Worth Living In

  • The Monologue:
    • It's been since July that I've worked off of the regular format, between the movie list and my vacation. Back to work.
    • Is everyone scared of Hurricane Bill? Hurricane Bill. It sounds like the former president at a Hooters employee convention.
    • Over the weekend, our current president backed off of the public option for health care. People won't be able to buy treatment from the government. Funyun retailers in California are mortified.
    • Michael Jackson is finally going to be buried on August 29th. He died June 25th. Over two months of laying around lifelessly. The Republicans in Congress are going to start insisiting he get a feeder tube.
    • Over two months of laying around dead. Talk about the funk of forty-thousand years.
  • Random Pop Culture:
    • I neglected to mention yesterday that I also watched Grand Turino on DVD Saturday. Very good movie; Eastwood is outstanding in it.
    • Weeds this week was Esteban-heavy and relatively Andy-light. Wonder why I didn't like it that much...
    • If you're a sports fan, last week's Entourage with Tom Brady is a must-see. The premise is that Turtle, a Giants fan (though a Jets fan would have made more sense), wants to curse out Brady at a golf tournament, but ends up getting a man-crush on him. It's perfect.
    • The Oregon Trail app for iPhone and iPod Touch is pretty sweet. True to the old game with some more modern updates.
  • Random Music Video:
    • Someone mentioned this yesterday in a discussion about Phil Collins. A great song and a classic video (yes, I know it wasn't from his solo work). I still insist that Tim Russert looked like the Phil Collins puppet:

I remember that those puppets scared the crap out of me.
