Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — Next: How long is a moment – as in “one moment, please?” When you hit 50, 60 and 70 years old, you become much more conscious of time. Could we get a little more specific here with how long you want me to wait – if you don’t mind!? I’ve got important things on my agenda, like a nap to attend to. Talk to me, Elvis.
Next: While scrolling through the cable TV menu, seeing what was on, I wondered how bored one has to be to watch a replay of the 1994 NBA draft. If watching it live 19 years ago doesn’t qualify you as borderline loser, watching it two decades later … well, I won’t go there. Go ahead, talk to me, Elvis.
Next: Remember the old variety programs on television that showcased the hottest and best talent of the day? What happened? Why has it been reduced to watching wannabe flunkies audition in futile attempts to make the big time? Admittedly, some are good, but overall, programs have downgraded the entertainment level by replacing the best performers with amateurs. Amateurs whose only ability to entertain us is, sadly, the voyeuristic exhibition we are presented with, exposing their inadequacies and lack of enough talent, ironically, to perform in front of a national TV audience in the first place. Talk to me, Elvis.
Elvis has now left the building.
“Thank you very much.”
