 I'm loving the overcast skies and rain we've been getting as of late.  I love Austin when the weather is like this.  It actually makes me want to take my nerd pod body out of the house.  It makes the colors of nature brighter against the urban intrusion when walking in my neighborhood.  I hung out last night and caught up on the "Ghost Hunters" and "Destination Truth" episodes that I had missed.  I especially loved the last couple of GH episodes.  That show keeps getting better and better for me.  This past Wednesday's episode was extra special for me.  They went with the old school let's-investigate-a-house-terrorizing-people case that I loved about the early seasons of the show.  They were able to capture some very interesting EVPs as well.  They had some activity that made pine for a full spectrum camera or something that wasn't IR so I could see the bursts of light that they are talking about.  "Destination Truth" is actually growing on me despite the jackass that hosts that show.  I think he does a huge diservice to the field of cryptozoology but I'll take what I can get.  I like the team that he has and they seem much more even minded than him.  I'm trying not to be harsh on him though because I think he comes from a good place.  Deep down, he's just a big geek trying to have a show that will make people excited about Yetis and I can't knock that shit.  Yetis are cool.  

I listened to some Coast to Coast last night and read more on my Ginsberg biography.  I need another vacation.

Okay, so I've read a lot about you and Izzy enjoying GH...and please please don't stomp all over me for asking this, but I can't help but be curious: do you like it because you believe in ghosts, or because you enjoy the drama, or because it's fun to watch whether ghosts are real or not, etc? I tend to be (accidentally) one of the party-pooper nonbelievers when it comes to ghost hunts, but I've never watched the show and I know a lot of people who seem to like it, people I wouldn't think are into ghost stories. Is there something else to the show that makes it very watchable?

That is good to know, and it makes the show sound way more interesting than the title implies. I consider myself educated. Maybe I'll record it next week.
