“Once upon a time there was a boy named John and John was an astronaut. He lived in a far away place called Earth which is so far away you’ve never heard of it. One day when John was out doing astronaut things a big, blue wormhole gobbled him up and spat him out at the far end of the universe.

Would it just be “Happy 100th post!” like Mrs. Uncommon Geek jokingly suggested?

At the time of this post, I am in the middle of writing a review of the TV series “Farscape.” Whenever I sit down to write a review of something that I truly and honestly love and enjoy, I find it extremely difficult to focus my thoughts on the aspects of the thing that I like about what I’m wanting to review. I mean, what do I focus on? How do I focus on just that one thing long enough to talk about it for that paragraph or two? (more…)
