    I'm really, *really* not a woman that cries easily, neither while watching movies nor in my personal life. However.... it takes a few notes of the "Dying Station" theme from 'Sleeping in Light' (I have the "Best of Babylon 5" soundtrack album)... and my eyes sting! If I even hold on to the image of the station exploding in my mind, then tears form! Heck, when I watch the whole thing together, sound and image on the DVD, then the tears do fall!

    If this isn't proof that I've been watching too much B5, that it has affected me deeply, then I don't know what it is! Thank you JMS, thank you Christopher Franke!

    I really like using that shit-eating smile that Sheridan sported for the first several episodes of the second season, when he knew that he was there to essentialy probe everyone for Hague. Someone pisses me off, and I give them the smile and tell them something to satisfy them enough to get them out of my face.

    Actually, the smile I use is a combination of Sheridan's and Morden's.

    Well, I'm a college student now, and I work part-time at a super market. I was the front-end manager (In charge of the cashiers) Saturday night and it was insanely busy due to the holiday. At one point, a couple of newer cashiers kept on telling me they needed something while I was in the middle of doing something, so I said "I'm in the middle of 15 things, all of them annoying". lol

    Everytime you watch/hear anything of Pirates of the Penzance, you think of Marcus and Doctor Franklin.

    When someone asks me what the school lunch is on any given day, I always say "spoo."

    They always think they get the joke, which is half the joke AFAIAC.

    You refer to Daffy Duck as the Ancient Egyptian God of Frustration.

    You refer to Sweedish Meatballs as Breen.

    You have a serious mistrust of anyone with the last name Clark.

    Nah, I've been doing that since Jaws.

    Hey Phazed ...

    I'm not in Dublin ... though I was there in November of last year. I am an American of mostly Irish descent (Our predominant ancestry is O'Connor Kerry). Last year I went to Ireland to research for the novel I am writing as well as obtain more authenticity for the reenactment guild I run. Our specific history is the O'Neill rebellion 1594-1603.
    I can put you into contact with a few people in Ireland that do run historical reenactment though. I met up with Brendan McAnallen in Benburb and Hiram Morgan who lectures on that particular history at University College Cork. The later is not a reenactor but has written the best books on the subject. Brendan is most directly involved with Irish historical reenactment. I believe they are going to be doing 1594's Battle of Yellow Ford this year, if they haven't already done it.
    Email me directly and I will pass on his (and his sons) email.
    My email is My email


    FuryPilot - I am familiar with the reasons behind the choice of using the rattan and duct tape. I meant no offense and did not mean to put you on the defensive. Merely stating that I prefer to use weapons that are historical reproductions of real pieces. SCA looks like fun but was one more hobby I couldn't afford to get into. Have fun in SD!

    Yup, SCA, Kingdom of the Outlands. I'm the Kingdom Thrown Weapons Marshal.

    We use duct taped rattan for swords and such because:

    1. If it splits, it turns to mush instead of splintering.
    2. All the sides are "flat" so the chance of injury is less.
    3. When you have 300 to 4000 people fighting on each side, completely blunt weapons are a good thing.

    Off to South Dakota for the weekend. Cheers, all!

    Among my other hobbies, on weekends I have fun in a Middle-Ages Reinactment group. Lately I've been doing a lot of work with the current "King" and "Queen" of our region.

    One recent (and now former) King, who is also a B5 fan, knew when I disagreed with him when I called him "Your Majesty" in that distinct Londo accent.
    hah! I run a reenactment group as well. We do 16th century Irish. I used to always envision G'Kar's "No dictator" speech when I was psyching the troops up before Battle Pageant. We perform with live-steel.
