A watch doesn't really go with this outfit, daddy.

I know the news is nearly always unpleasant, but it just seems like the past few days have been an absolute parade of ridiculous shit. I actually haven't bothered to read about the O.J. mess, just read the details of the whole Jena 6 debacle this morning, and it seems like the Taser incident is having the wrong aspects blown out of proportion. Hell, I wasn't there, but I think Jon Stewart nailed it last night: "possible police over-reaction combined with student douchebaggery".

I had to go to bed so I didn't get to see what Colbert did last night (TiVO will save it for me), but I did see something on CNN this morning about an Air America radio host being a little pissy about Colbert allegedly "stealing his joke" about the Republican candidates sounding like Klingons when they talked about having honor. Yes, who could possibly come up with that twice? But hey who knows, it could be an intended mock feud, the show does seem to have a few of those...

Anyway, thank god for real news, like Alicia Silverstone getting naked and saying she's a vegetarian. I have no idea what getting out of a pool all seductively has to do with PETA, really, and even if I was a sixteen year old boy, I'd still be watching it while cutting up a nice rare steak. (NSFW, it has bum in it).



No movies lately, though House starts next week; considering the cast is still intact I think his team may be back yet (though not in their usual roles for a while). I have Gandhi waiting for me (never seen it), though I admit especially after a long day it's a bit daunting to put a serious three hour movie in the player. Somehow I find myself opting for South Park. And I won't have a day off til the end of the month so Netfux, I'm sure, is thrilled.

Meh. She's OK, but the ad kind of sucks. Really, is that going to make somebody give up meat?

LOL I was just going to say I suddenly crave a huge BBQ sandwich. That'd be MEAT BBQ, not some tempeh crap. Tempeh can be good mind you, but not when you want pork.

I didn't realize the House cast was still intact. We just finished the second season and I figured they wanted some fresh hot doctors.

Skyler'sD: Not only does it make me want to eat meat in retaliation, but seriously: what the fuck message are they even TRYING to send?

Blanco: Double meat for me, please.

Vel: You mean you just finished the third season. Isn't that messed up--this will be the fourth season. Time flies. The three of them are still about (or will be) but he'll go through about forty new people first. So the rumors go...

Veloute said...

Damn, you are right. I finished the third season. Daaaaamn.

Oh that happens to me all the time, with me being a veggie.

You know, moving in slow motion and looking air brushed to buggery - "it's sooo amazing".

:)
