Urban Dance Squad 'Life N' Perspectives Of A Genuine Crossover'
Have you been to my MySpace page lately?
At the first of every month, I change my profile picture. It’s usually something that should elicit a chuckle. And after dinner with a friend last night, we sat down and knocked out a few adult beverages… She suggested that I change my profile picture at least every other week.
I posted a bulletin asking what my MySpace friends thought. Overwhelmingly, they went with her advice as well. It seems that the “joke” wears off within 28 to 31 days. So I’ll be changing it every 1st and 15th of the month.
Today’s mail had something for me that I have been LONGING for… Disc 1 of season 3 of Rescue Me! I immediately put that bad boy into my DVD player and knocked out the first episode. I just had to get caught up on Tommy Gavin’s (Denis Leary) life.
And not to give anything away… There’s a BIG twist in the first episode. Did I mention how much I love this show?
I can’t understand why I wasn’t onboard with it when it first started running on FX. What in the hell was I thinking? How could I have missed such a damn fine show from the start?
And last night, my friend kept trying to get me to admit that I like reality shows. Sure, I’ve watched a couple of episodes of So You Can Dance and I’ve found it a much better product than most of that type of crap out there. But I have only watched it with her. So she asked, “Why don’t you watch it when you’re home? You like it.”
First of all, I watch television to escape reality. I want to see something made up and created for my entertainment. Sure, So You Think You Can Dance has it moments, but I don’t care about the participants. I don’t want to care. I just don’t see that many redeeming qualities to watch it on my own.
Tommy Gavin from Rescue Me… I care about. He’s haunted by ghosts, he has a drinking problem, and in general he’s a despicable human being. He’s interesting and entertaining. And he’s surrounded by those same types at the firehouse. There’s not a single episode where I’m not laughing.
If you haven’t seen the show, I highly recommend it.
Well… That is all I’ve got today. I know that it’s kind of a weak update. I’m itching to get back to some Rescue Me. I want to finish that first disc tonight and get that joker back into the mail in order to get disc 2.
Again, it’s important to have goals.
