I admit it basketball is far from my favorite sport and by its ratings it appears to be far from many people’s favorite sport, so in lieu of this I’d like to see LeBron James, who wants to be a universally beloved billionare, sign with Spain or maybe Greece. He wants to be an intertional star so he should go intertional. Maybe he could bring basketball to such a peek of popularity in Europe that it rivals FIFA World Cup. It is just a thought.

So Wonder Woman has a new costume. I don’t mind her red, white, blue color scheme representing USA has been lessened but I do regret her well endowments and short shorts being replaced. Wonder Woman as a superhero is okay, but as a wet dream for a young boy she is without peer.
It is July 4th… ring the bells, raise the flags, burn the hot dogs, grill the burgers, and barbecue the ribs. Happy Birthday America!

I have gone most of March without a single hit on this blog, so I thought it was time to define this blog.
Cultural Fewmets – Cultural implies that which binds, such as media, sports, literature, goverment, or the flag which represents our country. Fewmets is the animal droppings which hunters use to track their prey. The crap which binds us or how that which binds us has become crap. Simple.

Has the syphilis of fame finally gone to Tom Hanks’ head? The answer is — yes.
Elton John commented that someone he dated committed suicide because they were Christian and it made them feel guilty. Is he sure that he wasn’t the reason? I think his favorite pronoun is I.
How big of an A##whole must James Cameron be to have a movie make that much and not get an Oscar?

Ever get the feeling that freedom is an illusion?
When was the last time David Letterman was funny?
Why can’t NBC cancel Saturday Night Live?
When was the last time Saturday Night Live funny?
What’s more frightening a tornado or a hurricane?

Yes, I like football. I don’t know why, but I like football. Do I like the combone, free agency, and the draft? They are football related activities, but in many ways they are the reality show version of football. Get to know the young would be baller, feel his pain in the 40, watch him sweet the draft. Will your favorite would be pro get drafted by your favorite team, or by a dreaded enemy? Will he make the team? Will he make the team with getting picked up for drunk driving? Who will be the next Pacman Jones? Ahhh, football preseason, post season, et al. It makes you pine for training camp and games.

Elton John claims that there is too much hate in the world and, I gather, hopes to lessen this hate by also announcing that Jesus was gay.
Okay, now it’s my turn to help lessen hate: Elton John is an a**hole.

Is Kevin Smith fat or are Southwest planes narrow?
According to Prsident Obama fat people are a drain on the economy because they strain the healthcare system, so I ask again: Is Kevin Smith fat? If he is, is he a strain on the healthcare system or can he afford to be a drain? Are only poor fat people a drain?
The Olympics – are they still relevant? How come some figure skaters can fall and still get high scores while others do error free routines and get low scores? Are judges biased?
Do the Olympics remind anyone else of the UN? Nice idea whose time is over because it just doesn’t work. I mean we have Arab countries that imprision homosexuals for a little slap and tickle in the UN who end up chairing committees about human rights.
Is it me but most global warming – oh, sorry climate change – arguments seem silly when I am freezing my ass off in Tennessee?
In the Middle Ages we had a mini- ice age, so I ask – where were the Hummers and SUVs in the Middle Ages?
Should Climate Change be considered a religion, since just like God, you have to take it on Faith? Oh, bu the scientists say blah, blah, blah, and they keep contradicting themsleves and getting caught with bad data and so on and so worth. Just admit it: Green is now a religion and it is on the verge of its own Inquisition.

Is it me or was the opening a pantheist wetdream? Can anyone explain the Gandalf staff moment to me? What I know now about Canada is this- who cares about the people, it’s nature that counts.
Also, was the chubby white guy rapping or being a poet? Genteel? Yeah, Canadians are genteel. Genteel to extinction. Last night’s opening made me miss China’s Disney-like homage to the state over individualism. Though any event that has Bryan Adams and Nelly Furtado lipsynching can’t be all bad. There is the humor value.

Before the Superbowl the narrative being written by sports writers and anchors was that Peyton Manning was the greatest quarterback ever. Before the Superbowl New Orleans was a great story and America was rooting for them. Four quarters later and Peyton Manning is highly flawed as he is 500 in the playoffs at 9wins and 9 loses and no one is calling him the greatest ever. Next up was New Orleans. Suddenly, this was the forgotten city, ignored by us and treated shabby. (Of course the hundreds of millions of dollars pumped in New Orleans and LA in general is shabby treatment.) New Orleans is finding redemption from Katrina by winning the Superbowl. And Lord Brees walks on water. My head hurts.
Redemption should only come from a sporting event if you are a player who has f*cked up and you score the winning goal, touchdown, et al. New Orleans is not a forgotten city, but it is a fantastic and flawed city with more problems than a storm the size of katrina could wash away. As for Peyton Manning – he’s a great quarterback, though I’d take Joe Montanna or Tom Brady in the playoffs over him.
