Now, it's time to go back to the drawing board to add at least another thirty minutes of material and start gearing toward a spring run of the show.
We were followed on the bill by Johnny's Regret who rocked hard. Their show was a bit too conventional for my taste, but man do these cats have energy to burn. They did a fencing scene that floored me.
The theater was very full, a nice surprise considering it was a Thursday and raining miserably outside.
WHY ARE WE HERE?
Sometimes I get a little depressed. I read the news, I get in an argument with someone, I go into a spiritual funk and wonder what life is all about. Why are we here on this planet? Then I see something like this and it all becomes clear. We're here to have fun with robots!
THE BS NEWS QUIZ OF THE DAY
Yesterday, I asked...
34% said "snore detector"
"Manufacturers Leggett & Platt, Inc have unveiled a new bed that does NOT feature which of the following?"
- Nope. It's got one.
No one answered "wireless internet" or "iPod dock" because it does, indeed, have those.
66% got it right with "espresso machine"
According to the AP, Leggett & Platt Inc. plans to sell a tricked-out place of rest it calls the Starry Night Sleep Technology Bed, mattresses included. The bed incorporates features like wireless Internet connectivity, an iPod dock, a surround sound speaker system, LCD projector, dual temperature controls and DVR capability. No espresso machine - they probably didn't think of it - but it does include a snore detector. The bed will elevate half of the bed 7 degrees if a user is snoring and then return to the original position once the snoring stops. If you snore a second time, it whacks you with a pillow. A third time and it makes you go sleep on the couch.
The bed costs anywhere from $20,000 to $50,000 and looks like this...
Pretty sexy, eh? Well, yeah, if you're a nerd who always wanted to sleep inside of his cream-colored IBM computer from the '90's. What's with the Frankenstein bolt posts? Can we at least put a racing stripe on this thing?
