Monday Miscellany

1. Glee comes back on this week--yay! Foz re-ran the pilot this past week and I'm even more in love with this show now than I was a few months ago, if that's possible. GLEE!

2. I just started a five year journal (which is where you write a sentence or two about what happened today on a page, and then come back on the same day the next year and do it again). I've only been doing it for a few days, so it's boring now; I wonder if it will be more interesting next year, or the year after that.

3. I have a new favorite song, this one (stupid music companies disabling the embed). This girl (Fefe Dobson) is like the love child of Joan Jett, Rihanna, Green Day, and Kelly Clarkson, in other words...awesome.

4. Also awesome, this old commercial for, which I saw on YouTube while I was looking for the Fefe Dobson thing:

WOOO OOOOH OOOOOOOO, baby, please don't go!

5. Disturbia is a pretty good modern take on Rear Window, and I totally understand why people thought that Shia LaBeouf was going to be a big deal based on this movie. It's unfortunate that his choices subsequent to Disturbia were I Can't Believe We Waited Twenty Years For This*, followed by Unwatchable Movie About Toys You Enjoyed When You Were A Child, and Unwatchable Movie 2.**


* aka Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

** aka Transformers and Transformers 2.


Hard to beat Peter Cetera and Chicago back in the day, isn't it? Oh, people make fun of them all the time but they churned out one great song after another for many years.

Funny you mention Disturbia. Saw it the other night on basic cable and actually got sucked into it. Sure, it's basically a remake but it's still well done and satisfying. I thought Shia did a good job but you're right, his subsequent choices leave something to be desired. I hope he grows up a bit and picks better movie roles.

I'm afraid to even watch Glee. No particular reason but whenever folks say "you HAVE to watch this," I immediately think "Do I really have to watch this?" For example, I've seen about five minutes of The Sopranos over the years. Eh, no big deal, if you ask me. I'll tell you what . . . you can watch Glee and enjoy the heck out of it and I won't watch Glee and it won't bother you at all, OK? Sound good to you?

Of course, if you INSIST that I watch Glee, then you're going to have to watch something I want you to watch . . .

Today's word verification was "prochlos." That's GOT to be a word in some language, no?
