This site is running dangerously low on bandwidth.
If you would like to help me cover the costs of an upgrade, I'd be forever in your debt.
As it is right now, I can barely cover the costs of my tuition.
Any amount you could spare would mean the world to me.

Thanks.

 


   My Thoughts
Okay, this is my first crack at a female on this site, but Jorja is wonderful and definately deserves her place here. She is beautiful, talented, and I'm sure you all may know what is coming next, she has a great voice. I truly love the sound of it. It seems to have such character and is able to hold such a presence on its own. Not that voices are a woman's only attribute, but a large one. For me anyways. I just love the work she has been able to do as Sara Sidle on the show, "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation". The character that she plays is by far the best on the series, and one of the primary reasons that I watch the show as faithfully as I do.

It just wouldn't be right if I didn't update my thoughts every now and again. After all, they do change over time, by seeing more of this wonderful woman and her acting roles. I figured that I'd mention that I saw her small role in the film "Memento". I was really looking forward to seeing this movie, and though she isn't a major role, she is still an important part in the plot. As always, she looked gorgeous. Despite her limited screen time, I thoroughly enjoyed the flick.

A while back, I had mentioned that I would really like to see her work on ER, because I'm really into that show - especially the older episodes. Unfortunately for me, the older episodes are not in regular syndication, so it's very hard to see them. Lucky for me though, I happened to be flipping around the television last night, and what do I see? None other than Jorja Fox herself, on ER! I was quite pleased. Though she didn't have the most important role, she did find herself onscreen quite a few times.

Wow! What news I just learned - Jorja Fox fired from CBS's top rated series. I couldn't believe it when I heard it. I was shocked, saddened, angry... now I just think it is a crying shame. Reason's sited as 'Breach of Contract', though true, I feel unwarrented. She failed to show up for one day's shooting over a pay despute, and to set an example to any other actors who may be looking for a salary hike, they can her. Just like that. Make's me wonder why they would more than likely anger the viewers of such a popular show. It couldn't be good for ratings. Not sure if it will help, but I sent a little message to one of the show's top executives. And signed a couple petitions.

Another update here. Apparently the whole 'firing fiasco' was one big misunderstanding. Not too sure what really went on behind closed doors, but I'm rather happy to know she's back on the show. Makes me wonder if it was all just a ratings ploy or not. Whichever - I won't be complaining.


 


   My Collection
The only Jorja Fox related items that I currently own are four "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" books. Thought not really Jorja Fox items, I'll still include them because they include her alter ego, Sara Sidle.

Double Dealer, 308 page paperback by Max Allan Collins.
This is the first book that I read. The back reads:

Meet the little known and even less understood heroes of police work in Las Vegas -- the forensic investigators. Led by veteran Gil Grissom, the remarkable team assigned to the Criminalistics Bureau's graveyard shift -- including Catherine Willows, Warrick Brown, Nick Stokes, and Sara Sidle -- must combine cutting-edge scientific methods and old-fashioned savvy as they work to untangle the evidence behind the yellow police tape. While Nick and Catherine investigate a newly discovered fifteen-year-old murder, Grissom and the rest of the team must uncover the indentity of a cold-blooded killer -- one whose execution-style, "double-tap" signature has provoked the interest of FBI agent Rick Culpepper.

I really enjoyed reading this book, which for me, is quite remarkable. As a bit of a back story, I pretty much gave up reading convention fiction stories near the start of highschool. I just didn't have the time, nor the will to do it. On my last year of highschool (for Christmas) I was given this book and started to read it during one of my marathon baths. I was really enjoying it, and got through it rather quickly (mind you that was quite a few baths later though!).

Body of Evidence, 315 page paperback by Max Allan Collins.
I was so impressed with Double Dealer, that I went looking for another book. This was the one I found. The back reads:

Early one quiet Monday morning, in an empty executive office, assistant Janice Denard begins to prepare for another ordinary day - but instead discovers evidence of horrific crimes, shocking photographs left abandoned in a printer. Now, with the help of the LVPD's computer forensics experts, the CSI team must track through hardware and software, deception and deceit to find the perpetrators. But while Willows and Stokes investigate the once well-hidden secrets now revealed in print, Grissom, Brown, and Sidle uncover new and disturbing evidence in a high-profile media case...the brutal murder of the Mayor's long-missing secretary.

I didn't enjoy this book nearly as much as the first. In fact, it has been my least liked book of the bunch. To me, it seemed like it took forever to get anywhere in this book, and when it finally started to move, the end was upon me and was wrapped up far too quick. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that it was so bad that I couldn't read (though the numerous spelling errors didn't help!), I did read it, and am glad I did, I just don't think I'll be reading it again.

Sin City, 338 page paperback by Max Allan Collins.
After finishing, Body of Evidence, I was ready to find another book. So, I went down to my local bookshop, and found two that I didn't have yet. I picked them both up. This was the first of the two that I read. The back reads:

"If anything happens to me, get this cassette to the police," Lynn Pierce told her friends the night she disappeared without a trace. Pierce seemed to be a devout Christian, devoted wife and mother -- but she left behind a recording of her husband threatening to cut her into little pieces.

Jenna Patrick was a professional stripper who said she was trying to get out of the sex trade and into junior college. She wound up strangled to death in a locked room in the back of the club where she worked. What could these two women possibly have had in common -- aside from the fact that they are both victims of homicide?

Find out as Grissom, Willows, and the rest of the CSI team track down a sordid trail of secret lives and private dances, from the saintly to the seedier side of Sin City.

I was happy to find out that this was a much better read than my previous attempt at Body of Evidence. Though it still wasn't as good as Double Dealer, I found it to be quite enjoyable. Not a substitute for the show, but a close second.

Cold Burn, 303 page paperback by Max Allan Collins.
This is the second book I read of the two I bought together. The back reads:

Remote. Peaceful. Picturesque. That's how the Mumford Mountain Hotel bills itself in its brochure, and it lives up to its billing -- most of the time. But this year, the hotel is hosting a prestigious conference for the study of forensic science, and the organizers have extended CSI head Gil Grissom an invitation he can't refuse. Joined by fellow investigator Sara Sidle, Grissom leaves the department in the capable hands of Catherine Willows and heads east. But he and Sara soon find themselves in all too familiar territory -- and back in Las Vegas, Catherine, Warrick Brown, and Nick Stokes have uncovered trouble of their own.

This is my favourite of the four books that I've read to date. Though I did find many spelling errors in this one as well, I was able to overlook that fact because I really enjoyed the story. Probably because it takes Grissom and Sara up north where they are faced with solving the crime in something they have no experiance in - snow. To do this, they need the help of a Canadian CSI expert. Being a Canadian, I noticed myself smirking a few times at the way us Canadians are thought of, but not overly so. It outlines some really interesting winter crime scene techniques - one of the most interesting parts of the book.
