Sunday Funnies

I don't like how McDonalds has cowed under pressure. This is stupid. Every kid loves their fries and chicken nuggets - that' what a 'happy meal' is to them. It' their "constitutional right to freedom of choice" (hehehe)

Oh man, I am one of those kids you'd call "The MTV Generation" wedged between Gen-X and Gen-Y.

Captain America has really let himself go...... I would call him Captain Diabetes now!
I'll miss Randy Moss. I'm in a humor bloggers fantasy football league and I had him on my team a few times...he was fun to make fun of. :)

We obviously like to listen to our music, so why did the music leave from MTV? Why can't we have a rock half hour music videos. A half hour of hip-hop (blech). A half-hour of pop (blech, well not so much *grin*). A half-hour here and there.

MTV? Anyone? Anyone?

Me likey the funnies, but I'm not laughing too much at the debt ceiling. More like crapping my pants! Spooky! Real spooky. *grin*

I'm not a big fan of McDonalds other than for their Sausage Egg McMuffins. But their hamburgers? Blah.

MTV and it's Canadian cousin Much Music were great. But they don't seem to play much music (no pun intended) any more. What's up with that? Did you Tube kill the video star?

Yeah, he's really out of shape. Actually both the captain and his Uncle.
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, lately it was always interesting to watch the Sunday pre-game shows to see what kind of trouble he got himself into week to week. He was usually a victim of his own mouth.
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, I agree. Where did the music go?

On the debt ceiling business you guys just had your credit rating reduced. Spooky, indeed.

Does MTV even show music videos anymore? Do they even make music videos anymore? I think MTV now stands for, "Meh T.V.". Frankly, I've never really gotten into MTV or Much Music. The best music video I've ever seen is "Thriller" (yeah, I'll have to concede that one).

Do you remember the first song MTV played? Video Killed The Radio Star. I googled it.
00dozo said…
Ha! I actually had that song in my head when I thought of MTV and was writing my comment! Sadly, reality t.v. has killed the video star, as it were. We didn't get MTV on our 'basic cable' subscription when it first aired, but I do remember them making a big deal of it on the news back then.

They were pretty artsy-fartsy at Much. The first video played on MuchMusic was an early music-to-film synchronization short from the 1920s which featured Eubie Blake performing Snappy Songs. The first video made specifically for television air play was Rush's "The Enemy Within".

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The chatted all day when the store was busy and at night when the store was closed. They talked about everything. The talked about what raw products they came from. The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …
