* Anyone else watching or have watched The Kettering Incident? We are LOVING it. But I have this huge soft gaping hole spot in my heart for all things Australian. This is set in Tasmania. Who would like to repat with me? Or New Zealand? I watch endless episodes of Annabelle Langbein just for the scenery and the swooniness of her kiwi. I was bound and determined as a young person to move down under or save 100K and apply for New Zealand citizenship. It consumed me for several years. I had a long-term Aussie bf named, of course, Kim. I was in love with all things Down Under. Still am, I suppose. Anyway, try The Kettering Incident. I'm thinking that those who liked Stranger Things will like this.

And here's a very funny joke -

The scene is North Africa, at the height of fierce battles in World War II. An Australian junior officer meets a British senior officer on the front line. “Good morning young man,” says the British officer, “Did you come here to die?”

“No Sir,” replies the young Australian, “I came yesterday”.

* Consumed with Cave as of late. It's almost his birthday. Enjoy this old picture -


The main chara in The Kettering Incident is always wearing a Saints t-shirt. Nick and Chris recorded a song together many moons ago. When it was suggested they make an accompanying video, Nick asked, what's on MTV? What do Americans like? And the answer was T&A. So here ya go -

I got it! LOL!

I will have to check out Netflix to see if there y carry The Kettering Incident. What is it about?

Down Under! Me too! From the time I was a child. I was utterly fascinated with all things Aussie. Even thought about heading over as a nanny when I was in my early twenties. The heat would have killed me, though.

I'm behind on my email, lj, all things internet. Sorry. Wish I had a good excuse. :-?

Hahaha!

It isn't on Netflix yet, M. Let me finish it before you go looking for it!

A nanny in Australia - that would have been quite the adventure!

Are you writing, though?

You can answer me privately, but could you please tell me -- does "The Kettering Incident" actually have some supernatural or alien stuff going on, or is it all a tease? (I am not really a fan of watching "man's inhumanity to man" stuff, so if it's all secretly a serial killer, it's not my cuppa. Throw in something spooky, however, and I'm all over it!)

Don't need any more details than that, I just want to know what I'm getting into :)

Oh, that angel photo <3

THAT, m'dear, is the appropriate question. And I don't know. Yet. I'll pm you when we finish the season. If it turns out to be "human" I don't think it's going to be inhumanity ala Hannibal...but rather something to do with the environment.

You have watched Fringe?
