A friend of ours is a curling addict. He loves to watch grown men broom
heavy stones from one end of a frozen lake to another -- much as Pat
enjoys hauling a quart of Hagaan Daz from the freezer to the sofa. Any
way you slice it (or scoop it, in Pat's case), entertainment is an
individual matter. As they say, That's Entertainment!
So, with apologies to Fred Astair, Gene Kelly, and the rest of the stars
from the great MGM musicals of yesteryear, we proudly present our ode to
entertainment on the World Wide Web.
The Internet abounds with Web sites devoted to glitzy Hollywood films
and action games. But the best online entertainment delivers an
adventure that you can easily experience in the real world.
In that spirit, you'll want to visit The Digital City WebGuide, Microsoft Sidewalk, or any of the Yahoo!City links.
Each service offers a complete event and entertainment guide for most
major cities -- including concerts, restaurants, watering holes,
parades, art galleries, and special events. Which means you'll spend
less time finding what you want to do -- and a lot more time doing it.
(sung to the tune of ... you get the picture).
Read the sports
While you're still in your shorts.
All the stars
And the landing on Mars.
Or it's a brew
On your webtv, too
It's a soap
Or what's hot on the "Hope"
It's a sky cam
And the King of All Spam
The Web is the way.
And the farm
They're all on display.
And a quick getaway
Fireworks and ballooning
Marbles and cartooning.
The Men In Black stars
The jelly beans,
The Civil War scenes
You can bet
You ain't seen it all yet!
The World's on the Web.
The Web is a World of Netertainment!
