Out of the Blue

Well, if Manstovia is to be relocated, we're taking it out in style, as yesterday I took delivery of the rotisserie unit for my grill, and am gearing up to learn the art of rotation assisted grilling. I was recently reading something grilling guru Steven Raichlen wrote about being mystified that more Americans do not do the rotisserie thing, and it struck a chord, so when I saw the rotisserie on sale, I could not resist. My grill has a separate coals holder for this, and I'm not completely picturing how it will go together, but I'm looking forward to finding out. The other neat thing is this has a light attached to it: I'll just need to work through using it safely, as it's not weatherproof (but neither is the rotisserie).

I'm pretty sure a lot more people died on screen in Star Wars (and they do legos for those) than any episode of FF.

But sex! So scary!!!!

Nin, not just sex, LESBIAN SEX.

And, yeah, no one got decapitated in Firefly (although there were some gruesome deaths in Serenity).

On the whole though, I get why they made this choice. Firefly is oriented towards adults, Star Wars towards kids (esp the Clone Wars cartoons). It's why there will unfortunately be any Aliens Lego sets, even though I'm pining for alien and marine minifigs (with pulse rifles!) and models of the Sulaco, dropship, and APC. The sets write themselves don't they?

Minifigure sets:
9990 Med Lab
9991 The Queen's Nest
9992 Facehugger attack!
9993 Queen Battle on Sulaco

Microscale sets:
11220 Sulaco
11221 Dropship
11222 APC

Technic sets:
8880 Power Loader
8881 Alien Queen
8882 Sentry Gun

Of course, the new LotR sets somewhat fly in the face of this thinking. But I guess even those movies don't deal with adult themes, even though they're scary and violent.
