I’m in one of those moods today when it comes to this blog. I’ve got approximately four things that are really bothering me today.
TONY BLAIR: I used to really like Tony Blair. I remember seeing him on BBC News feeds before Queen’s, thinking he looked like a man who actually had a sense of what to do to save Britain from itself. He seemed to actually know what he was talking about, what with stylin’ suits and talk of a New Labour.
That was before Iraq.
Now, I actually find Blair’s smug, Bush-lite persona almost insufferable, and his tut-tut attitude today about the global climate change issue rings as hallow as can be. Please Blair. Stop. Just stop. Nobody is listening anymore. You’ve got a few months left – stay quiet and don’t ruin it for Gordon Brown.
SONY CORP: Here’s a question – how many people have a fetish for Sony? All hands, come on! Nobody eh? Meh, I don’t blame you. Sony’s in deep, deep trouble these days – they’ve had the battery recall issue, a mega failure with their re-branded Walkman, and now they’re spending ginormous amounts of cash on commercials for the Playstation 3, which costs in Canadian dollars more than $750. $750 for a gaming system, eh Sony? You think they’d eat their crow a bit and price this sucker down a little for those of us who have bills to pay but long for the high-resolution goodness that is the Ps3.
THE SIMPSONS: Wow guys, bringing back Kang and Kodos – again. How many times is this now for a Treehouse of Horror episode? What, nine times? Jeez, you’d think this joke would get tiresome, but no.
TRAFFIC GOING TO WORK: You know what should be done in Scarborough? Add in another highway. No really, I know this sounds crazy, but driving on McCowan in the mornings and afternoons is just too crazy.
And now, for a random picture…
Aren’t these the best-looking Eurotrash people ever?
In other news…
* Please, do give my buddy Neate props – he’s earned an amazing number of hits on his blog in only six months. Better yet, visit his site.
* I have a suggested list of good movies to watch tomorrow night for Halloween. These are my personal favourites and are by no means a definitive list, but I think they’re perfect horror films for Halloween. In no particular order, they are:
– The Exorcist
– The Omen
– Nightmare on Elm Street
– Bram Stoker’s Dracula (the 1992 version)
