Still can’t post from work. It may be that I won’t be able to anymore. Which means no weekday posts until 5 P.M. or so. By me, that is, it’d be great if any of you want to.
Also, no idea what happened to the “Chaz Bono” post. I’d copied a pic of an OWS gal holding a sign reading “have a degree in transgendered Latino studies and still can’t find a job”. Oh well.
And I just finished the first season of Dexter. The very premise of the series…the protagonist is a serial killer…provided a list of necessary story elements, which they follow. Obviously he has to target other killers, certainly he needs a profession providing access to them, etc. etc. etc.
The show is very well written and acted. And they make sociopathy less glamorous than I expected. But man, Dexter is such a whiner. Awww, relationships are tough? At least you have relationships, killer. Great…even psychopaths have richer social lives than I do.
The creators don’t recognize Dexter’s central fallacy: he believes he doesn’t care about other people yet is compelled to kill them? That’s bovine byproduct. You see the problem? Someone who really doesn’t care becomes a hermit, not a killer. You don’t get to work your butt off at something and claim not to care.
But Michael C. Hall’s performance is astounding. He’s masterful in the role.
