I Want To Run Away With You

6 May
I want to run away with you
To somewhere warm and breezy too
The only thing I ask or two
Is No Polar Bears
We will travel by night by train
Through the dark and pouring rain
Excuse me if I should refrain
But Absoutly No Polar Bears
As long as you are there
With your skin so fair
Just not me in my underwear
Being Eaten By Polar Bears
Alternate Ending:
In the morning when the sun arise
If I find to my surprise
A Polar Bear has Eaten Your Eyes
Then I will say: I told you so…
Alternate Alternate Ending:
Rose are red
Violets are blue
That big ol’ Polar Bear
Has his eyes on you
Alternate Alternate Inception/Poe Ending:
They sailed off into the distance
On a boat built for three
Him, his love, and a Polar Bear
Alternative Dr Suess Ending:
A Polar Bear Named Ned
Danced On The Head
Of A Ziggy Wed Bed
And Ate Bread 
With Your Head
Alternative Shel Silverstein Ending:
The Polar Bear rocked the lovers to sleep
After giving up his fur, his claws, and his feet
Deciding that was way too sweet
Buried the lovers deep
In concrete
Alternative Metallica Ending:
Exit Polar Bear
Enter Night
Eat my hand
Run Away To North Pole Land
*Insert guitar riff here*

My Simplistic Review of HBO’s The Newsroom

11 Jul

I love HBO original programming.

The current schedule HBO is offering is incredible.

First you have Boardwalk Empire which originally I only tuned in to see Steve Buscemi, but ended up being hooked on the show. It is about prohibition in Atlantic City at the turn of the century. (The 1900s, not the 2000s!)

Then there’s Veep with Julia Louis-Dreyfus. It’s a bit talky for me, but as a teenager I had a crush on Julia when she was on Saturday Night Live. As with all Louis-Dreyfus stuff it’s awkward funny.

Girls is another show. It’s really quirky. You have to stick with it a little while to get into it. It is only a half hour long, so I watched it while waiting for True Blood to come back on the air.

*Lena Dunham in Girls

And of course, Game of Thrones. If your not watching this show, you should be, but you have to start at the beginning…don’t be doing that watch one episode in the middle of season 3 thing and then declare it was the stupidest thing ever.

The only complaint I have on Game of Thrones is I can’t keep track of anyone’s names. The cast, as I have it, consists of: the midget, the queen, the little girl, her sister, the stupid boy king, the midget’s friend, the cripple, the dragon girl who used to get naked a lot but now doesn’t, the scar face man, the gay king…there’s more, but I think you see where I’m going with this…

So now there is The Newsroom. It’s about a cable TV network’s newsroom.

The End.

No, just joking. It has Jeff Daniels in it, playing the same character he played in Dumb and Dumber.

No, just joking again. He is playing an asshole news anchor who is more worried about his likability with the audience then his likability with anyone or anything else.

*Jeff Daniels in The Newsroom

The show was created by Aaron Sorkin, so you know there is going to be lots of dialogue and lots of people walking and talking in tight corridors. (A la West Wing and Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip)

There are some supporting characters as well: his ex-girlfriend now producer, another producer, a up and coming producer, a producer who left, an Indian guy, and a really hot chick that sits in the background a lot and only says one or two things in a single show.

It’s pretty good so far, but they do talk a lot of politics…and I’m just not into politics that much, so I’m not sure exactly what they are talking about. But I do like Jeff Daniel’s asshole character which fills a void that House M.D. left when it went of the air.

*Apparently in all HBO promo shots, the actors have to have the same far-off stare look.
