Opinions | Buttercup of Doom ep 42

BODep42-opinionsAvailable FREE on: Project iRadioiTunesStitcherAndroidTune-In
and now available on Google Play Music

One for me, one for you, hell, let’s live big… opinions for everyone!! From how to deal with reviews to how to ignore the inbred, er, I mean, the uninformed stances which usually comes with a bullhorn. Editorials, politics, comedians, hell, even faith is nothing but opinion. So first we differentiate between fact, assumption and opinion, and then cover the types (tropes) of opinion, and then… Oh there’s just so much chewy goodness. And even a little commentary — because that’s yet another type of option, so I give you a link to “Don’t read the comments” by Just Between Us girls Allison Raskin and Gaby Dunn.

Metaphors rock!

Zen moments and channeling Confucius are also nice. Meanwhile, where’s my remote control?!

Someone changed the channel on my television and then hid the remote before they left the house. I was happy with my jump button being set to the news and the comedy channel. I could watch the world fall apart and then laugh for a little nervous relief. Now I’m stuck on freaking TMC.

Sure, when you can’t sleep, TMC works. Turn on an old movie and watch long dead actors and actresses in their prime while they spin some moral through pitfalls and heartache.  When you’re in the mood, fine. When you’re not, it’s like playing Gordon Lightfoot’s Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald at a party… quite the downer.

Unfortunately, technology is out to get me. New televisions require their remotes and don’t always have channel changers on the box itself… and you apparently need a special screwdriver to tear it apart and do it internally. Unlike the wise people in the lab at Phones R Us, the television manufacturers weren’t smart enough to put a page button on the set. How cool would that be? Push a button and the remote beeps until you find it. [I totally claim 10% earnings for the first television that does that!]

Don’t have a pager, don’t have a remote, and can’t stomach one more story of lost love or lives that fall perfectly into place, in the guise of mystery, family classics or even western. Good god. I could really use some South Park or even political bullshit at this point.  Instead, I guess I’ll pull the television cord from the wall and wait until someone figures out where my damn remote is hiding.
