Curmudgeon in the Wry 563

Saturday, June 28, 2014---848 Words---Average Reading Time: 2 Minutes, 56 Seconds. (A pointless waste of time---time frittered away)
Offending readers and hindering productivity one issue at a time since 2001.
Continuing to call them as I see them.
Virtually free of original ideas. 
Warning: Contains unsound bites from the apple of life.
Often wrong…never in doubt.
If you want this in a different language…move to a country that speaks it!
Gluten Free.
Completely biased.
Don’t forget to floss.
Low carb.
+++++++
Rave: “World War II in Color.”
+++++++
Reading: “Chosen Prey” by John Sandford.
+++++++
On the Hi Fi: The Bud Powell trio---“Time Was.”
+++++++
Under rated: Robert Culp.
+++++++
Rave: I am convinced “Band of Brothers” only gets better with additional viewings.
+++++++
TV Time Out: Jeff Malone on “Suits” is just as annoying and creepy as was Darryl Crowe on this past season of “Justified.” He cannot be written out fast enough to please me. He’s making this season difficult to enjoy.
+++++++
Quote: “Freedom means nothing if it does not mean the freedom to do what other people don’t like.”---Renowned Economist Thomas Sowell.
++++++++
Must See TV: Wimbledon…Chris Evert, the McEnroe Brothers, Mary Jo Fernandez and Pam Shriver are outstanding announcers.
+++++++
Hmmm: If you'd been told in 1995 that you would have a device in your pocket that gave you access to all the world's information and would let you communicate with anyone you knew at a moment's notice…you would have been dumbfounded. And now you complain because it doesn't do those things fast enough!
+++++++
Liberalism: Ideas so good, they have to be mandatory.
+++++++
Hmmm: Remember when there were summer songs on the radio?
+++++++
TV Time Out II: “Rizzoli and Isles” did a spectacular and tasteful job of handling the death of Lee Thompson Young and his character Barry Frost. Angie Harmon gave an Emmy-worthy performance.
+++++++
Full Disclosure: I still read the Archie comic strip daily…and enjoy it!
+++++++
Dictum: “Dead Broke” to a libtard like Hillary means having to spend your own money.
+++++++
Prediction: “Hard Choices” will lead the league in copies in the remainder bins at bookstores and book departments everywhere.
+++++++
True or False: Most movies would be improved by having 30% fewer explosions.
+++++++
Department of redundancy department: Live-In Person; same exact; future plans; final conclusion; past history; two-way dialog; front windshield, jazz music.
+++++++
Bumper sticker of the week: “It’s not that I’m old, your music really does suck.”
+++++++
Truism: If empty seats were people, the Rays would be sold out.
+++++++
TV Time Out III: I am not certain if this is the best season of “Longmire”…but I’m convinced it’s the most intense. It’s really a positive when you can’t wait to see what happens next.
+++++++
Do I have this correct: It’s okay to criticize, belittle and taunt Tim Tebow for his beliefs…but not Michael Sam for his.
+++++++
Quote: "Sex appeal is fifty percent what you've got and fifty percent what people think you've got."—Sophia Loren.
+++++++
Truism: Nobody wants to hear your music…same goes for your cell phone conversation.
+++++++
Didjaknow: Rupert Holmes (who wrote “The Pina Colada Song”) was the first person to win individual Tony awards for Best Book, Best Music and Best Lyrics…for “The Mystery of Edwin Drood.”
+++++++
Ooops: You send out fifty invitations for a party you have scheduled for June 31st.
+++++++
TV Time Out IV: “Major Crimes” just gets better and better. It is a most worthy spinoff of “The Closer.”
+++++++
Free advice: State-of-the-art is not always best. Let someone else be the beta-test.
+++++++
Listen Up: Read the directions, even if you don’t follow them.
+++++++
Never fall for: “One size fits all,” “Fun for all ages,” and “Removes unwanted hair.”
+++++++
Truism: You know it’s bad when you cannot even watch the previews, never mind the movies.
+++++++
If I ran the circus: When a batter enters the batter’s box, there would be no stepping out.
+++++++
Hmmm: Do TV repairmen still exist?
++++++++
TV Time Out V: There are already far more questions than answers as “Covert Affairs” starts the new season. Annie Walker is just about my favorite TV character…right behind Raylan Givens.
+++++++
Remember the old days: All this crap going on in the White House kinda makes Nixon look like a virgin, doesn’t it?
+++++++
Ever wonder: If woodpeckers get headaches?
+++++++
Rave On: Never underestimate how talented Buddy Holly really was.
+++++++
Hmmm: Does anyone still use shoetrees? And, why are they called that?
+++++++
Trust me: There is nothing static about static electricity.
+++++++
Final TV Time Out: I’ll admit it…I’m a sucker for “Royal Pains.” It’s simply easy-breezy.
+++++++
Rant: It is not your imagination---restaurants are getting noisier and noisier.
+++++++
Translation: Anyone who says, “I am just playing the Devil’s Advocate,” is actually saying, “I really believe this, but I do not have the guts to say so.”
+++++++
Final Thought: You know you’re in trouble when the drums stop.
+++++++
If you can read this, thank a teacher.
If you can’t, thank the teacher’s union.
If you are reading it in English, thank a Veteran.
And, for everything else you have, thank God.
That is all.

As you were
