HAPPY NEW YEAR’S EVE TO ALL MY LOYAL READERS who came on to this site today and continuously check it even though it’s after noon now and there still wasn’t anything up. I didn’t have anything to write about today but then I thought of a few things to share with you.
I didn’t feel like talking about what the best of 2008 was since you can read those anywhere. I thought about going back through the year of J Beanie and pulling out the best lines and best comments but I got bored with that after three posts. So I wasn’t going to write anything but then I saw this: Media giant Viacom Inc. said its Nickelodeon, MTV, Comedy Central and 16 other channels will go dark for 13 million subscribers at 12:01 a.m. Thursday if a new carriage fee deal with Time Warner Cable Inc. is not agreed upon by then.
Now, it would suck if Comedy Central went off the air but remember one of my wishes from Beanie’s Christmas Wish List? I wrote “MTV would declare backupcy and force to go off air.” Well, this is as close to that as it will get. If only there was a way for Comedy Central to stay on and MTV never to return. Sure, there would be a lot of sad, crying, disappointed little to teenage girls (and Brother Scott) but everyone will be better off without MTV. If losing Comedy Central is what it takes to get rid of MTV, I’ll take it. The good for Comedy Central can’t even compare to the bad of MTV. It will be a much better world with no MTV.
One other totally non related to anything ever discussed on Beanie I want to address. It was about three weeks ago, right before the GF and I went to NYC. We were driving to Rosenberg’s house to pick up his GPS. When I pulled out of my street and on to a busy one, I see a bright light up a head to the left. But I didn’t know what it was?
Was it a plane? No, too close to the ground and not moving to be a plane.
Was it the blimp? No, again, too close to the ground and too small.
Was it a tower they put in and I didn’t know about it? No, it was too close to the road and I know Silver Lake isn’t building and cell phone towers.
I had to figure this out. I turned off the road in to the Village Hall which is an open parking lot and a field. There was nothing for the light to hide behind. I pulled up almost directly underneath it. I still had no idea what this thing could be. I’m staring up at and by the GF and I are confused. Then, like a scared cat, it took off. The bright light was moving across the sky like a dog had just seen a squirrel and took off after it. The light moved across the sky until it had disappeared behind some woods.
As it moved, I would guess it was no more than 200 feet in the air, maybe less. It was about the size of a large truck or conversion van. It looked like a spy plane. Maybe it was a UFO. I don’t know and we’ll never know because the GF didn’t let me chase after it. Who knows? Maybe I was abducted and probed and the aliens erased my memory. As anyone ever had something like this happen to them? Anyone have an explanation of what I saw that faithful night? I’m so confused and scared. Why would someone spy on me? Why would a UFO want to come to Silver Lake, Ohio? Nothing makes sense.
So there’s your mystery for the day. Good-bye 2008, hello 2009. If you want to know what is going to happen to 2009, go check out Graig’s site. He has nothing but good predictions and there is even a better one in his comments section. HAPPY NEW YEAR.
