Out of the Blue

I mentioned those crazy KFC ads recently in my role as occasional amateur media critic, but the round of spots from the colonel has gotten weirder since we talked about the fake food bloggers and tweaker mom. They have now introduced stupefied by pot pie guy, who says "pot pie" nine times in 30 seconds if you count the time he mouths it. He does not come off as the sharpest of tacks, unless you compare him to insane chicken wings man, who asks his friends "what's the main problem in the world today," only to reply "no" to their suggestions, one of which is actually "war." He explains that the biggest problem in the world is "imposter chicken wings," noting that you wouldn't go to the car wash to get your teeth fixed. The thing about that is, the angle of the camera seems to intentionally show off that he apparently does have his teeth fixed at the car wash.

Speaking of music (post between this and my other one) anyone going to the Santana/Stewart tour? Thought about it....saw Santana with my father 15 years ago. Was a great show (and thank goodness for my mother, my father wanted to name me Santana - he owned a record store at the time "Sound Station 7").

Ticket prices are going to be ridiculous.

So, uh, do I dare ask what he DID name you? Page? Lennon? Bowie?

Nothing music related - my mother named me. Wrote my name on all the paperwork when my dad went to the pisser. ahhahahaha

(Turns out Mom was a HUGE DC Comics fan... )

"A high-protein diet during middle age makes you nearly twice as likely to die"

Great opening line there, "highly-lauded science journal." I stopped reading immediately. Rolleyes

It's an interesting article. The problem with studying high meat, low-meat, and vegetarian diets in modern times is that health conscious people typically take on other healthy habits like doing more exercise, avoiding drugs and alcohol, eating more whole and organic foods, etc. so it's difficult to suss out what benefits are high-protein (meat) related vs. related to the myriad of other habits such people have. By studying ancient people, there was no heath movement back then, so it's easier to do an apples to apples comparison.

My point was more toward that statement making no sense when everybody is 100% likely to die to begin with. How do you not proof-read the first sentence?

Yeah, but all those games means Prez has a reason to live.

Ya think? It's been 35 years since the original.
In his defense, it really has been an amazing 30-40 years for the fields of astrophysics, astronomy and the like. Basically everything got turned upside down more than once. Yes, amazing advances in many other fields (medicine, computers, etc.) have been made, but the others haven't gotten turned onto their heads as much or as often as what is covered in 'Cosmos'.

Oh, exactly. I wasn't making fun of Tyson, I was saying "Well, duh." to the journalist.

Any small business owners here with cross-border business experience. I'm trying to find what it's going to take to bring my products to the US on a limited basis - weekends at craft fairs/farmers markets - initially. I'm surprised by what a PITA it is finding this information online. Hell, I even wrote the US Embassy here asking if they had any advice and the bastards never replied. I'm guessing I have to speak to customs and the IRS for sure, but I'm wondering how it would work state by state as I'd like to do a bordertown circuit from Milwaukee to Buffalo.

Springsteen site has photo's up of his two concerts here last weekend. http://brucespringsteen.net/
We went to the March 1st show & it just went off.
This was the last leg of a 6 week tour through South Africa, Australia & New Zealand, they completely delivered, 30 songs 3 hours of non stop quality.
The dude still has the energy & voice of his 30 year old self.
Crazy good concert.
Heres the setlist http://goo.gl/bLH39B

Re: Transformers, they're all terrible movies IMO. Bay is just the wrong director for the role but he's perfected his craft of distracting the masses with boomboom and hackneyed plots so I have to give him credit because they print money.

I was actually cheering when the line "the age of the transformers is ending" (or the like) came up...

I have to admit I had some nostalgia tingles when I saw the original mack truck from the series. After that it was standard Bay.

I like the first movie. It was partially produced by Steven Speilberg, and it's postulated that the relationship between Bumblebee and Witwicky was his idea. The second movie was just an action fest, and kind of boring, IMO. The third one I turned off half an hour in. I couldn't stand it. Especially Witwicky, who was just an A-hole. I'll be skipping this one.

All of this is partially my fault, as I keep showing up at the theater going "This one will be better, this one will be better, oh fuck it's not better, IT'S NOT BETTER!"
