It's said that you learn something new every day. What did you learn today?

While watching a rerun of law and order svu, I learned from detective Fin Tutuola that if a suspect has left behind a urine sample in a bottle, you can't get dna from the urine -- but you might get skin cells from the inside neck of the bottle, because "sometimes it's a pretty tight fit......"


Also, the other night talking in bed with Jim, I learned that the Sandman really loves cats, and he used to take them with him when he traveled around to sprinkle the sand.

Then he figured out what they were doing to the sand......

The Rufus Wainwright version of Hallelujah just came up in the random mix we have on. It stopped us both from what we were doing, and when it was over, we turned to each other and, at the same time said, "Nice version - but nothing beats the original." So, we had to have that, and then I had to have the Tim Minchin version, and then the John Cale.

And of course, then I had to have the Austin Lounge Lizards Leonard Cohen's Day Job.

Now I think I need First We Take Manhattan.....

I had this interview bookmarked and finally got around to listening today.

Viggo Mortensen: A Life in Pictures

In front of a packed audience, Viggo Mortensen speaks about the process of selecting scripts and how he approaches his many on-screen characters – from playing a Russian gangster in David Cronenberg’s Eastern Promises to Aragon in the Lord of the Rings films.

Lately, I've been recording and watching Sea Hunt. I used to absolutely love this show as a kid (probably it was just the idea of being underwater, more than any plot points.) It is dated in a way that makes Jim and I try to put a bag over our heads several times an episode. And yet, I am fascinated and amused.

I realize I was little in the 50's, but I can't remember that the women I lived with (I grew up multi-generational) cried every time you looked at them. In fact, I think that whoever was perpetrating the mayhem would have been more likely to be the one crying.

Anyway, lately there have been some amazing lines of dialog that just have me rolling on the floor, and I think I may post them to share.

Last nights episode, for instance, ended with Mike declaring:
"well, I lost my hood, but I got my man!"
