Epiphany

I just suddenly realized something both earth-shatteringly awesome and frivolously shallow (and yes, I am completely sober): Kristen Bell of Veronica Mars and Heroes fame guest-starred as Flora Anderson in two episodes of Deadwood: "Bullock Returns to the Camp" and "Suffer the Little Children".

That is all.

She's also...

...the voice of Gossip Girl.  *JW runs and hides*

BTW - I watched Mad Men per your recommendation.  It was awesome and belongs in the pantheon.  However, I did find Dexter (watered down version coming to CBS, ugh) more entertaining, even though Mad Men is overall a better production.  Only thing I didn't like is it was too preachy.

Also, we need to figure out what to do with The 'Verse.  This should ideally go there.  Kyle's been running the show, but he could use some re-enforcements.

I'll try Dexter. What the hell is Gossip Girl?

I don't really like the idea of intentionally segregating my own content. I don't mind giving readers the option to filter, but I think the default should be integrated content.

 

You and I need to talk. When would be a good time to call you?

GG = The OC, East

Of course, GG can't touch its predecessor.

Usually after 9 PM, though no guarantees, since my cell doesn't work at work.

Yea I know huh? Seeing her

Yea I know huh? Seeing her as she was in Deadwood was, well, shocking. (Yikes.)

Dexter is great, Mad Men is great. I've got a soft spot for Big Love too, and hopefully season 3 isn't on hiatus indefinitely. Big Love, I hypothesize, I enjoy for its social importance. It has contributed to my resistance to too much emphasis on "thick" libertarianism (since we're talkin' about it 'round here). Whom shall I agitate for, polygamous women or lesbians who wish to legally marry? They BOTH seem equally worthy.

I also just picked up HUFF. Haven't watched it yet.

Whom shall I agitate for, polygamous women or lesbians who wish to legally marry?

I lost access to HBO right when Big Love started, so I haven't had a chance to watch it yet. But I'm curious how it contributed to this view. Is agitating for either of these things mutually exclusive?

No, not mutually exclusive, but...

...it certainly takes the wind out of the sails of a "thick" conception of libertarianism, at least as I see it. If thick libertarianism wishes to appreciate the way that families, communities and religion can be stifling to full human flourishing (rather than JUST the state), and acts to achieve positive liberty for "victims" of these things, then the equal weighting of gay marriage and polygamy on one's advocacy scale seems to undermine this program.
