Pretty Bad Parody, With One Saving Grace

Hillary Clinton had this parody done up as part of the announcement of what her official campaign song would be. Can you figure out what show and and scene they are parodying? Hint: The shifty stranger was in the original show. Overall it's actually a pretty crappy parody with Hillary and Bill acting really stiff, but for me, that guest appearance makes up a little for it.

Wonder Why Your Service Support Call Ends Up In India?

Cartoon spells it out beautifully. I'd like to think Canada as a population never buys into ANY religious zealotry.

The Soprano's Bow Out

Honestly I don't really get all the fuss about the last show. I thought it was great! It wasn't cliched which to me would have sucked. If he was redeemed and "saw the light", that would have been bull, which the show really wasn't about. If he'd been "whacked" it would have been to obvious. Like one of A.J.'s last lines, "remember the good times". The "shock" to black(no fade to black) was stark and obviously effective based on all the complaining on the net. Hell, Phil's getting run over was worth the price of admission alone!

Bravo David Chase, for giving us a show that really pulled no punches with it's characters. If it wasn't for The Soprano's, a show like House would never have existed. Now to back and watch all it over from the beginning. Thank goodness for DVD!!

Why Cell Phone Service Providers Are Like Political Parties

I've come to the conclusion that cell phone service providers are just like political parties; no matter who you go with, they will screw you in the end! Having dealt with Bell Mobility to today has led me to this conclusion.

A month ago I went into a Bell Mobility(screw them, I'm not linking) store to see when I could possibly upgrade my cell phone since mine is starting to crap out. Now I still have just over a year to go on my 36 month contract. I was told then that as of June 9 I could get $100 off the regular price of any phone. So I walk into the Bell Mobility store to get a newer phone and guess what, now it's only $50 and I'd have to wait until September! Pissed off, and at the insistence of the clerk who actually helpful, I called Bell Mobility directly and let it rip(being mindful and telling the person at the other end, this wasn't directed at them personally, but at the crappy customer relations, as a company they were providing. Hey, I worked a call centre job for a year, so I understand). Bell Mobility being the only cell carrier I have ever used and with for the last 11 years, I asked that something be done, otherwise I'm walking when my term is up, thanks now to number portability. After being on hold for 5 minutes, I was told that as a one time exception, I would get my $100 off the regular price of any phone...AS LONG AS I RENEWED FOR ANOTHER 3 YEARS!!!! So let me see. If I was a new customer, I would get a new phone at a deeply discounted rate for 3 years, but because I'm upgrading for another 3 years as a long time customer, I get $100 of the regular price? KISS MY ASS!!! Hopefully my phone will get by until next year, and then I walking to Rogers. Yeah, I've heard they're crap to, but at least they'll have the iPhone by then hopefully, which I may consider, and my wife and I could have a couple plan. I think it's time, just like in politics, I give someone else a chance to screw me.

This Is Quite Sad

Watch the video below. Even though there is laughing from a studio audience watching this, it's quite sad the lack of knowledge by some of these Americans(New Yorkers even to boot!!). I'm sure this was edited to effect, but the fact that they don't know or remember speaks to the fact George W Bush has been able to get away with what he has. If the general public is this ignorant, then they shouldn't complain about their government. Pathetic and sad.
