I have a confession to make, and it pains me to say it. I’m not so sure about The Daily Sampler these days. Don’t be scared, it’s not what you think. I love my little project and am proud of how it’s grown in just a year, but I’m finding less and less interest in commenting on celebrity gossip and some of the other silliness of the entertainment world. I think that’s one reason I’ve had a bit of a block the last few weeks, especially after living through life and death situations. It’s just not as fun anymore to ruminate over whether or not Kim Kardashian has had more plastic surgery (she totally has, and it looks freaky.)
I had to get that off my chest. You may notice the direction of The Daily Sampler shifting in the near future, and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t nervous that you’ll follow me in whatever that direction ends up being. I like to write, and call me shallow, but I like to write about things that both you and I find interesting, engaging, and helpful. I want to take it in a more positive direction. But I’ll still sass you- so, things won’t be that different.
This also doesn’t mean I won’t ever write about entertainment. I’m going to write about entertainment tonight, so there ya have it. Already breaking promises.
THURSDAY SMALL PLATE:
Brian Williams Raps “Rapper’s Delight” (NBC YouTube) – I have been heartily enjoying the reboot of The Tonight Show, and I’m excited to tune in every night. Last night was no exception.
