It’s Medicinal!! I Swear!

April 16, 2009


Where has THIS been all my life?

By combining nitrous oxide with video games, patients are now comfortably sedated and distracted during medical procedures…

Distraction, comfort and sedation??  Isn’t that all gamers want out of life anyway?

I only follow a few shows on television and of those only one has a plot – House M.D. 

We live in the age of DVR and I fully embrace it.  I’m usually an episode or two behind in House and I look forward to taking in a mini-marathon of new episodes every couple of weeks.

Imagine my frustration yesterday when the headline on 3 different news sites featured the shocking suicide of one of the characters on Monday night’s episode (complete with character name and photo).

Spoiler much?

I was seriously hacked.  So last night I sat down and didn’t enjoy a single minute of the two new episodes I watched because I knew exactly what was going to happen.

Why did this character of all television suicides make national headlines and ruin the surprise for thousands of viewers?

Because the actor left the show to go work for Obama .

I !*$#ing hate politics.

Fresh Prince of Dimension X

April 1, 2009

I learned a long time ago that the voices of Eeyore and Optimus Prime were done by the same guy.  For some reason that changed my life a little bit.  Two things from my childhood having so little to do with one another suddenly being connected was a weird revelation. 

This weekend it happened again.  Sunday night I discovered that the guy who played Uncle Phil on Fresh Prince of Bel-Air is the same guy that did the voice for The Shredder on the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon.  Imagination fully in overdrive, I’m now picturing Shredder throwing D.J. Jazzy Jeff out of his mansion and a quirky black family inhabiting the Technodrome. 

You know what, guys?  I’m beginning to think there just might be something wrong with me…
