My Sister's Blog and Stuff

So, I am so proud of my big sister, who has launched her idea of More to Love into a fledgling empire. She's got a blog and two websites, a book deal, and many more wonderful prospects. Someday, maybe I can be her chauffeur!

See all the excitement at Elizabeth Patch's Sketchbook Blog, More to Love website, and Elizabeth Patch dot com.

Her Book, More to Love, will be available this December at

Rant on On-Line Television Programs - MOVE MEDIA PLAYER Sucks

I have been trying to catch a few missed episodes of favorite shows by going to the networks' on-line program offerings. Most networks offer full versions of some or all of their episodes online. However, a FEW networks have switched to a NON-FLASH "New Full Episode" MOVE MEDIA PLAYER that has to be installed in order to play their shows. BUT no matter what I do I can't get the MOVE MEDIA PLAYER to work for Firefox OR MSIE. And the player doesn't even PRETEND to work with Google Chrome. And then they have the gall to SELL their shows on iTunes instead of just GIVING THEM AWAY. COME ON! It's as if you don't WANT to be popular!

The NETWORKS THAT SUCK (because of  the MOVE MEDIA non-standard video player) are:

ABC Sucks - Life on Mars, Lost, Greys Anatomy
FOX Sucks - Bones, Prison Break, House, Family Guy, King of the Hill, Kitchen Nightmares

The NETWORKS THAT ARE COOL (because they offer full episodes that work with all browsers) are:

NBC is COOL- 30 Rock, Battlestar Galactica, Heroes, My Name is Earl, the Office
CBS is Cool - CSI Crime Scene Investigation, Two and a Half  Men, Original Star Trek remastered (nice resolution but missing many full episodes)
Showtime is COOL  - Dexter, Californication, Weeds (but they don't offer many episodes and the online versions of shows are heavily censored)
USA Network is COOL - Monk, House (but TURN OFF  that  annoying auto-play)

In Summary, the MOVE MEDIA PLAYER sucks and so, by association, do the networks that use this stupid program. So if a station asks you to "INSTALL OUR NEW PLAYER" because it does all these wonderful things, DON'T - and then email the network with a link to this posting.

Now, enjoy this from one of the good guys!!
