Homicide geekage

There was one thing about last week that didn't suck. I am now listed as one of the contributors at Homicide: Links on the Sites.

And in the "even better" category, Season 3 is coming to DVD October 28. I'm wondering if they sped up the release date because the first set has sold so well -- it's currently #55 at Amazon in the DVD section and has been as high as the top 20. Season 3 may have the most bang for the buck -- Crosetti's suicide, Pembleton's loss of faith, and one of television's most brilliant story arcs, the "Officer Down" storyline. Not to mention nude photos of Munch. ;)

scarcrest says the detective I'm most like is Kellerman -- snarky, witty, hot-tempered, fun-loving, Irish. I think this is his way of saying I drink too much.

Hey, logand, why Howard? Not that I'm not honored, mind you! ;)

Gregory Peck

"Well, I'm standin' in line in the rain to see a movie starring Gregory Peck,
Yeah, but you know it's not the one that I had in mind.
He's got a new one out now, I don't even know what it's about
But I'll see him in anything so I'll stand in line."

--Bob Dylan, "Brownsville Girl"

I was thinking last week about the AFI top heroes and villains list, and how right it was that Indiana Jones was number two and Atticus Finch was number one. Why those numbers? Because what it comes down to is: Most of us have accepted that we'll never be Indiana Jones. But we all want to believe that, given the chance, we could be Atticus Finch.

Rest in peace, Mr. Peck. And thank you.
