Things A Blogger Might Say

Since the dawn of time, or like the '50s, television theme songs have provided eager viewers with informative plot narratives.

"Who's The Boss?" tells of the "brand new life around the bend" for Tony and Aaaaangela. "Diff'rent Strokes" tells us that "the world don't move to the beat of just one drum," no matter what Willis was talkin' 'bout. And "Perfect Strangers" tells us that "nothing's going to stop" Larry and Balki now. After all, it is their lives and their dreams.

But in a moment of Zen the other day, I realized that a game show theme achieves the same goal -- as an instrumental! Allow me to map out the mysterious catacombs of "The $25,000 Pyramid."

First, download the funky extended version of that theme song here, then, at the 20-second mark, compare it against this visual representation. Bonus points if you picture the rockingly awesome Dick Clark mugging for the camera while chatting with C-list celebrities and contestants:


There you have it. The musical equivalent of the Great Pyramids of Burbank.

The only thing I can say to this post is, "Oh boy, what exactly is Chris doing with his free time, and why?"

Haha, jk, I'm just teasing you.

I thoroughly enjoyed the title to this blog, just to let you know.
