Thusly:

IP Address: 171.###.###.# (Bank of America)
ISP: Bank of America

Search Engine: google.com
Search Words: how tall is christina loren”

Sorry, unknown Bank of American,* there are some answers that even Google doesn’t have, like how tall Christina Loren is.

But, thanks for asking.

All right, keep up the good work, BofA workers!

Ah, memories:

“Speechless I am.

At first I thought this website was made by a fan of KNTV’s Christina Loren. But now I’m thinking it’s her site.

Anyway, here it is.

Oh, wait a sec, here it is, shrunk 4x. I’m still blown away by this:

It’s like the front page of the Daily Prophet. It’s mesmerizing. It just keeps going and going…

Now that’s what I call Bay Area Journalism!”

*That’s what they call each other, I’m srsly.

Who at KNTV NBC Bay Area Channel 3, Channel 11 Considers Bay Area Women “Unkempt?”

Friday, June 3rd, 2011

I know, but I won’t tell you.

Now, who at KNTV NBC Bay Area Channel 3, Channel 11 thinks that popular METEOROLOGIST Christina Loren is part of something that is “bridging the gap between the way other big markets present news and how we do it in the Bay?”

Again, IKBIWTY.

But, one might get the feeling that certain person(s) at KNTV want to shake things up ’round here.

I’ll tell you, I don’t look at the KNTV ’cause my rabbit ears can’t pull in the signal from Down South, but that ad campaign they put up last year was jarring, it seemed like something not very bay area at all.

We’ll see how it goes…

 

Oh No! Stock Up on Refreshing Anheuser-Busch “Tilt” Energy Drink Now Cause It’ll Be Limited to Just 8% Alcohol Soon

Wednesday, June 1st, 2011

It’s happening again! Our corporate overlords at Anheuser-Busch have agreed to lower the alcohol content of Tilt from today’s 10-12% all the way down to a maximum of 8%.

First they came for the Sparks
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a Sparkser. [Orange, yish.]

Then they came for the Booya Espresso Silver Tequila with Caffeine
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a Booya Espresso Silver Tequila with Caffeine drinker.

And then they came for refreshing Tilt Premium flavored malt beverage RED BLUE AND GREEN
and there was no one left to speak out for me.

Oh well.

Farewell to the whole Tilt Family.

It was a good run…

How Taiwan Does the Weather Vs. How San Jose Does the Weather – Christina Loren and “Extreme Weather Educating”

Thursday, May 12th, 2011

Let’s see here, our first video is what popped up after I linked to the internationally-famous NMA joint about Twitter extortion in the Mid-Market area the other day.

Now, compare and contrast with KNTV, the closest thing the 415 has to an NBC affiliate.

Cue the young boy and… action:

Christina Loren:

Controversial, and

Wears a hat, sometimes

OMG, NBCBayArea’s New “Weathergirl” Christina Loren Wears a Hat! Plus Rich Lieberman is NOT Infatuated, No Way

Monday, May 2nd, 2011

I’ll tell you, my rabbit ears (avec free govmint digital cable converter box) couldn’t even dream of picking up the KNTV from all the way down in San Bruno or wherever, so I never see the Channel 3.

But lots of you do, apparently, based upon all the recent fuss about newly-installed meteorologist Christina Loren.

Per Jane B:

“I enjoy the NBC news in the morning, but as soon as that bulging self-promoting common tart of a meteorologist appears with her forced Good Morning, I just can’t wait to change channels for the duration. I would have thought NBC would have been more concerned with professionalism in their meteorologists than with this very poor image that it presents daily. And then to add insult to injury, she turns up this a.m. with a hat, supposedly, I suppose, to be in the spirit of the royal wedding – what an insult!”

Exhibit A, the “insulting” hat in question:

Now, with an opposing viewpoint, here’s the wedding hat minority report from Christina’s FaceBook fans:

O.K. then.

Comes now Rich Lieberman, who’s not infatuated with “The Hottest Weather Woman On The Planet,” not in the least, why would you even think that, to post an interview with CL, who ably strives to stay AOM, Always On Message, about being AAMF, All About My Forecast. See?

All right, it’s time to sign off with all the banal slogans used by KNTV over the recent decades:

Station slogans

  • Look to 11 (1972-circa 1975)
  • We`re The One Can Turn To, Channel 11 (1978-1979; localized version of ABC ad campaign)

TTFN!

NBCBayArea’s Christina Loren has got to be The Most Controversial Weather Personality in San Francisco History

Wednesday, April 6th, 2011

[UPDATE: OMG, Christina Wears a Hat! Controversy ensues… And, does Christina think that Bay Area women are generally “unkempt?“]

People are still upset about the San Francisco Bay Area* NBC affiliate’s new “weather girl.”

Anyway, here’s the comment from Katrina from yesterday:

Christina Loren is really disturbing to watch. Today her white shirt is busting (pardon the pun) at the seems. Aren’t we done with this kind of sexiest marketing? I no longer want to watch this morning show due to this clueless barbie doll projection of a wanna be women.”

I’m trying to see the problem here, if this is the right video snip.

Seems as if a lot of people complain about her (cause man, some of her promotional videos were over the top), but it also seems that Channel 3 has toned things down a bit lately, for what that’s worth…

(If there’s one thing I can’t stand for, it’s TV weather. They’re spending like three minutes telling people something that should take three seconds, IMO. Oh well.)

*”San Jose, Oakland, San Francisco” in that precise order – that’s the priority of KNTV, per some of the people that work there.

NBC San Jose Crows About Its Beautiful New Weather Girl

Wednesday, January 19th, 2011

See?

I’m speechless.

I understand where you’re coming from, KNTV, but I think you’re taking things too far.

For some reason NBC’s “beautiful” San Jose affiliate sees fit to advertise itself on Market Street, San Francisco, USA

Remember when San Francisco had the NBC? I do.

Remember when rabbit ears could get you more than two channels* (5 and 7, most of the time)?

*My decades-old Trinitron idiot box (circa 1990, Euro design from Sony, 32 incher) is down to just two channels these days, and there’s nothing on. Kell domage.
