Couple of items today on a Friday.
HURRICANE: Want proof that
global warming climate crisis is here for real? Aside from the strange weather hitting eastern Canada and the U.S. Northeast this winter (and even now, with snow and ice on the ground, it’s still not really super cold), this is just freaky. Any wonder why the environment is now the number one issue among Canadians? It’s about time. Maybe this guy can do something – anything – to make Canada an environmentally-sustainable nation.
Idea, though – if the Green Party wins seats in the next federal election (and it looks more and more likely they will this time) in a few months, would the Liberal Party, if the Grits were in yet another minority government position (no Canadians seem in a mood to give either Liberals or Conservatives a majority at this point, would you after the last three years?), invite the Greens into a coalition government in a bid to fend off the Conservatives? Might be worth considering as a Plan B option.
CELEBRITY BIG BROTHER U.K.: Not sure why this story is getting as much attention as it is (or the fact the show has near-zero interest in North America), but man, could it be any more obvious that Danielle Lloyd, Jo O’Meara and Jade Goody are just a wee bit jealous of Shilpa Shetty? Because I can’t think of a single good reason (other than being just plain Jane racists) why they’d do what they did. Here’s a small comparative chart between the four women’s star gravitas to demonstrate my point, bearing in mind I’m Canadian and I presume these people are “stars” in the U.K…
Danielle Lloyd – Once did Playboy. Not much else.
Jo O’Meara – Used to be in a teen pop band in the late 90’s. Now officially in has-been territory.
Jade Goody – Who?
Shilpa Shetty – International Bollywood megastar with Hollywood career on the horizon, loved by millions… oh, and here’s a photo.
Case made, thanks!
Next post should feature a list of some really good movies coming out this winter/spring. Here’s a brief sampler of the really big releases – Smokin’ Aces, Venus, 300, Blood and Chocolate, Ghost Rider, Black Snake Moan, Zodiac.
Also made the discovery a few days ago that 28 Weeks Later is coming out on May 11th – it’s the sequel to 28 Days Later from a few years back.
GOLDEN GLOBES: I know it’s a few days late, but just wanted to say, it’s great to see Ugly Betty (and America Ferreria) win. Right there with 24, Battlestar Galactica and The Office, it’s one of the best shows on television. Period.
Still, would it have hurt the awards organizers to have made the show more, you know, fun?
