FACEBOOK Been recapping the Summer eps, some of the August stuff posted in the gallery of Liv went onto Crystal's Facebook - some Nat and Em ones may have made their way in there, too. :D | The 800 x 600 ones of Liv, Nat, Em and Doris from June will go on the AUSXIP galleries in the next couple days. The rest of this year is mostly covered, I'm working my way through the eps to see what I've missed. January shall be fun to revisit, as well as stuff on YouTube from '08.

VENICE! | Producer Crystal Chappell and Producer/Writer Kim Turrisi answer fan questions about the upcoming web series VENICE. Part 2. Visit the Venice site!

ORLAGH | Orlagh finished reading Messenger of Truth: A Maisie Dobbs Novel for me last night (yes, it was just the two of us... and my earphones :D). Another outstanding Maisie Dobbs novel where the pieces of a murder mystery fall into place marvellously. I love the depth the character gets as Maisie works her cases, how the struggles of the people around her help her overcome her own past - well, gradually. Orlagh does all types of accents with her usual brilliance, my favorite bits were when she switched between a character's American English and Maisie's proper British English. Her "Georgina" and the entire bohemian scene was well done. Amazing how much can be done with just a voice - with her, there's no need for a full cast. Just terrific. | Borrow the book at your local library, or grab it from audible, or amazon.

Click any of the thumbnails to get to the December '08 galleries.

Then there are the January '08 episodes that are key to understanding Otalia... Loved the 01/15/08 episode: Olivia learns that she's out of options. Natalia is really upset with Olivia for meddling - remember, she has no clue that Olivia is dying. Natalia convinces Gus to elope. Ava helps her mother come up with a desparate plan to get Gus to stay - these scenes had me remember bits from Summer '07, when Olivia "helped" Ava getting Coop's attention.
