Bag of Randomness for Wednesday, March 8, 2017

  • Regarding that picture, I wonder if the majority of Texas evangelicals…
    • (A.) Offended by the commercialism of their Christian faith.
    • (B.) Offended Mr. Pibb was used instead of Dr. Pepper.
    • (C.) Doesn’t notice the soda display but offended by the women’s undergarment display in the background.
    • (D.) Simply find it funny.
  • The last handful of ‘Diff’rent Strokes’ had Janet Jackson starring as Willis’ girlfriend, Charlene. Last night was the one in which Arnold joined the ballet much to Willis’ chagrin.
  • This exchange on last night’s ‘American Housewife’ (which I’ve never watched before) gave me a good laugh:
    • What’s the difference between 1% and 2% milk?
    • 1%?
  • Not that I’ve been keeping track of her, but Sarah Palin seems to pretty quiet these days, and I’m surprised she doesn’t have at least some role in the Trump administration.
  • WFAA had a story about an SMU rape case last night and rightfully didn’t show the victim’s face, but instead showed a lot of profiles of her backside and oddly, focused on her big toe for several seconds. I understand not showing anything to identify the victim, but why do I need to see a close up of a toe in HD?
  • The one news personality that gets on my nerves is most is WFAA’s Cynthia Izaguirre. She talks to the viewer like she’s breaking news to a child their pet hampster died with the most grandiose of false sincerity in both tone and reflection. Her small talk between segments is the highest level of idocracy.
  • I’m trying to give the Trump administration a chance and look past partisan politics and focus on substantive stuff, but, yo, it’s hard.
  • Last night was the season premiere of FX’s ‘The Americans’. Not to spoil anything, but they dug a huge hole. As someone who’s lived in North Texas for almost all of my life, I wonder how hard it is to dig holes in other places of the country since all the clay in our soil makes digging literal back-breaking work.
  • Dirk now has over 30,000 points for his career. When he first came to town I was so disappointed thinking the Mavs were addicted to yet another pathetic white player like Uwe Blab, Cherokee Parks, Kelvin Cato, Bill Garnett, Steve Alford, Mike Iuzzolino, and Tim Legler.  Mavs fans don’t know how lucky they are to have him, and sadly, we’ll find out in a year or two. Thank you, Don and Donny Nelson for bringing him to town.
    • LiberallyLean readers, be prepared for a bullet point about how he doesn’t watch or care for NBA basketball and how Mark Cuban lucked into NBA success because Dirk was there when he bought the team and how he’ll totally fail in the future without him. And don’t be surprised if he thinks the picture on top of this post is a disguised ad for Coca-Cola because he’s at the point now in which he thinks everything is a disguised ad.
      • Sidenote: I once thought a lot of segments on The TICKET were nothing but a disguised ad, and many of them may be, but they once reviewed “The Book of Mormon” a week or two after the show left town, so they earned a little bit of cred with me.
  • Steve Nash, LeBron James, Magic Johnson, Ben Stiller react to Dirk Nowitzki reaching 30,000 points
  • Dirk is my favorite German ever, even more than my ancestors. More on that later in the week, or the next week, or the next.
  • ‘Dancing With the Stars’ is the modern day equivalent of ‘Battle of the Network Stars’
  • NPR – Georgetown, Texas, an exurb of Austin, is one of the first cities in the country to be 100 percent powered by renewable energy.
  • Gwen Stafani has a very thick layer of makeup on in this picture.
  • Buzzfeed – 18 Undeniable Signs You Went To High School In A Small Town
    • I thought all coaches doubled as teachers.
    • It’s not common to get stuck behind a tractor while driving?
  • This ain’t gonna make loyal reader RPM happy – Trump’s draft budget proposes billion dollar cut to Coast Guard
  • Texas A&M puts on worst recruiting visit, anonymous survey says

    Small town kid checking in.
    – I drove a pickup
    – I was in the FFA and 4H
    – Dairy Queen was the only restaurant in town that wasn't some mom & pop Mexican food place. Sonic was in the next town eight miles away.
    – That's not a tractor in the picture.

    By the way, Mr. Pibb was a novelty where I grew up. You won't find it anywhere south of Waco because the Coke distributor also handles Dr. Pepper.

    Your point about LL was pretty funny. Haven't read LL yet but I'd bet your right….and yes Dr. Pepper should of been used but I do like the display anyway.
