  • Rock of Ages this weekend.  Looking forward to it.
  • I hope that when Tim Tebow has a special friend he keeps it to himself, and I hope when the press hounds him about it he tells them to mind their own business.
  • I’m escalating the attack on my weight again.  I’m still 17 pounds of my high, but I was 32 off.  Details to follow.  Hate this shit.  Wish me luck.
  • The Anheuser-Busch rep was at Publix last weekend, so I made buddies and asked him about the recent absence of Budweiser American Ale.  They weren’t moving enough of it, so they don’t get it anymore.  That’s too bad; it’s actually quite a nice beer.  He talked me into buying a sixer of Bud Light Platinum, which unfortunately might be the most disgusting beer I’ve ever tasted.  It’s cloying, with a huge off-aftertaste.  After I had two—the second to confirm my initial opinion, though much colder—I gave two of the remainders to my dad (who had it watching the Super Bowl and actually liked it) and the other two to a colleague (who teased me about it).  Avoid.
  • You know those computer-generated images that just look like a bunch of nothing, but then you can look at them in a certain way and three-dimensional images begin popping out of them?  I’ve never once been able to see one of those.
  • Lots of people who should know better are fawning over the “new” “Van Halen” record.  This is a bad case of the emperor’s new clothes, folks.
  • Nathan is beginning to get the whole “brevity is the soul of wit” thing; that if one time is funny, then four times is not necessarily hilarious.  In addition to his father’s counsel, I credit his fanhood of Seinfeld and The Three Stooges.

  1. I, too, have never been able to see those magic images.

  2. We are going too; ROA, Saturday night show.

  3. I’ve always been able to see those images.

    Saw ROA matinee today. It was ok, but didn’t move me like Momma Mia did. Some of the singing was just off.

  4. We dug the show! Great time.
