Well, my tooth is finally in my mouth and life can get back to normal now.
Was going to run a Battle of the Bands yesterday, then listened to the choices I had for the song I wanted to do, and decided “nah…”. BotB will return September 15, I promise.
I don’t know if it was because I was tired or in a bad mood or both, but I sat down to write yesterday and I just didn’t feel like it. Yeah, I know what all the books tell you, that those are the times you really ought to write, but there are just days I start and say, “yeah… no.” That’s when I head over to YouTube and watch Jim Gaffigan.
Or maybe Sebastian Maniscalco.
Then I start banging around looking for crazy stuff. Maybe a few old commercials.
The first commercial was from The Lucy And Desi Comedy Hour, which was sponsored by Philip Morris cigarettes. Thing was, Lucy smoked Chesterfields, so that’s probably what she was smoking here. My Mom smoked Chesterfields and reminded me a lot of Lucille Ball.
Maybe an old Emergency Broadcast System Test or two.
They used to scare the bejesus out of me. Now they’re funny.
And, just for good measure, a signoff from the days when TV stations signed off every night.
Those were the days when “The Star Spangled Banner” meant, “hey, you still up? Go to bed!”
So, that’s what’s been entertaining me lately.
