Sites of note and other random stuff
Bitch Ph.D. put up a new link to a site that's a resource for emergency contraception. If you ever find yourself, or someone you care about, in the position to need it, the site has a directory of medical providers where you can get it. Too bad you can't get it over the counter, thanks to this guy. Anyway, I'm going to add it my sidebar as well.
Getting less serious, I accidentally typed in www.fungo.com instead of www.fungo.blogspot.com, and it leads to a Japanese restaurant that appears to specialize in sandwiches. I think I need to go to this restaurant if I ever go to Japan.
ETA: A few other things not really deserving their own posts:
This is just gross. How would you like to be that fisherman who found those thousands of used condoms floating in the lake? And also, who the hell is flushing their condoms down the toilet in the first place?
NBC has apparently decided that Law & Order has reached critical mass at three shows, as they are cancelling the newest permutation, "Trial By Jury." Also cancelled: a whole bunch of other shows I also don't watch.
New for next year:
"My Name is Earl," featuring Jason Lee ("Chasing Amy") as a downtrodden lottery winner. This could be good, as Jason Lee kind of rules.
Martha Stewart's Apprentice knockoff. Hmmm. No, I don't think I'll be watching that.
Gospel singer Amy Grant stars in "Three Wishes," a reality show where she travels across the country trying to transform lives by paying medical bills, making dreams come true and the like. Wow, I think they may have found a show I want to watch even less than American Idol.
"E-Ring," a Jerry Bruckheimer production with Dennis Hopper and Benjamin Bratt, about life in the Pentagon. Could be good, could be bad. Dennis Hopper is cool in a creepy way, and Benjamin Bratt is hot. But the Pentagon is boring. So we'll have to see.
"Fathom," about a creepy new form of sea life. No, no, no.
"Inconceivable," a medical show set in a fertility clinic. I'm sorry, but are they kidding with this one? The article says it's a drama, but the title is rather ridiculous, because no one will be able to say it without talking like Vizzini from The Princess Bride, and it'd be kind of hard to take the show seriously. Also, that title is just a little too precious, I think. Beyond that, I'm not sure how this show would work - either it will be a cloying, inspirational show (in which case I'll want to watch it about as much as the Amy Grant show), or it will go in the other direction and enrage the James Dobson types (who will get the vapors over the fact that all those poor little embryos might get thrown away), and god, we will never hear the end of it.
