Look! I know enough HTML to write links to other pages!

Channel 102 has finally updated. I'm really saw, however, that I'll have to wait a few more months before I see the next batch of shows.

I'm sad that Shutterbugs ended, but the finale was probably the funniest episode. I'll miss Cody Austin, though.

I don't think any new episode of Teen Homicide will be able to live up to the first one, although this month's has a good rape kit joke. I expect it to be in the top five for a few more episodes. I'll just say I wouldn't want to get into a street fight with that Jess Lane girl.

Speaking of street fights! The Block looks promising, possibly because I'm still bitter that The Fun Squad was cancelled.

Finally, The Widower is the best show on Channel 102 right now. I absolutely love it (well, except for the beatnik narrator). Also, I should mention that I also own a copy of Star Wars Monopoly. I don't know why, I don't even like Star Wars or Monopoly, but I think at the time I thought it would be a good investment. Plus, instead of houses and hotels, you place space cruisers on your properties. GENIUS.

In other news, Laurie and I went to see the Shout Out Louds last night in Wicker Park. Here are some highlights:

1. The lead singer of the Shout Out Louds looked like Jason Schwartzman but with George Michael's stubbly beard.

2. I heard these girls behind me talking about a hot coworker.
Girl: "Do you ever notice how good he smells?"
Other Girl: "Are you kidding me? I smell him in my DREAMS!"

3. One of the openers was the Essex Green. They kind of sucked. They had a flute and a ukelele.

4. During the encore, the Shout Out Louds called up the Essex Green to perform a cover of The Pogues' "Streams of Whiskey" (although I thought the lead singer said they were doing a "Poach" cover). During the song, they pulled up this bleach-blonde girl from the audience who starting doing an Irish jig. Then she tripped on a microphone stand and fell backward onto the fiddler. Fantastic.

5. This guy behind me was dancing all crazy-like to the Shout Out Louds. In between sets, people starting yelling out how much they loved Sweden, and the guy behind me said, "I LOVE YOUR COUNTRY AND YOUR FISH!" Then he said to me, "Oh, was that racist?"

tyler, something must be wrong with you because The Widower, sucks. Hard. Except for the one joke about the name that's been your away message for the past week.
