Tonight, I watched the silly show “SmashLab” again. Same result. Laughter. Lot’s of it. I know that I have already done a post on this but the second show was so bad that you just HAVE to tune this in and join in the fun.
Where to begin? The silly shots of the four “scientists” walking in a row, all spaced apart like they were The Beatles is lol funny. I mean shot after shot. And a disproportionate number of shots featuring Deanne, the Valley Girl/eye candy, for sure.
These 4 people offer no personality (contrast with Jamie and Adam) and are masters of the obvious. Almost all of their, post-crash or post-explosion commentary could have been written by my 8 year old nephew.
And the “Science”? Hahaha! It’s ridiculous. Today they crashed cars into concrete to see if they could invent a new Jersey Divider for highways. Yea, it seems the brittle concrete is used at the end of runways to stop planes from overshooting. Did anyone tell these genuises that you can’t put a 80 foot strip of crumbly concrete around all the major highways in the USA? My goodness it was breathtaking stupidity. How do projects like this get greenlighted? You know, watching this has me more determined than ever to shop my treatments for my two decent reality show ideas.
How would I improve the show? Ok. Start with honesty. Promo it as: “Masters of the Obvious: We break things. No science will be done and we’ve just gone ahead and put the girl in a bikini”.
In other news, I’ve had a day to digest the bail out on the baseball and I’m more certain than ever that the guy doesn’t get it and that we did the right thing. The other two guys, as predicted, are still with the team.
My latest brainstorm is to try and form a team for play in the mid to late summer and fall. See if we can cobble together a squad and do some tournaments, perhaps even drive up to Mass and play a friendly up there against a friend’s team.
While working out details in my head on the drive home, I’ve hit on the perfect name: The Good Guys. I see a logo with an interlocking GG. Color? Whichever one is cheapest. The domain is even available.
I’ve also heard from my Babe Ruth statue buyer and all is on track for a late Feb delivery date to DC, in plenty of time for the Washington Nationals’ party at the restaurant. It’s possible that they will do a little powerpoint for that gig, but I don’t know for sure. Do they know that the sculptor gave talks for 3 years all over the country and even in Europe and Asia? And that he’d be glad to speak? They will soon. Can’t hurt. And we’ve been invited back to stay at the Gaylord sometime after the whole thing gets installed and cranked up. I was very happy with that. It’s a nice place and I’d like to say that I saw it humming.
