Welcome back! We are nearing the weekend and your old pal Neyland D. Catt is here to help make the last leg of the journey more enjoyable. Or more surreal anyway! Today is the long anticipated return of the Cheerz and Jeerz. What sets this feature apart from others with similar names? The quality? The creativity? Nope. The "z's" at the end. Gives us mad street cred too. Makes it seem hip and cool to the youngsters. We are even considering changing it to "Tha Cheerz and Jeerz" because a "Tha" brings more street cred than one can realistically expect in one lifetime.* Anyway... on with the show!
CHEERZ - The Beatles are finally on iTunes
At long last the lads from Liverpool grace the internet music scene legally. I'm sure no Beatles fan has already found a way to have their music on an iPod. Right? The Fab Four are now digital and there is no going back. Now we can all go back to hoping there is some long lost "new" Beatles song that will be released unexpectedly.
JEERZ - Lady GaGa is still on iTunes
Geez. How long does 15 minutes last these days?
CHEERZ - New Harry Potter Movie!
At last a new Potter film is upon us and the end of the franchise is in sight. Ah, I remember when those crazy kids first appeared on our screens back in 1964. They took America by storm. No. Not the Beatles. The Potter kids. Geez. The dude that plays Harry just had a mid-life crisis while filming the last movie. Ron's walker had to be digitally removed from the footage. At least they won't have to worry about being type-cast when the series is over. They will be retired.
JEERZ - A New M. Night Shyamalan Movie!
In his latest effort to reduce the population of the world to drooling lunacy, M. Night brings us the story of a director who has one good film to launch his career and then spends the rest of his days flinging feces around like a monkey in a cage. Watch out! There will be a shocking twist at the end!
CHEERZ - Facebook offers e-mail!
Great! Now we can all be COMPLETELY connected through the Matrix... I mean Facebook... all the time! Plus, Facebook will now have way more information about you that can be accidentally accessed by Ham radio operators and any aliens who happen to pass too close to our planet.
JEERZ - The Great Facebook vs. Google War
It's the innocent victims I worry about in this upcoming conflict. Armies of digital information brokers meeting on a virtual battlefield are never a good thing. We can only hope that there will be a peaceful resolution. Maybe even an alliance. They could merge into one mega-service called GooglyFace. It wouldn't do anything, but would have a really cute logo with googly-eyes on a smily face and you would instantly be friends with everyone in the world. Except people who use Myspace. And M. Night Shyamalan.
See y'all tomorrow with something random from my brain!

* Neyland doesn't actually understand what street cred means. I'm not exactly sure what he thinks it is, but he probably thinks it has some bearing on his credit score.
