Wow, how often is it that there are two television programs that I'm interested in watching, airing at the same time? Pretty frequently, probably, I just never notice. In this case, it's Condi Rice and a Frontline
about obesity and the diet industry. Sample quote: "What's amazing is that people can live in this environment and not
become obese." Will they come around to saying that fat people are themselves to blame? Yes. We've just got to eat healthier, and less, and exercise more. Eureka. "Nobody ever got rich selling self-control." Ooh, if things keep going the way they are, obesity will pass smoking among preventable causes of death for Americans.
Update: there's also an episode of Making the Band II
on. I should watch more television. Or much, much less. Also, how silly is the lightly-customizable Toyota Scion
And, upon some recommendation from who knows where, probably one of these places
, I decided to listen to Beatallica. Let me diplomatically say that one would have to be a very, very big Metallica fan to find this even slightly enjoyable. It was like... was anyone, I mean anyone in the world, watching Jim Breuer
's bit on MTV's Metallica
tribute program? I thought pot was supposed to make things funny. Colin Quinn
said that, about Breuer, at a Comedy Central roast for himself. And Colin Quinn
, I think we can all agree, knows something about not funny.
Though not perhaps as much as Dennis Miller
. Have you seen that talk show of his? Nobody else has, either. It's like the Daily Show
, only it's on CNBC
, it's just Dennis Miller
and it's just not funny.
