There's Many Places Like Home, But No Place Like LiveJournal

Well, on the plus side, I don't have to review the new Toby Keith album (as it IS number 1 this week on the charts).

On the downside, the server went down yesterday afternoon, the site I've been writing for has been shut down, so here I am. Back in the LiveJournal fold; for now. I feel like I just got dumped by the head cheerleader, but not to worry! The band geek with the braces and acne problem will take me back!

Look, I like the LiveJournal format and all that, but there's something to be said for the validation received by complete strangers who think your writing is good enough to be on their site.

I'm hoping they get their problems in order and hire back the entire writing staff, but the e-mail I read last night sounded pretty bleak.

Anyway, back to the grind. At least this way I can talk about the TV shows I've been watching again. I don't know if you've seen this terrifying show called Oz, but it's about prison life and prison rape and prison violence and prison breast cancer and prison insanity and prison penis-biting. And prison putting ground up glass in someone's food over a long period of time until blood comes out of every hole on their body and they die. And prison love ... awwwww.

Oh, OK, so you know the guy who's like the Chief of the Daily Bugle in those Spiderman movies? He's been in other stuff (surprisingly enough, he hasn't been in 24 yet), but I figured this would be the best way to relate him to a vast array of people. Anyway, his name is J.K. Simmons, and on Oz, he is the biggest Nazi asshole I've ever seen EVER.

And Carmella from the Sopranos is on this show (which is too weird, even though her appearance pre-dates the first Sopranos episode) and Winston Zedmore from Ghostbusters is the warden and Ryan Chapelle from 24 plays this jack-off security officer with a Bostonish accent. Oh, and Rick Fox plays a prisoner and L.L. Cool J plays a prisoner, but they're just God-awful.
