Here's the song stuck in my head when I just woke up for your listening pleasure while reading. (right-click open in new tab) Your text to link here...
So my San Francisco 49ers lost to the pathetic Minnesota Vikings today. And no, this isn't another American football blog our International friends, but is just leading into my train of thought. But still.... the #1 defense in the League getting outscored by a team with only 2 offensive weapons, just horrendous. "Any given Sunday."
Anyways, I got shitfaced drunk and was screaming so loud all my neighbors were screaming back at me to shut up LoL! I'll bake them some cookies or something. And, well, I'd only slept for about two hours last night before I woke up and remembered the game was on at 10am, so of course I passed out hard after the game, and just woke back up.
Among other things, like that song up there, I had the time Smitty and Seeds were cuttin' on PiratMas with the "Shmergin nergin bergin" type Swedish Chef talk from The Muppet Show stuck in my head when I woke up. I couldn't believe it when I saw it actually, cause I considered it to be extremely rude. But like most things I consider to be rude, I couldn't help but laughing my ass of at it. And that got me thinking about the late Jim Henson, and all the wonderful things his animatronics company created back when I was a kid. I mean can you even imagine where they would be at today if he hadn't died? Would be sooooooo much better than the way things went with George Lucas pioneering all this CGI dogshit. Were talking fully animated robotics here people. Things you can actually touch, and are really there!
So that's my question for the day.....
Would you rather, like me, that things had progressed further in animatronics for movies and such? Or are you happy with the current state of CGI in media?
