Guilty Pleasures

I experienced a few of these recently so I thought I would share.

Don’t tell my wife but I enjoyed watching the Fox show, So You Think You Can Dance. I watched the first round tryouts. The judges were lame but the dancers were entertaining. I don’t watch Idol or Dancing with the Stars or any of those other talent based reality shows. I did like this one.

Galaxy Quest. This is a modestly funny movie but for some reason I watch it every time I come across it. Starring Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver (hot as always), Alan Rickman and Tony Shalhoub, the thin plot is about actors in a Star Trek-like show who get in a “real” space adventure. I especially like the Rock Creature. Look for a young Justin Long from the outstanding Mac vs. PC commercials as a Galaxy Quest geek who helps save the day.

Sports section and comics page. My first reads of the day. After that I am ready for whatever life brings.

I dare you to name three of your guilty pleasures.

    Dancing With the Stars. I liked that show.
    People Magazine. I get it when I travel. I used to have a subscription.
    Oreos. Need I say more?

    Pax, do you read the horoscopes that list a number from 1-10 on how good the overall day is going to be. 4 or less and I want to go back to bed. I am glad that I am not the only adult who still watches cartoons.

    Frank, I know what you mean about People. While I do not read the mag I always flip to the daily People page in the Trib. They put it in the front section typically between articles about the war and a political piece. BTW, Oreos are not a guilty pleasure–just pleasure.

    Actually, I LOVE the galaxy quest movie. Tim Allen does a great imitation of what I believe William Shatner’s ego would look like.

    Also….”The Rock” has been on recently on TV and again…guilty pleasure. Nothing like hearing great lines like….
    —– “You’ll try your best? Loser always talk about trying their best. Winners screw (pardon my french) the prom queen”
    —– “I’m gonna take pleasure in guttin’ you boy”

    Ah…..modern cinema!

    C’est magnifique!
