LISTENING: Fall Out Boy's "From Under the Cork Tree" and "Infinity on High" morning, noon, and night. And for those who know me, that's not an exaggeration. I'm going to their show in November ...gotta make sure I can sing along instead of just standing there feeling "too old."
WATCHING: "Heroes" tonight! Can't wait. I'm not one of those geeks who followed any summer hiatus crap, so as far as I know, Hero is in old Asia and the bad guy who steals power from other heroes got away. And the mayor (or was he a Senator) flew into space and blew up. What up with that?
ALSO WATCHING: "Mad Men." I never got into "The Soprano's", but I hear this is kinda like that. I LOVE this show. I want to be Don Draper. I'm going at lunch to buy Brylcreem. Also watching "Survivor." It usually takes me a few episodes to decide if it'll be a good cast ...not this time. Took me all of 15 minutes to know this is gonna be AWESOME! My real quick takes ... hillbilly guy had to go and I'm glad he's gone. Ultra-Christian chick is in love with Green Mile guy. This could be fun to watch. It didn't even take her 3 days to realize she'd like to eat of the fruit from the tree in the middle of the garden. Annoying-New-York-Anorexic chick, I hope, gets eaten by a panda.
ALSO, ALSO WATCHING: "Family Guy's" spoof of "Star Wars" is the last spoof on this movie that ever needs to be made. I had 6 guffaw-type, lose-my-breath, belly laughs and at least a dozen additional laughs (of the "out loud") variety. Brilliant.
I'LL WATCH ANYTHING ONCE: "Chuck" and "Journeyman." I feel like I'm grasping to find something to entertain me whilst I wait for "Jericho," "LOST," and "American Idol." to return after the first of the year. One thing is for sure, I had better have my books read, my chores done, and anything else I'd like to do in the evenings finished by January '08. Why? Because the afore mentioned three shows will be back, as will Mad Men, Greek, Amazing Race, and all my regular shows (see Tivo list at right)
NOT WATCHING: "Kid Nation". The summer's news stories and controversy were more entertaining than the show can ever be. It didn't take more than 10 minutes for me to stop watching. Kids say the darndest things ...that writers tell them to say while their parents stand just off camera coaching them. The network will deny it, of course, but this is as phony and staged as any reality show I've ever seen. In fact, no. It's NOT a reality show. It's actually a play. A children's play. And we all know that children like to put on plays and we all know that they suck (like the ones you see at elementary schools or church around the holidays). Hence, this sucks.
THINKING: I'm going on the Super Model-Coffee-and-Cigarette diet. Except I don't smoke. So I'm just gonna drink coffee morning, noon, and night and drink lots of water and eat ice chips. Before all is said and done, I'm gonna look like the lead singer of Maroon 5, so help me.
I read that Britney's ex-bodyguard testified she's an unfit parent. It's not bad enough that Congressmen can't trust prostitutes anymore, but now fast-lane-wild-life super-celebs can't trust bodyguards? At least I know I can still trust my shoe-shine guy. Some things are still sacred.
