Short Attention Span Theatre

I’m sure there are those among us that will be dismayed, because Santa didn’t bring what they wanted.

Stuck waiting for punch lines, because there should have been more, but, there wasn’t.

Personal electronic devices allowed us the “have it our way.” That was until advertisers and spammers worked their way around firewalls and roadblocks.

Internet “click bait,” has the same content as supermarket tabloids. You Tube videos are chock-full of pop-up ads. Included political ads recently–to my dismay.

Has anyone tabulated the percentage of legitimate telephone calls received during an average day–compared to telemarketer and nuisance calls? What would it be: 5%? 10%? 1%?

Recently, a city hall clerk in a certain state, refused a marriage license, because the gentleman formerly resided in New Mexico. The clerk mistakenly thought New Mexico was a foreign country.

What Did They Want From Me?

Why did I need anybody
To tell me, what I needed to know?
I have a mind of my own
Back to the grindstone
Dignity left by the roadside
Always breakfast, dinner
Finger lickin’ chicken
Or something else
Even less interesting
Enough of this stuff
Some extra napkins
And ketchup packets, please
That’ll do just fine

Not Exactly New News

It’s not polite to speak ill of the departed. Natalie Wood’s death was controversial at that time.

The issue of whether or not it was accidental is not, new news.

Why it is being brought up now has me baffled.

On another subject, the three major television networks, failing to find any new programming ideas, are rebooting old series.

Rosanne, will come back on ABC. CBS brought back Hawaii 5-O, MacGyver; will bring back Cagney and Lacey, and Magnum PI.

Will they be successful?  Hawaii 5-O and MacGyver seem to be doing well.  I miss the scowling characterization portrayed by Jack Lord in the original series.

What other expended TV series could be reincarnated?  …Leave It To Beaver, Bewitched, Barnaby Jones, Moonlighting?

I happened to like Moonlighting–the theme song was great, the tension between Bruce Willis and Cybil Shepard made the show.  I didn’t care for the way Seinfeld ended, either.

 

What a Difference a Day Made

Clicked on click bait
Searched for–
Something earthshaking
Something brilliant
Something profound
Found suggestions already knew
Wasted time watching people
with whom I had nothing in common
that didn’t care a whit about
anything, but themselves
Life is a continual series
Of turns–sometimes
In wrong directions
