Here's some updates on some topics brought up in previous blogs:
Glee continues to rule, with some growing interest in the Lima community. Name dropping local landmarks is stirring interest in those who might not otherwise watch. The big "wrong reference" in the latest episode is the upcoming article in the newspaper. The name of the real Lima newspaper is The Lima News. (Catchy, ain't it?) I also noted they were eating at a restaurant named "Breadsticks" and there's no place by that name here, but then I don't think there's a "Breadsticks" in any town. Strangely enough, at the time this aired, a bunch of guys in the Lima Fox affiliate were eating bread sticks, from Olive Garden.
I hear some Gleeks are down on Kristen Chenoweth and want her to go away. Ouch, guys.
The honeymoon is long over. If you still harbor any thoughts of a "liberal mainstream media" check out the latest word from the White House press. Reporters say President Obama and the media have a surprisingly hostile relationship. They say the White House is thin-skinned, controlling, eager to go over their heads and stingy with even basic information. Hmmm. Sounds a lot like the Bush Administration, as well as the Clinton damage control team, but the same sentence could be used to describe the Nixon White House. So, can we expect Obama to start referring to the media as those nattering nabobs of negativism?
American Idol finally acknowledged the 1990's this week with a Shania Twain night - which pretty much explains why we forgot the '90's.
