It’s been a while, the longest while since I started this blog in fact. I got an email from Google last week letting me know that the site wasn’t mobile friendly anymore, so I logged on to fix it, and saw that I didn’t post anything at all here in 2014. I’ve still been online, just sharing my thoughts in other places like Twitter, Facebook and commenting on various other sites. I’ve added links to the menu above so you can check them out if you’re so inclined. I haven’t even really been that active on those places in the last few months because I always seem to be out of time.
In the years since I’ve started this blog, the amount of things available to fill my free time has grown considerably. I’ve upgraded my TiVo to a modern unit that’s capable of recording six channels at once. There’s shit on there from last year, entire seasons of shows that I haven’t got around to watching because there’s not enough time in the day. I still haven’t watched The Knick, Extant, or Gang Related (which I just learned was cancelled when I looked for the link to the show, that’s what I get for trying to avoid spoilers); I haven’t watched Halt And Catch Fire either and they added it to Netflix already, so I might as well delete those and make space for shit I won’t get around to watching until Christmas.

A lot of young people have been following me, and if they have something interesting or cool, I’ll follow them back. A lot of them have videos showing off their various skills: singing, playing music or sports, skateboarding, freestyle BMXing, doing gymnastics, dancing or any other number of things that kids do. I try to pass along an encouraging comment from time to time; to keep developing their talents, be mindful and safe, and so forth. I get the sense that many of them hope to pursue careers in entertainment, and it’s with that in mind that I write this. It’s not meant to be an end all, be all guide to the entertainment industry; it’s just my thoughts based on my experience. I’ll get to the advice, but to put it in context, let me tell you about Will. Continue reading →
Now, any reasonable adult who knows the definition of the word gangbang would surmise that Ms. O’Day misspoke, for whatever reason. Just for the sake of clarity, here’s the dictionary definition of gangbang, courtesy of Merriam-Webster, because they should know, right?
Surely, Ms. O’Day didn’t mean to suggest that there would be group sex or gang rape going on later in the proceedings. It was clear to me, and should have been to anyone with common sense, that Ms. O’Day was explaining that should their team lose, Arsenio Hall and Clay Aiken would join forces against Teresa Giudice in assigning responsibility for the failure. Simply put, Messrs. Hall and Aiken would gang up on Ms. Guidice, which I am certain what Ms. O’Day had meant to say.
