As you can see, we didn't want him either, lol.
I kind of REALLY want that tie, Cleav.
Which news were you watching? Sky News?
I guess the nightly national news broadcasts in the US are okay (Brian Willams et al), but the so-called news networks are frankly abhorrent. Anchorman 2, amazingly, parodied what has happened in these networks rather adeptly. Local news, while less obviously biased, focus on the weather (4 or 5 times in the broadcast), sports, and banal "human interest" pieces.
But back to my most important point - real bacon. Oh, how I miss real bacon by which I mean Irish back bacon, preferably maple smoked, rindless, thick cut.
Oh, and I forgot chocolate. This Hershey's shit is, well, shit.
I stopped watching Sky rather early on in disgust. Then again, same can be said for MSNBC and Fox. I have come to the conclusion that no news broadcasts are unbiased. They simply cater to the expectations of their audience. Al Jazeera is a great example. Admittedly not a British news source (of course). When my friends from America first came into contact with it they lauded it as a truly unbiased news source because they criticized things that U.S. news sources wouldn't touch. After watching it for a while they come to realize that it isn't unbiased, it is simply news from another perspective. This is my impression of British news. It's simply news form a different perspective. When they report on the U.S., however, I do notice that they make cultural errors constantly. Anyway, that's all I have to say about that.
Living with a Brit, he balances his diet of TV news between BBC America (which is actually reasonably intelligent), one local TV news show (for the weather, among other things), and NBC/Brian Williams (at least he dresses well).
As for bacon, what Americans think of a bacon, and what Brits think of as bacon are two different food products - I can understand missing the Brit version, which I've never seen for sale in the US>
As for Hershey's, your assessment is in alignment with my own. Sadly, Hershey's makes Godiva for US consumption as well - one needs to go further afield for proper chocolate. (Lindt dark chocolate, available at my local grocer, makes an acceptable substitute for the real thing.).
El S, welcome back man!
Stitchy... baby... I think I felt it move a little. Awesome.
Returning to banal human interest pieces; here's what I'm wearing today.
