealy is family-oriented, wants commitment.

>juxtapose.association=Chuck.TV.//Sarah is skilled agent, fighting; Chuck is touch and feel.

I'm on S3. I see that they are bringing in a rotation player, extra helper since Zack leaves for Iraq. Bones is retreating back into lab. Marriage theme starts. Cannibal starts.

s10 available online on netflix. I began watching sometime last week. Rewatched s9 first to remind myself of some of the dynamic in relationship. New characters! And sweet parting.

They had to reintroduce some tense in the Bones/Booth relationship. Gambling habit will do that! The season finale felt like the ending of the series, but I read on TV Guide that they go renewed. There was some behind the scene dealings.


I guess the plot within the first 5 minutes of the movie.

Recurring theme.narrative of a single Hero saving all of humanity, but it is not along the messiah narrative.

Tom Cruise

Red Mars

#author.Kim Stanley Robinson

I can only remember some Russian sounding guy's name. It was a multinational team flying to Mars!
Didn't they start dropping devices that would start the terraforming process? They would float on balloons and get "randomly" dropped in different areas of Mars.

There was an associative link to a desert, nomad narrative -- maybe a reference to Dune? and the whole thought stream about desert, nomadic people living on the margins and innovating in dry desperation?

Dirty Dozen

I saw this movie a long time ago, back in my youth when I watched a lot of war movies, and read books in the young adult section on war, mostly the great war --The Battle of the Bulges, The Bataan March, Iwo Jima. We were still living with the aftermath of the not-so-great war.  When I was a few years older, I read Vietnam - A History by Stanley Karnow, and I read other books on America's land war in Asia.

Anywho, back to the movie. I can only remember Jim Brown running through explosions, while dropping bombs. I think he dies. It's just another case of the wrongly convicted Black man dying for the White mans glory!
