A Sure Sign of the Apocalypse

That's it. The world is going to Hell in a handbasket.

How do I know this? Well, this morning on the radio they were doing the reviews of what the movies in the theatres grossed over the week-end. There was no surprise with some of the rankings, apparently the movie featuring Eva Longoria-Parker as a bitter deceased ghost wife didn't even break the top 10 (oooh, really?), and the new one featuring Jessica Alba was right up at number two. So what was number one, you ask? Well, again no surprise, it was the 3-D Miley Cyrus (aka- Hannah $$'s Montana) concert... and here's where the Four Horsemen enter.

You see, not only was Miley Hannah Cyrus Montana's concert number one, it also grossed $29 million smackeroos which makes for some very happy theatre owners. There was such a demand for it and it made the theater owners so happy, in fact, that they'll be running more of the 3-D concerts past the original cut-off date. In doing so they're going to be bumping U2's planned 3-D theatre concert.

That's right, Miley Cyrus has bumped Bono and the Edge.

Oh look, there goes one of the horsemen now. I'm sure his friends aren't far behind. Me? I have to go make sure all the windows are closed so none of these pesky locusts that just showed up get into the house.

Back on Wednesday with more on Van Gogh!

I am so glad I really don't have to deal with kids watching this garbage (I do have to deal with neds with knives which I would still take over Hannah Montana :P)

This is why I have stopped watching tv and going to the movies. Most of it is garbage and not worth watching at all.

Whats after locusts? plagues??
(sorry the comment sounds really negative)

Naw. The worst is that Michael Vic, AKA Dog Fighting magnate, will get to keep his 20 million sign-up bonus from the Atlanta Falcons when he gets out of prison.

Jennifer- I hear ya'. I can't remember the last time I went to the movies or even rented a movie for that matter.

Lisa- I can think of where Michael Vic can stick that $20 mil when he gets out, but in his case I chalk that up to arse-kissing politics, pay-offs and idolization of people that really, and I mean really, don't deserve it.

What's the world coming to, eh?
