Mike's small animal & china delivery, from episode 'Paper Route Bout'.

Hey, Who Is That Guy? - profiles up-and-coming actors who have "been in stuff". Cool. Lots of very familiar faces that up until now remained nameless in my mind. Although a big omission is That Guy From That Movie (how David Letterman announced him a couple of years ago). [via danelope]

Update: sorta the same thing (but with ugly discoloured thumbnail-sized photos): Fametracker: Hey! It's That Guy!

Idea: to compile a list of current stories, meaning any tv series, book or movie with a continuing narrative that I'm reading/watching and haven't yet reached the end of:

24 (in the middle of S2)
Angel (waiting for S5)
Firefly (cancelled after ep. 10)
Hellsing (at ep. 8)
LOTR The Two Towers (1/4th remaining)
Stellvia of the Universe (at ep. 6)
Samurai Jack (at ep. 4, ignoring horrible Dutch dubs on tv)
Six Feet Under (waiting for S2)
The Day of the Triffids (only a few pages left)
The Matrix Trilogy (waiting for Revolutions)
The Quiet American (paused halfway)
The Sopranos (somewhere in S3, currently rewatching S2)
Wolf's Rain (at ep. 14)
...

Also, sort of:
Aeon Flux (still haven't seen all eps to be able to fully comprehend the story overall world view)
Ghost In The Shell: Stand Alone Complex (at ep. 14; if there is an overencompassing story arc, it's rather subtle)
...

Ooh, 24 Season 2 is about to start on BBC2!
Good, I was getting tired of seeing only season 1 reruns; the rewatchability of this show is very low....

January 2003

Voice Actor Page - searchable database of voice actors and their work, by actor, show or character name. Very extensive, although you have to resort to Google for tracking down any more info about people.

(If this weblog had inline entry titles, above this one it would say: 'Sudden realizations'...)

The X-Files' Agent Monica Reyes is Kat from Mystic Pizza.

CSI-guy is Manhunter-guy and To Live and Die in L.A.-guy.

That guy whose voice sounds so very familiar, fighting Dracula along with Young Indiana Jones in episode 2x22, is a younger, skinnier version of Angel's nemesis Holtz.

The albino kid with the electrical superpowers in Powder (1995), whose slightly awkward body language and hesitant smile I've seen somewhere before, is Young Indiana Jones.

'In the Transformers universe, "gestalt" is the unofficial generic term for a team of robots who combine together to form a larger robot.'

Newsradio quote of the day:
Dave (joking): "Hey I didn't just sign for a stolen jeep, did I, Radar?"
Beth: "Dave, I don't watch Star Trek."

I have to say, my enjoyment of the day-long Powerpuff Girls marathon on Cartoon Network is somewhat hampered by the fact that they're broadcasting the dubbed versions, with adequate-but-not-quite-as-funny Dutch voices instead of the original English.

cowboybebop_denhaag.jpg - click for larger version

Whoa... I'm watching Cowboy Bebop, episode 20 ('Pierrot le Fou'), and for a fraction of a second, I think I notice a Dutch street sign for the city of The Hague (aka Den Haag) scrolling in view during a cyberspace sequence. Rewind: yep, it's actually there. How cool is that?!

Also, sorta related: during a recent BBC documentary on the computer game industry, they showed a filler scene of a busy Japanese street where a girl walked by who just happened to wear what I'm sure was a t-shirt emblazoned with the logo of Van Vliet, a local waste disposal company. And I mean *really* local - a short walk from here! Coincidences, hmm...

If you have some time, fire up your favourite mp3-sharing utility and search and listen to 'Spock vs Q', a great mini-play between Leonard Nimoy and John De Lancie. [mentioned by Wil Wheaton a while ago]

Googlin' fun. Icheb's parents in ST:VOY episode 139 both guest-starred in X-Files episodes (as nosebleeder and firestarter, respectively). Recognized them as such even with their nasty alien make-up.

In the Dutch translation of Dexter's Lab episode 'Don't Be A Hero', Dexter actually says 'webkracht' (web-power) in reference to his new powers after turning himself into a spider-man. First time I've heard the word webkracht used for something else than Webkracht B.V., where I work.

Wow, apparently there's gonna be a live-action version of The Tick. [via danelope]

Great BTVS episode last night, as Xander found himself split into two people. How convenient that Nicholas Brendon just happens to have a real-life twin brother! I was wondering when they'd work that into the storyline somehow..
