Things I've Owned
This I believe

The one where I wonder how things get green lighted

Hello Mayor
I don't mind our little mayor Mike Bloomberg. His most attractive feature is the fact that he isn't a professional politician, which in my book is worth something.

Oh, I didn't vote yesterday.
I needed to get into work early so figured I could vote after work, but by the time I got home the exit polls were basically saying, "surprise! Bloomberg!" so I stayed in and ate pasta with the wife.
Not my proudest moment as a citizen, but I sleep fine.

The ironic thing of course is the fact that of all the elections, this is the one that should be the most important - the whole local level politics affect us more often.

Effect. Affect.
This whole thing has been confusing me lately.
Am I becoming senile?

Trading Spouses
In keeping with the tradition of writing about things I am too lazy to actually do (i.e. talking about politics yet neglecting to vote) everyone is all a buzz about the latest "Trading Spouses" show where some holy-crap-freaky woman freaks out (as freaky people tend to do) and yells at her new family about their rotting souls and the devil.
"Anytime someone said astrology or gargoyle, she would flip out"

OK, I did watch a clip of this from the "internet".
Man oh man.
The producers of this show are popping champagne right now because this has to be such a win for them.
"Kudos Greg! Great casting!"

Stupid ass people
My issue with this Trading Spouses show, apart from this scary-ass Marguerite Perrin woman, is the fact that idiot retard parents would even consider having their family involved in this thing - especially families that have young children.
What are you attention deprived mutants thinking?

I have no issue with 20-something vapid waiters from TJ McCooleys and dental hygienists being on reality shows and making fools of themselves.
But involving your children in a reality show produced by Fox?

Tiny TV
This iPod Video do-hicky... is that really going to catch on? I am not sure I get the appeal of watching TV shows on a tiny little screen.

Along those same lines, I love Verzion's video streaming service for their cell phones where you can pay (right?) to watch movie trailers (?!) and snippets from TV on your phone.
Confounding me it is.

Victoria's Secret "Fashion Show" back on CBS
While we are talking about TV here, I guffawed the other day when I saw a huge billboard for the Victoria's Secret "Fashion Show" that they are airing on CBS next month. Man.
What a great racket CBS has here.

I suppose the only way this ever gets green-lighted is the whole T&A aspect of it, but it's fun to think about other companies doing specials like this on TV.
The Gap's Back to School Fashion Extravagance on ABC Kid's!

Fashion for the glue sniffers
Speaking of fashion shows, I love love love love that news item about the charity that hosted a fashion show for glue-sniffing homeless kids in Columbia.
"A model parades in front of street children, some of whom are sniffing glue, in the drug-infested 'Barrio Triste' (Sad Neighborhood) in downtown Medellin in Colombia. The event was organised to entertain the children by a member of a local charity that helps children in Barrio Triste by providing food, clothes and cleaning facilities."


Once again, how does stuff like this get green-lighted?
"We need a way to make our homeless children more aware of fashion - and if possible, hornier. That's the synergy I am looking for."

They tried the same thing during Hurricane Katrina with mixed results...

i didn't vote either and this time around i really didn't care!
