More mindless musings after flipping through the channels tonight:
1)The Bravo Channel had a special profile of Jon Bon Jovi. Isn't the Bravo Channel supposed to be all cultural and arty? I realize Jon is in the midst of a bit of a career comeback and that '80's hairbands are kind of in right now (but of course, in an ironic sort of way), but when did "You Give Love a Bad Name" become considered arty?
2)Speaking of which, I saw a video for the Scorpions doing a concert performance of "Rock You Like a Hurricane" with a full symphony orchestry. Nothing adds to the drama and intensity of lyrics like "The wolf is hungry\He runs to the show\He's licking his lips\He's ready to win\On the hunt tonight\For love at first sting" like a full orchestra. Poor musicians.
3)And I also saw that it's Pledge Week at KQED, the local PBS station. Don't we all love Pledge Week? Riddle me this, Batman- why, if they run shows that'll bring in a bigger audience for Pledge Week, don't they just run those shows regularly instead of the stuff that I guess nobody watches? And for some reason, KQED always shows a lot of self-help lectures. Like Tony Robbins kind of stuff except a bit more New Agey. What is KQED saying by running these shows, that their main audience needs help? And a lot of them are about investing, making more money and becoming successful. Who do they think watched KQED, a bunch of poor Latino's out in the Mission District? No, they're all a bunch of SUV driving Marin Yupsters who already make tons of money. Hate KQED.
