The Rundown 9/7/12

Whatcha gonna do when Bubba runs wild on you? - My wife accurately pointed out to me this week that the Democratic National Convention ran more like a WWE event than a political convention. The hype! The big names! President Obama's motorcade steadily approaching the arena while action takes place! And like a retired WWE legend being called in for a main event Wrestlemania stunt match, Bill Clinton lit things up with a rousing speech that proved he's still better at big money politics than anyone left in the game today. Here's to hoping Vince McMahon is allowed to produce at least one of the presidential debates.

Lay Lady Lay - The latest song to follow me around, I've heard it three different times in the past week in three different ways. On music choice, then at a thrift store, then on my ipod while in shuffle mode. This song I've liked since before I really paid attention to music. When I found out this was a Bob Dylan song about 20 years ago, I was surprised. Just doesn't sound like Dylan to me, I guess because it is not political and has a warm sound to it. Anyway, it's the jam of the week.

The Most Effectively Annoying Advertising Campaign - is Carl's Jr's Memphis BBQ Burger ads featuring two women who you know don't go near a burger like this in their own lives fighting with each other over a BBQ grill so they can stuff their meat down their throats. This ad is on saturation airplay mode in my area right now, it's on just about every channel in every ad break. It's on so much I'm thoroughly annoyed, but I remember it because of this so I guess I've fallen into their master plan. Damn you Carls Jr.

Time to close down The Newsroom - HBO's The Newsroom started off strong but I guess because it has a pretty decent cast the show turned into a hydra monster of subplots. As the first season drew to a close, my best summary is a decent show with too many actors.

Cookie Monster Batman -
this was just a random click on You Tube tonight, thought it was pretty funny.
