How did this not suck???

I'd forgotten how often we saw Magritte

Thing that surprisingly didn't suck #1:
The trailers for Earthsea on the SciFi channel. Watched the both of 'em- the second one is a bit longer- you can find them on scifi.com, pull down on the 'forthcoming releases' to 'Earthsea', then go to 'Downloads' in that subsite. Other than the fact that everybody in the ads is white enough to compare teeth to (and thanks to ataniell93 for noticing that), the look-and-feel of the piece seems... solidly right. I have much higher hopes for this piece of work.

Thing that didn't suck #2:
Finally decided to download the 'Waiting For a Want' EP by Rufus Wainwright. Good stuff- just about enough to keep me sane waiting for the new album.
  • My experience with Earthsea is nonexistent save what I've seen on the Sci-Fi channel. It looks interesting and I'll probably watch it, but that doesn't mean I haven't gotten dour looks from the husband every time one of the trailers comes on.

    Myserious Voiceover (ooooh, mysterious): There is a place where the land meets the sea...

    Naudiz: Yeah, it's called a beach.

    Pjack: Grr!
    • It's Ursula LeGuin writing young-adult fantasy. What's not to love?
      • It looks awesome. If only their mysterious oooooh-mysterious tagline wasn't something so bloody obvious.

        Even so. Isabella Rossilini (probably spelled wrong, but I'm pre-coffee so bite me) is going to be in it. That alone is worth watching for the fap-factor.
        • It's the Science Fiction channel, what more can you expect but a dippily obvious tagline?
          • Good point. But they deliver unto me the sweet sweet Stargate, so I forgive them.
