I would like to sleep soon, but, at the same time, I want to get these few things off my chest. So I’ll make it brief and random here.
I thought the Giants were gonna win the game earlier today, until I caught them at the exact right time: when they gave up their lead for the other team to tie it. The last time I saw them, they gave up another run and the bases were loaded for the opponent. So I will leave it at this:
Say something nice about the Giants super-slump: at least I may (may!) not have to worry about them playing in the Playoffs/World Series during my birthday in late October. Like I really want to worry over baseball games on my 30th birthday. Maybe on my 31st next year. But a girl turns 30 only once. And I don’t want that ruined by baseball!
After being curious over the movie for a while, I finally got to see a bit of that 90s cult classic, Showgirls. On VH1 late night, naturally. I think some parts got taken out, just like porn on cable. I like how they blurred the female lead’s boobs with a nude “bra” instead of the classic black bar/pixelated squares. The movie aired at 2 in the morning; it’s OK to show female nipples at that time, now. Like nipples are more vulgar than those God-forsaken reality shows VH1 also airs. There was this show called “#Candidly Nicole” (whoever the hell she is) that aired right after Showgirls. Really? Now there’s stupid hashtags attached to the names of TV shows these days? Puh-fucking lease. A hashtag is more unsightly than female nipples.
Farewell to two amazing human beings…
*1951-2014* (This one stunned me. How he passed on was heart-breaking.)
*1924-2014* (She may not have gotten as much attention as the passing of Williams, but still sad to see a Hollywood legend of that true Golden Era leave this increasingly-wretched world, nonetheless.)
And a happy birthday to one of the true superstars in entertainment today…
Still THE Queen of Pop. (Only her daughter is the real heiress to her throne. Not any of the pop tarts of today.) Fuck what you’ve heard.
Anyone else tired over that new ice-bucket “challenge” craze? Yeah, I know it’s summer, and ice-cold water in the hot weather, yeah yeah. Now if I see that being done in the cold-ass winter, then maybe I’ll be interested. Hell, the boiling-hot nacho cheese bucket-dump “challenge” sounds more appealing. At least you don’t waste water in that case! (Looking at you Californians doing this shit.)
**Update 8/17: Apparently, the whole ice-bucket challenge thing is all part of raising awareness for ALS. OK. I’m sure that stuff has been mentioned in the news, but I didn’t see it because maybe it came after a segment where they mentioned “tweet” and I had to turn my TV off to clean my ears out. So much for just simply handing a check to the cause you support–assuming all these celebs actually do support raising awareness for ALS. Still think the gimmick is becoming played out. Next fad!
