No Day But Today

For some reason, I really do not feel good today. I'm just really tired. Maybe it's because I haven't gone to sleep until about 2AM for about a week. Of course the hypochondriac in me swears it's a disease or something. I'm really hoping it's just the lack of sleep.  

Luckily today I discovered what I think are the actual special features of The Wire's Fourth Season DVD to be released on December 4th....

An exclusive two-part documentary – “It’s All Connected: The Wire,” featuring candid interviews with cast and crew discussing life in the city of Baltimore as depicted on the series, and “The Game is Real: The Wire,” a retrospective on the issues explored in past seasons

Six audio commentaries with cast and crew:
– Episode 1: David Simon (Creator/Executive Producer) and Ed Burns (Producer)

- Episode 4: Actor Jim True-Frost (Prez), Karen Thorson (Producer) and Kate Sanford (Editor)

– Episode 6: Dan Attias (Director) and William F. Zorzi (Writer)

– Episode 11: Actors Robert Chew (Proposition Joe), Julito McCullum (Namond Brice), Jermaine Crawford (Dukie Weems), Maestro Harrell (Randy Wagstaff) and Tristan Wilds (Michael Lee)

– Episode 12: Joe Chappelle (Co-executive Producer) and George Pelecanos (Writer)

– Episode 13: David Simon (Creator/Executive Producer) and Nina Noble (Executive Producer)

....
For my own reasons, I wish they'd have done a commentary on Episode 2. 

Also today, I found out my 17 year old cousin thought he'd be really cool and drink and drive last night, so he got arrested. I swear I feel like I'm the only one of my cousins who hasn't been in trouble with the law.

Well, in 15 minutes it's time for the second episode of Pushing Daisies. I really hope it's as good as the first. However, apparently the executive producer has gotten in trouble for constantly going over the budget and some critics have said that the visuals don't look as powerful as the pilot, but that the storyline is still great. Either way, I'd watch Anna Friel, Lee Pace, Chi McBride and Swoosie Kurtz act in anything, so I'm sticking around until it's actually pushing daisies under ABC.
