Dark Hater Answers My Philosophical Questions on Episode 36

Click here to see his blog and download episode 36.

Not only will you learn what sort of deep, troubling question keeps me awake at night, but you'll also get to hear some funny stuff and cool music.

"Has from liver transplant surgery..."

I'm glad that Gregg Allman is recovering from his surgery, but this particular headline is missing a critical word: "Gregg Allman has from liver transplant surgery". I'm thinking they meant "has recovered from liver transplant surgery". Or something along those lines. Just thought it was kind of funny.
Also, he spells his name the same way Old Gregg does.

More "Klassy" Parents

Judging from the acne, I'm guessing they're meth heads. I'm not up to speed (oh, a pun!) on my drugs though, so I could be wrong. Check out the story here.

Dead Like Me

I remember first reading about the series, Dead Like Me, a few years ago in a magazine. The writer was complaining that good TV shows, including Dead Like Me, are constantly getting axed early on while crappy shows seem to stay on the air much longer than necessary.
I've been trolling Hulu for programs to watch (actually, mainly to listen to while I work or go to sleep- I like sound while I'm falling asleep), and I found Dead Like Me.
In the past few days I've watched/listened to every episode and the movie. The movie was made a few years after the show was cancelled. It wasn't nearly as good as the series, in my opinion.
Anyway, George (nickname for Georgia) is an eighteen year old girl who is killed when the toilet seat from the Russian Mir space station blasts through the atmosphere and collides with her. It sounds ridiculous, but it is an apt mood setter for the series. It is filled with dark humor and drama.
Like the writer I mentioned before, I am surprised that the series wasn't picked up for a third season. Then again, I don't "get" a lot of mainstream, popular TV shows, so maybe I'm not a good judge of what's going to get good ratings. Still, it was a shame to watch the final episode knowing that there wasn't going to be another to watch after it. The movie was okay, but it didn't really offer an ending that felt like it resolved anything. George is still out there reaping souls, but nobody gets to watch her do it...

"Parents" and "Caregivers"

Here is a collection of articles from news sites that I was looking at the other day. I used the terms parents and caregivers very loosely in the title of this post. These stories are just sad...

Selling Baby for Meth Money

Addict Mom Linked to Baby Trade

Toddler Ingests Cocaine at Home

Smoking Baby Causes Web Controversy

Kid Shares Cocaine at Daycare

Toddler Smokes Pot, Man Gets Busted

Child Fan Drinks Beer at Ballgame

I believe these people are what Dark Hater calls raggedy motherf'ers.
