Most things, if you ask why I enjoy them, I could tell you why I've come to enjoy them. You guys have to sit through very long posts on Trek, etc... where I discuss that sort of thing.
But some things you like, and you've never bothered to analyze why. Here are some of those things...
Bonnie Tyler's "Total Eclipse of the Heart".
Yeah, a 20 secnd bit from "The Mighty Boosh" inspired this whole post.
We watched "Burn After Reading" the other night, and I found myself quite pleased Swinton was in it. I haven't seen that many movies with Swinton, but I like her.
Spaghetti (with meatballs)
Its just meat, noodles and tomato sauce with some oregano. Its still one of my favorite foods.
Seriously. Its just dudes scaring themselves in the dark.
Fourth of July Concerts
Local, certainly. But I also watch whatever they have on PBS when I get home on the night of the 4th.
Ozzy's "Mama I'm Coming Home"
News 8 Austin
Austin has a local 24-hour news channel. If you think CNN has a time finding material for its 24-hour cycle, then you can imagine the challenge of finding enough to cover in Austin. So we get "Pet of the Week" and a lot of coverage of events in the community such The Great Texas Dog Walk, marathons, holiday events, etc... Its on a shoe-string budget, but... seriously. I feel very well informed about my hometown, but why do I feel compelled to watch it virtually every time I turn on the TV?
It's pork by-product pressed into the shape of ribs, smothered in a lo-fi bar-b-q sauce, and topped with onion and pickles. And I love it. God help me, but I love the McRib. It's one of the few times each year that I'll drink a large Dr. Pepper. r, really, these days, actually go to McDonald's.
But I dig it.
Yes, he routinely gets nominated for awards and stuff, but that's not something that usually sways me. I think its the crazy range of stuff the guys is willing to take on, and always acquits himself quite well.
So that's the random list of stuff. I expect I'll do this again.
Feel free to add your own.
