Oh reardon, this is dead on for us — hitormiss.org : American Idle.
MusicDish. Fascinating account of royalty accounting discussions in front of the Senate — MusicDish Industry e-Journal. I had little sympathy for the corporations in the recording industry before, this is eroding even that.
Smallville. Just saw the finale from last season. Clark/Chloe/Lana triangle, Lex vs his Dad. the threat of Clark’s exposure, mortal peril for everyone in Smallville, Lex after Clark’s secret, Smallville vs Lex, … Wow this is fun. We can’t wait for the season premiere next week.
Signs. A fun movie but come on (don’t read further if you haven’t seen yet). The aliens have the technology to travel interstellar space but have no weaponry, body armor, and can’t identify beforehand that an incredibly common earthly substance will put their invasion at risk? And humanity has a problem fighting off aliens who have no weaponry, body armor, or hand to hand combat ability? Ok I am overanalyzing. My kids liked it. I had fun too.
Lyrics. Useful lyrics site — A-Z Lyrics Universe. I was looking for the lyrics to Foreigner’s “That Was Yesterday” which has been stuck in my head:
But that was yesterday
I had the world in my hands
But it’s not the end of my world
Just a slight change of plans
A guilty pleasure. On a more fashionable note, the site also has the lyrics for all the White Stripes cds.
Jamie Kellner, chairman and CEO of Turner Broadcasting (an AOL Time Warner company), was recently interviewed by [INSIDE] on the future of television (Content’s King). In the interview, Mr. Kellner said some very interesting things, including characterizing those who skip television commercials as thieves:
[Ad skips are] theft. Your contract with the network when you get the show is you’re going to watch the spots. Otherwise you couldn’t get the show on an ad-supported basis. Any time you skip a commercial or watch the button you’re actually stealing the programming.
