The Random Musings of an Attention-Seeking Author – 01/03/2010

Well, it’s raining again….the dark, dreary downpour that never seems to let up, eh? Nothing really much TO do today….so this, I write.

  1. I’m currently penning a story about a guy from my school – it’s part of a project I took on to pass the time. I challenged myself to write a one-page story for every single person in my Grade….and after the better part of a year, I have about 9 left to do. Which says less about the hugeness of the task and more about my short attention span.
  2. Watched the Manchester United vs. Aston Villa football match – the Carling Cup Final. MU fought on to a well-deserved 2-1 victory….and I screamed in joy like a little girl.
  3. Preparation for my first year of Uni (Law at UQ)….and I’m feeling a little nervous. Any tips, guys?

Hopefully something new happens later. Check back here for further updates!

Do YOU have any tips for a new student at UQ? Leave a comment and tell us about it!

An Observer Sighting….but NOT in FRINGE!!

Ok, introduction first. FRINGE is a science fiction TV series by the creator of LOST and writers of TRANSFORMERS…..and it’s pretty freakin’ sweet! It has been described as a hybrid of The X-FilesAltered StatesThe Twilight Zone, and Dark Angel, garnering millions of viewers and favourable reviews.

Well, then, as part of the mystery that is FRINGE, there is a man that appears in every episode, if only for a few seconds. He is known as “The Observer”, and trying to spot him in every episode makes for a great pastime, and only adds to the awesomeness of FRINGE.

See Fringe: The Observer Mashup for clips of him in each FRINGE episode.

As part of the viral campaign for FRINGE, the producers have also put him in real life events and shows, such as in the MBL Allstar game (The Observer Guy from Fringe in MBL Allstar Game), and American Idol (The Observer on American Idol (From Fringe)). However, it seems that he isn’t only staying in real life events or only on FOX shows….he made the switch to NBC! (Gasp!)

It seems that The Observer also appeared in a NUMB3RS episode, “Scan Man” (5×05), in the background while FBI Agent Don Eppes was talking to his FBI psychologist. Below is, released for the first time, actual documented proof!

Dun dun dummmmm!

You can spot him just to the left of the screen as he passes by.

For those who have the episode, the entire appearance is from 37:49 to 37:51.

[UPDATE]: I found another one! This time, it’s in the newly released episode of NCIS: Los Angeles, “Blood Brothers” (1×18). And here is the screenshot to prove it:

He’s standing with his back to the camera, in the middle of the screen.

Pretty weird, huh?

What do YOU think? Are the Observers arriving, or worse, have they taken over?!??
