Some things about today:
-It rained for most of the day. When I left work for lunch, it wasn’t raining heavily, but it was one of those things I was thinking about- and as I stepped outside, for some reason, I had November Rain in my head. And I was just about to start singing it when I noticed there were people around. So I kept my mouth shut.
-Even more embarassing than what I almost did: Al Sharpton’s latest entry into the annals of Great American Discourse. If you’re too lazy to click, the challenger in the New York City mayoral race has unveiled his latest commercial: Al Sharpton dancing. Yup, that’s it.
I don’t know who to feel sorry for, Sharpton, the loser he’s attempting to campaign for, or New York television viewers who have to watch Sharpton shake it. At least the Reverend isn’t wearing one of those purple sweatsuits he used to wear.
-Picked up the Revenge of the Sith DVD today. Haven’t really watched much, but there is one good sign: No Ben Burtt on audio commentary. I’m sure Burtt’s a nice guy and he’s definitely great at what he does, but I’d rather listen to Jethro Tull than Burtt on an audio commentary. He just yammers on about how he came up with sounds while other people are trying to contribute to plot points. Did we really need to know that he got a sound from a three legged dog in April 1973 while George Lucas is trying to talk about Vader being Luke Skywalker’s father?
At least there’s no Burtt commentary to the Sharpton commercial, I guess.
