Catching up post

Hey, peoples! I hope you all missed me as much as I missed you. It's been tough trying to blog these past few months, but I refuse to throw in the towel. There's always Twitter, but I like to rant not tweet.

Anyhoo, before I go any further I want to acknowledge the passing of a pretty cool guy who seemed to care about Barbados proceeding on the right track, one Sir John Stnaley Goddard. I only met him once but he seemed like the genuine article. RIP, Sir John.

I said a few weeks ago that I had a cussing for CBC for not buying the rights so we could watch Ryan Brathwaite run LIVE in Berlin, but I've changed my mind. I'm now convinced that something's seriously wrong up in the Pine in the programming department, and as I don't like to kick a dog when it's down, I spare them my ranting for now. Even if they bought the rights to show that boring, obsolete exposition called Miss Universe.

But seriously, as a viewer of 'single choice tv', i.e. I only have Channel 8, I'm suffering a slow death. Why?

Almost two thirds of CBC'S programming these days is repeats. I tuned into Sesame Street recently to let my son watch it and I saw an episode that had shown at least three times before. Now that's sad. Right now, CBC is repeating the entire last season of 'Ugly Betty' and 'Desperate Housewives'. They're okay shows, but come on! Can't they afford the new seasons?

Programmes are switched around without any prior warning or notice, which makes it hard to follow any serial programme.

Stupse. Right now I'm raiding my relatives' stocks of dvds, 'cause I swear the only thing fresh on tv at the moment is the Evening News....

So Chris Brown still loves Rihanna? Poor fellow. I don't doubt that he still has feelings for her, and probably real cruel with himself for losing his temper. Either that or he really trying to save his career. Going on Larry King in that blue bow tie took guts too...

Anyhoo, while he's spilling his guts, Rih-Rih's letting it all hang out for Vogue Italia.

What is there to say....

Is this our caterpillar coming out
Transforming to make us want to shout
And still not yet clothed in her new form
Looking like the calm before the storm
Impossible to predict so I don’t contemplate
All the stages celebrities go through that make them so great

Quite a lot, I'd say. But then I'm a heterosexual man. :)

I have generally unfond memories of CBC from the past, and apparently they haven't changed. (And, um, hello? Have they not heard of maintaining their website?)
