This week I continued the strange journey that is my Buck Rogers rewatch. It’s a mix of fascinating costumes, miniature model work, guest stars, and plots so thin it strains the idea of credulity even if you accept the premise of the show. I enjoyed the episode “Space Rockers” which had Jerry Orbach, Richard Moll, and a really fun soundtrack. What the episodes don’t have much of as season one runs out, is Erin Gray. In the pilot episode she was the head of the Earth Defense Force. I am disappointed by this for several reasons, not the least of which is the basic sexism of it.
Over the last couple of weeks we have had two unusual repeat visitors to our backyard bird feeder: female pheasants and a pigeon. I suspect that the ground cover is deep enough where the pheasants are struggling, but the pigeon (or rock dove) I have no idea. Perhaps it became disaffected with its city life and wanted to try living in the burbs for a bit. The squirrels aren’t happy with the competition.
The average length of song in this week’s mix is ten minutes. Set your laid back music listening expectations accordingly.
A small piece of blog housekeeping: I am turning off comments on posts. I’ve been getting an influx of spam comments and it’s way easier to turn them off than sort through and delete them later.
