So I’ve managed to reach another Sunday while making a post every day. Already see a potential bump in the road for next Saturday as I’m attending an all-day event (which I’ll have a posting about afterward) and won’t have any time to blog that day. The event is at a place with spotty cell access too, so getting on the internet will likely not be possible. So I guess that’s two bumps in the road.
A third bump in the road might be the need to make a blog post early Saturday morning about a potential college summer baseball playoff game the night before. Going to gave a busy week for as long as the Worcester Bravehearts stay alive in their playoffs. Semi-finals are Monday, Tuesday, and (if necessary) Wednesday, with the finals being Thursday, Friday, and (if necessary) Saturday. That’s a lot of blogging on top of doing my regular work. Guess we’ll all see how this turns out.
Now on to the tidbits…
I’m part of the ever-growing crowd that’s already had enough of this election. If anyone had written what has happened so far as a book it would have been rejected as being unrealistic. It’s like two crazy reality TV stars joined forces to make an even worse show than they usually have. And we have three more months of this insanity. You want to know why the rest of the world laughs at us, this is the reason.
I was sent an email with the following question the other day…”What do the following pairs/groups of people all have in common? Each group has the same thing in common”. These were the pairs/groups:
Abraham Lincoln, Napoleon Bonaparte, and Karl Marx
Charlie Chaplin and 50 Cent
Betty White and Alexander Graham Bell
Ben Franklin and Mozart
Pharrell Williams and Pablo Picasso
Confucius and Buddha
I didn’t get the answer and had to look it up…each person was alive at the same time as the others in their group. I never would have guessed that.
Revolver, my second favorite Beatles album, turned 50 years old this week. From Harrison’s mono-tone “One, two, three four…” opening of Taxman all the way to the end of Tomorrow Never Knows it’s just as solid as a record can be. Many call Revolver the best album the Beatles ever recorded, for my money that would be Rubber Soul. They just don’t make music like those anymore.
Speaking of terrible reality TV, Jack Osbourne on Sway in the Morning discussed his parent’s relationship, saying “They Don’t Have a Picture-Perfect Marriage”….yeah, no kidding. Is anyone who knows Ozzy Osbourne’s history really shocked he screws around on his wife Sharon? To be honest I’m shocked the dude is still alive.
My favorite headline of the week: “No, You Don’t Have to Worry (Much) About Getting Clobbered by an Asteroid”, Time.com…that’s good.
My second favorite headline: “Poop is spontaneously combusting in upstate New York”, Wired.com…that’s not so good.
For last week’s recap, just in case you missed any of my posts from the last week…
Tuesday: Can’t play
Wednesday: No news is good news
Thursday: Why I’m here and doing this again
Friday: The world we live in
Saturday: Just can’t get it right
And finally, your moment of Zen…
