"You can't take a picture of this. It's already gone." - Jarrett Heather

"You can't take a picture of this. It's already gone."
I'm going to have a busy day at work, but I really needed to share two thoughts with you:

First off, I wanted to say goodbye to Six Feet Under. I really think this was one of my favorite TV shows of all time. This season has not been my favorite. The characters have been suffering a little too much. But finally everyone was able to find their own peace after Nate died. I'm really happy with how most everything turned out, and the epilogue at the end of the final episode was the most satisfying and moving thing I've ever seen on a television show. It was simply perfect. They could not have ended the series any better.

Secondly, me and Danielle and Julie went to see The 40-Year-Old Virgin this weekend. I'd heard a review by David Edelstein from Slate Magazine on NPR, and he didn't have much good to say about it. So I went in with diminished expectations. I'm pleased to report that all my expectations were exceeded. The 40-Year-Old Virgin is one of the funniest movies I've ever seen... like, ever. And much like the Six Feet Under finale, this movie has a brilliant, surprising and satisfying epilogue. I actually can't wait to see this movie again, I loved it so much. You should see it. I mean, right now -- stop what you're doing and go see it.

It is good to know that practically everyone disagrees with Mr. Edelstein. If you ever meet this guy in person, please punch him in the face for me.

And go see the movie.

I agree, Six Feet Under was a fantastic show. Last night's finale was superb and I'm really going to miss the show.

I cried and cried.

Me too. I bawled like a great big baby from beginning to end, but especially at the end. Felt like somebody kicked me in the gut.

Kicked in the gut! That's how I felt too!!! But it was an oddly satisfying kick, if that makes any sense.

If anyone would have explained the ending to me, I would have said "That sounds corny or silly," but seeing it...well, it was just so emotional and moving.

I hope those actors all find new jobs...aren't they like the best actors ever? I've actually seen the guy who plays Keith in promos for some new fall show, but can't remember which one.

I get really addicted to all the HBO series (except Entourage, I haven't given that one a chance yet). But SFU was extra special.

Hi, btw. You're always looking adorable.

Matthew St. Patrick (the dude who played Kieth) is on a new drama called "Reunion" on FOX. It's scheduled to premiere in September, and then be cancelled in late November.

We've started getting into Entourage... it's really growing on me.

I can never think of them as any other character I'm afraid. They will always have a special place in my heart.

Entourage is the bomb. I've only seen is a handful of times, but I like it more and more each time. I'm thinking J and I should buy season 1 and catch up.

Aww...thanks. I was feeling and little low and that picked me up.

any chance you know the name of the song that played during the epilogue?

Ah, crap. Nate died three weeks ago. It didn't occur to me that anyone would still be waiting to see that episode.

My apologies.

The song at the end was by Sai and was called Breathe Me. The last episode was great.
