The World Has Lost a Brilliant Mind

I'd just like to take a moment to pay homage to one of the greatest minds ever known, Mr. Steve Jobs. He passed yesterday due to pancreatic cancer. As I type from my MacBook Air, I am truly saddened and most appreciative for the countless ways he improved modern life as we know it. How many people can truly say "I changed the world" and it be true.

My Dark Passenger Is Restless

I'm funny about tv. I once went 3 years and turned on the tv in my apartment a handful of times, the Phillies playoffs and World Series games becoming the exceptions. Well back in January when I was in The ATL I made up for lost tv-time like a banshee with two particular shows that I am now addicted to. Supernatural is one, but that is for another post.  I had been told by friends about a particular show that they just knew I'd love, Dexter. My beloved friend Peanut and his partner where so excited for me to watch it, they bought the whole damn series on their Apple TV. And instantly, like a moth to a flame, a crack addict to a 1/4 rock, I sat and watched ALL 5 SEASONS BACK TO BACK! Yes, 12 episodes a day for 5 days in a row! Now, I do at least have the common decency to be embarrassed, but still, I'm ok with it. Because I LOVE ME SOME DEXTER MORGAN! And Harry! And Deb, and Masuka, and Angel, and Rita, and Harrison. Hell, I even loved Lila. Well, at first. Luemen for some reason just got on my nerves. Anywho... Season 6 just premiered last Sunday and I haven't yet been able to see it and my own Dark Passenger who hungers for the show is very restless.
(The Death XIII card from Tarot of the Sweet Twilight. Doesn't the girl look just like Lila!)

If you don't know anything about the show, please be advised, it is not for everyone. It is about a vigilante serial killer. The plots and storyline and characters are so well written and complex. If you are the faint of heart or easily offended you most likely are not on this blog, but just in case, Dexter is probably not the show for you. But if you are a fan, then you know how I am longing to curl up on the couch and reconnect with America's favorite serial killer!
