A few random ramblings…

A few comments on current events…

…One news report says that rocker Ozzy Osbourne is angry with Watercloset “Baptist Church”* (a.k.a., Westboro Baptist Church) for using one of his songs at a church function without his permission.

That’s perhaps fitting, since, outside a seminar preaching about the evils of rock music, I don’t think there is a single Baptist church that would be caught dead playing Osbourne’s music–whether it’s him as a solo artist or him as the lead singer of Black Sabbath.

With all the anti-gay controversy regarding the church, I am beginning to suspect that Watercloset cult leader Fred Phelps is a closet homosexual. His anti-gay stands make me wonder if he’s overcompensating for latent desires he has.

In other words, ladies and gentlemen, I suspect that Phelps deep down knows he’s gay and is doing these things to rebel against himself.

Just my opinion.

* Yes, I know the Topeka, Kan. church is actually called Westboro Baptist Church, but in future blog postings I will likely refer to it as Watercloset “Baptist Church” since, in my humble opinion, it is neither Baptist nor a church…

Speaking as a Dallas Cowboys fan, I wonder if there is a more overrated team in football than Dallas. Before the season, the talk was that Dallas would become the very first team to host a Super Bowl since this season’s Super Bowl XLV, will be played on my 38th birthday, February 6, 2011, at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Now, one journalism colleague tells me he thinks Dallas will finish the season at 6-10 or 7-9.

In their recent game against the Tennessee Titans, Tony Romo put up wonderful numbers but also threw three interceptions. And, of course, when you play no defense, it really should be no surprise that you are 1-3.

Cowboys head coach Wade Phillips probably has his realtor on speed dial. My guess is by this season’s end, unless Dallas miraculously rebounds and makes it to the NFC championship game, Phillips will be depositing his buyout check at his bank…

…I would not be surprised if a Democrat is governor of California come November. Conan the Republican, a.k.a., Arnold Schwarzenegger, came to office in 2003 with high hopes of controlling the Golden State’s spending and red ink. Never happened. My guess is Ah-nold tried cooperating too much with politicians who never met a dollar they didn’t want to spend…

…Nope, never watched Jersey Shores. Absolutely, 100% could not care less. I know who Snoopy is, but couldn’t care less who Snooki is…

…Finished watching Nip/Tuck on Netflix instant view last month. Amazing how quickly you can zoom through episodes when you skip over the racy content. One friend joked I must’ve zoomed through some episodes in five seconds. Still, great acting on Nip/Tuck by Dylan Walsh, Julian McMahon, Joely Richardson, Kelly Carlson and Jessalyn Gilsig. Every single episode seemed to have the emotional impact of a season finale of Lost.

Funniest scene? When drug lord Escobar Gallardo’s wife shoots him (“Business was better without him, and he made love like an adolescent boy,” she curtly explained) and Doctors McNamara and Troy have dump his body in the Florida Everglades, followed closely by Gallardo trying to leave the country with a new face and new identity, only to learn from police his new face is identical to another wanted drug lord…
