Between the Darkness and the Light

This morning I heard that G'Kar (Andreas Katsulas) has passed away. I know I saw him in many other things besides Babylon 5 (including Star Trek: TNG, Alien Nation, and Max Headroom), but between the makeup and the incredible acting that made that character one of the most complex, compelling, and intriguing ever written for television, I'll always think of him as G'Kar.

I was unable to wake up this morning to go to the gym. I don't understand why I was able to get up early every morning to go to work, but I can't seem to do it now to better myself. SIGH. I don't blame Boston Legal, which is the only reason I stay up late on Tuesdays. I am a little sore from yesterday's workout, though, so maybe it's better to rest the muscles a bit.

For two years in a row we have been thwarted in our attempt to have Sushi on Valentine's Day. Last year we went to Todai, only to find it had closed; this year Ichi Ban turned out to have closed. SIGH, again. So we had plain Chinese at an old Phoenix restaurant that's moved to a new location. It's the very first Chinese restaurant I ever ate at which did not serve "family style." Barb and I had to share on our appetizer plates. The food was pretty good, though. I'm just sorry the restaurant that used to be in that building closed. It was a nice gourmet/wine place where we'd eaten once and the food was spectacular.

You scored as Babylon 5 (Babylon 5). The universe is erupting into war and your government picks the wrong side. How much worse could things get? It doesn't matter, because no matter what you have your friends and you'll do the right thing. In the end that will be all that matters. Now if only the Psi Cops would leave you alone.

My, isn't that ironic?

Dang! I really liked Katsulas as G'kar. :-(

"No one here is exactly what they seem"--I still remember those words from the B5 pilot. Damn. Katsulas was a hell of an actor. Thanks for the headsup, I doubt if I would have found out otherwise. He's the second cast member to die, IIRC.

He was. His voice was spectacular (and he could make lines resound with such depth of feeling they became much more rich and real).

I loved how he and Peter Jurasik played off one another.

It's gotten me in the mood to watch the whole thing again, really. I still don't have Season 5, which, for all its flaws, had some great Jurasik/Katsulas scenes.

I have a friend to whom synchronicity isn't just a song title, it's a way of life. He just wrote me this:

this is weird cause right before i checked my email i was thinking
about Narns dying in that episode where the station is invaded by troops
loyal to Clark. i have no idea why i was thinking about that, it just popped into my head. then i dialed up and checked my email. and i didn't know he had passed away.
