  • Are you as pissed about the $18 BILLION Wall Street CEOs got in bonuses while begging the Bush administration for welfare and getting it ( I won’t even go into the sudden GOP change of heart on bailouts, that’s another rant and frankly, a lesser one)? Are you fucking kidding me? And frankly, President Obama should do something about it. Congress is trying, having introduced a bill to cap CEO wages, but this is the great capitalist experiment gone awry. Gekko was right- greed is good. But you know something- so is humility. And Wall Street has zero of that.
  • Bruce ” Guitar God and Blue Collar Hero” Springsteen rightfully got slammed by his more liberal, Wal Mart hating fans ( ahem… right here) for striking an exclusivity deal. Today, while at a presser discussing the Superbowl Half Time Show ( I am to understand that the Super Bowl is some sort of football game with a huge concert at what I assume to be the half way point- God, I’m taking a piss, people, go Steelers), Mr. Thunder Road admitted that it was a mistake to sign that deal, considering Wal Mart exploitation of third world workers and their union bashing and everything.
  • Is it me, or does Idol suck in ways unforgivable this year?I know, wait till Hollywood week is over and see what talent we actually have. People bring up Jason Castro. I counter with Sanjaya.
  • Disney has cut four hundred jobs, the Hollywood trades are struggling, Murdoch’s empire is now a “sell”, OK! rag has editor ousted, and WSJ is looking at layoffs as well. The media is changing, filks, and it ain’t pretty for the old timers. As long as the Sun-Times keeps Ebert, I’m a-okay.
  • Anthony Bourdain says when he wakes up every morning, he’s angry at Rachael Ray. Me, too, buddy ( EVOO? Seriously, that’s piss ass annoying right there).
  • Elisabot is preggers again, Rosie not around to eat her alive this time. Sorry, it was too easy. I had to.
  • CBS great Katie Couric experiment came in second to Idol, which means it’s a smashing success.
  • Would you bump Nightline for Jimmy Kimmel when Conan takes over the Tonight Show? ABC say don’t be silly, but it’s a persistent bugger of a rumor that just won’t die. I am not a huge Jimmy fan ( the Matt Damon/Ben Affleck vids were hilarious, but he usually make s me cranky by the end of his monologue). I am, however, a fanatical Conan fan, and I would end up watching the great red head anyday. It clears me up to watch Craig Ferguson without guilt.
  • Earlier this week, legendary author John Updike died. I got wrapped up in reading Rabbit At Rest for the third time and never wrote anything. Something tells me Updike would have appreciated that. Writers ony want to be remembered for what they wrote and how it affected you as the reader. Everything else is dust bunnies.
