Worst.announcement.ever: My dad died this morning

And as fucked up as it sounds, it was probably for the best. He was diagnosed with cancer earlier this year and while he gave it a good fight and actually looked close to beating it, things didn't turn out that way. Given his age (he was 70) and the back to back bouts of pneumonia, he just didn't have to strength to keep going. I'm just glad that he's not suffering anymore and can finally lay down his burdens and rest.

I love you, dad, and I'll see you again one day.

In the Heat of the Night had a nice theme song

In the Heat of the Night was a show I used to watch growing up and that's just recently returned to syndication on MeTV. Based on the popular 1960s movie starring Sidney Poitier and the book the movie was itself based on, the show was a bit softer and friendlier than the movie, which focused on racism in the Deep South. Racism is still addressed on the show, but it's much more toned down than what it was in the movie. Not a terrible TV show.
