The Krypton Factor


As some of you know, I am a big fan of Britsh gameshows and I am blessed that YouTube exists (and that the UK networks lawyers are not that eager to prosecute).

This program, The Krypton Factor, is not for the timid. It is a series of mental and physical tests that take the brain to its limit.

It was tried twice in America, once with Dick Clark, and the other for kids with Eight is Enough star Willie Aames.

This version of the show just debuted in the UK.

BTW, Fox tried to get a version of this show on the air here. The pilot was never shown...I guess it would probably fry the brains of the audience of their news channel.

Have "Mercy!"

@DeidreHall good for NBC. Watched the new doctor series last night...woman doc back from Iraq. Great writing and chemistry. It's TIVO'd!! Check it out.


End quote. Enjoy.

Welcome to Cougar Town

I do get nervous anytime I see a new series, but after 10 minutes of Cougar Town, I'm hooked.

By the way, as much as I love Courtney (and she is playing a key role in my Heroes fanfic ;-)), Busy Philips is a stone fox!

Enjoy.

You lying, stinking,scheming, nasty, sack of liquid crap! (plink..plink)

You have probably seen this ad in your major market newspaper a few days ago. It was trumpeting that Fox News Channel seemed to be the only news outlet in America to cover the Pissed-Off White People's.....errrrr....Tax Protest rally last Saturday.

Now, forget estimates about who showed up....anywhere from 35K to 2 Million, depending on who you ask and who's side they're on. It was a lot of people, and that usually means cameras. But if you read this ad, you would think that FNC was the only outlet that covered what was essentially a publicity stunt for FNC's Glenn Beck and his 9/12 Project.

But what Fox is finding out is that you do not lie in a promo. Especially when one of the targets has under their hire on Rick Sanchez.

He's cute when he's pissed.

But it was not just CNN.......You said NBC did not missed the story......so what's this??

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/21134540/vp/32813988#32813988


Here is coverage from CBS News, properly connecting the march to the "9/12 Project":


http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2009/09/14/opinion/main5310007.shtml?tag=contentMain;contentBody

CBS also " said it had 'multiple crews' at the rally and made it the lead story on the "CBS Evening News." CBS Radio News offered hourly reports and CBSNews.com had the story in its rotating lead throughout the day" (http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2009/09/18/ap/entertainment/main5321951.shtml?tag=contentMain;contentBody)



Oh....and talk about "missing the story?" Here is a ABC/GMA report ANTICIPATING that rally the day before: http://abcnews.go.com/video/playerIndex?id=8554528 And here is another ABC/GMA report the day after: http://abcnews.go.com/video/playerIndex?id=8560056.



Missed the story? You jackasses CREATED the God-damned story.



And not only created it....you egged it on! Here is a story from Media Matters. Notice the two videos. The one on top shows a producer egging on the sheep. The bottom shows the finished product. http://mediamatters.org/blog/200909180037

And I can go on. From the non-fact checking on that ACORN video that had the worker going BORAT on your asses, to the fact that you announced that the Pope was dead days before he really died, all the way to the Thursday after 9/11 when you boasted that there was a little pocket under that rubble where there were survivors, food, and water. In reality, no food, no water. No survivors.

In being a editorial cheerleader for the right, you have no equal. But as a news organization, you have no business calling yourselves journalists.

The Difference between Us and Them.

The cringeworthyness of what has been coming out of the mouths of our daily bloviators on both sides has been one of the myriad reasons for my near-nervous breakdown of the past week. I am being very serious when I tell you that it got so bad that suicide truly was an option, for I could no longer function on a planet gone haywire.

But there have been things that have caused me to back off. The caring of friends on and off line. And this:

Monday, Keith Olbermann declared war on Glenn Beck. After Beck's relentless hammering of Van Jones, which lead to his sneaking-Sally-down-the-alley resignation on Saturday night (supposedly to miss the bedtimes of the Sunday papers.....they still don't understand Twitter), Olbermann came on TV from 30 Rock with both guns blazing

But the difference between "us" and "them" is that "we" sometimes listen to common sense....or whatever passes for that. And on rare occasions....we actually heed:



http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MSwvA84kJ3g

A couple of things. It was weaved-around throughout Olbermann's monologue and interview, but the real ememies here are not Beck or Jones or Olbermann. It is the very zombies Olbermann talks about. These zombies....aka, the American people....believed all the bullshit about Obama being a Kenyan, a Marxist, a racist, possibly even the guy at NBC who ordered the death of Elle Bishop on Heroes. Of course he's none of those things, but they believed them. The zombies were looking for that Lone Voice In The Wilderness to actually speak The Truth as they knew it. First came Limbaugh, then O'Reilly. But Beck has combined showmanship and his ability to embarass himself to parlay it all into being the Great Leader of the RightieZombies.

The LeftieZombies, many of whom still think it's 1963, decided to stage a boycott and gave anyone whose ads wound up on Becks TV show an ultimatum: stop "supporting" beck or feel our wrath. Apparently the advertisers got the message, 60 have fled Beck's FOX show, though since the numbers came from Media Matters, you would think that count would be a bit high.

But two things the LeftieZombies forgot. (A) RightieZombies tend to rally around their martyrs. So as the number of advertisers leaving the show went up, so did the number of RightieZombies viewing: 2.5 million. And with that, those hawkers who left will quietly, sheepishly, return.

Then there's (B): The LZ's forgot one other thing: Beck's RADIO show. He reminds his zombies....and advertisers....that he has The Third Most Listened-To Program In America daily. So maybe that is why Wal-Mart publically opted out of Glenn's TV show....but Wal-Mart spots on Beck's RADIO show were heard last week.

My fear is that Zombies, once fed enough red meat, tend to stop following their leaders and go off on their own, even more voracious as before. And what Beck has started, he may not be able to stop. Because all it would take is one person...or a small group of people...who feel the only way to save America is to rid it of the one thing that is destroying it. Many of us know what THEY think is that one thing, but in truth, that one thing is.....US. Our phobias that we have allowed to eat away at our brains until we oppose anything that will advance the country physically, financially, sexually, morally. It is the mob...the people of America, by and large, which are its own worse enemies, destroying her from the inside.

Then there is one other thing...maybe related, maybe not. But note something that is said at the 8:24-8:37 spot of the youtube clip posted.

Yup, Glenn and Keith work in THE SAME BUILDING! As a matter of fact, I would assume a few NBC lawyers had a very nice talk with Glenn about saying he was broadcasting from Radio City, seeing that its an NBC trademark.

And Keith's battles with a certain King of the Falafels has definitely raised both their profiles, ratings, and amounts in their respective bank accounts. So it would not be out of question for Beck to think that he could benefit from such a situation.

And it would not be out of the question to imagine that on some Wednesday night in Rockefeller Center's Rainbow Room, two nattily dressed, sandy-haired gents....one chubby, the other taller and bespectacled, sitting in a corner, sipping on their respective Manhattans. And laughing hysterically about the individual groups of goobers they broadcast to on a nightly basis.


Keep away from the noose, Don................Keep away from the noose......
