I wish I were writing about Werner Herzog

So it's only been a few days, but I am already having misgivings about following reality show demi-celebrities on Twitter. Do I want to know that one of the choreographers/guest judges on So You Think You Can Dance is going through a very bad breakup? And that the show's executive producer called him and "may have saved [his] life"? And that one of his fellow choreographers/guest judges encourage people to Tweet their love and support for his heartbroken colleague, but I didn't, and should I feel guilty now?

In other SYTYCDverse Tweets, one of last year's contestants is falling in love, and they don't want to be falling in love, and they're angry at the person who made them not want to fall in love again, and wow I'm feeling creepily voyeuristic now.

I am also following on Twitter someone purporting to be the sister of Heidi Montag, yet I suspect an impersonator. Should I alert the authorities? Who are the relevant authorities for celebrity realness?

On the television front, following a dangerous flirtation with Jon & Kate Plus 8 and I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!, I made my triumphant return to scripted drama spectatorship last night. My rescue from the flotsam and jetsam of reality TV came in the form of Australian navy series Sea Patrol, which is just as good as it sounds. But also just as good as it needs to be, considering that the episodes feature pirates, offshore brothels, and the occasional rogue monkey. Go, Sea Patrol, go!

...it sounds just like my kids' pirate game, only with less phonics (fewer phonics?)

How 'bout that Werner Herzog? I'm told he heard a guy get eaten by a bear!

It could be your kids' pirate game, if the pirates turned out to be eco-terrorists!

Oh, yes. It's always the leftists who turn out to be violent criminals!

You totally should. How good is your German?

Also
'This is a wonderful scene from Werner Herzog's documentary "My Best Fiend: Klaus Kinski". This is a shot of Klaus flipping out on the set of Fitzcarraldo, one of several incidents that Herzog discusses in the film.'
