There might be too many puns available for NBC’s newest 10PM drama Awake. But rest assured, this is not a show to sleep on. Hopefully NBC’s ratings dreams might come true with this one. Okay, I’m done for now.
Seriously, from the pilot episode alone, I’m hooked onto this show. I’ve been waiting for this show to air since I saw trailers last summer but having seen an episode, it makes it all that much more official. Maybe I’m still going through an Inception thing, but dream studies have always been an interest of mine.
Before I get into ratings jargon or what it means for NBC, I’ll explain what the show’s about and why I think you should watch it. (more…)
My fellow Indoobians have probably noticed my lack of involvement here on my blog or even on the Internets as of late. A few tweets here and there, but my presence has since been minimal for the better part of the last couple weeks.
And my absence hasn’t been intentional, but probably necessary. A now famous mantra for me is to say “life happens.” And for some reason I can’t fathom, life happens to me in great massive chunks like beef stew ought to be prepared. And kids, I’ve had a rather large serving recently and only the past few days I’ve been able to process all that life has to offer. (more…)
I had a dream last night, or maybe a couple non-related dreams all within the one night session… but a dream nonetheless.
In this dream, someone came up to me and told me that my blog and all of it’s indoobiness doesn’t stand for what it used to when I started it. I don’t mean “stand for” as in acronymically (Interesting Non-sequiturs by a Dangerously Optimistically Obsessed Boy), but the meaning behind it… with it relating to “the workforce” part of it. And perhaps that may be partially true. Besides, I can’t recall who this person was in my dream who told me this. Nor do I remember anything really specific: where I was, what I was doing, etc. I just remember what was said. And for the record, “indoob” is what happens when a compact car named “indeed” crashes into a semi-truck called “indubitably.” I’m a wordsmith, or did you already know?
The other part of my dream had to do with The Mart’s new roof being completed. Why I was dreaming about this? I couldn’t tell you. Yes, my local Mart is being remodeled, but I’m not concerned with the roof whatsoever.
So what does all this mean? I’ll tell you what… I need to hurry up and by a dream book, for one thing.
But I suppose just to remind myself who/what/why I’m writing this blog. And as far as I can tell, I’m on track to what it’s purpose is. “What is it’s purpose?” one may ask. Simply, just for entertaining enlightenment. Or maybe just for entertainment. Just some musings to help get through the day, as I do the same. Surely, later in my life, and the Indoob’s life, it might become a bigger force. I mean, there’s some potential since I own indoob.com. I now have a HQ that I can build off of. And will I! I got a new toy today that will be in a post all it’s own very soon after I learn how to use this new gadget. And yeah, that’s exactly what it is: a gadget.
We’ll discuss that later. In the meantime, I must attend to some housely duties: cleaning, groceries (restocked on the eggs of course), and I’m back playing chef again with some new menu items. Shrimp alfredo, anyone?
