Blowout

I posted a mini-blog prior to this blog. I hope that I didn't confuse any of you with the multiple postings. Where to begin . . . what to blog about. . . ?

It's interesting to think about where we are in the world. My friend Steve has, on his blog, a short snippet from the Conan O'Brien show, and he's (Conan, not Steve. Thank you Scott.) interviewing a comedian whose bit is: We are living in the most amazing time, but no one is happy. My favorite line is about the newest technology; being able to access the Cyberspace while flying through the air in a metal tube. (Airplanes.) They fly over the Bermuda Triangle, or Wyoming - what have you - and lose their internet connection. The guy sitting next to him gushes: "This is Bull----" (I realize that it's my own blog and I don't need to bleep out the remainder of the word, but I have a problem with typing shit.) {yes. Mark. I know that most of what I type is ----, very witty, good for you.} (Where was I?) [oh yes.]

I can't believe that they replaced Terrance Howard with Don Cheadle for the sequel to Iron Man. An upgrade for sure, but even T.H. was caught off guard. He was told on a radio interview that he was being replaced, and the reason was due to financial differences. Terrance didn't know anything about it. Awkward. I guess Hollywood realizes that if they can't tell the difference between two black actors, neither will we. Perhaps they should have Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man) reprise his role from Tropic Thunder and play the black character himself. That way Rhodie can still have blue eyes.

That's all.

Nice use of brackets. I'm always very impressed by proper punctuation. In fact, it really turns me on. Whew! I'll be right back...
