I can’t believe how little I post

Since I use Facebook account, I’ve gotten so lazy about actually writing unimportant stuff on this site. I need a project, something to document. Either a story/book, how-to….I’ll think of something. Here are some thoughts, probably stated better elsewhere:

1. The MSNBC show Lockup: Raw when run on a virtual loop on the weekends, does more harm than good, I bet. For a network that claims to be progressive/liberal, why it gets off showing criminals in prison over and over is beyond me. Usually featuring minorities or poor people, imprisoned for crimes, yes, the show reinforces stereotypes (in equal doses). When you run this kinda of programming, along with the constant “Murder in a Small Town” type stories, and then wonder why half of America is scared to go outside…I guess it’s cheaper than paying a few dope anchors to sit behind the desk all day. But why not re-run Biographies, old news footage (like they used to when they started).

2.  Kind of a joke: -Everyone is screaming over healthcare reform (pro or con) and the irony is nobody likes to go to the doctor. So, we want coverage, we just don’t want to use it and will wait until blood is oozing out our ears or “that bump” starts to grow an eyeball before seeking help. Guys could cut off their arms accidentally and hold off going to the doctors (“just a scratch”). So, bring on the healthcare reform, nobody’s gonna use it anyway!

3. Inglorious Basterds (movie) – interesting movie, a few major flaws (the font choice on some of the titles, Mike Meyers?) but I think I’m getting tired of having to know ‘everything’ about film to appreciate the experience that QT provides.  Oh, and horrible title/commercials – seems to shy away from the strongest part of the film (Col. Landa, and the two women characters).

4. I’m trying to read this cheesey book called Doomsday Key. I won’t link to it cuz it sucks. There is an art to writing fast-paced thrillers.

5. I was fortunate to buy a house this year and I have learned what I expected to learn: ABR – Always Be Repairing. This is done by some research, having good friends/family to help, and repeated trips to the hardware store.

NBC’s David Gregory says “you’re in my seat, losers!” to Olbermann and Matthews

Stretch to the rescue!
Stretch to the rescue!

Today, dork reporter David Gregory came in to his house after a few games of hoops, a game tall people play, and he gets a phone call:

NBC/MSNBC: Hey, David, this is your boss.

David Gregory: What’s up? And call me ‘Stretch,’ like the Prez, please.

NBC/MSNBC: We’re moving the idiots.

David Gregory: You’re getting rid of Matt and Meredith?

NBC/MSNBC: No. The other ones.

(brief silence)

David Gregory: I’m at a loss. Which ones?

NBC/MSNBC: Olbermann and Matthews – but just from prime time news coverage on this election stuff. They still have their shows.

David Gregory: That’s cool. Whatever. I get to sit in the big chair, right? Next to Brokaw and Williams?

NBC/MSNBC: Yes. But there’s one thing.

David Gregory: What is it?

NBC/MSNBC: You have to call David Shuster every morning to wake him up. Scarborough says the dude is lazy.


Hardballer Chris Matthews just got pwned by Stretch
Keith Olbermann just cares too much. Sigh.
Keith Olbermann's biggest fault? He just cares too much.

DNC, night 3, Clinton, Biden, and Obama, MSNBC, part 3!

So Obama shows up at the end and says ‘thanks, Biden, for remembering my name.’ Then he takes out a coin and tosses it to Biden, and says “Keep the Change” and he winks knowingly and they fist-bump, only Biden breaks his hand and starts to cry so they take him off stage. And then Obama gives a shout out to Bill Clinton, who will not be the First Man next year, but instead will return to NY to continue his studies of global politics and solutions to poverty, and to catch up with E!’s show “Girls Next Door.” Then Obama waves to the crowd and Fox News reports that Obama whispered “dirka dirka” to Biden earlier, proving once again that Obama lives a double-life as a muslim, speaks muslim, and that plans for a White House basement-level mosque are in the works.

Meanwhile, the dolts at MSNBC seem hellbent on destroying each other while “reporting/analyzing” the Democratic Convention this week. Olbermann, Matthews, Scarborough, Shuster, etc. are hilariously dysfunctional. It’s like that scene from Reservoir Dogs, with Steve Buscemi telling everyone to act like professionals. MSNBC needs a professional reporter to babysit all of them. I wonder if this kinda crap would be going on if Tim Russert were alive?

So, here’s an example of the lovefest at MSNBC. Remember these people work for the same cable channel. I guess Olbermann’s “Worse Person In The World” will be sourced from within soon.

It’s great television, though useless for the voters! (as usual, right?).
