Malachi Throne has passed away at the age of 84. May he rest in peace. Star Trek fans will remember him as Commodore Mendez in the TOS episode The Menagerie, as well as the leader of the Talosians in The Cage, and was Senator Pardek in the Star Trek: TNG two-parter Unification. He played False Face in the Adam West Batman series—I recently managed to catch an episode with him, courtesy of ME-TV. He was the narrator for the original 1977 trailer for Star Wars. A quick check of IMDB, tells me he was also the narrator of the cartoon Visionaries: Knights of the Magic Light.

In other news, sister got out of the hospital last night. And yesterday morning we got word that someone on Dad’s side of the family died. Due to our drama, he was unable to attend the wake (which would have been last night) or the funeral (which was this morning, in Louisiana). The florist we usually use for sending them something is temporarily closed due to the owner apparently being diagnosed with cancer. We eventually managed to find someone who would deliver there.

Meanwhile, Mom found Nellie’s room in the hospital. She’s only allowed ice chips now that it’s the end, but she’s still interested in slaughtering the nurses. She ordered Mom to bring her her mail—all three huge sacks of them, so she could mock the endless political things that had been stuffed in her mailbox. Mom complied.

On the Yuletide side of things, I just need to rewatch a couple more episodes of the show that I was assigned. I’ve come up with several ideas, and chunks that could go into the middle of the fanfic. I’m working on what I think the ending should be like, and a few other little, but important things, making sure I’ve got a handle on characterization, and then (since I’m currently recovering from a migraine) I’ll get started on it.

Yuletide sign-ups are now open. About Optional Details. You can find a summary of sign-up offers and requests here. Sign-ups will remain open until October 28th. I know exactly what to request, I just need to whittle down what I’m offering. For example—removing The Shadow upon seeing a couple Dear Yuletide letters, since I’ve only seen the film, and not the radio show, serial or comics. I need to find out if Dark Shadows (60’s version—since I know the 90’s version is on Youtube, but it wasn’t nominated), Pushing Daisies, and Real Ghostbusters are available online for viewing, so I can brush up on canon—been a while since I watched those.

Comcast appears to be having some serious problems. Long stretches of time when it looks like the internet’s down, or having temporary hang-ups. I can’t watch anything on Youtube or Blip, since it never loads—or if it starts to, it will constantly buffer. A call to customer service seems to think it’s on my end, when I seriously doubt that. Their server keeps dying if anyone tries to check e-mail. (Except for a brief window this morning) Earliest they can bother to check around and see if there’s something messing up is Saturday afternoon, around 11 AM-1 PM. Maybe.

To watch the trailer for The Dark Knight Rises, I had to use Download Accelerator Plus, since it kept trying even when the connection dropped out. So I watched a fuzzy quality version of the HD trailer, but at least I was able to see it.

(Yahoo is insane, because it’s been working for me at times, even when Comcast wasn’t, in certain windows of time. So I can keep tagging back in the Genosha logs. Watch the confusion!)
