2. Things that amuse me, part two: Jim Carrey on how his union with Jenny McCarthy has been dubbed "Jimeny": "To be part of that tradition is amazing, to be TomKat and Brangelina, and going back to Markapatra and Napolephine. So, it’s not such a bad thing, really!" Hee hee.
3. Doctor-definitely-not-Dr-or-Il-Dottore-or-Doc Who: Have watched the first Eccleston/Piper disc so far, all of three episodes. I like it! I don't love it yet, but of course I need to time to get invested. Still, Simon Callow as Dickens was a treat; and as to "The End of the World" all I can say is: They had me at "Tainted Love." That's the kind of irreverent silliness I can approve of. (And it's probably the exact point at which several of you decided the new series sucked, which is your right, but I do love me some off-the-wall dorkiness.) Anyway, neither of the leads bother me, but Eccleston does look a lot like a former boss I had, which is disturbing, so I won't mind Tennant taking over.
4. I have this sort of ambitious Halloween idea of getting you guys to send me little sound files of you reading a pre-assigned line of some traditional ghostly tale like "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow", which I would then splice together into a cool LJ-people Halloween voice montage. If interested and able to record your voice into a tidy mp3, go ahead and comment and we'll see if the idea flies. [Edit: Voice posts work. I think this can fly!]
