Lucky day*

In August 2004, our Bot Garden was overrun with people wanting to see a huge indoor and outdoor exhibit of Chihuly glass. I thought on this auspicious day (depending on how you count days and what you find auspicious), I’d make a positive, upbeat, artsy entry to balance this morning’s rant.

So, here’s a night-time shot of a huge Chihuly handkerchief vase (or shape made with that technique).

* Lucky because today I made two posts, if nothing else!

Dumb dumb dumb

The NBC deciders are utter idiots. The Opening Ceremonies of the Olympics are not being carried RIGHT NOW. As. They. Happen. So much for LIVE. And NEWS.

Furthermore, NBC is running a recording of their morning anchors made some other time to be broadcast now. So their current programming is not live either.

In the meantime, CNN and other international media are sure reporting. I mean geeze most anybody in Beijing can go find a huge TV screen and watch. Free. Live. But here, nope.

End of tirade.

Oh, and, PS, no, I won’t be watching the delayed “show” tonight, because it’ll be old news to me by then. You had me, and you lost me. So all you advertisers who paid big bux, too bad.
