I stopped watching television altogether when there was nothing on last Sunday night, haven't seen a thing since.

I may pay the box for a few movies that didn't seem to appear locally according to stringent community mores which prefer that all theatres in a radius of twenty miles show exactly the same mediocre selections.

Next Sunday, watch "John from Cinncinnati" if you like to catalogue the decline of Western Civilization.

Yes, I read a few, including Death at La Fenice, being an opera lover.  I think that was made into a movie.  The funny part of these movies is they are filmed in Venice by a gGerman company with a completely German acting crew speaking German and after awhile you don't even notice because they look Italian and act Italian.  Italians couldn't do it better if they tried.  Her books are extremely popular in German, that's why.

Funny, law, but while I feel a bit Shaggy I don't seem like one, and while I might want to feel Meridith Grey, I don't seem like her either.

Good book promo, though.

Harrie, I believe that would be M.C. Gainey, aka Tom Friendly, aka the angry truck driver (Cammi's husband) running after Paul Giamatti naked in "Sideways."  AKA the demented henchman of J.T. Walsh in Breakdown or whatever that was called with Kurt Russell and Kathleen Quinlan AKA a zillion other shady characters.   I can't remember his role's name in Brisco County, but I did like that show.  Bruce Campbell and John Astin -- how can you go wrong?

I just caught John from Cincinatti on Demand.  There aren't enough bright spots to overwhelm the unintentionally funny dialogue.  And its very contrived.  Will keep watching to see how it goes...

"Big Smith" was Gainey's name in Brisco Cty.  BTW, happy birthday to Michael Connor Gainey, who just had one on the 15th.

"Swamp Thing" was his pilot in Con Air.

"Earl" was his menacing yokel in Breakdown.

Yippee barton, you win!!  MC Gainey is great, IMHO of course. 

I took the quizzes, and I'm Velma and George O'Malley.  I don't know if being George O'M is good or not, since I don't do Gray's Anatomy. Hope he's not a serial killer or something.  Oh -- and I'm picking up the book for sure; I love that stuff.

George O'Malley is the guy whom Isaiah Washington supposedly outed;who then went on the Ellen DeGeneris Show, to prove it. Latest word, I.W. was let go. Another version is that Washington is doing a movie.  (?)

They fire that guy for saying "faggot," which the guy admits to being, but when Rosie O'Donnell says "ching chong, ching chong" you get nothing, which she gets away with on account of being lesbo.  Then you get the whole Imus "nappy ho" thing which, if not that funny, was a harmless comment on the common vernacular that black people, particulary those in the "hip hop community" frequently use.  And yet, Fred Funk does a pink-skirted dance of misogny when outdriven by A. Sorenstam, demeaning the accomplishments of female atheletes everywhere, and he is supposedly a "good sport."  Why wasn't Imus being a good sport???  Why isn't Isiah Washington making a bad joke?  "The Big Show" or whatever out of Charlotte, NC, is always doing patently racist material in blackvoice, but [crickets].  I was once accused of making a demeaning roid rage slur and was labeled as "anti-personal trainer," I mean, why can't we all just bang a gong, get it on, and all just get along???

That's the one with John Boy and Billy, isn't it?  When I worked at the radio stations, one of them carried the feed.  JB&Bwere just awful, not even funny in any kind of "I shouldn't be/don't want to laugh at them, but I can't help it" way -- just not funny at all.  I liked to think the [crickets] was because nobody was listening; but since I was in SC close to 10 years ago and they're still around, I guess that's not the case.
