You used to be a Christian girl!’ And I said, ‘Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me.

Poster of the Week - Issue No. 1 - Adversity

When I started blogging, back from 2006 through January, 2010, I used to post a 'Poster of the Week' every Sunday based on the very popular Motivational Posters; Except these were the opposite.

But since Peter's Daily Blog ended, the photos have since disappeard from MySpace.  So I thought I would bring them back for those who never had the chance to see them.

Starting Alphabetically, I bring to you this week's poster, "Advsersity."

These are meant to be funny, and in no way, meant to be taken seriously.

OMG Hilarious!

A Glee Thriller for the Ages

So... not only will the Glee cast be performing in their most important gig of the season, they will be playing to millions and millions of macho dudes who watch the biggest game of the season, The Superbowl.  I just finished reading the article in the Entertainment Weekly magazine I received this week and I'm actually quite excited about it.  Well, I guess it helps that I'm an avid fan of the show, Ryan and I both are.

The costumes and makeup are simply amazing; some of the characters are hardly recognizable, unless you're a true Glee Fan.  But regardless of the outfits, the performance piece is what catches my imagination.  The New Directions kids will be performing to Michael Jackson's "Thriller" and the Yeah Yeah Yeah's "Heads Will Roll." And this will all be happening immediately after the Superbowl.

The article gives away a synopsis of the show; let's just say it will be appearing on a football field with a live marching band, spooky smoke and a performance unlike you've ever seen since the Rocky Horror, Madonna and Britney Spears episodes.

And what is Fox doing to help promote the show to all these manly men?  Sue Sylvester's Cheerios will be performing Katy Perry's "California Gurls" in scantily outfits.  "We put stuff in there understanding that there are a lot of dudes who watch the Super Bowl.  So it was making sure that the dudes who refuse to watch Glee are like, Wait a second!" claims Brad Falchuk, the co-creator of the show and who directed this episode.

Is Keith headed to CNN?

Friday night, Anderson Cooper spent, at least, the first seven minutes of his show on the fact that Keith Olbermann was fired ... I mean quit ... I mean ... that he was leaving MSNBC. I know, you must be as shocked as I am. Who knew his relationship with MSNBC would end so quickly? After all, it seems like they got along so well over the last four years.

Oh now ... come on! You have to have been living in a cave to think this would have ended any differently than it did that night. Why the big surprise? And really, who cares about the reasoning and the deal. All I wanted to know ... as I watched Anderson on Friday ... was: when is he going to announce he's headed to CNN? I was almost waiting for Anderson to spit out an on-air job offer.

"Please Keith, come to us at CNN. We have the space, and everyone knows, we desperately need your ratings! There is only so much Piers Morgan and I can do!"
It really is a no-brainer.

MSNBC is no longer an option, and clearly Fox News and Keith want no part of each other, and I am pretty sure TBS isn't going to rescue him, as they did Conan. A CNN and Keith marriage makes perfect sense. Where else is there for him to go? CNN must be his next spot, don't you think?

Looking at the CNN evening line-up it seems he could easily push out Parker/Spitzer for that 8 p.m. slot. I mean listen, business is business and the numbers are the numbers and the reality is that Olbermann's numbers blow out every single one of CNN's shows. Even Keith's 11pm re-air beats their prime-time line-up.

Regardless of whether you like Keith or not, regardless of whether he is an easy person to work with or not, he will anchor again — because he's got what it takes to bring in the viewers.

Here is his good-bye from Friday night:

Do you think he's heading to CNN?
