Funny is in the Eyes of the Beholder
While I was away, the powers that be at my local radio station, decided to fire the morning crew, who I have been listening to for as long as I can remember, to bring in syndicated Shock Jock, Howard Stern. Now you may think it's no big deal because I can just listen to another station, except... I listen to Alternative music and it was the only station. Everyone else is Pop and Country, these guys played the old stuff and the new stuff. Echo and the Bunnymen, old INXS, The Smiths, The Violent Femmes, Blink 182, Greenday, all of it. Now I have this jerkface talking all morning. I'm not a prude. Trust me, on an Alternative station, the morning crew was not for the faint hearted. They were funny as all get out, but we're now the only local station that carries Howard. Looking for numbers I gather. Big Whoop de doo. I refuse to listen. I don't find him funny. At all. I find him crude and not the least bit humorous, not even in a 'Can you believe he actually said that!' kind of way. So over the next few weeks I will be going to my local music store and looking for some of the stuff I like on disk, to get me through the mornings. The Buzz was a good station. Leave it to the bottom line to destroy it.
I'll also be paying a visit to my local bookstore as I, Robot comes out this week and I have been saying I wanted to read it before it was released! John and Beth both recommended it as a book they loved and I don't want it to be ruined by the movie. (I can't find the right link to her blog post about the books. I ran through her archives, but it didn't pop out at me. So you have to believe me that they had it on their lists!) Movies are never as good as the books.
Blogging early today. Hoping to spend quality time with my spouse as I've not seen him in what seems like an eternity.
