Thought: My honest thoughts on UFC, why I don’t watch it much…

I’m not much of a UFC fan honestly. I just can’t see guys in a ring trying to kill each other for real. It’s too crazy and too intense for my tastes. It’s why I don’t watch UFC TV or the PPV’s much anymore. UFC is not wrestling. Even UFC never call it wrestling, they call ’em “fights”. One of these days in the future, a fighter in UFC is gonna get himself killed instantly in the ring. If there were to be the most dangerous sport, it would not be football or hockey, it would be UFC in my opinion.

A fighter named Joe Lauzon knocking out his opponent really quick is just proof how dangerous it really is.

Sorry, but I prefer just regular Pro Wrestling over UFC, you know pro wrestling with the likes of WWE, TNA, etc. The wrestling with the fake fighting, impressive stunts, and storylines where you can be entertained.

I don’t really find UFC entertaining.

Nothing wrong with other people enjoying guys killing each other in UFC for real but to me it’s pretty boring with all the kicking and punching which is pretty much all they do.

Al is the man, he’s a funny guy, I always liked him. He would be a good “Family Feud” host.

Pretty cool. If you have cable TV with the Sundance channell on it, you can watch this show then. I have the Sundance channel ’cause I have digital cable. I’ll be looking forward to seeing this.

I’ll have to tune into this to see what song they’re gonna do. It wouldn’t surprise me if it would be “Plush” or “Big Empty” so they can let the world know that the band is back.

Report: Chris Cornell speaks on Idol’s David Cook for “Billie Jean” cover…

Chris Cornell the former frontman for Soundgarden/Temple of the Dog/Audioslave recently saw David Cook’s performance of the Chris Cornell version of “Billie Jean”, a Michael Jackson cover on American Idol. Cornell says he was actually impressed with David’s singing and flattered that Cornell got the shout out on Idol. Cornell says that Cook sang the song almost note for note, sang it exactly the same way Cornell sang it. (see the videos below for proof). Cornell goes on saying that he is so proud of his version and wanted to know that he did it first.

Billboard reports:

I don’t know what Chris Cornell is smokin’, but David Cook’s voice sound nothing like Cornell’s, not even close. I totally agree that Cook sang it “great”, but no where near Cornell’s range.

Cornell should appreciate to what Cook did for him rather than putting him down, Cornell is acting like his version is better.

I dont’ watch Idol anymore but I’ll have to start watching again, I stopped watching a few years ago. I’ve been hearing that Idol has been using live bands and using real instruments more than the “karaoke” thing, which is cool.

Report: NBC kills the daytime soap opera “Passions” for good…

Since NBC cancelled the short lived daytime soap opera “Passions” last year, NBC tried to bring it back to life to bring it back to the tube. Universal Media Studios tried to help the soap find a home. The “Passions” cast and crew were once told to keep the show alive on the internet only but failed at that too. NBC killed the show because simply, no one wants it.

“Passions” is a day time soap opera created by writer James E. Reilly, the series debuted in 1999.

Variety reports:

Well, I wonder why no one wants the show. It’s because the show is simply horrible.

Nobody cares for daytime soap operas anymore because all the ratings are so low on them. Rumours are circulating all over the internet that NBC could axe “Days of Our Lives” next year in 2009. The soaps are pretty much the lowest ratings on TV right now.

Honestly though, I don’t blame the low ratings on the bad writing and acting ’cause some of them can actually be real good. I blame the low ratings on these shows because they are shown during the day where people are at “work” or people who don’t work just do things during the day and not stay home watching TV.

If some of these shows were moved to Prime Time TV, I assure you the ratings would go up then.
