Those riots I was talking about earlier? Yeah, those unconfirmed reports have pretty much been confirmed. This isn’t some normal riot. Rioters don’t drag cops down off horses and start tearing into them. This is not good.

I turn on SportsCenter this morning, because I need to do something to kill a little time before work, and what do I see? The ABC News feed from New York. I have no idea what’s going on, but it looks pretty bad judging from the amount of cops in riot gear running around the reporter. This is fucking madness. I’m glad I don’t live in New York right about now. Those guys take it on the chin constantly. First terrorists, now rioting.

EDIT: Okay, turn the TV on. Seriously. Somebody tell me I’m not losing my goddamn mind here. Did Wolf Blitzer seriously just say the word ‘undead’ on CNN? This has to be a joke; surely somebody’s having fun with the teleprompter. Is everyone else seeing this?

I really think they need to change the whole emergency broadcasting system thing around. That tone and the gay-pride bars they use to denote it now are just kind of played out. They test it and they test it to the point that, whenever it goes off, I don’t even look up anymore. I just wait for it to go away or change the channel, because I know it’s never anything important.

Don’t interrupt “Aqua Teen Hunger Force” just to test your thing you test every week; it’s only a 15 minute show as it is. I know that most people are in bed by 12:30 on a work night, but I’m not, so don’t bother me when I’m watching cartoons. The show was practically over anyway, but that’s not the point.

Everything is urgent news these days. They interrupt TV for rain showers, for God’s sake. It’s thunderstorms; I’m sure the explosions and light show cued me off long before the weatherman cut in while I’m trying to watch “Jeopardy!” Don’t cut into my shows to let me know nothing’s wrong, okay? Use that little crawl at the bottom of the screen and save the weather play-by-play for tornadoes.

Blog Like It’s The End of the World is quite possibly the best idea ever.

Basically, you take June 13th and blog your blog as if you’re in the midst of a zombie uprising/outbreak. The good Romero zombies, that is; none of this fast and running business. If you don’t think I’m going to be plotting this all day today, at least in my head, you’ve lost your marbles.
