Breaking news! Eating helps hunger!

Is the population so dumbed down that this is a story? People that eat breakfast may actually feel less hungry as the day goes on? Unbelievable. High-protein breakfasts may help fend off hunger cravings, obesity: study www.nationalpost.com…

Colm Wilkinson and Les Miserables

If you’ve been to see the new movie Les Miserables, you’ll likely be doing some digging to see past performances of some of the songs.

Let me save you some looking: here is the most stunning performance of Bring Him Home you will find anywhere on the internet.

Watch it and be blown away. Hugh Jackman did a great job, but he’s an actor. Watch professionals and be amazed.

Bye Bell part 5

Once more, it’s time to say good-bye to Bell Canada. Fun while it lasted (1 year). I enjoyed the discounted internet service, but was annoyed at:

  • the 250gig limit
  • the foreign workers answering your phone calls (very polite, but why can’t Canadians take the calls)

I almost reverted to Rogers.com…, but caught myself and reconnected with TekSavvy – Cable 28. They are now able to take Roger’s line and make it their own.

Although reluctant to give up a real landline, it only rings with telemarketers. I decided to try magicjack, and so far it’s been 98% as good. Total cost was $55 for the jack, and $10 for a new unlisted number.

Updates as the service is evaluated.

Fox is first

I like Fox News – and I am sorry it isn’t part of the basic cable package.  Apparently Lawrence Solomon likes it too.

I commend these all to you, but I especially commend the gold standard in television news and commentary, the one TV channel indispensable to obtaining an understanding of the events of the day: FOX News.

Seeya Air Farce

I always liked the radio version of the Air Farce, especially with Dave Broadfoot.  His Sgt. Renfrew was killer.   Apparently Friday is the last show for the TV program – I guess the radio show is long gone.  Roger Abbott laments.

Listening methods are changing daily…Last.fm may be one of the best ones out there.  So far I like it…and there’s even an iphone app for it.

Morning after with Sarah

SNL: Tina Fey as Sarah Palin

Image by stevegarfield via Flickr

Last nights’ SNL with Sarah Palin was impossible to find quickly on Youtube, but we did find it easily via Google on NBC.com….  That said, Sarah looked gorgeous as always, the interaction with Alec was cool, and Tina Fey‘s impression was of course great.

I hung in for the rest of the show, which was a mistake.  I missed an audience shot of Sarah, apparently, and although I was not tired, I passed out somewhere in the middle.  SNL is worse than it used to be, if that’s possible.  They have a monster cast to draw upon too, which is even sadder.

Blatchford is back

It looks like I’ll be able to read Christie Blatchford again.  The Globe‘s internet gate has once more been let down.  I’m sure next to no-one paid for the content.

RIP Richard Wright

Mr. Wright was the sole songwriter on “The Great Gig in the Sky,” a hymnlike track with a soaring, wordless female vocal at the center of “The Dark Side of the Moon,” the blockbuster 1973 Pink Floyd album that has sold some 40 million copies.
