Things That Make Me Sad, Happy, Confused, Scared and Tired

1. Bad News For Arrested Development - According to this article , Fox isn't going to be airing the final 9 episodes of this season's Arrested Development due to poor ratings. While this doesn't necessarily mean they are going to cancel the show, it's certainly not a good sign. *sigh* This is depressing. One of the greatest shows on TV today and no one is watching it......Hopefully this show won't fall to the same fate as Family Guy where it gets cancelled by fox, becomes a cult classic only to return to Fox with all of the original edgy-humor traded in for forced jokes and rehashing old-gags leaving only a slight trace of what made the show work the first time around.

(UPDATED - great clip from Transbuddha of David Cross explaining the demise of the show - warning the clip drops the f-bomb a few times)

2. Sony finally gives in. After a swarm of bad press, Sony has finally decided to recall their CDs that contain the trojan software. Maybe this will be a lesson to them that they shouldn't punish their PAYING customers with harmful attempts at copy protection. Score one for the little guy...

(ANOTHER UPDATE - according to Washington Post the Department of Homeland Security may have had something to do with Sony's decision - the money quote said to record label execs? "there's been a lot of publicity recently about tactics used in pursuing protection for music and DVD CDs ... It's very important to remember that it's your intellectual property -- it's not your computer. And in the pursuit of protection of intellectual property, it's important not to defeat or undermine the security measures that people need to adopt in these days."

3. Why do I still have an active match.com profile? Why does Match keep sending me emails matching me with um ME??? Why am I listed as only a 78% match for myself?

4. It Finally Happened The Bird Flu has made it's way onto three humans. Bush to impending epidemic - "Bring it on!"

5. Is it only Wednesday?

I totally agree, one of the best showas ever - I have also mourned it on my blog as well. I will miss it and its twisted humor greatly.

HAHA how are you matched with yourself? Wow.

78%...that's a bit frightening. Then again, it shows your humble that you can't like yourself too much, right? :)

78%? Well that makes sense; you just like different aspects in other people than yourself. That's a good thing, otherwise you could just clone yourself and move in with your duplicate half.

Death to Sony!
