1. Tuckerville. Remember when the Discovery channel was like a more-accessible National Geographic/History Channel? Well, no more. They're now the "Fox News" among other edu-tainment themed stations. This show was on last night and, because I have no life, I watched an entire episode. I felt dirty afterward. Like I needed a long shower and/or HazMat hose down. As far as I can tell, it's just a sad, sad show, filled with way too many bedazzled outfits and fanny packs. And if you ever wanted another reason to quit smoking, just watch it so you can see Tanya's "Executive Assistant," Annie.
2. As I was channel surfing last night, I kept checking in on Astros to see how they were doing in their first ever World Series game. I don't care about baseball, or the Astros, but I felt it was my duty as a Texan. Anyway, one of the times I flipped over to the game, I was apalled to see Liz "Fuck and Run" Phair singing "God Bless America" to the Windy City crowd. WHAT? My 90s beacon of all things cool is singing a shmalzty patriotic number in the middle of Cominsky Park...oh, excuse me, "U.S. Cellular Park"? I don't know whether to laugh or throw up.
