I shook hands with Adam and Jamie earlier. (Pics will be up tomorrow)

[blog]
I went to the Arlene Schnitzer to see them live, (no experiments), and they were talking about their best experiences, how they got started, etc. It was interesting to learn that Adam worked on Star Wars I & II. :o

Of course the best part was when they played some slow motion footage, one of Jamie slapping Adam, hard. The other was of Adam running while drunk on a treadmill.

Afterwards, I got to go backstage 8-) to shake their hands and get pictures. Pretty sweet.

It's refreshing to take a break from the political crap that's going on and just watch something explode or catch fire. ;D

Cat! I'm a kitty cat. And I dance dance dance, and I dance dance dance.

I love that show. At least one thing goes in flames/steam/lethal force each episode.

I like the show, too. They have real fun. They're nothing like f.i. Penn & Teller, which is kind of funny too, but too much frown and too low stomach pH.

Since I've seen most/all of them, and have most/all of them on DVDR now, I don't have that problem ;)

Since I've seen few of them I'd have to dedicate at least a week for them. That's why I stick to BSG and dead shows that have just few episodes (Jericho and Firefly).

Thats boring ::) I constantly run out of stuff to watch. Last night I just finished watching a 4 season long show that I really wish had more :( but its not likely to happen, the people who created and produced it aren't working at the place they made it anymore :(

I seem to spend waste my time by other means. Plus I'm quite lazy to obtain something to watch.
