Friday Clutter

Hi everyone,

Welcome back.  How is everyone doing?  Our heat wave has begun, though Clutter Headquarters is still pretty cool.  I'll probably have to put the a/c unit in soon, though.  I asked BDH and Little Buddha if they wanted to help me with that, but they just quietly backed away from me.  That's fine, I'll take care of it myself.  However, there's other business to deal with first.  Help yourself to a nice medium iced DD, and let's wrap up the month of May by clearing out a little Friday Clutter.

The father of the suspected friend of one of the Boston Marathon bombers said his son was murdered by the FBI.  There still hasn't been a full public accounting of what happened during this interrogation after the FBI stopped claiming the guy pulled a knife on the agents.  It should be interesting to see how this plays out.

I have no idea what state Gabriel Gomez thinks he's running to represent in the U.S. Senate, but refusing to say whether he'll fight to protect insurance coverage for women's access to health care services just won't fly in Massachusetts.  It's not that hard sir.  Yes or no?  This guy is a generic GOP candidate across the board.  Bad on women's health, bad on common-sense gun control safety measures, so desperate he resorts to name-calling.  He's in over his head in this race, and he would be bad for Massachusetts.  Pass.

Which GOP congressional candidates are excited to hear that Mitt Romney will stump for them next year?  Anyone who is looking forward to that must live in a congressional district where Republicans make up at least 90% of the voting population.

Hopefully my refinancing of Clutter Headquarters will go through, because it looks like mortgage rates are on the rise.

I won't worry about what's going on with Clay Buchholz's shoulder as long as he can pitch against the New York Yankees on Sunday. 

The family of the late Penn State football coach Joe Paterno is hoping if they make noise, you'll forget that Paterno didn't do much about the fact that assistant coach Jerry Sandusky was sexually assaulting children.  Good luck with that.

The next Doctor Who Revisited special is coming.  Like I've said before, I don't know much about the 6th or 7th Doctor, so I'm looking forward to the next two shows. 

The only reason I'm mentioning that "River Song" has now been a  Doctor Who character for five years now, is that I'm somewhat freaked out that it's been that long.  It seems like I first watched that character's debut several lifetimes ago now, but maybe that's appropriate for a show about time travel.

I don't know what kind of life actor Patrick Stewart has led, but if he's only having his first pizza slice at age 72, he's made some terrible decisions in the past.  A life without a slice..or two...or five?  I don't even want to think about it.

Why is actor Tracy Morgan creating a Death Pact?

Two and a Half Men is about to become Two Men and a Woman.  First off, that doesn't flow off the tongue quite as easily and second, who is still watching this show?

Okay kids, that's going to do it for now.  Let's close out the week with a little film analysis and history lesson from the one and only Eddie Izzard in today's, "Clip of the Day."


Thanks for stopping by, everyone.  It was great to see you, as always.  I'm going to the gym after work tonight, but then I'll be back to watch the Red Sox/put in the a/c for BDH and Little Buddha, so you're welcome to join us for that if you like.  Otherwise, be good, and we'll see you again soon.  for now, that's today's Clutter, and we are outta here.
