Windows Live (cooties)

I was looking for a restaurant for lunch today, and I clicked a link on the site and it took me to a Windows Live Map. Eww.  I closed the browser and immediately washed my hands. I intend to take…

Movie Monday: Iron Man

Well, I saw ‘Iron Man’ over the weekend, and I must admit – it was a really good movie! There are spoilers ahead – so if you haven’t seen the movie yet, and intend to, you might wanna skip the…

No Email – just the Fax

I don’t understand how anyone can survive in the business world anymore without having an email address and a website. In my job, I deal with a lot of sales people everyday, and the amount of folks who still rely…

Reality Tv

It amuses, amazes and boggles my mind that I am currently enjoying several shows that would be considered ‘reality tv’.  “Ace of Cakes”, “Ghost Hunters”, “Destination Truth” – these are all what I guess would be considered reality television and…

I miss Willow

I’m reminded of an episode of Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, sixth season, called ‘Villains’.  Andrew says: “I miss ‘Ferris’ Matthew…  Broadway Matthew?  I find him cold.” I miss ‘Willow’ Aly.  ‘How I met your mother’ Aly seems cold to me…

The Music Industry

Well. The music industry is in really bad shape. They sold 500.5 million albums last year. An ‘album’ these days take on many different forms; compact discs, cassettes and the actual and occasional LP – vinyl for those of you…

Politics

I have to admit, I was tired of this presidential election before it even started. It feels like it started as soon as the last one ended with everyone bitching. I think the pundits and cable news shows started talking…

What ever happened to

What ever happened to Original Syndicated Television? I mean – there used to be a ton of original, non-network stuff out there to watch, and now it’s all gone! I remember tons of shows like: Andromeda, Star Trek: The Next…
