And now for something completely different...
All right, I've been doing a lot of writing and a lot of Entropy Gate related art so I'm going to use this space for something a bit off the norm...the other day I was watching TNN and I noticed that they were changing the name to SPIKE TV...no big deal...or is it? Spike Lee has decided that he might sue them because they are using his name. WHAT?!?!?! I guess being a mediocre film maker doesn't pay what it used to. Now get real, Mr. Lee...Spike is not yours alone any more than I could sue Allen county for the unauthorized use of my name or Allen Dairy products...But if Spike Lee is going to sue TNN (he must need the money since he hasn't had a 'hit' in who knows how long) he should concider suing some others as well...for instance...
1.Tom Petty for his song "Hey Spike what do you like"
2.The railroad co. for using railroad spikes
3.High school kids for spiking the punch at the prom
4.The director of Spy Kids because it sounds like SPIKE ids.
5.Hanna Barbara for Spike the bulldog in the Tom and Jerry Cartoons
6.Anyone who plays volley ball and SPIKES the ball.
7.Me because I sometimes call my kid Spike
Spike Lee is an idiot. This has nothing to do with Entropy Gate, or does it...perhaps it has something to do with Entropy and chaos and the fact that society is wildly spinning out of control when we have someone like Spike Lee trying to make money off of a TV station for TAKING his name!!!!! Okay...that's a stretch. I just had to vent. Now back to things that truely matter...
