Why SNL Sucks

We all know Saturday Night Live is rarely funny. But there was something odd about the way it was being filmed this season. A couple weeks ago I mentioned it to Pat who suggested that they might be filming for HDTV and ignoring the standard TV format. And that's exactly it. Check out this clip from this weekend: in HDTV, we'd be able to see who the server is. But now we have no idea and the joke is ruined for the 90% of their audience who is watching on regular TV. There have been problems like this all season. It's bad enough when the writing isn't funny, but when the camera work is actually hiding the jokes from people, well that's just idiotic.

Fiscal Responsibility

I had a message on my machine when I came home yesterday:

"This is Dr. Killpatient's office, we have an issue with your billing..."
Crap, I guess I never paid them.

"...Regarding check number 1357 in the amount of forty-seven dollars..."
Crap, I guess I did pay them but the check bounced.

"...That's a repeat payment; your account is already paid in full."

It seems I will either pay a bill twice or not at all. I just can't seem to figure out how to get a bill, pay it, and then be done with it.

Lost Sucks

There. I've said it. I am the first to admit that I don't understand what is going on. Not that anyone does, but I can't even remember who is alive or dead or still on the island. I don't even know if they're still punching in the numbers or not. But even people who do follow the show very closely will say "Lost is great! It's my favorite show! They just better start giving us some answers soon." Here's the thing: people were saying that exact same thing LAST year. So we gave Lost an entire second season to start delivering the goods and we got squat. Now it's season 3. Oh! We know Sawyer's first name! La-de-frickin' da. And when was the last time anything good happened to any of the characters? I think it may have been when Hurley found the jar of peanut butter. Great.

The writers of Lost are laughing at us, America. I am absolutely convinced that they don't know what's going on either. There is no master plan. They're just making it up as they go along. It's time for all of us to stand together and say "we're sick of your crap" and change the channel.

Two years ago I declared this to be the Creepiest Commercial Evar. There is a new commercial out which will take the title of Most Disturbing Commercial Evar.

See for yourself
