Actually, I suppose this is less cultural and more just, "Random Thoughts on Current Events" - but that isn't alliterative, is it?
Kanye West - Yes, kids, I saw it live and sat, on the couch, with my mouth hanging open for a solid 10 minutes. He is an asshat, and anyone who thinks he is a 'man' because he took the mic away from a 95 lb. little girl (I'm looking at YOU, #VMA Tweeters) is just as big an asshat. Is he related to Michael Vick? Seriously. Talk about a total absence of impulse control.
Twilight - I. Am. Dy-ing. There is no way I can make it until 20 November to see New Moon. I am obsessed. I'm re-reading New Moon for the ::mumble:: time...WHY is a grown woman so completely...obsessed...with these stories? It makes no sense. But I don't care - I'm still 20 years old on the inside and as long as I don't look in the mirror, I can believe I'm still as young as the characters. Plus, I [heart] Jacob.
Patrick Swayze - I really don't like any of his movies, and thought he pretty much, um, sucked as an actor (I know, I know, don't speak ill of the dead). But bless his soul. No one deserves to die from Pancreatic Cancer. What a slow, torturous death.
Okay, Dirty Dancing wasn't awful, but only because it birthed the line, "Nobody puts Baby in a corner."
Brian Urlacher - He is the Chicago Bears'...well, he IS the Chicago Bears. And now he's out for the season. Separated his wrist during the Bears first regular-season game. You know the Chicago sports fans' mantra, right? "There's always next year." ::sigh::
Rep. Joe Wilson - Can't the rest of the U.S. just disown South Carolina? Seriously. The Civil War (sorry, Southerners, The War of Northern Aggression) started in South Carolina. Their Governor is a raging sack of hormones who can't keep his mouth shut, and now Joe Wilson. Not to mention his supporters who have thrown $250k at him since his outburst. Has anything good besides Shrimp and Grits ever come from that state?
Jay Leno - Meh.
So that's all the commentary I have for the day...possibly the week. What's been eating at you lately?
