Morning Coffee (7/27/10)Morning Coffee
Good morning! Yes, you're seeing something a little different here. I've been trying to find a way to revamp my posting schedule in a way that will still make sure you get lots of content but not completely exhaust me. As part of this, Endnotes are moving to the morning - because you have more time to click links while you're waking up and easing into your day, anyway, right? - and becoming Morning Coffee, going up around 8 a.m. Eastern. These posts will still have recommended links, but they'll be a little chattier, with some commentary on the morning news and whatever personal stuff doesn't need its own post.
The rest of the new schedule: TV reviews will appear at nine and eleven, and the Song of the Day is moving to one - think of it as a nice lunchtime interlude. At three, we'll have either another TV review, if I have one, or something else to do with TV, movies, or music. The five o'clock post is reserved for book reviews and knitting pictures; if I have neither of those, it'll be whatever else I have to talk about. (And I weirdly feel like I'm being unfair to books here, but it just takes longer to read most books than it does watch an episode of TV. So that's why books only get one slot on the schedule.) So we'll try that for a while and see how it goes. I reserve the right to go off schedule at any point, of course, and I can already predict that during fall TV premiere week the schedule will be totally off as I try to watch and review pilots of new shows as quickly as possible.
Meanwhile, elsewhere in the world, Tony Hayward is stepping down, one of the missing sailors' bodies was found in Afghanistan, and it's going to be 90 again today. Sigh. And I kid you not - the traffic report on TV just gave a location based on a store that has been closed for years. No one in New Hampshire will ever call anything by its current name. Sununu is accusing Hodes of push polling. For the record, the only push poll calls I've gotten in New Hampshire have been from Republicans. And wow, they're already interviewing Hayward's replacement on Good Morning, America. And this big GMA story on Chelsea Clinton's wedding includes impressively little actual information!
Daniel Craig as Mikael Blomkvist in the American Girl with the Dragon Tattoo? Huh. Okay. He hadn't really occurred to me, but I can see that working.
Amanda Bynes has un-retired. If you care.
Should I go to the movies on my birthday on Saturday? What should I see? Inception? Salt? The Zac Efron thing? Is that coming out this week? Hmm.Posted by Kat at July 27, 2010 08:00 AM
