Survivor 30 Begins Tonight! Blue collar vs. white collar vs. no collar should be an interesting experiment in how folks from different social and economic backgrounds compete with and against each other. 

The granddaddy of reality competition shows does a great job in keeping things fresh and interesting. Jeff Probst is one of the toughest questioners and best hosts on TV. It all starts tonight at 8:00 PM on CBS TV.

Rambling About Commercials

Standard

Some commercials do a great job of getting in your head and never leaving. There are visuals that make you ask what did I just see. The way you do ads these days is a clever hook, interesting gimmicks and famous people. Yes sex does help here but that is for another discussion. I guess the advertising agencies earn their money that way in the 21st century.

On Wednesday Williams, NBC News’ top anchor, confessed he “bungled” a story he had told on air about being in a helicopter that was shot down by an RPG in 2003. His admission came after multiple soldiers questioned the tale, which he has told on multiple occasions, and revealed he was actually not in the aircraft.

Quote

When I wake up in the morning
And the alarm gives out a warning
I don’t think I’ll ever make it on time
By the time I grab my books,
And I give myself a look,
I’m at the corner just in time to see the bus fly by
It’s alright “cause I’m saved by the bell

Peter Pan Live, I Am All About That

Standard

We are watching live television, something that was a mainstay of broadcasting years ago. People would gather together to discuss what they saw on the tube the nighe before. It is a shared experience that hopefully brings people together.

Peter Pan Live and last years The Sound of Music Live are things that made TV great. These are classic tales acted Broadway style to all of America. This is a homage to the stage production and its not going to be “Disneyfied”. The production and story is meant to I hope crack through the harden shells of our souls. We need innocence and yes cheese. Feeling something warm and fuzzy is something we need so much of these days. Even in our hard times this is a great way to escape into fairy tales that will remind us of when times were easier.
