Welcome to Attention-Deficit-Blogging – my random thoughts, rants, questions, and musings about nothing and everything.
Since when did LBJ mean LeBron James and not Lyndon Baines Johnson?
How come not one Supreme Court Justice got his/her degree from the “University of Honolulu School of Law” in Modesto, California?
Since practically all of them went to Harvard or Yale at some point, I often wonder how many Supreme Court Justices could also write for THE SIMPSONS?
Whenever I do a post criticizing an actress I always get blasted. Yet, the time I praised an actress (Patty Heaton) I got blasted worse. And I’m guessing that just by mentioning her name I’m going to get a raft of shit again.
My favorite recent HuffPost headline: Russell Brand: Why I Put A Barbie In My Rectum
Interleague play begins this week. Oh boy! Kansas City hosts Colorado!!!
What is the point of Facebook "pokes"? Who likes to be poked under any circumstances?
This is the last year I’m reviewing AMERICAN IDOL. There’s a sameness to it now. I feel like every single week I’m reviewing the same movie. And that movie is GROUNDHOG DAY. Plus, next year Simon will be gone so why even bother doing the show? I’m reminded of when Red Foxx and Demond Wilson left SANFORD & SONS and they renamed it THE SANFORD ARMS and some writer quipped, “NBC just renewed the set”.
Heidi Klum and Seal have renewed their wedding vows… for the SIXTH time. But this time they’re reasonably sure.
Speaking of great marriages, Larry King supposedly had a three-year affair with his wife’s sister while she had an affair with her kid’s baseball coach. But the good news is the kid can now throw.
Thanks to all of you who have wondered when my book about growing up in the 60s will be out. Hard to give an actual date because I don’t have a publisher and haven’t finished writing it yet. But I’m close. Well… close-ish. In all likelihood I will self-publish it… if the author doesn’t prove to be a giant pain in the ass.
Wow, the Matthew Broderick pilot must’ve really been a mess to not get on the air. Networks have been begging him to do a series for decades.
Why are people so upset that NBC cancelled LAW & ORDER? There are still twelve L&O offshoots including a new one (LAW & ORDER LOS ANGELES)? And the original L&O may move to TNT so there will still be new episodes made. This is like Starbucks closing a branch.
Another great thing about Twitter: when you accidentally give an incorrect fact (like I did last Sunday), people you don’t even know Re-Tweet the gaffe and spread the word to thousands of new people that you’re an idiot.
I’m usually not in favor of the death penalty but the BP CEO said the Gulf spill is “relatively tiny”. Boiling him in oil would be my execution of choice.
Who’s a bigger attention whore? Al Sharpton? Jesse Jackson? Gloria Allred?
So when you go to a fast food place that offers free refills on fountain drinks, why order any size other than 'small'?
Psychic James Van Praagh is all excited, going around claiming that he predicted Barbara Walters’ heart problem. He is absolutely ASTOUNDING! Who knew an 80 year-old woman could have health issues?
I’m very excited about the upcoming conclusion of LOST. Now we’ll finally know the truth. Did the writers really have a grand plan or was every story conference preceded with the words: “Okay, now what do we do?”
And if you think LOST is confusing just try to figure out the Yankees announcer rotation on the YES network.
