For those of you who appreciate the humor of Monty Python’s Life of Brian, I bring you the following little ditty to brighten up your day.
And for those of you that actually want the MP3 of said tune, you may find it here for a limited time.
For those of us who are sick and tired of the iPad hype, the following YouTube video was a beauty to behold. For you iPad lovers out there, pay close attention to the :34 second mark .
Oh, and the iPad does blend.
Last week, the rumors about the impending cancellation of 24 became truth. This season–the eighth–will be the last one for what is my favorite television show. The show was pioneering with its real-time format, and in the first five seasons, some of the plot twists were truly unexpected.
I will certainly miss the show, but the last three seasons have admittedly been alternately good and bad, action-packed and ponderous. While this season has had some excellent character development in the relationship between Jack Bauer and Renee Walker, it has also introduced one of the the worst 24 subplots involving Dana Walsh, played by Katee Sackhoff.
This season has shown the limits of a drama that has reached a certain maturity in its story. Basically, the writers have been hard pressed to come up with a new challenge to Jack Bauer. Add to that its increasing cost and a desire to take the show to the big screen, and the decision makes sense.
So, it is with a heavy heart that I will take in the rest of Season 8. I look forward to the finale and other happy returns in the theater. Besides, imagine how much more foul-mouthed Jack could be on the big screen?
I took in a variety of various entertainment options this weekend with my better half. It was a great way to spend the weekend.
