Who's the cat who won't back out when there's stormclouds all about? SEESE!

I have long been addicted to the Weather Channel. It's one of the few TV networks that doesn't insult me and isn't trying to sell me an idea; all they want to do is tell me what the weather is like. I also used to have a crush on one of their weatherbabes, but she's been supplanted by the glasses-wearing honey who co-hosts the Sky Sports Report on FOX Sports World.

Anyway, they do this thing called "Local on the 8s" -- it's a regular update, every 10 minutes, of your local weather. It's just a bunch of graphics flashed on the screen of the current conditions, forecast, radar, 5-day outlook, etc., and it's accompanied by music. Usually it's generic light jazz cranked out by studio hacks in between industrial training films, but at least once a day, there's a Local on the 8s segment where the music is...

...the theme from "Shaft".

I can't tell you how happy this makes me.
