I do not. I can't wait for the whole thing to be over with so I can stop seeing things about it everywhere. However, maybe you do.

I had just been thinking about how glad I was that The Lovely Future Mrs. Hegemon had expressed no interest in it.

I didn't even know what you were talking about when I saw this thread title. Looked it up, still don't care.

But, I can see how the sorts of people who like to read tabloids and People magazine would care. It seems like a big deal in that genre of entertainment.

I got up early to watch the Diana/Charles wedding, and I admit I will end up doing the same with this one.

Shut up !!!!

I'm curious if even most of the British care, because my understanding is that the British find the "Royals" to be, for the most part, a tourist trap.

Richard Cheese & Lounge Against The Machine is supposedly playing the reception at Buckingham Palace (and releasing a live album of said event on May 4th). That... might be worth picking up.

Are you shitting me?

EDIT!: Uhh...

http://london.richardcheese.com/

I'm not buying it. It's gotta be a joke. They're supposedly playing the reception and they have to pay for their own rooms? The need outside parties to supply keyboards and drums? They claim to be able to give away free tickets?

Yeah, this is a joke.

From Richard Cheese Dot Com (royal.richardcheese.com)


    On Friday 29 April 2011, Richard Cheese & Lounge Against The Machine will perform at the royal wedding reception for Prince William & Kate Middleton at Buckingham Palace in England!

    The "Richard Cheese: Live At The Royal Wedding" album will contain live recordings from this historic performance, and will be released mere days after the event, on Tuesday 4 May 2011!


    DIGITAL RELEASE DATE: MAY 4, 2011.
    CD RELEASE DATE: JULY 26, 2011.




You can pre-order it on the website.


EDIT: All I'll add is that they specifically stated in some of their initial Facebook posts that it was not a joke. So... I guess we'll see.

I think they do, otherwise the tabloids wouldn't be so full of stories about them.

I don't care much, but I do think Kate is cute.

I think the men don't care and the women do.
This thing is like a "chick flick" movie happening in real life. Women fantasize about their own wedding and also becoming a princess, so this is like a double whammy.

I don't know what the guy equivalent would be- the Super Bowl?

I know at least one woman who is taking a personal day from work Friday because she's going be staying up to watch on TV.

If you told me going in the royal family would get King Ralph'ed and Michael Cole would be heir to the throne, perhaps. Otherwise, no.

No, but I'm watching DolphDrew Jericho Tracker while the Lovely Mrs. attends a high tea and watches the wedding on tape delay.

I don't really care much for it, but I think it's a good thing to have. Let's think about it: what would you rather see right now:

A. Natural disasters like the earthquake/tsunami in Japan or the deadly tornadoes striking a lot closer to home here in the states this week?
B. Brutal regimes in North Africa and the Middle East mercilessly killing its citizens who are calling for democracy while most of the rest of the world turns a blind eye to them?
C. Story after story about higher gas prices while story after story accompanies it about how businesses are failing and people are having even more trouble affording those prices?
D. The usual murder headlines, like the one we have here on Long Island about someone who has killed something like 8 hookers and buried them on Lido Beach?

OR

E. A nice, if overblown, story about two people who are in love and want to celebrate it with the world.

I can understand not caring about the wedding, but I don't understand the hate some people have for others getting into it. Sometimes, it's OK to like fluff. It's a nice diversion from the rest of the stuff going around the world. And even though it isn't 'news', I'm sure most of us would prefer it to the actual news, which is pretty depressing to listen to these days.

P.S.- For all of you guys poo-pooing this wedding because it isn't 'manly', I guarantee that the majority of you were crying like ninnies at the Macho Man/ Miss Elizabeth nuptials. Admit it.

Nah - I'm not particularly interested. I mean I hope they have a successful marriage and all, but to me it's no different than Mavis and Bruce from the western suburbs getting married. I don't know them, I'm not invited and I don't care, but I hope it works for out for them.

The other thing I don't care for is the people running around here saying loudly to anyone that will listen; how stupid and medieval it all is, how the Royals are irrelevant, and dammit we should be a republic anyway.

Although I've just read tonight's TV schedule and all of the networks are telecasting it so it's going to be tough to avoid. If I start drinking now, hopefully I'll be unconscious when it starts.

Also: Queen Kate I. Not sure about that. Better than Queen Montaynah and some of the other Gen Y rubbish though.
