March Maddening (and Other Random Thoughts)
Oh sure, he loves his rock music loud. (Wouldn't have it any other way.)
And, a Michael Bay movie had better shake the floor.
His morning commute requires the sound of Stephanie Miller and The Mooks and his drive time home is not complete without Randi Rhodes.
But, mostly, he likes quiet.
Mrs. Blog tends toward the opposite.
As in, the constant drone of the television, even if nothing is on.
Like late night infomercials and sports.
Oh, the sports.
Of all the noises The Blog hates the most, (besides the low frequency rumble of a truck idling outside a building or the high frequency "beep, beep, beep" of the same truck backing up,) it is the white noise caused by sports broadcasts.
And so, for the past few weeks, once we have run out of reruns of "Castle" on the Tivo™, the drone of sportscaster's babble, roaring crowds and the pounding of rubber against hardwood drill into The Blog's brain like a swarm of killer bees.
March is two days away from being over.
Please assure me that the madness is about to end!
But, The PC has long been an admirer of Starbucks founder and CEO Howard Schultz.
(And he does love their "Artisan Breakfast Sandwiches." Like "Egg McMuffins sprinkled with awesomeness!)
Schultz is that rare rich guy who has never forgotten his less than modest upbringing. He pays his employees a better than average wage, provides health insurance for virtually all of his workers and he supports progressive causes.
So check out this video from a recent shareholder meeting, where he, as Upworthy.com, puts it, "Serves a Grande Cup of 'Shut the Hell Up'" to some of his anti-gay marriage shareholders.
There has been a whole lot of noise, over the past few days, about something some are calling the "Monsanto Protection Act," supposedly signed by Pres. Obama last week.
It's all nonsense and The PC would politely ask his fellow Liberals and Progressives to get a grip and just chill.
Here are the facts...
A couple of months ago, The Blog shared an hilarious video called "Gay Women Will Marry Your Boyfriends."
Because I am not about to search my entire archive to find that post, I just went to YouTube and found a link to it. You can watch it here, if you missed it the first time.
It is beneath The Blog to make any mention of the fact that this video is now sponsored by "Friskies" Cat Food and a campaign called "Will Kitty Play With it?"
In the interest of equal time, The PC will now share a video called "Gay Men Will Marry Your Girlfriends."
No post tomorrow night.
So, Happy Ishtar!
