Saturday morning musing

I’m a semi-faithful fan of VH1 Top 20 Countdown. I watch that on Saturday/Sunday morning after I do yoga. Mostly I’d flip between that and Food Network, but nonetheless, it’s like Saturday morning cartoon for me.

This weekend, VH1 introduces the new format: VSPOT Top 20. So now, not only how Top 20 is determined is changed, instead of the methods they use before which was a mix of video spin, airplay and requests, the host is also changed.

From the colorful Aamer Haleem (and before that the pretty and plucky Rachel Perry), to some bald dude named Matt Whateverhislastnameis with an accent…oh I don’t know between them New Yawk and Bwaston accents.

The guy has no personality. Absolutely boring.

After a long time of trying to find “Contact” or “Feedback” feature on VH1.com, which by the way I don’t think it exists, I had to give in and sign up on VH1 site, and track down their message board (which for some godforsaken reason I can’t do it through Mozilla), and post my dissatisfaction with their new Top 20 format.

My god. What do they have against a simple Comment/Feedback form!??!?!?!?

So much for getting all nice, energized but relaxed from doing yoga this morning. *sigh*

Other than that, this afternoon I’m getting together with a few girl friends to watch “Brokeback Mountain” while our manly-man husbands go off and do whatever manly-man things they do.

It’s interesting to see how people react to the sound of “Brokeback Mountain”. “Urgh. I’ll never see that movie in my life time,” and “I don’t want anything to do with that movie,” are coming out of the mouths of people you thought were open-minded and open-hearted.

Oh well. That’s just too bad.

Then again, I’m more liberal than many people I guess.
