--I’d put something about all the changes here, but @MigM_ did it all for me. Thanks Miguel!
I will say it’s a shame the route 1560 has decided to go, but I guess it was inevitable. Chance and Frank made commercial breaks not only tolerable, but enjoyable and in the biggest of upsets, memorable. They worked and succeeded in giving listeners not only memorable commercials, but memorable events. That first year anniversary week was some of the best drunken debauchery I’ve ever witnessed. Hell I took days off from 610 just to be among these higher up the dial animals. I don’t think it’s exaggerating to say they were the heart and soul of the station. Chank will be sorely missed there, but they will be appreciated by whoever is smart enough to hire them. BlueLightMagic.com. C’mon Shake Weights give them a shot!
--Has Bob Bradley been fired yet? Why the hell not?
--True Blood is back and, um yeah, True Blood is back. The seasons have progressively gotten worse for me though I loved every one of Russell Edgington’s scenes last season. This season I’ve read some early positive buzz, but I don’t know. The cast is just so freaking huge right now and there are so many different storylines and Tara is still alive. I do think it was nice to push the story ahead a year so they could reboot the characters. I just wasn’t a fan of the explanation concerning the time and fairies and all that. Did I mention Tara is not only alive, but a lesbian MMA fighter? Yet I imagine that’ll be less annoying to follow than more of Jason and those freaks in Hot Shot or Andy’s “V” addiction or Sam and his shifty friends or the boring storyline with Jessica and Hoyt or whatever the hell is going on with Sam’s brother and Hoyt’s mother. I’d be much happier with this show if it turned into Eric and Pam going to New York and opening up a Fantasia there with Lafayette as the chef.
--Writing of shows that have sputtered as they’ve gone on. Weeds. Like True Blood, Weed decided to jump ahead in time. Three years to be exact with Nancy’s release from prison to a halfway house. The boys have been living their “Plan C” life in Amsterdam where Shane’s
Michelle Trachtenberg may or may not be giving Nancy some problems. Perhaps even clothing optional.
--I still haven’t watched The Office finale, but I do like the possibility of James Spader coming in and taking over Kathy Bates’ role.
--Jason Sudeikis and Eva Mendes?! January Jones is one thing, but Eva Mendes?!
--Color me whatever the color is for mildly shocked after Justin B. was eliminated on Food Network Star this week. It’s not like he was a threat to win, but he was getting better. I think, “Mmmmm, shitake that’s good” speaks for itself. If the other Justin didn’t have hipster glasses he would be gone by now. One guy has a look, the other actual food chops. It’s not Look Network Star it’s Food Network Star, but I guess glasses and a defeatist attitude can get you far on that show.
--Louis C.K. Daily Show. Nothing more to write.
--I assumed Tom Sizemore was dead, but he’s joining Hawaii Five-0 so he may, in fact, be alive.
--Rachel Weisz and Daniel Craig are already married?!
--I have a feeling the second season of Boardwalk Empire is going to take season one into an alley and beat the crap out of it.
--Are you as ecstatic as I am that The Marriage Ref is back!
--Emma Stone instead of Hayden Panettiere in Heroes would’ve been awesome. Damn that was a fun show until that first season finale.
--I’ve been waiting a long time for David Haye to take on a Klitschko because Haye has the personality the heavyweight division desperately needs even if he’s not a true heavyweight. So I’ll take Haye to beat Klitschko Saturday for no real reason other than I’m really, really rooting for him.
--Like this trailer for War Horse although somehow I’m crying right now.
--I’m really loving David Chang’s scenes with Kim Dickens on Treme. Now I need some of those shrimp and grits.
--Yeah, taking a sample of dog crap and sending it to DNA Pet World Registry in order to fine the owner of said dog seems a little extreme. Then again we are talking about Florida. The fine could be up to $1,000 or if you prefer they’ll put a lien on your condo. You may want to read the article because it contains sentences like this, “Feces identification is a booming business.”
--Kris Jenner has decided NOT to change her last name back to Kardashian. Carry on.
--I haven’t heard one person say anything good about Green Lantern so of course a sequel is getting the go ahead.
Questions, comments or if you’re off to New Orleans to eat your weight in seafood and then Atlanta to visit Richard Blais’ Flip Burger and maybe, hopefully Kevin Gillespie’s Woodfire Grill…
