The plane crash late Friday that very near killed former Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker really messed me up! Four others were killed and his good friend DJ AM was badly burned. Travis was also burned, from the waist down. Speedy recoveries to both men; I hope they can not only heal from their physical scars, but the emotional ones as well. This is a true tragedy! You guys remember Blink-182 right? Here's their most famous song.
It doesn't surprise me that the Emmy Awards last night were the lowest-rated ever. God bless Josh Groban, but I found this bit to be a bit retarded. I used to love awards shows, but lately I'm finding them to be a veritable waste of time! It's fun I guess to watch all those people in the biz dressed up and receiving these little golden statuettes and giving their acceptance speeches and stuff, but I think I've come to the point where I look at these humanoids up on stage and think to myself: "Who cares about these overpaid good-looking assholes anyway?" To be honest, I really don't watch television anymore. I used to be a TV junkie, but then the Internet came along, and I grew up and I just don't find most television as interesting. YouTube is where it's at folks! I do watch TV on weekends, and do like certain shows like Smallville, Reaper, Supernatural, SNL, and MADtv, but there seems to be so much of an overload and who really has all that time to watch the hundreds of cable channels and offerings on the boob tube anyway?! And the exorbitant amount of reality shows nowadays is just ridiculous! Hence, why I love The Soup and that adorable Joel McHale (and cute little chihuahua Lou), who summarizes the dumbing down of America very nicely every week!
I sang these three songs at karaoke last night, and the crowd showered me with their approval! It's nice to feel like a star sometimes:
