Eric Clapton ‘Money And Cigarettes’
Well, I managed to knock out the season opener of Lost and within the first few minutes of the show, my jaw was left hanging so open that a small homeless man could have found shelter. I don’t want to give anything away because I know that my friend Kristina is just starting up with season one and she reads this blog from time to time. But my goodness, I couldn’t believe what had happened! A big ol’ question was answered and replaced by more questions. I frakking love this show!
I recently watched Thank You For Smoking and Nacho Libre. They are definitely two very different types of comedy. Thank You For Smoking was frakking hilarious and Nacho Libre was the type of comedy that’s as funny as watching a tracheotomy being performed.
Sure, my six-year-old nephew Preston laughed his little butt off during the flick, but I found Nacho Libre as appetizing as most Mexican dishes, which I don’t enjoy. I gave it only 2 stars on Netflix.
As for Thank You For Smoking, I gave that joker the full, five star treatment. And I suggest you rent or purchase this DVD.
I also managed to watch the first two episodes on disc 2 of season one of Six Feet Under. And I’m here to tell ya… They knocked the bitch out of the park!
The first disc of season one didn’t really move me, but when I got to the ‘Familia’ and ‘Open Book’, I couldn’t stop watching the damn show. So now I’m seeing how good a show it’s capable of being and I’m going to ride out the rest of the seasons. I’m a believer now!
I’ve been thinking about doing something crazy… Perhaps it’s even a little dangerous.
I’m thinking about eliminating the television for one day out of the week.
I will not watch anything on DVD. I will not watch anything on VHS. I will not watch anything on FOX. I will not watch the idiot box.
I’m thinking about just enjoying silence or some music instead of watching the television. I know, I know what you’re thinking… It could very well kill me!
Maybe I’ll get out of the house and enjoy some nature? Get a little exercise? Or find out where all the prostitutes hang out in this town?
I see nothing but “pluses” when I start thinking about giving up television for one day out of my week.
The tough part is trying to find out which day to eliminate. Sundays are still in the game because of NASCAR and my Redskins. But that can change once the Skins have been eliminated and then I won’t care about the rest of the post season. NASCAR’s season ends in a couple of weeks and won’t start up until February, so that could be an easy stretch.
Monday is a possibility, but I tend to use that day as a catch up day.
Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday are great days for boob tube elimination! There’s nothing much going on.
Friday and Saturday is out because of Battlestar Galactica. To me, that’s “must see TV”.
Again, I’m only thinking about it. Feel free to leave a comment or two.
