Okay, there's my reaction to the Golden Globes, almost.  WRITERS AND PRODUCERS END THIS FREAKIN STRIKE.  I'm so sick of re-runs and reality television and idiotic game shows.

The list was lifted off the L.A. Times website, they don't endorse my views, etc.

later, Mr. R.

  • Alltel Arena?

    So now that Verizon has become the Godzilla of American Cellphonery, what's going to happen to Alltel Arena?  Will Verizon keep the sponsorship tie-in, will someone else step up and buy it or will it retain the Alltel name (which I'm sure it can't after the deal is up as the name is now property of Verizon, right?)
