dirty street

May 9, 2009

I am a fan of Mike Rowe:  my first encounter was listening to his voiceover on Deadliest Catch.  He conveys humour, compassion, and  a little drama and suspense (but not monster-truck-pull dramatic).

When he started Dirty Jobs on Discovery Channel, there was even more Mike Rowe to love.  And laugh at.  And cringe from. 

One day last week, I was setting up to work out on the elliptical trainer, with plans to catch up on a taped episode of  Brothers & Sisters  Grey’s Anatomy  Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles ahem, Charlie Rose, of course.

When I turned on the television, I heard Mike Rowe’s voice, but it was disconcertingly out of context.  Once the projector lamp warmed up, I could see that my ears were not wrong:  Mike Rowe was on Sesame Street.

Talking with Oscar the Grouch. 

Dirty job indeed.

 

listening to: Tom Petty, I Won’t Back Down
