OK, since it's the 4th of August, and since August is the month of slow news, what better than to share with the world some stuff that goes through my brain. So that, someday a long time from now (hopefully), people can look at these musings and say, "Oh. I guess that explains it. We should have known." Anyway, off we go!
How come someone hasn't made a horror movie yet about a Siri-type device in someone's phone that becomes demon-possessed and directs people to their doom?
The new Amazon commercial for Kindle Fire where the woman says "My daughter's really into Caillou, Curious George" isn't selling Amazon any product.
Relating the last items: Caillou is an instrument of Satan. Fact.
I'm loving watching A-Rod get all defiant about getting suspended. He's got enough money to fight one hell of a legal battle and not even miss it. I'd like to see him get up in MLB's face about this.
A dessert I have never had and have always wanted to try: Baked Alaska.
So there's a "Batman vs. Superman" movie coming in 2015. I don't think there's enough money to throw at Christian Bale to have him come back as Batman.
Saw a story talking about how disappointing the summer box office season has been. One piece of advice I offer: stop making the movie experience so blinking expensive. A 3D movie ticket plus refreshments is $30. For one person. That's insane.
But now that "Smurfs 2" has come out, I think all will be well. I predict $1.8 billion wordwide.
Has the ICC made anything better about transportation in Montgomery County and Maryland? Every time I'm on it, it's empty.
Happy National Friendship Day! And National Coast Guard Day! Let's be careful out there.
