Where to find shows.. [18 Feb 2005|05:14pm]

[ mood | curious ]


I have only just discovered a few shows recently. As some episodes aired a while back, and we don't have the discovery channel here (well I don't), I was wondering if anyone knows a good place to find the shows.

Please no flaming - and if this against the tos or something, I'm sorry - but I can see no other way to catch the show!


Shows in question:
Monster Garage,
Monster House,
Extreme Machines,
Weather Extreme.

discovering sadness... [07 Sep 2003|04:31pm]

Warning: This is a rather emotional response to a Discovery Channel programme. Constructive criticism is welcome, but no flaming please.

I finished watching a Discovery Channel documentary, and began to blubber pitifully. My parents watched me with horrified fascination, and wondered aloud why on earth I'm so affected by a silly documentary.

Scientific documentaries are informative, and occasionally mind-boggling, but it is the cultural documentaries that awaken feelings of ineffable sadness within me. They are never flashy, never showy. Just a quiet, gentle living that fades away forever, like the melting of a snowflake whose delicate pattern will never be replicated again.

tear-jerker documentaryCollapse )

Total Lunar Eclipse Happens Thursday [14 May 2003|09:36pm]

May 13, 2003 — A total eclipse of the moon will take place Thursday evening in the first eclipse of 2003.

If skies are clear, the eclipse will be clearly visible from North and South America, as well as Europe, Africa and Antarctica, according to NASA.

During a total moon eclipse, the disk around the moon can turn bright orange to blood red to dark brown and, sometimes, very dark gray.

The entire eclipse from start to finish will be visible from the eastern part of the United States; for the western half, partial phases begin before the moon rises, so the westernmost states will see a fully eclipsed moon rise.

Seen from Germany, Switzerland and Italy, the moon sets during the total phase of the eclipse. England, Ireland and France will catch all of totality since the moon sets during the final partial phases. Finally, western Spain and Portugal will see the entire eclipse, which ends shortly before the moon sets, NASA said.

May's lunar eclipse will last about three hours and fifteen minutes. The partial eclipse begins as the moon's eastern edge slowly moves into the Earth's shadow. It takes just over an hour for the moon's orbit to carry it entirely within the shadow.

And since no major volcanic eruptions have taken place recently, the moon will probably take on a vivid red or orange color during the total phase. After the total phase of the eclipse ends, it is once again followed by a partial eclipse as the Moon gradually leaves the umbral shadow.

According to NASA, there are anywhere from 0 to 3 lunar eclipses, either partial or total, each year. The last time three total lunar eclipses took place in one calendar year was in 1982. Partial eclipses slightly outnumber total eclipses by 7 to 6.

For more info on exactly where the eclipse can be seen,

American Chopper [08 May 2003|10:38pm]

[ mood | giddy ]

I'm totally in LOVE with American Chopper. I was in Las Vegas on vacation, and this guy in front of me in line had an Orange County Cycles shirt - I almost pounced him! I gasped, and he turned around. I said "dude, you shirt is awesome. I watch the show and I'm totally amazed." Get this - he told me he WORKS for them! OMG I freaked! Guy turned out to be really cool.

Damn, I saw that shit when the Cody bike got knocked over (RIGHT after ther Celtic bike got knocked over, too) - I was pissed! Damn people gotta strap shit down!

But, I gotta say that the "JET" bike is my favorite so far. When the Pauls and fam took their Florida trip, Paul Jr. rode around on the Black Widow (::drools at bike AND Paul Jr.::) and Paul Sr. was on "JET". Damn that was cool.

I LOVE that damn show! I don't watch a lotta TV, so when I do, it's Discovery Channel, Food Network, or Comedy Central.

Discovery Channel is killa :-)
