I was watching an old episode of Parking Wars as I ate my lunch. It was an episode I'd seen before but that's okay because Parking Wars rewards the repeat viewer. It's like re-reading Herman Melville.
In the commercial break they had an advert for CSI Miami on DVD.
I thought, "Hard to believe some people sit around like schmucks watching old episodes of CSI Miami -- and yet they do!"
It is quite incredible what people sit around watching on TV after hours.
Speaking of Parking Wars, I asked wife last night, "What do you think the lyrics are to the Parking Wars theme song?" It's an unusual choice for a theme song, but a good one.
I think the lyrics are, "That ain't gonna make it right / That ain't gonna make it all right / That ain't gonna make it all right now." These are the sum of the lyrics. It is also the only song I can think of that manages to credibly incorporate a "large van or truck-reversing" alarm into the music itself.
The new episodes of Parking Wars have mysteriously moved away from Philadelphia and are now featuring scenes in Staten Island and the Bronx.
The guy from the Bronx who drives a tow-truck that removes cars from private car parks. He said: "Dis tha hood so people think they can park where they like. They wrong today."
He stopped off at his toddler's pre-school and went over to peer into the playground to look for his son. When his son scrambled over, dad started baby-talking at him, "You gonna play Playstation tonight?, gonna play Batman Lego tonight?" He kissed his son through the mesh fencing. Then he turned away and said to the camera cold-blooded: "Next generation of car-towing right there."
Cody on Chef Race: "I am literally walking into a lion's den."
Another episode Cody became tearful and said to his team-mates: "I'm really impressed. Right now you
guys have got so much respect for me."
