Your apparently more-than-weekly Lileks Watch

Up at Dimwit Farms, MN, James Lileks, who has just discovered "Firefly" and anointed it the Bestest Show of All Time That Ever Was, mentions that he used to really love the Borg as villains until they were ruined for him by "cozening interlocutors". Whatever you say, Jimbo!

He also complains about a coloring book (yes, that's right, because he is the sort of person who sees his role in life as the person who complains about coloring books) his daughter got about famous women, because they are a bunch of ugmos: "dour" novelists, Eleanor Roosevelt looking like a mid-size car, Golda Meir "wearing the ugliest dress possible". The authors even had the temerity to include that talentless hack Gertrude Stein, which causes Lileks to whip out his favorite malediction, "fargin'". Like Ronald Reagan throwing down his reading glasses, you know Jimbo is serious when he busts open a crate of "fargin'"s. He even manages to complain that one famous woman, who he knows to be an ugmo, is not portrayed as ugly enough: "Amelia Earhart in an illustration that had been run through a Photoshop De-Horseify filter" caps off his dislike of this idiotic coloring book that alleges to portray famous women, and yet has nary a picture of Madonna or Cindy Crawford. Damn liberal school system!
