One of my old Peaches Music buddies, Eugene, tells me the cable company in Greensboro is having some sort of di$pute with the local NBC affiliate station, and is (inexplicably) showing news broadcasts from Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in its place.
Weird, huh? I’m sure the folks of Greensboro, Winston-Salem, and High Point are excited to learn about the latest RAV4 rollover on Route 11 in Chinchilla, PA, and the Blood Cheese Festival in Upper Good Christ! Township, or whatever.
To help get my North Carolina friends through these challenging days, I’d like to propose a drinking game to be played while watching WBRE news. Each player should take a shot of booze whenever one of the following items are mentioned or featured:
- suspicious house fire
- Turkey Hill convenience store robbery
- citizens “concerned” about a new business opening
- man in enormous 2007 family reunion t-shirt OUTRAGED because his sewer fee is going up $2 per year, and who repeatedly uses the phrase “it’s always the little guy”
I saw this on Good Morning America a few days ago, and couldn’t believe it. I’d like to know your thoughts. It profiles a 12 year old(!) girl who is having her (weeks old?) pubes professionally obliterated for summer. The whole thing boggles my mind — the obliteration itself, the pre-teenness of it all, the willingness to talk about it with strangers, the camera crew… What do you think about this? Does it give you a case of the multi-level heebie-jeebies, like it does me?
Is this perfect, or what? I love it! Great work.
And I didn’t take this picture myself, but wish I had. In fact, at the age of 49, I would’ve snapped photos from several angles, and shouted, “This is great! It’s beautiful!!” And the glow of happiness would’ve remained with me for hours.
I’ll see you guys again tomorrow. Have great day!
