Television ramblings

Next months Foxtel guide arrived this week.

Considering how much I pay for Foxtel, I actually watch very little of it. It's not because there's not much that I want to watch, it's more that I can never remember to watch the things I want to watch.

Starting this month I'm going to start putting reminders in my Palm device, so hopefully I actually watch the stuff I want, instead of flipping channels half way through and realizing I missed it.

Anyway, the Foxtel mag is an interesting read.

The Sopranos starts on Arena Wednesday 7th. I've heard a lot of good reports about the show, so I think I'll try and give it a go. That means remembering to tape it since Wednesday is usually poker.

Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda starts Saturday's, 6:30pm on Fox 8. I've heard a lot of good stories about it from Sue so I'll watch it as well. (Hmm, Kevin Sorbo in leather!). Following it is a show called Mutant X, so I'll probably watch it as well.

Movies:
* Bram Stoker's Dracula premieres August 9 on Encore (9, 20 and 30 August)
* Perfect Blue on World Movies, August 2 & 3.
* Bedknobs and Broomsticks on the Disney Channel (18, 23 and 31 August)
* The Dam Busters on Fox Classics, August 18. Scott recomends this one, so I've going to try and watch it.
* Masters of the Universe staring Dulph Lundgren, premieres August 15 on Encore. Also plays 16, 23 and 24 August. And, yes it's the He-Man movie!
* Pitch Black on Showtime 10, 11, 27 and 28 August. I've been meaning to watch this for a while and never gotten around to it.
* The Secret Garden on Disney 4, 17, 18, 22, 30 and 31 August
* Titan A.E. on Showtime 11 abd 23 August.
* Toy Soldiers premieres August 7 on Encore, also on 8, 17 and 21 August.

I'm sure a number of people are going to be happy that the ESPN sport channel starts on Foxtel in September. From what I've heard it comes with either the Fox Footy channel, or the Entertainment Plus package.

Channel [V] specials:
* 15 August - Sum 41: Introduction to Destruction
* 19 August - No Doubt Music Marathon
* 26 August - Foo Fighters Live at VHQ
* 20 August - Incubus: Morning View Sessions

MusicMAX specials:
* 8 August - Behind the Music: The Police
* 9 August - Behind the Music: Elton John
* 13 August - Behind the Music: Billy Idol
* 15 August - Behind the Music: Garbage
* 18 August - Sting: Brand New Day
* 23 August - Behind the Music: Alanis Morissette
* 30 August - Behind the Music: Ricky Martin

And of course that's just the things that grab my attention. There'll also be the regular's like StarGate that I'll have to make sure I watch.

Of course I doubt very much I'll get to watch all of this, but at least I know of the things I want to watch. It's a start.

Hon, if you wouldn't mind taping bram stoker's dracula for me, I would be greatly appreciative. If you've still got a vcr and all, that is... I can even give you money or buy a tape for you to use. I have to read the book as some random part of assessment, and wouldn't mind watching the movie as well, j.i.c. there's an a/v part like last semester's did.

If that's okay...

I can do that. I actually have two VCR's at the moment. I bought a new one a little while ago to replace Wayne's in the front room. I love K-mart! I think I mentioned it in a previous LJ entry.

However, you'll have to do me a favour. Remind me closer to the date so I actually remember.

*hugs* - just because!

I love knowing who has Foxtel so I can get them to tape things for me. I used to tape things out at Mason's parents but his father insists on doing something strange to the video so I got sick of having to fix everything each time I was out there.

Do you get the History channel?

I get just about everything. The History Channel is actually one of the main reasons I got Foxtel in the first place. They do some brilliant doco's.

So what do you want me to tape for you?

Re:
Anything about Geisha, in fact probably anything about Japanese history. If you give me a yell I'll organise to get you some tapes

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
