Day Two, June 21st 2011

Last night was pretty fun, a bunch of people came out for my weekly trivia night. It’s essentially a pub quiz, for those of you who have no idea what trivia is. The theme this week was (appropriately) 1981 — some of the questions, which Don usually assembles were somewhat contrived, but its hard to come up with 15 interesting questions that people might actually get.
I’m now the proud owner of a set of ‘Bottle Top’ — a revolutionary new product for putting a flip-open bottle cap on a can of soda.

I suppose they might be useful for beer, but I really ought to stop drinking soda. Still, it gave me an idea: Over the last ten years or so, there’s been a decline in good comedy on TV, with only a small resurgence in the last year or two. At the same time, I feel as if I’ve sat through hundreds of hours of stupid commercials (and a few good ones) for various ‘As Seen on TV’ products — we need an artistic trust of some kind that will buy up these spots on late night TV for cheap and show rising and established comedians.
