All We Want to Do is Eat Your Brains*

First, let's get the obvious out of the way: this blog entry is NOT about running. Not even a little. However, it's about something else that's equally near-and-dear to my heart: world peace global warming lemurs television. If you like television, too, and particularly sci-fi and fantasy television (you know, shows about things with lasers and/or that go bump in the night), you owe it to yourself to check out the Television Zombies cult TV podcast and blog. TVZ describes itself as follows:

Discussing the best science fiction and fantasy shows on television. Each week, Tina, Chris, Jeff, Jonah and special guests discuss the latest news and happenings in the world of science fiction and fantasy television, as well as review new episodes of favorite (and hated) shows. From Lost to Doctor Who to Battlestar Galactica, we look at the latest, greatest and lamest (we’re looking at you, Bionic Woman!) and give an irreverent view of new TV. Bad TV may be a brain eating monster lurking in the dusty corners of your living room, but Television Zombies are along for the fight!
I discovered TVZ about a year ago and quickly became a fan. Now, in addition to being a fan, I'm also a contributor. You can check out my first review, but I suggest you take some time to check out the site as a whole, and to listen to the podcast; it's time well spent.

*We're not unreasonable - I mean, no one's gonna eat your eyes.


  1. Hey, Dan, it's been ages since you've updated. How's the training going these days? Best wishes.

  2. I know, it's been forever (both since I've blogged, and since I've worked out). I've trikked a bit, but nothing regular enough to be considered 'training' - just a couple of Sunday jaunts through the park. I really need (and want) to get back into the shape I was in the first time I finished C25k.

    Thank you for asking about it, though, because it's giving me the motivation to get back on the stick again. With the kids ending their school year this week, now is the perfect time for me to start running again. My mornings won't have to be quite so early.

  3. Ok, glad to hear that you're thinking of getting back on the road. I used to follow your blog when I was getting into running about 18 months ago...then I suddenly stopped due to illness and never got back into it.

    Anyway, now that I've started again in the last couple of weeks, I thought I'd check out your blog and see how you're doing.

    I just wanted to let you know that getting back into it is a lot easier than you might think.

    About 18 months ago I could run for 30 minutes, and I'd thought that I'd lost all that fitness now (plus I weigh more), but somehow I can go on for a couple of miles without too much difficulty. It's all psychological, really. That said, ease back into it and see how you go. You'll be doing 5k before you know it.

    As this is one of the most popular running blogs on the net, you really owe it to your readers to get back on track! Everyone loves to follow your progress.

    All the best!
