Welcome to the latest edition of the Victory Formation.
I am writing this a little earlier than the usual time I am doing this. I have a football practice that I am supposedly am able to watch, observe and enjoy. Unfortunately, the effort it takes for me to whip up a post entails a lot of time. Thus, I can't watch. But I hope I can do something else instead.
Anyhow, the local blogosphere was caught off-guard by a certain article written by a known food blogger. Being a part of it here, it piqued my interest as to whom she is referring to. From what I see online and in the differing conversation streams, no one really knows or if they know, they're not telling. Reaction has been fast and quick all around. All I know is that this happens within traditional media and just made its entry into the online realm.
Meanwhile, I recently managed to stumble into a couple of musical documentaries, one about Woodstock that had Martin Scorsese's involvement and the other is the U2 documentary Rattle and Hum. Looking at the classic Woodstock footage was surreal considering the era and awesome artists who were there for the ride.
