Get ready to turn up the lights in here baby…extra bright, I want y’all to see this. Turn up the lights in here, baby…you know what I need. Want you to see everything…want you to see all of the lights…of The Weekly Static!
But before we get started and with a bucket of apologies to Kanye West and Rihanna, it’s time to cry “Havoc!” and let slip the dogs of war… because here it is!
So one more time for the people in the cheap seats, here’s a quick reminder about what this is all about: The Weekly Static is my righteously desperate-yet-endearing attempt at finding the lighter side and an interesting perspective on the past week in the land of the networks, cable, streaming, smoke signals, cloud formations, and shadow puppets.
Our goal? Pretty simple:
● Offer a blunt, honest perspective on a handful of random TV news posts from the past week that also highlights your relentless team of news-thirsty Bleeding Cool writers and the quality work they do.
● Spotlight a news item we might’ve missed that you should find interesting.
● Feed my insatiable ego with humble offerings of praise, adulation, social media shares, pizza, Superman Funkos, and a plethora of Eisner Award nominations.
