Folk, I have to apologize for my lack of commitment in writing for the last few weeks. I have been a little distracted since I found out that my company is closing our office and moving it to
So here are some random thoughts for this Wednesday:
Started to watch the Incredibles last night, I fell asleep 60 minutes in, fantastic movie from what I saw and the plot of conformity and rewarding mediocrity really struck a chord with me. I can’t wait to see the rest of the movie tonight.
The fourth season of Seinfeld is coming out on DVD on May 18th. Frankly the best season in the whole bunch if you ask me. So many classic episodes in this one season but as I tell my wife, every episode is a classic.
Senator Harry Reid has been watching too many Dirty Harry movies and thinks that by shutting down the Senate and telling the Republicans to make his day he somehow is helping the country. Earth to Harry, your nothing more then an obstructionist who is fighting a losing battle. The filibuster of judicial nominees was something old Tommy Daschle cooked up and look what it did for him, he was thrown out on his ass. The standard for judicial nominees for years in the Senate was a straight up or down vote and that is the way it should be.
Tivo has signed a deal with Comcast to provide their DVR software to Comcast. This is really just a grab by Tivo for some ad revenue. I have 2 DVR boxes with Cox and can record about 60 hours on each. It costs me an extra 10 bucks a month and I have no advertising embedded in my DVR menu. Tivo costs at least 12 bucks a month and every time you open the DVR menu to find a show you had recorded you are bombarded by embedded advertising. I think this is a bad deal for Comcast who really just wanted the Tivo name to lend credibility to its own DVR offering. Glad I am not a Comcast customer.
I really miss Hockey. I am huge sports fan and my sports world revolved around football and hockey season with NASCAR to get me through the summer. I have not really been a basketball fan since the early 90’s and baseball has completely turned me off with its labor disputes, steroid use, and huge egos for guys who are playing a kid’s game. Unfortunately it seems that this is a need step for Hockey and I will return as a fan when they resume play. See for me it always seemed that Hockey was a purer sport. The players are good people who appreciated the fans and the money they were making. I have been lucky to be have grown up in
Enough about Mikey Jackson already. I am so sick of him. His music has not been good for ten years and he simply is a freak. Just convict or acquit him and be done with it. If he’s guilty then he will become some guy name Bubba’s bitch and that will be the end of him and if he’s innocent then he will make another shitty record. The examination of every little detail is completely unwarranted. There are far more issue out there that could use some of Mikey’s airtime, like the missing little girl in
Have a great Wednesday everyone.
