Flixster will remain autonomous? Yeah right! So much for Rotten Tomatoes too

Warner Bros. has bought Flixster and Rotten Tomatoes.  Can you say Jump The Shark?

I am not saying Flixster, nor Rotten Tomatoes has jumped the shark yet.  I am saying if you remember the popular Jump The Shark website and know what the TV Guide website did to it after buying it do not be surprised if you see Flixster and Rotten Tomatoes done somewhat the same way.

While I do not see WB whole heatedly dismantling those sites as JTS was done, I do see them over lording the sites with ads for their films and filtering out negative reviews about those films.

Of course there will still be IMDB for independent viewer reviews of movies if that happens.  Oh, and for those that do remember and miss JTS you can always check out Bone The Fish.

Ke$ha is annoying me

So lately when I flip radio stations I often hear the latest Ke$sha song, "  It annoys me.  You had one good song and ever since then a bunch of crap.

This place about to blow..your singing is about to make me blow, chunks that is.  So shut your mouth.

But the yellow part is the good part

I like eggs.  I should be watching my cholesterol.   Everything I read says just eat the egg whites.  Simple.  Problem solved right? Uh, wrong!

Duh! Hello, the yolk is the yummy part.  Do the people writing articles about eggs stop the think about what they are saying? Just eat the white part?  How about you just drive in reverse?! Just the white part, get real.

Most people I know would rather not eat eggs at all  if they cannot eat the whole thing.  Sure, I have eaten just the white part mixed in some tuna salad.  Overall though, if I were to stop eating the yolk I would say my egg consumption would drop 90%.  Thus I would greatly lose out on the protein benefit of said white part.

So here is to you oh delicious egg yolk.  You taste so good with buttery toast and a side of bacon!

Donald Trump White House's worst nightmare or GOP's worst nightmare?

The Donald, Donald Trump, claims he is the White House's worst nightmare.  Perhaps, but what if he is the worst nightmare for the GOP in their bid for regaining the presidency?

Can Donald Trump be any more obvious that he is saying all the things he thinks right wingers want to hear? He sounds so much like a caricature he is going to make most intelligent people, regardless of ideology suspicious of him.  The problem is, not everyone is intelligent.

Hence, he is just another name for the Grand Old Party to choice from.  Normally, I would blow him off and say it does not matter, because he will not end up being their golden selection.  With his money though, I would not count him out.

Were he to win the primary though, then all bets are off.  When it is boiled down to just the top few people running for the White House (really two since everyone unfortunately ignores anyone that is non-Republican or Democrat) then all of the media will bombard him with questions and hit him with things they have dug up from his background, but are saving up.

Right now Donald Trump sounds like he is going by some Conservative play book. First he questions Obama's birth certificate.  Next he gives cookie cutter answers and cute little stories anyone could easily make up to back his supposed stances.

His friend that almost had an abortion and now loves their child after not going through with it? That could be real, and it better be. The Donald better be ready to give out their name and bring them into the public to prove his story too.

Better watch out Donald Trump, or you might be the one who is fired.

Charlie Sheen bombed live? Duh!

Well of course Charlie Sheen bombed on the first night of his live show.

What were fans expecting? His is a ranting, raving lunatic who is desperate after getting fired by CBS.

So now some suckers pay to hear his ranting and raving and are disappointed? You should be embarrassed to even admit you paid good money to see Charlie Sheen live.  That is like admitting you got conned by a crackhead.  Oh wait, you did!
