You’ll still have BagOfNothing.com to start your morning, at least for the next two years. Yesterday I finally made the effort to call GoDaddy to renew hosting and domain names. Even though I only renewed hosting for two years I decided to renew BagOfNothing.com for five, and Geeding.com (which redirects here) for another ten. Thanks to those of you that wanted to contribute financially to keep this thing going. It’s tempting to accept such a gesture, but I’d feel weird doing so. I’ll stop doing this thing if my life gets too hectic or if I find there’s a lack of readers either thought comments or daily page visits.
To give you a rough idea of what I pay to run this thing, it’s close to ten bucks a year just to keep the domain and a little under a hundred for hosting. I’m sure I could get a better deal if I shopped around, but I don’t want to deal with the trouble or stress of moving things over.
I appreciate all the comments about pocket knives. Heck, y’all knowledge about them is pretty impressive. I could easily carry my father’s, and it will one day be given to my son, but I think I just enjoy less clutter in my pocket and that’s why I’ll start with the key knife I bought and will go from there.
I get the impression from Donald Trump that he’s not too involved in debate prep.
I wonder what will get higher ratings tonight, Fox News that will carry the debate for the Republican candidates, or Jon Stewart’s final ‘The Daily Show’. I’m going with the debate as it hits more demographics.
I think it’s odd that many Fox News personalities attack Stewart. The man is a comedian first and first most, of a fake news program of all things. If he was a member of the actual media, a politician, or a pundit, I could understand why they give him so much attention. But then again, maybe he’s an easy target for a demographic that can’t stand the man and that pulls in ratings. Somewhat similar to the Yankees and Cowboys – no matter what, love them or hate them, you want to watch them, to cheer them on or see their demise. No matter what, they get ratings.
Arby’s has been a punching bag of Stewart’s for a long time, so I got a kick out of last night’s show’s open which was actually sponsored by the fast food joint and they also had the first commercial spot which had a special goodbye to him.
Louie CK was Stewart’s guest last night, and I never saw CK so well groomed.
I finally watched the season finale of ‘Halt and Catch Fire’. There are lots of rumors that due to its low ratings, AMC will cancel the series, but it’s loved by critics. I like it because it’s based in the early 80’s and it’s in Dallas and it’s fun to pick up on local stuff. For instance, Belt Line was mentioned.
The Atlantic – The AMC drama found its legs in season two, and it could prove a worthy successor to Breaking Bad and Mad Men if it scores a third season.

Thanks to one loyal reader, I’m enjoying another AMC show, ‘Humans’. It’s great sci-fi with solid drama about the moment of singularity with robots that resemble lifelike humans. Thankfully it has just been renewed for a second season.
Robert Downey Jr. is the world’s highest paid actor … again – Some of us are old enough to remember that no studio wanted to take a chance on him because of his behavior and drug use. It looked like his last role was going to be on ‘Ally McBeal’ and he even had to be written out of the script because of drug abuse, again. Of all people, it was Mel Gibson that helped revive his career. He’s fortunate he’s gotten many second chances and guidance, many are never able to kill those demons. His first wife, Deborah Falconer, has a prosthetic eye. I only know this because she was featured in a video in which you can’t tell which eye is fake, and we were told to watch the video as WifeGeeding was about to have the procedure.
