More TV STuff

Brilliant But Cancelled is a website that is actually an NBC Universal product, maybe we'll see some of the old surface episodes.

Current TV is working with Comcast, here is how they say it works:
Anyone who wants to contribute can upload a video. Then, everyone in the Current online community votes for what should be on TV. You can join in at either stage -- watch & vote or make video. (We've also got online training to help you get the skills you need to make TV!)
This isn't a "cut the crap button but possibly a good trend in television.

Okay, This isn't about TV but have you ever wanted to go to space? Currently, I don't see too many ways short of alien abduction, that a "regular person"(whatever that is) can get there. Celestis will take you there, but only if your dead!!

Finally, The epic drama "Heroes" chronicles the lives of ordinary people who discover they possess extraordinary abilities. Find the rest of the write-up at The Futon Critic Maybe we'll get hooked on this show and they can cancel it!!!

Is it me or does TV SUCK? Please Tell Me!!

I'd like to start an anti-television group.

I am sick of the programming that is coming my way. Networks and
many viewers, are stuck on "Reality" shows.
What "reality" are they presenting.
Watch people cat fighting, lying and being unscrupulous so they can win.
I try to avoid people like that.

When I watch TV I want to be entertained.
That happens now is when I rent a DVD.

The past season had some good prospects, but they were short lived.
The Invasion Series and The Surface series were both cancelled.

Too much money? Had to pay writers and actors!!

I am mystified by the popularity of shows like American Idol.
I mean these performers aren't even doing original music.

Do any of these people ever listen to the radio?

Whatever happened to Music Videos?
MTV's programmed music out of there schedule.

I gotta go, Pimp My Ride is coming on. AHHHHH

From yesterday's Wall Street Journal:
Googles Blogspot Making the News

July 24, 2006; Page R11

• The Sound of Young America
San Francisco resident Jesse Thorn, 25, champions the underground
comic with his blog. The site features a popular podcast where Mr.
Thorn interviews some of the nation's top talent and comics
occasionally perform sketches. "With only a couple of mass-media
outlets for comedy, one of my goals is to help get all the great
comedy that's bubbling up from the underground noticed," says Mr.
Thorn, who produces the podcast from his living room.

The blog revolves around the podcast, offering Mr. Thorn a platform
for news, commentary and "other bits and bytes that wouldn't work on
the air," he says. Sometimes readers offer dispatches from the field.
For example, one reader wrote about comedian Dave Chappelle's recent
surprise drop-in show at The Punchline in San Francisco.

1. If your throat tickles, scratch your ear.

When you were 9, playing your armpit was a cool trick. Now, as an adult, you can still appreciate a good body-based feat, but you're more discriminating. Take that tickle in your throat; it's not worth gagging over. Here's a better way to scratch your itch: "When the nerves in the ear are stimulated, it creates a reflex in the throat that can cause a muscle spasm," says Scott Schaffer, M.D., president of an ear, nose and throat specialty center in Gibbsboro, New Jersey. "This spasm relieves the tickle."
