another bright idea
okay, this is less of a rant and more just something that i find really funny. given the recent hockey lock-out (to all you nhl fans: haw haw!), cbc is scrambling to fill saturday night after saturday night in programming. at this point, they no longer have the opportunity to show far too many hours of men on razor blades chasing a black piece of rubber with sticks. so what's their brilliant idea? movies! yep, the cbc think tank went to work and this is what they came up with. it's the most original idea since pepsi. but that's not even really the funny part. in their quest to come up with a snappy title for this slot of programming, they decide to rest on their laurels and go with old faithful. yes, that's right...they're actually calling it movie night in canada.
