Observations from recent travels

CHUM FM sign
It addition to it just being a funny sounding word, I think CHUM is a bad name for a radio station because (for me) it first invokes an image of a bucket of bloody meat

This sign more reminds me of something that you would see on the marina of Amity Island where Roy Scheider and Richard Dreyfuss would shove off to go kick some great white ass than in downtown Toronto.

The only saving grace of the movie Sahara, was that it killed two hours of a cross-country flight without making me want to kill myself… barely.

In a performance only slightly less gut-wrenching than Denise Richards as a nuclear scientist in The World Is Not Enough, Penelope Cruz made me want positively hurl as a doctor for the World Health Organization.

And it only went downhill from there.

The utterly non-sensical plot, uninspired vehicle chases and gut-wrenching dialog made me truly wonder how brain-dead you have to be before they will let you run a movie studio.

Is it me, or does it look like the New York Department of Parks and Recreation was acquired by Air Canada?

…or is it the other way around…?
