Off-Topic Tuesday: Random Thoughts (Part 1)

Do you ever stop and think about the radio? I do. How in the world does that work, anyway? Songs float through the air and magically come out of your speakers. You can’t see them. They have no weight. But it works! Whoa!

I’m not getting my hopes up for the Lost season finale. Last year’s was a bit of a letdown (for me, at least), so I’m a bit nervous about Wednesday night. I think some major questions will be answered, but of course new questions will be raised. The show is obviously character-based. It’s clear that in order to have a proper “ending” to the show, the producers must make the audience care about the Lostaways, and have their eventual rescue (which will happen) be emotionally satisfying. “But what about the mysteries of the island, and the Others, and all that stuff,” you say? That makes for nice drama, but there are far too many nerds out there that have already thought of every plausible idea to “explain” those things. Trust me, the “explanation” won’t be mind-blowing, which is why our emotional attachment to the characters is the key. I definitely plan to discuss more Lost stuff in the future, maybe as early as next Tuesday. Let’s hope that the finale is a good one…

The buzz around the Borat movie has been picking up since this early review. By many accounts, this could be Spinal Tap-esque, especially if it is released unedited (DVD style). I’m disappointed that it isn’t set for release until November, but I think it will be worth the wait. I know JB will be excited to see it, and add some (true) stories of her own.

Looking for a great summer “chill out” CD? I recommend the new Zero 7 release, The Garden.

I resent your nerd comment! You are the one who sends me half the stuff I use in my write-ups?!?!?

"Nerd" is definitely a compliment nowadays. You should feel honored.
