Dance, Floor, Round

  • The Monologue:
    • A bunch of Amish families are moving into a small Maine town. Which is going to be great until their kids start hanging out in cornfields. This will end badly.
    • Miley Cyrus said that all of the hoopla around Twlight is a "cult." Then she told the thousands of screaming fans at her concert to buy more t-shirts because God said it was the right thing to do.
    • They came out with the annual study of how much the presents in "The 12 Days of Christmas" would cost. I was going to make a joke about how the $87,403 price tag was high but little Jimmy whined about drumming for Rock Band until his mom bought it all anyway. But then I read the article. How do ten lords-a-leaping cost $2,000 more than twelve drummers drumming? Neil Peart needs a new agent.
  • Random Pop Culture:
    • Alec Baldwin says he's going to quit acting once 30 Rock is done because he considers his movie career a "complete failure." Sure, nobody's proud of Along Came Polly and Pearl Harbor. But Beetle Juice? The Hunt for Red October? Glengarry Glen Ross? The Cooler? The Departed? He's selling himself a bit short.
    • I took a quick break from the game tonight to watch House, which was excellent. They did an episode with Wilson as the main character, showing House's team only in snippets as they crossed paths. Really, really good stuff and a nice way to shake things up a bit in the middle of the season.
    • How anti-climactic was this week's Amazing Race episode? A horrible decision and a worse episode. Hopefully it's the calm before next week's finale storm, though how do Meghan and Cheyne not win it all?
    • Newsflash: the Saints are good. I've seen a bit of the Colts lately and they keep making big plays to win close games, but nobody's getting close to the Saints right now. Their closest victory was by five at St. Louis two weeks ago. One of only two single-digit wins this season. They're creaming teams, especially the good ones. They beat Philly by 26 and the Giants and the Patriots by 21. It's hard to see anyone beating them because I don't know how you slow down that offense. So many weapons. More, in terms of quantity, than the Patriots had two years ago.
    • Also, the Saints won me big money this week. In order to win my office pool, I needed them to win and the total to be 53 to 55 points. A missed FG towards the end cemented the 38-17 victory. Lucky!
  • Random Music Video:
    • The greatest album ever was released on November 30, 1982. Twenty-seven years ago today. So torn... Do I post the best video from the album? The best song? Hmm... You know, I posted the best video on the day he died, so here's the best song from the album:
