Despite the fact that the ongoing extreme weather has created a lot of chaos, my rainy Sunday was blissfully uneventful. It was like a snow day without all the cleanup. Joe and I watched a lot of TV, played a lot of video games and did a lot of couch-sitting. Top five moments are below.
5 - Nancy Giles' call for a more diverse broadcast news media, in light of Imusgate. [CBS Sunday morning]
4 - Joe's Tiger Woods golf game victory dances. He and his avatar did exactly the same thing on some holes.
3 - SNL's digital short. Shia LeBoeuf did a really good job on the episode in general, but the use of Imogen Heap's "Hide and Seek" (first heard on TV on The O.C. at Caleb's funeral) was fantastic. Honorable mentions go to the Dakota Fanning show and "An intimate moment with Jessica Simpson and John Mayer."
2 - Super Paper Mario's old school gaming/new school controls approach. I played for three hours and could have gone on much longer without feeling like I was suffering from brain rot or general Nintendo-induced crankiness.
1 - Sydney Pollack as Johnny Sack's medically-trained prison confidante on The Sopranos. In one episode, he created a fantastic character.
