Organized Musings Revisited

A while back I wrote some "organized random musings," and since I've nothing better to muse about, well, I'm doing it again.

Television

I've previously mentioned that Jay Leno will kill NBC. Sure, so did many other people, but since I said it irrespective of them, I'm going to go ahead and claim that I was right.

AMC's remake of The Prisoner is, so far, quite a bit better than their absolutely crap remake of The Andromeda Strain.

Speaking of Leno... thanks for killing Southland prematurely. Here's hoping TNT (who picked it up) does the show some justice.

Sports

The Chargers are now tied for first in the AFC West after a bad start... they had to catch up to the Broncos (who had a great start), who they play next week. Go Bolts! And congrats to LaDainian Tomlinson for passing for passing Marcus Allen on the all-time touchdown list (Tomlinson is now in 3rd on that list) and Franco Harris on the all-time rushing yardage list.

Nice, Bill Belichick. Your supreme arrogance caused you to go for it on 4th down and 2 yards to go... against a streaking Colts team. You were winning 34 to 28 with two minutes left in the game. And you lost. I laugh in your general direction.

Speaking of LaDainian Tomlinson... New York Giants fans seem to take offense that Tomlinson is called "LT," which, as we all know, is the moniker of Giants great Lawrence Taylor. I don't really see what the big deal is, but I guess I tend to agree. Why not use "LDT" for Tomlinson?

Music

Tulsa's song, "Mass," is one of the best rock n' roll songs of all time.

Some recommendations for you adult rockers: Tea Leaf Green, Carlon (whose song, "Cantaloupe," is fucking phenomenal), Bert Susanka, and Au Revoir Simone.

Dance/techno/trance/whatever listeners: Radioactive Sandwich kicks ass. Magnum .38 isn't too bad, either.

Animals

If you have a dog that won't stop digging holes in your yard, fill the holes with his shit. He'll stop, trust me.

Conclusion

That's all I got... I'm sleepy.

  1. Well apart from the doggy tip . . I'm feeling very Antipodean although we do get Jay Leno late at night. I can't be arsed watching it. And we get that some other American idiot . .old guy with grey hair that faffs around with his band leader and manages to squeeze one or two celebrities between his unhilarious drivel . . I'm sure he's famous in New York but he shits me to tears and I can't remember the dickhead's name. Aha! David Letterman . . Yeh, we get the best American programs over here . . hence my propensity to seek entertainment via the internet.

    Sweet dreams . . sorry bit grumpy tonight, it's 30 at 8:45pm and the only way to keep cool is to sit in a wet T shirt with a fan on! Being 'green' is a real pain in the ass sometimes.

  5. I'm with you about Jay Leno. It's why I don't watch much TV but I have heard that The Prisoner is quite good.
