Lee Majors now really has a bionic ear, just like his famous character, Steve Austin, in The Six Million Dollar Man. Except it’s a hearing aid.
- Six Million Dollar Man Now Selling Hearing Aids. Which is cool.
I just love this kind of stuff. While I’m sure Lee Majors has nothing to do with the hearing aid other than advertising, it remains a classic way to market products. And it’s always nice to see commercials about products that just, I dunno, tell you about the product. Such merchandising can help provide a nice cashflow, for a period of time, for Lee Majors kids and grandkids.
And it’s just cool. Reminds me of the old days of advertising. You go, you Six Million Dollar Man, you.
Another less interesting thing was the often tedious, yet often funny, Seth McFarlan’s Family Guy last night. The episode where Meg gets religion.
- Meg finds God on Family Guy.
Which wasn’t terrible, but Seth McFarlane’s self-back-patting self-aggrandizement of how wonderful and brave he is for being an atheist, and expressed through the family’s alcoholic dog, Brian, was tediously cliche.
First, Meg becomes religious because her family is horrible and she just hasn’t found enough secular interests to occupy her–at which point she would, presumably, give up that whole goofy “God” thing. Then, Meg feels obligated to proseltyze other people obnoxious (you know how those Christians are) . . . and then Meg, of course, takes part in a book burning. You know, like all those book burnings Christians are always do these days.
Apparently, Seth McFarlane likes to smoke the crack.
The books being burned? Well, I remember Darwin’s “Origin of Species” and a book titled “First Grade Logic” being burned. Because you know how those stupid Christians hate logic.
Oh, and Meg gets the news to report to the town that Brian–the dog–is an atheist, and then those nasty Christians keep attacking Brian wherever he goes, throwing him out of stores and bars, etc. You know, like really happens. Anywhere. Ever.
Finally, Brian convinces Meg to renounce God by pointing out that she’s ugly and her life sucks. And what kind of God would allow her to be unattracitve and have challenges in her life!
Some one is burning the first grade logic books here, and it ain’t those book burning Christians. And when was the last time a group of Christians got together to burn books?
BTW, to be clear, burning books is bad. It ain’t the answer to anything. Just so you know.
