Indeed, not much happened throughout the entire world in the first 31 days of 2017.
In an unprecedentedly slow month, nothing exciting, interesting or history-making took place in any populated area on the planet. No major news whatsoever.
Not since the BBC announced during their evening news program on April 18, 1930 that there was no news, and played piano music during the whole program has there been such a dearth in news.
Aside from an unexplained rise in mattresses being stolen from Boulder, CO, which really isn’t even a blip on the news radar, there wasn’t anything that took place worth taking up valuable news space.
If not for our close personal friend Erich Mrak putting out another awesome song, and two celebrity deaths, we could have taken the entire month off and tried to shed some of this holiday weight. Truth be told, we should have spent 12 hours a day in the gym rather than the 12 hours a day we spent sitting by the wire hoping for news to break.
Of course, we did find the time to go see “Rogue One.” And can we take a quick minute to say how hot Felicity Jones looked in that movie? I mean, seriously. She even made us want to watch “Inferno” just to see her in that. Boy, what a twist in that movie, huh?
Speaking of Tom Hanks movies, we haven’t yet seen “Sully.” You guys seen “Sully” yet? Probably should have made time to see that at least once if I can make time to go see “Rogue One” like 11 times. Though, to be fair, “Sully” doesn’t have Felicity Jones. Though, on the other hand, Laura Linney is in “Sully.” She’s still got it. No doubt.
But anyway, here’s hoping February brings in some newsworthy event. Or at least that February gives us the time to go see Hanks land a plane in the Hudson River.
