Just finished watching LOST. Some of my pals bailed out on this a while back as they thought that the story meandered far too much. I have no doubt that the writers were operating off of MSU for a while but they seem to have gotten their act together. I’ll hang in there long enough to finish it.
Can’t say that I am sorry to see the JIBs end. I am tired of the campaigning and carping. Some bloggers need to grow up and find some other interests. Although I suspect that for some people it is going to be a traumatic finish. If you are a second rate hack with a limited vocabulary and the mental capacity of lobotomized llama you might be in trouble. Without the JIBs you are going to really have to tax the old melon to come up with new cartoons. The thing with satire is that it needs to be funny.
It certainly is possible to be stupid and funny. Stupid funny can be worth a chuckle. The problem is that you are just stupid. Then again when you parade dumb ideas in front of two or three sycophants you probably haven’t realized just how many people are laughing at you and not with you. Or maybe that is the problem. Maybe the burning anger and insecurity comes from the fear that everyone realizes just how little substance there is behind the shower curtain you hide behind.
I finally watched Casino Royale. It was much better than I expected. I should have seen it on a big screen but just never managed to get around to it.
In other blogging news I am still collecting posts for the upcoming edition of Haveil Havalim. It has been a busy week so I haven’t had as much time to work on this as I normally do. As always I encourage you to send your posts in. Haveil Havalim is the official carnival of the Jewish/Israeli blogosphere.
There is no better way to increase your exposure than to take advantage of it. Remember it is a low calorie, contains no trans fats and is high in fiber.
The last five songs on my iTunes:
Siouxsie and the Banshees
Stone Temple Pilots
Back in my college days you could frequently find the boys and I at the local pub. They had a balcony overlooking a swimming pool. During the spring it was one of our favorite haunts. We’d get a few pitchers of beer, enjoy the view and engage in spontaneous karaoke. Ok, karaoke is not really a good description, it was more like spontaneous singing.
More in the next post.
