Doctor Who: The Beast Below

I just watched the second episode of the latest Doctor Who season, “The Beast Below.” I won’t post any spoilers, since most readers may not have had a chance to see this episode yet.

The Bird That Sings C, Bb, G

There’s a bird in our yard these days, and it sings a high descending C, Bb, G, holding the first note longer than the other two, and sometimes repeating the last note several times.

LOST, Love, and the Living

Tonight’s episode of LOST, “Everybody Loves Hugo,” was fantastic in many ways – if you have yet to watch it, I warn you that spoilers lie ahead.
