Michael Moore is one of the most reviled men in the entire country because…uh…someone explain this to me again?
Reality TV continues to spiral out of control, and there still isn’t a single program that makes a damn bit of sense. (Look, Amazing Race producers…if ham-fisted bunchups are the only way to keep it competitive, maybe you should find contestants that are more evenly matched, for crying out loud.) I think it’s hit a plateau, though, and we’ll definitely see a dropoff in the near future. As for the original, Survivor, it’s still around, but it might be running out of gas.
Ken Jennings, after winning and winning and winning on the most popular game show in the country, finally went down…and is now set for life. Make of that what you will.
The war in Iraq continues. People are still dying. Atrocities are still being committed (on both sides). I still don’t know what the hell the point of this was.
Anna Kournikova looks like she’s finally hanging it up, freeing her to do whatever the heck she’s been doing besides tennis for like the past damn year or so. When future generations ask me how she was, I’ll say “She was pretty good…for a doubles specialist.”
Tiger Woods continues to fail to duplicate his phenomenal, once-in-a-millenium 2001 season, and sportswriters continue to act like it’s the most shocking thing ever.
Most of the fast food places I go to have discontinued their low-carb selections, and I don’t see a lot of them at supermarkets either, so that diet craze looks like it’s on its way out. Rest assured, however, that something equally asinine and completely removed from the original diet regimen will eventually come along.
Oh, and 1. the purists are virulently blasting Tokyopop’s rendition of Initial D 2. which is insanely popular and has gotten trainloads of rave reviews. Some things never change.
