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.

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".

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
